Summer transfer rumours: the 10 big moves to watch

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The latest rumours, whispers and will-they-won't-theys from Premier League Land and beyond

Philippe Coutinho

Current club: Liverpool • Could join: Barcelona

The saga rumbles on. Liverpool remain adamant that Coutinho is going nowhere, while Barcelona continue to brief that they are close to landing the Brazil international. 

The former Inter man is keen to move on and yet to appear for the Reds this season. Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that Liverpool aren't a selling club, but their resolve could be tested in the next few days if the Catalana - recently humbled by Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup, and reeling from Neymar's exit - submit an official offer.

Kylian Mbappe

Current club: Monaco • Could join: PSG, Real Madrid, Manchester City

The teenage sensation will play no part for Monaco this weekend, having been left out of Leonardo Jardim's matchday squad for Friday's trip to Metz. 

That has inevitably fuelled speculation that a transfer is imminent. Big-spending PSG have long been in a race which also features Real Madrid and Manchester City, who have both been linked with Mbappe throughout the summer. French champions Monaco may dig their heels in, but a huge bid from the capital could force their hand. Ultimately it's a matter of when, not if he'll go at some point down the line anyway. 

Jonny Evans

Current club: West Brom • Could join: Manchester City

A few eyebrows were raised when Evans emerged as a Manchester City target earlier this week, but the deal would make sense for Pep Guardiola as he seeks to bolster his defence ahead of a pivotal season. West Brom rejected an £18m offer from City on Wednesday, while Leicester previously had a £10m bid turned down. 

"Jonny Evans is staying with West Bromwich Albion... there is no doubt about that," Tony Pulis said last month. The Welshman will know that things can change quickly in football, though.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Current club: Arsenal • Could join: Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United

Oxlade-Chamberlain's contract situation has been overshadowed by Alexis Sanchez's this summer, but the England international's deal also expires next June. While Arsene Wenger may "want him to stay for a long time", as he said on Wednesday, the player himself has done little to play down the chances of a switch.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are all reportedly interested in the 24-year-old, whose versatility would no doubt prove useful to Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp or Jose Mourinho.

Danny Drinkwater

Current club: Leicester • Could join: Chelsea

Leicester continue to play hardball with Roma over Riyad Mahrez, and look to be adopting the same approach with Drinkwater's proposed switch to Chelsea. 

With Antonio Conte in desperate need of more bodies as his side prepares to do battle on multiple fronts, the reigning Premier League champions may yet meet their predecessors' £40m asking price.
