Tottenham look set to miss out on signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to Sport.

The 23-year-old is a Barcelona transfer target and reportedly has his heart set on the Catalan club.

Juventus are weighing up a bid to sign Real Madrid full-back Marcelo,according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Italian giants have already added Cristiano Ronaldo to their ranks this summer but they may head back to Madrid as they look for further signings.

Leicester City are looking to replace Riyad Mahrez with Torino winger Iago Falque, according to Tuttosport.

The 28-year-old has previously played in the Premier League with Tottenham.

Reports say that the Foxes could face competition from West Ham and Southampton.

Barcelona have tabled a second bid - believed to be worth up to £53m - for Chelsea winger Willian, Sky Sports News reports.

Sky Sports say that the La Liga club started their pursuit as far back as three months ago, with Manchester United also linked with a move.

Spanish paper Sport's front page today reports that Chelsea will be holding out for €200m (around £176m) for Eden Hazard amid rumours of a potential move to Barcelona.

The Catalan club feel the price is excessive and will hold off making an official bid until Chelsea's valuation of the player comes down.

Everton target Yerry Mina has broken his silence on his future after reports he is set to quit Barcelona. 

The  Colombia defender  told Spanish outlet Marca: "I want to make the best decision, but being calm is most important. 

"I have fulfilled a dream arriving at Barcelona, but I had some very difficult moments. I want a team where I’m calm and can receive minutes."

N'Golo Kante has been a star for England

Barcelona are keen to sign Chelsea’s midfield dynamo N’Golo Kante in a deal which could see Andre Gomes heading for Stamford Bridge, according to Sky in Italy.

Chelsea are unlikely to want to lose one of the prized assets. However, it’s understood Barca have proposed a cash plus player deal to Chelsea’s board and are awaiting a response.

It’s expected that the Portuguese midfielder,  a reported target for both Arsenal and Juventus, will be allowed to leave the Nou Camp, with Barca valuing him at around £17.5m.

The 24-year old failed to make Portugal’s World Cup squad and is not part of Barca’s squad heading for the US for pre-season.

A £17.5m deal for Lille's Yves Bissouma to Brighton is expected to be announced very shortly, according to French publication L'Equipe.

The 21-year-old midfielder has reportedly agreed personal terms with the south coast side, after Lyon opted to not to pursue an initial enquiry.

Bissouma has previously been linked with Tottenham and Everton.
