The transfer window is in full swing, and from Harry Kane to Kai Havertz and more, we bring you the peak of the bunch from the incomings and outgoings.
Inter wants Arsenal’s Balogun.
Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun could be on his way to Inter Milan if the Italian side can meet the club’s evaluation of the American.
The Gunners have slapped a £34.3m price tag on the striker, and with Romelu Lukaku set to return to Stamford Bridge this summer, Inter will be short upfront, and the 21-year-old could be their pick.
United pull out of Kane's chase
In a sensational development that Manchester United fans wouldn’t like, the club has reportedly pulled out of the chase for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The Red Devils cited cost as the reason for looking elsewhere, and Ersmus Hoijlund of Atalanta and Goncalo Ramos are the prospects, with United also seeking to invest in Chelsea’s Mason Mount.
Arsenal drops its bid for Rice and eyes Havertz.
Arsenal has dropped an official bid for Declan Rice as the club hopes to wrap things up before other clubs join the chase.
In the same vein, multiple sources are reporting Arsenal’s interest in Chelsea’s Kai Havertz, a tough one for Arsenal fans to accept considering the player’s poor season, but his quality cannot be questioned.
Newcastle leads the chase for Madders and Barella.
Newcastle United is already preparing for life in the Champions League next season, with reports suggesting the Geordies are after Leicester’s James Madison and Italian midfield maestro Nicolo Barella.
Both players are being lined up by Eddie Howe, but nothing is confirmed as of now.
Brighton confirm Milner's transfer.
Veteran utility player James Milner (37) has signed for Brighton and Hove Albion on a one-year contract after the expiration of his contract at Liverpool.
Roberto De Zerbi was full of praise for the ageless player who was signed to bring in experience after winning the Premier League title, the Champions League, the FA Cup, the League Cup, as well as the Club World Cup.
Milner’s deal has the option of an additional year.
