Transfer Rater: Theo Walcott to Everton, Javier Pastore 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.
Theo Walcott to Everton
The English forward could look to leave the Emirates next summer after struggling to secure a first team spot at the club this season. Arsene Wenger will look to rejig his squad in January with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil also potentially leaving the club next year. According to the Daily Star, Walcott's availability has alerted Everton, who are looking for some experience and pace on the flanks to support youngsters Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Ademola Lookman.
Adrien Rabiot to Liverpool
The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has revealed he would like to experience another European league and claimed Liverpool could be a preferred destination. He said: "I would love to play in the Premier League, not necessarily one club in particular, even though I was very fond of Liverpool when I was young."
Javier Pastore to Chelsea
Another PSG midfielder who could be on the move is 28-year-old Pastore. After a massive summer outlay that included £198 million Neymar, the Ligue 1 giants need to balance the books and Chelsea have been alerted by a possible £26m fee. Spanish outlet El Gol Digital have reported that Antonio Conte's side are likely to be interested, along with Liverpool and Inter Milan.
Leigh Griffiths to Brighton
Scotland assistant manager Mark McGhee says striker Griffiths is good enough for the Premier League. The former Wolves striker has been in good form for Celtic this season, and this hasn't gone unnoticed by clubs south of the border. McGhee only added fuel to rumours linking him with a move to England's top tier. He said: "I watch these games all the time. Last week I was at Brighton against Newcastle, and Leigh could have played in either of those teams. Absolutely no danger."
Robin van Persie to Feyenoord
The Dutch striker is set to return to his first club after Fenerbahce indicated they will not extend his deal. The Turkish side are looking to terminate his contract early in order to bring in new faces, and a move back home to the Netherlands looks like it will happen sooner rather than later, according to Turkish outlet Aksam.
