"PSV sees Jahanbakhsh as possible successor to Lozano"
In the search for a successor for Hirving Lozano, who is about to sign with Napoli, PSV drew attention to Alireza Jahanbakhsh. In the 2018/2019 season, the Iranian became AZ's top scorer for the Eredivisie and forced a transfer to Brighton & Hove Albion, but he hardly ever played in the Premier League. A departure from the offside player would therefore be negotiable for the English club. PSV tried unsuccessfully to take over Steven Berghuis from Feyenoord and started playing at Groningen player Ritsu Doan against the high asking price. (Source: VI )

"Bruno Fernandes linked to Real Madrid"
Sporting Portugal tries to sell Bruno Fernandes to Real Madrid. The 24-year-old Portuguese, who was the most productive midfielder in the major European competitions with 32 goals in the past season, saw a transfer to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Now the club of trainer Marcel Keizer hopes to sell the captain to 'De Koninklijke', because that is one of the few clubs that could meet the high asking price of 70 million. However, the Madrilenians are currently concentrating on Neymar and Paul Pogba. (Source: AS)

After one season, Rasmus Thelander pulls the door close to Vitesse. The 28-year-old defender returns to Aalborg, where he also started his career in 2010.

Thelander still had a contract until mid-2022.

"Twente and Utrecht want to rent Oriol Busquets from Barça"
FC Twente is hopeful that it can take over Oriol Busquets on a rental basis from FC Barcelona. The twenty-year-old defensive midfielder (not related to his famous namesake and team-mate Sergio) mainly plays his matches in the second team of the Catalans, but was recently part of the main force in a practice game with Chelsea. Twente receives competition from FC Utrecht and some Italian clubs, although Busquets would prefer FC Twente, where Aitor, Espinosa and Pleguezuelo already have several Spaniards in the selection.

Mitroglou according to Galatasaray on a rental basis to PSV
We start the day with the most striking transfer news from late last night. The experienced Greek striker Konstantinos Mitroglou is playing for PSV this season. Galatasaray reports that the 65-time international rented from Olympique Marseille on the club site after the winter break. According to PSV the reporting is premature, but there are conversations going on. The 31-year-old Mitroglou has to help the Eindhoven team with goals now that Luuk de Jong has left for Seville and Hirving Lozano is about to move to Napoli.

'Atlético hijacks Olmo in front of Ajax's nose'
In the battle for Dani Olmo, Ajax has received strong competition from Atlético Madrid. The Spaniards even seem to have the best papers to take over the talented midfielder from Dinamo Zagreb because Ajax was shocked by the transfer fee that the Croats demand. Atlético would be willing to pay 40 million euros for the Spanish youth international, but must first get that money from somewhere. With the sale of Ángel Correa and Nikola Kalinic, the Madrilenians hope to raise the necessary money. (Source: AS )

"Zidane changed his mind about James"
James Rodríguez's departure from Real Madrid seemed inevitable, but like Gareth Bale, coach Zinédine Zidane has changed his mind about the Colombian midfielder. Partly due to the suspension of Luka Modric, who was red in the first league match against Celta de Vigo, the Frenchman needs the 27-year-old Rodríguez again and is considering giving the Colombian a basic place against Real Valladolid next Sunday. Zidane is said to be pleased with the Rodríguez attitude, which has continued to work hard despite transfer rumors. (Source: AS )

'AZ, Utrecht and Heerenveen want Ramselaar'
There seems to be an end to the hopeless situation of Bart Ramselaar at PSV this summer. The 23-year-old midfielder would be in the interest of AZ, FC Utrecht and sc Heerenveen. The Dutchman has been allowed to leave Eindhoven for a long time, but to date interested clubs have stumbled over the financial picture. Ramselaar, who is still in jail for two years, came from FC Utrecht to PSV for about 5 million euros in 2016, but could never impress in Brabant. He played 62 games in the Eredivisie for PSV and scored once. (Source: VI )

Dost denounces Sporting attitude
It seems to be no longer good between Bas Dost and Sporting CP. Gunther Neuhaus, the spokesperson for the Dutch striker, denounces the attitude of the Portuguese club, who stated in a statement that they were angry about the financial demands of the Dost camp on the possible transfer to Eintracht Frankfurt. "It is bizarre that Sporting publicly stains his player Bas Dost, the top scorer of the last three seasons, publicly in a statement," Neuhaus grumbles. "The club informed us in July that Dost had to be sold, because Sporting could no longer pay his salary. Bas was simply no longer available. He would no longer play and had to leave."
