With the amount of rumours swirling around at this time of year, even after the summer transfer window, it is sometimes difficult to decipher the truth.
These are matters of importance.
With all the transfer talk now directed at the January winter market, there are still enormous amounts of speculation swirling around Europe and the UK.
Not to worry however, because here at Tribalfootball, we have broken down the week’s hottest transfer rumours, and inform you whether you should believe the paper talk or not.
Elye Wahi – Caen
14-year-old Elye Wahi has been dubbed the new Kylian Mbappe.
The Caen striker has recently been added to the club’s U17 team after scoring 89 goals last season.
Dubbed a ‘phenomenon’ by his former coach, the French teenager has drawn comparisons with the PSG superstar.
And it has clubs salivating at the prospect of developing his potential.
There isn’t any footage of the youngster, so it is hard to get a gauge on how valid the hype really is.
Likelihood: Keep an eye out
Pietro Pellegri – Genoa
Pietro Pellegri is another starlet garnering attention.
Fortunately, we know a lot more about the Genoa teenager than Wahi.
The whizkid has started for Ivan Juric’s side ever since. And it would be in Genoa‘s best interest to do so because the biggest clubs in the world will be watching every step Pellegri takes.
In saying that, the Blues don’t have the best record of bringing through young players and if Pellegri has desire to continue playing first-team football, then Chelsea is not the club for him.
Likelihood: Not now
Mesut Ozil – Arsenal
Clubs interested: Manchester United
The Germany international is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season and will have the option to sign with whoever he pleases.
Ozil’s advisors have put the word out to United and the feedback has been positive.
He will be 29 when his contract runs out and if United are keen, Ozil will definitely take the option.
Likelihood: Looks good
The diminutive attacker has become arguably Juventus‘ most important player over the past season.
Dybala has scored 10 goals in six Serie A matches already!
His enormous talent, and the fact that he is only 23, has teams ready to break the bank to sign him.
The Mirror reports that United are readying a bid of £155m for the Argentine.
Expect both of these clubs to go head to head and the transfer fee to be reaching Neymar heights.
Likelihood: Could happen
Charly Musonda – Chelsea
Chelsea are desperate to extend Charly Musonda’s contract.
The 20-year-old has a contract until 2019, but he is said to be keeping an eye on his playing time this term under Antonio Conte.
However, if his playing time dwindles before January, expect Musonda’s agent to sound out clubs for a move.
