  • Hearts have signed Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Pereira
  • Barcelona have prepared an audacious offer to sign Neymar
  • The offer is £93m plus Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic

Wanted: Mohamed Elneny

Galatasaray want to wrap up a deal for Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny.

The Turkish giants have been monitoring the midfielder, who has dramatically fallen down the pecking order under Unai Emery.

Elneny wasn’t included in Arsenal’s squad for Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle and looks destined to leave north London.

And according to Turkish media outlet Ajansspor, Galatasaray are confident a season-long loan deal will be concluded before the European window slams shut.

Manchester City avoid transfer ban

Manchester City have avoided a transfer ban despite admitting to breaching regulations relating to the international transfer and registration of under-18 players.

The Premier League champions have instead been fined £314,650 by FIFA after breaching article 19, among others, of the world governing body’s regulations on the status and transfer of players.

A FIFA statement read: “The Disciplinary Committee took into account the fact that Manchester City FC accepted its responsibility and sanctioned the club with a fine of Swiss francs 370,000.”

The Premier League champions were facing a ban from making signings, a punishment meted out to Chelsea – for two transfer windows – earlier this year.

Philippe Coutinho interest confirmed

Bayern Munich are interested in signing Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

That’s according to a Barcelona spokesman, who confirmed the German champions are looking to bring Coutinho to the Allianz Arena.

Coutinho could be allowed to leave the Nou Camp to generate funds and make space for international compatriot Neymar.

“There is interest from FC Bayern, but there is no agreement. That is all there is to say at the moment,” the Barca spokesman told Goal.

Lionel Messi phone call

Lionel Messi has reportedly phoned Neymar to persuade him to reject Real Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane’s side have emerged as contenders to sign the Brazilian forward, 27.

But Spanish newspaper Marca claim Messi rang Neymar to convince him to opt for a return to the Nou Camp instead.

The Brazilian’s PSG departure looks almost certain after the club removed merchandise bearing any reference to the player from the shelves of their club shop.

Two-player Neymar deal

Barcelona have prepared an audacious offer to sign Neymar.

That’s according to ESPN FC, who claim the Catalan giants have prepared a two-player plus cash proposal to bring the Brazilian superstar back to the Nou Camp.

Barcelona are willing to offer £93million in cash with Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic also included in the deal.

ESPN FC say PSG are interested in Coutinho but aren’t too keen on Rakitic and would prefer full-back Semedo instead.

The French champions have already rejected Barcelona’s opening offer of Coutinho plus £55million for Neymar.

£15m Liverpool talks

Roma are reportedly in talks with Liverpool over a move for Dejan Lovren.

It’s understood Roma have been monitoring Lovren’s situation all summer with a view to making a bid before the European transfer window closes on September 2.

And according to reports, the Italians have made their move for the out-of-favour defender.

The Daily Mail claims the Serie A side have opened talks with Liverpool over a £15million move for the centre-back.
