We are nearing the end of the summer transfer window for the seventh week of the Premier League and clubs are still aggressively searching for new players to improve their respective squads.
There has been no big transfer activity over the past few days, but as per the reliable Fabrizio Romano, Aston Villa appears to have completed Arsenal’s signing of Emiliano Martinez.
The Argentine goalkeeper, after the arrivals of Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins from Nottingham Forest and Brentford respectively, will become their third major signing of the current transfer window.
Top Transfer Rumours:
Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is keen to land a new striker and the club is said to have a long-term interest in Danny Ings from Southampton. However, because of the high price tag involved after he bagged 25 goals for the Saints last term (Football. London) a contract for the England international seems impossible.
Arsenal seeks to recover funds from player purchases so that more signatures can be made. Lucas Torreira is one of the players who, despite Torino ‘s involvement, could head out towards the exit door. The Gunners have placed a £22 m price tag on the back of the midfielder and this summer intend to split ways indefinitely with the Uruguayan (Tuttosport).
Meanwhile, even with the departure of Emiliano Martinez, Mikel Arteta’s side could be on the lookout for a back-up goalkeeper to Bernd Leno. The giants in north London have named Brentford shot-stopper David Raya as their prime goal and are prepared to spend £10 m on landing their services (The Sun).
This summer, Real Madrid is looking to unload Gareth Bale from their ranks and has set a request price of about £18.5 m. Recently, the Wales international said he would like a return to the Premier League, but there are currently no offers. Los Blancos are currently awaiting an approach from Manchester United (Mundo Deportivo).
Manchester United recently made contact with Thiago Alcantara ‘s representatives, but Liverpool’s possible signing of the Bayern Munich midfielder is still strong. Jurgen Klopp’s side is willing to postpone their approach until the last days of the transfer window, so they can persuade Bayern to lower their £27.8 m price tag (Fabrizio Romano).
