Transfer News LIVE: Liverpool agree Keita deal claim, Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd gossip

Transfer News LIVE: The latest gossip, done deals and rumours from the Premier League with the window closing on Thursday.

3.15pm: Chelsea are trying to complete a deal for Danny Drinkwater of Leicester.

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol revealed the news, but says the Foxes’ valuation is still a long way above what the champions are prepared to pay.

And Antonio Conte is trying to get Fernando Llorente out of Swansea too, but a deal hinges on the Swans landing Wilfried Bony from Swansea.

2.30pm: Liverpool have agreed a deal for Naby Keita and he will join the club next summer.

Paul Joyce tweeted: "Liverpool agree club record deal with RB Leipzig for Naby Keita which will see him sign NEXT SUMMER.

"Lvpl paid premium now on top of next summer’s £48million release clause."

Barcelona have completed the £135.5m signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund.

Barca are looking for replacements for Neymar after he left for Paris St-Germain in a record-breaking £198m deal.

1pm: Liverpool are the favourites to sign Bayern Munich star Renato Sanches on loan.

Kaveh Solhekol said on Sky Sports: “Some exciting news for Liverpool supporters reaching us from our colleagues at Sky in Italy.

“They’re reporting Liverpool are favourites to sign Renato Sanches on loan from Bayern Munich.

“The Portugal midfielder wants more game time and he’s frustrated in Germany after moving to Bayern for £27m in May last year.

“Chelsea and Monaco are some of the other clubs who are interested. Sanches’ agent Jorge Mendes was at the Monaco game last night but he’s also involved in the Mbappe deal.

“Sanches meanwhile didn’t play for Bayern on Saturday and they say he’d asked for time off to think about some offers.”

12.25pm: Odds have tumbled on Gareth Bale joining Manchester United and Marcus Rashford heading to Barcelona.

Bookies Ladbrokes have slashed the Welshman’s price of moving to Old Trafford this week from 10/1 to 4/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "We're strapping ourselves in for a hectic few days before the transfer window slams shut and it looks as though Mourinho isn't quite finished in the market.

“Barca have money to spend and with Rashford high on their wishlist, they might just make United an offer they can't refuse."

11.45am: Borussia Dortmund are considering a shock raid for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.

The Bundesliga side are looking for a replacement for Ousmane Dembele as he puts the finishing touches on his move to Barcelona.

Dortmund received £130m for the winger and could now reinvest that money by bringing Ozil to the club, according to The Sun.

The Germany international has stalled on signing a new contract at the Emirates along with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexis Sanchez.

Ozil has been criticised for his performances since the start of the season.

11.20am: Jurgen Klopp has indicated Divock Origi could leave on loan before the transfer window slams shut.

Origi finds himself down the pecking order with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge ahead of him.
