Newcastle United and their Premier League rivals continued to be linked with a host of players as the new season nears.
And reports today suggest that Newcastle are keen on bringing in a cultured midfielder, but another player could be on his way out of St James's Park.
Meanwhile, there are updates on a number of other teams including Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Here's the news hitting the headlines today:
Newcastle United have reportedly had a bid for Lille midfielder Thiago Maia rejected. The 21-year-old, who helped Brazil to an Olympics gold medal in 2016, was one of the shining lights in Lille's poor season as he excelled in the heart of the French club's midfielder.
