Premier League transfer round-up: Man City sign Real Madrid full-back

The transfer window has swung wide open and some of the biggest names in world football are on the move.

The Premier League has gone bananas with clubs shattering records left, right and centre - Chelsea broke theirs on Friday finally completing a deal for Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata while Alexandre Lacazette joined Arsenal earlier in the summer for a cool £52m.

Manchester United splashed a non-club record fee on Romelu Lukaku - but it was still £75m - while Neymar could actually leave Barcelona in what would be a world record £195m move to PSG.

Manchester City have signed Danilo from Real Madrid for £26.9m and are expected to follow that up with the £53m purchase of Benjamin Mendy to take their spending on full-backs to nearly £130m in a week.

Chelsea also got their hands on Antonio Rudiger earlier this month but Liverpool's pursuit of Naby Keita is beginning to annoy Leipzig with lots of talk but little action.

The Toffees meanwhile Everton have signed six new faces including United's Wayne Rooney.

Wenger says foreign clubs do not have advantage

Arsene Wenger has once again sought to ward off interest in Alexis Sanchez, insisting that Arsenal won’t listen to any offers for the Chilean as he dismissed recent reports linking the player to Paris Saint-Germain as “media imagination”. PSG have stepped up their pursuit of the 28-year-old in recent weeks, with the Ligue 1 giants poised to launch a £70m bid for Sanchez.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is optimistic that Emre Can will stay at the club after 'good contract talks' were held with the midfielder.

The 23-year-old has one year left on his current deal and discussions over a new agreement have appeared to stall.

Can has subsequently been linked with a move to Serie A giants Juventus but Klopp is confident that Liverpool will secure a new deal for his compatriot.

"You can imagine we're involved in talks and we all feel good and confident in this moment," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"That means they're not the worst talks but until anything is done or signed there's nothing to say.

"Emre is a very important player for us. We don't want to sell or lose players who are in our first line-up or close to it.

"Emre is certainly one of them. We want to keep him and we're having good talks."
