Transfer news LIVE: The latest news, gossip and done deals ahead of the summer transfer window

  • Chelsea have set their sights on Manchester City defender John Stones
  • Liverpool remain interested in Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara
  • Express Sport brings you the latest from the rest of the Premier League

Adam Lallana to Brighton

Adam Lallana has agreed a three-year contract with Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Liverpool midfielder is departing Anfield on a free transfer with his contract set to expire in the coming days.

Lallana has been on Merseyside for six years having joined from Southampton in 2014.

An announcement could be made as soon as Monday.

Kingsley Coman Man Utd latest

Bayern Munich have made a decision over the future of Kingsley Coman amid interest from Manchester United.

The France international has emerged as an alternative target to Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho for the Red Devils.

Ed Woodward has reportedly held talks over a loan or permanent move.

The club’s scouts are said to have watched the 24-year-old extensively ahead of the transfer window.

Reports in Germany, however, suggest that Coman is a non-starter for United.

SportBild claim Bayern bigwigs would say no to any approach from the Premier League giants.

Chelsea swap snub

Chelsea have turned down the chance to take Aaron Ramsey in a swap deal for Jorginho with Juventus, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

Jorginho looks set to end his two-year stint in west London with reports suggesting he is pushing for a move back to Italy.

Juventus have emerged as the frontrunners for his signature and are said to be in contact with Marina Granovskaia to try and make a deal happen.

Juventus have already lodged a bid which included former Arsenal midfielder Ramsey.

But it is claimed Chelsea turned down the offer as they’re only interested in a straight-cash deal.

Arsenal record deal slammed

Jermaine Jenas has described Nicolas Pepe’s signing as “bad business” for Arsenal.

When asked if Pepe would be considered among the league’s biggest flops from last summer transfer window when taking his £72m fee into account, Jenas said: “Oh yeah. That’s up there with Joelinton.

“It is the money, it is as simple as that. The amount of money spent on him in terms of what he has delivered and what you can actually see.

“A lot of people talk about Thierry Henry’s first season at Arsenal and it didn’t quite go for him straight away.

“They kind of lean on that a lot in these type of signings.

“But I’ve just not seen it with this particular player and it looks like bad business.”

Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool

Liverpool could be able to offer the No 6 shirt to Thiago Alcantara should Dejan Lovren seal his move to Zenit St Petersburg.

Lovren, who currently occupies the squad number, is on the brink of a £10.9million switch to the Russian outfit.

Thiago is in Jurgen Klopp’s sights after refusing to extend his contract with Bayern Munich.

Anfield chiefs have yet to contact the Bundesliga champions over a swoop, however.
