Our friends at Football Whispers have rounded up all the latest transfer rumours from across the continent.

With the European football season coming to an end, clubs are beginning to ratchet up their summer transfer plans.

We round-up the best from the press across Europe...


Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny and Chelsea's Kurt Zouma are among Marseille's transfer targets as they aim to improve their defence. The Premier League duo are on a shortlist that also includes Fenerbahce's Simon Kjaer and Sevilla's Adil Rami. (L'Equipe)

Ex-Porto transfer chief Antero Henrique is set to become Paris Saint-Germain's new sporting director, and wants his first signing to be Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri. The 25-year-old Ivorian was instrumental to his club's surprise title challenge in 2016/17 and has a starting price of €40 million. (L'Equipe)


Barcelona are seeking to bring in a quality, hard-working midfielder, and Manchester United's Ander Herrera has emerged as a genuine target. The Spaniard has been a key player for the Premier League side this season, but is about to enter the last year of his contract. And a move to the Camp Nou would make even more sense if the Catalan giants appoint Ernesto Valverde as their next manager - Herrera played for Valverde while at Athletic Bilbao. (Sport)
