Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham remain heavily involved in the transfer window as the clock ticks down towards the summer deadline. Arsenal want to sign Moussa Diaby from Bayer Leverkusen as they target a new winger before September 1, while a late push for Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans is still expected to materialise but Cody Gakpo is no longer a target.

Chelsea are confident of signing Wesley Fofana at the third attempt, while they are also trying to seal a deal for Frenkie de Jong. Thomas Tuchel is also said to be pressing the case to bring in another Barcelona player in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while the Blues are also interested in known Tottenham target Nicolo Zaniolo as well as the likes of Denzel Dumfries and Kyle Walker-Peters.

Spurs are set to sign Udinese’s Destiny Udogie next week and have also held talks over Memphis Depay, though offloading several unwanted players is now Antonio Conte’s top priority. Manchester United, meanwhile, are set for crucial negotiations with Adrien Rabiot today and insist Marcus Rashford is not for sale amid interest from PSG, who could sell them Mauro Icardi. Follow the latest transfer news, rumours and gossip below!
