Transfer Rater: Kurt Zouma to West Brom, Aubameyang 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 for the summer. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Juan Foyth to Tottenham Hotspur
News emerged in the Evening Standard earlier this week that Tottenham were keen to sign Foyth from Argentine sign Estudiantes. The 19-year-old centre-back, who is also capable of playing deep in midfield, burst on to the scene earlier this year and went on to make four appearances for Estudiantes before representing his country at the Under-20 World Cup. The Daily Mail claim Mauricio Pochettino still has a close relationship with Estudiantes' director of sport -- former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron -- and hopes to use it to his advantage when he flies into London this week.
Jairo Riedewald to Crystal Palace
Frank De Boer is raiding former club Ajax to bring versatile defender Riedewald to Selhurst Park. The director of football in Amsterdam, Marc Overmars, has agreed to cash in on the 20-year-old, who lost his place in Peter Bosz's starting XI last season. Sky Sports News claim the Premier League side have offered £8 million for the Dutch defender and a deal could be completed later this week.
Marko Arnautovic to West Ham United
Arnautovic has submitted a written transfer request to push through a move away from Stoke City after West Ham had their initial £15m bid rejected. According to the Evening Standard, it's not done anything to sway his current employers, who have now reportedly rejected an improved £20m offer for the Austrian forward. Stoke believe that with three years remaining on his contract, Arnautovic is worth a lot more than what's being offered.
Kurt Zouma to West Brom
According to Press Association Sport, West Brom are set to hold talks with Chelsea about the possibility of loaning Zouma for the 2017-18 season. Antonio Conte is keen for the 22-year-old Frenchman to get first team football and with the arrival of Antonio Rudiger it's unlikely that will happen at Stamford Bridge. Tony Pulis wants Zouma to challenge Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans for a starting berth at the Hawthorns.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Chelsea
Borussia Dortmund striker Aubameyang has been offered to Chelsea after the Blues missed out on primary target Romelu Lukaku, who joined Manchester United. According to Sky Sports News, Conte's men could rival AC Milan for the £70m-rated striker's signature and his departure could see BVB make a move for Olivier Giroud, reportedly an Everton target.
