5 transfer around Europe that you might have missed. In the first of a weekly series, 101 is going to bring you five transfers that you might have missed around Europe this week. Come back next Sunday for the next episdoe.
Eldor Shomurodov joins AS Roma It was thought for a long time that Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka would become Roma’s first summer signing, with the Swiss having been reportedly “close” to a move before since the European Championships.
However, that deal has since come undone, with Xhaka now to thought be offered a new contract in north London and return to Mikel Arteta’s midfield.
Whilst it could all be an attempt to make Roma raise their offer, nothing has been forthcoming as of yet.
Meanwhile, however, the Italian club are set to announce the signing of Uzbekistan forward Eldor Shomurodov from fellow Serie A outfit Genoa.
Eldor Shomurodov to AS Roma, done deal and here-we-go. Total agreement with Genoa for â¬20m [add ons included], personal terms agreed as per @DiMarzio. #ASRoma
Bayer Leverkusen will now progress in talks to sign Sardar Azmoun from Zenit as new striker. #Bayer04

The deal, as per transfer market journalist Fabrizio Romano, is set to cost Jose Mourinho’s side 20 million euros, adding to the 10 million euros spent on Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio.
The pair of deals, without significant departures, seemingly makes Roma’s unwillingness to increase their valuation of Granit Xhaka a more permanent issue than a temporary one.
SL Benfica signÂ Roman Yaremchuk Over to Portugal now, and SL Benfica have announced the signing of Ukrainian forward Roman Yaremchuk, with the fee thought to be around the 20 million euro mark once add-ons have been taken into account.

The former Gent forward featured at Euro 2020, scoring twice in five games as Ukraine reached the quarter finals of the tournament. More widely, he is known for his finishing ability, netting times for his former club last season.
Now 25, he as agreed a 5 year deal with the Portuguese giants, which will see him remain in Portugal until 2026, as Benfica confirmed on their site.
A good season at a level above the Belgian League, however, could see bigger clubs come sniffing around the Ukrainian.
Matteo Lovato to Atalanta, Romero to Tottenham The biggest transfer story surrounding Atalanta this summer has been Tottenham’s recent pursuit of Cristian Romero, the Argentinian defender that won the Serie A defender of the year award last campaign.
Cristian Romero hopes to join Tottenham as priority. Heâs pushing directly with the club, thereâs nothing with Barcelona – only Spurs. ⚪️ #THFC
Tottenham want Atalanta to accept their last bid as Romeroâs wish is to join Spurs. Tense situation between clubs, to be resolved soon.

However, have Atalanta quietly gone about sourcing a replacement for the defender, boosting Tottenham’s hopes of signing him in the process?

The Italian club have announced the signing of centre-back Matteo Lovato from fellow Italian side Hellas Verona, in a deal thought to be worth just over 7 million pounds. Only 21, Lovato has racked up just 25 Serie A appearances to date, so could be one for the future. Nonetheless, it all points to a defensive departure.

The 21 year old defender, who impressed for Club Brugge last campaign, has signed a five year deal in Germany, where he will wear the number 6 shirt, previously held by fellow defender Aleksander Dragovic.
With both Sven and Lars Bender announcing their retirement, and Dragovic departing the club, Kossounou could be thrown in at the deep end this campaign, and should Edmond Tapsoba remain next to him, Leverkusen could have one of the most exciting young defensive partnerships in world football.
Myron Boadu signs for Monaco A favourite of football manager players, Myron Boadu is a promising young forward who, at just 20 years old, has already racked up 64 Eredivisie appearances, scoring 32 in the process.

The two clubs had been in talks for weeks over a potential move, but after deadlock, it appears that Monaco have got their man.
Will he be there for long?
