3:58 AM Posted by Moto Musashi , , , , No comments
Who is allegedly ready to offer more than £31m to Real Madrid for Toni Kroos? Jamie Vardy is 80% sure of his future, but will it be Leicester or Arsenal? Which pair of Premier League clubs could enter a bidding for Milan's Keisuke Honda? And what is the latest update on the future of Sadio Mane at Southampton?

Learn the answers to these questions and more in today's roundup of Premier League transfer rumours.

10. West Brom Confident of Landing QPR Winger

Leicester City v Queens Park Rangers - Premier League
​After failing in a bid last summer because QPR wanted £10m, West Brom could finally be about to seal a deal for QPR's Scottish international winger Matt Phillips.

According to the ​Birmingham Mail, Baggies boss Tony Pulis is increasingly confident of reaching an agreement. Phillips has just one more year left on his current contract and it makes sense for QPR to cash in while they still can.

9. Sunderland to Make Fresh Ayew Approach

Swansea City v Liverpool - Premier League
​Sunderland could yet make a fresh approach for Swansea forward Andre Ayew this summer, according to the Sunderland Echo, who note that the Ghanaian international still remains a target for the Black Cats.

Ayew has spoken about a move away from the Liberty Stadium in the past, despite only arriving from Marseille last summer, and if Swansea feel they have no choice but to sell they could potentially demand a fee of £15m.

8. Saints Ready to Ward Off Interest in Stars

Southampton v Crystal Palace - Premier League
​Southampton may well be powerless to stop Victor Wanyama leaving this summer, while reports have indicated that Graziano Pelle is in talks with both Everton and Stoke. But the Saints are desperately trying to keep hold of other key players.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Saints are planning to offer new contracts to both Sadio Mane and Shane Long in a bid to keep the pair on the south coast for a while yet. It is said that Koeman's departure to Everton may even make Mane feel happier about staying after a deterioration in their relationship.

7. Everton Keeping an Eye on Nkoudou

​A report originating from RMC has revealed that are one of just three Premier League clubs who are keeping a close eye on promising Marseille winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou - a potential asset that could be sold should the French club need to balance the books.

They will, however, face competition from West Ham and Merseyside neighbours Liverpool.

6. London Rivals on Alert After Honda Revelation

AC Milan v Juventus FC - TIM Cup Final
​Milan and Japan star Keisuke has revealed that he could be moving on after two and a half years at the San Siro, which the Daily Express believes has put both Tottenham and West Ham on alert ahead of a potential approach.

"I've been playing for AC Milan for two years. I'm not very satisfied with my performance, this is what I acknowledge about myself," the player admitted.

"Therefore I am not sure if my team will want to keep me and I am not sure about the future of my career, so right now I can't tell you about what will happen next. From now I will have two months for my rehabilitation and I have no matches right now so I have time to recover from my injuries."

5. Liverpool Will Have to Pay Full Whack for Porto Teen

​It's been a fortnight full of rumours linking Liverpool with Porto players. First it was Yacine Brahimi, then it was Hector Herrera, and now it's 19-year-old Ruben Neves.

According to Record in Portugal, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is interested in the talented youngster, although it is said that only a monster offer of €40m will do.

Elsewhere, it has been claimed that Liverpool are in 'pole position' to land Lille play-maker Sofiane Boufal, while they are also allegedly keen on Cristian Tello - a player linked with a move to Anfield countless times in the past.

It has even been very optimistically claimed that the Reds are in the hunt for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.

4. Chelsea Eye Nainggolan Alternative

​With Radja Nainggolan almost certain to stay at Roma this summer, Chelsea's hunt for a new central midfielder has led them to rising Juventus star Stefano Sturaro, according to a report bythe Sun.

The 23-year-old didn't join Juve until after Antonio Conte left, but the new Stamford Bridge boss does still know him well after including the player in his Italy squad for Euro 2016.

In other news, Chelsea may 'soon' be speaking to Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly as they look to strengthen a leaky defence that proved to be their downfall in 2015/16.

3. Vardy 80% Sure Where Future Lies

Leicester City v Everton - Premier League
​Leicester striker Jamie Vardy won't make a formal decision about his future until after Euro 2016 with an Arsenal contract waiting on the table. However, according to the London Evening Standard, the 29-year-old is 80% sure of where he'll be playing next season.

It's bad news for the Gunners. Apparently the 24-goal front-man has discussed the situation with a handful of international colleague and is leaning towards a Leicester stay.

The Gunners may not have to wait too much long for another signing, though, after reports that Bolton have accepted an offer for England Under-21 defender Rob Holding.

2. Man Utd to Bid for 'Dream Signing' Kroos

Germany v Hungary - International Friendly
​Toni Kroos could have been a Manchester United player before joining Real Madrid. The deal was reportedly agreed when David Moyes was still manager but Louis van Gaal pulled the plug.

Now, the Daily Express cites notorious Spanish gossip merchant Fichajes to claim that United have renewed their interest in the German World Cup winner and are even ready to make an opening bid in excess of £31m.

Apparently, Kroos is a 'dream signing' for new manager Jose Mourinho and he wants the Old Trafford board to make it happen. Of course, don't let the player's recent insistence that he's not interested in leaving the Bernabeu stop the rumours.

Unfortunately for United, it looks like they may have missed out on rumoured target Miralem Pjanic after reports that the Bosnian is set to leave Roma for Juventus.

1. Man City Have Better Chance With Messi Than Rivals

​Despite recent reports suggesting that Manchester United are testing the metaphorical waters ahead of a possible bid for Lionel Messi in the future, it appears that Manchester City still have a better chance of being to pull it off.

Sport Witness notes that a report from Marca states that City are still keeping an eye on the whole situation regarding Messi's future. It is mentioned that Etihad chief executive Ferran Soriano, once of Barcelona himself, remains close to the player and his father.

That being said, the five-time Ballon d'or winner has no desire to quit Camp Nou just yet.
