The biggest transfer stories of the day. These are the deals that are happening, or at least on the verge of happening.

Raheem Sterling will join Chelsea ahead of the US tour

There was little doubt that the deal would go through, but Chelsea and Manchester City have agreed a fee of £47.5m for the England winger, according to The Athletic. The clubs have not yet announced the official transfer.

As he entered the final year of his contract, City wanted to move on before losing Sterling on a free transfer at the end of the season. One of Chelsea’s top targets, Sterling is expected to slot right in on the left wing and expectations will be high considering his goalscoring record at City. In 339 appearances for the club, Sterling scored 131 goals, and he will now be the centerpiece of a dangerous attack. The Blues are expected to add Sterling ahead of their tour of the United States.

After this move, City are certainly weaker on the wings, but Phil Foden and Cole Palmer should be able to handle the added pressure. The addition of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez means this attack could be stronger than ever before at the No. 9 as the team dreams of Champions League glory. But a busy summer is expected to continue. After the addition of Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips, they likely will submitting an offer to Marc Cucurella of Brighton as well, according to CBS Sports soccer insider Fabrizio Romano. If Nathan Ake leaves for ChelseaCity are expected to go after RB Leipzig’s Josko Guardiol.

Entering the penalty area

These moves may not be inevitable, but there is plenty of transfer fire in all the smoke these players and teams could be blowing.

Can PSG enter the Robert Lewandowski sweepstakes?

According to Team, Lewandowski is PSG’s number one attacking target to pair with Kylian Mbappe. Given Barcelona’s financial issues, they have yet to present an offer that Bayern Munich would accept, especially as the German side refuse to accept an installment deal. If PSG were to make a move, it could potentially speed up Neymar’s exit from the club, although it is a more difficult move than expected due to his automatic one-year contract extension, while new manager Christophe Galtier has said he is counting on the Brazilian.

The game built

These moves may be speculative, but they are ones to keep in mind.

Marseille are looking to add Nuno Tavares on loan

Team reports that Tavares is a priority transfer for the French club. With previous moves for William Saliba, Sead Kolasinac and Matteo Guendouzi, the road between North London and Marseille is smooth. But this move is a little harder to pull off. Marseille expressed an interest in Tavares before Jorge Sampaoli left, but new coach Igor Tudor is reportedly still interested in securing his services.

Tavares has had a difficult start to life at Arsenal with inconsistent performances, but they would like to add Lisandro Martinez to challenge Keiran Tierney on the left wing. If the Gunners are able to complete the move amid interest from Manchester United, then Taveres is likely to be allowed to move. The deal is likely to include an option to buy as well.

Arsenal want to sign Lucas Paqueta

After being praised by the addition of Raphinha from Leeds United, Arsenal are chasing another Brazilian striker. Lucas Paqueta could be on the move as Lyon have confirmed they have received offers for him. Paqueta has asked to leave the team which will make Arsenal easier to manage, but that depends on how strong Arsenal’s offer is. The draw to play with his national team mates may help in this situation, but Arsenal’s inability to deliver Champions League football has them in player negotiations.
