We’re back with another round-up of the latest Premier League transfer rumours, as clubs emerge from the gruelling festive schedule with an eye on additions.
Here are some of the latest transfer rumours involving Premier League clubs, from January 4.
Premier League Transfer Rumour Mill: Salah to shun Saudi.
Liverpool turned down sizeable wad of Saudi cash in the summer to keep hold of Mohamed Salah, a decision which has been vindicated as the Egyptian leads the league jointly for goals (14) and assists (8) this season.
Despite continued speculation surrounding another Middle Eastern bid, Football Transfers and the Anfield Watch are now reporting the 31-year-old is instead leaning towards an Anfield extension.
That good news for Liverpool might just spell bad news for Manchester City, with transfer expert Rudy Galetti claiming the big-spending division will instead turn to Kevin De Bruyne in search of the latest marquee import from Europe.
Kylian Mbappe, who turned down a world-record move to the Saudi Pro League of his own in the summer, has claimed he is yet to make a decision on his future beyond this season. PSG, who are resigned to losing arguably the world’s best player on a free transfer, will take little comfort from his cryptic comments.
Elsewhere, the Evening Standard report that Manchester United have joined Liverpool in taking a liking to Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise, while the Eagles could look to soften the blow of Olise’s exit with the signing of Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, says Ben Jacobs.
Reports from France have said that Wolves and Fulham will battle it out with Lyon to sign out-of-favour West Ham winger Said Benrahma, whose role in the club’s cup-winning success last season has been a regular role on the bench this time around.
There’s also a family affair at Wolves, who talkSPORT have revealed are in talks to sign Noha Lemina. The teenager, who is on loan at Sampdoria from PSG, is the younger brother of the club’s in-form midfielder, Mario.
