The transfer window is now open and all of Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United are likely to be busy. The Blues will soon have Mauricio Pochettino working and the Argentine could reunite with one of his former Paris Saint-Germain stars in Kylian Mbappe. Though to want to leave PSG, Chelsea are expected to register their interest as they pursue another deal for Brighton star Moises Caicedo.
Caicedo is also of interest to Arsenal as they attempt to get the Declan Rice deal over the line, as well as consider a move for Leicester City defender Timothy Castagne. Reports also suggest they retain an interest in Joao Cancelo of Manchester City.
Manchester United, meanwhile, are strongly linked with Napoli defender Kim min-Jae and could yet enter the Mbappe race should their Qatari takeover get over the line. Tottenham are thought to be closing in on a deal for David Raya – also a target at Old Trafford – and continue to track James Maddison. Follow the latest news, gossip and rumours below!
