Transfer the news LIVE! Raphinha at Arsenal as Mudryk prepares for Chelsea FC medical; Tottenham boost Trossard

Chelsea beat Arsenal to the signing of transfer target Mykhaylo Mudryk with a remarkable 11th-hour diversion bid. The Gunners were increasingly confident they would sign the Shakhtar winger, but it is in west London that he is heading for a deal worth up to £89million. A medical examination is supposed to be imminent.

The Blues have been heavily linked with a renewed offer for Marcus Thuram after new signing Joao Felix was promptly banned for a red card on his debut. Noni Madueke is another target as well as Moises Caicedo.

Tottenham are still at odds with Sporting CP over Pedro Porro, but they have been given a major boost in their bid to sign Leandro Trossard. Wout Weghorst’s transfer to Manchester United has been confirmed, while Lionel Messi could apparently follow arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo to Saudi Arabia on another blockbuster deal worth £245m a year.
