Transfer news: Monday, August 10

Liverpool will face competition from Tottenham, West Ham and Everton for Bournemouth star David Brooks.

Jurgen Klopp wants a midfielder to replace Adam Lallana in his title-winning squad and believes Brooks fits the bill perfectly.

The Wales international, 23, returned from long-term injury post-lockdown and impressed, despite the Cherries failing to stay in the Premier League.

The Star report he has plenty of suitors and could cost as much as £35million as Bournemouth try to cash in.

One player set to move to Anfield, according to The Echo, is Greek left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas.

Liverpool have reportedly agreed an £11.75m deal with Olympiacos after turning their attentions away from Jamal Lewis due to Norwich’s £20m valuation.

Tsimikas, 24, is expected to discuss personal terms and could complete his medical at the start of next week.

Arsenal, meanwhile, will reportedly sell Alexandre Lacazette to Atletico Madrid when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signs a new deal.

According to The Star, Lacazette can complete a £30m switch to the Spanish capital once their captain is tied down with a long-term contract.  

Lucas Torreira is another Arsenal star who could leave the Emirates this summer to help fund a move for Atletico’s Thomas Partey.

The Express report the Gunners are prepared to cash in on the Uruguayan after two mixed seasons in North London and AC Milan would be interested in buying him.

Boss Mikel Arteta also faces a fight to keep hold of back-up stopper Emiliano Martinez, who impressed after Bernd Leno’s season was ended through injury.

In an interview with Argentine radio station Continental, Martinez said the only way he would stay at the club would be if he was guaranteed more games.

A lack of action is also a problem for Manchester United‘s Dean Henderson, with The Standard reporting he will once again be loaned out as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer backs under-fire No1 David De Gea.

They claim United are already in talks with Sheffield United over a third season at Bramall Lane for the 23-year-old keeper.

The Blades have also been tipped to move for Wigan full-back Antonee Robinson, who saw a move to AC Milan fall through on transfer deadline day back in January.

Robinson, 23, is a US international and The Sun say he will cost Chris Wilder’s side just £1.5m due to the Latics being in administration. 

Back in the capital, Crystal Palace have slapped an £8m price-tag on Christian Benteke as they look to raise funds to move for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr

Despite Watford’s relegation, Sarr impressed in his first season in the Premier League and the Hornets have put him up for sale at £40m.

Wolves and Liverpool have also been linked with a move for the 22-year-old Senegal international but The Mail believe Palace are at the front of the queue.

The Eagles had previously been linked with Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher but The Mail report top-flight newcomers Leeds are keen on a move for the midfielder.

Gallagher, 20, impressed during loan spells at Charlton and Swansea in the Championship last season and the Blues want to loan him to a Premier League club for the forthcoming campaign.

Leeds are also eyeing up a £7m deal for Slavia Prague’s Nicolae Stanciu as Marcelo Bielsa wants to make five signings before the season kicks off in a month’s time.
