Liverpool are to bid £7.5m for Clint Dempsey and want to complete his signing from Fulham before leaving for a pre-season trip to the United States next week, according to the Daily Mirror.
It is suggested that the deal could be done as early as Wednesday and that Fulham are open to the idea of a player exchange.
The Sun say Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in midfielder Steven Nzonzi, who has apparently failed to turn up for Blackburn’s pre-season training camp in Austria.
It is claimed that Rovers could be willing to sell the 23-year-old for the right price.
Meanwhile, The Daily Telegraph report that the Blues appear to have beaten rivals Tottenham to the signing of Oscar from Internacional, while the Daily Mail say Chelsea have clinched a deal for the highly-rated Brazilian midfielder.
