Football transfer rumours: Borussia Dortmund to move for Wilfried Zaha?

Scott Murray on 10 July 2018

A few months ago, it sounded like Napoli schemer Jorginho was on his way to Liverpool. Then Manchester City got involved, and the Italian midfielder seemed a shoo-in to join the Premier League champions. But at the last minute Chelsea have poked their neb in. City are still hoping to seal the deal, but just in case there’s a last twist, they’re also looking at Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovacic.

Across the way, Manchester United’s dogged pursuit of Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic continues apace. They’re also keeping tabs on young Molde striker Erling Haaland. Yes it is his son.

Wilfried Zaha has been a long-term target for both Everton and Tottenham Hotspur. Now Borussia Dortmund are in the mix. As if the Jorginho story wasn’t disorienting enough.

Southampton are in negotiations with Borussia Mönchengladbach for central defender Jannik Vestergaard; West Ham wish to pair new boy Jack Wilshere with Seville’s Franco Vázquez; Liverpool have been offered Juventus winger Marko Pjaca.

And it was always bound to happen: World Cup and Golden Boot hopeful Harry Kane has been linked with Real Madrid, who want to pair the Spurs striker with popularity’s Neymar. Just idle speculation at the minute, but watch this one rise up the Rumour Mill page quicksmart if Harry ends up doing a Geoff Hurst-style turn on Sunday.
