Premier League transfer news and transfer rumours

Manchester United have yet to meet with Zinedine Zidane over their manager’s job. More details here.

Arsenal are being linked with an unlikely-sounding transfer swap deal involving Mesut Ozil and Real Madrid’s Spain international Isco. Click here for more.

Chelsea are also being linked with a swap deal. Some outlets are claiming that striker Alvaro Morata could head to AC Milan with Gonzalo Higuain moving in the opposite direction. But with Higuain now 31 years old it’s difficult to see the Blues agreeing to such a deal. Higuain played under Maurizio Sarri at Napoli. Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is wanted by Thierry Henry at Monaco.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel is on the verge of being sacked after losing the support of the Foxes players.

Fulham are being linked with Leicester City full-back Danny Simpson.

Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross is being linked with Liverpool and Southampton.
