Tottenham’s first summer signing could well be Inter Milan winger Antonio Candreva but they will face competition from Chelsea to secure the deal.
Candreva has spent his whole career in Italy, with Inter being the latest team he’s turned out for after a
Leicester are set to make a second attempt to sign Sporting midfielder Adrien Silva with a €22m offer.
According to Jornal de Notícias (via Sport Witness) the Foxes will face competition from Internazionale and West Brom.
The Baggies are reportedly very keen on the 28-year-old, although Inter are considered favourites to secure his signature.
Neither of the offers are likely to be enough to meet Sporting’s demands, however, with reports claiming that the Portuguese club are demanding at least €30m.
Inter are expected to raise their offer to meet that estimation, but will face continued competition from the two Premier League sides.
Last summer Leicester made a €30m bid for Silva, which was rebuffed because it did not meet Sporting’s then valuation of €45m. Sporting have clearly now lowered their demands for the player, hence the reportedly imminent offer of €22m from Leicester.
Reports in Portugal have also claimed that West Brom have seen a €26m offer rejected, which could leave Leicester with little prospect of their bid proving successful.
The Leicester Mercury, meanwhile, claim that reports of interest in Silva could be wide of the mark due to the Foxes numerous midfield options, including the recent signing of S
Internazionale look set to offer €50m for Bayern Munich’s midfield enforcer Arturo Vidal as Inter’s ambitious Chinese owners target league titles and Champions League football, according to reports in Italy.
Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has reportedly stressed to Nerazzurri’s wealthy Chinese owners Suning that the San Siro club need to bring in a world class midfielder in order to challenge for the Champions League spots, and tackle Juventus’ dominance in Serie A.
According to a Calciomercato report, with bitter rivals AC Milan having already spent over £160m overhauling their squad this summer, Inter’s owners are anxious to prove that Le Beamatta can attract top signings with a move for Vidal.
The former Colo-Colo star has won back to back titles with Bayern Munich since his arrival in 2015, and his dynamic performances have prompted overtures from a number of Europe’s top clubs, including Chelsea and Manchester United.
However, Bayern are reportedly reluctant to sell the combative former Juventus midfielder, with Thiago Alcantara’s long term injury problems and Xabi Alonso’s retirement leaving Die Bayern short of midfield options, should he leave.
Addressing rumours that the 30-year-old could leave the Allianz Arena this summer, Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti said;
“For Vidal, there is no way. He’s our player and I have a lot of confidence in him.
“I know there are rumours and we’re used to rumours. He’ll stay with us 100 per cent – I’m confident about that.”
For a few weeks now, Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic has been touted for a move to Manchester United, although talks have supposedly stalled as the two parties can not agree upon a suitable figure for the winger.
Inter’s boss Luciano Spalletti has no real intention of selling the Croatian international, however the former AS Roma manager – speaking at a media conference, via Four Four Two – claims that the 28-year-old could head for pastures new if an offer comes in to which the Serie A outfit are ‘satisfied’ with, a statement which could ready Jose Mourinho for one last substantial bid for his signature.
“He is a fantastic player and if his future is totally up to me, I will definitely keep him,” he claimed.
“However, if an offer comes and the club are satisfied with the money, which will be used to invest in and strengthen the team, he could leave.”
Competing with fierce city rivals AC Milan next term is sure to be top of the
Inter Milan have agreed terms with 19-year-old Caen winger Yann Karamoh and are now negotiating a deal with the French Ligue 1 team, according to Premium Sport. The deal is expected to be worth €10m.
Karamoh has a year left on his contract with Caen, who have previously rejected bids of €3m and €6m for the starlet from the Italian club.
Last season, Karamoh scored five goals and completed four assists as he played a crucial role in maintaining Caen’s Ligue 1 status as they successfully fought against relegation. He also played twice within France’s under-21 squad as he progressed from the under-19s.
He had previously been rumoured to be the subject of a bidding war between West Ham and Red Bull Leipzig. West Ham manager Slaven Bilic had been impressed with his attacking versatility, with his ability to play on both the left and right wings and also as centre forward.
Southampton and Newcastle United are both also interested in buying Karamoh’s services, with the Saints looking to be Inter’s main rivals for the player
In a recent interview with Goal he outlined what he was looking for in a potential new club.
He said: “If I had the choice, I would go to a club where I would play… I want to go to a club where I could continue to evolve to mature in two or three years”.
Inter Milan’s already strong attack, featuring Stevan Jovetic and Mauro Icardi, could limit his first team opportunities should the transfer be completed.
Chelsea’s recruitment process still looks to be taking shape, and it’s emerged – due to a report published by Gianluca Di Marzio – that the Blues have supposedly taken the lead in the race to land Fluminese’s prodigal winger Richarlison.
Richarlison, 20, has been a target of Serie A clubs including Inter Milan, AC Milan and Sampdoria, but was allegedly expected to join Eredivisie giants Ajax in a move worth £12m after initially agreeing to a five-year contract at the Amsterdam Arena, according to Daily Mail
The Brazilian, in the midst of Ajax’s interest, has indeed made contact with Italian outfits Inter and Sampdoria, who are also closely tailing his services.
Although now it appears that the Premier League champions are in-fact in the driver’s seat for his sought-after signature, with the prospect of linking-up at Stamford Bridge proving to be all too tempting for the young winger.
The attacker is highly adaptable and is able to deputise on either wing as well as at the spearhead of the attack in the number nine role.
Milan and Manchester United were also touted as viable destinations for the Brazil U20 international, however Richarlison’s agent
“Yes, there is interest from a few clubs in your country.” Velasco said to FCInterNews.it last week.
“Inter and Sampdoria, yes, but not the Rossoneri, at least not right now.
“The truth is that he is ready to play for any club, big or small and there is a lot of speculation around him.
“He is talking about Italy, but also England and Holland.”
Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has put pressure on his talented young
Speaking to the press following his side’s 1-1 pre-season match against Bundesliga side Schalke, via Football Italia, Spalletti faced questions regarding his take on the warm-up match, as well as the specific matter of Gabigol’s performance. When quizzed on the 20-year-old’s input to the game, Spalletti stated: “
Assessing the general performance of the side, Spalletti seemed to be pleased with the promise his recently inherited side were showing, while acknowledging the desire for collective improvement:
Spalletti is yet to delve into the summer transfer market with the vigour shown by arch-rivals AC Milan, but has invested in the likes of Milan Skriniar from Sampdoria and Facundo Colidio from Boca Juniors. Gabigol could well end up spending the 2016/17 campaign on loan, but the player may relish his opportunity to impress his new manager during pre-season training and matches.
Manchester United are yet to meet Ivan Perisic’s valuation, according to Inter’s technical director Walter Sabatini.
Jose Mourinho’s men have been heavily linked with a move for Perisic all summer, with the Portuguese manager keen to add his versatile attacking style to his squad.
United have already brought in Victor Lindelof from Benfica and Romelu Lukaku from Everton, spending over £100m on the pair. The Red Devils are believed to have already tabled a £44m bid for the 28-year-old, but the deal has hit a snag as Perisic joined his teammates for their pre-season tour of China.
And talking to Sky Sports Italia, Inter’s technical director Sabatini has insisted that no club is yet to meet their valuation of the player.
He said: “You all know what we want, but the offer has not yet arrived.”
Despite United tying up important deals for Lukaku and Lindelof, Mourinho is believed to be growing frustrated with the quantity of deals being completed at Old Trafford.
The Manchester Evening News are reporting that Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward has not joined the club on their USA tour in order to tie up two more transfer targets – believed to be two of Perisic, Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic and Tottenham’s Eric Dier.

“Almost all of the names which have come out are true,” brother and agent Evans Kondogbia said. “Geoffrey is a great player and it’s normal that there are so many teams after him. Offers are never lacking, and they’re still there.
“I can rule out Valencia, there’s nothing with them. I’ll repeat though, so many of the clubs who have been linked with Geoffrey are real, so even PSG and Barça have called us, but nothing more.
“It was just to talk, ‘how is the lad?’.
“The chances of him staying? I’d say high, but it’s not just down to us, it also depends on the will of the club. It works like love, like with your partner, you’ll be together if you share it. If Inter want him, we can continue without problems.”
Kondogbia started 20 Serie A games for Inter last season, scoring one goal and providing two assists from midfield.
