    Premier League new boys Brentford have signed Spanish goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez on an initial season long loan deal.

    The 23-year-old was part of Spain's silver medal winning squad at Tokyo 2020 and joins on a temporary deal with the option to buy.

    He links up with the Bees from Spanish side Huesca and will provide competition with David Raya for the number one jersey.

    Crystal Palace have had a £5million bid for Will Hughes turned down by Watford, CHARLIE WYETT reports.

    But Palace, although keen on the midfielder, are insisting they will not offer a penny more.

    Hughes, 26, is currently training with the under-23s at Watford as he has refused to sign a fresh-two year deal.

    He is now in the final year of his contract but Watford still believe he is worth more than what Palace have offered.

    But it looks likely that Hughes, who insisted he was happy at Vicarage Road last season, will end up moving before the transfer window closes.

    Hughes joined four years ago in a £5m deal from Derby, who have a 15per cent sell-on clause.

    Spanish journalist Jose Manuel Garcia has claimed Jules Kounde has asked Sevilla to accept an offer from Chelsea for him.

    The 22-year-old has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Blues but a transfer fee is yet to be agreed with Sevilla.

    Chelsea were eager to include Kurt Zouma in a player-plus-cash deal, but the Frenchman isn't keen on a move away from London.

    As a result talks stalled, but now the deal could be revived with Kounde personally asking Sevilla to leave.

    Manchester United have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka.

    The 26-year-old is in the final year of his contract with Bayern, but it's unsure whether he'll put pen to paper on a new deal.

    That's after the Express reported that Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer said they won’t pay over the odds to secure his future.

    And German outlet Bild report that United have offered the midfielder a £200,000 per-week deal should he leave Bayern on a free transfer nect summer.

    The Gunners are in advanced talks to sign Martin Odegaard, according to AS journalist Jorge Picon.

    Odegaard's agent is reported to have been in London today to discuss a deal for his client, with the 23-year-old eager on a move away from Madrid.

    And Arsenal are in the market for an attacking midfielder as Mikel Arteta looks to find a long-term replacement for Mesut Ozil.

    The Gunners are lacking creativity in the middle of the pitch, and that showed in the dismal 2-0 defeat to Brentford on Friday night.

    Watford have held preliminary talks over the potential signing of Fenerbache holding midfielder Ozan Tufan.

    Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is close to agreeing a move to Brazilian side Flamengo.

    That's according to Globo Esporte, who claim United have sent "positive signals" regarding a one year loan deal.

    The 25-year-old has been linked with a permanent move away from Old Trafford, with Lazio said to be interested in bringing him back to the Serie A after a loan spell last season.

    Everton and Fenerbahce were also interested, but the player is said to prefer a move to Brazil.

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has claimed Tottenham are keen on signing Cagliari defender Nahitan Nandez.

    And the Uruguayan is equally interested in a move to North London.

    The 25-year-old has been capped 45 times by his country and has spent the last two seasons with Cagliari in Serie A.

    Romano told Matt Hayes' YouTube channel:

    "No official bid has been made and nothing advanced for but he is one of the names Tottenham have been enquiring for in the last few days talking directly with Cagliari, the player is on the market because he’s desperate to leave.

    "He wants to try something new.”

    "Wouldn’t be who I am today without you guys. Bring more trophies home boys! Love you all x TA9 out"

    The Gunners are "obsessed" to sign Martin Odegaard, Fabrizio Romano has revealed via his Twitch stream.

    Odegaard's agent is reportedly in London today to discuss terms with Arsenal, with the 23-year-old himself desperate for an Emirates return after spending the second half of last season on loan in North London.

    But if Real Madrid don't allow the Norwegian international to leave, Arteta will turn his attention to James Maddison.

    Fabrizio Romano has revealed the Leicester man is Arsenal's second target, with the 24-year-old being linked with a £70million move to North London earlier this summer.

    Manchester City defender Ko Itakura is set to seal a move to German side Schalke.

    That's according to Sky Sports' Max Bielefeld, who reports that a deal is almost done for the Japanese international.

    The 24-year-old has spent the last two years on loan with Dutch side FC Groningen, and is now set for another loan spell.

    A £3.4million optional permanent fee is also included in the deal.

    Alexandre Lacazette could be on his way out of the Emirates.

    That's according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who claims the 30-year-old has a greater chance of leaving than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    Both players missed Friday's dismal 2-0 defeat to Brentford with a mystery illness, and could soon seal a move away from the Emirates.

    Romano said: "I would keep an eye out on Lacazette more than Aubameyang, talking about transfers.

    "Because there is a chance Lacazette will be leaving in the next days, and so let’s see what happens."

    Sheffield United boss Slavisa Jokanovic says Arsenal remain keen on England goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

    The talented stopper, 23, is desperate to join Mikel Arteta’s side after being relegated to the Championship.

    But Jokanovic has warned Arteta he will not let Ramsdale go for pennies.

    The Blades boss said: “It’s natural he wants to be a Premier League player. I am talking with him, he believes it can be a good move for himself.

    “Right now he is a United player. It will depend on our club and Arsenal too because they are pushing for him but at this moment there is no change.

    “He is a talented English player and I understand Arsenal are interested, but this is the business.

    “If he is one of the best players in the league, his price is high and it’s up to Arsenal if they want him. They need to spend a lot of money.

    “I will be disappointed [if he leaves] but it’s part of the realistic situation.

    “Arsenal is pushing from one side and I am pulling from a different side.”

    Tottenham are interested in a move for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

    That's according to Sky Sports, who claim Nuno Espirito Santo's side are in the market for another defender.

    And the 26-year-old Frenchman is the man they want, despite already signing centre-back Cristian Romero for £47million from Atalanta.

    Zouma has been widely linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, with first team opportunities hard to come by under Thomas Tuchel.

    And it could be London rivals Spurs who snap him up.

    Bayern Munich manager Julien Nagalsmann has slammed Premier League clubs for their spending this window.

    It follows Jack Grealish's £100million move to Manchester City and Romelu Lukaku's £97.5million move to Chelsea.

    Meanwhile Manchester United have spent £73million on Jadon Sancho and an initial £34million on Raphael Varane that could rise to £42million with add-ons.

    Arsenal have also spent a combined £78million on Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares.

    And Nagelsmann has aimed a dig at Premier League clubs for their spending in what was supposed to be a low-key window following financial difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

    When asked whether Bayern would make any more signings, he said: “It is not easy to spend loads of money, we are not in the Premier League.

    “If it is possible then, perhaps, we will get in a new player. If not, it’s okay as well and we will work with the players that we have in our squad.”

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed Barcelona are NOT interested in signing Arsenal club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    The 32-year-old missed Friday’s game against Brentford with a mystery illness, and has been linked with a move to Camp Nou.

    It’s been reported that Ronald Koeman’s side were interested in a potential swap deal that involved Aubameyang moving to Barcelona, and Camp Nou outcast Philippe Coutinho heading in the other direction.

    But Romano has put those rumours to bed, saying in a Tweet: “Barcelona have no interest in Pierre Aubameyang, confirmed – he’s not even a target for Barça, no swap deal with Philippe Coutinho.”

    Barcelona’s patience with Samuel Umiti is reportedly wearing thin with the club rumoured to be ready to drop the axe on the France ace’s contract.

    Spanish news outlet Sport claims the club have been unimpressed with the defender’s attitude in regard to a possible departure.

    The Les Bleus player has been linked with Benfica or a move back to Ligue One where he began his senior career with Lyon in 2016.

    Tammy Abraham has revealed former Chelsea men Antonio Rudiger and Emerson both gave him glowing reviews before the 23-year-old made the decision to sign for Roma.

    Both Rudiger and Emerson signed for the Blues from Roma, with Abraham now going the other way.

    And when asked on whether they had an influence in making his decision, Abraham told Roma's website:

    "They [Antonio Rudiger and Emerson] loved everything, especially Toni Rudiger, he told me he would always play for Roma again.

    "Hearing it gave me confidence. As I said, I felt good from day one, I just have to do my best this season and help the team as much as possible."

    Shirts sold out online in just half an hour, with queues weaving around the French capital the next morning as supporters desperately tried to get into the club shop.

    Incredibly, PSG have raked in £100m from Messi jersey sales in the past week.

    And NBA legend Jordan has been a huge beneficiary of that, raking in £5m for himself.

    The Jordan brand is the kit manufacturer of PSG.

    As part of their partnership, the US company takes home five per cent of all jersey sales.

    Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia has opened the door for Tammy Abraham’s return after inserting a £68million buy-back clause into his Roma transfer, ANTHONY CHAPMAN reports.

    Chelsea will be able to trigger a clause, starting from the summer of 2023, to re-sign Abraham for £68m – double his Roma transfer fee.

    She told Chelsea’s website: “Tammy will always be welcomed back at Stamford Bridge as one of our own.

    “We have all enjoyed watching his progress through our academy and into the first-team squad, and are grateful for his contribution to our successes at senior and youth level.

    “His many goals in a Chelsea shirt and, of course, his part in our Champions League triumph last season will never be forgotten.

    “I’m sure all Chelsea supporters will join me in wishing Tammy a long and successful career.”

    Arsenal target Tammy Abraham has spoken after his move to Roma was confirmed.

    The 23-year-old was reported to have agreed personal terms with the Gunners, but Arsenal never made a concrete offer for the striker.

    Abraham said: “You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately.

    “Roma is a club that deserves to be fighting for titles and trophies. I’ve had the experience of winning major trophies and I want to be in those competitions again.

    “I want to help this team to achieve that and get to the level where Roma should be.

    “It’s a massive honour to be the number nine at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team.”

    Manchester United winger Amad Diallo has a '90 per cent' chance of leaving Old Trafford on loan.

    That's according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who told The United Stand: "Basel, in particular, are really insisting but I think the player wants to try something in different countries, in different leagues.

    "Maybe in the Premier League or maybe even the Bundesliga as German clubs are trying for Amad.

    "It's really an open situation, he is not in a rush to decide. He will go on loan, it's 90 per cent he will go on loan, it's not clear just yet which club he wants to join."

    The 19-year-old joined up with the Red Devils at the start of this year following his £37million move from Serie A side Atalanta.

    He's played eight games for United since then, scoring once and providing one assist.
