Transfer Rater: Kyle Walker to Bayern Munich, Cesc Fabregas to Atletico
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.
Kyle Walker to Bayern Munich
Transfermarketweb claim Tottenham Hotspur full-back Walker is a transfer target for German giants Bayern Munich. Under the guidance of manager Mauricio Pochettino, the 26-year-old has become one of the best in the world in his role. He has a contract at White Hart Lane until 2021 and Spurs will do their best to keep him there until then. But can anybody really say no to Bayern?
Cesc Fabregas to Atletico Madrid
Chelsea playmaker Fabregas has emerged as a top summer target for Atletico Madrid, reports Eurosport. The former Barcelona man has been demoted from important first-team player to more of a bit-part role under Antonio Conte. The 29-year-old's search for regular minutes may see him set for a sensational return to Spain. However, any deal hinges on Atleti overcoming their transfer ban.
Ben Gibson to Leicester City
Leicester City are looking to take advantage of their Premier League status by raiding Middlesbrough, who look set for the drop, for their star centre-back Gibson. The Daily Telegraph believe the 24-year-old has been identified as the Foxes' leading target and that the Premier League champions have not been put off by his £30 million price-tag.
Trent Alexander-Arnold to Chelsea
Premier League champions elect Chelsea are already looking at ways to improve their squad. The Blues have cast an eye over Liverpool's versatile defender Alexander-Arnold. Victor Moses has made the right wing-back role his own under Conte but beyond that the options are limited. In the recent defeat to Crystal Palace, Chelsea were forced to play Pedro in the role. However, according to sources close to Football Whispers, the 18-year-old isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City
Goal claim Manchester City are increasingly confident of signing Arsenal contract rebel Sanchez. The Chilean's future has been up in the air over recent months and the former Barcelona attacker has been linked with moves to Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain as well as a host of Chinese clubs. However, Pep Guardiola feels his relationship with the player will help swing any negotiations in his favour.
