Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal are among a raft of clubs hoping to complete some transfer business before the window closes at the end of the window, and we’ll have live coverage of today’s latest transfer news, gossip and done deals as we bring you the very latest rumours from around the continent.
But we start with Tottenham, and Christian Eriksen is on the verge of completing a move to Inter Milan. He is expected to fly to Italy for a medical early next week to seal the deal, in which he is expected to earn a tidy £320,000 per week. Tottenham have turned their attentions to Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose as they look to keep up their push to finish in the top four, and the Spanish club must decide whether to play their distracted star this weekend against Mallorca. One player who could be heading in the opposite direction to Eriksen is AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek. Spurs and Milan are said to be haggling over a deal which the Italian club hope will be worth as much as £30m, and the negotiations could run over the coming days towards deadline day.
Manchester United are locked in debate with Sporting Lisbon over the fee for Bruno Fernandes, which could break down or breakthrough at any moment. Sporting are holding out for up £68m while United would prefer to pay something closer to £50m, for a player who has already agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club. Meanwhile, Arsenal are considering tripling the wages of teenage star Gabriel Martinelli to ward off interest from Real Madrid, while likewise Manchester United are set to offer teenage talent Angel Gomes a bumper deal to keep him from quitting at the end of the season when his contract runs out. Chelsea are said to be interested in the midfielder. Follow all the latest live below:
