Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Saturday, July 18.
Saturday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
Liverpool and Manchester City are reportedly ready to lock horns for the signature of Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos during this summer's transfer window.
The 27-year-old has impressed in La Liga this season following a move from Nantes last summer, and a number of clubs, including Barcelona, are believed to be interested in his signature.
Carlos has a contract at the Estadio Ramon until the summer of 2024, but it is alleged that there is a €75m (£68m) release clause in his current deal.
According to Marca, both Liverpool and City are keen to bring the Brazilian to the Premier League in the upcoming market and are prepared to battle for his signature.
Liverpool are thought to be targeting a new centre-back to replace Dejan Lovren, while City have struggled defensively this season and are likely to improve in that area of the field ahead of next season.
Carlos has scored twice in 40 appearances at club level this season.
Juventus have reportedly opened talks with the representatives of Alexandre Lacazette to discuss a potential summer deal for the Arsenal forward.
The Italian giants are allegedly keen to sign a new striker this summer to replace Gonzalo Higuain, and Lacazette's future was the subject of much speculation prior to the lockdown period.
The 29-year-old has scored three times in his last four appearances for the Gunners, though, having re-established himself as a key part of the first XI.
According to Le 10 Sport, Juve have held negotiations with the Frenchman's representatives to ascertain whether a move would be possible in this summer's transfer window.
The report claims that the Old Lady are hopeful that a new challenge would appeal to Lacazette, who is also believed to be interesting Atletico Madrid ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
The former Lyon attacker has scored 12 times in 35 outings for Mikel Arteta's side this season.
