Today has coughed up a few more rumours to temporarily satisfy our respective footballing fixes. For another day, at least.
Money goes in, money goes out. That’s the general gist of how transfers work. You know how it works, you know the craic. Just drink it in.
Ryan Sessegnon Seeking Home Comforts Ahead of Likely Summer Move
?Tottenham have been put on red alert after Ryan Sessegnon signalled an apparent desire to stay close to his mum and remain in London when he (almost certainly) leaves Fulham at the end of the season.
The Cottagers are down and the likelihood of them keeping hold of their talented 18-year-old grows bleaker by the day. News of his plans only adds further fuel to an already exceedingly hot fire with Spurs being long-term admirers of the winger even during his Championship days. Now, the ?Standard are claiming a £25m deal should be enough to prise him away from his only club to date.
It isn’t just the Champions League semi finalists interested, however. Oh no.
Southampton After Birmingham Frontman Che Adams
Secure your ?Premier League status after a superb turnaround from the new boss since taking over. What do you do? Sign a Championship player.
?The ?Daily Mail claim that is supposedly what Ralph Hasenhuttl is looking to do with the ?Saints willing to part with a fee in the region of £15m for Birmingham’s on-fire forward. Adams has had his best season to date with 22 goals in the second tier, in a Blues’ side that has struggled somewhat this term, points deduction aside. While Shane Long has seemingly finally remembered what a goal is having found the back of the net all of the sudden, the Austrian manager is still keen to add reinforcements.
Probably because he reminded himself that Long ended a 279 day goal drought in January, which came after previous wait of 325 days. Yeah, you can’t blame him for fancying a new striker.
Steven Gerrard Targeting Andre Gray Loan Ahead of Next Season
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is once again hoping to lure a forward from south of the border to his Ibrox revolution, only this time aimed for someone (a tad) younger than Jermain Defoe.
Having found first team opportunities hard to come by with ?Watford this season, Gerrard is considering a loan approach for 27-year-old Andre Gray this coming summer. Gerard Deulofeu and Troy Deeney have been the leading men up front for Javi Gracia, leaving £18m signing Gray to warm the bench for much of the campaign. Nonetheless, he’s netted in his last two outings for the club and is a regular feature as a substitute for the Hornets, thus leaving the former Liverpool man eager to pounce, according to ?Herald Scotland.

Danilo Says ‘Yes’ to Inter Although City Put Brakes on Move
“Let me go, please let me go!”
Probably the conversation ongoing between Danilo, his representatives and Manchester City will sound something like that. The Brazilian just 18 appearances across all competitions this season and news of a potential exit has been surfacing for some time. As claimed yesterday by ?Gianluca Di Marzio, ?Inter looked the likely exit route, with further movement suggesting the player has indeed said ‘yes’ to the deal, at a reduced salary.
However, the Sky Sport Italia journalist claims (via ?Football Italia) Danilo’s ‘dream’ is being put on hold with City eager to see if any better bids come in before the end of the season. Hold your horses kids, this could rumble on!
