English Transfer News
The English Transfer News always has something in the pipeline and has been extremely busy. Especially with the English Premier League teams. Some transfers and be completed in a day. Some transfers take a few weeks which has seemed to be the case with Nigerian strikers Kelechi Iheanacho. The Manchester City striker looks like he’s to move away from the club where he made his name.
At the moment Leicester City look to have won the signature of the Nigerian star. West Ham were interested, but the signing of Javier Hernandez will have ended their interest. Although, popular online betting site bet365 is still taking bets on whether the black stars striker will make the move. Adding Iheanacho to the ranks of Leicester City would make them contenders for the Europa spots after narrowly missing out last season.
On the subject of African stars and Leicester City. Riyad Mahrez looks like he’s stuck. Last season after winning the Sports writers player of the season in the English Premier League. The star did the admirable thing and stayed with the Premier Leagued champions for one more season. Leaving would have bagged Leicester £50m and Riyad Mahrez guaranteed champions league football every season. The likes of Barcelona and Arsenal were interested in the gifted midfielder. He stayed, Leicester didn’t win the champions league, he didn’t hit the same heights as last season and now market value reduced, interest dropped and now Leicester are struggling to receive offers above £25m for the player.
Manchester City’s failure in their attempts to sign Monaco full back Bernard Mendy has lead them to pursue PSG full back Serge Aurier. Monaco have insisted that Mendy is a better player than Kyle Walker so therefore commands a higher fee than the £50m Manchester City paid for Walker. Mendy is 7 years Walkers junior also, adding to the value.
Tottenham are a team that have been very quiet during the transfer window. Daniel Leavy as we all know drives a hard barging. Maybe the sale of Kyle Walker will kick things off for Spurs. They are blessed with talent, but not depth. We saw it last season, when Harry Kane got injured, they struggled to fill his boots. Tottenham are always involved in English Transfer News!
Mohamed Salah making his way to Liverpool could go one way or the other. Salah’s last time in the English Premier League with Chelsea didn’t got to plan. He wasn’t used as much as he would have liked and sometime in the wrong position. He has started his Liverpool career on fire, his first game he scored and created several chances. Possibly it’s going to be second time lucky. Maybe it’s the curse of Chelsea. Kevin De Bruyne didn’t fair too well first time round at Chelsea, but now is one of the stars of the premier league with Manchester City. The start of the Premier League is only weeks away so only time will tell. English Transfer News is always high on everyone’s interest!
