Rumours abound as Rodgers looks to rebuild

Silly season is well and truly upon us with this short summer break and also the heat, it’s hard to tell which transfers are actually being lined up and which are just rumours slipped into the papers by someone on work experience when no one else was looking.

One thing we do know is that Chelsea and several other clubs are keen on Ben Chilwell, so it’s left-backs are the most likely to come true.

And Brendan Rodgers is casting a wide net in his search for a potential replacement with City thought to be looking at Barcelona youngsters Francisco Trincao and Jean-Clair Todibo.

Rodgers is also said to have Burnley winger Dwight McNeil on his radar this summer along with Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.

But reports claim that Kelechi Iheanacho may have to depart before any big-money deals can be struck. Fenerbache are rumoured to have offered 12 million just to rent the striker, but there’s also talk of a possible £40 million on the table from Aston Villa.
