The summer transfer window is here and clubs are getting their business done early.

Manchester United have money to spend - and have already signed Victor Lindelof for £35m - but may be forced to shell out as much as £70m for both Alvaro Morata, while Andrea Belotti looks like he will stay at Torinio.

Chelsea's main man, Diego Costa, looks like he will be on his way after being told he is surplus to requirements by manager Antonio Conte.

Manchester City already have two players with Monaco's Bernardo Silva and Benfica goalkeeper Ederson in through the door, while Arsenal have snapped up Schalke's Sead Kolasinac on a free.

Liverpool are closing in on a deal for Mohamed Salah as they continue to negotiate with Roma over a fee but won't be adding Virgil van Dijk after being forced to apologise to Southampton for an illegal approach.

The Italian media are this morning reporting that Liverpool have completed a deal for Mohamad Salah, who will now fly to England to have a medical at the club.

Following reports in England that Liverpool were in the process of agreeing a £45m deal with Roma for the former Chelsea man, Calciomercato are reporting that the deal has been agreed, with Salah having already agreed personal terms.

The 25-year-old will now travel to Liverpool for a medical, ahead of an official club announcement.

The £45m fee will see Salah become the club’s record signing, ahead of Christian Benteke (£40m) and Sadio Mane (£35m).
