The latest transfer rumours from around the world.

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 the latest gossip.

Mario Gotze to Liverpool

Henderson is no Gerrard but Liverpool captain still leads Klopp's men

Former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman speaks exclusively to ESPN FC about Liverpool's progress under Jurgen Klopp.

It was first mentioned by Adam Lallana earlier in the week, but Jordan Henderson has now provided more details about the "players only" meeting he organised in between Liverpool's dreadful 2-0 loss at Hull and their morale boosting 2-0 win over Tottenham.

It's easy to be cynical about such things, or to jokingly ask "Why didn't he call it at the beginning of January instead of February?" but the point is that as club captain, Henderson took the initiative and did something proactive. For that he...

Coincidences between Houllier's and Klopp's reigns as Liverpool rebuild

Former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman speaks exclusively to ESPN FC about Liverpool's progress under Jurgen Klopp.

Jurgen Klopp has taken his Liverpool squad to a training camp in La Manga. Since he sometimes complains about England's lack of a winter break, being knocked out of the FA Cup early gives his team a chance to belatedly regroup and revitalise.

It means a 16-day gap between league fixtures. Unusual, but it's not the record for Liverpool this century as they went 20 days without a game in February 2000.

It's just one of a number of coincidences between Klopp's reign and that of Liverpool's...

Liverpool training camp in La Manga: Five players who must impress

Former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman speaks exclusively to ESPN FC about Liverpool's progress under Jurgen Klopp.

Jurgen Klopp is making the most of Liverpool's absence from the FA Cup. The Reds are in the south-east of Spain at a four-day warm-weather training camp and, in the eyes of the Liverpool manager, this break is seen as another "preseason" with the team not due to return to action until Feb. 27.

Double training sessions are on the agenda as Klopp looks to get his Liverpool side in fine shape for the back end of the Premier League campaign.

Liverpool squad depth concern as Klopp fails to keep up with Chelsea

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says he knew Liverpool would beat Tottenham.

For all the talk of slumps and being unable to beat the lesser teams, it's often overlooked that when Liverpool have had their first choice players (specifically the front six) on the pitch this season, more often than not they have been very impressive.

They won at Arsenal and Chelsea and only an assistant referee's errant flag robbed them of a win at Tottenham. They put that right by beating the Londoners at Anfield last weekend, and all of those fine results and performances -- as well as plenty...

Liverpool's great win vs. Spurs hasn't erased their biggest flaw

Steve Nicol defends his decision not to pick Liverpool against Spurs, but says their performance was no surprise.

Liverpool's excellent 2-0 win over Tottenham had the added advantage of shifting focus onto the Londoners' flaws. It's suddenly been noticed that Tottenham don't have much luck in their biggest matches. For a while this conveniently took Liverpool out of the firing line for their own flaw -- struggles in games they ought to win.

Georginio Wijnaldum had a particularly good game, which emboldened him enough to speculate on why Liverpool had such a rough time of it in 2017 previously. "I think in...
