Leeds United transfer news: Leeds place £60m-£70m price tag on star player, Liverpool forward closing in on AC Milan move

The transfer window officially opens in just a few days as clubs across the Premier League prepare to ramp up their efforts to bring in new players.

The transfer window officially opens for clubs across England to make domestic transfers on Friday and there are quite a few big moves already being rumoured.

More than one of Leeds United’s star players are attracting interest from some of the biggest clubs in England and Europe but the Yorkshire club won’t be selling on the cheap and have placed a £60m to £70m price tag on the head of one of their stars.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United are expected to be in for a bus transfer window but appear to have pulled out of the race to sign a Villarreal player who is also on the radar of Manchester United.

Several Premier League clubs are understood to be keen on Montpellier’s Stephy Mavididi with Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United amongst them.

Elsewhere, Brentford are keen on signing a player from relegated Watford but the Hornets are expected to ask for a £20m transfer fee.

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will battle for the signing of a RB Leipzig defender with the German’s keen to keep a hold of the players while a current Spurs star is attracting interest from Ajax.

Elsewhere, Liverpool have set a £15m price tag for a Bournemouth loan star who the Cherries are keen to land permanently while a Reds strike is set to complete his move to Italy later this week.

Finally, Aston Villa are set to finalise a deal to keep a loan player at the club.
