Transfer News LIVE updates: Man Utd ‘set to complete signing’, Arsenal, Liverpool latest

Transfer News LIVE updates: Latest breaking gossip, rumours and deals from Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and more.

6.10pm: Manchester United are set to complete the signing of Alex Sandro from Juventus, according to La Stampa.

The Italian publication claim details of Sandro’s switch to Old Trafford will be confirmed in the next few days.

Matteo Darmain is expected to move in the opposite direction in a separate deal.

5.40pm: Arsenal forward Lucas Perez – remember him? – is open to joining Lazio.

Perez’s agent Rodrigo Fernandez told Lalaziosiamonoi.it: “Lazio asked for him last year, but nothing came of it.

“Lucas has always liked Lazio and the city of Rome, plus his great friend, Luis Alberto, plays for them.

“He still has two years left on his contract with Arsenal, so we need to talk to them first.

“As for Lucas, he likes the idea of playing for Lazio, but it’s still too early to talk about it.”

2.45pm: Manchester United are plotting a sensational swoop for Leonardo Bonucci.

The Italy legend and AC Milan central defender has become one of Jose Mourinho’s top transfer priorities, according to Tuttosport.

Mourinho apparently believes he can tempt Bonucci, 30, to head to Old Trafford this summer.

1.40pm: Steven Gerrard wants young West Ham defender Reece Burke to be his next signing at Rangers.

The Mirror say the Liverpool legend has his eye on the Hammers centre-half.

Burke spent the bulk of last season on loan at Bolton in the Championship as they avoided relegation. 

Scott Arfield has already joined Gers from Burnley, but adding Burke to their squad is not a guarantee as Sheffield Wednesday are apparently leading the race for the 21-year-old. 

12.40pm: Manchester United have held informal talks with Willian.

The Chelsea winger is being eyed for a reunion with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

And the Manchester Evening News say initial discussions have already taken place this month.

11.30am: Arsenal are in talks to sign Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund.

The centre-half could become the Gunners’ first summer addition.

The 29-year-old is valued at around £15m.

10.20am: Rangers have denied making a bid for Slovakia star Martin Skrtel.

Gers boss Steven Gerrard played with Skrtel at Liverpool and has been linked with a swoop for the Fenerbahce man.

But the Glasgow giants say they’ve not slapped down an offer for the centre-back.
