Newcastle are closing in on long-term target Stanley Nsoki from Paris Saint-Germain, according to RMC, but the Magpies will have to match the Ligue 1 side’s £13.5 million valuation of the left-back.

Everton are still keen on signing Wilfried Zaha despite Crystal Palace turning down a proposed £50m offer at the weekend, the Daily Mirror says. The Toffees may have to get closer to £60million to prise the forward away from the Eagles.

Neil Etheridge could be making a return to the Premier League this season, with Aston Villa looking to bring in the Cardiff goalkeeper, according to Wales Online.

Harry Arter may be swapping the south coast for south west London, with Fulham looking to bring in the Bournemouth midfielder, reports the Daily Mirror. The Cherries may be willing to sell Arter as they make space for Phillip Billing from Huddersfield.
