Transfer the news LIVE! Paqueta chooses Tottenham over Arsenal; Chelsea FC struck a double blow; Ronaldo last; 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. Also of interest is Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries with Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick.

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 has been linked with a ‘mystery winger’, who could be PSV star Cody Gakpo.

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. Follow all the latest transfer news, gossip and rumors below!
