    TIEM WILL TELL

    Chelsea star Tiemoue Bakayoko is in talks with AC Milan over a permanent move, according to reports.

    The 27-year-old hasn't played for the Blues in three years after spending time on loan at Milan, Monaco and Napoli.

    According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Milan and Chelsea are discussing the transfer of Bakayoko.

    The French midfielder, who has one year left on his contract, is reportedly allowed to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

    There's a good chance Bakayoko will agree another one-year loan, seeing the player leave on a free in 12 months' time.

    LOSING THE WILL

    EXCLUSIVE: Crystal Palace have had a £5million bid for Will Hughes turned down by Watford.

    Eagles boss Patrick Vieira is still keen on the midfielder.

    But the Selhurst Park club are insisting they will not offer a penny more.

    Hughes, 26, has refused to sign a fresh-two year deal at Vicarage Road.

    And now he is currently training with the Under-23s following his contract snub.

    Hughes has entered the final year of his deal and could walk away for next nothing at the end of the campaign.

    AND AWAY WE GO

    Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is close to agreeing a move to Brazilian side Flamengo.

    That’s according to Globo Esporte, who claim United have sent “positive signals” regarding a one year loan deal.

    The 25-year-old has been linked with a permanent move away from Old Trafford, with Lazio said to be interested in bringing him back to the Serie A after a loan spell last season.

    Everton and Fenerbahce were also interested, but the player is said to prefer a move to Brazil.

    PREM DIG

    Bayern Munich manager Julien Nagalsmann has slammed Premier League clubs for their spending this window.

    It follows Jack Grealish’s £100million move to Manchester City and Romelu Lukaku’s £97.5million move to Chelsea.

    Meanwhile Manchester United have spent £73million on Jadon Sancho and an initial £34million on Raphael Varane that could rise to £42million with add-ons.

    Arsenal have also spent a combined £78million on Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares.

    And Nagelsmann has aimed a dig at Premier League clubs for their spending in what was supposed to be a low-key window following financial difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

    When asked whether Bayern would make any more signings, he said: “It is not easy to spend loads of money, we are not in the Premier League.

    “If it is possible then, perhaps, we will get in a new player. If not, it’s okay as well and we will work with the players that we have in our squad.”

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    SunSport can exclusively reveal that Harry Kane expects a breakthrough in his potential move to Manchester City before the weekend. 

    Spurs are now resigned to losing the striker with a deal seemingly just days away. 

    City are understood to be readying a second offer of £120million for the England captain after failing with a £100m bid earlier in the summer.

    Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal for Martin Odegaard – this time on a permanent deal. 

    That’s according to David Ornstein, who reports that the 23-year-old could even feature this weekend against Chelsea.

    A deal worth £29million is said to have been agreed between the clubs, but there is still a substantial amount of paperwork left to be finalised.

    Wolves are in advanced talks to sign Olympiacos defender Ruben Semedo, who was handed a five-year suspended prison term and banned from visiting Spain for eight years in July 2020.

    That’s after he confessed to robbery, assault, kidnapping and possession of a firearm.

    However, SunSport understands that Wolves are still interested in a one-year loan deal with an option to buy.

    It will need confirmation from the Home Office and Spanish authorities for a deal to be given the green light, though.

    And finally Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed speculation linking him with a return to Real Madrid as 'disrespectful'.

    PSG have also been linked with a sensational move for Ronaldo that would see him link up with Lionel Messi.

    But in a long Instagram post, the former Manchester United man has shot down talk of leaving Turin a year before his deal expires.

    ODEGAARD-EAL

    Arsenal are closing in on a deal for Martin Odegaard.

    That's according to David Ornstein, who reports that the 23-year-old could even feature THIS WEEKEND against Chelsea.

    A deal worth £29million is said to have been agreed between the clubs, but there is still a substantial amount of paperwork left to be finalised.

    Odegaard's agent was reportedly in London today to discuss a deal, and it seems as though talks have progressed well.

    He will rejoin the Gunners after scoring two goals in 20 games for Arsenal in a loan spell during the second half of last season.

    AOUAR ON FOR ARSENAL

    Long-term Arsenal target Houssem Aouar is still an option for the Gunners.

    That’s according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who revealed Arsenal’s interest in the 23-year-old is still there.

    But now Spurs are also interested in the Lyon midfielder, who is said to be available for just £17-21million.

    And Romano told the Arsenal Lounge Podcast: “It is a completely different situation when they wanted the player last summer, but it was not easy to find an agreement with the player and Lyon at the end of the window.

    “But now he could still be an opportunity for Arsenal and for Tottenham. They are both in contact with his agent.

    “So, they are still looking at the situation, and if Lyon gives the green light in the coming days, he could become an option for Arsenal too.”

    DONE DEAL

    Premier League new boys Brentford have signed Spanish goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez on an initial season long loan deal.

    The 23-year-old was part of Spain's silver medal winning squad at Tokyo 2020 and joins on a temporary deal with the option to buy.

    He links up with the Bees from Spanish side Huesca and will provide competition with David Raya for the number one jersey.

    SUNSPORT EXCLUSIVE

    Crystal Palace have had a £5million bid for Will Hughes turned down by Watford, CHARLIE WYETT reports.

    But Palace, although keen on the midfielder, are insisting they will not offer a penny more.

    Hughes, 26, is currently training with the under-23s at Watford as he has refused to sign a fresh-two year deal.

    He is now in the final year of his contract but Watford still believe he is worth more than what Palace have offered.

    But it looks likely that Hughes, who insisted he was happy at Vicarage Road last season, will end up moving before the transfer window closes.

    Hughes joined four years ago in a £5m deal from Derby, who have a 15per cent sell-on clause.

    CROWN JULES

    Spanish journalist Jose Manuel Garcia has claimed Jules Kounde has asked Sevilla to accept an offer from Chelsea for him.

    The 22-year-old has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Blues but a transfer fee is yet to be agreed with Sevilla.

    Chelsea were eager to include Kurt Zouma in a player-plus-cash deal, but the Frenchman isn't keen on a move away from London.

    As a result talks stalled, but now the deal could be revived with Kounde personally asking Sevilla to leave.

    LEON LATEST

    Manchester United have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka.

    The 26-year-old is in the final year of his contract with Bayern, but it's unsure whether he'll put pen to paper on a new deal.

    That's after the Express reported that Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer said they won’t pay over the odds to secure his future.

    And German outlet Bild report that United have offered the midfielder a £200,000 per-week deal should he leave Bayern on a free transfer nect summer.

    ADVANCED TALKS

    The Gunners are in advanced talks to sign Martin Odegaard, according to AS journalist Jorge Picon.

    Odegaard's agent is reported to have been in London today to discuss a deal for his client, with the 23-year-old eager on a move away from Madrid.

    And Arsenal are in the market for an attacking midfielder as Mikel Arteta looks to find a long-term replacement for Mesut Ozil.

    The Gunners are lacking creativity in the middle of the pitch, and that showed in the dismal 2-0 defeat to Brentford on Friday night.

    OD ONE OUT

    Martin Odegaard’s agent is in London with a view to securing a move to Arsenal.

    However, the player has yet to follow him with sources telling the AFC Bell that the Norwegian trained at Real Madrid as normal today.

    WIZARD OF OZ

    Watford have held preliminary talks over the potential signing of Fenerbache holding midfielder Ozan Tufan.

    The 26-year-old has no fewer than 86 caps for Turkey meaning it is highly likely a work permit application would be accepted if the Hornets can strike a deal.

    EYES ON NANDEZ

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has claimed Tottenham are keen on signing Cagliari defender Nahitan Nandez.

    And the Uruguayan is equally interested in a move to North London.

    The 25-year-old has been capped 45 times by his country and has spent the last two seasons with Cagliari in Serie A.

    Romano told Matt Hayes' YouTube channel:

    "No official bid has been made and nothing advanced for but he is one of the names Tottenham have been enquiring for in the last few days talking directly with Cagliari, the player is on the market because he’s desperate to leave.

    "He wants to try something new.”

    TAM'S FAREWELL

    New Roma striker Tammy Abraham has taken to social media in an emotional farewell post to Chelsea.

    The 23-year-old posted on Instagram after sealing a £34million switch to the Italian capital.

    He said: "Thank you.

    "It’s time to say goodbye to a club that means so much to me and my family.

    "From playing at the academy as a young kid from Peckham to winning the Champions League all those years later… I want to say thank you to my teammates, The Academy, all of the staff and of course, the Chelsea fans who have always supported me.

    "Wouldn’t be who I am today without you guys. Bring more trophies home boys! Love you all x TA9 out"

    SARR SEARCHING

    Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in a deal for FC Metz midfielder Pape Matar Sarr.

    That's according to Football Insider, with the 18-year-old said to be rated at around £28million.

    Chelsea and Real Madrid are also keen on the signature of the one-cap Senegal man, with Sarr scoring four goals in 27 Ligue 1 games from defensive midfield for Metz last season.

    United and Chelsea are willing to loan Sarr back to Metz for the upcoming season to help his development, with the youngster highly rated among Europe's top clubs.

    TOP TWO TARGETS

    The Gunners are "obsessed" to sign Martin Odegaard, Fabrizio Romano has revealed via his Twitch stream.

    Odegaard's agent is reportedly in London today to discuss terms with Arsenal, with the 23-year-old himself desperate for an Emirates return after spending the second half of last season on loan in North London.

    But if Real Madrid don't allow the Norwegian international to leave, Arteta will turn his attention to James Maddison.

    Fabrizio Romano has revealed the Leicester man is Arsenal's second target, with the 24-year-old being linked with a £70million move to North London earlier this summer.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    KO LOAN

    Manchester City defender Ko Itakura is set to seal a move to German side Schalke.

    That's according to Sky Sports' Max Bielefeld, who reports that a deal is almost done for the Japanese international.

    The 24-year-old has spent the last two years on loan with Dutch side FC Groningen, and is now set for another loan spell.

    A £3.4million optional permanent fee is also included in the deal.

    He's set to fly to Germany tomorrow to put pen to paper for the 2. Bundesliga side.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    LATERS LACA

    Alexandre Lacazette could be on his way out of the Emirates.

    That's according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who claims the 30-year-old has a greater chance of leaving than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    Both players missed Friday's dismal 2-0 defeat to Brentford with a mystery illness, and could soon seal a move away from the Emirates.

    Romano said: "I would keep an eye out on Lacazette more than Aubameyang, talking about transfers.

    "Because there is a chance Lacazette will be leaving in the next days, and so let’s see what happens."

  • Giacomo Pisa

    NO JOKING

    Sheffield United boss Slavisa Jokanovic says Arsenal remain keen on England goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

    The talented stopper, 23, is desperate to join Mikel Arteta’s side after being relegated to the Championship.

    But Jokanovic has warned Arteta he will not let Ramsdale go for pennies.

    The Blades boss said: “It’s natural he wants to be a Premier League player. I am talking with him, he believes it can be a good move for himself.

    “Right now he is a United player. It will depend on our club and Arsenal too because they are pushing for him but at this moment there is no change.

    “He is a talented English player and I understand Arsenal are interested, but this is the business.

    “If he is one of the best players in the league, his price is high and it’s up to Arsenal if they want him. They need to spend a lot of money.

    “I will be disappointed [if he leaves] but it’s part of the realistic situation.

    “Arsenal is pushing from one side and I am pulling from a different side.”

    COURTING KURT

    Tottenham are interested in a move for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

    That's according to Sky Sports, who claim Nuno Espirito Santo's side are in the market for another defender.

    And the 26-year-old Frenchman is the man they want, despite already signing centre-back Cristian Romero for £47million from Atalanta.

    Zouma has been widely linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, with first team opportunities hard to come by under Thomas Tuchel.

    And it could be London rivals Spurs who snap him up.

    PREM DIG

    Bayern Munich manager Julien Nagalsmann has slammed Premier League clubs for their spending this window.

    It follows Jack Grealish's £100million move to Manchester City and Romelu Lukaku's £97.5million move to Chelsea.

    Meanwhile Manchester United have spent £73million on Jadon Sancho and an initial £34million on Raphael Varane that could rise to £42million with add-ons.

    Arsenal have also spent a combined £78million on Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares.

    And Nagelsmann has aimed a dig at Premier League clubs for their spending in what was supposed to be a low-key window following financial difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

    When asked whether Bayern would make any more signings, he said: “It is not easy to spend loads of money, we are not in the Premier League.

    “If it is possible then, perhaps, we will get in a new player. If not, it’s okay as well and we will work with the players that we have in our squad.”

    NO DEAL

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed Barcelona are NOT interested in signing Arsenal club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    The 32-year-old missed Friday’s game against Brentford with a mystery illness, and has been linked with a move to Camp Nou.

    It’s been reported that Ronald Koeman’s side were interested in a potential swap deal that involved Aubameyang moving to Barcelona, and Camp Nou outcast Philippe Coutinho heading in the other direction.

    But Romano has put those rumours to bed, saying in a Tweet: “Barcelona have no interest in Pierre Aubameyang, confirmed – he’s not even a target for Barça, no swap deal with Philippe Coutinho.”
