Transfer news and rumours UPDATES: Juventus offer Dybala for Pogba

Sky Blues midfielder to defect to City

Sydney FC look set to suffer a blow for their A-League championship defence with midfield general Josh Brillante on the verge of joining Melbourne City.

The 26-year-old's future in the Harbour City has been in doubt since a move to K-League side Pohang Steelers fell through in March.

The Sky Blues appeared confident to retain the five-time Socceroo after he returned to play a crucial part in their run to the championship, but City have managed to nab him with deal around $500,000-a-season, Goal reports.

Brillante's expected defection completes a busy week for the Sky Blues in the transfer market, with the club announcing the signings of Alexander Baumjohann and Ryan McGowan.

Celtic squash potential Rogic move

Australian midfielder Tom Rogic has reportedly attracted interest from Zenit, but the Celtic star is going nowhere according to the Hoops.

Celtic coach Neil Lennon has declared there's been no firm interest shown in the Socceroo, who has also been linked to a possible move to the Premier League.

Ocampos makes €15m Sevilla switch

Argentine winger Lucas Ocampos has become Sevilla’s latest signing of the summer after making a €15 million switch (£13m/$17m) from Marseille.

The 24-year old left-sided player has signed a five-year contract at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium after passing a medical on Wednesday afternoon.

Despite reported interest from Everton and Burnley, Ocampos becomes Sevilla’s sixth signing of the summer as they seek to improve on their sxith place finish in La Liga last season.

Spurs hold meeting with Real over Ceballos

Real Madrid and Tottenham have held a meeting over a possible transfer involving Dani Ceballos, reports AS.

Ceballos is a top priority for Spurs and Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has encouraged the midfielder to leave on loan to seek more playing time.

Madrid are not interested in a permanent sale at the current time, but Spurs believe they could get a permanent move done next summer, though the price tag would be upwards of €60 million (£54m/$68m).

Arsenal hold talks over increasing transfer budget

Arsenal are planning to appeal to owner Stan Kroenke for more money in order to land the club's transfer targets this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Lack of Champions League football have left the Gunners with £40 million ($50m) budget before player sales, while the club targeting the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Kieran Tierney.

But a £40m bid for Zaha has already been rejected, and the club need to spend more if they want to meet manager Unai Emery's transfer demands.

Juventus offer Dybala for Pogba

The Serie A champions look to counter Real Madrid's use of Gareth Bale in a swap deal

Juventus are looking to counter Real Madrid's interest in Paul Pogba by offering Manchester United Paulo Dybala, reports Marca.

Real have offered Gareth Bale for the France international, which has prompted the Serie A champions to offer up the Argentina international.

It's possible either Alex Sandro or Blaise Matuidi could be used in a Pogba deal as well, since the arrival of Maurizio Sarri has added uncertainty to both players' club future.

Brighton wants £40m for Dunk

Leicester City are eyeing Lewis Dunk as a replacement for Harry Maguire, but Brighton want £40 million ($50m) for the defender, according to the Sun.

The Foxes do not want to lose Maguire, but with both Manchester clubs lurking, the England international wants the chance to play at a higher level.

And Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers views both Dunk and Burnley's James Tarkowski as the possible replacements for Maguire.
