Welcome along to live coverage of all Wednesday’s transfer news, rumours, gossip and done deals as Arsenal complete the sensational loan move for Real Madrid and Norway midfielder Martin Odegaard, Liverpool look to clinch the signing of Derby County wonderkid Kaide Gordon, and Manchester United are linked with a bid for Christoph Baumgartner.

United are also in a race against time to get rid of many of their fringe players, and hope to offload Jesse Lingard to another Premier League club before the deadline.

Elsewhere Tottenham have made contact with Angel di Maria about a possible move to the north London club, according to L’Equipe, as the 32-year-old’s contract runs out this summer. First, PSG want to bring Spurs midfielder Dele Alli the other way on loan until the rest of the season.

Reports in Germany say the new Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel already has already identified the RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano as his top target as he seeks to make an impact at Stamford Bridge. Frank Lampard’s sacking has meanwhile had the knock-on effect of leaving West Ham more confident than ever of keeping hold of Declan Rice. Follow all the latest news below.
