Lliverpool fan Conor Coady is about to join Everton. No longer assured of his place in Wolves’ roster following their acquisition of Nathan Collins from Burnley, the popular Scouser is wanted by Frank Lampard now that Ben Godfrey has been sidelined indefinitely with a broken ankle. Godfrey was injured in Everton’s Matchday 1 loss to Chelsea, a game in which fellow injury-prone centre-back Yerry Mina was also left lame.
Everton expect to complete a loan deal with an option to buy the 29-year-old England international once personal terms have been agreed. Spotted in the directors’ box at Goodison Park on Saturday, the Lille midfielder Amadou Onana is also expected to be revealed as an Everton player on Monday.
Despite interest from Arsenal and Newcastle, wolves hope to strike a deal for the Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes. With 32 caps for Portugal to his name, the 25-year-old looks set to head to Molineux for a fee of around £27million.
Forced to play Christian Eriksen in a false nine on Sunday because they didn’t have a fit striker, Manchester United reportedly had a £9m bid for Marco Arnautovic refused by Bologna. Whether or not they will make an improved one remains to be seen but, in the interest of maintaining what passes for fan harmony at Old Trafford, they should probably quietly drop any plans to sign the controversial 33-year-old.
Author of 39 goals in 135 appearances during his time at Manchester City, the Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane could be on their way back to Greater Manchester, according to the Mirror. With his first-team spot no longer guaranteed following Sadio Mane’s arrival at the Bundesliga champions, Sane was the subject of a ‘surprise offer’ from United.
After seeing their midfield ripped apart by Brighton on several occasions, United are looking increasingly desperate to sign Frankie de Jong from Barcelona, despite all the available evidence suggesting he has no interest in going to Old Trafford. Also interested in De Jong, chelsea have reportedly offered Barca £59m plus Marcos Alonso for the highly sought-after Dutchman.
Whatever his next destination, Alonso is determined to leave Chelsea in the coming days. Meanwhile, Timo WernerStamford Bridge’s exit is expected to be confirmed once details of his return to RB Leipzig have been finalized.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is another player who appears to be headed out of Stamford Bridge after asking to leave the club, with Leicester City, Southampton and Borussia Dortmund all reportedly interested in securing the services of – cliche alert! – unpredictable winger.
Undesirable at Tottenham Hotspur, Giovanor Lo Celso left for Villarreal, after impressing Unai Emery during a recent six-month loan spell at the Spanish club. Negotiations are ongoing, with Spurs valuing the Argentina midfielder at €30m (£25m) while Villarreal are trying to land them at €20m (£17m). Similarly surplus to requirements at West Ham following the arrival of Maxwel Cornet from Burnley, Nikola Vlasic looks Torino– jump.
Finally, the Instagram staples that are Alexis Sánchezdogs can expect long, leisurely walks around the Old Port of Marseilles now that their owner and his employers at Inter have agreed to scrap his contract so he can go and ply his trade in Ligue 1.
