MATCH takes a look at the hottest gossip flying around the footy world!



Even though they won the Premier League with ease, Man. City chiefs are looking to rebuild this summer! One player who could be a casualty is attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva, with top-four teams in Spain, France and Italy apparently waiting for the green light to bid. Apparently the 26-year-old would rather move abroad than to another Prem club!


Burnley striker Chris Wood is a player in-demand! After scoring 12 Premier League goals last season, the New Zealand net-buster is apparently wanted by up to 12 Prem clubs. The Clarets wouldn’t let him go for under £30 million, so there could end up being a bidding war for his services!


Ligue 1 champs Lille expected there to be loads of interest in their players after a jaw-dropping season! One of their stars, right-back Zeki Celik, has attracted attention from Arsenal, Tottenham and Man. United. Apparently he could cost them around £13 million. Spurs could be the most in need of a new right-back with Serge Aurier potentially leaving!

Junior Firpo dribbles


Barcelona’s 24-year-old full-back Junior Firpo has struggled to establish himself at the Nou Camp! The La Liga giants are ready to let him go, which has sparked interest from Prem sides West Ham and Southampton. According to the gossip, it could take a bid of £13m for the Catalans to accept. Not too pricey!

Mbappe holds trophy


Some Spanish spies are suggesting Real Madrid new gaffer Carlo Ancelotti could receive a present this summer – Kylian Mbappe – which could spark a transfer Merry-Go-Round! If the France star leaves PSG, the Ligue 1 club will go after Cristiano Juventus, with Maurco Icardi heading the other way!
