European transfer talk: Bravo, Damiao and Belhanda

Transfer talk from the continent with knock-on effects for Arsenal, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.

Barcelona have signed their second goalkeeper of the summer. Following on from signing Marc-Andre ter Stegen they have now officially snapped up Claudio Bravo from Real Sociedad.

FC Barcelona and Real Sociedad have reached an agreement for the transfer of goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Claudio Bravo will sign a contract with FC Barcelona for the next four seasons.

The Chilean and the German will be expected to fight for the first-team spot at the Nou Camp after the departure of Victor Valdes.

AC Milan are interested in long-term Tottenham target Leandro Damiao. The player, who only recently joined Santos from Internacional, has gone down in stock in recent months due to a barren spell in front of goal and persistent injury woe.

But Milan are hoping to lure Santos into a sale by offering them former prodigal son Robinho as part of any deal.

AS Roma have joined the growing throng of teams interested in Younes Belhanda. The former Montpellier star is currently in Ukraine with Dynamo Kiev but wants to leave the country along with many top stars this summer due to the internal conflict and troubles with neighbouring Russia.

Roma boss Rudi Garcia is said to be a big fan of the 24-year-old playmaker.

Udinese have signed French striker Cyril Thereau from Chievo Verona. The 31-year-old turned down interest from Atalanta and Torino in order to join Zebrette on a four-year deal.

He is the club's third summer signing behind Nabil Jaadi and Rodrigo Aguirre.

Marseille look set to bring in the winger they hope will replace Mathieu Valbuena at the club - with a deal set to be completed for Romain Alessandrini of Rennes. The 25-year-old has been linked with Marseille for a number of months now and he has finally got his move.
