TRANSFER NEWS LIVE: Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd rumours and gossip ahead of the summer window.
– Manchester United plotting £50m raid on Fulham for Ryan Sessegnon
– Chelsea face paying £80m to sign Everton forward Richarlison
– Arsenal are plotting to sign £40m-rated Mainz defender Jean-Philippe Gbamin
Man Utd plot £50m Sessegnon raid
Manchester United are ready to pay £50m for Fulham’s wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon, according to the Daily Express.
The 18-year-old is reportedly stalling on a contract extension at Craven Cottage, alerting Old Trafford bosses.
Sessegnon played a key role in Fulham’s promotion last season but could be reluctant to stay if they drop back into the Championship.
Despite being one of the Whites’ key players, Claudio Ranieri has handed him limited playing tine.
£80m Richarlison to Chelsea?
Velox SportsTV understands Chelsea are keen admirers of Everton forward Richarlison.
AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid are also watching the Brazilian star.
Richarlison has scored 10 times in 23 league outings for the Toffees since joining from Watford for £40m last summer.
Everton bracing themselves for a fierce battle to retain the 21-year-old – and they will demand double what they paid.
£40m Arsenal problem
Unai Emery wants to solve Arsenal’s defensive problems by signing Mainz ace Jean-Philippe Gbamin.
Arsenal attempted to sign Gbamin last summer but their bid for the 23-year-old failed.
According to the Daily Express, Emery will go back in for Gbamin when the summer window opens.
Mainz want £40m, however, which is £5m short of Arsenal’s total transfer budget.
