Transfer latest: Paqueta could join Spurs; Newcastle eye Grimaldo
To kick off our latest transfer round-up, Lucas Paqueta is not particularly interested in moving to Arsenal, but a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur is seen as a credible option for the Brazilian. Reports claim Lyon want £55 million for the 24-year-old. Manchester City also want Paqueta, according to L’Equipe.
Newcastle are keen on Alex Grimaldo. The left-back will be allowed to leave Benfica for a fee of £16.8 million this summer. But the Magpies face a battle with Barcelona, Manchester City and Juventus, Marca reports.
Everton hope to announce their next signing this week, with the Toffees in advanced talks with Burnley over a deal for Dwight McNeil. Frank Lampard’s men are looking to pay around £15 million for the winger, according to The Telegraph.
Leeds United are showing strong interest in signing James McAtee on loan. Manchester City will let the 19-year-old leave should they provide assurances over game-time. Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest also want the teenager, the Daily Mail claims.
Transfer latest: Leeds bid for Max; Nuno Tavares’ move stalls
Leeds have also made a bid for Philipp Max as they look to strengthen their options at left-back. Junior Firpo will miss the start of the season. And with that, the Whites have offered £7 million for the German, Tuttomercatoweb reports.
Atalanta’s bid to sign Nuno Tavares on loan has stalled. The left-back looked set to head to Italy. However, Arsenal‘s insistence that there will be no option to buy included has helped cause a stalemate between the two clubs, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
Nottingham Forest are now in talks to produce another remarkable signing, with discussions underway over a deal for William Carvalho. The Portuguese is a priority for Steve Cooper’s men, according to Fabrizio Romano.
And finally, West Ham are interested in Paris Saint-Germain defender Abdou Diallo. The centre-back is available for £16.8 million, and also wanted by Rennes, Media Foot claims.
