Manchester United’s summer-long pursuit of Frenkie de Jong is still underway, although the club will meet the midfielder for talks in a last-ditch effort to persuade him to join once Barcelona’s US tour is over.
The Red Devils are also looking for a striker and a right-back and have been offered someone in the latter department in Benjamin Pavard, who is also being targeted by Chelsea. As things stand, United are reportedly unenthusiastic about a deal.
Newcastle are meanwhile in negotiations with Chelsea to take over Timo Werner on loan. His former club RB Leipzig are also keen, but the striker is said to be ‘desperate’ to prove himself in England, giving the Magpies an advantage.
A number of other major Premier League clubs will be active in the transfer market in the coming weeks, with Tottenham being linked with Nicolo Zaniolo and Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta confirming he is still working on deals to bring new faces to the club .
Players like Liverpool, Everton and West Ham could also be busy, while there is expected to be a lot of movement across Europe as we head into the last month of the window.
