Sports mole rounds up the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Sunday February 21st.
Premier League on Sunday morning Transfer conversation Summary of the news:
Barcelona have reportedly put together a five-man shortlist in preparation to recruit a new center-forward for the club during this summer’s transfer window.
The Catalan giants allowed Luis Suarez to leave Camp Nou with a free transfer last year and the club were easy in the last third of the field during the 2020-21 season.
According to The Mirror, Ronald Koeman’s side have identified five strikers who can add to the squad this summer and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland is on the shortlist.
The future of Haaland is currently the subject of much speculation. A number of teams, including Real Madrid, believe they are desperate to sign the Norwegian international.
The report claims that Inter Milan duo Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, Lyons Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero from Manchester City are options too.
Inter are said to be determined to keep both Lukaku and Martinez, but Memphis and Aguero will no longer have contracts with their respective clubs at the end of June.
Lionel Messi remains tied to a Camp Nou move and the Argentina international is expected to start looking for new pastures after his contract expires.
Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.
The Red Devils are expected to bring a new center-back to the club during this summer’s transfer window. Head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for a partner for Harry Maguire.
United were closely linked to Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano but the French international have agreed to join Bayern Munich after the German champions activated their release clause.
The 20-time English champions have also been credited with a stake in Konate, who will have a € 45m (£ 39m) release clause on their contract during this summer’s transfer window.
According to Bild, United are considering an approach for the 21-year-old who has only just got back into action after an ankle problem that kept him away from mid-December to early February.
Solskjaer’s side would reportedly be ready to allow Axel Tuanzebe to leave the club on loan this summer if they bring a new center-back into the club.
