Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd eye Antony and Allan Saint-Maximin with Chelsea confident over Anthony Gordon


Bayern eyeing up De Jong

If Frenkie de Jong leaves Barcelona this summer it will be a transfer for the ages. Truly one that lives up to the ‘saga’ billing.

Bayern Munich are now reportedly interested in signing the Manchester United and Chelsea target.

United have spent all summer trying to get a deal done for De Jong who is reluctant to leave the Catalan giants until he receives his deferred wages. The Red Devils had agreed a price for the midfielder but the move stalled.

That gave Chelsea hopes of hijacking the deal but progress for the Blues has also been slow.

Sport are now saying that the German champions are keen to take the 25-year-old Dutch midfielder on loan with a view to buying him permanently next summer.

Where will De Jong be playing his football on September 2nd? It’s anyone’s guess at the minute.

Ampadu moving back to Italy?

Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu is closing in on leaving the club as Serie A side Spezia have reached an agreement in principle with the Blues over a move for him.

Ampadu has attracted interest from a host of clubs in Italy, where he played on loan for Venezia last term with Empoli, Sassuolo and Spezia are all keen on signing him in the current window.

According to Italian daily Il Secolo XIX, Spezia are set to win the race for the Chelsea man’s services and have reached an unofficial agreement with the Blues over a move.

Ampadu’s departure may in part come down to whether Chelsea can get a deal for Leicester’s Wesley Fofana over the line. If they can Ampadu may be suplus to requirements for Thomas Tuchel but if not he might have to remain at Stamford Bridge to bolster the squad.

Leeds still in the hunt for Sarr

Leeds are still hopeful of bringing Ismaila Sarr to Elland Road before the end of the transfer window.

It was thought that the Watford forward was heading to the Midlands to join up with Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa after the clubs agreed on a £25m deal but Villa have since moved away from the deal.

That brings Leeds back into play and they may see Sarr as an ideal replacement for Dan James who is currently being courted by Tottenham.

Liverpool lost 2-1 to Erik ten Hag’s side as their winless start to the Premier League season stretched to three matches.

Sancho broke the deadlock in the 16th minute, selling Milner and keeper Alisson before placing the ball into the corner beyond Van Dijk.

In the aftermath of the goal, Milner could be seen screaming into the face of Van Dijk as the pair exchanged heated verbals.

But Klopp has played down any idea that it shows discontent within the squad, insisting it was merely something which occurred during the heat of the moment.

Transfer interest makes Neto work harder

Wolves forward Pedro Neto says he is thriving off the interest he is getting from other clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain.

All three have been linked to the Portugal winger at various points during this window but now Arsenal are reportedly to favourite to earn his signature.

“I always like to hear this sort of stuff but I’m focused on my job here because I’m feeling very good here,” Neto said to The Times earlier in the summer.

“The things you hear makes you work even more, it’s good for you and your mentality to know that people know your value. It gives me more hunger to work harder.”

Juventus reach agreement with Marseille over Milik

Sky Sport Italy report that Juventus have reached a verbal agreement with Marseille to sign forward Arkadiusz Milik.

The Serie A behmoths will pay €2million to loan the 28-year-old Polish striker for the season, with an option to buy set at a further €8m.

This signing could put Memphis Depay’s exit from Barcelona in jeopardy. Depay is ready to terminate his Barça contract but was waiting for Juve to decide which striker they were going to go with.

It looks as though Milik has been given the nod meaning Depay may have to remain at the Spanish club. In turn that could result in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s potential move to Chelsea heating up as Barcelona are keen to offload players this summer.

Liverpool no longer a collective but a group of individuals as concerns deepen

Jurgen Klopp claimed “an equaliser wouldn’t have been the biggest surprise” at Old Trafford, but it was perhaps that very comment that most raised eyebrows. Liverpool never really looked like scoring again.

They didn’t have the bite. They didn’t have the intensity. They failed to match Manchester United’s aggression for the first time in a long time.

That is why “concern” is now coursing through the club. It may not yet be a crisis, as this first defeat of the season still left them without a win, but there are a lot of issues to fix. Maybe there’s one big issue?
