TRANSFER NEWS LIVE

- Manchester United have agreed an £80m deal to sign Leicester City defender Harry Maguire

- Reports in France claim Arsenal have launched a £72m bid for Lille sensation Nicolas Pepe

- Tottenham have been handed a boost in the hunt for Dinamo Zagreb winger Dani Olmo

Eriksen to Man Utd?

Manchester United have zero chance of signing Christian Eriksen from Tottenham, according to the Guardian.

Eriksen, who is out of contract at the end of the upcoming season, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford as a potential replacement for Real Madrid target Paul Pogba.

The Tottenham star is also being considered by the Spanish giants but head coach Zinedine Zidane favours a swoop for Pogba.

Eriksen has admitted he "might want to try something new" but is running out of options as the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich target different areas of the pitch to strengthen.

Spurs face the prospect of being forced to cash in before the transfer deadline on August 8 because of his contract situation.

But a move to Old Trafford is out of the question because they failed to qualify for the Champions League.

Malcom to Arsenal?

Arsenal have held talks with Malcom's representatives regarding a move to the Emirates, according to The Sun.

Barcelona are keen to keep hold of the 22-year-old though, with a number of forward players unsettled at the Nou Camp.

Club chiefs are understood to have slapped a £50m price tag on his head, pricing Arsenal out of a move.

Furthermore, Malcolm is also understood to be asking for wages worth £200,000-a-week, which would immediately make him one of the top earners at the Emirates.

The Gunners aren't thought to have that much of their wage budget to spare, with Mesut Ozil the only player currently earning more than that.

To add further doubt to the move, the talks between Arsenal and the player's party are not thought to have gone well.

The two are understood to be poles apart on agreeing any kind of deal, leaving the Gunners most likely to look elsewhere.

Maguire to Man Utd?

Manchester United will improve their defence by signing Harry Maguire - but the Leicester City ace is no Virgil van Dijk.

That is according to former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler.

"Harry Maguire is no Virgil van Dijk," he wrote in the Sunday Mirror.

"But if Leicester value the England defender at £90m and there is a club out there willing to stump-up the cash, then that is his true worth in the 2019 transfer market.

"It is all about supply and demand. Eighteen months ago, Van Dijk cost Liverpool £75m from Southampton and observers thought the game had gone crazy.

"What an astute piece of business that looks now.

"Is Maguire as good as Van Dijk? No. But he would still improve most teams in the Premier League - and If Manchester United decide to pay, they know he WILL make them far more formidable."

Maguire to Man Utd?

Manchester United have agreed an £80m fee with Leicester City for Harry Maguire.

The England international will undergo a medical tomorrow, according to The Sun.

Maguire, who has been with Leicester at the training camp in France, will fly to Manchester tomorrow.

United will pay an initial £60m with a further £20m in instalments.

Pepe to Arsenal?

Arsenal have launched a £72m bid for Lille sensation Nicolas Pepe, according to TF1.

Pepe has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs including Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United after an impressive campaign in Ligue 1.

Arsenal are understood to have a £45m transfer budget following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.

The kitty could be swelled by selling unwanted players but the likes of Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi are proving hard to shift.

Olmo to Tottenham?

Tottenham have been handed a boost in the hunt for Dani Olmo.

Manchester United have also been linked with the Dinamo Zagreb winger but he only has plans to join a Champions League club, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Olmo, who helped Spain to European Under-21 Championship glory, is also reportedly set to swerve a move to Spain.

That leaves Bayern Munich and Liverpool as Tottenham's only other rivals.
