Rumours rated: Draxler to Arsenal, Lemar to Prem, Howedes to Juventus
With the transfer window coming to a close, David Amoyal predicts how likely it is that these rumoured moves happen.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Chelsea: 75 percent
After turning down Arsenal's offer for a contract extension, the versatile English international is set to leave. While Liverpool are interested, Oxlade-Chamberlain prefers to stay in London and a £35 million deal with Chelsea is set to be agreed.
Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City: 50 percent
While the Gunners have constantly claimed they are comfortable with losing Sanchez for free once his contract expires at the end of the season, their resolve will be tested in the final days of the window. Manchester City are reportedly willing to offer Raheem Sterling to sweeten the deal but they are also comfortable paying just cash. In the meantime, the press in Chile claim Sanchez has asked to leave the national team's retreat to tend to some personal matters. While Manchester United are also interested, it appears Arsenal's preference is to negotiate with City.
Julian Draxler to Arsenal: 30 percent
After a half season in France, the 23-year-old German international could be on the move again after all the additions made to Paris Saint-Germain's frontline. The Gunners have been interested in Draxler dating back to his time at Schalke, and with Sanchez and Oxlade-Chamberlain potentially leaving, they would have significant resources to reinvest. Arsenal will likely face competition from German and English clubs for Draxler, whose departure could help PSG start to balance their books for financial fair play.
Thomas Lemar to the Premier League: 30 percent
Could the talented 21-year-old winger join his former teammate Bernardo Silva in England before the window closes? Not likely, according to reliable reports in France, in fact both of Liverpool's recent bids, one including Divock Origi, were turned down. It appears Monaco are determined to keep Lemar after losing a raft of key stars this summer.
William Carvalho to Monaco: 35 percent
The Portuguese defensive midfielder could be reunited with Leonardo Jardim, who gave him his debut at Sporting Lisbon a few years ago, should Fabinho head to PSG. While West Ham offered up to €43m to sign Carvalho, Monaco could complete the deal at a lower price thanks to their strong relationship with Sporting. As an alternative to Carvalho, Monaco are also considering Anderlecht's Leander Dendoncker.
Pepe Reina to PSG: 5 percent
At the end of Napoli's 3-1 win at home to Atalanta last Sunday, the former Liverpool keeper received a huge ovation from the fans, with his future uncertain. Despite failing to reach an agreement over an extension of his contract, Napoli have decided to keep Reina as it appears Liverpool aren't interested in selling Simon Mignolet and Real Sociedad are asking for €30 million for Geronimo Rulli. For once, PSG aren't likely to land one of their transfer targets.
Rafinha Alcantara to Milan: 40 percent
After a stellar summer window that saw the signing of over 10 players, Milan are looking for a bargain to complete Vincenzo Montella's squad. The Rossoneri are interested in signing the Barcelona midfielder to provide backup for Frank Kessie and Lucas Biglia, but they are only willing to complete the deal with Barcelona on a loan with an option to buy. Milan could profit from their relationship with former director Ariedo Braida, who joined the Blaugrana's management team a few years ago.
Benedikt Howedes to Juventus: 75 percent
The Serie A champions have yet to replace Leonardo Bonucci and are looking for a backup left-back for Alex Sandro. The versatile Schalke defender would provide cover for Massimiliano Allegri's squad, and Juventus have reached an agreement on personal terms -- likely on loan with an option to buy -- with Schalke.
Kwadwo Asamoah to Galatasaray: 55 percent
While Juventus' plan was to bring back Leonardo Spinazzola, Atalanta have so far refused to terminate the loan agreement a year early. It will be interesting to see if Howedes' expected arrival would make the Ghanaian international available. Asamoah has reached an agreement with Galatasaray, who appear willing to offer around €6m to Juventus.
Moussa Sissoko to Inter: 15 percent
Prior to signing Joao Mario last summer, the Nerazzurri attempted to sign the French midfielder when he was at Newcastle. With just a few days left in the transfer window, Inter have rekindled their interest in Sissoko but between Tottenham's unwillingness to accept a loan and not being able to guarantee Sissoko playing time before the Russia World Cup, completing the move will be rather difficult.
