Lyon are not expected to sign Tottenham and France midfielder Tanguy Ndombele on a permanent deal, with the 25-year-old likely to return to north London after his loan spell with the French club.

Football Insider reported that the midfielder does not figure in Antonio Conte’s plans and another transfer saga is expected in the upcoming window.

Arsenal have reached full agreement with São Paulo to sign 19-year-old winger Marquinhos, for around £3 million.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano said the highly-rated Brazilian is set to sign a five-year contract with the Gunners, as the North London club prepares their opening bid for Gabriel Jesus.

Former Manchester United midfielder Kleberson has told Goal he believes Manchester United should only pursue Declan Rice if he will fit in with the system used by Erik ten Hag as they weigh up a potential £100million swoop for the midfielder.

Ten Hag is set to make a new midfielder his primary target in the transfer window as he looks to bolster his squad. The England international is wanted by a number of clubs including United, Man City and and Chelsea.
