Pedro Neto is determined to seal a move from Wolves to Arsenal this transfer window having long admired the Gunners. However, a deal is contingent on the north Londoners freeing up financial wiggle room, with the club in discussions with Nice over taking Nicolas Pepe off their hands.
Manchester United are keen on signing a goalkeeper who is comfortable with the ball at his feet before the transfer deadline. While Eintracht Frankfurt have denied that the Red Devils have made contact for Kevin Trapp, an approach is expected in the coming days. Borussia Monchengladbach’s Yann Sommer is also on Man Utd’s radar.
Meanwhile, Man Utd are continuing their pursuit of Frenkie de Jong despite signing Casemiro. Barcelona have knocked back a loan offer from Bayern Munich for the midfielder.
Chelsea are edging closer to a deal to sign Anthony Gordon from Everton, but the Toffees want to receive either Conor Gallagher or Armando Broja on loan as part of the transfer.
However, Chelsea’s hopes of signing Wesley Fofana are fading after Leicester knocked back a third bid for the defender, and the Blues are considering moving on to other targets instead.
Chelsea have also joined Tottenham and Juventus in the pursuit of Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo. The Italy international picked up a shoulder injury at the weekend but the trio, particularly Spurs, remain keen on completing a deal regardless.
In terms of outgoings at Spurs, Japhet Tanganga is wanted by Nottingham Forest as a move to AC Milan continues to stall. Sergio Reguilon is also wanted by City Ground chiefs, though he would prefer a move elsewhere.
