Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd have £34m agreement as 43-goal star 'very close' to Arsenal

One whole week has passed since the summer transfer window opened last Friday, and no major deals have been completed straight out of the gate. But Manchester United and Arsenal are among the Premier League clubs said to be working behind the scenes to ensure business is booming in the coming weeks.

Most eyes are currently on Euro 2024, which has also reached the one-week mark after an entertaining first round of fixtures and start to the second round.

England drew 1-1 with Denmark last night, leaving Gareth Southgate’s side having to beat Slovenia to ensure they top Group C.

The tournament in Germany has undoubtedly complicated transfer aspirations but there are still plans being made across the Premier League.

Most summer deals will unfold beyond July 1, when the transfer window opens for clubs around Europe, and they can recruit replacements for England-bound stars.

Express Sport keeps you up to date with all the latest transfer news and views.

Arsenal submit Ferdi Kadioglu bid

Arsenal have submitted an opening bid worth £17m for Fenerbahce left-back Ferdi Kadioglu, according to reports.

Turkish outlet Ajan Spor claim that the Gunners have made their move for Kadioglu.

Previous reports suggested that Arsenal were close to agreeing personal terms with the 24-year-old.

Fenerbahce start Victor Lindelof talks

Fenerbahce has started talks over a summer move for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof.

According to reputable Turkish reporter Yagiz Sabuncuoglu, discussions for Lindelof’s switch have begun.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen to reunite with the Swedish centre-back, who he brought to United in 2017.

Lindelof’s exit could pave the way for two new centre-backs at Old Trafford this summer after Raphael Varane’s confirmed exit.

Tottenham ready to pay Riccardo Calafiori fee

Tottenham are willing to meet Bologna’s £34m asking price for Riccardo Calafiori, according to reports.

Tutto Juve claim that Spurs are looking to accelerate their pursuit of the Italian centre-back.

However, Calafiori is said to be reluctant to leave his homeland this summer and would prefer a move to Juventus.

Premier League trio in for David Hancko

Aston Villa and West Ham United have reportedly joined Liverpool in the race to sign Feyenoord defender David Hancko.

According to HITC, the Slovakia international, who impressed in his nation’s shock win over Belgium at Euro 2024, is firmly on the clubs’ radars.

However, it’s claimed that Atletico Madrid are considered favourites for Hancko’s signature.

Michael Olise’s release clause higher than £60m

Chelsea may have to splash even more than £60m if they want to sign Michael Olise from Crystal Palace this summer.

According to Duncan Castles, Olise’s release clause is higher than the fee currently floating around.

Bayern Munich, Newcastle United and Manchester United are also interested, but Chelsea are considered frontrunners.

However, the Blues might come stuck if they can’t find a way to structure a deal for the 22-year-old winger.

Liverpool eyeing Arda Guler

Liverpool head coach Arne Slot is keen on an audacious summer swoop for Real Madrid wonderkid Arda Guler, according to reports.

Guler has been one of the stand-out players at Euro 2024 so far and has been tipped for a huge future after joining Real last year.

However, internal concerns have reportedly been raised about Kylian Mbappe and Endrick’s arrivals limiting game time for other attackers next season.

And with Guler said to be the most likely to make way, TEAMTalk claim that Slot wants to move for the 19-year-old winger.

Man Utd have Joshua Zirkzee agreement

Manchester United are preparing to trigger Joshua Zirkzee’s £34m release clause after agreeing to advance their interest.

According to The Telegraph, the Red Devils are readying an offer that would only leave personal terms and agent demands to settle.

AC Milan are considered the frontrunners for the Bologna striker’s signature, but United are pushing to provide Rasmus Hojlund with support.
