Milwall are reportedly close to agreeing a season-long loan deal for Republic of Ireland striker Troy Parrott.

The 18-year-old made his Tottenham debut last campaign, starting an EFL Cup tie and making brief substitute appearances in the Premier League and FA Cup, but manager Jose Mourinho said in March that the Dubliner was  "not ready" for first-team Premier League football.

Milwall finished just two points outside the Championship play-off places this season.

Parrott made his international debut as a 17-year-old in the 3-1 friendly win over New Zealand last November.

Reports in Portugal have also linked Spurs with a swoop for Porto's Colombian winger Luis Diaz.

QPR's Irish left-back Ryan Manning is believed to be a target for West Ham United.

The 24-year-old Galway native has established himself as a starter at Loftus Road this season and could help to boost a Hammers' defence that conceded 62 goals in 38 Premier League games in 2019-20.

Meanwhile, Manchester City have reportedly agreed a £41million fee with Bournemouth to sign defender Nathan Ake.

Holland international Ake has been a standout performer at the Vitality Stadium since joining from Chelsea for a reported £20m in 2017. He had previously been on loan with Eddie Howe's side.

There was expected to be strong interest in the 25-year-old this summer, with his departure becoming almost inevitable when Bournemouth's relegation was confirmed last weekend.

It is understood City are the only club to have so far made an offer.

Joe Hart 

Former City and England goalkeeper Joe Hart is being tipped to join Scottish champions Celtic on a free transfer after being released by Burnley.

Fraser Forster had been expected to make his loan move from Southampton permanent but has opted to return to fight for his place at the Premier League side instead.

Celtic are also close to concluding a £4.5m deal for Greek goalkeeper Vasilios Barkas from AEK Athens.

Premier League champions Liverpool and runners-up Manchester City could be set to go head to head again in the race to sign Sevilla's highly-rated centre-back Diego Carlos.

The 27-year-old Brazilian is believed to have a release clause of £70m.

Liverpool are in the market for a centre-half after the departure of Dejan Lovren to Zenit St Petersburg while City's England defender John Stones has been linked with a move to Arsenal or Chelsea, though concluding a deal for Bournemouth's Ake could compensate sufficiently.

The Reds have apparently also been quoted a price €30m for Spain defensive midfielder Thiago Alcantara by Bayern Munich but are hoping the German champions will accept €20m.

Chelsea are also reportedly preparing a bid for Leicester's England international left-back Ben Chilwell.

The 23-year-old is under contract at the King Power until 2024 and the Foxes would be expected to demand a similar fee to the £80m Manchester United paid them for Harry Maguire last summer.  

Frank Lampard's side have also been linked with a move for one-time Ireland but now England international Declan Rice.

Rice played in the Chelsea academy until he was released aged 14 and joined West Ham.

The 21-year-old has made a name for himself as a defender and defensive midfielder over the last two seasons.

Richarlison scored 13 league goals for Everton last season

Everton star Richarlison says he expects to stay with the Merseysiders for at least another season but that he had agreed with manager Carlo Ancelotti that any offers from one of Europe's elite clubs would be discussed.

The 23-year-old Brazilian joined Everton from Watford for £40 million in 2018.

"It's all been talked about, Ancelotti's already told me he's counting on me for another season, he asked me to hold on for a bit," Richarlison, 23, told Globo Esporte.

"It all depends, if a good offer were to come in, we sit down and talk, that's part of football. We're still talking about these details, working things out. He's bringing in new players, so we'll sit down and talk, but I think I can hold on for another season.

"I've developed considerably at Everton, so much so that I made it into the Brazil squad. I believe that this is one of my greatest achievements."
