Saliba to Arsenal?
William Saliba is set to undergo a medical on Tuesday ahead of a move to Arsenal, according to RMC Sport reporter Mohamed Bouhafsi.
Saliba, 18, will cost £27m before returning to Saint-Etienne on loan for the upcoming season.
The Ligue 1 club have confirmed a deal is in the pipeline.
Bernard Caiazzo, Saint-Etienne president, told Le Progres: “Everything is on track with Arsenal. William will spend next season with us.”
Fernandes to Man Utd?
Manchester United have been warned that their chances of landing Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes on the cheap are non-existent.
The Portuguese club’s president Frederico Varandas said: “I don’t know if there are many or if there are few [interested clubs].
“What I know, a lot has been spoken of values, coming to the press, €55m, €62m… for that he doesn’t leave, for sure.
“If Bruno Fernandes leaves, players with quality will come. But if Bruno leaves.”
Sessegnon and Lo Celso to Tottenham?
Tottenham are gearing up to spend another £80m this week bringing in Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon.
Starsport understands Lo Celso is pushing hard to join Spurs and it is understood Real Betis have finally signalled a willingness to lower their asking price.
Tottenham are also close to signing long-term target Sessegnon after a breakthrough in talks with Fulham.
The north Londoners are expected to pay around £20m plus add-ons for the 19-year-old, who is entering the final year of his contract.
