Transfer news live - Latest updates from Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea

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.

New boy Donny van de Beek scored for the Red Devils, but the loss saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admit they need fresh blood, and Luke Shaw lead calls to Ed Woodward for reinforcements.

That came as Tottenham sealed two transfers, with players who had both been linked to United.

Sergio Reguilon, the Spain international left-back, and Gareth Bale both sealed moves to Spurs from Real Madrid - having been spoken about previously by United chiefs.

Dele Alli could leave Spurs, with PSG circling after he was again left out at Southampton.

Liverpool too were active, landing world class midfield operator Thiago Alcantara before shocking fans with the swift acquisition of Diogo Jota from Wolves.

Now a number of players' futures are uncertain, with a stacked midfield and frontline.

Elsewhere, Chelsea are closing in on a new goalkeeper - and Kepa Arrizabalaga's latest error will only have persuaded them that they are right to do so.

Wolves are closing in on Barcelona's Nelson Semedo, while Arsenal continue to push for Lyon's Houssem Aouar - the question is whether they can get funds together to get a deal over the line.

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.

Barcelona's Semedo exit

Barcelona defender Nelson Semedo is closing on a £29million move to Wolves.

Ronald Koeman made the Portuguese international available for transfer as he seeks to raise funds - having been banned by La Liga from signing players amid Los Cules financial issues.

That has put a block on their interest in Gini Wijnaldum.

But now Semedo is set for a switch to Molineux, where he will replace Matt Doherty, who joined Spurs.

“I am pretty sure Phil is going to make a good season. He knows he made a mistake. Stop giving too much advice to other people.

“If every one of us put the same high expectations on ourselves as we put on others, it would be better.

“Stop giving advice to the other ones, look at what you have done in the past and when you demand to the other ones, and stick to what you have to [do], our society will be better.”

Brewster claims

Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has predicted Rhian Brewster to leave the Reds this month - but tear it up elsewhere.

Brewster spent last season on loan at Championship outfit Swansea and needs a move this summer to ensure regular Premier League game time.

Sheffield United and Crystal Palace are both interested in snapping up the young Liverpool forward, and Enrique believes this would be greatly beneficial to him.

On Instagram, Enrique wrote: "I believe it will be a great option [going to a team like Sheffield United] for him but for me it will be clear. One - on loan 1 season.

"Two - selling him but with a buy out clause because if he does really well there. Look at Danny Ings now What are your thoughts on this?"

Lingard to Spurs?

Jesse Lingard moving to Tottenham this transfer window hinges on whether or not Dele Alli leaves.

The Manchester United ace has been octracised from the group by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After hiring Mino Raiola as his agent, Lingard has been looking at the exit door at Old Trafford.

But Tottenham have emerged as shock contenders for his signature in the past few days.

But the 21-year-old has been branded a back-up target, with Kalidou Koulibaly the main target going into the final weeks in the transfer window.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, City have made Koulibaly their priority.

However, Napoli are tricky negotiators while there is still bad blood over the failure to sign Jorginho and Kounde is a back-up target.

Rennes boss confirms Mendy's Chelsea move

Rennes manager Julien Stephan has confirmed Edouard Mendy’s transfer to Chelsea is imminent.

Man Utd told to replace Solskjaer with Bielsa

Manchester United must replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa.

That’s according to Tony Cascarino, who was speaking on talkSPORTafter United’s 3-1 to Crystal Palace in their Premier League opener on Saturday.

“I think Solskjaer got a lot wrong yesterday because he should have made changes a lot earlier,” Cascarino said. “There was no urgency.

“I was watching Leeds in the earlier game, and then watching Man United at 5:30pm, and I was thinking, ‘maybe United do need something different’. Not players, but maybe they need Bielsa.”

Chelsea 'complete' Mendy signing

Chelsea have completed the signing of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and will unveil the player next week, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The talented shot-stopper has shone for Rennes and will arrive at Stamford Bridge to become Frank Lampard's new No1.

Current first-choice goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has made a number of high-profile errors to lose the trust of his manager, including against Liverpool in the 2-0 defeat on Sunday.

Juventus chief says Suarez not a target

Club director Fabio Paratici has told Sky Sport Italia Juventus are not interested in signing Luis Suarez from Barcelona.

Suarez, 33, has been heavily-linked with a move to the Serie A giants this window but his lack of an Italian passport has proved a sticking point.

"Luis Suarez is not on our list. He's not a target for Juventus. He'll not have the Italian passport during the transfer window so we can't sign him. We considered Suarez as an option but he was not close to joining."

The 29-year-old has been linked with moves to Manchester City and Manchester United but the Serie A club are believed to want over £70million for his services.

Gattuso said: “He’s a serious guy. If he’ll leave I’ll be sad because Koulibaly is a top player... it’s a difficult moment in football and you’ve to consider important bids. But if he’ll stay, I’ll be happy”.

Wolves yet to strike personal terms with Semedo

Wolves are closing in on a deal to sign right-back Nelson Semedo from Barcelona, but personal terms are yet to be agreed with the Portuguese, reports Sky Sports.

The Catalans are willing to part ways with Semedo as they aim to raise transfer funds and manager Ronald Koeman assembles a new squad.

Meanwhile, Wolves are keen on a new right-back after selling Matt Doherty to Tottenham last month.

Semedo to swap Barca for Wolves

Wolves are closing in on a £32m deal for Barcelona full back Nelson Semedo. The 26-year-old could complete a deal in the next 48 hours as Nuno Espirito Santo continues to boost his defensive options.

Semedo, capped 13 times by Portugal, is seen as a direct replacement for Republic of Ireland international Matt Doherty who joined Tottenham in a £14m deal last week.

Semedo, who has made 134 appearances is a casualty of Barca boss Ronald Koeman’s sets about overhauling his squad at the Nou Camp.

Barca are trying to hold out for their 40million Euro valuation(£36.6m) but look likely to accept a deal at a slightly lower figure.

Semedo will become Nuno’s fifth signing of the summer following on from Fabio Silva, Fernando Marcal, Vitor Ferreira and Ki-Jana Hoever.

Teenage defender Hoever has signed a five-year deal at Molineux after completing a move from Liverpool which could end up costing Wolves £13.5m.

But they’re not short of cash after striker Diego Jota made a surprise switch to Liverpool in a |£41m move earlier in the week.

Guardiola to sign on at City

PEP GUARDIOLA has handed Manchester City a major boost before Monday’s Premier League opener – by declaring his desire to sign a new deal.

Guardiola, who has taken City to record-breaking heights in his four seasons in charge, has entered the final year of his current contract.

The Catalan has never stayed at a club longer than four years, meaning his City tenure is now the longest of his glittering managerial career.

But Guardiola, 49, has eased any fears City fans may have had about him waving farewell at the end of this season, by revealing his desire to extend his stay at the club - but only if he earns it.

“I would love to stay longer here,” said Guardiola, whose side travel to Woves tonight. “It’s a place I love to be, but I have to deserve.

“This club achieved standards in the last decade but we have to maintain that and I have to deserve it.

“I’m going to see if I deserve it this season, in terms of how the club goes forward and improves.

“I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t feel the fire or the desire to play good.

“I still want to help the players avoid making mistakes and still I have the passion to do it - maybe more than ever. I want to try to be together and have a good season.”

Chamerblain going nowhere

Liverpool have insisted they have no intention of selling Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer.

Wolves have been linked with the 27-year-old midfielder after the arrival of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich at Anfield.

But Oxlade-Chamberlain is very happy at Liverpool, has three years left on his current deal and the club will not let him go and will rebuff any approach as they see him as an important figure in the squad.

Oxlade-Chamberlain played in key games last season in their title success and also in the Champions League which underlines Jurgen Klopp’s faith in the England star.

But Oxlade-Chamberlain is vital because of his goals from midfield, he was Liverpool’s top scoring midfielder with eight in all competitions last season which makes him different to the other midfield options and why he remains an integral part of Klopp’s squad.

Alli heading for Spurs exit

Dele Alli’s Tottenham future is up in the air after he was again dropped by Jose Mourinho – and Paris Saint-Germain enquired about his availability.

The England star was left out of the travelling squad for yesterday’s win at Southampton and told to improve his performances.

Alli, 24, was hooked at half-time in the opening defeat and also did not travel for last week’s Europa League tie in Bulgaria. Mourinho claimed he would “probably” return for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup tie at Leyton Orient – but refused to say if the attacking midfield could be loaned out.

“I am not responsible for the market, I don’t know how to answer to you your question in relation to that,” said the Portuguese. “The only thing I can say is I left eight players behind, they stayed training this morning because they are a big group and Dele is amongst these players.

“You could see our team, I cannot start with all of them and I cannot have a bench without defenders or the midfielders. We have too many players for some positions and some of them are paying the price for this.

“Everything is a puzzle so, in these two matches Dele stayed out, probably Tuesday he will play and others will stay out.”

Spurs not finished yet

Jose Mourinho says Tottenham will continue attempting to strengthen their squad until the end of the transfer window following his side’s impressive 5-2 win over Southampto.

A sensational four goals by Son Heung-min from four Harry Kane assists did the damage at St Mary’s, with Kane himself grabbing the other and Danny Ings netting a brace for the Saints.

It caps a fantastic two days for the club after they confirmed the signings of left-back Sergio Reguilon and forward Gareth Bale from Real Madrid on Friday

They join Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty through the door this summer, and Mourinho hailed Spurs for their business so far - before declaring he still wants more before the window closes next month.

“Gareth when fit is one of the top players in Europe,” he said. “Sergio was amazing last season. If you ask me if I am happy to have these players, yes I am.”

When asked whether he would like further additions, he added: “Yes. For a season like this we need a good squad and we need two players for each position,” suggesting another striker may be top of his wishlist.

Morrison on the move

Ravel Morrison has found yet another new club with the former Manchester United midfielder set to sign for ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands.

He will complete his move tomorrow after a medical having most recently been on the books at Sheffield United.

Telles responds to United links

Alex Telles has responded to speculation linking him with Man Utd by stating he is only focused on the task at hand with Porto.

The left-back is said to have agreed terms on a five-year deal with United which would see him move to Old Trafford in a £17million transfer.

Speaking after Porto’s 3-1 win over Braga, Telles told Sport TV: “I’m a guy who focuses a lot on work, people believe what they want, say what they want in the newspapers, but the most important thing is to be focused on my work.

“You know that and so do my teammates, whatever happens, I’m focused on the club, I’m here, I’m playing.”

He added: ”I have people who work for me, I just have to focus on what my job is. If I knew anything, I wouldn’t need to have people working for me.

“I have people who take care of that and I have to focus on my work.”

PSG 'open talks' for Alli

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly opened talks with Tottenham regarding a potential transfer for Dele Alli.

The forward was left out of Tottenham’s squad for the trip to Southampton on Sunday sparking fresh doubts over his future at the club.

Alli was hauled off at half-time during Spurs’ defeat to Everton last week and did not travel to Bulgaria for the Europa League clash with Lokomotiv Plovdiv in midweek.

His omission from the fixture at St. Marys has raised further questions over his relationship with boss Jose Mourinho amid rumours of a rift.

According to The Telegraph , PSG are now hopeful of capitalising on the situation by snapping up Alli before the window slams shut.

Alli left out of Spurs trip to St Marys

Dele Alli’s future at Tottenham has been plunged into fresh doubt after he was left out of the squad to face Southampton.

The 24-year-old did not even make the trip to the south coast amid reports of a rift with boss Jose Mourinho.

Reports had suggested Alli may be included in the loan deal taking Gareth Bale to Spurs, which have since not been proven to be true, but his omission certainly raises a few question marks.

Arsenal not in Lacazette contract talks

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has admitted the club are yet to open contract talks with Alexandre Lacazette.

The French forward has just under two years remaining on his current deal and Arsenal were thought to be keen on tying him down to an extension.

The Gunners were given an anxious wait over the future of captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer after he entered the final 12 months of his contract.

But despite Lacazette edging towards that mark Arteta says discussions with the 29-year-old are not a priority.

“At the moment, we haven’t started any negotiations,” Arteta said. “We have a lot of things still to do in this market and at the moment we are focusing on those things.”

Pirlo admits Suarez deal "very difficult"

Andrea Pirlo has admitted Luis Suarez’s proposed move to Juventus is in doubt due to a problem with the striker’s passport.

Personal terms have already been agreed between club and player but the Uruguayan is having issues gaining a right to stay and work in Italy.

Pirlo said: “It is very difficult for Suárez to arrive, especially because of how long it will take to get the passport.

“I know it will take a long time, so I see it difficult for us to be our centre forward.“

Juventus are now reportedly lining up Roma’s Edin Dzeko as a possible alternative.
