Follow all the latest gossip and rumours below…


    Kai Havertz is reportedly not ready to commit himself to Chelsea as he has numerous offers to pick from.

    Frank Lampard's side were believed to be in advanced talks over a move for the wantaway Bayer Leverkusen star.

    But according to The Athletic's Rafa Honigstein, Havertz remains undecided over where his future lies.

    The report states that a number of clubs are ready to battle it out for the 21-year-old's signature.

    As a result, Chelsea still have a lot of work to do until the winger signs on the dotted line.

    Bayer Leverkusen chief Rudi Voller has admitted an agreement is in place for Havertz to quit.


    The Premier League summer transfer window will run for 10 weeks from July 27, it has been confirmed.

    Clubs will have to do all their business before October 5, when the window will slam shut.

    That is the same date the domestic-only transfer window will open.

    Top flight clubs will have 11 days – until October 16 – in which to sign players from the EFL.

    A Premier League statement read: “Premier League shareholders have agreed on the dates for the Summer 2020 transfer window.

    “The window will open for 10 weeks at the end of the current Premier League season, starting on July 27 and ending October 5.


    Thomas Partey will snub Arsenal and sign a new Atletico Madrid contract, according to reports.

    The 27-year-old midfielder had emerged as a priority signing for Mikel Arteta but the Ghanaian looks set to extend his stay at the Wanda Metropolitano.

    Only last week reports emerged suggesting Partey wanted the switch to the Emirates to be “completed as quickly as possible”.

    But the Atletico star has done a U-turn and will double his wages and put pen to paper on a new £135,000-a-week deal with the LaLiga side, according to GhanaSoccerNet.

    Partey has a release clause in his current contract that expires in 2023 believed to be between £42m and £45m.

    But the new deal would reportedly see that clause rocket to £87.2m.


    Jadon Sancho will become a Manchester United player this summer – but only if they qualify for the Champions League.

    That is according to German publication Bild, who say Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must secure a top-four finish.

    It looked like fifth would be good enough until Manchester City's two-year ban was overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

    United's 2-2 draw against Southampton dented their hopes and means they currently sit fifth – level on points with fourth-placed Leicester but behind on goal difference.

    United play Leicester in a blockbuster all-or-nothing clash on the final day of the season.

    But even if United get into the Champions League, Dortmund – who have given the Red Devils an August 10 deadline to sign the winger – will still demand £109million for the 20-year-old England ace.


    Manchester United have been beaten to the signing of Jude Bellingham by Borussia Dortmund, according to reports.

    The Red Devils were heavily linked with Birmingham’s 17-year-old sensation but the Bundesliga side will reportedly pay £22million for the youngster and tie him down to a £2.7m-a-year contract.

    United had targeted the versatile midfielder, while Chelsea were also interested.

    But the Bundesliga side have beaten them to it, according to German outlet Bild.

    Bellingham is free to sign a pro contract having turned 17 on June 30, previous reports suggested he was expected to agree a five-year deal with the German side.


    Inter Milan are reportedly ready to offer Manchester United their centre-back Milan Skriniar in an audacious bid to land Anthony Martial.

    The Red Devils forward, 24, is enjoying the most prolific season of his career – chipping in with 21 goals and eight assists in 41 games.

    He is United’s joint top scorer this campaign with Marcus Rashford, with the duo continuing to shine following the restart.

    Such is his dazzling form, Italian news outlet Calciomercato have stated that Inter have renewed their interest in the French international – who is tied down at Old Trafford until 2024.

    They claim that the player has been on the Serie A side’s radar for two years, and they are now finally ready to make a move for Martial.

    However Inter know United would be reluctant to sell him, and have concocted a plan to prise him away.


    Mikel Arteta has challenged Arsenal’s owners to match his big-time ambitions as the club faces a fourth year without Champions League football.

    The demanding Spaniard fears a summer transfer freeze will make it almost impossible for him to compete at the top end of the table.

    And he made it clear he is not prepared to accept a situation which will leave Arsenal in danger of dropping even further behind the Premier League’s title contenders.

    The Gunners boss warned: “Every year we are out of the Champions League makes it harder than ever to get back into that competition.

    “If you are not in the Champions League and you say ‘I don’t invest in the team because I don’t have the financial ability to do it’ then the gap becomes bigger to the other clubs that do invest.

    “So at some stage you have to decide whether you take a risk and go for it to close that gap or whether you stay where you are.”


    Manchester United are reportedly ready to offload six players at the end of the season as they look to raise funds for their key targets.

    Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to assemble a squad capable of mounting a charge for the Premier League title and knows he must revamp his side to close the gap on rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

    United are currently in fifth spot in the table with three games to play – only out of the top four on goal difference.

    But should they fail to qualify for the Champions League, the Red Devils will have to sell players in order to raise money for signings.

    According to the Telegraph, the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard are two players that the club would be willing to part ways with.

    And they will also listen to offers for defenders Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Diogo Dalot.
