Liverpool are leading the race ahead of Manchester United for 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham.

However, Liverpool are considering a move for Wolves and Portugal midfielder Matheus Nunes, 24, as an alternative to Bellingham. 

Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech, 29, was keen on leaving Stamford Bridge this summer with former club Ajax and AC Milan interested in the Morocco international. 

Chelsea made an informal approach for AC Milan and Portugal forward Rafael Leao, 23, during the summer transfer window, according to the club’s director Paolo Maldini.

Red Bull Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund has refused to rule out joining Chelsea in a similar role, and said the Blues showed an interest in the Austrian club’s Slovenia striker Benjamin Sesko, 19, during the summer. 

Newcastle United are interested in Shakhtar Donetsk and Ukraine winger Mykhaylo Mudryk, 21, who has also been linked with Arsenal and Brentford.

Shakhtar Donetsk have confirmed they rejected a bid of 30m euros from Everton for Mudryk.
