13:50: Tottenham are considering an approach for PSV Eindhoven right-back Santiago Arias, reports claim.
According to AS Colombia, Spurs are interested in luring Arias to the Premier League as a replacement for Kyle Walker.
Manchester City are already on course to spend over £100million in the opening stages of the transfer window, and expect that total to rise with Walker on Pep Guardiola’s shortlist.
It’s believed Spurs will battle Premier League rivals Liverpool for his services.
13:40: Roma have rejected Liverpool’s £29.5m bid for former Chelsea outcast Mohamed Salah, according to reports in Italy.
Salah, 24, failed to seize his opportunity at Stamford Bridge but has reignited his career in Italy after notching up 15 goals in 31 Serie A appearances.
Despite seeing their initial offer rejected, it’s believed Jurgen Klopp’s side will return with an increased bid as they look to bolster their ranks ahead of next season's Champions League involvement.

12:45: Express Sport understand Manchester United have turned their attentions to Everton star Romelu Lukaku and Torino talisman Andrea Belotti after cooling their interest in Antoine Griezmann.
The Red Devils were hotly tipped to sign Griezmann but the severity of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s knee ligament damage means the club are now searching for an out-and-out striker.
The Belgian international’s agent Mino Raiola revealed yesterday that Lukaku would be allowed to leave if ‘certain clubs’ came knocking with a fee in the region of £100m.

Meanwhile Belotti, who netted 25 goals in 29 Serie A appearances this season, would represent a cheaper alternative.
But Torino still expect any prospective buyer to meet the £85m release clause in his contract.

The 22-year-old's impressive displays have seen the Ligue 1 outfit slap a £43m asking-price on his head, with no shortage of admirers.
Tolisso told French newspaper Le Progres: "If there are offers I will study them with my advisors and my parents, then I will go and tell the president that I want to leave.
"I've listened to his words, he's said there have been no new offers, so when we talk together I would like the situation to be clarified as soon as possible."
