Transfer Balls: Rounding up the day’s football tittle-tattle so you don’t have to…
Man Utd Sweet On Schneiderlin
Considered by many to be headed for Arsenal, Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin now looks set for a move to Manchester United, according to the Mirror. The 25-year-old is desperate for Champions League football and would provide Manchester United with some physical presence in front of the back-four.
Available for around £25million, the anchorman seems like the perfect fit for the Red Devils, although don’t rule out the Gunners on this deal yet.
Liverpool Lay In Wait For Lacazette
Ligue 1 player of the season, Alexandre Lacazette, has been linked to pretty much every big club in the Premier League, with Liverpool the latest club apparently eyeing the 24-year-old. The Metro tells us that the Reds have already begun negotiations for the French international who netted 31 times for Les Gones this season.
A whopping £35million fee has been slapped on the star, but with Brendan Rodgers desperately in need of some top-class attacking options, Lacazette would definitely will a void at the Anfield club.
Dann The Man For Everton
Everton are eyeing a move for Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann, accoring to Shoot magazine that is. The Eagles’ club captain has impressed under Alan Pardew with his performances catching the eye of Toffee’s boss Roberto Martinez.
With Everton leaking goals all season, the need for some defensive experience is apparent with the 28-year-old Dann a safe, if uninspiring choice for the Merseysiders. However, Palace will surely not want to see their club captain leave this summer.
Falcao Eager For Blues Move
Shipped out by Manchester United, Colombian hitman Radamel Falcao has already been linked with a surprise move to Chelsea this summer. Now the Express tells us that the Monaco superstar is even willing to take a huge pay cut in order to join the Premier League champions.
Currently on a whopping £265,000 per week, the 29-year-old is desperate to stay in the Premier League despite flopping at Old Trafford. And with Jose Mourinho looking for an experienced striker to replaced the departed Didier Drogba, Falcao would be a more than decent option. It still looks unlikely to me, however.
