Liverpool planning Alisson contract talks
Liverpool wants to sign Alisson Becker to a new long-term deal.
The Reds are eager to begin discussions with their highly-rated goalkeeper after he returns from Copa America duty with Brazil later this summer, according to the BBC. Alisson signed a six-year contract when he arrived from AS Roma for £66.8 million in 2018, thus he is already under contract until 2024.
Liverpool, on the other hand, would undoubtedly want to reward the 28-year-old for his outstanding performances, which included a memorable goal in a critical win against West Bromwich Albion, which was important in ensuring a top-four position and Champions League qualifying.
Man City only want to pay £100m for Kane
Manchester City is interested in Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, although he is valued at roughly £100 million ($141 million).
According to the Manchester Evening News, this might be a difficulty in negotiations because Tottenham are aiming for £150 million ($212 million), and finding players to employ in a part-exchange deal appears to be tough.
Arsenal make Buendia bid
Arsenal is rumoured to have made their initial bid for Norwich star Emi Buendia, in case you missed it yesterday evening. According to various sources, a £30 million proposal was made on Wednesday and was promptly rejected.

According to Marca, a portion of those money will be used to sign Rodrigo de Paul from Udinese.
Man United confident over Sancho deal
While Manchester United is unlikely to sign Saul Niguez, they look to have received enough of support in their pursuit of Jadon Sancho. Sancho, a Borussia Dortmund and England winger, has long been Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top transfer target, and The Athletic now reports that United are “pushing ahead” with a deal for the highly-rated winger, amid increased hopes that they may eventually reach an agreement.
Dortmund’s willingness to accept a lesser cost for Sancho than the £100 million initially asked appears to be rising.

Liverpool are still being linked with a move for Raphinha, with the Daily Express stating that the Reds are currently leading the fight for a player worth at least £32 million.

The player’s agents are in continuous, uninterrupted communication with Arsenal, and the player is following developments via text messages with his camp. There is no talk of an official bid yet.
