Tottenham make Ings No.1 priority as Newcastle renew move for Arsenal’s Willock

With Euro 2020 and the Copa America disappearing in football’s rear-view mirror, the vast expanse of the summer transfer window stretches out in front of us.

Okay, it’s not that vast given that the Premier League kicks off again in a little over a month. Nonetheless, transfers are back on the agenda.

With the summer’s international tournaments now over, clubs, players and agents are starting to consider their next moves.

There have already been some high-profile transfers this week, with Rodrigo De Paul joining Atletico Madrid, Mitchel Bakker moving to Bayer Leverkusen and Mat Ryan switching Brighton for Real Sociedad.

While Erling Haaland, Harry Kane and Jack Grealish continue to dominate the headlines, they certainly aren’t alone in being touted for a move.

Here’s our Tuesday evening transfer round-up with all the latest developments.

Juventus interested in Jorginho

Jorginho was hugely influential for Italy at Euro 2020

Having just won Euro 2020 with Italy, Jorginho’s personal cachet is at an all-time high.

According to his agent, Joao Santos, that has made him a target for Juventus.

In an interview with Calciomercato , Santos said: “I confirm it, these attentions have arrived. Of course, at 29, he could do very well for all the top European clubs and many are interested in him.”

Santos also predicted that his client would remain at Chelsea, however. “He has a two-year contract and it’s all in the hands of the club,” he added. “There is the Club World Cup, there is the UEFA Super Cup. For a footballer these are important goals.

“But, the transfer market is always the transfer market and if a major club comes forward seriously with Chelsea then we will evaluate. At the moment, Jorginho will play at Chelsea next season.”

Tottenham make Ings their No.1 priority

Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to bring Danny Ings to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next season, reports The Telegraph .

Ings, 28, rejected a new contract at Southampton earlier this month which would have made him the Saints’ best-paid player.

With Nuno looking to switch to a two-man attack at Spurs, he has identified Ings as an ideal strike partner for Kane.

As such, he is now Spurs’ top transfer target. They are still outwardly bullish about keeping Kane next season, despite low rumblings about the two Manchester clubs’ ongoing interest.

Having failed to make the squad for Arsenal’s pre-season opener against Hibernian, speculation over Joe Willock’s future looks set to intensify.

According to The Times , Newcastle have opened talks with Arsenal over the possibility of taking the Hale End academy graduate on a season-long loan.

Steve Bruce admitted back in May that he would “love” to sign Willock permanently, having borrowed him for the second half of last season.

Willock is keen to secure a future for himself at the Emirates and has been involved in pre-season training, but Mikel Arteta’s intentions are uncertain.
