Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says they have not yet completed the signing of Loic Remy and has no concerns the striker failed a medical at Liverpool earlier in the summer.
Arsenal and Chelsea are understood to be battling it out to sign Loic Remy, but which club do you think he is most likely to sign for?
One of the more surprising newspaper lines this morning is that Newcastle United playmaker Hatem Ben Arfa has been linked with a loan move to Birmingham City. The Daily Star Sunday says that Blues boss Lee Clark, a former Newcastle midfielder, is willing to take the French outcast to St Andrew’s. Lyon and Besiktas have also been credited with an interest in Ben Arfa, who has fallen out of favour at Newcastle under Alan Pardew.
Lewis Holtby is the subject of quite a bit of focus in today’s tabloids. The Sunday Mirror suggests that the midfielder is set to leave Tottenham for Hamburg in a £6.5million deal, but The People reports that Everton are expecting to complete a loan deal for the German.
With less than two days remaining in the transfer window there are plenty of interesting stories in the papers. Manchester United are expected to be busy and the Daily Star Sunday suggests it will be a whirlwind 48 hours involving up to 11 players. A deal is close to being finalised for Daley Blind, while Nigel de Jong could also be on his way in and United have also reportedly been in talks over Arturo Vidal and William Carvalho. Meanwhile, Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez, Anderson, Marouane Fellaini and Anders Lindegaard could all be on their way out, according to the papers.
