With leagues around Europe beginning to kick-off, the need to finish adding the final touches to squads ahead of August 31’s transfer deadline is becoming ever more pressing.
Sport360 rounds-up the biggest latest transfer stories from around the world.
The Paraguay centre-back yesterday became the Rossoneri’s third summer signing after a deal was agreed with the Argentine champions from the first half 2016.
At just 23-years old, there’s plenty of scope for development in the future.
The giant Spain striker’s frustrating spell at Sevilla is close to an end after he was booked in for a medical with the Swans.
His arrival will boost an already thin area of the squad which has been further weakened by the departures of Bafetimbi Gomis and Alberto Paloschi.
Widespread reports in Italy state that the Argentine striker’s wife and agent Wanda Nara are set to meet with the Gunners in the coming days to discuss a club-record move.
Arsenal have struggled thus far in the summer to bring in competition to Olivier Giroud.
The boy wonder could be given a chance to rediscover his spark in the Bundesliga, reports AS.
The 17-year-old playmaker was recruited to huge fanfare last year, but has featured just once for Los Blancos. Hamburg appear the most-likely route to regular games.
The Toffees are in desperate need of reinforcements up top, even if they keep hold of Romelu Lukaku.
This situation has seen them join Southampton in the hunt for the prolific Algeria star. He scored 31 times in 44 games last term.
It’s been a day of big moves in Serie A, with both Inter and Roma parting with eight-figure sums to bolster their squads ahead of the coming season.
In England, meanwhile, champions Leicester City continue their summer of quiet reinforcement with the signing of a young star of Euro 2016.
Sport360 rounds-up the day’s transfer news:
The midfielder is viewed as the final piece to Inter’s attack. His acquisition on a four-year deal will likely see Ivan Perisic, Ever Banega and Candreva playing behind Mauro Icardi in a 4-2-3-1.
The Italy international scored 10 goals in 30 Serie A games last season.
Mohamed Salah: Only Higuaín (32) & Bacca (15) scored more goals from open play in Serie A last season than @22mosalah (13)— WhoScored.com (@WhoScored) August 3, 2016
The Egypt star spent last season on loan at the Serie A giants and they have taken up their option to make the move permanent.
The winger’s buy-out figure was €19m, with an impressive €6m profit on the player they bought from Basle two years ago.
The EPL champions have completed a deal for the talented 19-year-old Poland winger after he put pen to paper on a five-year deal.
He’s one for the future but his versatility could be of use to Claudio Ranieri having operated at full-back and as a defensive midfielder.
Jurgen Klopp is intent on ushering someone into the problematic left-back spot, with Alberto Moreno failing to live up to his billing since a move from Sevilla two summers ago.
However, Hector’s €24m transfer fee could be a sticking point.
The Italy international has agreed a five-year deal ending his seven-year association with Sampdoria.
It’s another smart signing for Villarreal having lost Denis Suarez, Eric Bailly earlier this summer and they’ve now added the striker to Alexandre Pato and Alfred N’Diaye.
What have you made of your club’s business in the summer transfer window so far?
Baba Rahman, Chelsea to FC Schalke, Loan
Chelsea’s transfer windows in recent years are a bit hit and miss. The full-back, who cost £20m when signed from Augsburg last year, is not in boss Antonio Conte’s plans and has been sent back to the Bundesliga on a season-long-loan.

Kevin-Prince Boateng, AC Milan to Las Palmas, Free
Some may raise eyebrows at this but the La Liga side were solid last season, finishing 11th under the impressive Quique Setien. Following the former Spurs midfielder’s release from Milan, the Ghana international has signed a one-year deal with the Gran Canaria club.

Arkadiusz Milik, Ajax to Napoli, €35m (Dh144m)
Napoli have moved quick to replace the Gonzalo Higuain-sized hole left after his controversial departure to Juventus. Although he’s considered a target man, the 22-year-old is gifted technically and has an eye for goal, netting 22 league goals for Ajax last season.
Alex Song, Barcelona to Rubin Kazan, Free
The Cameroon international’s career has been on the slide ever since he was dropped by Barca. Since dominating in midfield for Arsenal earned him a move to the Catalan giants, he’s since had two loan spells with West Ham and has now turned up in Russia.
Idrissa Gueye, Aston Villa to Everton, €8.4m (Dh35m)
When it came interceptions last term, Gueye was one of the best. The only problem was, he’d immediately lose the ball with his passing letting him down. There’s a talented player in there, though, so Ronald Koeman has something to work with.
