Arsenal have maintained interest in Gabriel Jesus and the Brazilian has not yet written off a move to North London. The Manchester Evening News have suggested that those close to the player are of the opinion that a decision will be made upon return from international duty. 

The Sun have confirmed that Arsenal have quoted Benfica a little over eight million quid for the services of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Chelsea: 

Romelu Lukaku continues to raise suspicion around a possible move back to Inter Milan. The Belgian forward has now ‘split from his agent’ in a bid to push through a transfer deal. 

Football.London have continued to report that Chelsea is keeping tabs on Christopher Nkunku. The Leipzig attacking player could provide the answer to Thomas Tuchel’s attacking questions. 

Liverpool: 

Senegalese striker, Sadio Mane, reportedly intends to leave Liverpool during the European summer. Whilst there are strong links suggesting Bayer Munich will lead the charge for his signature, his destination is yet to be confirmed. The player has remained respectful of the club, management, and the fans; Jurgen Klopp does not look to intend standing in his way. (This is per Fabrizio Romano on Twitter).

Interestingly, Football.London have earlier reported that Liverpool was considering a bid for Son Heung-min. This was subsequently derailed after Tottenham secured Champions League football! 

Tottenham: 

Spurs have told Villarreal that 17 million pounds will be accepted for their 26-year-old Argentina midfielder Giovani lo Celso.  

Croatia winger Ivan Perisic’s move to Tottenham is practically a done deal. There doesn’t seem to be any surprise speedbump that could negatively affect this move. Fabrizio Romano – Twitter. 

Manchester City:

The Daily Mail are of the opinion that Manchester City might play a shrewd card and bring in Marc Cucurella from Brighton. He is currently valued at around 30 million pounds but is considered an option to fulfill the gap currently at left back for Pep Guardiola. 

Manchester United:

Spanish defender Pau Torres, 25, is close to completing a move to Manchester United. The defender is a target for defensive reinforcements at Old Trafford and Cadena Ser – via the Mirror UK have confirmed that the players representatives have travelled to England for further conversations. 

James Garner, 21, has been impressive on loan at Nottingham Forest and played a role in guiding the club back into the Premier League. One would assume that United would be interested in seeing Garner get an opportunity at Old Trafford, but Leicester City have surfaced as potential shock suitors. (This is per The Mirror UK).

Raphinha, 25, is now being possibly linked with a move to United after all. After there were suggestions that the player might favour respecting the rivalry between Leeds and United, The Express is reporting that the Brazilian forward may favour the move. 

Real Madrid:

Fabrizio Romano has reported that Real Madrid have held some internal discussions over a potential swoop for Serge Gnabry. The youngster has just one year left on his current deal, but there is little to no progress on any extensions. In his time in Germany, Gnabry has become a world class player, and this is now being recognized by Real Madrid. 

Barcelona:

Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, 25, is the target of many Premier League clubs. Mundo Deportivo – via the Mirror UK – have reported that Liverpool have contacted the players representatives, but that Chelsea are also admirers of the Frenchman’s signature.

Barcelona’s pursuit of Robert Lewandowski is on ice until they can fund the deal, however, Bayern Munich’s pursuit of Sadio Mane might make things easier for the Spanish side. Marca is reporting that should Bayern land the Liverpool star; the Lewandowski deal duly follow.

Barcelona is interested in signing Chelsea target Jules Kounde from Sevilla, and if this doesn’t go through, Kalidou Koulibaly might be an alternative from Napoli – although the latter’s representatives have denied any conversation with clubs. Mundo Deportivo.
