The Premier League transfer window is open. Click here to review all the latest transfers. And keep up to date with the latest gossip below.
TOP STORY: Prem trio battle for Bruun Larsen
Larsen, 20, made a breakthrough in the Bundesliga last season and has attracted interest from Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Liverpool could hold the advantage as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was in charge at Dortmund when Larsen signed for them from Lyngby in 2015.
The Denmark international is reportedly valued at around £15 million, but it is expected that Dortmund would want a higher fee to consider selling him.
23.00 BST: That will do it for the latest edition of our LIVE Transfer Talk blog. We hoped you enjoyed following along with us and remind you to check back shortly for the latest transfer rumours, reports and completed deals. Goodnight!
The two sides have been working on a deal for weeks and the player is scheduled to be in London this week to take a medical.
If all goes well -- and personal terms are agreed upon -- Ndombele, 22, would become the club's record transfer, smashing the £42 million Spurs paid Ajax for Davinson Sanchez in 2017.
Ndombele cost Lyon just £8 million when he joined two years ago from Amiens.
22.18 BST: "Another one" (DJ Khaled voice).
Celta Vigo have announced they have signed Denis Suarez from Barcelona.
Sources tell ESPN FC that Vigo will pay Barca €12.9 million plus €3.1m in potential add ons for the midfielder. Suarez, who joined Barca in 2016, played a year in the youth ranks at Vigo and played the second half of last season on loan at Arsenal.
21.59 BST: And here's a big one...
Roma have announced that veteran centre-back Kostas Manolas has completed his move to Napoli.

The Greek defender departs Rome after five seasons and over 200 appearances and if Kalidou Koulibaly stays -- a big if -- would form one of the best centre-back pairings in the world.
Napoli have paid €36 million for the Greek, according to Goal, but have yet to confirm the signing via Twitter or their website.
21.43 BST: Diogo Dalot has only been at Man United for a year but his days at Old Trafford cold be numbered.
With Man United having just signed right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka for nearly £50 million, the question becomes what happens to Dalot? The 20-year-old, who signed last June from Porto for £19m, looks to be the odd man out with Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw now penciled in as United's starting full-backs.
The London Evening Standard is speculating that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could now sell the Portuguese right-back, with there likely to be considerable interest in the youngster. One thing is for sure, playing time for Dalot next season will likely prove tough if he stays at Old Trafford...
21.21 BST: Jefferson Montero, remember him?
The Swansea City winger spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom and could be on the move again. The Sun suggests that Montero could land at Birmingham City, as new coach Pep Clotet worked with the Ecuadorian at Swansea under Garry Monk.
Now 29, Montero's once very exciting career has hit the skids in recent years. Could a reunion with a former coach and advocate in Clotet be just what the doctor ordered?
20.51 BST: Relegated Fulham have reportedly entered the chase for Chelsea midfielder/centre-back Trevor Chalobah.
Football Insider claims that the London club are set to rival West Brom for the loan rights to the 19-year-old midfielder. The England Under-20 international impressed last season at Ipswich Town on loan, making 36 starts.
Chalobah will be sent on loan again this season, and both Championship sides view him as a player that can play a key role in a promotion campaign.
20.27 BST: Marco Asensio to Liverpool?
Mane scored 26 goals last season for Liverpool, while Asensio scored six to go along with seven assists. This seems like a deal that would only happen if Mane asked to be moved.
19.58 BST: Newly-promoted Norwich City have already signed one former wonder kid in Patrick Roberts and could be set to move for a second.
The Sun claims that the Canaries are monitoring the situation of Celta Vigo winger Emre Mor, a 21-year-old Turkish international, who not too long ago was considered one of the brightest young talents in Europe.
Mor, who was snapped up by Borussia Dortmund in 2016 for £9 million, has fallen out with coaches at Dortmund and now Celta Vigo due to his attitude but could be worth a punt for a newly-promoted side. Mor played only 12 times last season with Vigo and there are even reports that the club could let him go for free.
Fellow newly-promoted side Sheffield United have been another club linked with the talented but frustrating winger.
19.28 BST: Aston Villa are being linked with players left, right and centre at the moment, with the Birmingham Mail saying Southampton striker Charlie Austin, also interesting Sheffield United, is the latest.
18.17 BST: Adrien Rabiot has arrived in Italy as his move to Juventus from PSG draws closer, with reports saying he will undergo a medical on Monday and is poised to sign a four-year deal.
17.42 BST: Further Southampton involvement now, with Sky Sports saying Saints striker Sam Gallagher could be on his way to Blackburn, for whom he has previously played on loan.
16.49 BST: And staying with Villa for a moment, Sky Sports reports that Southampton defender Matt Targett will wrap up an £11 million move to Villa Park on Monday.
15.59 BST: Reports suggest that newly-promoted Aston Villa are closing in on a move for Bristol City defender Adam Webster, who would be likely to cost them around £25 million.
15.01 BST: Leicester have become the latest of a number of names said to be interested in Genk winger Mbwana Samatta, who has also attracted the attention of Watford and Burnley, the Leicester Mercury reports.
Rashford is close to signing a new five-year deal, with the terms of the agreement set to reflect his importance at Old Trafford.
Sources have told ESPN FC that Rashford's new wage will not match Alexis Sanchez's £391,000-a-week deal but will see him earn around £200,000 a week.
13.35 BST: Following reports in France that Everton were in talks to sign former Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore from French club Lyon, the Liverpool Echo says those reports are "highly speculative" and Traore is unlikely to be a player Everton will target.
12.50 BST: Tottenham are set to break their self-imposed transfer ban by signing Jack Clarke from Leeds and Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele this week.
And Mauricio Pochettino has given some insight into how things work at Spurs by revealing he does not enjoy the same freedom to make transfer decisions as Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola.
"At Manchester City and Liverpool, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are free to decide which players they want and which ones they do not," he said. "However, in other teams such as Tottenham, Chelsea or Arsenal the make-up of the squad isn't in the hands of the coaches. Who decides, in our case, is the president.
"It is imperative that this year we strengthen the team. We saved a lot of money in almost two years without signing, and that should allow us to strengthen ourselves well."
12.05 BST: Reports in Italy claim Juventus have agreed to sign Adrien Rabiot on a free transfer when his Paris Saint-Germain contract expires on Monday.
The 20-year-old, set to sign a five-year contract with Juve, will reportedly be loaned out so he can play regularly.
It'll hurt them financially and goes against their football philosophy, but Graham Hunter argues that signing both could bring Barca the Treble.
10.15 BST: Manchester United have been linked to some unlikely names this summer, with Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn the latest.
Villa are reported to value the 24-year-old at £50m as United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add to his squad ahead of a season in which he will want to improve on last term's sixth-placed finish.
09.45 BST: Crystal Palace are going to earn a reputation as the shrewdest operators in the Premier League if a report in the Mail on Sunday is true.
It claims Arsenal will have to cough up £100m to prise Wilfried Zaha from Palace but that price tag may be as much an effort to ensure they don't lose another key player after selling Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United for £50m as anything else.
It seems the 27-year-old Denmark midfielder won't stay beyond summer 2020 when his deal expires, so Levy is keen to get what he can now.
PAPER TALK (by Stephen Wright):
Chelsea prematurely announce Kovacic signing
A transfer ban means Chelsea cannot sign new players until after the January 2020 window but, as Kovacic was on loan from Real Madrid last season, they wouldn't be breaking any rules to sign him permanently.
On the club's official app, The Fifth Stand, a Q&A article began: "After securing a permanent switch to Stamford Bridge following a successful loan spell at Chelsea from Real Madrid, we caught up with Mateo Kovacic to find out what some of his first footballing memories are."
Rashford's going nowhere
The long-term contract would run until 2023, with the option to include an extra year, and the news comes after speculation that 21-year-old Rashford had been on the radars of clubs including Barcelona.
United fly to Australia on July 8 for the start of their preseason tour, and are expected to announce the extension before then.
Neymar can leave PSG on one condition
Not only would the Ligue 1 side want £116m, but they would also demanding two players.
- Manchester City target Joao Cancelo is intent on staying at Juventus, despite previously saying he was ready to leave, according to CalcioMercato.
City had offered Danilo in exchange for the right-back, but reports suggest Juventus no longer think they would be better off without Cancelo.
