Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham all remain on the hunt for key new signings as we inch ever closer to the summer transfer deadline. Arsenal are chasing Villarreal youngster Yeremy Pino, with a move for Youri Tielemans looking increasingly unlikely ahead of the September 1 deadline. The Gunners could choose to try and sign the Belgian for free next summer.
Chelsea are one of the busiest clubs in Europe with Anthony Gordon reportedly a top target. Frenkie de Jong is said to prefer a move to Stamford Bridge over Manchester United in a huge boost for Thomas Tuchel. They also saw an initial offer rejected by Barcelona for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the Blues are expected to make a new game for Leicester’s Wesley Fofana this week.
Destiny Udogie is set to undergo a medical at Tottenham after being left out of Udinese’s last squad, but links with Nicolo Zaniolo have cooled. Manchester United, meanwhile, are pushing to sign Adrien Rabiot after being hampered by Brentford and could also swoop in for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Mauro Icardi, among others.
Deal done! Lo Celso to Villarreal
Spotted: Edu flies to Spain
A classic piece of the transfer window rumor here…
Arsenal technical director Edu reportedly flew to Valencia today to see Yeremy Pino in action as his Villarreal side are in action this weekend.
The problem? The Yellow Submarine played yesterday in Valladolid…
Maybe he watches Valencia vs Girona instead. Ramon Terrats, anyone?
Chelsea considering Gordon deal
Chelsea could offer £50million to test Everton’s resolve against Anthony Gordon.
The young playmaker would be interesting, according to The Times, with a player-plus-cash deal in sight with Armando Broja and Michy Batshuayi.
Everton do not want Ross Barkley back and have already rejected a £35million offer from Newcastle for their academy product.
PSG offers near Naples
Fabian Ruiz won’t feature for Napoli as they open their Serie A campaign against Hellas Verona this weekend.
Talks over a move to PSG are advanced, according to Fabrizio Romano, while talks continue over Les Parisiens goalkeeper Keylor Navas going in the opposite direction.
The deal would end a potential move to the Italians for Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa.
Talks between Casadei and Chelsea resume
Chelsea have a clear path ahead of them to sign Cesare Casadei.
Inter Milan will resume talks with the Blues on Tuesday for the teenage midfielder, Corriere dello Sport say.
Rival interest from Nice and Sassuolo have reportedly been blocked by Inter.
Bellerin back at Barça?
Hector Bellerin wants a return to Barcelona.
The Arsenal defender was hoping to seal a second spell at boyhood club Real Betis but his £100,000 weekly wage has delayed the deal.
Therefore, Mundo Deportivo report that a return to Barcelona would be favored by Bellerin – if they can afford his salary.
Man United drop Ronaldo threat
Cristiano Ronaldo could see his contract TERMINATED by Manchester United.
With the veteran striker keen to leave Old Trafford, the Red Devils hierarchy are ready to tear up his contract after two defeats to open the season.
Sky Sports report that Ronaldo must revise his ideas and improve his attitude or find himself without a club for the first time in his career…
Chelsea agree to Fofana’s terms
The Mail’s report of Chelsea agreeing personal terms with Wesley Fofana amid talks of an £80m deal.
After bids of £60m and £65m were rejected, the Leicester defender is set for a £200,000-a-week deal if he moves to Stamford Bridge.
It only remains for the clubs to agree on a transfer fee…
Pino excites Arsenal fans
A superb display from Yeremy Pino in Villarreal’s 3-0 win at Valladolid yesterday has Arsenal fans excited to hope the Spanish winger makes a move to north London.
Valued at around £40m, the teenager received a 9/10 from Spanish newspaper AS for his performance.
They wrote: “He played a key role in resolving the game with a superb assist for [Nicolas] Jackson after haggling his marker. Previously, he shot on goal, which the goalkeeper saved, and set up countless dribbles with which he generated advantages.
