Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer rumors, as Paris Saint-Germain agree terms with three players and Aaron Ramsey prepares to leave Juventus.

Paris Saint-Germain have allegedly agreed personal terms with no fewer than three players ahead of a potential summer spending spree.

The Ligue 1 champions are seeking improvements in all areas of the field under new manager Christophe Galtier as they aim to avoid another calamitous Champions League collapse.

According to Get French Football News, Lille midfielder Renato Sanches, Inter Milan center-back Milan Skriniar and Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca have all agreed terms in principle with the capital club.

Sanches is expected to arrive at the Parc des Princes with minimal fuss, but PSG are yet to reach an agreement over a fee for Inter’s Skriniar, who has also been linked with Chelsea.

Sassuolo chief Giovanni Carnevali recently confirmed that his side were in talks with PSG over a deal for Scamacca, who was also briefly on the radar of Arsenal.

Over in Italy, Aaron Ramsey‘s underwhelming Juventus stint will seemingly come to an expected end soon, with the Old Lady desperate to cut the former Arsenal man from their wage bill.

Ramsey made just three Serie A appearances in the first half of the 2021-22 season before joining Rangers on loan, where he registered two goals and two assists in 13 appearances but missed a penalty in the Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Ramsey’s Allianz Arena contract now has just 12 months left to run, and The Bianconero now claims that player and club have reached an agreement over an early termination.

The report claims that Juventus will pay Ramsey € 4m (£ 3.4m) to buy him out of the final year of his contract, and doing so will help them save € 14m (£ 12m) in the 31-year-old’s wages.

Ramsey has provided six goals and six assists in 70 outings for the Old Lady in all competitions but has missed a further 34 matches due to various injury problems over the past three seasons.

A return to the Premier League will unsurprisingly be mooted for Ramsey, and that is also where Wolfsburg right-back Kevin Mbabu could find himself in the coming weeks.

The 27-year-old Switzerland international – who previously spent four-and-a-half years on the books at Newcastle United – is also due to become a free agent at the end of next season.

Wolfsburg are supposedly open to a cut-price sale this summer, and according to the Daily Mail, Fulham have now opened talks over an £ 8m deal for Mbabu.

The newly-promoted Cottagers are struggling to convert Neco Williams‘s loan move from Liverpool into a permanent deal and have therefore elected to seek out cheaper alternatives in the current market.

Mbabu failed to score or assist in 30 Bundesliga and Champions League games for Wolfsburg last season and previously made three Premier League appearances for Newcastle in the 2015-16 season.

Manchester United fans are eagerly awaiting news of some big-money signings coming through the door, but Erik ten Hag will be pleased to tie one of his prospects down to a new long-term deal.

Nineteen-year-old Zidane Iqbal – who became the first-ever British South Asian player to turn out for Man United last season – has extended his stay at the club until the summer of 2025 with the option of a further year.

Iqbal came off the bench in the dying embers of a Champions League group-stage clash with BSC Young Boys under Ralf Rangnick back in December, although he failed to make the squad for the remainder of the season.

The two-cap Iraq international would hit two goals in 18 Premier League 2 appearances for the club’s Under-23s last term, as well as registering a goal and assist in four UEFA Youth League outings.
