The summer transfer window is approaching fast and while the dates for the window have not been announced yet, the Premier League is slated to finish on Sunday, May 23 which may imply that the transfer window is most likely to reopen on Monday, June 1.

Top clubs across Europe are still looking to boost their squad ahead of the new season, and clear out their wage bill as well. With that in mind, here's a look at the latest transfer rumours from around the world.

Aguero considers Tottenham switch

Sergio Aguero is reportedly considering a move to Tottenham in the summer once he leaves Manchester City at the end of the season.

Aguero is out of contract when the current campaign ends, and reportedly wants to continue playing in the Premier League. And now, according to The Telegraph, the Argentine is considering a switch to north London.

Chelsea eye Lukaku swoop

Chelsea have reportedly set their sights on a possible summer swoop for Inter striker Romelu Lukaku, according to Calcio Mercato.

The Blues will look to sign Lukaku if they fail to bring in Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. However, Inter do not want to part with the Belgian, but Chelsea's willingness to pay over €100 million to acquire a new centre forward might force Antonio Conte's side to sell their star striker.

Zidane hints at Juve return

Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane has hinted at a return to Juventus, but this time in the capacity of a manager following the poor performance of Andrea Pirlo in his debut campaign in the hot seat at Turin.

Speaking after Madrid's 3-1 win over Liverpool last night, Zidane admitted that Italy still holds some appeal for him. "Do I miss more Italy or Del Piero? At both, Italy is in my heart, I spent five years in Turin and Juventus is still important to me," Zidane told Sky Sport Italia. "Future at Juve? I don't know. For now I'm here, we'll see," the 1998 World Cup winner added with a smile.

City waiting to move for Messi

Manchester City are reportedly set to make a play for Lionel Messi if he decides to leave Barcelona at the end of the current season.

According to Marca, Pep Guardiola's side are waiting to hear Messi's decision and will not step forward as a potential suitor until he decides he wants to leave Barcelona. Meanwhile, Mundo Deportivo claim Messi is waiting to have a sit down with new Barcelona president Joan Laporta over a new deal, and could be willing to take a paycut to continue his stay at Camp Nou.
