Chelsea eye Moriba
Chelsea have become the latest European club to be linked with a move for Barcelona youngster Ilaix Moriba.
The 18-year-old has turned down a new contract at the Nou Camp and Barca are reportedly willing to sell up for as little as £17m this summer as they look to ease their financial troubles.
According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, that has proved enough to peak Chelsea’s interest, with the publication claiming they have already made an approach.
Hello and welcome back to Standard Sport’s LIVE coverage of this summer’s transfer window.
We’ll start the day with a fresh round-up of all the latest news and gossip…
Pobga staying put
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Paul Pogba will still be a Manchester United player when the transfer window closes.
Solskjaer said: “Yes, I expect Paul to be here when the first of September comes.
“If you’ve got a five-year contract or a one-year contract, when you sign for Man United you have to rise to the challenge of performing on a consistent level.
“I’m not worried whatsoever that the length of any player’s contract is changing the level of their motivation and inspiration.
“You want to play well for your team, your team-mates, yourself, your family, every time you play. What I expect is that the attitude and the approach to every game is the right one.
“That we have the same focus, the right focus, the right professionalism and. With that, I have no worries about Paul whatsoever.”
Noble heading upstairs?
Mark Noble could be set for a role as sporting director at West Ham once he hangs up his boots.
The 34-year-old midfielder is in his final season as a Hammers player after 17 years at the club.
It was widely assumed Noble would move into coaching when his playing career came to an end.
But manager David Moyes revealed: “I think Mark has other ideas, maybe a role as a sporting director or a technical director rather than on the footballing side.
“We’re already starting to use Mark in other roles behind the scenes.”
Fiorentina rule out Vlahovic sale
Atletico Madrid looked to be closing in on the signing of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, who has been linked with Tottenham.
However, reports in Italy suggest Fiorentina have rejected a bid worth €60m and Atleti will now turn their attentions to Matheus Cunha of Hertha Berlin.
Salah in new contract talks
Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool are in talks with Mo Salah over a new contract.
“There are talks and when there is a decision we will tell you,” he said.
“Until then it is only important how the parties work together. With two years left you can imagine there are talks and that is it.”
Sarr set for Spurs medical
Pape Matar Sarr will undergo a medical in France to complete a move to Tottenham, Football Insider reports.
The 18-year-old wonderkid has agreed a six-year deal with Spurs, but will spend the first season of that back on loan at Metz.
Kane travels with Spurs squad
Another twist in the Harry Kane tale.

Inter close in on Thuram
Inter Milan have started their defence of Serie A with a win and are now closing in on new attacking talent.
Sky in Italy report Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram has been lined up for a move to the San Siro, though Inter are currently €5m short of the €25m price tag.

Rice frustrated at West Ham
Declan Rice is unhappy with West Ham’s £100m price tag for him and is prepared to run down his contract to force a move if necessary, reports the Telegraph.
Rice feels he has been priced him out of a move to a Champions League club and will not sign any extension to his contract, which still has three years to run.
