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.
Mauro Icardi to Manchester United
Inter Milan captain Icardi has already been subject of Real Madrid transfer rumours this season but said at the time he was committed to Inter. However, according to Corriere dello Sport, the Argentine forward's representative, wife Wanda, is working with super-agent Mino Raiola to push through a move to Old Trafford. Icardi is also in talks with Inter over a new contract with the Italian side hopeful of removing the release clause in his deal. Icardi would like to see that price increased to €150 million on top of a pay rise.
Steven Bergwijn to Everton
Despite spending almost £50m on attacking reinforcements in January in Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun, Everton are preparing an offer for pacy PSV Eindhoven forward Bergwijn. According to ESPN FC, the Toffees will battle with Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur to sign the 20-year-old winger. Bergwijn has scored five goals and registered six assists in 22 Eredivisie games this season. Spurs have had success buying from Ajax in the past with Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez.
Jack Wilshere to Juventus
Out-of-contract Arsenal midfielder Wilshere is attracting interest from Italian champions Juventus, according to the Daily Mirror. The 26-year-old is free to speak to foreign clubs about a move and can sign a pre-contract agreement before completing a free transfer in the summer. However, the England international is also in talks with Arsenal about extending his stay at the Emirates Stadium. After forcing his way back into Arsene Wenger's thoughts following a season on loan at Bournemouth, Wilshere has become a key man for the North Londoners.
Erik Lamela to Inter Milan
After more than a year on the sidelines with a mystery hip injury, Lamela is fit once more and back in Mauricio Pochettino's plans at Tottenham. However, the 25-year-old Argentine is no longer a regular starter and has made just two Premier League starts this term with Son Heung-Min benefiting from his lengthy lay-off. A return to Italy, according to Calciomercato, could be on the cards with Inter Milan interested in bringing the former Roma winger back to Serie A.
Luke Shaw to Chelsea
Forced to wait until mid-December for his first Premier League appearance of the season, Manchester United left-back Shaw has finally regained Jose Mourinho's trust and is back in favour at Old Trafford. A new deal had also been on the horizon, too, with his existing agreement running until next summer. However, according to the Daily Mirror, the 22-year-old England international has yet to begin negotiations with United and he has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Chelsea and Arsenal. United have been linked with replacements already in Tottenham's Danny Rose and Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon.
