While the Premier League is now in full swing, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea all remain active in this summer’s transfer market. At Arsenal, Mikel Arteta has hinted he is not done yet in the window with a Youri Tielemans bid in the works.
Yeremy Pino is another target but Chelsea have been named as keen on the winger. Thomas Tuchel is understood to be desperate to add to his squad, with a £45m bid Everton’s Anthony Gordon rejected. Frenkie de Jong and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remain options as a move for Cesare Casadei nears completion.
Spurs, meanwhile, have been frustrated in their attempts to sign Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo and could turn to James Garner as a surprise alternative, while Destiny Udogie is now officially a Tottenham player. Elsewhere, Antonio Conte’s clear-out also continues at a pace. Follow all the latest transfer news, gossip and rumours below!
Arsenal WILL make Tielemans bid
Arsenal’s move for Youri Tielemans will take place this month, despite reports of the club being ready to wait for his contract to expire.
Transfer journalist Dean Jones has claimed that a bid is in the works and will be launched when two “outstanding issues” are dealt with.
Those are likely to be player sales with Hector Bellerin, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Nicolas Pepe all linked with moves away.
Leicester will expect around £32m for Tielemans should Arsenal finally make an official offer.
Chelsea want Pino
We knew that Arsenal target Yeremy Pino was also wanted by Liverpool and at least one other Premier League club.
That team has been revealed by Fabrizio Romano as Chelsea.
An offer of around £42million is thought to be enough for a prospective bidder to land the Spain international.
Garner catches Paratici’s eye
Fabio Paratici noticed new Tottenham target James Garner while scouting Djed Spence.
Football.London report on Spurs chasing the midfielder after he was put up for sale by Manchester United for £15million.
An immediate loan move to a fellow Premier League club has been mooted for Garner, if he arrives at Tottenham this summer.
Chelsea plan future Aubameyang talks
Chelsea will step up talks to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this weel, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The Barcelona striker is opening to returning to the Premier League, but will not push for a move.
Barca want £25m to sell the player they signed for nothing eight months ago.
Palace want Sarr
Crystal Palace are in talks with Watford over signing Ismaila Sarr from Watford, The Athletic reports.
Discussions have been ongoing for a few weeks but no official offer has been submitted by Palace, who failed in a bid to sign the player two years ago.
Palace are determined to sign Sarr before the window closes on September 1, and could face rival interest.
United told Caicedo is not for sale
Manchester United have been told that Moises Caicedo is not for sale.
The Brighton midfielder is one of a number of players being targeted by United boss Erik ten Hag.
But talkSPORT claim that the Seagull will not entertain a sale having already lost Yves Bissouma this summer.
Chelsea rival Arsenal for Pino
Chelsea are ready to rival Arsenal for Villarreal winger Yeremi Pino, claims Fabrizio Romano.
The Gunners have reportedly identified Pino as their latest attacking target after missing out on Raphinha.
Raphinha snubbed Arsenal for Chelsea, and then snubbed Chelsea for Barcelona.
The 19-year-old is attracting plenty of interest but it is the two London clubs reportedly leading the race.
Spurs lead race to sign Malinovskyi
Tottenham are now leading the race to sign Ruslan Malinovskyi from Atalanta.
TuttoAtalanta claims Spurs are looking into a loan deal for the Ukraine international, which may including an obligation to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
Malinvoskyi would be open to the move, should Spurs make an offer, while the club would prefer to raise funds with a sale.
Gordon wants Chelsea move
Anthony Gordon wants to leave Everton to join Chelsea, claims the Telegraph.
Chelsea have failed with a £45million bid for the 21-year-old, who is also wanted by Tottenham and Newcastle.
A fresh offer is expected, with the Toffees looking for more than £50m to even consider a sale.
Udogie’s first words
Destiny Udogie has told Tottenham fans what they can expect from him next season.
“It’s a big honour for me to be here, with this big team, a big club with a big history,” he told the club’s in-house medal.
“I can attack and defend. I like to show my quality to attack one v one, dribble… It’s an honour to play under a big coach like Antonio Conte. He knows football very well and I’m going to grow a lot.
“I think the Premier League is the biggest league in the world, the most difficult and I like challenges. I’m excited to start and, for me, to play for a big team like Tottenham is a big dream come true.
“I want to grow as much as I can, to understand the game a little bit more and obviously play my best season I can in Serie A.”
