Transfer news LIVE! Arsenal want Zaha; Aubameyang to Chelsea latest

Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are all still trying to add to their squads ahead of the proverbial window slamming shut. With only a few days left, Thomas Tuchel is set to add Wesley Fofana to his list of options as the Leicester City star jets out to the USA for a medical, although there are said to be doubts in regards to their pursuits of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Anthony Gordon.

Another Chelsea target, namely Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, could yet be the centre of quite the tussle. While Tuchel is keen on the forward, reports suggest Arsenal may rival their interest late in the window, with Mikel Arteta eager to land a new winger.

At Spurs, meanwhile, the focus has been on outgoings of late. Still, Antonio Conte is eager for strength in depth, with Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi reportedly a late target as the Italian bids to add more options.

With so little time left in the window, the likes of Frenkie De Jong, Toni Kroos, Antony and Cristiano Ronaldo also feature heavily in the gossip columns, while West Ham close in on Lucas Paqueta. Follow all of the latest news, gossip and rumours below!
