​Despite there being still two months of the 2018/19 season remaining, that hasn't stopped the transfer rumour mill running as normal ahead of what is likely to be another busy summer for clubs around the globe. 


With today no different, here are the latest transfer rumours in the world of football:


Gent Hoping to Retain Crystal Palace's Alexander Sorloth Beyond Current Loan Spell

SOCCER JPL D22 KAA GENT VS RSC ANDERLECHT

Alexander Sorloth didn't exactly set the world alight following his £10m move to ​Crystal Palace from FC Midtjylland in January 2018, netting just once in 20 games for the Eagles, 

before a loan move to KAA Gent a year later.


Since his move to Belgium, the 23-year-old has three goals in nine league games, with media outlet ​Het Laatste Nieuws reporting that Gent want to make the deal permanent at the end of the season, although suggests that doing so is 'not a simple task'. 


That is mainly due to Palace wanting to recoup the majority of the £10m they spent on the Norwegian, which could complicate a deal that would appear to suit all parties.


Watford Set to Advance Payment of Joao Pedro Due to Fluminense's Financial Issues​

Watford v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

Having already agreed a payment plan with Fluminense for the signing of Joao Pedro, ​Watford have been asked by the Brazilian club to forward one of those payments due to their financial issues.


The Hornets signed Pedro earlier in the season, with the two parties agreeing a payment plan for the 17-year-old, who will only join the club in January 2020, although Brazilian outlet ​Extra have reported that the club's president, Pedro Abad, is flying to Europe to meet investors that can provide the club with £40m to settle there debts, with one of those meetings being with Waford to ask for an advance. 


The young forward is set to be the second player to make the switch from Fluminense to Watford, after Richarlison did likewise in the summer of 2018. 


Liverpool & Newcastle Among Pack Chasing Middlesbrough Youngster

Middlesbrough v Manchester City - Premier League

After making his first-team debut for Middlesbrough in the EFL Cup earlier this season, Bilal Brahimi has been linked with a move away from the Riverside Stadium.


Boro appear to have failed to agree a new deal for the 19-year-old, according to TEAMtalk, which has opened for the door for Premier League duo Liverpool and Newcastle United to try and sign the versatile winger.


The pair however could be set to miss out on the France Under-19 international, with Ligue 1 side Rennes, who were recently knocked out of the Europa League by Arsenal, rumoured to be the front-runners for his signature. 


Brentford Place £30m Price-Tag on Said Benrahama Amid Premier League Interest

​Said Benrahama has had an outstanding season for Championship side ​Brentford, netting nine goals and providing 11 assists, with his form not going unnoticed by sides in the Premier League.


According to reports from ​TEAMtalk, as many as four sides in England's top-flight are being linked with the 23-year-old, with ​Arsenal​Crystal Palace​Tottenham and ​West Ham all interested in the Algerian international who only joined the Bees in the summer. 


There's also interest for Benrahma outside of England, with Bundesliga giants ​Borussia Dortmund and Serie A side ​Milan also keeping tabs on a player being priced at £30m; considerably more the £1.5m they paid OGC Nice for his services prior to this season.


Mason Mount Summer Loan Target for Bournemouth

After impressing for Frank Lampard's ​Derby County side on loan in the ​Championship this season, who are just one point outside the play-off places, ​Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is likely to be one youngster commanding plenty of interest in the summer.


One of those potential suitors is set to be ​Bournemouth, as reported by ​The Sun, with the media outlet claiming that Eddie Howe wants to bring the 20-year-old, who has six goals and three assists this season - on loan to the Vitality Stadium for 2018/19 campaign to provide him with regular ​Premier League football. 


What could scupper a deal for the Cherries, however, is a potential transfer ban for the Blues, which may provide more opportunities for England Under-21 international at Stamford Bridge.


Man Utd Consider Loaning Out Andreas Pereira So He Commits Long-Term Future at Old Trafford

FBL-EUR-C1-PSG-MAN UTD

Despite being restored to the first-team picture at ​Manchester United by interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Andreas Pereira is still keen to leave Old Trafford this summer.


That is according to ​The Sun, as Pereria, who r​ecently extended his current contract with the Red Devils until 2020, wants more first-team action that he believes he will get away from the club, with Leicester City leading the chase for a midfielder that Brendan Rodgers rates very highly. 


It's reported that United would be willing to let the Brazilian leave Old Trafford on loan if it means he is more liking to sign a new four-year contract with the club as a result.
