New arrival: Jose Sosa.

Jose Sosa, Besiktas to AC Milan, €7.5 million (Done Deal)

The former Bayern Munich and Napoli playmaker has chosen the No23 shirt at Milan, in tribute to Michael Jordan.

The 31-year-old was the leading assist-maker in Turkey’s Super Lig last season with 12 and is ready to face Torino on Sunday in their Serie A opener.

Rachid Ghezzal, Lyon to Crystal Palace, €7 million (In Talks)

Just 48 hours after selling Yannick Bolasie to Everton, Palace have submitted a bid for the winger.

The offer is low because the 24-year-old only has a year left on his contract with Lyon president Jean Michael Aulas keen to open negotiations over a new deal.

Jeffrey Schlupp, Leicester to West Brom, £12 million (Bid Rejected)

West Brom remain intent on bringing the 23-year-old to the Hawthorns despite having their initial approach knocked back on Wednesday.

Schlupp is said to be pressing for a move as he wants first-team football but Leicester are holding out for a fee more towards £15-£17 million.

Paco Alcacer, Valencia to Barcelona, €45 million (Staying Put)

According to Valencia sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch, he is staying at Mestalla as Barca’s search for a striker goes on. Pitarch said: “Paco has not told me that he wants to leave Valencia. He is happy here and is keen for the start of LaLiga and to score goals.”

Diego Rolan, Bordeaux to Schalke, €10 million (Reported)

Schalke are yet to spend the €50m they received from Manchester City for Leroy Sane but are reportedly closing in on Uruguayan forward Rolan. Southampton are also keen on the 23-year-old, which means his pricetag – should Bordeaux sell, will only rise.
