Transfer Talk LIVE: Milan could move for Rashford

Transfer Talk

Transfer Rater: Icardi to Madrid, Godin to Milan

Football Whispers

Gabriel Jesus wanted by Barcelona, Man City; N'Golo Kante to Madrid?

Gabriel Jesus Palmeiras
Gabriel Jesus helped Palmeiras to a Copa do Brasil title last season.

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest gossip. See the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: City, Barca in fight for Brazilian star

It appears battle lines have been drawn for a player considered by some in Brazil to have the potential to be the new Neymar.

In one corner, Barcelona. In the other, former Barca boss Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. The player? Gabriel Jesus.

Let's start with City: The Sun reports that Guardiola has offered £16.7 million for the Palmeiras forward.

It adds that the 19-year-old has two release clauses in his contract, with one allowing City, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain or Real Madrid to sign him for that amount.

The other, applicable to any other club caring to bid, is for £27.8m.

With Gabriel Jesus having attracted the attention of "a host of European giants," City "have made the first real move," the Sun says.

But hang on -- Barcelona have also made an offer and have started talks with Palmeiras, Spanish outlet Sport says.

Negotiations, according to its report, "could progress over the coming days," with Barcelona scouts believing a move for the teenager would be "a safe bet."

Palmeiras are reportedly resigned to the fact that they will lose Jesus this summer -- and it appears only to be a question of to which club.

Kante bound for the Bernabeu?

Jamie Vardy may appear increasingly likely to stay at Leicester -- but the same can't be said of teammate N'Golo Kante, according to AS.

It says the sought-after France international midfielder, linked with a string of clubs after his outstanding performances in the Foxes' title win, "has been offered to Real Madrid."

Kante, who has a £20m release clause in his contract, has been compared to Claude Makelele by Real coach Zinedine Zidane.

AS adds that, were he to end up at the Bernabeu, that "would not prevent Real from also going after Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba."

That, it says, is because "the two players are familiar with each other and compatible on the pitch."

Giaccherini targets Stamford Bridge switch

Emanuele Giaccherini wants to join his current Italy international manager Antonio Conte at Chelsea next season, according to the Sun.

The paper quotes the attacking midfielder's agent as saying his client has "set his heart" on a "dream" move to London.

Giaccherini and Conte worked together at Juventus and the player is starring for Italy at Euro 2016, where he scored in the 2-0 victory over Belgium.

The 31-year-old Giaccherini spent last season on loan at Bologna from Sunderland and, the Sun says, could be available for "a cut-price fee."

Gunners still keen on Kokorin

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger kept tabs on forward Aleksandr Kokorin, a loan target for the Gunners last summer, during Russia's Euro 2016 defeat to Slovakia, Russian outlet Sport Express reports.

But Wenger wouldn't have been too impressed with what he saw -- the player was substituted after an ineffective display as his team struggled to create chances for much of the game.

Kokorin, who joined Zenit St Petersburg from Dinamo Moscow in January, was in Wenger's sights this time last year, his then-Dinamo coach Andrey Kobelev revealed -- and it seems that interest has not gone away.

Toffees in frame for United midfielder

Managerial changes at Manchester United and Everton could result in a United midfielder making his way to Goodison Park -- but not Everton old boy Marouane Fellaini.

The Sun reports that Morgan Schneiderlin is the man in question and could link up again with Ronald Koeman, who once managed him at Southampton.

France international Schneiderlin, who has struggled to make an impact since moving to Old Trafford, could find himself surplus to requirements in Jose Mourinho's brave new United world.

That, says the report, "will alert Koeman, who seems intent on strengthening his new engine room."

Striking developments at Swansea

It's going to be all about strikers at Swansea in the summer -- and they could come from Liverpool and West Ham.

The Sun reveals that the Swans, who had a tough Premier League campaign, want to sign the Merseysiders' Danny Ings and Hammers man Enner Valencia.

Valencia, 26, has voiced frustration at his lack of regular first-team football in East London and could trade places with Swansea's Andre Ayew, a reported target for Hammers boss Slaven Bilic.


- If you suggested to an Aston Villa fan that a member of the squad so dismally relegated last season could be attracting the attention of three clubs, they would probably laugh in your face.

But it's true, says Gazzetta World, which reports that AC Milan, Bastia and Liverpool are all interested in full-back Jordan Amavi, who would cost around £12m.

- Crystal Palace have moved to the front of the queue to sign Standard Liege defensive midfielder Eyong Enoh, according to HITC.

Enoh has turned down a new deal at Liege and is keen to move to the Premier League, sources told ESPN FC last week. The 30-year-old Cameroon international is also interesting Everton, Southampton and Hull.

- Former Leicester keeper Mark Schwarzer, released at the end of the Foxes' title-winning season,  is on the verge of signing for an A-League club, according to SBS.

Perth Glory and Sydney FC lead the race to sign the 43-year-old, who is looking for a one final swansong in a career that has spanned three decades.
