Transfer news LIVE! Arsenal submit formal Raphinha bid; Tottenham’s Bastoni blow; Chelsea agree Lukaku deal

Transfer news LIVE! Arsenal agree £45m Jesus deal; Chelsea focus on Sterling; Raphinha to Tottenham rumours

Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea are all playing leading roles as the transfer window heats up ahead of pre-season.

The Gunners have reportedly reached an agreement with Manchester City to sign Gabriel Jesus, as that moved nears completion. Spurs have already been one of the busiest clubs in the transfer window thus far and could yet add one of Richarlison or Raphinha to their list of recruits, though Leeds may be even more unwilling to sell with Kalvin Phillips on his way to Manchester City. Tottenham’s attempts to bring Djed Spence to north London continue to make little progress.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are yet to make a men’s first-team signing but fresh reports claim Todd Boehly has promised manager Thomas Tuchel SIX new additions as they chase Matthijs De Ligt and top target Raheem Sterling. Arrivals are expected at both ends of the pitch. Follow all the latest news with our LIVE blog below.

Ajax push for Bergwijn

Ajax are prepared to break their transfer record to sign Steven Bergwijn from Tottenham, writes Giuseppe Muro.

Bergwijn has been told he can leave Spurs this summer and Sebastien Haller’s transfer to Borussia Dortmund will help Ajax fund a move for the Dutch international.

Ajax’s current transfer record is the £20.25million they paid West Ham for Haller in January 2021. But the Dutch giants are ready to spend more than that to land Bergwijn.

Ajax want Bergwijn to form part of a new-look attack next season and are expected to step up their pursuit of the 24-year-old after agreeing to sell Haller. Tottenham paid £27m for Bergwijn in January 2020.

Phillips set to make Man City move

Manchester City have agreed a fee of around £42m for Leeds and England star Kalvin Phillips, reports The Athletic.

In a separate deal, Darko Gyabi will go the other way for a fee in the region of £5million.

West Ham had tried to sign the player in January but saw a £50m offer snubbed and now the Premier League champions look to be closing in.

Arsenal reach Jesus agreement

Arsenal are now believed to have reached an agreement with Manchester City to sign Gabriel Jesus.

The Brazilian has been a top target for Mikel Arteta this window, who is desperate to add a striker to the squad following the departures of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the last six months.

Tottenham and Chelsea have also been linked with Jesus in recent weeks, with boths club able to offer Champions League football.

But it’s become apparent that the Gunners have been front-runners in the race to sign the Brazilian and The Athletic reports that Arsenal and City have reached a deal over a £45million move.

Liverpool business done, says McManaman

Steve McManaman is not expected any further additions to his former club Liverpool’s squad in the coming weeks.

“I don’t believe Liverpool need to make more signings this summer,” McManaman said via the Liverpool Echo.

“Where would you put them? They’ve made three signings already this summer.

“They’ve brought in Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay, who are two players for the future and they’ve also brought in Darwin Núñez, who’s another player for the future to a certain extent but has cost them a lot of money.

“Players will have to leave as there isn’t enough space to fit everybody in. Keeping the players happy now is as hard a job as it is to jam all of these players into the team.”


Barcelona in for Koulibaly

Every club appears to be interested in the same few players this window!

Barcelona are keen on Chelsea target Jules Kounde, but are considering turning their attentions to Kalidou Koulibaly instead if they cannot land the Sevilla defender, according to Diario Sports.

Koulibaly is seen as a cheaper and more realistic target, considering Barcelona’s financial woes.

Raphinha deal now more difficult?

Could Kalvin Phillips’ imminent move to Manchester City have an impact on Leeds selling Raphinha?

There’s certainly no need for Leeds to sell the Brazilian, with City buying Phillips for £42million.

With Chelsea likely focusing on Raheem Sterling, it looks to be a straight race between Arsenal and Tottenham for Raphinha – but any hopes of driving the price down seem to have ended.

Chelsea focus on Sterling

Chelsea still see Raheem Sterling as their top priority in the transfer window.

Fabrizio Romano reports that although the Blues have shown interest in Raphinha, it’s Sterling who they really want to bring to Stamford Bridge.

He has just 12 months remaining on his Manchester City contract and it’s believed Pep Guardiola is willing to sell the Englishman.

Tottenham told Zaniolo fee

Roma have been told to cash in on Nicolo Zaniolo should a bid worth €50million (£42m) come in for the midfielder amid links with Tottenham.

Reports in Italy claim Spurs manager director Fabio Paratici is looking into bringing the 22-year-old to the Premier League.

Former Roma striker Roberto Pruzzo told Il Messaggero: “If someone’s willing to spend €50 million on Zaniolo, I’ll think about it. But then, you’d need to find somebody who scores more than him.”

Kompany looking for quick additions

Vincent Kompany is hoping to add to his Burnley squad as quickly as possible after taking charge.

James Tarkowski and Nick Pope are just two players to leave the Clarets after their relegation, and Kompany revealed there will be some replacements arriving in the near future.

“We’re close to bringing in a few players but until the medicals have been finalised and contracts are signed, there’s nobody we’re brining in officially today,” Kompany said at his first press conference.

“In general, we’ve been close to players and set up a few medicals, and hopefully in the next 24 or 48 hours we can start making the first announcements.”
