Transfer Talk: Madrid prepared to wait for €60m-rated Davies

The summer transfer window is open for the Premier League and is set to open across Europe soon, and there are plenty of moves in the works and gossip swirling around. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings, goings and, of course, done deals!

TOP STORY: Bayern open to €60m deal for Davies

Bayern Munich would be willing to let left-back Alphonso Davies leave if they receive an offer of €60 million, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The 23-year-old is set to enter the final year of his contract next month and has recently been on the radar of Real Madrid. Los Blancos are said to not believe reports that the Bundesliga side would be prepared to keep Davies for another 12 months before letting him leave on a free transfer and are keeping close tabs on the situation.

The LaLiga club aren’t currently prepared to meet Bayern Munich’s valuation and would at most be willing to propose an offer worth €30m, though they could also face competition from clubs in the Premier League.

Davies, who is set to star for Canada in their Copa América opener against Argentina on Thursday, is yet to make any progress with Bayern in talks over a new contract.

PAPER GOSSIP

Atlético Madrid are interested in Feyenoord defender Dávid Hancko, reports Marca. The LaLiga club have been prioritising a move for a centre-back this summer, and it is believed that they have already begun their approach to sign the 26-year-old, who is currently at the European Championship with Slovakia. He made 34 appearances in the Eredivisie last season.

Chelsea are keen on Bologna centre-back Riccardo Calafiori, says Nicolo Schira. The Blues are reported to have sent scouts to watch the 22-year-old during Italy’s 2-1 win over Albania on Saturday, and it is believed that an offer worth €40m would be enough to persuade the Serie A side to part ways with him.

– No offers will be considered by Sporting CP for midfielder Morten Hjulmand until after the European Championship, reports Ben Jacobs. Multiple clubs have recently been linked with the 24-year-old Denmark international including Manchester United, but it is reported that a deal could only currently be possible if his release clause of €80m is activated.

AS Roma are interested in a move for Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels, according to Calciomercato. Hummels, 35, recently decided to leave BVB at the end of his contract, and it is said that initial contact has already been made to his representatives by the Serie A club, with manager Daniele De Rossi keen to reinforce his defence this summer.

Napoli have drawn up a shortlist of options to shore up their defence, according to Gianluca Di Marzio. New Azzurri boss Antonio Conte has identified Torino centre-back Alessandro Buongiorno as his priority target, with Atletico Madrid’s Mario Hermoso, Real Madrid’s Rafa Marín, and Parma‘s 20-year-old prodigy Alessandro Circati all named as alternatives.

– Talks are set to take place between Manchester City and the representatives of Phil Foden over a new contract when he returns from the European Championship, according to Football Insider. The 24-year-old is said to be looking for a new deal that reflects his performances in manager Pep Guardiola’s side, and the Citizens are keen to ensure that he stays at the club as he is a key figure in their future plans.
