Transfer Talk: Juventus will look to Kane if Icardi goes elsewhere

0 0

The coronavirus outbreak has made the summer transfer window uncertain, but here are the new rumours floating around Europe’s big leagues and beyond.

Juve monitor Kane as part of back-up plan

World Cup Golden Boot winner Harry Kane is being considered as a backup target by Juventus should their attempts to prize Paris Saint-Germain loanee Mauro Icardi away from Inter Milan prove unsuccessful.

Kane, 26, has attracted the interest of Manchester United in particular in recent months. But now Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri is reportedly monitoring the striker and is happy to play the waiting game to understand the Tottenham striker’s new market value amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The extraordinary report published by Calciomercato does, however, add that the most likely outcome at this moment in time is for Kane’s contract at Spurs to run its full length until the summer of 2024 should no club be prepared to part with at least €150 million.

Icardi, meanwhile, remains Juventus’ No. 1 target for the next transfer window.

Mourinho targets out-of-favour Dalot

With Aaron Wan-Bissaka enjoying an outstanding debut season with Manchester United, Diogo Dalot has found himself out-of-favour with the Premier League giants.

According to the Sun, Dalot could soon be reunited with former manager Jose Mourinho at Tottenham as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to raise funds to bring in Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho for a whopping £120m.

Dalot earned Mourinho’s praise during the former’s spell at Old Trafford, but the Portuguese full-back has been restricted to limited minutes this term. Dalot, who arrived at Old Trafford from Porto in summer 2018 for £19m, could see his stay at United end prematurely should a suitable offer come in.

The Sun’s report adds that Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira and Paul Pogba could all also be sold with Solskjaer expected to complete a squad overhaul this summer.

Everton lead the race to secure Turkish star Under

Everton are in pole position to secure the services of Turkish sensation Cengiz Under from Roma this summer, though they are set to face strong competition from La Liga outfit Sevilla.

That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the 22-year-old midfielder — who has been capped 19 times for Turkey — is likely to depart the Stadio Olimpico for less than Roma’s original €40m price tag amid interest from several high profile European clubs.

The report doesn’t rule out the possibility of Everton parting company with striker Moise Kean as part of a possible swap deal to bring Under to Goodison.

In addition to interest from Everton and Sevilla, Italian giants Napoli and AC Milan are also understood to be interested in Under. Milan came close to signing Under in January, though a swap deal with Suso proved unsuccessful. Milan are said to be willing to pay only €20m for Under’s services.


– Paris Saint-Germain are expected to swoop for Tottenham defender Danny Rose this summer, according to Football Insider. The French club is understood to have monitored Rose throughout February and March during part of his loan spell with Newcastle United.

Manchester City will have to cough up between €70m and €80m if they are to prize central defender Milan Skriniar away from Inter Milan. The Slovak defender has long been a target of Pep Guardiola, and now Calciomercato claims Premier League champions City will be forced to splash at least €70m if they are to get their man.
