Transfer news LIVE! Arsenal ‘agree’ Pino deal; Chelsea FC close in on De Jong; Tottenham medical; latest gossip

- Advertisement -

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are all active players in the final weeks of the summer transfer window. The Gunners have received a positive update on their £42million bid for Yeremy Pino but Sandro Tonali looks to be staying put. Pepe, Lucas Paqueta and Youri Tielemans have also been linked with Manchester United also keen on young striker Codgy Gakpo.

Chelsea are nearing a deal for Frenkie de Jong but must first persuade the Dutch midfielder to end his Barcelona stint. Another potentially arriving from the Camp Nou is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang while Wesley Fofana remains a key target in defence. Milan Skriniar could prove the centre-back’s ideal alternative.

In north London, Tottenham look to have failed with a bid for Nicolo Zaniolo with player sales the key for Antonio Conte. There is also a surprise move in the offing at Fulham as Willian emerges as a target for the Cottagers.

Arsenal close in on Pino

Arsenal are set to agree a deal worth £33m for Yeremi Pino, according to AS.

Mikel Arteta has been looking for an alternative to Raphinha, who snubbed the Gunners’ advances in favour of Barcelona.

And Pinto is that man, claim reports in France, with Villarreal ready to cash in on the winger this summer.

Chelsea close in on De Jong

Chelsea are hopeful of agreeing a deal with Barcelona to Frenkie de Jong, talkSPORT reports.

Manchester United are facing up to an embarrassing end to their months-long pursuit with the Blues hijacking a move for their top transfer target.

De Jong is still owed £17million in unpaid wages by Barcelona, which complicates any move, but Chelsea remain in talks to sign the player.
