Premier League Transfer Rumours: Gibbs, Lozano, Asamoah, Grigg and More

Who’s the little-known player who Manchester United are said to have made approaches for? Which Juventus player is said to be free to join Chelsea for the right price, and could there be a transfer between Arsenal and Liverpool?

Dive into Monday’s rumours and have a look…

13. Sunderland Target Willing to Leave West Ham This Summer


​The ​Evening Chronicle report that Sunderland target James Tomkins is happy to leave West Ham this summer, after falling out of the team at Upton Park at the end of last season.

The 27-year-old was a regular starter when playing under now-Black Cats boss Sam Allardyce, but has slipped out of favour under Bilic over the last few months – and could be set to link back up with Allardyce in time for next season.

12. Hull City Linked With Viral Sensation Will Grigg

Northern Ireland v Belarus - International Friendly

​Will Grigg – as we’ve been told for the last month or so – is on fire.

His 25 goals from 40 Championship games this season just gone propelled Wigan to promotion, but the Northern Ireland international could leapfrog the second tier and jump straight into the top flight with Hull City.

The ​Hull Daily Mail report that the newly-promoted Tigers have been linked with the 24-year-old, as have Scottish champions Celtic.

11. Crystal Palace Set to Offer Newcastle Chance to Sign Dwight Gayle

Crystal Palace v Stoke City - Premier League

​Newcastle United look set to be offered the chance to sign Crystal Palace forward Dwight Gayle, as the Eagles look to offload some of their misfiring attacking stars.

Gayle signed a new contract at Selhurst Park just a few months ago, but the ​Evening Chronicle report that he could be offered up to the Magpies on either a loan or permanent move.

10. Stoke Emerge as Leaders in Jack Grealish Race

Aston Villa v Southampton - Premier League

​​The Sun report that Stoke City have emerged as leaders in the race to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish after the Midlands club were relegated last month.

The Potters are thought to be keen to give the 20-year-old a second chance to prove himself in the top flight, as Mark Hughes looks to secure cover for the injured ​Ibrahim Afellay.

9. Watford Close in on Loan Signing of Arsenal Star

Hull City v Arsenal - The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round Replay

​Calum Chambers has fallen out of the Arsenal team of late, but the ​Daily Mail report that the 21-year-old could be set to get a chance to prove himself in a season-long loan at Watford next season.

Arsene Wenger is unwilling to completely give up on the man who he signed as a teenager for around £16m, but looks set to send the youngster out on loan in an effort to restart his development – with former club Southampton also said to hold an interest.

8. West Ham to Push Ahead With Simone Zaza Move


​The ​Express report that West Ham are looking to press ahead with a move for Juventus forward Simone Zaza, as they continue to look for a big-name striker to lead them at the Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers are said to be willing to meet Juve’s £23m valuation in order to get the move finished before Euro 2016, but the Italian champions are said to want to keep hold of Zaza until Alvaro Morata’s situation is cleared up.

7. Southampton Fear Losing Fraser Forster to Everton With Ronald Koeman

Leicester City v Southampton - Premier League

​Southampton now look almost certain to lose manager Ronald Koeman to Everton in the coming days or weeks, and the ​Sun report that the club’s latest worry is that star goalkeeper Fraser Forster could be set to follow the Dutchman to Goodison.

The Toffees have struggled between the sticks over the last 18 months, but England number two Forster is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s best stoppers – and the 28-year-old could be tempted by the prospect of continuing his Saints boss.

6. Leicester to Rival Tottenham for Highly-Rated Southampton Midfielder

Southampton v Crystal Palace - Premier League

​Leicester City could be set to challenge Tottenham for Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama this summer, with an approach likely if the Foxes lose France international N’Golo Kante.

The ​Daily Star report that Leicester could jump ahead of Spurs in the race for the Kenyan international, who has just a single year left on his contract at St Mary’s.

5. Manchester City Close to Securing Second Guardiola Signing


​Russian outlet ​Sports Daily claim that Ukrainian teenager Oleksandr Zinchenko is close to joining Manchester City this summer, claiming that the move is as good as done ahead of Zinchenko joining up with the Ukrainian squad in France for Euro 2016.

The 19-year-old currently plays for Russian Premier League side FC Ufa after failing to break through at Shahktar Donetsk, and last month became the youngest ever scorer for the Ukrainian national team.

4. Schalke Set to Challenge Liverpool and Spurs for Cameroon Centre-Back


Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with a move for ​Cameroon centre-back Nicolas N’Koulou, who will be available on a free transfer this summer, but ​Talksport report that Bundesliga side Schalke are set to challenge the pair for the 26-year-old’s services.

Lazio are also considering offering a deal to the Marseille defender, whose contract at the Ligue 1 club ends next month.

3. Liverpool Set to Make Approach for £12m-Rated Arsenal Defender


​Kieran Gibbs’ spell at Arsenal could be drawing to a close after a dozen years with the north London club, with reports that the 26-year-old is yet to sign a new deal at the Emirates.

​Football Insider claim that Liverpool are preparing a bid for the £12m-rated defender, who has fallen uncomfortably far behind Nacho Monreal in Arsene Wenger’s plans at left-back, as they look to replace Alberto Moreno.

2. Juventus ‘Won’t Stand in the Way’ of Midfielder Joining Chelsea

Juventus FC v Empoli FC - Serie A

​Juventus are thought to be willing to let midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah join up with former manager Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge this summer, with the Ghana international missing much of last season with injury issues.

​La Gazzetta dello Sport report that a bid in the region of €20m would be enough to bring the 27-year-old to England, after four years in Turin following a move from Udinese.

1. Club Official Confirms Manchester United Approach for Mexico International


​Pachuca vice-president Andres Fassi has revealed that Manchester United have made approaches to sign the club’s 20-year-old Mexico international Hirving Lozano, telling ​Record MX: “There have been approaches [from Manchester United]. There will be time to focus on the future of Hirving Lozano.”

The youngster won his first international cap earlier this year after impressive domestic form, and scored his first international goal in a World Cup qualifying match against Canada in March.
