With the summer transfer market distant away, the Rumour Mill can’t help itself but link several players to the affluent consortias of the Premier league and other leagues in Europe. While some signings do look imminent like that of Nemanja Vidic already confirmed to Italian Giants Inter Milan, there are still a lot of deals which at first seem inevitable however later fail to materialize. Here at Sportzwiki we start a new series of the Premier League Transfer analysis and try to provide a near accurate details of their chances at swapping colours in the summer.
Bacary Sagna to Inter Milan: It is believed that the President of the Italian side Inter Milan, Erick Thohir has shown interest to sign Arsenal’s right back Bacary Sagna in the summer. Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Thohir said, “I’m not used to making announcements if there is not a signed contract.I can only say that we like Sagna and that at this point it all depends on him. If he does not arrive, we will take a younger right-back.”
The 31 year old is out of contract in the summer and Wenger unwilling to pay heed to his demands, Sagna might leave in a move away from Arsenal. With Carl Jenkinson relatively inexperienced, Wenger can look to securing a right back first for his squad, someone like Dortmund’s Polish International Lukasz Pizsceck if at all the French International leaves the Emirates.
Joe Hart to Real Madrid: According to the BBC, Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has emerged as a £25m target for Spanish giants Real Madrid who want the 26-year-old as a successor for the long-serving, but out-of-favour, Iker Casillas. Hart who is the number one choice for England has had a temporary loss of form for the Citizens being eventually replaced by Costel Pantilimon before regaining his place in the starting eleven. Real Madrid are in search of a goalkeeper after it seems as if Spanish Legend might hang up his boots after the World Cup having been relegated to the bench by an in form Digeo Lopez at the Bernebeu.
Edin Dzeko to Inter Milan: Yet another player linked to Inter in Mnachester City striker Edin Dzeko who is apparently third choice for Manuel Pellegrini. The Bosnian will lead his country in the World Cup and after failing to grab a regular spot in the Citizens squad, City might have to sell the “super sub”. Inter Milan look to be on the top of the list for the potential suitors for Dzeko but Borussia Dortmund want him too to replace Robert Lewandowski who is on his way to Bayern Munich.
Elsewhere, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has spoken about his admiration for on loan Chelsea striker Romeu Lukaku currently at Everton. Pardew has admitted that Newcastle would be keen on landing the 20 year old Belgian. “I think he is a player a lot of clubs will be looking at in the summer. I don’t think Everton will get a free run at him,” said Pardew. I think he is a player a lot of clubs will be looking at in the summer. I don’t think Everton will get a free run at him”
