Premier League transfer news and rumours

Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal for the Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gunners will pay €63-65m (£55-57m) for the Gabon international. The transfer will be completed once Dortmund recruit a replacement. However, Arsenal are refusing to meet West Bromwich Albion’s £20m valuation of defender Jonny Evans. More on those stories here.

Manchester United transfer target Fabinho says he wants a summer move away from Monaco. The Brazil international has been linked with United over the past two summers. Details here.

Chelsea’s bid to sign Roma striker Edin Dzeko is at an end after they failed to come to an agreement with the Serie A side. Failure to sign a new striker before the transfer deadline is likely to mean Michy Batshuayi stays at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester City are aiming to complete the £57m signing of defender Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao in the next 48 hours. Laporte said his farewells to his team-mates at the La Liga side over the weekend.

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho is in talks with French side Rennes over a £9m move.

Watford manager Javi Gracia is interested in Sunderland midfielder Didier Ndong.

West Bromwich Albion are willing to bid £18m for Watford striker Troy Deeney.

Newcastle United could return with a third and final offer for Feyenoord striker Nicolai Jorgensen. Feyenoord are still open to an exit for the Denmark international.

Crystal Palace are being linked with Burnley striker Ashley Barnes. The 28-year-old has 18 months left on his contract at Turf Moor.

Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Lucas Moura was left out of Paris Saint-Germain’s squad for their clash with Montpellier at the weekend. The move is being seen as proof that a Tottenham transfer is imminent although the Brazilian has been very much a bit-part player at PSG this season.
