Latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and much more.

Man City to offload Otamendi.

Nathan Ake’s arrival at Manchester City means the team is covered for left-sided central defenders. Hence, they are now ready to part ways with Nicolas Otamendi this summer.

Man City could let go of the Argentine for around €9 million (£8m). Valencia, who sold him to the Sky Blues back in 2015 for around €35 million, are showing interest in signing him. [The Sun]

Chelsea interested in Tagliafico.

Chelsea have had no success in the transfer of Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell so far, due to the clubs being apart on a valuation. As a result, they have now turned their attention to Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico.

Frank Lampard is keen on signing a left-back, with Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilon also on his wishlist. [Sky Sports]

Ramsey unwanted at Juve.

Juventus no longer require the services of Aaron Ramsey. New boss Andrea Pirlo is planning a squad overhaul and the Welsh midfielder is surplus to his requirements. He is free to find another club after joining the Serie A giants on a free transfer just last summer. [Mirror]

Liverpool announce Wilson valuation.

Liverpool have put a price tag of €22 million (£20m) on Harry Wilson. The 23-year old forward wants regular minutes in top-flight football next season and the club are ready to let him leave.

Leeds United are the front-runners to land him, though Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, and Southampton are all interested. [Mirror]

Silva set to join Lazio.

Lazio are on the verge of securing the signature of Manchester City’s David Silva. The transfer could be completed as early as in the ‘next 24 hours’, with only the Spaniard’s signature keeping the deal from being confirmed.

However, an official announcement will not be made until the end of Man City’s Champions League campaign. [Gazzetta dello Sport]
