The transfer window for Europe's biggest clubs is closed, but click here for all the deals, and keep track of who has joined the big boys. Transfer Talk will continue to scour the world's media and set correspondents loose to see what's on the agenda for the summer.

TOP STORY: Liverpool to the Maxi

They may have drawn a blank in Sunday's Merseyside derby, but Liverpool are hoping to add more goal power to their ranks by splashing the cash on Celta Vigo star Maxi Gomez.

And if the move comes off, the Merseysiders could have their former striker Luis Suarez to thank, says the Sun.

Liverpool are likely to be fighting it out with Chelsea for the signature of Gomez, who scored 17 La Liga goals last season.

He has three years to run on his Celta Vigo contract, but £35 million could be enough to bring him to Anfield, with Suarez putting in a good word for his old club.


15.32 GMT: The Mirror are reporting that Barcelona are interested in signing Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal.

The report adds that see Monreal, whose contract runs out in the summer, as a potential back-up to Jordi Alba.

14.43 GMT: Juventus have made an enquiry for Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio after he was left on the bench again, according to Tuttosport.

Sunday's Clasico defeat was the 17th time Asensio has started on the bench this season and could be ready for a move.

13.55 GMT: Gianluigi Buffon has said he was wanted by both Manchester clubs, but opted to stay at Parma and then Juventus when United and City came calling.

Speaking to Rio Ferdinand on BT Sport, he said: "When I played for Parma, Sir Alex Ferguson tracked me closely for two to three years. He would always send scouts to watch me. Parma was my world and I did not feel like leaving.

"Later, I had a very big offer from Manchester City when they started to build the team. They wanted me to be their first big signing, but I stayed with Juventus."

13.19 GMT: The Leicester Mercury suggests that Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata could link up with ex-Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers following his move to the Midlands, saying Fenerbahce midfielder Elif Elmas is also among the players who could interest Rodgers.

12.47 GMT: Sky Sports reports that Manchester City will offer midfielder Bernardo Silva a new six-year contract following his impressive form this season.

12.00 GMT: Barcelona have announced the cancellation of Sergi Samper's contract ahead of the midfielder's expected move to Vissel Kobe.

Samper, 24, will give a farewell news conference on Tuesday before joining up with Andres Iniesta, David Villa and Lukas Podolski at the J.League side who, like Barcelona, have links with Japanese media giant Rakuten.

11.05 GMT: Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks has signed a new "long-term" contract with the Premier League side.

The Wales international was linked with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year, but they would now have to pay a much higher price to prise him away from the Vitality stadium.

10.10 GMT: Leipzig have denied that any discussions have taken place between star attacker Timo Werner and Bayern Munich.

Werner has also been linked with Premier League title-chasers Liverpool, but it is Leipzig's Bundesliga rivals Bayern who have been the name mentioned most in connection with the Germany international.

The club's head of global soccer, Oliver Mintzlaff, said at the weekend: "Bayern certainly have not held talks with Timo because he's a player under contract here, and Bayern always abide by FIFA regulations. That's why I'd like to think there are no agreements in place."

09.15 GMT: Mauro Icardi's wife and agent Wanda Nara insists she is not the cause of her husband's recent issues with Inter Milan.

Icardi was stripped of the club captaincy a fortnight ago and he has not appeared for the Serie A club since, with a knee injury given as the official reason for his absence.

However, it has been claimed that Nara's weekly appearances on Mediaset, in which she has criticised club management and, prior to Icardi losing the captaincy, his teammates for not providing enough support, could be the main reason.

But speaking on Sunday night, she said: "From this studio of Tiki Taka, I've always spoken positively about Inter," she said. "Am I not even able to make positive suggestions? I told [Inter] that if my presence on Tiki Taka were in any way a problem for them, I would take a step back, but they replied that it was not a problem."

08.25 GMT: Asked about constant speculation linking him with a future move to Real Madrid, Neymar kept his cards close to his chest but also stressed that he was happy at Paris Saint-Germain and in France after chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisted he would stay.

"Real is one of the biggest clubs in the world," he said. "Any player that Real are keen on would feel the lure of playing there. Today, I am very happy in Paris -- I am doing very well here. However, nobody knows the future.

"Today, I am very happy here. If I speak only about right now, I only have eyes for Paris. I am not attracted to anybody else -- I do not want to leave Paris. Of course, though, Real Madrid is a great team -- one of the greatest in the world, and I respect them a lot. However, I see myself in Paris today."

PAPER TALK (by Richard Edwards): Bundesliga scouts set to descend on Arsenal U18s game

The Sun reports that the great and the good of German youth football will flock to both Friday's under-18 clash between Arsenal and Chelsea and the U23 match between Chelsea and Manchester City later that day.

It says scouts from every Bundesliga club will be present when the juniors play as they try to unearth the next Jadon Sancho after the ex-Manchester City player took the German top flight by storm this season.

Arsenal and Chelsea play at the Shenley Training Centre, while Chelsea's U23 side take on Manchester City at Aldershot in the evening.

It's a double-header that has proved too good for Bundesliga scouts to turn down - potentially not great news for clubs who fear young stars will head to Germany.


- Milan are preparing a raid for Sassuolo midfielder Stefano Sensi, according Calciomercato, which reports that they are readying a big-money bid.
