Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea continue to be great protagonists in the summer transfer market. Spurs have already added a fourth player to their squad in the form of Everton’s Richarlison and are now tracking Jesse Lingard along with Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence.
At Arsenal, the £45m arrival of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City is expected imminently after the Brazilian was seen wearing the number 9 shirt at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners are also eyeing Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, although they face stiff competition from Manchester United, with the Argentina international believed to prefer a move to Old Trafford and a reunion with Erik ten Hag.
Chelsea are yet to make their historic first signing under new owner Todd Boehly, though they are trying to beat Barcelona to Raphinha, remove Ousmane Dembele from the Catalans and add Raheem Sterling and Matthijs de Ligt. Follow all the latest rumors below!

Salah signs a new contract!
It is the opposite of a dispute: it is an agreement! Mohamed Salah has agreed a new three-year contract with Liverpool.
“I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club,” he said. “It is a happy day for everyone. It takes a bit of time, I think, to renew, but now that it’s all done, we just have to focus on what’s next.
“I think you can see in the last five or six years that the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we came close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.
“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We also have new signings. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go all out again.”

Rollercoaster at OM
A whirlwind of hours for Marseille and Matteo Guendouzi. The manager, Jorge Sampaoli, retired this morning by surprise, so Guendouzi has a new boss to impress.
The deal is worth around £10m, with the midfielder’s loan converted into a permanent transfer with Marseille avoiding relegation due to a clause. In fact, they finished second in Ligue 1, so the new man in charge has a job on his hands.

Raphinha: Chelsea still confident of landing Leeds star
Chelsea remain hopeful of completing a deal to sign Leeds United striker Raphinha.
The Brazilian is one of the most in-demand players on the market this summer, with Arsenal interested and Barcelona also pursuing his signing.
While the La Liga giants had struggled financially of late, a £179m cash injection could help their cause, and the 25-year-old thought he preferred the idea of a move to Spain.
Raphinha has long hoped for a move from Barcelona this summer, but Chelsea have struck a deal with Leeds that the Catalan giants are understood to be yet to match.
