Transfer Rater: Mohamed Elneny to Galatasaray, Wilfried Bony to Swansea
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 for the summer. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Mohamed Elneny to Galatasaray
He may only have joined the club in January 2016 but Elneny could be on his way out of Arsenal this summer. The Egyptian international struggled to nail down a place in the centre of midfield last term and started just 12 games in all competitions. Reports in Turkey suggest Galatasaray have been in talks with the Gunners regarding a potential deal. After finishing fifth in the Premier League a clear-out at the Emirates, making way for a new group of players, was imperative and it seems Elneny could be among those out the exit door.
Wilfried Bony to Swansea
In the two years since Bony left Swansea he has played just 57 times for Manchester City and Stoke, scoring just 13 goals. He has failed to rediscover the devastating form which saw him score 35 in 70 games for the Swans, but he could be ready to make his return to South Wales. A deal could hinge on the future of Fernando Llorente, with the Spaniard keen to link up with his former Juventus coach Antonio Conte at Chelsea.
Demarai Gray to Bournemouth
Earlier in the window, Leicester City's England Under-21 international Gray was keen to seek assurances regarding his playing time going into the new campaign. The Birmingham-born forward helped his country reach the semifinals of the Under-21 European Championships and has been frustrated at starting just nine league games for Leicester City last term. Bournemouth have emerged as the favourites for his signature should Craig Shakespeare fail to convince the youngster to stay.
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson to Ajax
Crystal Palace have finally completed a deal to sign Ajax defender Jairo Riedewald and now the Dutch club could be looking to Manchester United for his replacement. After a disappointing spell on loan at Wolves last term, Borthwick-Jackson can leave Old Trafford and with the Amsterdam club searching for a left-sided defender, a deal is possible.
Peter Gulacsi to Newcastle United
After making a couple of signings recently, Rafa Benitez isn't finished just yet with RB Leipzig goalkeeper Gulacsi next on his list, according to ESPN FC sources. The Hungarian was key as the newly promoted side finished Bundesliga runners-up last term. Leipzig are standing tough when it comes to selling their players this summer, so it could be another long battle for Benitez to get his man.
