With less than a week left for the summer transfer window to shut, managers are still eying new recruits to strengthen their squads. Harry Kane has revealed he will be staying at Tottenham, leaving Manchester City still looking for a new striker.

Liverpool have already made their move in the market by signing RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate, and will be looking to bring in a few more reinforcements too. Manchester United have gone ahead and brought in Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, while many other top clubs are being linked with big names.

With that, here are the top transfer rumours of the day.

City turn attention to Ronaldo

Manchester City are reportedly considering a move for Cristiano Ronaldo, according to ESPN.

The report claims that Pep Guardiola's side are considering a move for the Juventus man, who is out of contract next summer, after Harry Kane revealed his decision at stay at Tottenham this season.

Spurs want Juventus' McKennie

Tottenham are reportedly in talks to sign Weston McKennie from Juventus, according to The Independent.

The Serie A side are open to selling the US international who could be available for close to £40m this summer. Spurs director Fabio Paratici signed McKennie at Juve and hopes to reunite with him in the Premier League.

Chelsea confident of Kounde

Chelsea are reportedly confident of signing Sevilla's Jules Kounde this summer, according to Goal.

The report adds that the Blues have found a verbal agreement to sign the 22-year-old, but the signing depends on Kurt Zouma's highly-anticipated move to West Ham.

Solskjaer unsure of more signings

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he isn't sure if Manchester United will make more signings this summer, but added "you never know in the world of football".
“I don’t think much is going to happen,” he told Norwegian journalist Arilas Ould-Saada. “If something happens, it is a bonus. You never know what happens in the world of football. There’s about a week left."
