JORGINHO

Manchester City and Napoli are close to completing a £43m (Dh208.4m) deal for the Napoli midfielder, reports the Guardian.

Pep Guardiola is keen to strengthen his midfield this summer with the Italy international viewed as ideal competition for Fernandinho who turned 33 in May.

The 26-year-old, who made 33 Serie A appearances last season, was tracked by many of Europe’s elite clubs but has opted to sign for the Etihad Stadium side.

YUSSUF POULSEN

West Ham United are interested in signing RB Leipzig’s Danish forward, Calciomercato reports.

Lazio winger Felipe Anderson remains a key target for the Hammers, but the East London side are now being linked with the versatile attacker who starred at the World Cup.

Poulsen, who still has three years remaining on his contract at Red Bull Arena Leipzig, scored just four goals last season but his ability to play up top or out wide would be a real filip for new boss Manuel Pellegrini.

BENJAMIN PAVARD

Arsenal and Tottenham face competition from Napoli for the highly-rated Frenchman, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The 22-year-old has been impressive for Les Bleus in the World Cup this summer, stealing the headlines with a stunning goal in the 4-2 win over Argentina last weekend.

Although Stuttgart want Pavard to stay, they are realistic of their hopes of keeping the player and an exit is likely to take place next summer.

ANDRE GOMES

Arsenal are set to step up their interest in signing the Barcelona midfielder, according to the Independent.

The 24-year-old is likely to be allowed to leave the Camp Nou for less than the €35 million fee (Dh150m) Barca shelled out for his signature in the summer of 2016.

With Philippe Coutinho‘s arrival and Gremio star Arthur incoming, Gomes’ first-team chances are limited. And with new Gunners boss Unai Emery looking to strengthen his squad ahead of the new season, the Portuguese has emerged as a key target for the North London side.

WILLIAN

Chelsea have rejected a £50m (Dh242.4m) offer from Barcelona for their Brazilian winger, Sky Sports claims.

While the Blues refused to sell, Willian’s future hangs in the balance and he is said to be open to a move away from Stamford Bridge.

The 29-year-old has made over 200 appearances since moving to West London in 2013, scoring 14 goals and providing nine assists in all competitions last season.

Yassin Fekir, the younger brother of Liverpool target Nabil, has signed a new two-year deal with Lyon.

Attacking midfielder Yassin has agreed a contract extension with the Ligue 1 side after his previous deal expired last month.

Nabil Fekir, who is currently part of France’s World Cup squad, appeared close to a move to Anfield ahead of the tournament in Russia only for OL to pull the plug on the deal amid reports of a chronic knee injury.

“Transfer negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and Olympique Lyonnais have decided to put an end to this negotiation tonight at 8pm,” Lyon said in a statement at the time.

The 24-year-old was being courted by Liverpool as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January.
