Transfer News: Evanilson, Wijnaldum, Raphinha, De Jong
By Luke Delaney

Premier League clubs have been extremely busy in the transfer window already with some massive names already announced to be playing in the league ahead of the 2022/23 season. With Erling Haaland snapped up by Manchester City and Liverpool capturing the signing of Darwin Nunez, there's no doubt going to be an even more competetive season to look forward to. Here's transfer news and rumours below.

Liverpool transfer news

Jurgen Klopp has already completed three signings ahead of next season. Fabio Carvalho has joined Liverpool from Fulham, while the highly rated Darwin Nunez has also signed for the club in a deal that could be worth up to €100 million with add ons. The signing Scottish Premiership Young Player of the Year, Calvin Ramsay has also been confirmed but despite claims that Liverpool's business for this window is done, they are still being linked with some players.

The Irish Daily Star are reporting that Liverpool are interested in bringing Gini Wijnaldum back to the club on a loan deal. The Dutch midfielder left Liverpool last summer for PSG but it's safe to say that things haven't worked out for Wijnaldum in the French capital and was named Flop of the Season by Ligue 1 fans.

Cadena Ser are reporting that Jude Bellingham is also on Liverpool's radar but they will face competition from Real Madrid if they're to capture the signature of the 18-year-old.

Manchester United transfer news

With Erik Ten Hag's arrival as new Man United manager, many supporters would have hoped for a busier start to the transfer window at Old Trafford. Manchester United have been heavily linked with Barcelona's Frenkie De Jong, a player who made his Ajax debut under Ten Hag.

United had an opening bid of around €60 million turned down last week with Barca wanting €85 million for the Dutch midfielder.

Another player that Ten Hag is being linked with bringing to the club is Brazillian striker Evanilson with rumours that Porto rejected a €60 million bid from Manchester United.

The 22-year-old scored 14 goals in the Premeira Liga last season and seems to be United's number one target for the striker position.

Highly rated Ajax defender Jurien Timber has also been a name on the lips of many supporters but  there's now reports that Timber is reluctant to move and his planning on staying in Amsterdam for another season.

Christian Eriksen impressed during the second half of the season after joining Brentford on a short term deal and Manchester United seem to be interested in bringing the playmaker to the club.

Eriksen is a free agent since his deal with Thomas Frank's side ran out and The Athletic are reporting that United have made a proposal to Eriksen about joining the club.

Arsenal transfer news

After narrowly missing out on the Top 4 to rivals Tottenham last season, Mikel Arteta seems to be keen to add fire power to his young side. With Alexandre Laccazette's exit from the club confirmed, transfer news around Arsenal will be exciting fans ahead of the coming season.

One man who has been heavily linked with the club since the start of the season is Gabriel Jesus. Manchester City have reportedly set an asking price of £50 million for the striker but it looks like Arsenal will face comptition from their North London rivals Spurs for Jesus.

The Gunners are also interested in bringing Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez to the club. The Argentinian defender is reportedly interested and keen to work under Mikel Arteta and he would certainly seem a good fit for Arsenal.

Leeds winger Raphinha has been linked with a move away from the club since the start of the transfer window and Fabrizio Romano has reported that Arsenal have been in negotiations with Leeds despite the Brazillian already agreeing personal terms with Barcelona.

Spurs transfer news

Antonio Conte has already made three signings ahead of the new season with Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma joining the club. Fraser Forster has also been signed as a back up keeper on a free transfer from Southampton. Despite this, Spurs have still been linked with a number of players. Here's all the transfer news about Tottenham.

Udinese left back Destiny Udogie is one of those players that Conte wants to bring to the club according to Sky Italy but they will face competition from Juventus for the highly rated full back.

Another young full back that's been linked with Spurs is Middlesborough's Djed Spence. The England U21 international had a break through season on loan at Nottingham Forest last year and it's believed that Tottenham are front runners to sign him.

Tottenham are one of a number of clubs interested in Raphinha, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona also chasing the Leeds' winger.

Italian football expert and writer for the Guardian, Nicky Bandini has said that Lautaro Martinez is another player that Conte is eager to bring to the club, but that deal depends on whether Inter can bring Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku to the San Siro.

It's believed that Tottenham are also keen on bringing another centre back in this window with Villareal's Pau Torres and Inter Milan's Alessandro Bastoni at the top of Conte's wishlist.
