Transfer the news LIVE! Chelsea FC aim for huge double deal; Paqueta prefers Tottenham to Arsenal; latest gossip

Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea continue to work hard on comings and goings as the new Premier League season approaches. Thomas Tuchel is working on a shortlist of centre-backs with Jules Kounde set at Barcelona, ​​but new target Wesley Fofana from Leicester and Presnel Kimpembe from PSG are unlikely to join. Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries and Milan Skriniar have been linked to a double deal instead.

At Arsenal, James Maddison continues to be linked with a move, a deal which could see Fulham target Bernd Leno moving the other way, but Lucas Paqueta would rather join Spurs than their north London rivals. Mikel Arteta’s side have been linked with PSV star Cody Gakpo, while Nuno Tavares is set to join Marseille on loan.

If Spurs choose not to move for Paqueta, having failed with a January offer, then Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo looks the likeliest option if Antonio Conte pushes for another big signing. Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo is losing hope of leaving Manchester United in search of Champions League football. Follow all the latest transfer news, gossip and rumors below!
