The summer transfer window is alive and kicking as clubs throughout Europe look to cement their squads ahead of next season.
It’s the future of Tottenham striker Harry Kane that will dominate much of the headlines until the close of the window at 11pm BST on August 31.
Manchester City are the favourites to land the England captain, and Sportsmail also understands they are confident of securing a £100million move for Jack Grealish.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have announced they have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund to sign Jadon Sancho, while Arsenal are trying to lure Ben White to the Emirates in a big-money move.
Sportsmail’s OLI GAMP will keep you up-to-date with the latest negotiations, rumours and done deals below.
Another deal we’re awaiting is Ben White to Arsenal, with the Gunners already agreeing a fee, and it looks like Brighton could be preparing a replacement.
The Seagulls are reportedly lining up Liverpool centre-back Phillips, who featured heavily for Jurgen Klopp last season amid a deep injury crisis and certainly impressed – but could find himself frozen out as the likes of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk return to the fold.
Sporting Lisbon looked to have unearthed yet another star after full back Nuno Mendes’ eye-catching displays last season and also featuring for Portugal of late too.
Man City are said to be lining up a bid but are currently far apart with the Primeira Liga side’s valuation of around £43m. The Premier League outfit want to pay just £25m for the teenage defender, reports claim.
A very good morning to you and welcome to another day of Sportsmail’s live transfer coverage. The weather is really heating up and so are the deals as clubs start crossing the i’s and dotting the t’s to get their business going this summer.
We’re still waiting for official confirmation of Jadon Sancho’s big move to Manchester United after completing a medical while the likes of Erling Haaland and Harry Kane are always going to be linked with moves away until the window slams shut.
As you battle to stay cool on this sweltering hot day, join me for all the rumours, news and done deals as they happen.
