Chelsea are set to clinch the signing of Wesley Fofana from Leicester, who they beat 2-1 on Saturday. Everton’s Anthony Gordon and Barcelona’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are also wanted by Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.

Manchester United are pursuing Ajax winger Antony with intent and had a £76million bid for the player rejected. The Brazilian is attempting to force a move to Old Trafford by refusing to play for the Amsterdam outfit.

Elsewhere, Liverpool could make a late move to sign a midfielder, Arsenal and Tottenham may raid Wolves for Pedro Neto and Adama Traore respectively and West Ham, Everton and Newcastle could be among the other clubs to make more signings.

Express Sport keeps you updated with all the latest transfer rumours and done deals below…

Tottenham eye Chelsea deal

Tottenham want to sign defender Trevoh Chalobah from Chelsea, according to reports. 

Chalobah is likely to see his game time limited at Stamford Bridge when the Blues confirm the arrival of Wesley Fofana from Leicester next week. 

The 23-year-old started Saturday’s 2-1 win over the Foxes but might not get much more game time this term.

The Evening Standard claim that Tottenham are keen to sign the former Ipswich Town loanee. 

Spurs could be in the market for another centre-back after losing Joe Rodon to Stade Rennes. 

Arsenal ‘in the box seat’ to sign Marco Asensio

Arsenal are reportedly ahead of Manchester United in the race to sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid. 

The Spaniard is set to leave Madrid in search of regular game time. 

The Mirror claim that Arsenal are ‘in the box seat’ for a deal. United have also been linked. 


Antony to Man Utd twist

Manchester United transfer target Antony is reportedly refusing to play for Alax in a bid to move to the Red Devils. 

United have chased Antony all summer and recently had a £67m (80m) bid rejected. 

The Mirror claim that Antony has now refused to play for the Eredivisie side in order to force a move. The 22-year-old was absent from their 1-0 win over Sparta Rotterdam last week.
