Man City reach verbal agreement

Al-Ittihad are preparing a £118m bid for Mohamed Salah, despite Liverpool insisting their 31-year-old Egypt forward is not for sale.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp would be “furious” if the Reds are tempted to accept Saudi side Al-Ittihad’s offer for Salah with the transfer deadline on Friday.

Tottenham Hotspur are also considering a move for Crystal Palace’s England forward Eberechi Eze, 25, after a move for Nottingham Forest’s Wales forward Brennan Johnson, 22, stalled.

Manchester United want to sign a midfielder before the transfer deadline, with Fiorentina’s Morocco international Sofyan Amrabat, 27, their prime target.

Fiorentina have rejected United‘s £1.7m loan offer for Amrabat but will consider a deal with an obligation to buy.

Manchester United have also contacted Tottenham over a deal for 28-year-old Denmark midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Bayern Munich have looking at 28-year-old Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha, who is open to the switch and is valued at 90m euros (£77m) by the London club.

Bayern are set to offer up to £50m for Palhinha and have turned to the Portugal international because there are doubts over their move for Chelsea’s 24-year-old English defender Trevoh Chalobah.

Borussia Dortmund have reached a verbal agreement to sign Southampton and Germany defender Armel Bella-Kotchap, 21, on a loan deal with an option to buy.

Inter Milan are looking at making a move for Tottenham’s 26-year-old French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, who spent last season on loan at Napoli.

Luton Town are set to sign Manchester United’s 21-year-old English defender Teden Mengi. Nottingham Forest are closing in on a deal to take 22-year-old England winger Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea.
