Transfer news LIVE: Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool done deals and rumours

Follow the latest transfer news and rumours live from the second week of the summer window as Premier League clubs look to strengthen their squads, with European football also set to resume this week. Arsenal are looking at numerous midfield options as they aim to ensure further trophies after last weekend’s FA Cup final win, with Willian, Philippe Coutinho and Thomas Partey all on Mikel Arteta’s radar.

Meanwhile, Manchester United‘s saga with Jadon Sancho looks set to wrap up any day now, with a five-year deal on the table for the youngster as Alexis Sanchez’s time as a United player seemingly nears its end.

It is not clear whether the Gunners can afford or even desire to bring both players as well as Willian to the Emirates, but they are keeping tabs on all three.
