European transfer talk: Featuring Gomez, Tello and Ganso

Cristian Tello

Past and present transfer targets for Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Newcastle United all feature.

Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund have been strongly linked with a move for Barcelona forward Cristian Tello today. The lightning fast Spaniard signed a new deal at the Nou Camp earlier in the season but has since failed to find a way into the first-team. With the signing of Neymar and first-team promotion of Gerard Deulofeu his chances of first-team football have diminished even further. Now it seems a move to the Bundesliga could be on the cards.

Parma transfer chief Pietro Leonardi has made light of rumours linking the Gialloblu with the signing of Inter Milan striker Antonio Cassano. The Italian international is being linked with a summer exit from the San Siro but Leonardi stated:

“Perhaps we’ll now sign Barcelona’s Lionel Messi instead…”

Eric Abidal has reportedly agreed to play in Ligue 1 next season; but the destination is yet to be confirmed. The Frenchman left Barcelona on a free transfer this summer in an emotional press conference. It is reported that his two choices are Lyon and Monaco.

Bruno Alves has left Zenit St Petersburg. The Portuguese international has recently slipped down the pecking order at the Russian outfit and has today concluded a long rumoured €5.5 million deal to Turkish outfit Fenerbahce.

Mario Gomez has reportedly agreed a deal in principle with Fiorentina. The German international is keen to leave Bayern Munich as his first team opportunities have diminished at the club and he is looking for a change of scenery. La Viola see him as the perfect replacement for Stevan Jovetic.

Sao Paulo midfielder Ganso is again being linked with a move to PSG. The Brazilian international only recently signed for his current club but despite assurances from Sao Paulo that they will not be selling him the rumours continue to circulate.

PSG could lose French international enforcer Blaise Matuidi this summer. He is being strongly linked with a move to Napoli in Italian and French press today. Rafa Benitez is said to be keen on snapping up the player for the Italian club.
