Barcelona spend £100m of Neymar cash on Dortmund 20-year-old while Liverpool target Bayern Munich midfielder: all the transfer rumours

Barcelona have agreed a £138million deal for Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele.

The Catalan club will pay out £100m up front for the 20-year-old. After the Neymar deal the French international is the second most expensive player in the world.

It's been reported the club have inserted a 400m euro release clause in his contract.

Meanwhile, Liverpool could make a move to raid Bayern Munich before the transfer window closes, according to the latest transfer rumours. The Anfield side have been linked with a loan bid for midfielder RENATO SANCHES by German outlet Kicker.

The Portuguese player moved to the German champions for over £30 million last summer after impressing for Benfica and for his country but made just 17 appearances in all competitions for his new club.

That has led to speculation about a move away and with Liverpool missing out on top midfield target NABY KEITA, Jurgen Klopp could now turn his eye to the Bayern Munich man.

Meanwhile, Liverpool fans are wondering what they can expect after former Newcastle player and current pundit Mick Quinn tweeted that there "could be exciting news for @LFC fans later."

In Spain, CRISTIANO RONALDO has demanded a massive pay rise at Real Madrid, according to the Sun.

The Portugal international, who has recently been unsettled, wants to be paid £37million a year to stay at the Bernabeu.

Arsenal could be ready to sell ALEX OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN, reports the Mirror.

The England international looks set to turn down the Gunners' final contract offer, with Chelsea and Liverpool on red alert.

JACK WILSHERE could also be set to leave the Emirates, with Arsene Wenger prepared to sell him, writes the Guardian.

Italian media are reporting that Chelsea target ANTONIO CANDREVA is keen on staying at Inter Milan.
