Here are Tuesday’s Premier League transfer rumours

Newcastle United transfer news: Lyon will ‘listen to offers’ for Newcastle and Arsenal target, Fulham have £14.8m defender bid rejected

Eddie Howe’s side continue to prepare for the new Premier League season and make moves behind the scenes in the transfer window.

There is just over one month left in the summer transfer window and less than two weeks till the new Premier League season kicks off as clubs continue to look at ways to strengthen their first team squads.

French side Lyon have said they will ‘listen to offers’ for a Newcastle United and Arsenal target while Leeds United and AC Milan are locked in a battle to sign a Belgian international midfielder and the Italian side are reportedly planning to increase their offer in an attempt to give themselves the edge.

Meanwhile, Chelsea could be prepared to offer one of the current players to RB Leipzig as they target a defender from the German side while Fulham have had a bid for a defender rejected.

Blackburn Rovers are said to be keen to see a Brighton & Hove Albion defender return to the club after a successful loan spell last season and West Ham United have had a £35.5m bid for an Italian striker accepted.

Elsewhere, Southampton have made a ‘late move’ to try and sign a Manchester City winger and Nottingham Forest have reached an agreement to sign a Belgian midfielder for £12.75 million.

Finally, the agent of an Everton defender has rubbished reports the player is set to leave loan this window by calling them “embarrassing” on social media.
