The summer transfer window is alive and kicking as clubs throughout Europe look to cement their squads ahead of next season.
It’s the future of Tottenham striker Harry Kane that will dominate much of the headlines until the close of the window at 11pm BST on August 31.
Manchester City are the favourites to land the England captain, and Sportsmail also understands they are confident of securing a £100million move for Jack Grealish after Euro 2020 comes to an end.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have announced they have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund to sign Jadon Sancho, while Arsenal are trying to lure Ben White to the Emirates in a big-money move.
Sportsmail’s LUKE AUGUSTUS will keep you up-to-date with the latest negotiations, rumours and done deals below.
MARK WILSON: The 27-year-old Englishman came onto the Ibrox radar last year when it was revealed he was likely to leave after seeing out his Sheffield United contract.
Lundstram is now a free agent after that deal expired and is thought to be one of a number of options under consideration at Ibrox. Steven Gerrard has already added Nnamdi Ofoborh to his midfield armoury for next season after he agreed a pre-contract move from Bournemouth.
Barcelona ‘are open to offers of just £21m for flop Philippe Coutinho with AC Milan interested’… that’s £124m less than they paid Liverpool for the Brazilian in 2018!
MAX MATHEWS: The Spanish giants paid top dollar to buy the Brazilian attacking midfielder from Liverpool back in January 2018, but the 29-year-old has failed to consistently impress at the Nou Camp and was sent out on loan to Bayern Munich in the 2019-20 season.
And according to Mundo Deportivo, as reported by Football Espana, the club – which is struggling severely due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic and a gargantuan wage bill – could accept a £124m loss on the 63-cap international.
Liverpool are ‘very interested in Lille star Renato Sanches’ with the French club ‘ready to sell’ the Portugal midfielder… but Jurgen Klopp’s side ‘face competition from Arsenal’
KATHRYN BATTE: Sanches played an important part in Lille’s shock Ligue 1 title win last season but French outlet L’Equipe claim the club are open to cashing in on the midfielder, with Liverpool ‘very interested’ in making a move.
L’Equipe also report that the Reds face competition for Sanches from Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta’s side ready to join the bidding war.
