09:30 UPDATE: Romelu Lukaku bid

Inter Milan have finally agreed to meet Manchester United’s valuation of Romelu Lukaku.

That’s according to The Sun, who claim Antonio Conte’s side are prepared to pay £75million for the Belgian international.

But there’s a catch.

Inter have proposed a deal that includes staggered payments and performance-related bonuses to meet the required fee.

It’s claimed the Serie A side will pay an initial £40million with a further £20m to be handed throughout the course of a year and another £15m if Lukaku meets ‘performance criteria’.

09:15 UPDATE: Matthijs de Ligt medical

Matthijs de Ligt is undergoing his Juventus medical today.

The 19-year-old landed in Turin last night to complete his £67million move to the Serie A champions.

Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris-Saint Germain all challenged for the Dutch defender – but Maurizio Sarri has won the battle.

After arriving by private jet, the defender said: “I am happy to be here.”

09:00 UPDATE: Tuchel: I know Neymar wanted to leave

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel admits he knew Neymar wanted to leave before the start of the Copa America.

Neymar, 27, joined PSG from Barcelona on a five-year deal for a world-record transfer fee of £200m in 2017.

But his two-year spell at the Parc des Princes could be over.

“Did I know he wanted to leave? Yes, I found out before the Copa America. But it is something between the club and Ney,” Tuchel told RMC.

08:45 UPDATE: Roy Hodgson on Zaha

Roy Hodgson has revealed Arsenal have not made a bid anywhere near their asking price for Wilfried Zaha.

The Eagles have rejected a £40million offer for the 26-year-old but Arsenal manager Unai Emery is still determined to sign the winger.

Crystal Palace boss Hodgson has revealed Arsenal need to pay a lot more if they want to sign Zaha though.

“I don’t think Arsenal have actually made a bid that has come anywhere near our valuation,” Hodgson said.

“I’m sure the player realises that if someone’s going to take him away from us, he’ll expect clubs to pay the market value.”

08:30 UPDATE: Paul Pogba latest

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to build his team around midfielder Paul Pogba despite claims he’ll leave Old Trafford this summer.

Pogba’s agent recently told The Times that the 26-year-old intends to leave the club, while the player said in Tokyo last month he could seek a new challenge elsewhere amid reports linking him to Juventus and Real Madrid

“Paul is a fantastic player, a fantastic human being and has always been a great professional,” Solskjaer told reporters in Perth.

“I said (previously), ‘if he’s in your squad, you’d build your team around him’… I haven’t changed that much since then, so I’d say the same now.”

08:00 UPDATE: Arsenal agree Everton fee

Arsenal have agreed a fee with Gremio for Everton Soares.

Everton, 23, made quite an impression to help Brazil win the Copa America – scoring three goals and providing two assists in six appearances.

And the Gunners are close to snapping up his signature.

Fox Sports claim a £36million deal has been agreed between the two clubs and Everton will undergo a medical in Brazil ahead of his proposed transfer.

07:45 UPDATE: Liverpool exit

Simon Mignolet is looking for regular first-team football after spending the season as back-up to Alisson Becker.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted he wants the Belgian goalkeeper to remain for next season.

But Mignolet’s agent has different ideas.

“The goalkeeper game of musical chairs hasn’t started yet,” his agent told Belgian publication Les Sports Plus. “It’s important for Simon to play somewhere, and our goal is still to make him leave.

“He’s still got a lot to offer, and if we have an offer, we’re counting on Liverpool making an effort.”
