Walker inching towards a Bayern switch

While Kyle Walker might have received a string of plaudits as Manchester City were crowned treble champions earlier in the month, it appears that the England international could be heading for the Etihad exit this summer.

Although the ex-Tottenham defender might be attracting interest from the likes of boyhood club Sheffield United and Saudi Arabia, Sky Sports are reporting that it is Bayern Munich who find themselves sat in pole position to snap up the 33-year-old.

Left on the bench for City’s famous Champions League final against Inter Milan on June 10th, it has been suggested that Walker himself is open to a first adventure outside of England.

Reportedly growing frustrated at a lack of first-team minutes since returning from the World Cup’s winter break, the five-time Premier League winner now finds himself priced as low as 4/11 with Olympusbet to complete a move to the German heavyweights this summer.

Gallagher on his way to the south coast

With Chelsea still working behind the scenes in order to complete what could be a record-breaking deal for Moises Caicedo, many are expecting what could be a major squad overhaul at Stamford Bridge this summer.

With Mateo Kovacic inching closer towards a move to Manchester City and Mason Mount looking like he is heading to Old Trafford, it has been heavily suggested that Conor Gallagher is another midfield star who is on his way out of the west London exit.

Knowing that they must slash their bumper wage bill this summer, The Observer are reporting that the Chelsea hierarchy have made it clear to Brighton that they are willing to offer Gallagher as a potential makeweight in their efforts to sign Caicedo.

Despite failing to fully cement his spot as a first-team regular under either Graham Potter or Frank Lampard last season, Gallagher currently finds himself priced at 4/1 with Luckster to complete a move to the high-flying Seagulls this summer.

Pickford tipped to be De Gea’s replacement

With David de Gea still not putting pen to paper on a contract extension at Old Trafford, the 32-year-old shot-stopper is now without an active deal in Manchester and reports have started to suggest that the Spanish keeper will be ending his 12-year stay.

Although Erik ten Hag might have made it clear that he wants the one-time Atletico Madrid starlet to extend his decade-long stay in the red half of Manchester, The Sunday Star are suggesting that United have already lined up their perfect De Gea replacement.

While Everton might have come under a huge amount of scrutiny last season as they only just clung to their Premier League status on the final weekend, Jordan Pickford was undoubtedly the Toffees’ saving grace in 2023.

Although England’s number one might have only signed a new deal at Goodison Park back in February, United are reportedly weighing up a £45million move and Pickford himself is priced at 5/2 with 1xBet to complete a stunning move to Old Trafford this summer.

Moyes desperate to complete Barnes swoop

With it appearing inevitable that Declan Rice will be on his way out of the London Stadium in a deal that could be worth over £100million, West Ham have made it clear that they will be reinvesting that money in their squad this summer.

Making real history earlier in the month as they were crowned Europa Conference League champions following a 2-1 victory against Italian giants Fiorentina in Prague, David Moyes has reportedly already drawn up his summer wishlist.

Looking to add attacking reinforcements during the transfer window, GiveMeSport are suggesting that Leicester’s Harvey Barnes is Moyes’ number one target this summer.

Notching 12 goals last season for a Leicester squad that lost their Premier League status in an infamous fashion, the Hammers currently find themselves priced at 2/1 with Vegas Land to snap up the 24-year-old’s signature ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

Joselu secures a famous move Los Blancos

Continuing on what has been a stunning run of form since making his international debut for Spain earlier in the year, Joselu has certainly embarked on a real fairytale story over the past few months.

While Espanyol might have lost their La Liga status last season and endured a nightmare campaign among Spain’s elite, the one-time Newcastle and Stoke misfit notched 16 top-flight strikes and only finished behind Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski in the race for the Golden Boot.

With the 33-year-old arriving in the Spanish capital on an initial loan until June 2024, it has been suggested that Espanyol will receive a loan fee of €500,000 and Joselu has accepted a reduced salary in order to complete his shocking move to the Bernabeu.

However, despite Joselu’s arrival on a 12-month deal, Los Blancos have made it clear that they are still seeking a new heavyweight number nine to come in and replace the departing Benzema.
