Sports Mole rounds up some of the latest transfer rumours, including the latest on Manchester City's Nathan Ake and Premier League interest in Watford's Emmanuel Dennis.

Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are reportedly considering rivalling Chelsea for the signature of Manchester City centre-back Nathan Ake during this summer's transfer window.

The Netherlands international's future at Etihad Stadium is currently being called into question, with Chelsea said to be keen to bring him back to Stamford Bridge in the current market.

However, according to 90min, Tottenham and West Ham are also admirers of the 27-year-old, with the London pair considering rivalling the Blues for his signature this summer.

Ake made 27 appearances for Man City during the 2021-22 campaign but just 14 of those outings were in the Premier League, and he is down the pecking order for the starting roles at the back.

Meanwhile, according to Sky Sports News, two unnamed Premier League clubs are interested in signing Watford attacker Emmanuel Dennis this summer.

The 24-year-old was in impressive form for the Hornets during the 2021-22 campaign, finding the back of the net on 10 occasions in 33 Premier League appearances, in addition to contributing six assists.

Two unnamed Premier League clubs are allegedly keen on his services, with Everton thought to view him as a potential alternative to Richarlison, who has joined Tottenham.

Dennis is said to be keen to leave Watford following their relegation to the Championship, but the Nigeria international still has four years left to run on his contract.

Morgan Gibbs-White's future at Wolverhampton Wanderers has also been the subject of speculation, with the 22-year-old spending the 2021-22 season on loan at Sheffield United in the Championship.

The attacker scored 11 times and registered nine assists in 35 Championship appearances last term, and a number of clubs are thought to be interested in his signature.

However, according to the Express & Star, Wolves are yet to receive a bid for Gibbs-White and are expecting him to be a part of their squad for next term.

Nottingham Forest are said to be keen on the attacker, but it would allegedly take 'a substantial fee' for his current side to let him leave ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

Meanwhile, according to journalist Michele Giannone, Los Angeles FC are not interested in signing Luis Suarez this summer despite the recent speculation.

The 35-year-old, who has also been linked with Aston Villa, has now officially become a free agent, with his contract at Atletico Madrid expiring at the end of June.

LAFC, who have recently signed Gareth Bale, have been linked with the centre-forward, but according to Giannone, the MLS outfit are not considering bringing him to North America.

Suarez scored 13 goals and registered three assists in 45 appearances for Diego Simeone's side last term, including 11 goals and three assists in 35 La Liga outings.
