Friday 27th May rumours
Daily Mail: Richarlison wanted by the likes of Real Madrid, PSG and Tottenham
Having found some late-season form to help keep Everton in the Premier League, Richarlison could leave Goodison Park this summer. Several clubs have shown interest in the 25-year-old, including Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Spurs.
FPL Comment: With two years left on his contract, Everton may opt to cash in now to solve their financial mess. Six goals and two assists arrived in the Brazilian’s last nine games, including a Double Gameweek 37 score of 19 that many chose to captain.
Daily Mail: As well as Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal want Man City’s Zinchenko
Mikel Arteta is still on good terms with Man City players and staff after his spell as Pep Guardiola’s assistant manager. Heavily linked with forward Gabriel Jesus, there may also be a swoop for Oleksandr Zinchenko if City do indeed move for Brighton’s Marc Cucurella.
FPL Comment: Interestingly the article says that Arsenal would deploy Zinchenko as a midfielder rather than the left-back he is in Manchester. This central role is the same when playing for Ukraine. If the game relaunches with him as a defender, there could be out-of-position potential.
Telegraph: Maxwel Cornet has interest from West Ham and Everton
With Burnley’s relegation comes a £17.5m release clause for Maxwel Cornet, which interests both West Ham and Everton.
FPL Comment: The Ivorian was probably the Clarets’ best player during their failed survival attempt. Restricted to just 21 starts, the summer signing still found time to bag nine goals and could be interesting at a higher club. Furthermore, he can either play up front or out wide.
Thursday 26th May: Nketiah to stay at Arsenal – Aston Villa want Calvin Bassey alongside Diego Carlos – Oxlade-Chamberlain made available by Liverpool
Wednesday 25th May: Kostic interests Spurs – Sadio Mane to announce Liverpool future – Newcastle want Harrison
Tuesday 24th May: Spurs and Arsenal want Gabriel Jesus – Christian Eriksen is in demand – Renan Lodi interested in Newcastle
Monday 23rd May: Marcos Alonso to Barcelona – Aurelien Tchouameni to Liverpool or Real Madrid – Leeds to buy Brenden Aaronson
