A roundup of online transfer rumours courtesy of Press Association Sport.

ALFIE MAWSON: Tottenham are showing an interest in the Swansea and England Under-21 defender, according to the Daily Mirror.

JOE HART: Manchester City have told Newcastle and West Ham the England goalkeeper will only be allowed to leave on a permanent deal not on loan, writes the Sun.

CHRIS SMALLING: The England defender, 27, will hold talks with Manchester United over his first-team chances ahead of next summer’s World Cup, according to the Daily Mail.

The Sun reports Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been left out of the club’s pre-season tour of the United States and will complete a move back to Everton this week. Rooney will be allowed to leave Old Trafford on a free transfer with Everton paying him his current £250,000 a week wages.

Rooney could form a new-look strikeforce at Goodison with OLIVIER GIROUD with the Sun also reporting that he is set to join the Toffees from Arsenal in a £20m deal to replace ROMELU LUKAKU, who is set to rejoin Chelsea in a £90m deal.

The Independent writes that Manchester United will make a final push to bring ALVARO MORATA to Old Trafford. Manager Jose Mourinho has become frustrated with the lack of new faces at the club but Real Madrid are holding out for their £72m asking price. Mourinho wants his squad complete before getting on the plane for the US and so far only Victor Lindelof has arrived at the club.

Roma defender ANTONIO RUDIGER has arrived in London to complete a £36million move to Chelsea, according to the Daily Mirror. The Blues have beaten off a bid by Manchester City for the Germany international and Rudiger will undergo a medical before the deal, for an initial £31m with £5m in add-ons, is completed.

And finally, the Daily Mail reports that Burnley have had an £8m bid for Nottingham Forest striker BRITT ASSOMBALONGA rejected by the Championship side. The 24-year-old, who has scored 30 goals in 47 starts for Forest, previously worked with Clarets manager Sean Dyche at Watford. Forest are unlikely to allow their leading scorer last season to leave the club for anything less than £10m.

    Only 20 mil for Giroud? That’s another great bit of business for the tofees if so. 50 for king, 20 for Giroud, gotta be bollox!

    • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 4:35 pm

      Giroud is 30 and very experienced. Probably got three years left in him as never had pace anyway. Good price.

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 July 5, 2017 at 3:22 pm

    A recap of last years Ronglish…when everyone fell aoart three quarters in Syd merely took it over….so those that had the luxury sitting in first looking down at the poor bastards below them would be hungry to tadte some of that this season and those at the bottom may not take it as lightly.
    I mean its fine to talk like you know about footie but when you are in the drivers seat in a Ronglish car the pressures on you to win.

    Do it.

    • Caveman July 5, 2017 at 3:24 pm

      Just like Spurs, I was a close second.

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 July 5, 2017 at 3:27 pm

        This season no half measures like last Cavey….kick it up mate!

  • VincentianMagic July 5, 2017 at 3:19 pm

    I’d take Mawson as a replacement for Wimmer. Also, Veltman as a RB/RWB/CB for Walker (at a fraction of the price if reports are to be believed).

    Siggy instead of Sissy will do just fine.

    Just need a CF – King would do well and could play alongside or to the left/right of Kane.

    Wouldn’t say no to Silva for a dash of experience in the middle of the park either; or Barkley if the price is right (although I feel Siggy is the main choice now and if we get him then that might peeve off Everton anyway).

    If we wanted a genuine winger (unlikely I know), then D Gray would my choice.

    Farewell and thanks: Wimmer, Walker, N’jie, N’Koudo and Sissy.
    Hello and welcome: Mawson, Veltman, Siggy, Silva and King.

    Should give us a bit of strength in depth for the season ahead.

    • Chris cp July 5, 2017 at 3:24 pm

      So let’s sign a bunch of mid to lower table players. Spurs need quality

      • VincentianMagic July 5, 2017 at 3:28 pm

        Disagree, Veltman is a quality defender, is a Dutch international and versatile. Mawson already looks as good as, if not better than Wimmer and will only improve.

        Silva is a very good Portugese international and Siggy has performed well in the PL for several seasons – as well as being a proven international.

        King is a risk, but scored 16 for an average team last season and offers pace and mobility. He is also a full Norwegian international.

        I’d love Isco, Varane and Aubeyamang but unfortunately it aint gonna happen.

    I’d like to know where levy expects us to finish this season, or even if he’s given it any thought at all what with all the exciting off the field projects he’s caught up with.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 5, 2017 at 2:59 pm

          I actually find the championship more exciting than the prem…. But…no, can’t have that.

          • ronwol196061🇨🇦 July 5, 2017 at 3:01 pm

            Levy would agree except he will be looking for players for 2 and elevenpence
