Transfer news & rumours LIVE: Liverpool could reignite interest in Kylian Mbappe as Real Madrid waver on pursuing deal

Moyes currently has no extension offer from West Ham

David Moyes is anticipated to leave West Ham manager in the upcoming summer, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Moyes' current contract with the Hammers extends until the conclusion of the season, with no indications of a contract extension offer at the London Stadium.

Surviving potential replacement earlier in the summer, Moyes secured West Ham's place in the Premier League and clinched the Europa Conference League, marking the club's first European trophy win since 1965.

Despite these achievements, recent mixed performance results have reignited calls from frustrated supporters for a managerial change. Notably, West Ham is positioned above Chelsea and sit just nine points away from the top four.

Liverpool continue to hold interest in Mbappe

Real Madrid have to shell out a substantial signing bonus of around €100 million to secure Kylian Mbappe from PSG.

According to AS, the French attacker supposedly has 'more important offers' on the table including one from Liverpool as they have reactivated their interest in the 2018 World Cup winner.

This strategic move could be an attempt to exert pressure on Real Madrid to intensify their efforts to sign the coveted French player as  L'Equipe stated that Mbappe's future will likely to remain unresolved until the first few months of 2024.

Grimaldo open to Real Madrid move

Bayer Leverkusen full-back Alex Grimaldo has expressed his desire to a potential move to Real Madrid, despite having spent eight years with Barcelona, their Clasico rivals.

"Real Madrid are one of the world's best teams, maybe the best, and any player would want to join them," Grimaldo told an interview with OK Diario.

"I would like to play in Spain in the future, because I have always wanted to play there and it would be an opportunity for me to play at home.

"Right now, I am happy at Bayer Leverkusen. I have been here for three months and it is going great, we will see what happens in the future."

Brighton set mighty price tag for Ferguson

Brighton has placed a formidable price tag on striker Evan Ferguson, signalling their reluctance to part ways with the talented player. Following Ferguson's recent commitment to the Seagulls until the summer of 2029, the new contract reportedly does not include a release clause, reinforcing Brighton's firm stance.

According to TalkSPORT, the club's owner, Tony Bloom, known for his negotiating prowess, values Ferguson even higher than Moises Caicedo, who commanded a British record fee of £115m in his transfer to Chelsea. Bloom's belief in Ferguson's increased market worth sets the benchmark for potential suitors.

Tottenham sees Ferguson as a potential long-term successor to Harry Kane, adding to the list of admirers that includes Manchester United and Chelsea.

Arsenal & Newcastle-target Neves not up for sale

Al-Hilal is not interested in selling midfielder Rúben Neves, despite the growing interest from Premier League clubs, according to Ekrem Konur.

Newcastle United's manager, Eddie Howe, is actively seeking to strengthen his midfield depth, especially after injuries have impacted the team's performance in the pursuit of a top-four spot in the Premier League. Arsenal has also joined the race to find cover for an injured Thomas Partey.

Arsenal join Newcastle in a race to sign Neves

Newcastle have been considering a move for Al Hilal midfielder Ruben Neves as a replacement for the banned Sandro Tonali. However, according to  TalkSPORT, Arsenal are now reportedly entering the competition for Neves.

The 25-year-old midfielder, who made a move from Wolves to Saudi Arabia for around £60 million in the summer, is sought after by both clubs.

Newcastle's interest in Neves is driven by the need for cover due to Sandro Tonali's ban. The club is exploring the possibility of utilizing its relationship with the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) to secure Neves on loan. However, there's a potential obstacle as the Premier League may block clubs from loaning players within their own ownership group.

Arsenal, seeking a replacement for the injured Thomas Partey, could take advantage of this situation and compete with Newcastle for the services of Ruben Neves.

Premier League club want to sign Ferran Torres

Ferran Torres could be on his way back to the Premier League as Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing him, according to Fichajes.

Barcelona could be tempted to sell the player next season if they get the right price as they are no happy Spaniard's performance at Camp Nou.

Newcastle will go after Kalvin Phillips in January

Northern Echo reports that Newcastle United are ready to place a bid to sign Manchester City outcast Kalvin Phillips on loan in January.

The report claims that the Magpies will look for a temporary move for the player but if he performs well they might consider making the transfer permanent next season.
