All this money is burning a hole in Arsène Wenger’s pocket. William Carvalho and Gelson Martins are next in the firing line. Sporting will receive a ‘Thank You’ note and £70m in their place.

Somehow Wolves persuaded Rueben Neves to leave Porto and chose the Black Country over Liverpool, Manchester or London. No, seriously, he’s heading to the midlands while £14m goes to Portugal

If he’s got a pulse, Manchester United are in the chase to sign him. Marc Batra of Borussia Dortmund is the latest to fit their stringent medical requirements.

Liverpool defender, Joe Gomez, went in search of sun, sea and sangria. Brighton and Hove Albion know exactly where he can find them.

Newcastle United looked around and think Joe Hart is the best goalkeeper they can afford.
