Tottenham are on the verge of agreeing a deal to buy Richarlison from Everton. The striker is a key target for Antonio Conte, who wants to add more depth to his attack, and negotiations over the transfer are close to being finalised.

Everton have been holding out for about £50m and have previously been cool on Spurs’s attempts to include players such as the Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn in a swap deal. Bergwijn is a target for Ajax.

The signing would be a boost for Conte. Richarlison, who played a major role in helping Everton stay up, wants to join Spurs and is keen to play in the Champions League. He has also been a target for Chelsea, though they have not made a move for him.

Tottenham are also close to a deal to bring the defender Clément Lenglet on loan from Barcelona for the season. The 27-year-old, who has 15 France caps, started seven La Liga matches in the 2021-22 campaign.

West Ham are making progress in talks with Villarreal over a deal to sign Arnaut Danjuma. A fee is yet to be agreed or personal terms discussed but confidence is growing that West Ham will sign the Netherlands winger for a fee of about €40m (£34.5m) plus add-ons.

David Moyes wants additions in attack and is interested in signing a versatile forward. Danjuma can play on the left or through the middle.
