Al-Ittihad are preparing a £118m bid for Mohamed Salah, despite Liverpool insisting their 31-year-old Egypt forward is not for sale.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp would be “furious” if the Reds are tempted to accept Saudi side Al-Ittihad’s offer for Salah with the transfer deadline on Friday.
Tottenham Hotspur were in talks with Barcelona over a season-long loan deal for 20-year-old Spain forward Ansu Fati but he is said to have rejected the move to the London side.
The 20-year-old Spain forward will travel to England on Thursday after being convinced by Brighton’s style and the coaching of Roberto de Zerbi.
The deal will be a straight loan without an option or obligation to buy as he hopes to figure for Barcelona again next season.
Elsewhere Manchester United want to sign a midfielder before the transfer deadline, with Fiorentina’s Morocco international Sofyan Amrabat, 27, their prime target.
Fiorentina have rejected United’s £1.7m loan offer for Amrabat but will consider a deal with an obligation to buy.
Manchester United have also contacted Tottenham over a deal for 28-year-old Denmark midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
