TOTTENHAM are on the verge of announcing the £25m signing of Brighton's Yves Bissouma.

The midfielder has today passed a medical in North London.

Meanwhile, Liverpool remain busy following the signing of Darwin Nunez.

The press in Aberdeen report that right-back Calvin Ramsay will join the Reds for a £5.5m fee.

And Inter Milan are said to have made a £4.5m loan offer for Romelu Lukaku.

Such a fee is unlikely to force Chelsea's hand, however.

    West Ham push for Areola

    West Ham are pushing to complete a deal for keeper Alphonse Areola amid interest from Newcastle.

    Hammers' boss David Moyes wants to sign Areola permanently loan following his impressive season on loan from Paris Saint-Germain.

    The three-cap Frenchman, 29, was second choice behind Lukasz Fabianski but starred in West Ham's run to the Europa League semi-finals.

    Now Moyes is keen to take up the £7.6million option included in the initial loan to clinch a move.

    And it's thought he expects Areola be No1 at the London Stadium before too long.

    The deal seemed simple to complete, especially as Areola has had a family home in London for a number of years.

    Chelsea line up Lewandowksi transfer

    Chelsea are lining up Robert Lewandowski as a back-up target for Gabriel Jesus after Arsenal took a huge step towards signing the Brazilian, according to reports.

    Chelsea had hoped to sign Jesus, 25, to solve their centre forward woes, with Timo Werner also struggling for goals following his 2020 transfer.

    In fact, the German is regularly forced out wide by Thomas Tuchel, with Kai Havertz leading the line as a false nine.

    Tuchel is desperate for an elite striker to finally solve his forward dilemma, with the boss keen on his wealth of Premier League experience and versatility.

    But with Arsenal leading the race for the Manchester City star, Tuchel has turned his attention to Lewandowski as a back-up option, according to Christian Falk.

    Man Utd offered 'nothing', says Pogba

    Paul Pogba claims he left Manchester United because he did not receive a substantial contract offer from the club.

    The midfielder, 29, is set to leave Old Trafford after six years when his contract expires at the end of the month.

    In a new Amazon Prime documentary about his life titled "The Pogmentary", Pogba shares the conversation he had with his agent, the late Mino Raiola, about United's offer in the summer of 2021.

    Raiola says to his client: “Yes. They absolutely want you to stay.

    "For me, the offer doesn’t reflect that. I told them, ‘If you want him to stay, don’t make that offer’.

    "I will make them understand that if they really want you to stay and they want to build a project around you, this time they have to act differently and put the money on the table.”

    Pogba agreed with his agent's view of the situation and the Frenchman responds saying: “They’re bluffing.

    “How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing? Never seen that.”

    Has Gary Neville got a reason to worry?

    Gary Neville admitted Manchester United’s failure to make a signing this transfer window is “worrying” him.

    As well as De Jong, the Red Devils have been linked with AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer, who reportedly wants out at the San Siro.

    Elsewhere an offer has been made for Christian Eriksen, who is a free agent after his short-term deal with Brentford came to an end.

    But Neville is quite rightly keen for much of United’s business to be done before the Ten Hag era gets underway at home to Brighton on August 7.

    The Red Devils have been handed a tricky opening month by the Premier League schedulers.

    After travelling to Brentford, United face Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester, before hosting Arsenal at the start of September.

    And now the Mirror have claimed that the Hammers boss is keen to bring him to the London Stadium.

    They also state that Newcastle are interested in the player following his stunning 2021-22 season.

    Want fries with that?

    Manchester United and Tottenham have been joined by Chelsea in the battle to sign Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries.

    The Red Devils and Spurs are both priced as 6/1 favourites with Sky Bet, but Chelsea are just behind at 7/1.

    The Dutch international impressed during last summers Euros campaign where the attacking fullback bagged two goals and an assist in Netherlands' run to the round of 16.

    His solid displays in the Euros earned the 26-year-old a £12m move from PSV to Inter Milan.

    The right wing-back impressed in his first season in Italy, winning the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana, leading to reports of another move this summer.

    Sky Bet odds:

    • Manchester United – 6/1
    • Tottenham – 6/1
    • Chelsea – 7/1
    • Bayern Munich – 16/1

    Premier League trio Brentford, Leeds and newly-promoted Nottingham Forest are all admirers of the Wales forward.

      Breaking – Arsenal set to seal Jesus with £50m bid

      Arsenal have submitted a £50million bid for Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus, according to reports.

      The Gunners previously bid £30m for Jesus, 25, but are now set to match City's £50m asking price, report The Times.

      And the forward is said to be keen on the move to link back up with Mikel Arteta, who he worked with at City.

      The Gunners were seemingly unwilling to pay £50m to land Jesus previously given he is set to enter the final year of his City contract.

      But the striker's agent Marcello Pettinati reportedly arrived in London yesterday to hold transfer talks with Arsenal.

      Personal terms are still yet to be agreed but it seems Jesus is heading for the Emirates.

      Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports said: “Arsenal remain confident and on course to sign Youri Tielemans before the month is out.

      Jorginho no longer 'untouchable'?

      Juventus could offer Merih Demiral to Chelsea in exchange for Jorginho, with the Italian midfielder no longer considered "untouchable", according to reports.

      Chelsea chief Tuchel has a plan to rebuild and could use Jorginho, 30, as a pawn to land a freebie to help ease his woes.

      The Italy international was considered "untouchable" by Stamford Bridge chiefs and was even tipped for the Ballon d'Or as recently as last year.

      But according to CalcioMercato, Tuchel is happy to move on from the midfielder, who's hot form cooled late last season.

      And Juventus are set to take advantage by offering a straight swap.

      Demiral, 24, spent last season on loan at Atalanta, but the Serie A side rejected their £15million option to sign the Turkish international permanently.

      The centre-back is not in Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri's plans.

      The Old Lady boss was set to put Demiral on the transfer market for around £25m.

      Chelsea a ‘realistic destination’ for Nkunku

      Former England international Glen Johnson reckons that Christopher Nkunku should snub Manchester United for a move to Stamford Bridge.

      And the ex-Chelsea man spoke to about the highly-rated midfielder.

      Johnson said: “I believe Chelsea is a more realistic destination than Manchester United if both clubs are genuinely interested.

      “A player going to a top team that’s had a really good season will be looking for Champions League football… I definitely think that’s where these sorts of players look first.

      “If he was to leave RB Leipzig, then I think Chelsea could be a better fit.”
