The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Moises Caicedo, Folarin Balogun and Harry Kane have all dominated the headlines throughout the transfer window.

Liverpool have agreed a British record fee of £111m with Brighton for midfielder Moises Caicedo.

The Ecuadorian is viewed as one of the best youngsters in world football and he enjoyed an impressive campaign last season. He could prove to be a key addition for the Reds after the loss of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and James Milner in midfield.

However, the 21-year-old is currently undecided on the move to Anfield and reports claim that his preferred destination is Chelsea.

The Blues reportedly had a bid of £80m rejected earlier in the summer and it remains to be seen whether they will come back with an improved offer.

The Harry Kane saga has dominated the summer transfer window and overshadowed the pre-season preparations of new boss Ange Postecoglou.

The North London side have been desperate to keep hold of their record goal scorer but with just one year remaining on his contract they have decided to cash in on Bayern Munich’s offer of around £86.4m.

Kane is set to have a medical with the German champions and his boss Postecoglou confirmed that the striker’s departure is “imminent.”

Football transfers can often have a butterfly effect on other teams in the division and Kane’s departure could prompt Tottenham to make a surprise move for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, according to reports.

The Belgian international arrived at Chelsea for a fee of around £97m in 2021 but he failed to hit the ground running in his first season, before returning to Inter Milan on loan.

Lukaku has been heavily linked with Inter and Juventus throughout the summer window and it seems that he has no future at Chelsea under new boss Mauricio Pochettino who has not presented the player with a squad number.

At the peak of his powers Lukaku enjoyed good goal scoring spells at Everton and Inter Milan, but it remains to be seen if Tottenham will make a move for the forward.

Is Folarin Balogun part of Mikel Arteta’s plans?

Folarain Balogun enjoyed a sensational breakthrough season on loan at Reims last season which saw him score 21 goals for Will Still’s side.

But he has been heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal despite the injury to Gabriel Jesus and it appears likely that Mikel Arteta will trust Kai Havertz and Eddie Ntekiah in the forward roles.

Balogun travelled with Arsenal on their pre-season tour but reportedly trained separately from the team in Los Angeles due to rumours of an independent transfer.

Arsenal have turned down approaches from Inter Milan and AS Monaco for the striker and they reportedly value the player at around £50m.

The latest rumours suggest that West Ham could make a bid for the player as they look to replace striker Gianluca Scamacca who returned to Italy earlier in the summer.

Leeds winger Wilfried Gnonto is a priority target for  an Everton side who have made very little progress in the transfer window so far.

Gnonto started in Leeds’ opening game of the season against Cardiff, but he did not make himself available for his side's League Cup tie against Shrewsbury.

The Italian footballer has expressed his desire to join a Premier League team this summer but Leeds are keen to keep hold of the player and they turned down an offer of £15m from Everton, according to reports.
