Barcelona have also announced that midfielder Arda Turan is free to leave, having failed to cement a first team place since moving from Atlético Madrid in 2015. Manchester United manager José Mourinho is believed to be ardent Arda admirer.In the market for a central defender after Leonardo Bonucci left for AC Milan, Juventus have enquired about the possibility of luring Gary Cahill to Turin from Chelsea, but the Mirror reports that any deal would be dependent on Virgil van Dijk joining the Premier League champions from Southampton. Juventus are more keen on Schalke defender Benedikt Höwedes, who is also wanted by Liverpool. Meanwhile at Arsenal, the future of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains as up in the air as a light airplane trailing a “Wenger out” banner. Out of contract next summer, Chamberlain could spend the rest of this season at the Emirates before leaving on a free transfer, but his current employers may be tempted to cash in on interest from Liverpool and Chelsea.Nacer Chadli’s mooted move from West Brom to Swansea City as a replacement for Gylfi Sigurdsson has hit a £25m-sized snag that the Welsh club seem reluctant to overcome, while Sky Sports say RB Leipzig’s young Scottish winger, Oliver Burke, has been at the Hawthorns to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms.Reports elsewhere have Crystal Palace readying a bid for Tottenham Hotspur reserve goalkeeper Michel Vorm. Palace have previously been linked with Roma goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski and West Ham’s Adrian, but Vorm is believed to be Frank De Boer’s preferred target and would almost certainly be amenable to a move after being restricted to just 11 appearances for Spurs last season. Having signed Paulo Gazzaniga from Southampton as back-up to Hugo Lloris between the sticks earlier this week, Tottenham might well be happy to let Vorm team up with his Dutch compatriot at Selhurst Park. Tottenham are also about to send their double-barrelled young American centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers to Sheffield United on loan. Share on Twitter To Germany, where glossy magazine reports suggest that Liverpool are preparing a late bid to take Renato Sanches on a season-long loan. The 20-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder had a fairly underwhelming maiden season with the German champions after joining from Benfica and had been linked with moves to Chelsea, Manchester United or AC Milan earlier this summer, only for his manager Carlo Ancelotti to announce he’d be staying put. According to yesterday’s edition of Kicker, it seems Sanches could be bound for Anfield in his quest to secure regular first team opportunities.Having convened in Monaco for yesterday’s Champions League draw, assorted bigwigs from Europe’s biggest clubs will have no better opportunity to meet up and discuss last-minute transfers ahead of next week’s window-unfriendly international break. Under pressure Barcelona officials are expected to talk turkey with their counterparts from Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund in their last-ditch attempts to get their hands on Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembélé and in the purely selfish interests of fatigued pedlars of transfer tittle-tattle everywhere, we wish all three delegations every success in their endeavours.

Already down to the bare bones at Birmingham City, Harry Redknapp still thinks Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing is “triffic” and is hoping to get him in at St Andrew’s so he can roll down his car window down and announce the good news to anyone who happens to be passing.And finally, a tweet comprising two “zipped mouth” emojis from Celtic’s supporter liaison officer hinted that the Scottish champions could unveil Patrick Roberts as a permanent signing later today. The 20-year-old Manchester City winger spent last season on loan at Celtic, scoring for them against his parent club in the Champions League and becoming a firm fan favourite as Brendan Rodgers’ side cantered to their sixth consecutive title. Talking in Monaco, where his club were drawn in a group with Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Anderlecht, Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell said “we are making progress with Patrick Roberts” before adding “there is nothing certain and we are respecting Manchester City’s position.”last_img read more
