The summer transfer window is now open in Europe, and there's plenty of gossip swirling around. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings, goings and, of course, done deals!
TOP STORY: Vlahovic's uncertain future
With the 23-year-old's future seemingly uncertain, there are plenty of suitors, but the Serbia international isn't a priority for any of those clubs.
Juventus are open to letting the former Fiorentina frontman leave, especially as they haven't been completely convinced by his performances so far, but it would take at least €90 million for a deal to happen.
So, while there has been plenty of interest, it is unclear where any concrete offer will materialise.
22.09 BST: Arsenal are set to confirm a new long-term deal with Reiss Nelson, reports Fabrizio Romano. The 23-year-old winger has reportedly turned down advances from clubs from Italy, France and England to sign a four-year contract with the Gunners.
The former England U21 international, who has been at the club since he was just nine years old, scored three goals and provided two assists in 11 Premier League appearances last season, as he holds out for more playing time under Mikel Arteta next season.
The 28-year-old midfielder is available on a free transfer after his contract with Southampton expired at the end of last month, following five years at Saint Mary's Stadium. However, the LaLiga side might face some competition for the Norway international: his former club, Celtic -- where he played on loan for two seasons, scoring 14 goals in 44 appearances -- are also interested in a move.
21.08 BST: Benfica have officially announced the return of Ángel Di María on a one-year contract.
The 35-year-old forward joins the Portuguese club after a verbal agreement was reached two weeks ago, marking his return to the Estádio da Luz since departing 13 years ago to join Real Madrid. The Argentina international became a free agent this summer after spending just one season at Juventus, and following a seven-season stint with Paris Saint-Germain.
The 26-year-old centre-back is set to join the Bundesliga champions in a £43m deal following his debut season in Italy. The South Korea international missed only three Serie A games as Napoli won their first Scudetto in over 30 years.
The Blues have reportedly received indications that the 21-year-old would be willing to join Stamford Bridge this summer if an agreement could be reached between the two clubs. The west London outfit attempted to sign him back in January, but the Ecuador international chose to renew his deal with the Seagulls instead and make 37 appearances as Roberto De Zerbi's side went on to finish a club-highest sixth in the Premier League.
It's hard to envision just how Caicedo would fit into this team yet given the amount of incoming and outgoing players this summer, but his form in the Premier League was established last season and he'd certainly fit in terms of age profile with the squad Chelsea are trying to build.
According to Marca and other outlets in Spain, the MLS side have been sounding out the 39-year-old former Barcelona and Spain star for a spot in their squad, despite the fact that he's been playing in Japan for Vissel Kobe since 2018. Iniesta had announced earlier this year that he would be leaving the J.League in the summer, which brings us to the ongoing links to Miami.
David Beckham, a co-owner of the MLS side, is keen to form a title-contending team out of stars that focuses around Messi, and bringing in a cultured midfielder like Iniesta, who played 488 games in the same Barca XI as the Argentina star, is being discussed. (Our only question is: how could they make the money make sense?)
The Premier League side have reportedly submitted a verbal proposal for the 22-year-old defender, who is out of contract with Wolfsburg in 2027. The Netherlands U21 international, who made 33 appearances in the Bundesliga last season, has reportedly agreed personal terms as the two clubs continue to negotiate his move to north London, but a move is by no means a foregone conclusion.
Van de Ven would be a good add for a Tottenham side that conceded 63 goals in the Premier League last season, offering depth and physicality around the box. The fact that he is a left-footed centre-back would also be an asset in terms of how new manager Ange Postecoglou will want his side to play.
18.33 BST: Manchester United have made an opening offer for Andre Onana, The Athletic reports. The Red Devils proposed up to €45m for the 27-year-old goalkeeper, but with Internazionale reportedly looking for closer to €60m, the two clubs are expected to negotiate further to reach a compromise over a transfer for the Cameroon international.
Onana is reportedly eager to reunite with Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford following their time together at Ajax, with current No.1 David de Gea expected to depart the club this summer.
The 26-year-old defender has rejected both Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Napoli to join the Eagles on a season-long loan. It is reported that Manchester United were also interested in the Germany international, who made 77 appearances for the Peacocks since arriving from SC Freiburg in the summer of 2020.
17:26 BST: Atletico Madrid have officially announced the arrival of Caglar Soyuncu on a four-year deal. The 27-year-old centre-back has left Leicester City on a free transfer after his contract ended on June 30.
The Turkey international, who made 132 appearances in five years for the Foxes, was side-lined by former manager Brendan Rodgers for the majority of the season, only making two league appearances before being reinstated by interim boss Dean Smith as the club were relegated from the Premier League.
16:51 BST: Is there another Liverpool player set to head to Saudi Arabia after Roberto Firmino's free agent move there? Reports in England suggest that the club is willing to listen to offers for mercurial midfielder Thiago Alcantara, as the Spain international heads into the final year of his contract at Anfield.
Thiago, 32, has struggled with injuries since arriving from Bayern Munich in 2020 -- in fact, the 2022-23 season was his lowest league minutes for the Reds since joining, with just 14 starts in 18 appearances -- but remains an influential playmaker in midfield. The position has been an issue for Liverpool in recent seasons, but summer moves for Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai add depth and quality in the middle of the park, which could make Thiago feel somewhat surplus to the next iteration at Anfield.
Liverpool are also reportedly interested in Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia, which could further reduce the need for keeping Thiago until the expiration of his contract in June, 2024.
Internazionale are in negotiations to part ways with the 29-year-old left-back this summer, either permanently or on loan with an obligation to buy. The Germany international, who is out of contract with the Nerazzurri in 2026, made 32 Serie A appearances this season.
15.45, BST: AC Milan have submitted a new bid worth over €20m ($21.8m) for Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic, sources have told ESPN.
ESPN reported last week that Pulisic had agreed personal terms in principle with Milan, who can offer the United States star the chance to remain playing Champions League football next season.
Sources have told ESPN that Milan are confident of striking a deal with Chelsea over the transfer fee, with the Italian club believing the savings Chelsea would make on Pulisic's wages -- about €15m per year -- are enough to get a deal with their latest offer over the line.
15.10 BST: United States midfielder Weston McKennie is in talks with Borussia Dortmund over a move during the summer transfer window, a source confirmed to ESPN's Constantin Eckner.
McKennie, 24, is under contract at Juventus until 2025 after recently returning from a six-month loan stint at Leeds United, who were relegated from the Premier League last season.
Juventus are looking to offload players and revamp their squad, with the 36-time Scudetto winners coming off a disappointing 2022-23 campaign, and Dortmund see a chance to make an addition to their midfield.
14.37 BST: Manchester United have indicated to Inter Milan that they are ready to offer £40m for goalkeeper Andre Onana, sources told ESPN's Rob Dawson.
Talks with Onana's representatives, which started last week, have been productive and United are ready to test Inter's resolve with a package of around £39m plus add-ons.
Sources told ESPN that Inter's valuation is more than £50m but there is hope that a compromise can be reached.
14.05 BST: The ESPN FC crew debate how much of an improvement Mason Mount makes to Manchester United's midfield after he completed his move from Chelsea.
13.31 BST: Manchester City are prepared to offer Kyle Walker a new two-year contract to keep him at the club, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The treble winners are eager to ward off interest from Bayern Munich in the England international.
Walker, 33, was under pressure for his place in the team in the second half of last season, but fought his way back in to become a key player for Pep Guardiola once again.
The defender has only one year left on his deal, but City are ready to offer him an extra year earlier than usual to make sure he rejects the chance to play in the Bundesliga.
12.58 BST: AC Milan have made an offer to Villarreal to sign Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze on a permanent transfer, according to Sky Sport. The Rossoneri have agreed personal terms with Chukwueze but have yet to get the green light from Villarreal.
Chukwueze, 24, has not signed a contract extension with Villarreal, with his deal ending in June 2024. A youth product of Villarreal, Chukwueze is also a target of Premier League clubs. The winger has an €80m release clause.
12.30 BST: Turkey international Arda Guler is to snub a move to Barcelona in favour of signing for arch-rivals Real Madrid.
Barca were thought to be in pole position to sign the 18-year-old, but Real Madrid have now placed a transfer offer of €20m, which is set to be accepted by Fenerbahce.
Guler, who has four caps for the senior national team, is one of the hottest prospects in Turkish football and was also being tracked by Arsenal and Sevilla.
Dario AS reports that the attacking midfielder could complete a move to Los Blancos by the end of the week.
12.01 BST: Manuel Ugarte has travelled to the French capital to complete his transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, according to Record.
Ugarte said goodbye to his Sporting CP teammates on Tuesday at the club's training facilities before taking a flight to Paris. The 22-year-old snubbed a move to Chelsea in order to join PSG after both clubs were prepared to trigger the midfielder's €60m release clause.
Ugarte, who played for Uruguay at the 2022 World Cup, will sign a five-year contract.
11.29 BST: Tijjani Reijnders has rejected overtures from Barcelona in favour of signing for AC Milan, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The 24-year-old is set to move to the San Siro from AZ Alkmaar, though there is still disagreement over the transfer fee. Milan are said to have offered €16m, with the Dutch club asking for €25m -- though middle ground is likely to be found.
The report says that Barca had made a late move to sign the midfielder, but he has already decided he wants to play in Serie A and declined the offer of talks.
11.00 BST: Manchester United have completed the signing of midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea, the club announced on Wednesday.
ESPN reported last week the two clubs had agreed a deal worth £55 million ($69.5m) with another £5m ($6.3m) in add-ons.
Sources told ESPN the bonuses due to Chelsea are "strongly dependent" on appearances as well as Mount's success at Old Trafford.

10.39 BST: Sport Bild reports that Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel met with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane last month as the Bundesliga champions look to seal a deal.
Kane is Bayern's No. 1 transfer target this summer, and they hope to agree a deal with Spurs as the England captain is now in the final year of his contract.
The report says that Tuchel travelled to London with sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and met Kane at the striker's home.
Bayern had an offer of €70m plus bonuses rejected last month, with Spurs said to be looking for €116m (£100m).
10.10 BST: Benfica are set to announce the return of Angel Di Maria to the club, Abola reports.
A 2022 World Cup winner with Argentina, the 35-year-old, will rejoin the Portuguese outfit as a free agent 13 years after leaving the club. He is expected to sign a one-year contract.
Di Maria left Juventus at the end of last month after just one season in Turin, where he made 40 appearances across all competitions. The veteran winger also considered joining Argentina teammate Lionel Messi at Inter Miami CF but his priority was to remain in Europe. Di Maria spent three seasons at Benfica before joining Real Madrid in a €33m transfer in July 2010.
09.49 BST: Barcelona announced the signing of defender Inigo Martinez as a free agent on Wednesday following his departure from Athletic Club.

09.11 BST: Barcelona have reached an agreement to sign Athletico-PR's Vitor Roque for around €40m ($43.6m) but it remains unclear when the Brazilian will be able to join the club, sources have confirmed to ESPN.
ESPN revealed in June that Barca were optimistic of landing Roque as they look for a backup and heir to veteran striker Robert Lewandowski, who will turn 35 in August.
Roque, 18, ticked all the boxes and following negotiations led by new sporting director Deco, Barca have struck a deal for the Brazil international.
However, with Barca in excess of their LaLiga-imposed spending limit and only able to spend 50% of anything they save or raise on registering new players, Roque will either arriving in January, next summer or in the current transfer window.
08.30 BST: Roberto Firmino has joined Saudi Arabian club Al Ahli as a free agent after his contract at Liverpool expired at the end of last season, it was announced late on Tuesday.
The forward, 31, has agreed a three-year deal with the Saudi team and joins former Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy at the Jeddah-based club.
- AC Milan are considering using some of the funds earned from Sandro Tonali's departure to Newcastle United on a move for Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong, according to the Daily Mail. It would put them in direct competition with Internazionale for the 22-year-old, while Arsenal and Manchester United are also interested.
- Inter have decided they will approach Chelsea in an effort to bring back Romelu Lukaku once they have closed the deal for Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi, according to Fabrizio Romano. Negotiations will restart in the coming days about another loan for the striker, including an obligation to make the deal permanent.
- Newcastle United are interested in Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi as manager Eddie Howe looks for strength in depth ahead of the Magpies' Champions League campaign, reports Football Insider. Crystal Palace want £60m for the 22-year-old, with that valuation taking his breakthrough into the England national team into account.
- Borussia Monchengladbach winger Jonas Hofmann will join Leverkusen after a clause in the region of €10m was triggered, says Kicker. The clause was negotiated a year ago when the 31-year-old signed a new contract. Brest's Franck Honorat is among the players Gladbach are considering as they look for a replacement.
- Southampton full-back Tino Livramento would rather join Newcastle than re-sign for Chelsea this summer, reports the Daily Mail. The 20-year-old is expected to leave the Saints after their relegation, and Chelsea have a clause that would allow them to take him back for £40m, while Newcastle have made an offer worth over £20m.
