The transfer window continues to gather speed and shows little sign of slowing down ahead of its October deadline.

The Premier League's return to action has shown managers in the top flight where their sides are short, and where they need improving - some with a stark need.

One of those is Manchester United, who saw their defence shredded by Crystal Palace. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisting his side were short and Luke Shaw calling for reinforcements, they are now set to be busy.

Liverpool signed Thiago and Diogo Jota over the last weekend - for the Reds, it is now about getting rid of a number of fringe players at premium prices. The question is whether they can find a buyer for the likes of Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri, Rhian Brewster and more.

Chelsea's latest Kepa calamity is set to see £22million splashed on Edouard Mendy as they look to upgrade between the sticks.

And what about Arsenal, still wheeling and dealing in a bid to bring in new midfielders. Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar top Mikel Arteta's wishlist, but he knows that, despite Emiliano Martinez's exit, he still needs to sell before he can buy.

Elsewhere, keep an eye on Luis Suarez, set to leave Barcelona and wanting to join Atletico Madrid.

There promises to be plenty more deals being done this week and we'll keep you up to date as they come in.

Join us throughout the day for all the latest transfer news and gossip.

Telles to Man Utd latest

United’s search for a new left-back has reportedly moved forward, with reports in Portugal suggesting ‘concrete progress’ has been made over a deal for Alex Telles.

The Brazil international, who is in the final year of his current deal at Porto, has been linked with an Old Trafford switch after United failed to land Sergio Reguilon.

According to A Bola, via the Manchester Evening News, Telles would cost United £18m, and the publication suggests he will sign a five-year deal worth roughly £3.7m per year.

Arsenal-Atletico - Partey-Torreira: The situation

Arsenal’s financial situation has ensured they need to sell in order to add further reinforcements, but there was hope from some quarters that a part-exchange deal might be able to solve one of their more pressing issues.

Arsenal have been keen on Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey throughout the summer, with the fee the only obstacle.

Partey has a release clause in the region of £45m, with Arsenal attempting to raise funds to meet the asking price, but reports in Spain over the last few days suggested Atletico’s interest in Arsenal man Lucas Torreira could help bring the fee down.

However they are only interested in a loan move for the Uruguay international and have no desire to see him included in a part-exchange deal for Partey.

For Atleti, Partey only leaves if his release clause is paid.

Rudiger future in doubt

Antonio Rudiger has been a regular presence around the Chelsea squad since joining in 2017, but the German defender could now leave before the October transfer deadline.

This is despite the centre-back reportedly playing a big part in his compatriots Timo Werner and Kai Havertz opting to move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Rudiger was an unused substitute for Chelsea’s Premier League opener at Brighton & Hove Albion, before being left out of the matchday squad entirely as the Blues lost at home to Liverpool in their second league game of the season.

According to the Mail, the omission casts doubt over Rudiger’s inclusion in the plans of head coach Lampard, and could prompt interest from other clubs before the transfer window shuts.

The 27-year-old has played 80 league games for Chelsea and more than 100 in all competitions, but talks are not believed to have begun with regards to extending his Blues contract, which expires in 2022.

“At the moment I have five centre-backs at the club. I can’t pick a squad which has three of them on the bench. That is the way it is,” Lampard said after the Liverpool game.

Liverpool's Rhian Brewster stance

Liverpool are contemplating Rhian Brewster’s next move - but aren’t completely ready to give up on the young striker.

However, Crystal Palace insist they have not made any move, despite reports of a big-money offer.

Brewster, 20, returned to Anfield this summer after a successful loan spell at Swansea City last term.

Welcome folks

Morning all.

Here we are again.

The transfer window remains open for two more weeks, and calls for Manchester United to strengthen further have intensified following their 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.

Donny van de Beek scored but was far from happy at his side’s slow play. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says they are “short” and Luke Shaw has called for reinforcements.

The question is whether they’ll get them - because they certainly look needed, particularly in defence.

Dele Alli could leave Spurs, with PSG circling after he was again left out at Southampton. His future is increasingly in question.

Wolves are set to splash £29million today on Nelson Semedo of Barcelona. Yep, you read that correctly.

And Luis Suarez wants to go to Atletico Madrid - will Barcelona stop him?
