Transfer News Live: The deals likley to be done this week

July 28, 2019

Paulo Dybala to Tottenham

Yes, you did read that correctly. Believe it or not Spurs have been linked with a move for Juventus’ Argentine striker Paulo Dybala. This one has seemingly come out of nowhere, and quite rightly Spurs fans are getting very excited about the prospect of seeing a world class talent like Dybala make the switch to North London.

So, the question is, could this huge deal be realistic? Well, it’s thought that a bid of around £80m would be enough to convince Juventus to part ways with him, they’ve made quite a few signings so far this summer and with Ronaldo showing no signs of retiring, they may see cashing in on Dybala as a way to balance the books this summer.

Whilst we think that Spurs could pull this off ,we think we may have to wait until closer to Deadline Day if we’re to see Dybala shaking hands with Daniel Levy.

One thing is for sure though, if Spurs can do this deal then it would be a huge statement of intent from the Londoners.

Likely to be done this week: 2/10

Tottenham to win the Premier League – 18/1

Everton to Arsenal

Arsenal have been linked to quite a few wingers so far this summer but have failed to sign any. The arrival of Dani Ceballos has, however, bolstered their attacking options but the need for a winger remains.

The latest winger to be linked with a move to North London is Gremio and Brazil international Everton Soares, the 23-year-old is thought to be available at around £35m and with new Technical Director Edu’s strong links to the South American market it’s thought Arsenal could easily get a deal done should they so wish.

One wonders however if they’re lining Everton up as a second choice should they not get their top target Wilfried Zaha.

Likely to be done this week: 3/10

Arsenal to finish in the top four – 6/4

 

Sean Longstaff to Manchester United

This is a rumour that’s been rumbling on all summer, but surely if it’s going to happen it’ll be happening soon. United haven’t shied away from the fact that rate Longstaff and see him as a part of a new look central midfield for years to come.

Like always, when Man United are after a player the asking price always skyrockets. Newcastle have said you can have him, but only if you meet our valuation of £50m (a huge fee for someone who’s only made 8 PL appearances). They rate the 21-year-old very highly and do not want to let him leave ‘on the cheap’.

According to the Metro, new Magpies manager Steve Bruce is adamant that Longstaff will not be sold to Manchester United. However, we know that he will have little say in the matter should the club receive a sizable offer.

Man United are thought to be on the verge of submitting a £35m opening offer which is likely to be rejected. However, fans will be fearful that Mike Ashley will see Longstaff as a nice pay day. If it does happen, then we see the fee being somewhere around the £40-45m mark.
