Today, we have entered the third weekend of the Premier League summer transfer window.

It has been a quiet day with no player arrivals, but Sheffield United appear close to recruiting a new goalkeeper in the form of Aaron Ramsdale.

The Blades have agreed on a fee with Bournemouth for the 22-year-old (Daily Echo). The shot-stopper appears set to rejoin the club after three-and-a-half years.

Let’s have a look at the top transfer stories at the moment.

Top Transfer Rumours:

Arsenal have received a boost in their bid to swap Lucas Torreira with AS Roma’s Amadou Diawara. Torreira is keen on a return to the Serie A and he has the accepted the idea of joining the Giallorossi (Il Romanista).

Elsewhere, Chelsea seem on the cusp of signing a new left-back. They have been regularly linked with Ben Chilwell in recent months and it appears that they have reached a breakthrough in the negotiations with Leicester City (The Times).
