The winter transfer window is closed, but now it's time to look ahead to the summer! Here are the new rumours floating around Europe's big leagues and beyond.

TOP STORY: Godin to Tottenham or Manchester United?

Inter Milan defender Diego Godin is set to swap life at the San Siro for a stint in the Premier League, reports Tuttosport.

The 34-year-old veteran made the jump over to Milan from Atletico Madrid last summer, but since then, he hasn't been able to find a consistent spot in their starting XI. With that being the case, the door is now open for top clubs around the world to act on their interest.

Tottenham and Manchester United are at the top of that list, with Godin expected to land at one of the two in the next few months.

And with the Dutch youth international having just a year remaining on his contract in Amsterdam, Pep Guardiola's side could get him for a meagre £6m.

21.15 BST: Corriere dello Sport writes that Roma's lack of Champions League football and the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic has put the club in a period of financial suffering, and will now look to cut €40m from their wage bill by offloading (by any means necessary) the likes of Javier Pastore, Steven Nzonzi, Maxime Gonalons, Rick Karsdorp, Robin Olsen, Diego Perotti, Federico Fazio and Juan Jesus.

19.58 BST: Juventus believe that Fiorentina attacker Federico Chiesa could be one of the pillars of the club's rejuvenation project, and according to Corriere dello Sport, are in "continuous" communication with the 22-year-old Italy international.

Mundo Deportivo says that United are keen to pay Partey's €50m release clause to eventually replace Nemanja Matic in midfield.

15.30 BST: Subliminal suggestions that Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho is on his way to Man United.

14.50 BST: Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas says he hopes that Memphis Depay will stay with Lyon beyond this season -- whenever it ends.

The Netherlands international was in a race against time to return to fitness ahead of Euro 2020 before the coronavirus outbreak put world football on pause.

Now with no Euro 2020 for Depay to rush back for, the 26-year-old can recover in his own time and Aulas appeared to open the door to a contract extension.

"I really hope that he stays with OL for a long time," said Aulas in reply to the #MemphisStayInLyon campaign. "I really do everything for that. Memphis knows what I do it for. I trust Memphis."

11.19 BST: Ivan Rakitic has said he's not a "sack of potatoes" that Barcelona can do whatever they want with, and stressed his desire to finish the contract he has with the club, which runs until 2021.

Sources have told ESPN that Rakitic is one of the players Barca want to cash in on this summer. The Spanish champions had already planned a fire sale to fund moves for Neymar and Lautaro Martinez, but the expected financial repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic will accelerate the need to bring money in.

L'Equipe claims that Mourinho is keen to mend his damaged relationship with the France international after a number of criticisms since he replaced Mauricio Pochettino last November.

10.32 BST: Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is keen to bring in an alternative to Casemiro, reports Diario AS, with Eduardo Camavinga, N'Golo Kante and Boubakary Soumare all potential targets.

Casemiro is the only natural defensive midfielder at Zidane's disposal, with neither Fede Valverde nor Toni Kroos feeling comfortable in the role.

The Brazilian has played the most minutes of any Real Madrid player this season.

AS claims that three French options -- 17-year-old Camavinga of Rennes, Chelsea's Kante and Lille's Soumare -- are all being examined at the Bernabeu.

The newspaper admits there will be serious competition for Camavinga's signature, while Kante's high salary and Chelsea contract until 2023 would be major obstacles to a move.

Kane, 26, is committed to the club where he graduated through the youth ranks until 2024, having signed a six-year deal in 2018.

08.43 BST: Achraf Hakimi has said he's yet to discuss his Real Madrid future amid interest from a number of top clubs in the on-loan Borussia Dortmund player.

The 21-year-old full back is due to return to the Bernabeu in June when his two-year Bundesliga loan spell ends.

"My agent looks after it, I'm not really focused on it," he told El Larguero when asked whether his contract expires in 2022. "I think it's around there but I don't know exactly how many years I have left. There's been no change."

Hakimi has been linked to the Premier League with reported interest from Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, as well as Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

"Who wouldn't like to have various offers and teams interested in him?" he said. "I'm proud of what I'm doing and I'm really happy.

"But even me as a person cannot start talking about a contract when you don't know when you're going to resume. I've been around the club for a few months and everything is working perfectly well for me and the team is going fantastically. We'll see how it goes."

Juventus want new world-class forward

Juventus are interested in signing a top new striker, Calciomercato reports, with Man City's Gabriel Jesus and Mauro Icardi, who is on loan at PSG from Inter, at the top of the Old Lady's list.

The Italian champions are considered to be one of the best sides in European football, but even with that being the case, they're still clearly invested in the idea of signing a new goal scorer.

The future of Gonzalo Higuain is unknown, and with Cristiano Ronaldo wanting a younger strike partner, the two names that have been mentioned are Icardi and Jesus.

Alas, Juve first need to wait to see whether or not the summer transfer window will even take place as the world deals with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
