Transfer Deadline

Its transfer deadline for most clubs with the exception of those in La Liga but teams are busy in  the market.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to join Liverpool after the two clubs agreed on a £40m deal .

The 24-year-old, who rejected a move to Chelsea on Tuesday after a fee had been agreed, will join Liverpool on a five-year contract worth £120,000 a week which is slightly lower than £180,000 offered so that he can stay at Arsenal.

The midfielder is expected to have a medical before flying to Malta with England on Thursday, before the summer transfer window closes at 23:00 BST.

Philippe Coutinho’s departure from Liverpool has forever hit a snag.

Liverpool are seeing intense interest from Barcelona for their talisman.

Brazil coach Tite has told Philippe Coutinho to go where he will be happy amid Barcelona’s ongoing interest in the Liverpool attacker.

France – Kylian Mbappe’s much anticipated loan (with obligation to buy) to PSG will be confirmed and look out for any more departures from the club as they look to comply with financial fair play. Meanwhile their arch rivals Marseille are still desperate for a striker. Ex Fulham flop Konstantinos Mitroglu (currently at Benfica) is the latest number 9 in the frame.

Germany – Kevin Kampl of Bayer Leverkusen is set to join RB Leipzig ahead of their Champions League campaign. At only 26 he would be one of the oldest members of the squad. Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches is on his way to Swansea on loan.

Italy – Inter could be busy. They still want a centre-back (Man City’s Eliaquim Mangala their top target) & young winger Yann Karamoh is expected to join them from N’Golo Kante’s old club Caen. Meanwhile ex Manchester United winger Nani is being linked with Lazio and Verona want Wilfried Bony.

Spain – Here, the deadline isn’t until tomorrow. All eyes on Barcelona and that Neymar money. Thomas Lemar, Riyad Mahrez, Paulo Dybala and Angel Di Maria are names which keep cropping up in Spanish media.

Manchester City remain very keen to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal today.

So far, City have still only made the one bid (of £50m) for Sanchez, contrary to reports of a second bid.

Tottenham have moved ahead of Chelsea in the race to sign Fernando Llorente from Swansea City.

Chelsea have been close for weeks now to a deal for the Spanish striker, who has a strong relationship with Blues manager Antonio Conte.

But Tottenham have come from nowhere to have an offer accepted by Swansea and the move is appealing to Llorente.

Chelsea are expected to make a counter offer and the 32-year-old’s destination is said to be too close to call.

If he ends up at Tottenham, it is possible that Spurs forward Vincent Janssen will leave the club on loan.
