    Southampton are looking to tie up the signing of Brazilian defender Lyanco in the next 24 hours.

    The versatile centre-back, 24, is undergoing his medical today after a £6.4million fee was agreed with Torino.

    Lyanco is seen as a replacement for Jannik Vestergaard, who joined Leicester earlier this month for £15m.

    Meanwhile, Che Adams is relishing the chance to fill Danny Ings’ boots this season.

    Talisman Ings left Saints for Aston Villa in a deal that could be worth up to £30m earlier this summer.

    Adam Armstrong was recruited from Blackburn as his replacement for £15m and both he and Adams have linked up well in Southampton’s opening two games this season.

    Asked how he is handling the responsibility to stepping up now Ings has gone, Adams replied: “I buzz off it. 

    "I am a striker that has been here for a couple of years now."

    They’re four of the biggest names in football – but who is the best striker in the world right now?

    Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski and Romelu Lukaku have all been in red hot form since the turn of the year and here’s a look at the numbers they average per 90 minutes.

    The 28-year-old joined Chelsea for the second time in a £97.5million deal from Inter earlier this month.

    And in doing so he became the second most expensive Premier league player of all time behind £100million man Jack Grealish.

    The Belgian forward fired Inter Milan to their first Serie A title since 2011 last season, and also won the FA Cup with Chelsea in 2012 in his brief first spell at Stamford Bridge.

    He also won a Belgian title with Anderlecht in 2009.

    In terms of goals Lukaku averages less per game than Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland, but he does create more chance than both of the Bundesliga strikers and Harry Kane.

    Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea’s staggering losses for the 2019/20 Premier League season have been revealed.

    Finances in England’s top flight took a huge hit when the coronavirus pandemic brought football to a standstill last year.

    There were no games in over three months as clubs scrambled to reshuffle their finances.

    And fans are only just getting used to returning to stadiums in numbers once again.

    As a result, there were massive drops in revenue for every Premier League club in the 19/20 campaign – bar the three teams promoted from the Championship.

    Excluding Aston Villa, Norwich and Sheffield United, who all benefitted from new lucrative TV deals, the other 17 teams saw a combined loss of £618MILLION due to Covid-19.

    According to Swiss Ramble, United had the biggest loss in the top flight, numbering £118m. Next in line were Tottenham with a deficit of £69m.

    Man City (-£57m), Arsenal (-£52m) and West Ham (-£51m) were also hit hard.

    Liverpool and Chelsea fared only slightly better, with respective losses of £43m and £40m.

    But Everton managed to drop just £2m.

    Old Trafford chief Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been reluctant to let the 20-year-old leave even temporarily over the past year.

    But now he is letting Williams depart for regular top-flight game-time.

    Williams said: “It’s a massive club and I like the way they play.

    “I’ve watched them over the years and seen how they play.

    “The club like to play out from the back and play football. That really inspired me to come here, and I think that the head coach can really improve me as a player.

    “Everyone has been so welcoming. I’ve really enjoyed my time here already and I can’t wait to meet everybody. I’ve just got a feeling it’ll be a good year.”

    Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers says Arsenal never made an enquiry or his bid for his England playmaker James Maddison this summer.

    It was suggested only last week that the Gunners had ‘pulled the plug’ on a deal for Maddison after having their latest offer knocked back.

    Arsenal apparently grew tired of having ‘multiple bids for the playmaker’ rejected and decided to wrap up a move for Martin Odegaard instead.

    Rodgers said: “There have been things this year around James, it was all paper talk, gossip, because there was never an enquiry, never a bid.”

    Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri insists he DROPPED Cristiano Ronaldo for yesterday's 2-2 Serie A draw with Udinese – amid suggestions the legend asked to be left out following transfer talk.

    Allegri told DAZN: "Ronaldo is feeling well. I had talked to him before the game, telling him he would start on the bench.

    "He made himself available, he did well when he entered the pitch, he also scored a goal, but it was disallowed."

    Ronaldo was introduced by Allegri on the hour – and in the 95th minute he ripped his shirt off to celebrate after heading what he thought was a winner.

    But VAR ruled out the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar's goal for offside.

    Ronaldo, 36, has just one year remaining on his £25million-a-year contract and in recent weeks has been linked with a move.

    ENGLISH clubs will find out their Champions League Group Stage opponents when the draw is made in Istanbul on Thursday.

    Chelsea will be eager to see who they’ll begin their defence against, while Manchester United, City and Liverpool are set to be in the mix once again.

    The four Premier League clubs are bound to be among the favourites.

    But there will be tough tests along the way.

    Chelsea find themselves in Pot 1 as reigning champions, alongside Prem winners Manchester City.

    While Man United and Liverpool will be drawn from Pot 2.

    The Blues and Man City may feel like they have an advantage, but Pots 1 and 2 are both full to the brim with dangerous opposition.

    Thomas Tuchel’s side, as well as Pep Guardiola’s, could even draw the German’s former side Paris Saint-Germain from Pot 2.

    Arsenal are reportedly now open to offers for TEN PLAYERS this month, including captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    Gunners’ skipper Aubameyang only signed a new contract with the North London outfit in September 2020.

    But according to The Telegraph, the Gabon international – who tested positive for coronavirus before the opening game of the season and has not featured so far as a result – is now considered to be one of TEN players Arsenal are interested in receiving bids for.

    The rest of the potential departures are Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Lucas Torreira, Willian, Reiss Nelson, Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette.

    However, unlike some of the fringe players looking to be sold over the next week or so, Aubameyang’s extortionate wages could prevent him from securing a move.

    The 32-year-old earns around £250,000 a week, so there are only a select number of clubs who would be able to take him on.

    It was reported last week that Barcelona were eyeing a swap deal for Aubameyang, with ex-Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho heading the other way.

    Arsenal are hoping to recoup some of the money they have invested this summer, with Arteta’s side currently top of the Premier League’s spending charts.

    PSV Eindhoven have told Tottenham it will cost them £40million to re-sign Noni Madueke – two years after the England Under-21 international left them for nothing.

    Madueke, 19, is wanted back at his former club after a lethal start to the season, according to the Mirror.

    The attacking midfielder scored twice in a 4-0 romp against Ajax in the Johan Cruyff Shield in Amsterdam and has been on target three more times in six Eredivisie and Champions League games.

    Ten clubs have made contact with PSV about Madueke’s availability – including Spurs, Leicester and Wolves.

    And they have all been told that the bidding will have to start at £40million.

    Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Juventus was again thrust into doubt as he was left on the bench for Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Udinese.

    Speculation has continued to surround Ronaldo this summer and he has been linked with old club Manchester United, Manchester City and PSG.

    Reports suggest that Ronaldo had requested to be benched for the game and he has apparently now asked his club to sanction a move away from Turin.

    The news will have clubs licking their lips at the prospect of landing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who has less than a year remaining on his current contract.

    Midfielder Granit Xhaka confirmed he’s signed a new Arsenal contract, reassuring fans he will ‘give everything’ he can to get the club back on the right track after two Prem straight defeats.

    Xhaka had looked destined to join Serie A giants Roma earlier this summer but Jose Mourinho’s side were priced out of a move and the 28-year-old midfielder has decided to commit his future to the Gunners, signing a new long-term deal.

    He told Arsenal’s media team: “‘I’m very happy I’m still here.

    “I’ve signed a new contract of course and I want to give back, first of all to our staff, and then after to our fans, and they know I will give everything – in every game and every training session.

    “So yeah, I think we have to show that as a team soon.”

    Xherdan Shaqiri is set to end a frustrating period at Anfield by joining Lyon on a permanent basis.

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano told Sky Sports: "Yes, it's a done deal. They have an agreement in principle with Olympic Lyon for Xherdan Shaqiri.

    "He had an agreement on personal terms for two weeks with Lyon on a three-year contract. So Shaqiri wanted to leave, wanting to try something new. And that's why now he's joining Lyon.

    "Liverpool will receive around £10million – everything has been completed in the last 24 hours. The player is now going to France to sign his contract to complete the medical."

    Tottenham could be set for a late splurge before the summer transfer deadline with the club reportedly on the hunt for five new players.

    Adama Traore is rumoured to be among the names on Nuno Espirito Santos' target list with the former Wolves gaffer pondering a £40million swoop.

    Meanwhile, Spurs, who play Watford next, are rumoured to be mulling over a swap deal to bring Weston McKennie to North London.

    It is thought the North London side are interested in offering Tanguy Ndombele to Juve in exchange for the American.

    Spurs are also thought to have their eye on PSV playmaker Noni Madueke, as well as Lyon star Houssem Aouar.

    And reports in France claim Tottenham are in the running to buy Metz midfielder, Pape Matar Sarr.

    Cash-strapped Barcelona could sign former Newcastle man Luuk de Jong.

    The 30-year-old is poised to leave Sevilla before the end of the transfer window, with reports suggesting a number of clubs are chasing his signature.

    Spanish outlet Sport claim the striker has 'been offered' to the Catalan club, with West Ham and PSV also keen on a deal.

    And he is now set to leave the club following the arrival of striker Rafa Mir from Wolves earlier this summer.

    Barcelona are reportedly interested in a deal despite their dire financial situation, with current frontman Martin Braithwaite linked with a move away from Camp Nou.

    Cristiano Ronaldo could still end up at Tottenham this summer, according to Tutti Convocati.

    Juventus boss Max Allegri is reportedly keen to sell the striker, and CR7's omission from the starting line-up against Udinese could hint he is on his way out.

    Ronaldo is also said to be keen on a move, having been linked with PSG and both Manchester clubs.

    Celtic centre-back Leo Hjelde is on the verge of a move to the Premier League.

    He's set to join Leeds United before the transfer window closes at the end of the month according to The Athletic's Phil Hay.

    At just 17 years old the Norwegian defender is one for the future for Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa.

    The defender has never played a competitive game for Celtic but spent the second half of last season on loan at Ross County.

    And former Staggies boss John Hughes labelled him "the next Virgil van Dijk" during his loan spell at the club.

    He's set to join up with Leeds United's under-23's squad after the clubs agreed a fee for the youngster.

    Philippe Coutinho still has Liverpool 'very deeply' in his heart, his agent said.

    It comes amid speculation his former club are interested in re-signing the Brazilian.

    And Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian hinted the playmaker would not rule out returning to Liverpool, as he still values the club.

    Joorabchian told Sky Sports: "I think Liverpool lies very, very deeply in his heart, he was a big fan of them throughout the [last] campaign.

    "He was wishing for them to win the title and he has a very strong affinity there so I think it will be very difficult for him to go to a direct competitor of Liverpool from a personal standpoint."

    Southampton are close to finalising a deal for Torino centre-back Lyanco as they tie up a replacement for Jannik Vestergaard.

    Tuttosport report that Torino chief Davide Vagnati is ‘sending him to Southampton’.

    The report states the Premier League side will pay around £6.4m plus bonuses for the centre back, and the deal could include a percentage on future sales as well.

    The newspaper explains that Torino had initially wanted £6.8m for their man, but the player made it clear he wants to leave Serie A, so the club have elected to take the offer in front of them.

    Patrick Vieira is planning a late summer swoop for Eddie Nketiah in a bid to beef up Crystal Palace’s attacking ranks.

    The Athletic claims the Eagles gaffer is set to rival an unnamed German side in for the services of the Gunners striker.

    Nketiah, 22, who has been sidelined by an ankle injury, has ten months left on his current contract which expires in June 2022.

    Reports claim the player, who captained England at the Euros Under 21 Championships, is yet to commit to a contract extension with the North London outfit.

    Athletic reports the Emirates side, who face West Brom in a league cup clash before a daunting trip to Man City, are keen on agreeing to a new deal with the forward.

    Everton have had a transfer approach for defender Nathan Patterson rejected by Rangers.

    The Blues want to strengthen in that position before the close of the transfer window and have moved for the 19-year-old.

    It is unclear at this stage if Everton plan to return with a second bid for the Scottish defender.

    Patterson would be seen as one for the future and Everton have been looking for Seamus Coleman’s long-term successor for a number of seasons.

    West Ham have met Chelsea's £26million asking price for defender Kurt Zouma but the defender is holding out for a 'significant pay rise', according to reports.

    And Zouma, who is also being eyed by Tottenham, has been identified as one of West Ham's primary targets as they look to add to the centre of their defence.

    According to The Athletic, David Moyes' side have now met Chelsea's asking price for the 26-year-old, with the two London teams reaching a 'verbal agreement'.

    However, the Frenchman is said to be demanding an increase in wages from his current £125,000 a week pay packet.

    This could present a problem for the Hammers as it would mean they have to make him their highest paid player.
