Remy to join Sanchez at Arsenal?

Arsenal are closing in on a triple signing which will see them strengthen their attack and defence. Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez were already believed to be almost done, and now Loic Remy is claimed to be nearing a switch. The Mirror report the QPR striker is yet to agree personal terms, but an agreement between the R's and Arsenal is 'close' with talks between the two clubs ongoing. Remy will add pace into Arsenal's attack and depth alongside Oliver Giroud, with Alexis Sanchez expected to operate in wide areas.

Liverpool not giving up on Moreno, Markovic medical due

The Evening Standard report that Liverpool still harbour hope of doing a deal for Sevilla's Alberto Moreno. The two clubs were £4 million apart in fee before ending negotiations last month, but a potential sale of Luis Suarez and £75 million transfer fee will allow them to be more generous with their funds.

The Reds are still expected to close a deal for £20 million Lazar Markovic this week, with the player due to fly in for a medical, the paper confirm.

West Ham told to up Konoplyanka bid

Manchester United may miss out on Yevhen Konoplyanka to West Ham, with the Hammers offering £9.5 million. The Telegraph report however that Dnipro will not sell the winger for less than his £12 million release clause. Liverpool came close to signing him in January, with Manchester United linked more prominently this summer transfer window.

Manchester United and Juventus barter

Manchester United's pursuit of Arturo Vidal has an extra edge, after the Italians made a bid of their own for Red Devils left-back Patrice Evra. The Mail report that Evra is comfortable leaving, with United having secured Luke Shaw as a replacement. However the Italian champions have only submitted an offer of £2 million.

The same report claims Juventus are 'holding out' for £37 million for Arturo Vidal, with United yet to lodge a formal bid. Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport reported earlier in the day that talks between the Red Devils and Juventus over the midfielder were 'well underway'. Portuguese winger Nani has also been touted as a potential makeweight.
