Liverpool Close to Kostas Tsimikas Deal

Liverpool are closing in on a £11.75m deal for Olympiacos left-back Kostas Tsimikas, according to Melissa Reddy.

The Reds want someone to cover for Andy Robertson, but after refusing to pay £20m for Norwich's Jamal Lewis, Tsimikas quickly moved to the top of their wish list.

Adios Willian!

Pedro said his goodbyes to Chelsea fans earlier today, and now Willian has followed suit by penning his own letter to fans.

He wrote: "They were seven wonderful years, In August 2013 when I received the offer from Chelsea, I was convinced this was where I had to play. Today I am certain that it was the best of decisions. There were so many happy times, some sad, there were trophies and it was always very intense.

"The time has come for me to move on. I am certainly going to miss my teammates. I will miss all the staff at the club who've always treated me like a son and I will miss the fans. I leave with my head held high, safe in the knowledge that I won things here and always did my best in a Chelsea shirt!"

Norwich Set Buendía Asking Price

Adios Pedro!

After a stellar season on loan with Leeds, Brighton centre-back Ben White is a man in high demand.

Saturday's Latest...

A whole big day of nothing happening in the transfer market so far on Saturday.

There's a few updates on Jadon Sancho, but that's always the case isn't it? And Juventus have denied that Cristiano Ronaldo will be leaving the club this summer after they got dumped out of the Champions League last night.

More might happen though, I think? So try and stay alert in this heat ?

Arsenal Miss Out on Axel Disasi

David Silva Could Play in Serie A Until He Is 40

Seemingly on the verge of joining Lazio whenever Manchester City’s Champions League journey comes to an end, David Silva has told his father he thinks he could play in Serie A until he is 40.

“David had been telling me for some years that he wanted to play at Manchester City for a total of 10 years and then end the cycle there," Fernando Silva told El Transistor on Spanish radio.

“I can confirm that he likes the Italian league and would really enjoy playing in Italy. He told me he could play there until he's 40 years old.”

City legend Silva turned 34 earlier this year.

Chelsea in Talks With Rennes Over Tomori Loan

Having played under Frank Lampard on loan at Derby in 2018/19, Fikayo Tomori looked as though he could be set for a long-term role back at Chelsea when he was drafted in as a starter a few games into this season. But then he barely featured in the second half of the season.

Now, The Athletic reports that talks are underway about sending him back out on loan, this time to French club Rennes. But there are other clubs in England who are interested in the 22-year-old, while Chelsea are yet to make a decision either way at this point in time.

Chelsea have also considered offering Tomori to West Ham to sweeten an offer for Declan Rice.

Arsenal’s Torreira on Milan Radar

Lucas Torreira is among the players Arsenal are looking to move on this summer and the Uruguayan midfielder is now a reported target for AC Milan.

Torreira came to England from Italy in 2018 when he joined the Gunners from Sampdoria and was already linked with a return to Serie A in January. Now, the Daily Telegraph writes that Milan are the favourites for his signature as long as Arsenal agree to sell.

Fiorentina are also linked, but Milan are considered the ‘more likely destination’.

Willian Move to Arsenal Now ‘Close’

Leaving Chelsea will not see Willian leave London, the city he had made into a second home since first arriving in 2013. Sky Sports now describe his proposed free transfer to Arsenal as ‘close’ to completion, with the Gunners having offered a three-year deal earlier this week.

That is a significant show of faith in a player who turns 32 on Sunday.

Sky explain that in addition to the length of the contract, Willian will choose Arsenal ahead of Barcelona or Inter Miami because of the rejuvenation Mikel Arteta has overseen, as well as the opportunity to work under technical director and fellow countryman Edu.

Flick Understands Why Thiago Wants to Leave Bayern

Bayern Munich coach Hans-Dieter Flick has acknowledged that it is understandable Thiago Alcantara wants to leave the club at this stage of his career in search of a new challenge, although he would rather keep the Spanish midfielder that see him go.

Liverpool have been the club most heavily linked with 29-year-old Thiago. However, there remain doubts about whether the new Premier League champions will actually make a formal approach.

Arsenal Prepared to Cash in on Maitland-Niles

Despite manager Mikel Arteta preferring to keep utility player Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Arsenal could try and cash in on the home-grown youngster they value at more than £20m. There is already rumoured interest from Premier League sides Everton and Brighton.

There are eight other players the Gunners also ideally want rid of before the start of next season, with sales important to raise transfer funds that are otherwise lacking.

It's Not Over Yet For Lautaro and Barcelona

Lautaro Martinez's chances of moving to Barcelona seemed to be over after Josep Maria Bartomeu poured ice on the deal in July.

However, the unpopular Barca president performed a spectacular U-turn when speaking before the club's Champions League meeting with Napoli on Saturday.

In short, it looks like the move is back on. For more detail check out the full story here.

David Silva Edges Closer to Serie A Move

It's going to be strange adjusting to a world in which David Silva is not lighting up the Premier League each week but if we could choose for him to go anywhere, Lazio would be high on our list.

Simone Inzaghi's side are one of the most exciting teams in Europe and they could become even more appealing next season as a move for Silva edges closer to completion.

Sky Sports Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio reports that negotiations are "continuing along with positive signals," which all sounds rather promising.

Eze in Hammers Swap Deal

If you've never seen Eberechi Eze play before, stop reading this and go watch one of the tens of YouTube compilations the QPR man has inspired over the past few months.

Pep Confirms Eric García's Exit Wish

City might need Koulibaly because Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Eric García doesn't want to hang about at the Etihad.

Enter Barcelona.

Man City 'Schedule Koulibaly Meeting'

Fresh off landing Nathan Aké, Manchester City are still planning some more signings, and Foot Mercato state that Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly could be next.

As the story goes, City and Napoli have scheduled a meeting for next week to try and find an agreement which works for everyone.

Willian 'Agrees Personal Terms' With Arsenal

Arsenal have given up on Philippe Coutinho in favour of Willian, and ESPN state that the Chelsea man has now agreed a three-year, £100,000-a-week contract to move to the Emirates this summer.

IT'S DONE!

They didn't keep us waiting long. How nice.

Alixis Sánchez is now officially an Inter player and has penned a three-year contract at San Siro!

Barcelona Confirm Gustavo Maia Arrival

Barcelona have completed a €4.5m deal to sign Brazilian forward Gustavo Maia from São Paulo.

The 19-year-old, who has penned a five-year contract with a €300m release clause, will join up with Barça B for the upcoming season.

Tahith Chong Nearing Werder Bremen Loan

After his intriguing cameo as a left-back in Wednesday's win over LASK, United winger Tahith Chong is closing in on a move to Werder Bremen on loan.

Chong's agent told BILD that the Dutchman would like to move to the Bundesliga and his temporary exit could be confirmed as early as Thursday.

Chelsea's Pursuit of Sergio Reguilón Confirmed

Chelsea's hunt for a new left-back is one of this summer's top stories, and Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Real Madrid's Sergio Reguilón has played his way on to Frank Lampard's radar.

The Blues are expected to trump Everton's £18m bid, but there are rumblings that it could be a loan instead.

Carter-Vickers Ameri-Can Leave For £2.5m

Cameron Carter-Vickers has never appeared in the Premier League for Tottenham, instead carving out a reputation as an okay defender via a string of Championship loan moves.

Now, the 22-year-old could be finally allowed to leave Spurs permanently. According to Football Insider, the double barrelled surname wielding American could be sold for as little as £2.5m in the upcoming window.

Whether any Premier League or second tier sides bite for that price remains to be seen.

Norwich Want At Least £20m For Liverpool Target

Liverpool may currently be champions of England, Europe and the World, but that does not mean they will get it all their own way in the transfer market this summer.

The Telegraph report that in order to sign Norwich left-back Jamal Lewis, the Reds will have to pay £20m, double what they are currently willing to fork out. This could throw a spanner in the works with Liverpool known to want to pursue good value deals only.

Fulham Eye Heartwarming Family Reunion

Steven Sessegnon could be reunited with his older brother Ryan if Fulham get their way in the upcoming transfer window.

According to the Telegraph, Sessegnon senior may rejoin his former club on loan although Tottenham would prefer he remain in north London. Surely José Mourinho isn't evil enough to keep the two brother apart just to play Ryan in a few Carabao Cup games?

No, wait. He definitely is actually.

United Line Up Sancho Alternative?

Look, obviously Manchester United are going to end up signing Jadon Sancho but just in case the deal does somehow fall apart it's good that the Red Devils are lining up some alternatives.

One such player could be Fiorentina forward Federico Chiesa. According to Italian outlet La Nazione, the 22-year-old is subject to a €55m bid from United. How reliable is this information? Not particularly considering I'd never heard of the newspaper until about 30 seconds ago.

James Rodriguez Clearly Loves Living in Madrid

Madrid is a wonderful place, rich in art galleries, beautiful green spaces and quaint night spots for food and drink. It's easy to fall in love with the Spanish capital as James Rodriguez seems to have done with the Columbian set to cross the city's divide to play for Atletico next season.

According to Gol's Great Gol, Real Madrid will sanction Rodriguez's €10-15m departure as Diego Simeone looks to address the dearth of goals and creativity in his side last season.

Jadon Sancho Latest

You didn't really think we could go a day without offering you a Jadon Sancho to Manchester United update did you?

Read 90min's latest take on the tiresome saga here.

Bayern Munich Attempts to Sign Kubo Rebuffed

Bayern Munich's attempts to sign Real Madrid wonderkid Takefusa Kubo on loan are set to be unsuccessful, according to AS (via Daily Mail).

The Japanese superstar impressed during a spell at Mallorca last season, so much so in fact that Die Roten were interested in signing him. However, Los Blancos have rebuffed their approach with Villarreal believed to be leading the race for his signature.

Why Bayern even wanted to develop a player for one of their European rivals in the first place is beyond us...

Wat a Signing This Could Be For Villa

Aston Villa lacked striking options last season, particularly after record signing Wesley was struck down with injury.

In an attempt to rectify this Dean Smith is eyeing up a move for Brentford's Ollie Watkins, according to the Telegraph. Watkins managed 25 goals last season and is available for £18m after the Bees failed to win promotion to the Premier League.

Eagles Ready to Swoop for Ryan Fraser

Has there ever been a stronger case of a player believing their own hype than Ryan Fraser. After a breakout 2018/2019 campaign, the Scot registered just five goal involvments for Bournemouth last season and refused to sign a short term contract extension to help the Cherries stave off relegation.

Despite his meagre statistical return, Crystal Palace are interested in signing the winger according to the Daily Mail. Fraser is set to double his money to £50,000-per-week if the deal goes ahead.

Branislav Ivanovic Set for Premier League Return?

Now, this is a transfer rumour we can get behind.

After splashing over £100m incredibly irresponsibly last time they were promoted to the Premier League, Fulham seem to be up to their old tricks again. The Cottagers have been linked (via B92) with a move for 36-year-old Branislav Ivanovic who was recently released by Zenit St Petersburg.

Would this be a disaster? Probably. Would it still be really fun? Certainly. Let's get it done Tony Khan!

Chelsea Eyeing Up Slam-Dunk of a Deal

Good headline that.

According to the Brighton & Hove Independent, Chelsea are considering a move for Seagulls stalwart Lewis Dunk. The centre-back is likely to cost in excess of £30m with Leicester and Arsenal also being linked in the past.

The Blues are in dire need of defensive reinforcements as their embarrassing rearguard performance in the FA Cup showed but is 28-year-old Dunk really the man they need?

Arsenal to Rival Manchester United for Defender

Earlier this week it was reported that Manchester United have held talks with the agent of Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes ahead of a potential move.

The Brazilian seems to fit the United mould. He's young, a left footed centre-back and the £30m fee is affordable. However, every top half Premier League side under the sun has been linked with the 22-year-old at some point with Arsenal the latest suitors.

French outlet France Bleu Nord (via Express) claim the Gunners are close to concluding a deal for the player. If it sounds too good to be true, that's because it probably is. Sorry Arsenal fans.

Anyone who wants to know more about Magalhaes, this article is a good place to start.

Willian's Move to Arsenal Confirmed?!

Stay with us on this one, because it sounds a little bit ridiculous. Willian's move to Arsenal appears to have been confirmed by a leaked video of the new PES game.

The clip can be viewed on the Sun's website and it clearly shows an avatar of Willian strutting about in the Gunners new kit for the 2020/2021 season. The Brazilian recently rejected a new deal at Chelsea and his Arsenal move now seems likely to be confirmed imminently.

Arsenal Given Boost in Pursuit of Benrahma?

Look, we're sorry to remind you about that diabolical playoff final last night, but Fulham's victory over Brentford could have significant implications in the transfer market.

The Bees' star man Said Benrahma is now likely to depart Griffin Park - sorry, the Brentford Community Stadium - with Premier League interest intensifying.

Arsenal are one of the club's linked with a move and the Algerian gave the Gunners a boost after he liked a tweet from a fan who argued the winger would be a good fit in north London (via football.london). After sending social media into meltdown, Benrahma swiftly unliked the post. Stop playing with our hearts bro.
