Transfer the news LIVE! £70m Fofana a Chelsea FC target, Arsenal hatch Tielemans plan; Koundé last

Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea continue to be among the most active clubs in Europe in this summer’s transfer window. With Thomas Tuchel at risk of losing another target – namely Jules Kounde – to Barcelona after being snubbed by Raphinha, the Blues boss is ready to move on to another defensive big name. Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana is believed to have emerged as a serious option for the club and could arrive in a double deal amid interest in Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries.

At Arsenal, Cody Gakpo continues to be linked with a move to the Emirates. Mikel Arteta was another manager turned down by Raphinha and has not since added to his wide options, with the PSV Eindhoven star believed to be on the club’s radar.

Meanwhile, there’s only one big name linked with Tottenham after their big summer spending. Indeed, Spurs have reportedly edged out Juventus in the race to sign Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo as Antoni Conte eyes another big signing. Follow all the latest news, gossip and rumors below!
