Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea are all lining up big-money deals as the transfer window steps up another gear with a return to pre-season now only days away. Things will likely ramp up with the new campaign in sight once again.

All three London clubs are battling for the signing of Leeds United star Raphinha, with Todd Boehly now personally overseeing a deal to potentially bring the Brazilian to Stamford Bridge alongside Raheem Sterling. Man City teammate Gabriel Jesus, meanwhile, is another to have been linked with all three, although Arsenal appear to be in pole position as talks for the striker progress.

Tottenham have already made three signings this window to continue Antonio Conte’s revolution and reports claim the manager wants a new forward signed before the end of next week with Steven Bergwijn heading to Ajax and Harry Winks in talks with Everton. Spurs target Djed Spence meanwhile has told Middlesbrough he wants to leave.

Six years on from when the Serie A side sold him to Manchester United for €100million, he will be back in Turin on a free transfer.

The deal will be officially signed and announced at the start of July.


Bayern expect Lewandowski at pre-season

The Robert Lewandowski saga continues to drag on.

Barcelona are believed to have submitted an offer for the Bayern Munich striker, who has made it clear he wants to leave this summer. However, the Bundesliga champions are expected to reject that bid.

Despite Lewandowski’s apparent desperation to join Barcelona, Bayern director Hasan Salihamidzic has told Sky Sport that he expects the 33-year-old back for pre-season training.

He said: “Lewandowski staying? Until now it’s 100%. July 12 is his first day at work, so I’m awaiting him.”


Neymar set for PSG stay

Neymar wants to stay at PSG and help the club win the Champions League for the first time.

That’s according to Wagner Ribeiro, Neymar’s former agent, who rubbished reports that the Brazilian could be on the move this window.

“Despite rumours on his departure, Neymar is only focused on PSG and he wants to win Champions League there,” Ribeiro told Goal.

“He’ll be working on this dream again.”


Spence wants Premier League football

Djed Spence has told Middlesbrough he wants to leave, manager Chris Wilder has confirmed.

Tottenham are keen to bring the wing-back to north London this summer, with fresh talks between the clubs expected to take place.

Wilder told BBC Radio Tees Sport: “Well we want the going rate. The negotiators, with my input, we’ve set a price and a fair price. We don’t want to hold anybody back.

“Djed has made it clear that he wants to go play in the Premier League, he’s earned that opportunity which he has done.

“You cannot get away from the fact that he’s had an incredible season and with that comes interest but it has to be at that right price.

“If that happens then I’m sure we’ll all walk away happy with the deal.”

Conte revolutionises transfer strategy

his time last year, Tottenham were back at square one. Their torturous search for a new manager had just taken its latest turn, after talks with Gennaro Gattuso broke down, writes Giuseppe Muro.

They had lurched from Paulo Fonseca to Erik ten Hag on a seemingly unending list of candidates and talks with Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte had collapsed.

Harry Kane was looking to leave and the apparent lack of a long-term strategy was alarming. Spurs eventually settled on Nuno Espirito Santo — and we know how that went. 12 months on and the mood at Tottenham could not be more different.

After securing Champions League qualification ahead of Arsenal on the final day of the season, the Conte revolution is continuing with a transfer strategy that has all the traits of a club with serious ambition.

Sanogo looking for club

Former Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo is looking for a club this summer.

The 29-year-old has been a free agent for the past year, unsuccessfully searching for a new club since he left Huddersfield at the end of his contract 12 months ago.

“I hope to find a club quickly, that would make me happy,” Sanogo told Sky Sports. “I need to find the joy of the pitch again, the taste of it.

“I’ve always got dreams, but you need to have the club first to get those dreams.

“There are three teams in Scotland interested in me, in Switzerland and France too. You never know.”


Marseille eye Tavares move

Marseille are keen on a move for Arsenal left-back Nuno Tavares.

Foot Mercato reports that while the Ligue 1 side have Tavares on their shortlist, no agreement has been reached with the Gunners.

Any move would likely be a loan deal, suiting Arsenal and potentially then leading to further attempts to bring Lisandro Martinez to north London.

Ajax ready to break transfer record for Bergwijn

Ajax are prepared to break their transfer record to sign Steven Bergwijn from Tottenham, reports Giuseppe Muro.

Bergwijn has been told he can leave Spurs this summer and Sebastien Haller’s transfer to Borussia Dortmund will help Ajax fund a move for the Dutch international.

Ajax’s current transfer record is the £20.25million they paid West Ham for Haller in January 2021. But the Dutch giants are ready to spend more than that to land Bergwijn.
