Transfer Rater: Juventus' new era to land Kylian Mbappe; Krzysztof Piatek to Chelsea
Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the Whisper.
Here are today's top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Paul Pogba to Paris Saint-Germain
Paul Pogba is desperate to leave Manchester United after clashing with Jose Mourinho and could be the subject of a huge offer from PSG. According to The Sun he would be willing to stay in England if a new coach was appointed, but PSG are confident of making a lucrative offer in the coming windows. Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, is close to the Parisian club and would have little problem facilitating the move.
Rabiot to Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur are set to join the race for the signature of PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot in January, according to the Mirror. The highly-rated 23-year-old has reportedly rejected a number of contract offers from the French champions and will therefore be allowed to speak to non-French clubs in January, when his current deal enters its final six months. However, Mauricio Pochettino will have to fend off interest from fellow Premier League giants Liverpool as well as Spanish champions Barcelona.
Nicolo Barella to Inter Milan
Liverpool and Tottenham have been dealt a blow in their hopes of signing Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella, as the young midfielder would prefer to stay in Serie A if he were to move clubs. According to a report from Calciomercato, the 21-year-old is a transfer target for both Milan sides, but it now seems as though circumstances favour Inter's approach for the young Italian star and they could make a deal around £30-£35 million.
Krzysztof Piatek to Chelsea
Chelsea have acted quickly to put themselves at the top of the pecking order when it comes to signing Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek, as they hope to beat Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham to the 23-year-old goal scorer. Piatek has already scored 12 goals in seven games for the Serie A side, alerting Europe's top clubs to his obvious talents, however Gazzetta dello Sport believe that the London club have already laid the groundwork for a transfer in the January transfer window.
Kylian Mbappe to Juventus
Juventus reportedly hope to build upon the capture of Cristiano Ronaldo with another superstar signing next summer -- albeit one a little younger. According to Tuttosport, the departure of general manager Giuseppe Marotta could usher in a new era in which an ambitious bid for PSG striker Kylian Mbappe is made. Juve are also keen on bringing Paul Pogba back to Turin from Manchester United.
