The summer transfer window has now been open for two weeks but there has been very little action among the Premier League’s top clubs. However, with the European window set to commence on Monday and Euro 2024 entering its final stages, recruitment is likely to accelerate in the coming days.

Chelsea have, characteristically, been among Europe’s busiest clubs in the transfer window so far, wasting no time overseeing incomings and outgoings.

The Blues completed two deals on Friday to help them stay in line with Financial Fair Play and the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are working tirelessly behind the scenes to supply Erik ten Hag with new recruits ahead of INEOS’ first full season at the helm.

And one of the Red Devils’ priority targets is claimed to be open to an Old Trafford switch, potentially paving the way to a straightforward deal.

Express Sport provides all the latest transfer news from elsewhere as the window enters its third week.

Man City set for £5m transfer windfall

Manchester City will be due around £5m once Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz completes his £42m summer transfer to Juventus.

City signed Luiz for £10m in 2017 before selling him to Villa in a £15m deal two years later.

Five years on, they are set to pocket another £5m from his next move after including a 20 per cent sell-on clause in his contract.

Newcastle exploring Anthony Elanga deal

Newcastle United are reportedly in talks with Nottingham Forest over a potential swap deal involving Anthony Elanga and Elliot Anderson.

The Magpies were interested in Elanga before he left Manchester United for Forest in a £15m deal last summer.

And the Swede has impressed at the City Ground, scoring five goals in 39 appearances.

Liverpool in Anthony Gordon talks

Liverpool were in talks with Newcastle United for Anthony Gordon earlier this summer, according to reports.

The Mail claim that discussions were so advanced that a potential medical in Leipzig was explored.

However, Newcastle’s demand for Jarell Quansah as part of the deal cooled Liverpool’s interest.

It’s said that talks could resume this weekend.

Chelsea sign Omari Kellyman

Chelsea have announced the signing of Aston Villa midfielder Omari Kellyman in a £19m deal.

The 18-year-old has signed a six-year contract at Stamford Bridge, with the option of a further year.

Chelsea negotiated a deal for Kellyman during talks that saw Ian Maatsen leave for Villa Park for £37.5m.

Raphael Varane lands in Como

Raphael Varane has landed in Como for discussions over a potential summer switch to the Serie A club.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the former Manchester United defender will hold face-to-face talks with the Como board and Cesc Fabregas.

Varane is available as a free agent and could be set to play in Italian football for the first time in his illustrious career.

Liverpool make Anthony Gordon approach

Liverpool have approached Newcastle United about a potential summer deal for Anthony Gordon, according to reports.

HITC claim that Liverpool are very keen on the former Everton winger, who they believe has enough quality now and significant potential for the future.

Arne Slot wants to bolster his attack, and the 23-year-old has been identified as a target.

Chelsea confirm two deals

On Friday, Chelsea confirmed that Ian Maatsen and Hakim Ziyech had both left the club on permanent transfers.

Maatsen has joined Aston Villa in a £37.5m deal, while Ziyech’s loan at Galatasaray has been made permanent.

The Blues are balancing the books, having already lined up multiple deals early in the window.

Manuel Ugarte keen on Man Utd

PSG midfielder Manuel Ugarte is open to sealing a switch to Manchester United ahead of his expected summer departure.

The 23-year-old has emerged as a top target for United just one year after his £51m move to Paris from Sporting Lisbon.

Fabrizio Romano reports that he is set to leave the Parc des Princes and would be keen on a United move, even without Champions League football on offer.

But it’s claimed that the Red Devils aren’t his only suitors, which could spark a bidding war.
