Things change in the blink of an eye in football.
The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the whisper.
Here are today’s top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest rumours …
Callum Wilson to Newcastle
According to the Chronicle, Newcastle are planning to raid Bournemouth yet again after the success of Matt Ritchie. This time they have Callum Wilson in their sights and believe their project in the North East will be enough to convince the striker to drop down a division, at least for the time being. Newcastle’s transfer strategy has shifted lately with the club looking to bring in young British talent and feel Wilson ticks all of the boxes.
Kamil Grosicki to West Ham
Polish publication Przeglad Sportowy linked Grosicki with a move to West Ham in January. The Rennes winger had Premier League admirers in the summer after a successful Euro 2016, with both Everton and Burnley keen but a move didn’t materialise. Bilic has an abundance of wingers at his disposal but that’s not stopped him sending scouts to watch the player on a regular basis.
Sami Khedira to New York City FC
Calciomercato claim Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira is interesting LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls and NYC FC. The German’s contract with the Serie A giants runs until 2019 but the website suggests he may sit down and look at his options in the coming summer.
Pedro Obiang to Roma
Roma are reportedly keen on bringing Pedro Obiang back to Italy. The midfielder, who West Ham signed from Sampdoria in the summer of 2015, is yet to settle in England due to injuries but this hasn’t stopped Roma scouting the 24-year-old as they look to bolster their squad.
Moise Kean to Manchester City
The 16-year-old Juventus wonderkid is on Manchester City’s radar as they look to bring in yet another talented young attacker. Kean made history for Juventus by becoming the first player born in the 2000s to make his debut for the Serie A giants and there are a host of clubs looking to sign the player. City boss Pep Guardiola seemingly believes he has the raw potential to be moulded into the best in the world and wants to oversee his development.
