Leeds transfer details
Leeds lost Kalvin Phillips to Manchester City but they are close to having five experienced signings through the door, with Darko Gyabi also arriving from the Etihad.
“The club wanted quick and decisive transfers in this window and Orta’s decision to stay in England is indicative of an attempt to complete the main strands of this as soon as possible,” writes Phil Hay.
“If Tyler Adams, who flew to England yesterday, and Luis Sinisterra sign as planned in the coming days, Leeds will find themselves in the second week of July with only one major process to negotiate: the sale of Raphinha, which in turn clears the way for them to invest in a new striker, the final target to note on their list.”

The pursuit of Tottenham’s left centre-back
Towards the end of last season, Fabio Paratici drew up his shortlist for the left centre-backs Tottenham Hotspur would target this summer.
Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet was nowhere near the top but the 27-year-old – lined up on loan – is now the likeliest option, allowing Paratici to add more experience and competition to the squad Spurs without risking too much money.

Forest working on Richards, Williams deals
Nottingham Forest are working on permanent deals to sign Omar Richards and Neco Williams, Athleticism understand.
It is hoped deals for Bayern Munich left-back Richards and Liverpool right-back Williams could be in place by the weekend.
Head coach Steve Cooper had identified wide defensive positions as key areas to strengthen ahead of Forest’s return to the Premier League and the pair would strengthen their options at the back, given he typically deploys a three-man defence.

Who could replace Ronaldo?
“While the impact, influence and future of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United is up for debate, their fans can probably agree that Erik ten Hag will have to use this summer to sustain his attack.
“The most obvious way to replace Ronaldo is to bring in a striker chosen by Ten Hag. The new United manager has used a variety of players as a No.9 and isn’t afraid to change his tactical approach to shoot the best out of man.For example, in the 2018-19 Champions League Round of 16, he used Dusan Tadic to create space for his teammates.
There’s no clear idea what a ‘Ten Hag striker’ is, but if the United manager wanted to replace Ronaldo with a hard-core centre-forward, then Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is a worthy candidate. of this name…”
Mark Carey and Carl Anka dug into the data to explain why Osimhen – and several other names – are worth considering…
