    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."

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    His season-long loan from Manchester United is expected to be completed today.

    The left-back founds game time difficult to come by at Old Trafford last season and with Alex Telles to return from injury he would have found it tough to play this season due, with Luke Shaw also playing well.

    Jacobone adds Ataganga would also receive a significant commission, too.

    He has spent the last two years out on loan, with Roma and then Genoa.

    Zappacosta, 29, re-emerged in Chelsea's pre-season campaign this time around, even coming off the bench against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in the Mind Series.

    But having not been selected for either of Thomas Tuchel's matchday squads in the Premier League this term, he is set to depart on a permanent basis.

    Real Madrid sold Martin Odegaard to Arsenal to help fund a move for Paul Pogba, according to Spanish outlet ABC.

    Los Blancos also view the Frenchman as a long-term replacement for Luka Modric, who is getting closer to retirement.

    And with Pogba's contract set to expire next summer it is possible Carlo Ancelotti's side could make a swoop for the midfielder.

    Manchester City are set to make a 'final move' to try and sign Harry Kane this week, according to reports.

    The Premier League champions have been chasing Kane all summer, with manager Pep Guardiola making little effort to hide his admiration for the forward.

    They have so far been left frustrated in their pursuit, having had a £100million offer turned down earlier in the transfer window.

    According to the Telegraph, however, City will 'table another bid' for Kane this week.

    Although Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is unlikely to deviate from his initial asking price of between £150million and £160m.

    Manchester United drew 1-1 with Southampton at St Mary’s thanks to Mason Greenwood’s equaliser, which cancelled out Fred’s own-goal.

    Tottenham beat Wolves 1-0 at Molineux with a goal by Dele Alli, who beat Jose Sa from the penalty spot.

    This match marked the return of Harry Kane, who came off the bench amid rumours suggesting Manchester City want to sign him.

    Chelsea won the London derby against Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates following goals by record-signing Romelu Lukaku, who made his debut, and Reece James.

    Meanwhile, United have received a major boost in their bid to sign Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland.

    That is because Haaland’s £64million release clause kicks in once the mid-season transfer window opens in January, according to Marca.

    It had previously been thought that the star centre-forward's cut-price clause would not come into effect until the summer of 2022.

    The Norway international is currently being valued by Dortmund at a fee in the region of £130m but he could potentially be moving on for less than half that price.

    Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo was dropped to the bench for Juventus’ Serie A opener against Udinese after reportedly asking not to start.

    Ronaldo has been strongly linked with a move away from Juve this summer but is yet to find a suitor.

    According to Fabrizio Romano, the star forward requested not to be included this time around as he hunts for a transfer in the next few days.

    Romano reports that the Portugal international is hoping to ‘find a solution’ in the transfer market.

    But the Italian giants have yet to receive a bid for the United legend.

    Former Liverpool star Danny Murphy has questioned Arsenal's transfer policy after signing Aaron Ramsdale for £24million.

    Murphy told the Daily Mail: "Aaron Ramsdale is decent with his feet. He is also a relatively young goalkeeper who is still learning.

    "I am surprised, given Arsenal’s limited budget, that they have invested in a goalkeeper because you’d have thought Bernd Leno was going to be their No1.

    "Maybe priority should have been given to other areas of the team. It was only a year ago that they let Emiliano Martinez join Aston Villa.

    "Ramsdale may go straight into the first team because £30m is a significant outlay – but it wasn’t a deal I would have put top of my to-do list"

    Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admitted that the circumstances are “really difficult and probably unprecedented” after the loss to Chelsea and a poor start to the Premier League but insists nothing’s over yet.

    Arteta said: “One of the difficult moments that you have to go through. The circumstances are really difficult and probably unprecedented. Feeling sorry for ourselves doesn’t help though.

    “You can always do things better in a football match. In the first half we had some difficulties. It took us a long time to regain the ball in the areas we needed. When we did we looked a real threat.

    “I certainly see a team that in the second half they kept trying they never gave up and their attitude was exceptional. Something that is clear is that they never gave up. Even the crowd tried to push them and we tried to fight until the end”

    Barcelona signing Memphis Depay believes his Manchester United stint wasn’t a success because he failed to adapt during his first year under Louis van Gaal and didn’t get opportunities from Jose Mourinho.

    Memphis told El Periodico: “I’ve thought a lot about why it went wrong. The first season I had to adapt and it didn’t go well compared to my time at PSV [Eindhoven].

    “I lost a bit of confidence and I lost the confidence of Van Gaal and his staff.

    “It was hard for me. The following season I felt like I had more experience, but they changed the coach.

    “Jose Mourinho came and I fought to get into the team but I think the idea of giving me a chance was never in his head. He never gave me an opportunity. Never.

    “I went to his office but it changed nothing. It was a very difficult period, I felt that I was training well and the players themselves did not understand it.

    “[Paul] Pogba and Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] told me: “Why don’t you ever play?” For me that was the confirmation that I had no chance. And I realised that I didn’t want to be in a big club without playing”
