With Dean Henderson on the sidelines and the transfer window inexorably closing, Nottingham Forest are keen to hire a replacement goalkeeper. A peripheral figure at Paris Saint-Germain these days, Keylor Navas have been identified as their main targets. A three-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid, the Costa Rica international plays second fiddle to Gianluigi Donnarumma at PSG and is yet to start a Ligue 1 or Champions League game for the French club this season.

Leicester Manager Brendan Rodgers is looking to freshen up his squad and is ready to sanction a surprise move for the Leeds United winger Jack Harrison, who has 18 months left on his contract and has also been linked with potential moves to Arsenal and Newcastle. Rodgers is also hoping to strengthen his back line with the signing Harry Soutar, the Stoke centre-half who was such a rock at the heart of Australia’s defense during the World Cup. Leicester have also been linked with the Angers midfielder Azzedine Ounahibut will have to dish it out with Leeds if they are to land the Moroccan international.

The word from Germany is Liverpool is in the box seat to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer, despite great interest in the midfielder from Manchester City and Real Madrid. Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg claims Jürgen Klopp is “pushing, pushing, pushing” to sign the 19-year-old, who may think twice about moving to Merseyside if Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Having already missed out on strikers Danny Ings, Kevin Schade and Georginio Rutter, their eyes were wiped by West Ham, Brentford and Leeds respectively, managerless and rudderless Everton have got their loan to Villarreal’s Arnaut Danjuma hijacked Tottenham. Andy Hunter, our man on the Merseyside beat, reports that the former Bournemouth striker refused to submit his registration to Goodison Park’s HR department, despite agreeing a move and posing for media shots in his Everton finery at the weekend . He will instead be revealed as a brilliant loanee at White Hart Lane in no time.

In other frustrating news for Evertonians, Anthony Gordon hell seems to move to Newcastle although Eddie Howe was predictably coy when asked about the winger’s plight on Tuesday night.

Celtic striker Giorgious Giakoumakis could be headed stateside, with the MLS side Atlanta United reported to be in talks with the Scottish champions with a view to bringing him to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium as a designated player. Sleep-deprived transfer boffin Fabrizio Romano reports that Atlanta have emerged as late contenders to sign the Greek, who appeared to be heading to Japan to play for Urawa Red Diamonds. The news paper also reports that Brighton have made an opening bid of around £10m for the Shakhtar Donetsk central defender Mykola Matvienkobut will need to increase their offer to have any chance of landing the 26-year-old.
