Klopp is obsessed with Dembele

Today’s rumours start with Jurgen Klopp who is apparently obsessed with Ousmane Dembele, which doesn’t sound at all healthy.

According to SFR Sport (via Metro), Klopp has always had a thing for Ousmane ever since he joined Borussia Dortmund.

Apparently he’s now going to explore the option of signing Dembele on loan with an option to buy.

Rabiot has not renewed with PSG

Mundo Deportivo have been reading French newspaper L’Equipe where the talk is all about how Adrien Rabiot has not renewed with PSG.

Rabiot was a target for Barcelona last summer and has already said he does not know if he will be at PSG next season.

His deal expires in 2019 but his current stance makes his future pretty uncertain and PSG are not too impressed with the player or with Barcelona. Shame.

Juventus still keen on Digne

Staying with MD and they are all aboard the Lucas Digne to Juventus train. The Serie A side want him as a replacement for Alex Sandro who is expected to depart.

They are hopeful they can land the Frenchman for about €15 million and could even close a deal before the start of the World Cup.

Juve are also hoping to bring in Hector Bellerin as cover for Stephan Lichtsteiner and could also try to bring back Alvaro Morata.

Iniesta’s future gets complicated

Andres Iniesta was expected to have a deal to the Chinese Super League signed, sealed and delivered by now but it’s not quite happened.

In fact it’s all got a little complicated. Marca say he’s going to Chongqing Dangdai Lifan or maybe Vissel Kobe in Japan.

Meanwhile, Sport reckon he could actually end up in Australia’s A-League. Maybe he should just stay in Barcelona?

Andre Gomes to Wolves?

And finally today we end with news of a new destination for Andres Gomes. Apparently, Championship winners Wolves are a potential option.

Sport reckon Gomes will leave and could get the chance to impress admirers at the World Cup.

Valencia, Celta and Betis are options in La Liga and Tottenham remain interested. However, Wolves are also a possible destination made more attractive by manager Nuno and Jorge Mendes who has been working with the club.
