While the Premier League is now in full swing, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea all remain active in this summer’s transfer market. At Arsenal, Mikel Arteta has hinted he is not done yet in the window with Yeremy Pino and Youri Tielemans their top targets – despite the clock ticking on a summer move for the Leicester star in particular.
Thomas Tuchel in particular is understood to be desperate to add to his squad, with a £45m bid Everton’s Anthony Gordon rejected. Frenkie de Jong and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remain key targets as a move for Cesare Casadei nears completion.
Spurs, meanwhile, have been frustrated in their attempts to sign Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo and could turn to James Garner as a surprise alternative, while Destiny Udogie closes in on a move. Antonio Conte’s clear-out also continues at a pace. Follow all the latest transfer news, gossip and rumours below!
Chelsea plan future Aubameyang talks
Chelsea will step up talks to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this weel, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The Barcelona striker is opening to returning to the Premier League, but will not push for a move.

Palace want Sarr
Crystal Palace are in talks with Watford over signing Ismaila Sarr from Watford, The Athletic reports.
Discussions have been ongoing for a few weeks but no official offer has been submitted by Palace, who failed in a bid to sign the player two years ago.
Palace are determined to sign Sarr before the window closes on September 1, and could face rival interest.
United told Caicedo is not for sale
Manchester United have been told that Moises Caicedo is not for sale.
The Brighton midfielder is one of a number of players being targeted by United boss Erik ten Hag.
But talkSPORT claim that the Seagull will not entertain a sale having already lost Yves Bissouma this summer.
Chelsea rival Arsenal for Pino
Chelsea are ready to rival Arsenal for Villarreal winger Yeremi Pino, claims Fabrizio Romano.
The Gunners have reportedly identified Pino as their latest attacking target after missing out on Raphinha.
Raphinha snubbed Arsenal for Chelsea, and then snubbed Chelsea for Barcelona.
The 19-year-old is attracting plenty of interest but it is the two London clubs reportedly leading the race.
Spurs lead race to sign Malinovskyi
Tottenham are now leading the race to sign Ruslan Malinovskyi from Atalanta.
TuttoAtalanta claims Spurs are looking into a loan deal for the Ukraine international, which may including an obligation to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
Malinvoskyi would be open to the move, should Spurs make an offer, while the club would prefer to raise funds with a sale.
Gordon wants Chelsea move
Anthony Gordon wants to leave Everton to join Chelsea, claims the Telegraph.
Chelsea have failed with a £45million bid for the 21-year-old, who is also wanted by Tottenham and Newcastle.
A fresh offer is expected, with the Toffees looking for more than £50m to even consider a sale.
Udogie’s first words
Destiny Udogie has told Tottenham fans what they can expect from him next season.
“It’s a big honour for me to be here, with this big team, a big club with a big history,” he told the club’s in-house medal.
“I can attack and defend. I like to show my quality to attack one v one, dribble… It’s an honour to play under a big coach like Antonio Conte. He knows football very well and I’m going to grow a lot.
“I think the Premier League is the biggest league in the world, the most difficult and I like challenges. I’m excited to start and, for me, to play for a big team like Tottenham is a big dream come true.
“I want to grow as much as I can, to understand the game a little bit more and obviously play my best season I can in Serie A.”
Done deal! Seventh heaven for Spurs
Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Destiny Odogie on a five-year deal, their seventh summer arrival.
The defender will spend the season back at Udinese on loan.
Pepe in loan talks
Arsenal are ready to ship out record signing Nicolas Pepe on loan as talks have started with Nice.
That’s according to Foot Mercato, who report that the £72million winger could be heading back to France after three underwhelming seasons in England.
Nice have already signed Kasper Schmeichel and Aaron Ramsey this summer.
No Rabiot agreement
Manchester United are seemingly unable to secure even their fifth-choice targets.
Fabrizio Romano says Adrien Rabiot’s wage demands are too high so the deal is stalling.
