Real Madrid have made their first move in the form of a €160m bid for the PSG star, while Ronaldo is attempting to engineer a move to Manchester City after deciding to leave Juventus.
Chelsea are not done either as they look to step up their interest in Sevilla defender Jules Kounde and Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez. The latter could be a loan deal, but Manchester United are also reportedly interested.
Mikel Arteta is facing questions over his future, with suggestions that Antonio Conte could be in line to replace him if Arsenal’s form does not quickly improve.
Liverpool have also been linked with the likes of Saul and Mbappe amid new contract plans for Mohamed Salah, while West Ham may have fresh hope as they pursue the permanent return of Jesse Lingard and a move for Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma.

More on Kane
Chief football correspondent Dan Kilpatrick writes: “Kane was desperate to force his way out of his boyhood to join Manchester City but Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman, was determined not to sell the 28-year-old, who has three years remaining on the six-year deal he signed in 2018.
“Spurs rejected at least one bid for Kane from City, worth around £100million, and are thought to have made it clear to the Abu Dhabi-backed club that their talisman was not for sale.
“Kane was frustrated at Levy’s stance, believing he had a gentleman’s agreement with the chairman to allow him to leave this summer, but has now accepted remaining in north London for at least another year.”
