Barcelona keen on Lozano

Today’s rumors start with news that Barcelona are apparently keen on Mexico’s Hirving Lozano after missing out on Antoine Griezmann, according to ESPN Mexico.

The man known an ‘Chucky’ starred for PSV Eindhoven last season and got pulses racing with Mexico’s winner against Germany at the World Cup.

PSV want €50 million and Barcelona aren’t the only club interested in his services with several Premier League clubs believed to be keen too.

Everton targeting De Ligt

Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt just refuses to stay out of the gossip columns, and the latest reports say that Premier League side Everton want to bring him to England.

The Telegraph reckon that new manager Marco Silva wants to bring him in, but there may be a problem as he could cost a whopping £50 million.

Premier League champions Manchester City are also believed to be interested despite spending big on Aymeric Laporte in January.

Vidal’s agent in Milan hoping to seal Inter switch

Over in Italy Aleix Vidal’s agent has been spotted, and he is set for talks with Inter Milan over a move for the Barcelona player.

Inter are in need of a right-back and Vidal could be their man, although Barcelona are pretty fed up with Inter over negotiations over a permanent move for Rafinha.

The Serie A side have refused to meet his asking price but if they did snap up the Brazilian Barcelona would probably let them have Vidal too.

Barcelona name their price for Gomes

Staying in Italy and there’s word that Juventus have decided they may be willing to take a punt on Andre Gomes.

Mundo Deportivo reckon that Barcelona have decided they want €22 million for the midfielder and if Juventus can find that kind of money they can have him.

The report rather optimistically reckons there are Premier League clubs interested too which could drive the price up even further.
