Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer rumours, including Michael Olise to Newcastle United, Orkun Kocku to Leicester City and Nat Phillips to Bournemouth.

Newcastle United are reportedly ready to explore the possibility of signing Crystal Palace attacker Michael Olise during this summer's transfer window.

The 20-year-old arrived at Palace from Reading last July and made 31 appearances for the Eagles during the 2021-22 campaign, contributing four goals and eight assists.

Olise's performances have led to speculation surrounding his future, with a number of clubs said to be showing an interest in the France Under-21s international.

According to NUFC Blog, Newcastle are monitoring the youngster and could potentially make an attempt to sign him before the end of the transfer window.

Meanwhile, according to Football Insider, Bournemouth have opened talks with Liverpool over another loan spell for Nat Phillips.

The 25-year-old impressed for the Cherries in the second half of last season, making 17 Championship appearances, helping the club secure a return to the Premier League.

Bournemouth had allegedly been keen to sign the centre-back on a permanent basis this summer, but according to Football Insider, the defender will again only be allowed to leave on loan.

The report claims that Scott Parker's side are in talks with the Reds over a season-long loan, and the promoted outfit are desperate to secure his signature amid interest from other clubs.

Elsewhere, Leicester City have reportedly started discussions with Feyenoord over a potential deal for Orkun Kokcu during this summer's transfer window.

The midfielder, who has previously been linked with Arsenal, is believed to be looking to leave his Dutch club ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

Kocku was a key player for Feyenoord during the 2021-22 season, featuring on 51 occasions in all competitions, contributing nine goals and nine assists in the process.

According to the Daily Mail, Leicester have opened talks over a possible deal for the 21-year-old, but they will need to offload players first, namely Dennis Praet and Ayoze Perez.

Meanwhile, according to Football Insider, Burnley are exploring the possibility of signing Derby County midfielder Jason Knight before the end of the transfer window.

The report claims that new Clarets boss Vincent Kompany is a huge admirer of the 21-year-old and has made his signing a priority in the current market.

Knight is expected to leave Derby following their relegation to League One, with a number of clubs said to be keen to secure his signature in the coming weeks.

The midfielder, who still has another 12 months left to run on his contract at Pride Park, scored twice and provided three assists in 38 Championship appearances last term.
