Real Madrid are planning an astonishing £500 million summer raid on the Premier League, according to the Daily Mail .

The Spanish club have their eyes on two main attacking targets, each of whom would draw a world-record £200m fee: Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Tottenham's Harry Kane. 

In addition, the Blancos would also shell out £100m for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.


Chelsea have made progress in talks over a transfer for Roma duo Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri, but will move on if a deal isn't reached by the end of the weekend, reports The Telegraph .

The Blues have agreed to a contract with Emerson but have yet to come to terms with Dzeko, whose demands are complicating the deal.

If Chelsea fail to land Dzeko, they'll move on to other striker targets like Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, Stoke City’s Peter Crouch and Burnley’s Ashley Barnes.

West Brom are demanding Arsenal pay at least £27m for centre-back Jonny Evans, according to The Sun . 

The Gunners have been in talks with the Baggies for two weeks over a move for the 30-year-old, with Arsene Wenger's side currently offering £25m for the Northern Ireland defender.

Tottenham are close to finalising a £21.9m deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain attacker Lucas Moura, reports RMC Sport .

The 25-year-old had been subject to interest from Manchester United and Arsenal earlier in the month, but Spurs are set to win the race for the PSG man's services.



With speculation about his future swirling, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to feature for Borussia Dortmund against Freiburg on Saturday.

Arsenal have been in talks with Dortmund over a transfer for the striker, but manager Arsene Wenger has claimed a deal is "not close".

Real Madrid have made contact with Tottenham over a summer move for manager Mauricio Pochettino, according to the Daily Mail.

With Zinedine Zidane under pressure, the Blancos have begun making plans for potential replacements. Pochettino is reportedly tempted by the idea of managing the La Liga giants.

Chelsea defender David Luiz won't seek a January exit from the club because he is convinced that manager Antonio Conte will leave in the summer, according to Daily Star.

Arsenal had been linked with the 30-year-old, who had a bust-up with Conte earlier in the season and has seen little playing time in recent months.

But the Brazilian has now decided to take his chances with winning his spot back next season under Conte's potential successor.

Everton and Arsenal are keen on Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, reports Football Italia.

The Croatia international is not part of manager Luciano Spalletti’s plans, and the Premier League sides could enter a bidding war for the 25-year-old's services.

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has agreed personal terms with Arsenal for a summer move, reports Diario Gol .

The France striker's transfer to London is still up in the air, however, with Madrid demanding €60m for the 30-year-old and Arsenal only prepared to pay €40m.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said it was unlikely the Reds will make further signings in January.

The club continue to be linked with a host of players after selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for €160m, but the German boss says the Reds are likely done spending in January.
