While the new Premier League season gets underway on Saturday, executives behind the scenes are continuing to work hard on sorting summer transfer deals. 

The beginning of the 2020-21 campaign should give teams an idea of where they still need to strengthen with less than a month to go before the delayed transfer window closes on October 5.

We’ve already seen some high-profile moves this summer, like Kai Havertz’  £89m move to Chelsea and Donny van de Beek arriving at Manchester United for £40, while other major deals like Lionel Messi to Manchester City are off the cards. 

Here, Sportsmail’s KIERAN LYNCH will provide live updates from the Premier League and European clubs as they continue to negotiate and complete signings during this window.

West Bromwich Albion expect to finalise the signing of former Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on Monday after he underwent a medical.

The 36-year-old free agent is awaiting paperwork from previous club Zenit St Petersburg before signing a one year contract.

West Brom also retain interest in Watford’s Andre Gray and Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher. 


Emiliano Martinez looks to be heading towards the exit door at Arsenal as it is believed he has been dropped from the squad ahead of today’s opener against Fulham.

Arsenal want £20m for the goalkeeper who is looking to move so he can become a regular starter.

Aston Villa’s hopes of signing Martinez have been threatened by the interest from Brighton.

Good morning everyone! Today is the day the Premier League returns – after a much shorter break than normal.

And first up, Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is set to become Chelsea’s seventh signing of the summer after agreeing a £25m deal.
