With attention focusing on the summer transfer window, David Amoyal predicts how likely it is that the rumoured moves actually happen.
Mohamed Salah to Liverpool: 65 percent
After two and a half seasons in Serie A, the Egypt international could be returning to the Premier League. After losing out to Chelsea in the race to sign him in 2014, Liverpool are now once again taking concrete steps to sign the winger. They have agreed personal terms with the player, and while there is some distance between Roma and Jurgen Klopp's side on the transfer fee, it appears that a deal could be reached for around €40 million. Salah has unfinished business in the Premier League, and wants to ensure he has a significant role at Anfield -- he was given some reassurances on that front from Klopp in a recent phone conversation.
Kylian Mbappe to Arsenal: 10 percent
In the past few weeks, Monaco received a very substantial offer from Manchester United for the striker and now, according to reliable reports from France, Arsenal have also joined the race. Completing the deal would be an uphill battle for the Gunners, because on top of not being in the Champions League, Mbappe's preference is to join Real Madrid while Monaco would like to keep him at least for one more season.
Keita Balde to Juventus: 65 percent
Considering that Massimiliano Allegri often used Dani Alves as an offensive winger, landing the former Barcelona youth team product would provide an excellent and much younger replacement. Keita's contract at Lazio expires in 12 months, and he's decided he wants to join Juventus in the future. The Bianconeri will try to work out a deal with Lazio to acquire him this summer or they could just wait to sign him on a Bosman next year. Balde has also been linked to Premier League clubs, but everything points to him staying in Italy for the foreseeable future.
Andrea Belotti to Manchester United: 30 percent
With Atletico Madrid's transfer ban confirmed, the odds of Antoine Griezmann changing teams this summer have plummeted. While Alvaro Morata is Jose Mourinho's No. 1 choice, at the moment Real Madrid are asking for an exorbitant sum. As an alternative, Manchester United are interested in Belotti, who currently plays for Torino -- the club that the Red Devils did business with for Matteo Darmian. Torino are still asking for the full €100m exit clause that was included in Belotti's recent contract extension, and considering they have €40m coming in for Nikola Maksimovic and Bruno Peres, it's unlikely they will offer much of a discount.
Wojciech Szczesny to Napoli: 10 percent
The Poland international had an excellent season on loan at Roma, so it's no surprise to see him linked to other Serie A teams. While Napoli could offer him a starting place immediately, Juventus have been aggressive in their pursuit. Since he has just one year left on his deal at Arsenal, the Bianconeri consider him excellent value and want to get him in to replace Gigi Buffon after the 2018 World Cup. Juventus have reached an agreement with Szczesny on personal terms by offering a substantial salary, and the negotiation with Arsenal appears to have been completed for around €16 million as well.
Dani Alves to Chelsea: 35 percent
After struggling to adapt to life in Serie A, the former Barcelona wing-back was a key player in Juventus' run to the Champions League final, but following just one season he could be leaving Turin. An intermediary has offered Alves to Chelsea recently, and a deal could happen should the Brazil international receive a substantial raise compared to what he has left on the last year of his deal with Juventus.
Pepe Reina to Manchester City: 35 percent
After returning to Napoli following a spell at Bayern Munich, where he was managed by Pep Guardiola, Pepe Reina could be heading to England. The Spain international's agent asked Napoli for a three-year extension recently, which was essentially seen as a transfer request considering Reina's age and the fact that his contract expires in 2018. In addition to Manchester City, Reina has also been linked to Newcastle, a club also managed by one of his former managers, Rafa Benitez.
Gianluigi Donnarumma to extend with Milan: 50 percent
After offering the 18-year-old keeper a salary similar to Buffon's current wages and reinforcing the team in the very early stages of the window, Milan have done all they can to convince him to stay. But Donnarumma and his agent Mino Raiola have asked until mid-June to respond to the offer, and considering that the keeper's deal expires in 2018 they have a lot of leverage. Donnarumma would have many suitors considering that top clubs would love the idea of bringing in a goalkeeper to hold the position for more than 15 years. He could be a target for both Manchester clubs, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
Bafetimbi Gomis to Galatasaray: 45 percent
Coming off an excellent season on loan at Marseille, the striker could be heading to Turkey. Gomis has already agreed to a two-year deal with Galatasaray with an option for a third season, they are now working on reaching a deal with Swansea, who still have him under contract until 2018. Considering Gomis' previous struggles in the Premier League, the deal with Galatasaray is fairly likely especially as he only has 12 months on his agreement with the Swans.
James Rodriguez to Manchester United: 45 percent
While the Colombia international was linked to numerous clubs last January, it wasn't surprising that Real Madrid held on to him in light of their transfer ban, which has now expired. Considering that Rodriguez has become an afterthought in Zinedine Zidane's lineup, a move this summer is very likely. While AC Milan have approached his agent Jorge Mendes, the costs would be enormous for them. Manchester United, on the other hand, would have no problem signing him from a financial standpoint and considering that Inter's new coach Luciano Spalletti wants to keep Ivan Perisic, the Red Devils' interest in James has only increased.
