The summer transfer market is poised for another frenzy of activity, with today’s focus on the futures of Harry Kane, Moises Caicedo and David Raya. The Tottenham striker scored four goals against Shakhtar Donetsk amid talks about a move to Bayern Munich, while other stars have also had important departure-related developments.
Arsenal are looking for a deal with Brentford for goalkeeper Raya despite Aaron Ramsdale’s exploits against Manchester City in the Community Shield. At Chelsea, Caicedo’s exclusion from Brighton yesterday could provide a huge boost to their transfer offer, while Deivid Washington could be the next young star to join the team.
Spurs hope to introduce Micky van de Ven and Alejo Veliz today and there should be updates on the moves regarding Liverpool, Manchester United and Kylian Mbappe. Follow all the latest transfer news, rumors and gossip about standard sport‘s LIVE Blog!
Huge twist on Chelsea’s bid for Moises Caicedo
Moises Caicedo was absent from Brighton’s friendly against Rayo Vallecano yesterday, putting Chelsea on high alert.
Talks have yet to come to a conclusion as the Seagulls are demanding £100m for the wanton midfielder.
Brighton attributed Caicedo’s absence to a hamstring injury but Roberto De Zerbi was less clear in his post-match response.
“I don’t know,” he said when asked if Caicedo will be in training today.
“If Moises leaves, we will find another important player. If Moises stays, I’ll be happy for us. It is not my problem. At Brighton it’s possible to lose some players; we are always making progress.”
Brighton, meanwhile, have agreed a deal to sign Chelsea’s target Mohammed Kudus to bolster their midfield.
The latest on the Harry Kane transfer saga
Ange Postecoglou has dismissed the notion Bayern Munich had given Tottenham a deadline for accepting an offer for Harry Kane.
The German giants tried to pressure Spurs into a sale late last week but their £86million plus match offer was ignored.
After defeating Shakhtar, in which Kane scored four goals, Postecoglou explained: “From my point of view, I don’t know what ‘deadline’ means.
“We know there is a deadline and that is the end of the transfer window. In addition, I am regularly in open dialogue with Harry and the club.
“I said it [the club] If the status quo changes, please let me know. I don’t need to know about the comings and goings in between. I just want to deal with what’s ahead because regardless of the outcome, I still have to build a team here.
“I can barely wait for it [around] for a decision on how to proceed. We have neither the time nor the luxury for that. I work with what is in front of me. You saw today that Harry is definitely invested in what we are doing and we will continue to be so unless things change.”
