Martial agrees to Inter Milan switch while Liverpool and Arsenal target wants move: all the transfer rumours

Manchester United's ANTHONY MARTIAL would reportedly agree to a loan move to Inter Milan, according to today's transfer talk.

The forward would be open to a move to Italy on loan, according to calciomercato.com, paving the way for United to land Inter winger IVAN PERISIC.

The Express report that United have one week to meet Inter's £49million valuation of Perisic or will miss out on one of Jose Mourinho's top summer targets.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are said to be chasing Schalke star MAX MEYER, who has reiterated his desire to leave his current club.

"Let’s see what happens," he told Bild. "I declined the (contract) offer because I was not satisfied with my personal situation. I just saw no chance to develop. It would have been the wrong step, however, because the overall situation has changed."

Meanwhile, another day brings another potential boost to Liverpool's hopes of luring in VIRGIL VAN DIJK.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino has confirmed that the Dutchman wants to leave the south coast, with Liverpool understood to be his desired destination.

 “I would like to bring the boy and to persuade him that he’s important for us and the club will not sell him," said the Saints boss.

“We are expecting the best for everyone, even for Virgil, but he doesn't want to be part of the team. This is the reason he is aside from the team."

However, that doesn't mean Southampton are ready to concede defeat and open the door for Van Dijk to leave. And Pellegrino confirms the club's position hasn't altered.

"We continue in the same way. The situation is the same," he said. “I can’t say no more, because the situation is the boy is aside of the team because he doesn't want to play for us.”

Meanwhile, the Sun are reporting that Barcelona will attempt an audacious bid to sign both PHILIPPE COUTINHO and EDEN HAZARD after Neymar's move to PSG is confirmed. The Catalan club will net all but £200 million from the sale of the Brazilian and as much as half of that could go to Chelsea, should they part ways with their world class winger Hazard. Coutinho, meanwhile, is seen as the long-term successor to Andres Iniesta.

L'Equipe report that Monaco forward KYLIAN MBAPPE has decided to leave the club, with Real Madrid, Manchester City and Paris St Germain in the race to sign him.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has told his club's board that they must sign striker DIEGO COSTA, who Chelsea value at £50million, according to the Evening Standard.
