Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea updates plus latest gossip – Mirror.co.uk

It’s fair to say the transfer window excitement is upon is.

In the Premier League, Chelsea have wasted no time strengthening their ranks and their rivals are looking to do the same, including Manchester United.

The Red Devils have identified Jadon Sancho as their No.1 target and are also in the hunt for a new defender.

Elsewhere, Liverpool are still keeping tabs on Thiago Alcantara at Bayern Munich while Arsenal are focusing on tying captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to a new deal before bringing in new players.

But perhaps the biggest story of the week so far is that of Lionel Messi, who could leave Barcelona following their Champions League humiliation; and Manchester City are keen to bring him to England.
