With another day of the transfer window passing by, we are here again with another episode of rating the transfer rumours of the day. There have been some updates as well as new stories today as we take a look at the biggest rumours and attempt to rate them…
PSG in for Koulibaly
Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in signing Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli. PSG director Leonard has already spoken to the Senegalese’s agent as the Parisiens are willing to offer him a £10.2million contract.
Rumour rating: 5/10
Napoli won’t be willing to sell one of their star players in the middle of the season and PSG don’t necessarily need a big-name like him right now either.
United want Bellingham
Manchester United are keen on signing Birmingham City teenage sensation Jude Bellingham, according to The Athletic. The 16-year-old has invoked the interest of some top clubs with excellent displays ever since debuting for Birmingham, who want £25million for the youngster.
Rumour rating: 7/10

Bellingham would fall in line with the current trend of signings at the Old Trafford as the Red Devils are looking to fill up their squad with young and talented English players – and Bellingham is one of them.
Move for Piatek stalled
Tottenham Hotspur’s move for Krzysztof Piatek has stalled over Milan’s asking price of £30 million for the player, according to Daily Mail. The Londoners aren’t keen on matching the asking price of the Italian outfit.
Rumour rating: 6/10
There is little chance that Milan would let go of a talented forward like Piatek for anything less than the aforementioned amount. As a result, it seems difficult for Spurs to sign the player given that they don’t really have that much money to spend in this window.
