All eyes will be on the Emirates today as we await confirmation from Arsenal of the signings of Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale, with the pair costing a total of more than £50million.
Things are less certain on the other side of north London as the Harry Kane saga continues, while another world-class forward – Robert Lewandowski – could be on the move from Bayern Munich.
It still seems slightly unreal, but Lionel Messi been officially unveiled as a PSG player after Barcelona were unable to afford a new contract. There is also mounting speculation that Paul Pogba could be headed to join him – but one megastar who won’t be on the move, it seems, is Cristiano Ronaldo – Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out a Real Madrid return for the Juventus star.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have been offered Barcelona’s Ilaix Moriba as they also eye Atletico Madrid stalwart Saul Niguez. Tottenham are being linked with Pau Torres and Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic as well as Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic and Cagliari’s Nahitan Nandez, while new reports say they are rivalling West Ham for Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma and Arsenal for Houssem Aouar amid interest in a reunion between Nuno Espirito Santo and Wolves star Adama Traore.
