All the latest news and gossip from the summer transfer window
Tottenham have reportedly stepped up their efforts to sign Tanguy Ndombele by offering Lyon £60million.
Mauricio Pochettino wants the midfielder and the club will prioritize him before pursuing other deals, though they face competition from Juventus.
The Sun report a source at the French club ‘believe that Tottenham are serious about pursuing a deal for Ndombele this window’.
Lyon signed the 22-year-old from Amiens for £7m last summer after he spent the 2017/18 season on loan and Spurs see him as a long-term replacement to Mousa Dembele.
Liverpool will not consider allowing Dejan Lovren to leave Anfield for anything less than £25million this summer.
The Reds are not looking to sell the Croatia international but AC Milan are believed to be interested in the World Cup runner-up, although they have yet to make contact with the club.
That position could be set to change with Ricky Massara expected to be appointed the Serie A club’s new sporting director having left Roma, ahead of a Milan securing a new head coach, with Sampdoria’s Marco Giampaolo the favourite.
However, it is understood Liverpool are in no rush to usher Lovren, 30 next month, out of the door and it would take an offer of at least £25million to persuade them to change that stance.
Manchester United have completed the signing of Wales winger Daniel James from Swansea, both clubs have announced.
The 21-year-old has signed a five-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year, to become manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing at Old Trafford.
James, a graduate of the Swansea academy, scored five goals in 38 appearances during an impressive 2018-19 campaign with the Championship side.
