Transfer summary

I have no inside info from the club, but if the press is to be believed (ha ha!) this seems to be the most convincing summary:

Martinelli - top prospect, 18 year old Brazilian wide forward - confirmed

Everton Soares - [] 23 year old forward - recently Man of the Match and Golden Boot winner in the Copa America - permanent deal apparently agreed - medical being arranged

Dani Ceballos - [] Real Madrid 22 year old central midfielder - recently played in Spanish team that won under-21 European championship. Likely to be a loan - may or may not include an option to buy.

Kieran Tierney - [] High quality Celtic left back though has had lots of injuries. 22 year old. Two bids rejected but looks like eventually we bid enough and get him permanently.

William Saliba - [] 18 year old St Etienne - hot prospect centre back. We are competing with Spurs for him but he will go back on loan for next season to St Etienne. Palyer apparently prefers us to Spurs (I like him already)

No serious news yet on these gaps

* No central defender that can slot in immediately next season - surely the biggest remaining gap

* No second choice goalkeeper

These guys have come back from loan

Chambers, Asano, Nwakali,

Seems like we are promoting these to the first team:

Nelson, Smith-Rowe, Nketiah, Willock

We have offloaded already:

Ospina, Cech, Lichsteiner, Pleguezuelo, Bramall, Gilmour, Suarez, Wellbeck, Ramsey

We seem to be trying to offload

Jenkinson, Elneny, Mustafi, Ozil, Koscielny, Bielik

These guys have gone out on loan:

Iliev, Osei-Tutu, Ballard, Sheaf
