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


RB Leipzig managed to keep hold of Dayot Upamecano in January, but we doubt he’ll still be there at the start of next season! We’ve heard that Liverpool and Chelsea are both interested in signing him in the summer. We’d love to see him in the Premier League!


One player who’s still looking for a new club is free agent Diego Costa! He was linked with a move back to the Premier League to join Man. City, but gossips say that The Citizens were not interested in signing the 32-year-old striker. Gutted!


However, Man. City are understood to be interesting in signing Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi! The 22-year-old defender has been tearing it up in Serie A, and has already been valued at £35 million! They won’t be the only club trying to sign him in the summer though…



Aston Villa have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League, and a key reason behind that is the form of Ross Barkley! However, he’s currently only on loan at Villa Park from Chelsea, and gossips reckon that the two clubs are still yet to hold talks regarding a permanent deal!


Diego Costa wasn’t the only ex-Premier League striker linked with a return to England in January! Ex-Man. City hero Edin Dzeko was rumoured to be a target for Man. United, although reports since suggest that The Red Devils were never interested in him!
