Arsenal are weighing up moves for Loic Remy and Danny Welbeck.
Deal or no deal? Given the ankle injury to Olivier Giroud, which will keep him out for around three months, Arsenal are back in the market for a striker. But time is running out to bring in someone of quality. No deal.
Tabloid speculation I
Arturo Vidal and Daley Blind will follow Angel di Maria into Old Trafford before the transfer window closes.
Deal or no deal: The signing of Di Maria, albeit for £60million, could convince the others that Manchester United is the club for them. The signing of Vidal and Blind could take United’s spending beyond £200million this window. Deal – but do United have time to sign both?
Tabloid speculation II
Manchester United could use Javier Hernandez as a makeweight in the Vidal deal, with the Italian club reportedly keen on signing the Mexican.
Deal or no deal? Hernandez, like fellow United striker Danny Welbeck, has been linked with a move away from United all summer, but the difference here is that Juventus have already expressed an interest in signing Hernandez. Deal – but it could hinge on the outcome of the Vidal deal.
Arsenal are back in talks with Sporting Lisbon over the transfer of midfielder William Carvalho.
Deal or no deal: Arsenal ended their interest in the defensive midfielder earlier in the summer when the clubs couldn’t agree a fee. But Sporting are reportedly willing to lower their asking price to £24million. Deal – but Arsenal may need to send one of their young stars the other way in exchange.
Signed, sealed, delivered
Well, not quite, but Everton are on the verge of completing a two-year deal for Samuel Eto’o, who was released from Chelsea at the end of last season. The Cameroonian scored 12 goals in 35 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s team.
