Guardian Rumour Mill

Luke McLaughlin

Arsenal are warming up the Emirates fax machine after making inquiries to Milan about Sandro Tonali, the 22-year-old holding midfielder who helped the Rossoneri win a Scudetto last season. The Milan manager, Stefano Pioli, wants to keep the former Brescia player, sometimes dubbed the “new Pirlo”, but a bid from the Gunners in the region of £50m may make things happen.

Staying with Italian midfielders, Chelsea’s proposed move for Cesare Casadei of Internazionale looks to be in danger of being hijacked by Ligue 1’s Nice. Todd Boehly and co are said to have already had more than one offer rebuffed by Inter – the Nerazzurri reportedly want £20m as well as a buy-back clause – and it now seems the French club are willing to outbid the Blues in yet another transfer setback for Tommy Tuchel.

As reported by Jacob Steinberg yesterday, Borussia Dortmund have thrown their hat in the ring as Callum Hudson-Odoi eyes the Stamford Bridge exit door. The England winger has two years left on his deal at Chelsea but was left out by Tuchel for the opening weekend victory at Everton and is consequently keen to move on to pastures new.

Meanwhile, reports in Spain say that Manchester City and Barcelona have agreed a transfer fee of £46m for the Portugal international midfielder Bernardo Silva. The 28-year-old is widely rumoured to be enthusiastic about the prospect of a switch to the big-spending Catalan club – while Pep Guardiola is being linked with a swoop for Lyon’s Lucas Paquetá. At 24 the Brazilian would set City back somewhere in the region of £70m, and is being talked up as a long-term successor to Kevin De Bruyne.

Up in Liverpool, Jürgen Klopp is preparing to move for Yeremy Pino of Villarreal as he seeks to further spruce up his now Sadio Mané-less attacking options. The right winger has also been touted as a target for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal, mind you, and valuations of anywhere between £40m and £65m are being bandied around. At only 19 years of age, Pino certainly appears to be a good vintage (sorry).

The former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Willian continues to be linked with a move back to London and the Premier League with promoted Fulham. The 34-year-old was shipped out by Arsenal to Corinthians in his native Brazil last year but things have gone far from swimmingly in São Paulo. “I cannot guarantee anything,” the Corinthians manager Vítor Pereira was quoted as saying in regard to Willian’s future. Who can these days?

Erik ten Hag is laughing off claims of his Manchester United reign already being in crisis by sizing up moves for Ismaïla Sarr of Watford and Cody Gakpo of PSV Eindhoven. Sarr, who cost the Hornets somewhere in the region of £30m in 2019, would seem a logical target after dropping down to the Championship. But any move for Gakpo might be stymied should the Dutch club defeat Rangers and progress to the Champions League proper via the playoffs (they edged past Monaco in dramatic fashion in the third qualifying round on Tuesday).

Last night, Fabrizio Romano tweeted that Bologna had anticipated a fresh bid from Manchester United for Marko Arnautovic, but that United have now abandoned the deal entirely in response to the uproar among fans in response to their once-great club targeting the 33-year-old. Nothing like strong leadership and a clear strategy, is there?

Club wary of West Ham in race for defender – Hammers ready to offer ‘quite a few pounds’ to convince him

As you might have heard, West Ham United are interested in Dan-Axel Zagadou.

The Frenchman is currently a free agent after running down his contract at Borussia Dortmund, and despite still only being 23 years of age, he hasn’t found himself a club as of yet.

His injury record might have something to do with that, but there are a number of clubs, including West Ham, who are considering it.

One of those are AS Roma, and Gazzetta dello Sport give us a bit of information on where the former France U21 international stands with his offers.

They explain the Serie A side like Zagadou, ‘but there are concerns about his physical condition’ despite him being free.

Then West Ham come in, as the ‘competition’ from the Hammers is mentioned, as the Premier League club are ‘ready to offer the French defender quite a few pounds’ to convince him to move to London Stadium.

Following the injury to Nayef Aguerd and Issa Diop edging closer to a move to Fulham, it isn’t surprising to see this, but it remains to be seen if David Moyes’ side do end up going all out for Zagadou or simply look elsewhere.


West Ham are willing to listen to offers for Said Benrahma less than two years after his £30m arrival... with David Moyes happy to sell the winger after bolstering his attacking options with the £17.5m signing of Maxwel Cornet

Said Benrahma has struggled for consistency since joining the Hammers in 2020
West Ham will hope to recoup the majority of the £30million they paid for him
The club recently completed the £17.5m signing of Maxwel Cornet from Burnley

By Simon Jones

West Ham manager David Moyes is willing to listen to offers for Algerian winger Said Benrahma.

The 26-year-old joined the Hammers on an initial loan from Brentford before being signed permanently for £30million, but has lacked the consistency that Moyes craves.

West Ham have bolstered their attacking positions this summer, with the £32m signing of striker Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo and the £17.5m addition of Maxwel Cornet from Burnley.

After a slow first season, the winger made an encouraging start to the last campaign before falling away once more after Christmas.

Benrahma scored 11 goals in all competitions during the 2021/22 season, but came off the bench in their 2-0 opening day defeat to Manchester City this campaign.

The Hammers will be hoping to recoup the £30m they forked out for him rather than sell him on the cheap.

Meanwhile, the Hammers also look set to lose winger Nikola Vlasic, who arrived in Turin on Tuesday night ahead of joining Torino on a season-long loan.

The attacking midfielder has struggled to settle since joining from CSKA Moscow for £25.7m last summer.

The loan can be made permanent for £12.9m.

West Ham have also put in a bid for PSG defender Thilo Kehrer, but Moyes is juggling options with Manchester United's Eric Bailly among them.

West Ham United now fancy signing ‘incredible’ Bayern Munich talent

Olly Dawes

West Ham United want Tanguy Nianzou and are considering a move to sign the Bayern Munich defender as a replacement for Issa Diop.

The focus at West Ham now appears to be concentrated on signing a new defender.

Issa Diop is leaving West Ham for a move to Fulham this week, just as the Hammers endure something of a defensive injury crisis.

Nayef Aguerd, Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are all out at the moment and West Ham need another option at the back.

Paris Saint-Germain duo Abdou Diallo and Thilo Kehrer are two names on the radar, but the Hammers could now look now look towards Bayern Munich for help.

90Min now report that West Ham have an interest in signing Bayern Munich defender Tanguy Nianzou.

It’s suggested that West Ham could focus on signing Nianzou if they can’t secure a deal for PSG defender Kehrer.

Nianzou, 20, came up through the PSG ranks but chose to leave the club at the end of his contract in 2020.

Two goals in six league games for PSG was an impressive record for the young defender and Bayern swooped in with a deal.

The problem for Nianzou is that first-team minutes at Bayern aren’t easy to come by; he started just six Bundesliga games last season.

Nianzou did make 11 substitute appearances but leaving PSG to further his career with Bayern hasn’t really worked.

Nianzou was considered to be an ‘incredible’ prospect at PSG but will find himself behind the likes of Benjamin Pavard and Dayot Upamecano, as well as new signings Noussair Mazraoui and Matthijs de Ligt.

Capable of playing at centre back or right back, Nianzou could tick similar boxes to Kerher in the eyes of West Ham decision-makers.

A loan with option to buy may be the best way for West Ham to secure Nianzou, and he is a name to keep a close eye on in David Moyes’ chase of a new defender.

Yes looks to be going well for Ngakia that he refused a new West Ham contract and further development in the academy when on the point of breaking into the 1st team after a few starts and Moyes apparently asking him to stay.
