July 16 Transfer Zone: Varane talks progressing and a busy day of rumours for Arsenal

Another day, another ride on the transfer rumour carousel. Planet Sport is here to give you the hottest transfer news from the social channels.

Raphael Varane

It seems that a deal for Raphael Varane is almost there. Everything between Manchester United and the French defender is sorted, most likely only verbally though. It's now down to United and Real Madrid to sort out the proper legal stuff.

No official offer has been made yet, but it seems pretty certain this move is going to happen.

Kieran Trippier

Kieran Trippier has been looking for a move back to the Premier League as he wants a shot at the league title. His prefered destination is the red of Manchester, and it seems the move is definitely on.

Atletico Madrid and United have sorted out a price, the player wants it. All that's left is for the Englishman to get back from his well-deserved holiday to make it official.

Tammy Abraham

Arsenal have had the most talk of the transfer rumours today, with the biggest being they are considering going for Tammy Abraham.

A questionable move as a striker isn't exactly a position Arsenal are lacking in, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and young Gabriel Martinelli all in the building.

Are they really willing to fork out £40million for another attacking option?

Aaron Ramsdale

Another bit of Arsenal news, this time from the other end of the pitch. Reportedly, they have enquired about West Brom's Sam Johnstone and are interested in Sheffield United's Aaron Ramsdale.

However, Gunners fans don't seem too happy with their targets, not when they know who else is out there.

Never gonna happen…

After both attending Marco Verratti's wedding, Kylian Mbappe and Zlatan Ibrahimovic decided to get a snap together.

And that's as close as they'll get to lining up together despite what @ItsAhmedIndeed would have you believe.

And why would Lionel Messi want this every single day?
