Premier League Transfer Rumors
Manchester Duo could soon be ex-Manchester United Duo
Manchester United central defensive pairing of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling could soon be shown the doors from the clubs with both their contracts set to expire in the summer.
Phil Jones who made the switch to United in 2011 from Blackburn and Smalling who was brought to United in 2010 from Fulham have both seen their Manchester United careers plagued by injuries and inconsistent performances.
The defensive pairing have been impressive in their last two league outings against Tottenham and Liverpool but with Louis Van Gaal eyeing German defender Matt Hummels and French defender Aymeric Laporte there might be no room for the two young England Internationals in Van Gaal’s plans.
Mateo Kovacic and Martin Montoya reportedly being eyed by Liverpool
Liverpool are reportedly set to make a move for Inter Milan midfielder and Croatian international Mateo Kovacic. Kovacic has been scouted by Liverpool over the last few months.
Valued at around ₤25 million Kovacic has got the attention of Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Manchester United and Arsenal but Kovacic himself as per reports wants a switch to the Merseyside Giants.
Long time Liverpool transfer target Martin Montoya is desperate for a move away from the Spanish giants Barcelona after struggling to find himself a place in the Luis Enrique’s side this season.
Montoya who came through the Barcelona youth ranks has featured in just 9 games in all competitions this season. Liverpool who are set to offload Glen Johnson at the end of this season sees Montoya as a potential replacement for the England International.

Where will Glen Johnson go?
Glen Johnson whose contract with Liverpool is set to expire this summer is reportedly a transfer target of Catalan giants Barcelona.
Johnson is seen as a temporary replacement to Brazilian International Dani Alves whose contract ends this summer and no new contract talks have taken place.
Barca can buy new players this summer but will have to wait till January 2016 to register them to play for them.
Charlie Austin eyed by the Eagles
Alan Pardew has reportedly made QPR striker Charlie Austin as his number one transfer target this summer. The QPR striker who has been on a incredible scoring form this season scoring 15 goals for the R’s in all competitions.
QPR have failed to capitalize on Austin’s performances this season and their hopes of Premier League Safety are slowly but surely dying.
Austin is valued at somewhere around (8-10)₤ million with QPR having bought him two years ago for just 4₤ million.
The Battle of the Biggies for Ross Barkley
The Everton midfielder and England International Ross Barkley is reportedly being targeted by Premier powerhouses Chelsea and Manchester City.
The 21-yr old is valued at around 50₤ million by Everton and will certainly not let go of their most priced asset cheaply. Roberto Martinez has repeatedly reiterated that he is not interested of selling Barkley and wants to build the team around him so the only way they’ll change their mind is to come forward with big money.
Barkley rose through the Everton youth ranks and has made 67 appearances for the Toffees till date scoring 8 goals in total.
Juventus set to make a move for Edin Dzeko
Juventus are set to make a ₤15 million bid for Manchester City striker and Bosnia & Herzegovina International Edin Dzeko. The 29-yr old had signed a four year deal with the defending Premier League champions last summer but with the arrival of Wilfred Bony in January the fight to partner Sergio Aguero upfront is about to become more difficult.
Mourinho set for a reunion with Adebayor?
Adebayor has had a torrid time at Tottenham this season scoring just two goals in the 10 games he has played for them his season. Adebayor has found himself on the bench for more times than not and that is largely due to the form of Harry Kane.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho who has managed Adebayor in the past at Real Madrid sees the Togo international as a possible replacement for Didier Drogba at the end of the season.
Drogba is reportedly set to leave to Chelsea at the end of the season after spending most of the season as the third-choice striker behind Diego Costa and Loic Remy.
Mourinho sees Adebayor as an ready-made for Drogba and provide competition to the other two strikers. Mourinho had loaned Adebayor from Manchester City back in 2012 and was impressive for the Spanish giants scoring 8 goals in 22 games.
