It may only be in the infant stages, but already the transfer window is sparking into life. Clubs are wasting little time in getting their squad business under way, knowing that the longer the window stays open, the higher the prices go. 

Liverpool are today set to formally announce the arrival of record signing Darwin Nunez, after the 22-year-old completed the latter stages on his eye-watering move from Benfica – just a day after arch title rivals Manchester City confirmed the official arrive of wonderkid Erling Haaland.

Elsewhere, Manchester United are back in the market after already missing out on several targets – including Nunez. Now, however, the Red Devils look poised to go up against Liverpool once again as both teams very much like the look of an emerging Italian prodigy.

Gabriel Jesus now appears ever closer to signing on the dotted line for Arsenal. The Brazilian ace is not short of suitors, though a potential lucrative La Liga switch to Real Madrid has now found itself in hot water. With options being shutdown, Jesus is in a prime position to once again link up with his former coach Mikel Arteta, this time wearing the red of the Gunners.

The cash is soon to be flashed on a major scale as Everton find themselves subject of a takeover bid, which could see a familiar face in the world of Premier League chiefs making a return to England’s top division.

Nunez set for Liverpool medical

Darwin Nunez is set to officially become a Liverpool player today once he undergoes the second part of his medical with the Reds.

The Uruguayan forward was in England on Monday to complete initial checks but the main chunk of the procedure will take place later on, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Liverpool are expected to pay an initial fee of £64.2m in exchange for his services, although the deal could eventually rise to around £85.6m when performance-related add-ons are taken into account.

Meanwhile, a six-year contract has been agreed with Nunez, who has emerged as one of Europe’s hottest talents over the last few years during his time at Benfica.
