Fernandes to Man Utd?
Manchester United have held talks with Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes’ agent.
According to ESPN, Old Trafford officials have held informal meeting with Miguel Pinho in London.
A deal for Fernandes is expected to cost around £65m.
United have a free run at Fernandes after Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham pulled out of the race.
Zaha to Arsenal?
Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace he wants to join Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail.
The Ivory Coast international urged Selhurst Park chiefs to strike a deal with their Premier League rivals.
Crystal Palace are reluctant to sell after agreeing a deal with Manchester United for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Zaha is valued at £80m by the Eagles, which is out of Arsenal’s price range.
Camacho to leave Liverpool?
Liverpool have agreed a deal to sell Rafael Camacho to Sporting Lisbon.
According to the Standard, the Champions League winners will bank an initial £5m fee, with add-ons and a 20 per cent sell-on clause also attached.
Camacho’s contract was due to expire at the end of next season.
He failed to nail down a regular role in Jurgen Klopp’s team since joining in 2016.
Kovacic to Chelsea?
Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid.
Stamford Bridge bosses have agreed to pay £40m for the Croatia international, who endured a mixed loan spell last term.
The Blues must complete the deal by June 30, however.
Despite being under a transfer ban, Chelsea can sign Kovacic due to the terms of his loan deal.
