JOE’s 5-Word Transfers: Hazard, Ivanovic, Wanyama, Nainggolan, Clasie

Liverpool look to seal Nainggolan deal.

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan could be on his way to Anfield this summer, the Metro say.

Brendan Rodgers is looking to seal a £29m deal for the 26-year-old as the Italian side apparently can’t afford a permanent move for the Belgian international, who is co-owned by Cagliari.

He has previously said he is 50 per cent likely to leave Roma. Let’s hope Rodgers is a gambling man, because this is a real finish…

Madrid eyeing up Hazard

Eden Hazard has been an absolute revelation at Chelsea this season, so it was inevitable Real Madrid would come sniffing around.

He’s the favourite to win the PFA Player of the Year award, but the Belgian hotshot has another big admirer in Zinedine Zidane.

The former Galactico, who is reserve coach at the Champions League holders, puts Hazard in the same bracket as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the Mirror report.

The French World Cup hero hinted that he could be at the top of Madrid’s summer wish list.

But the Daily Telegraph say the playmaker will stay at Chelsea despite interest from Spain.

Bayern want Chelsea full-back

Branislav Ivanovic is a wanted man.

The Daily Express claim Bayern Munich are ready to bid for the 31-year-old Chelsea defender, who has chipped in with some important goals for his club this season.

But Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping tabs on the Serbian, who has one year left on his Stamford Bridge deal.

Surely Jose won’t let him leave?
