Door opens for Man Utd to make £35m signing, Arsenal urged to make shock £50m Tottenham raid and Liverpool ready to lower asking price for Wales star

Here are the latest transfer headlines and rumours on the morning of Saturday, September 26.

Wolves star ‘open to everything’ amid Man Utd link

Wolves star Raul Jimenez admits he is “open to everything” amid speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.

The Mexican ace scored 44 goals in 99 appearances in his first two seasons with the Molineux club to catch the Red Devils’ attention – with a £35m move being previously touted

“I have three more seasons left [on my contract],” said the 29-year-old. “If I stay here at Wolves, I’d be very happy.

“We know that anything can happen and there could be a change. I’m open to everything.

“I already had the luck to play some games [in the Champions League for former club Benfica]. It’s something incredible and it’s in my plans to play again, but first I have to do what I have to do with Wolves.”

The player’s ambition and willingness to consider offers is said to have potentially opened the door to a move.

Arsenal tipped with shock move for Spurs star

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has urged his former club to make a stunning bid to sign Dele Alli from their bitter rivals Tottenham this summer.

Alli has been touted with a move away from Spurs after he was left out of the squad from the team that beat Southampton 5-2 last weekend, and he has been linked with the likes of PSG.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Parlour suggested Alli could fit the role, although he did admit a deal would be hard to do.

“I’ve always said they ( Arsenal ) are lacking goals from midfield,” Parlour said. “I don’t think Spurs would sell Dele Alli to Arsenal, I think there would be uproar from the Spurs fans if that happened.

“He would certainly be a good fit. I’m trying to think what he would be worth. I would say £50m has got to be the marker.

“One thing about Arsenal, I think they are lacking goals from central midfield areas, so he could tick that box. He does score goals, he will probably get you 10 from midfield if he plays on a regular basis.”

Liverpool willing to lower asking price for Wilson

Liverpool are likely to accept a figure lower than their original asking price for Wales international Harry Wilson, who is wanted by Burnley in the ongoing transfer window.

The Reds have ruled out sending Wilson on another loan deal and are only prepared to accept bids to sell him on a permanent deal.

Liverpool are believed to have set an asking price of £20m for the winger but journalist Alan Nixon reports that the Anfield club could be looking at a fee closer to £15m.

Atletico Madrid closing in on move for Arsenal midfielder

Atletico Madrid are reported to be closing in on a loan move for Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

Gunners target Thomas Partey is not thought to be part of the negotiations, though, according to the Daily Mail.

The article states that Atletico want £45million for Partey – which is his current release clause.

The Spanish club are said to want Torreira on a straight loan deal.

However, Arsenal apparently want to sell the player – or strike a loan agreement with an obligation to buy.

Italian club Torino are also keen on Torreira, with a £22m deal reportedly being discussed.

Man Utd keeper keen on Everton move

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is said to be keen on a move to Everton.

The Times reports that the Toffees are eyeing a move for Romero, which would put pressure on current number one Jordan Pickford.

England international Pickford was at fault for both goals conceded in Everton’s 5-2 win over Fleetwood Town in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening.

Carlo Ancelotti is apparently hoping that more competition in the position could help improve the form of Pickford, who has been the undisputed first choice stopper since his £30million move from Sunderland in 2017.
