Todayâs fluff is sounding the alarm
Paris Saint-Germain are to put Zlatan Ibrahimovic up for sale. Arsenal and Manchester United are already said to be vaguely interested, which is a start. Still a couple of weeks before the transfer window closes, so plenty of time for that interest to firm up into mild enthusiasm, and then blind panic when they fail to land Karim Benzema or Thomas Müller.
Everton are considering a bid for the Dynamo Kyiv winger Andriy Yarmolenko. His buy-out clause is £17.5m, though the Goodison giants reckon a £10m offer will suffice. If this one goes through, neighbours Liverpool may need to have a good think, seeing theyâve been after Yarmolenko since Bob Paisley was in short trousers, but have never been able to close the deal. Time to send Ian Ayre on a negotiation skills course.
