Transfer news: Man Utd working on first deal, Jesus prefers one team, Raphinha latest | Football | Sport


The beginning of pre-season is sort of upon us and that may only mean one thing – the summer transfer window is well and truly in full swing. Throughout the country the elite teams are starting to make their moves as they appear to strengthen their squads and get rid of a few of their deadwood ahead of the brand new Premier League campaign.

Arsenal have been one among the busier sides of late, securing deals to sign Brazilian teen Marquinhos from Sao Paolo and Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira from Porto. They are usually not prone to stop there, nevertheless, and reports late on Tuesday night suggested that they had made a primary formal bid for Leeds star Raphinha. Watch this space.

Manchester United haven’t been quite so lively, and are yet to usher in their first major signing, much to the frustration of their weary fans. An entire host of current and former Ajax players are being tipped to affix and link back up with Erik ten Hag – Antony and Frenkie de Jong amongst them – but United must get a move on in the event that they don’t need to get left behind.

Chelsea could well bid farewell to Romelu Lukaku on Wednesday, with Inter Milan apparently agreeing a loan deal to re-sign their former striker and convey his Stamford Bridge hell to an end. And across London Tottenham could do some more business within the near future, with the signings of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma already within the bag.

And with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Newcastle also expected to splash more money before the top of the window, it’s fair to say there may be plenty happening to maintain a watch out for.
