Transfer news live: Liverpool to make new Naby Keita bid, Chelsea face competition for Danilo

The transfer window is open so, naturally, every man and his dog has been linked to Manchester United while champions Chelsea have had to watch their rivals strengthen their arsenals without restocking theirs.

The likes of Kylian Mbappé, Alvaro Morata, Andrea Belotti, and Alexis Sanchez have all been linked with moves in what promises to be another summer of bumper signings.

Rather impressively, a number of clubs have already set about their business early. Manchester City were the summer’s early pace setters, having already signed both Bernardo Silva and Ederson, but rivals United have caught them up landing the summer’s biggest deal so far, Romelu Lukaku from Everton. The Toffees meanwhile Everton have signed six new faces including United’s Wayne Rooney.

Chelsea finally got their hands on Antonio Rudiger while Alexandre Lacazette has joined ArsenalLiverpool‘s pursuit of Naby Keita is beginning to annoy Leipzig with lots of talk but little action.
