Goal takes a look at the biggest transfer stories from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond throughout the ongoing summer window
INTER TO MAKE £35M MANE BID
Inter Milan plan to make a £35 million bid for Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane, according to Express .
The Serie A side is looking to make a splash in the transfer market after a big-spending summer from rival AC Milan, and the Senegal international reportedly has been on the club’s radar for some time.
LIVERPOOL STEP UP VAN DIJK HUNT
Liverpool refuse to be beaten in their pursuit of Virgil van Dijk and will attempt to close the deal before the end of the transfer window, according to the Daily Mail .
Southampton have been adamant they will not sell their star defender, insisting he would stay at St. Mary’s.
But after incessant interest from the Reds the club could now relent, and have lined up Lazio’s Wesley Hoedt as a possible replacement.
BARCA HAS €100M COUTINHO OFFER REJECTED
Barcelona had a €100m offer for Philippe Coutinho rejected by Liverpool, according to Mohamed Bouhafsi of RMCSport .
The La Liga giants previously had an €80m bid knocked back by the Reds, who insisted earlier Monday they will not sell the Brazilian playmaker .
EVERTON TO SPEND £200M IN TRANSFERS
Ronald Koeman is ready to spend over £200m in transfers if he can secure his desired targets, reports the Mirror .
The report states Everton are closing in on Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson for £50m, but Koeman still wants a striker to replace Romelu Lukaku and fancies Olivier Giroud and Christian Benteke.
The Toffees boss also would like a centre-back as insurance for the aging duo of Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka.
MILAN OFFER FOR SANCHES REJECTED
Bayern Munich have rejected an AC Milan offer for unsettled midfielder Renato Sanches, Le10Sport.com reports.
The big-spending Italians reportedly offered €10m to loan the Portugal international with a €40m option to purchase after the season, but Bayern denied the offer.
LIVERPOOL LINE UP LEMAR
Monaco have already turned down a €50m approach from the Gunners for their left-sided attacker.
Barca’s move for the Brazilian, meanwhile, would seem to hinge upon Neymar moving to PSG.
MAN UTD AGREE AURIER TERMS
Manchester United have struck a deal with Serge Aurier to sign the right-back from Paris Saint-Germain but he wil have to face a court hearing to be granted permission to enter the UK, The Mirror reports.
The 24-year-old has previously been banned from entering the country after he was found guilty of assaulting a police officer. However, the Red Devils are anxious to provide another option alongside Antonio Valencia and hope to complete the deal after agreeing personal terms.
LIVERPOOL WANT LEMAR
Liverpool may enter the race to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco if Philipp Coutinho joins Barcelona, Le10 Sport claims.
The 21-year-old midfielder has been the subject of bids from Arsenal, but Monaco are determined to hold on to him. However, with Coutinho being pursued by Barca as a potential replacement for Neymar should he join Paris Saint-Germain, the Reds may go after the France international.
BARCA COULD TURN TO OZIL
Barcelona could turn their attention to signing Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil if they are unable to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, Don Balon claims.
With Neymar’s future up in the air regarding a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain, the Catalan side are having to look at alternatives to the former Brazil captain.
Coutinho is said to be atop their wishlist if his countryman does leave for PSG, but Barca believe they could prise Ozil away from the Emirates for a fee of around €60 million and have a dig at Real Madrid – the German’s former club – in the process.
RONALDO DOESN’T WANT MBAPPE AT REAL
Cristiano Ronaldo does not want to see Kylian Mbappe join Real Madrid because he is wary of losing his star status at the club, according to Diario Gol .
The Champions League winners have been linked closely with Monaco’s wonderkid, with rumours of a summer signing continuing to circulate.
But Ronaldo is reportedly worried sharing the spotlight with Mbappe will harm his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or again, and would not look kindly on the blockbuster signing.
LIVERPOOL FACE KEITA COMPETITION
Liverpool’s chances of landing Naby Keita are in further danger as CalcioMercato claim Inter have entered the race for the RB Leipzig star.
The Reds have chased Keita for weeks, but have been unable to agree terms with his club and are resigned to delaying a further approach for next summer.
But even there they may miss out on the 22-year-old, as the Serie A giants also consider a bid in 2018.
ARSENAL SCOUTING KARAMOH
Arsenal and Tottenham have both sent scouts to watch Caen forward Yann Karamoh, according to the Sunday Mirror .
The teenager has been tipped as the ‘next Kylian Mbappe’ and has also courted interest from Fiorentina and both Milan clubs.
CHELSEA PLOT DEMBELE SWOOP
Chelsea are planning a move for Celtic’s teenage sensation Karamoko Dembele, according to The Sun .
The 14-year-old has already represented the Bhoys at under-20 level and is seen as one of the best teenagers in world football.
WATFORD WANT GIBBS
Watford have joined the hunt to sign Kieran Gibbs, who will have to take a significant pay cut to secure a move away from Arsenal this summer, reports Sky Sports .
Gibbs has been linked with Newcastle and saw West Brom pull out of talks over a deal earlier this month after a £10 million bid for the left-back was rejected by Arsenal.
BARCA CONFIDENT OF COUTINHO DEAL
Barcelona are growing increasingly optimistic of completing a deal to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, claims Sport .
Liverpool have insisted that Coutinho is not for sale , but reports have claimed the Brazilian has already agreed a five-year contract to move to Camp Nou after telling the Reds he wants to leave.
The latest speculation claims Liverpool are now ready to listen to Barcelona, who are aiming to pay a maximum of €85 million for Coutinho.
WEST BROM WANT BARCA DEFENDER
Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen is wanted back in the Premier League by West Bromwich Albion, reports Sky Sports .
Vermaelen spent last season on loan at Roma, and the former Arsenal centre-half still has two years left on his Barcelona contract, but could be allowed to leave again this summer.
SERIE A OPTION FOR JENKINSON
Verona are considering an approach for Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson, who is wanted by clubs in Germany and Italy, according to Corriere dello Sport .
Jenkinson has also been linked with Brighton and Swansea, but could be offered the opportunity to play outside of the Premier League.
MAN UTD TO OFFER £90M FOR BALE
Manchester United will offer Real Madrid £90 million for Gareth Bale, but will wait until next summer to do so, says an exclusive report from the Express .
The former Tottenham star has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, though Zinedine Zidane’s desire to keep hold of the attacker has ended any potential deal.
Jose Mourinho retains an interest in Bale, though, and will launch a fresh approach for his services in 2018.
MAN UTD TO SEAL PERISIC SIGNING
Manchester United are close to completing a £48 million deal to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter, according to The Daily Star .
The Red Devils have been locked in talks with the Nerazzurri over the Croatia international, who has told the club he wants to leave. United were holding off meeting Inter’s £50m valuation, but it seems they have managed to talk the Italian club down.
NEWCASTLE LOOK TO LUCAS PEREZ
Arsenal outcast Lucas Perez is a target for newly-promoted Newcastle United, according to a report from the Sun .
The 28-year-old forward is determined to force his way out of the north London club this summer, with Rafa Benitez supposedly offering him an escape route.
