Here’s your daily round-up of the latest transfer gossip from World Soccer.


Let’s start by taking a look at what would be one of the more surprising deals of this summer’s transfer window. According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are showing interest in Chelsea midfielder Jorginho. Although this news seems to have come out of nowhere, it’s a deal which could make sense for all parties.

Chelsea’s Italian midfielder Jorginho (R) has a penalty saved by Liverpool’s Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in London on September 20, 2020.

The Gunners had identified Lyon’s Houssem Aouar and Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey as their main targets for the summer window, but having failed to make any kind of breakthrough on either, it now seems that they might look elsewhere.


With Dean Henderson now battling with David De Gea at Old Trafford to be first-choice goalkeeper in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side, Sergio Romero has fallen even further down the pecking order.

According to The Sun, The Toffees are lining up a move for the 33-year-old, as pressure grows on Jordan Pickford. Pickford hasn’t made the best start to the season under the management of Carlo Ancelotti, and it’s no surprise that he’s on the lookout for a new goalkeeper.


Staying with Manchester United, and The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for Porto left-back Alex Telles this week. However, according to the Guardian, the 27-year-old defender is unhappy with his club’s asking price of £18.3 million.

Porto’s Brazilian defender Alex Telles (R) vies with Braga’s Portuguese defender Ricardo Esgaio during the Portuguese League football match between FC Porto and Sporting Braga at the Dragao stadium in Porto on September 19, 2020.

He feels it’s an unrealistic fee considering that he’s available on a free transfer next season. It’s fair to say that The Red Devils have been reluctant to pay over the odds for anybody this summer, but there’s growing pressure from the club’s supporters for the hierarchy to back Solskjaer more in the transfer market.
