All aboard the transfer merry-go-round? (0:37)

Could 2017 summer transfer window be the 'summer of strikers', with several high-profile names potentially moving clubs? (0:37)

The football world's gossip mill is in full swing, and Transfer Talk is monitoring the whispers ahead of all the summer moves. Check out the latest deals here.

Liverpool confident over James deal

Jurgen Klopp could land Real Madrid star James Rodriguez, with The Mirror reporting that Liverpool believe they can sign the Colombian if they qualify for the Champions League.

The former Monaco and Porto star will likely move on this summer, having not featured in Zinedine Zidane's first team for much of the season.

Another player out of favour this season has been Isco, but the Spaniard is thought to have been offered a new deal, which means Los Blancos could be more open to selling James.

Zidane would be open to including him in a move for Chelsea's Eden Hazard, but with the Blues reluctant to sell, Liverpool could move into contention to offer James a fresh start.

North London derby for Barkley

Arsenal and Tottenham will go head-to-head to sign Everton star Ross Barkley, claims the Star.

The Gunners, regardless of whether Arsene Wenger remains in charge at the Emirates, have highlighted the England international as a potential replacement should Mesut Ozil move on this summer.

The 23-year-old is reportedly stalling on a new contract at Goodison, too, which could attract £30 million offers.

Spurs believe that the player's close friendship with Dele Alli may put them in an excellent position to win the race, while both Manchester clubs and Chelsea may also emerge as contenders for his signature.

Milan ready to swoop for Wilshere

Jack Wilshere could make a surprise move to AC Milan once his loan to Bournemouth expires at the end of the season, reports the Mail.

The Arsenal midfielder will have one year remaining on his deal this summer with the Gunners yet to start negotiations for an extension.

The Rossoneri could have new investment this summer, with a takeover set for completion in the coming months, meaning they will be able to match Wilshere's £90,000-per-week wages.

Watford, Crystal Palace, Roma and Benfica are also interested with a move away probable should Wenger remain in charge.

Arsenal target Schmeichel

The Gunners are set for a busy summer it seems, as they are also targeting Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, reports the Mirror, given Arsene Wenger's desire to provide No. 1 Petr Cech with better competition.

David Ospina is likely to leave the Emirates this summer, which has led to Schmeichel emerging as an ideal replacement.

The Dane, who has impressed with a series of stunning performances in the Champions League, may even displace the former Chelsea shot-stopper as first choice.

With the Foxes now unlikely to play in Europe's premier competition next season unless they can go all the way this year, Schmeichel may be tempted to move to London in search of European football.


- Demarai Gray could walk away from Leicester this summer, with the Mirror saying Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton are all ready to pay his £12m buyout clause.

Having been unable to tie down a starting role with the Foxes since moving from Birmingham, a fresh start seems likely.

- Chelsea and Manchester United target Andrea Belotti has revealed to Tuttosport that he wants to stay at Torino.

Belotti has been in stunning form for the Granata this season and leads the race to be the capocannoniere with 22 Serie A goals.

"I've said it to my fans, I'll stay," said the 23-year-old after Italy's game with Albania in Palermo.

- Manchester City are monitoring the progress of Espanyol's Aaron Martin Caricol, with the Mirror noting that Pep Guardiola is a big fan.

The left-back could offer a long-term solution to City's problem left-back position, and the Spaniard has a release clause of £4.2m plus add-ons that the Premier League giants could trigger this summer.
