Goal takes a look at the biggest transfer stories from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond ahead of the opening of the summer window
CHELSEA CLOSE IN ON VAN DIJK
Chelsea are closing in on Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk, according to Sky Italia, in a deal worth around £60 million to the South Coast club.
The 25-year-old previously looked set to join Liverpool before the Reds were forced to pull out of the deal, leaving the door open for Antonio Conte to make his move.
Manchester City are also thought to be in the chase, though a big-money deal taking the Netherlands international to Stamford Bridge is making progress.
ARSENAL STILL KEEN ON €135M MBAPPE
Arsene Wenger will oversee a flurry of outgoings at Arsenal this summer which will allow him to make a sensational move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, says the Telegraph.
It was thought that the teenage striker had chosen Real Madrid as his next club having spoken with Zinedine Zidane, while Goal understands that Paris Saint-Germain have made an offer of around €135 million.
Arsenal, however, are refusing to give up the fight and are said to be willing to match the bid from Ligue 1 giants PSG.
FABINHO TO COST AT LEAST €45M
Monaco midfielder Fabinho will draw a transfer fee of at least €45 million, according to Calcio Mercato.
Juventus, Manchester United, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing the 23-year-old Brazilian.
ZIDANE SPEAKS TO MBAPPE
Zinedine Zidane has already spoken to Kylian Mbappe in an attempt to convince him to join Real Madrid, according to L'Equipe.
Goal understands Paris Saint-Germain have made an offer of over €135 million for the Monaco sensation, but Madrid remain in the battle to sign him and sent their coach and president Florentino Perez to lure him.
The player was told he will be a key player as Madrid are willing to let one of their star players go, while his fears over a lack of playing time at Madrid were addressed.
MAN UTD KEEN ON ALBA
Manchester United are targeting a move for Barcelona defender Jordi Alba, according to ESPN.
Jose Mourinho is looking for a new left-back this summer, but a move for Spain international Alba could prove difficult with the player settled at Camp Nou.
SPURS INTERESTED IN SUSO
Tottenham are interested in signing AC Milan midfielder Suso, according to Marca.
Milan are yet to tie down the former Liverpool youngster to a new contract at San Siro, and Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bring him to north London as his side prepare for another season in the Champions League.
RONALDO HAS PSG BARGAINING CHIP
Cristiano Ronaldo will use a 'money no object' offer from Paris Saint-Germain as a bargaining chip in talks with Real Madrid, reports Marca.
The Portuguese has expressed a desire to move on this summer, but Madrid president Florentino Perez is eager to speak with his star forward before any any future call is made.
DE BOER OFFERED PALACE JOB
Frank de Boer has been offered the chance to replace Sam Allardyce as Crystal Palace manager, the Guardian reports.
De Boer was previously in charge with Ajax and had an unsuccessful spell with Inter at the start of last season.
Mauricio Pellegrino was an impressive candidate but is set to replace Claude Puel at Southampton, while ex-Saint-Etienne coach Christophe Galtier was also in the running.
ARSENAL TARGET BUTLAND
Arsenal have made Stoke City's Jack Butland their No.1 goalkeeping target to replace Petr Cech, according to Bleacher Report.
After missing out on Jordan Pickford to Everton, the Gunners have now switched their attention to England international Butland as they prepare for life after Cech.
The feeling at the Emirates Stadium is that the 2017-18 campaign will be Cech's last at the club, and they will continue to monitor Butland if he cannot be signed this summer.
MAN UTD BID FOR GOMES REJECTED
Manchester United have had a bid of £31 million for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes rejected, according to Catalunya Radio via The Sun.
United had been holding talks with the Portugal international's agent, Jorge Mendes, but have failed to agree a fee with the Camp Nou outfit.
LIVERPOOL REJECT MORENO BID
Liverpool have rejected a bid of around £11 million from Napoli for defender Alberto Moreno, according to The Times.
Though the Reds are willing to offload the full-back this summer, they are holding out for a fee of £15m.
DONNARUMMA & MBAPPE THIS SUMMER OR NEXT FOR MADRID
Gianluigi Donnarumma and Kylian Mbappe are both being tracked by Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who is prepared to wait until next summer to move for the young stars, according to Marca.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper is out of contract with AC Milan in 2018 and can move under a Bosman deal if he does not renew at San Siro. However, Zidane could make a €30 million bid in the coming weeks to try to tempt the Italy star to the Spanish capital.
Meanwhile, Mbappe, also 18, has two years left to run on his Monaco deal, and should the Ligue 1 champions refuse to sell him this summer, Real are optimistic they will be able to get him next year.

CHELSEA TO SIGN £35M BAKAYOKO
Chelsea are close to signing Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco for £35 million, The Daily Mail claims.
The 22-year-old midfielder was a key player in Monaco's Ligue 1 winning season, earning admiration from Antonio Conte who made him a top target. The move could lead to Nemanja Matic departing, with the 28-year-old interested in a move to Manchester United.
