Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd to make Fernandes bid, Arsenal offer, Liverpool hint, Chelsea | Football | Sport

19:30 UPDATE: Tottenham sent warning

Roma have told Tottenham to forget about signing midfield sensation Nicolo Zaniolo.

Roma sporting director Gianluca Petrachi insists the 20-year-old is not for sale.

I take this opportunity to say that when I appreciated Zaniolo with all the affection of this world to return to the tracks if he had left, it was immediately said that Petrachi put Zaniolo up for sale,” he said.

“This is not true. I have to work to try to get the best out of Zaniolo.

“I am also a very practical person, I have direct contact with my players. I never put Zaniolo up for sale, nor did I say it was on the market.

“The market is full of pitfalls, but today Zaniolo is not on the market.

19:05 UPDATE: Maguire development

Man Utd target Harry Maguire has told his Leicester team-mates that he wants to leave the club.

The announcement was made at the end of last week when the team were in France for pre-season.

And since returning to the UK, Leicester chiefs have told Maguire that he may leave, so long as a suitable bid comes in for him.

Both United and their rivals Manchester City want the buy Maguire, but Leicester have made it clear they won’t sell for less than £80m.

18:45 UPDATE: Fernandes to Man Utd development

Man Utd are readying their first bid for Bruno Fernandes.

The Independent claim the Red Devils will make their first offer in the next three weeks.

Whether United make a move for Fernandes is not dependent on Paul Pogba’s Old Trafford future.

United are ready to pay over £50m for the Portugal international, even if Pogba stays this summer.

18:20 UPDATE: Arsenal bid

Arsenal have matched Tottenham’s bid for Saint-Etienne defender William Saliba.

Tottenham tried to hijack Arsenal’s move for the defender with a £27million (€30m) offer on Saturday.

However, RMC Sport claim Arsenal have matched the bid Spurs have tabled, which promises Saint Etienne more than the £27m all-in which Emirates chiefs had proposed.

Saint Etienne now want to take some time to discover Saliba’s preference as well as seeing whether they can wrangle more cash.

17:55 UPDATE: Liverpool hint

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has hinted he is considering signing a new defender this summer.

“We will see. What can I say?” Klopp said.

“I said already, we have to think about everything and in the end maybe we do nothing, but we will see.

“Of course, as you can imagine, we will have a look at all the things around us.

“Of course we have lost a left-back and today you saw two pretty young ones, James [Milner] has played it and all that stuff.

“As I said, we will see.”

17:30 UPDATE: Chelsea done deal

Mason Mount has signed a new five-year deal at Chelsea.

“It’s a massively proud moment for myself and my family,” Mount, 20, said.

“It was always my goal to play for the first team one day. I’m really looking forward to the coming season now and working hard to have an impact here at Chelsea.

“I’ve been at the club for a long time already and hopefully I’ll stay for a long time to come.”

Mount spent last season on loan at Derby under Frank Lampard.
