Kepa Arrizabalaga'sworld-record move to Chelsea close to completion

Athletic Bilbao has confirmed that the goalkeeper's 80 million euro release clause has been paid.

The figure was written into the seven and half year contract extension he signed in January.

It surpasses the 65 million pounds Liverpool paid Roma for Alisson earlier this summer, which means Kepa is set to become the most expensive goalkeeper in history.

 

Aston Villa has rejected a 25-million pound bid for Jack Grealish from Tottenham Hotspur.

Manager Steve Bruce says he's received assurances from the club's owners that Grealish won't be sold before the transfer window closes tomorrow.

 

Wolves have added to their squad once again ahead of their return to the Premier League.

Winger Adama Traore has been signed from Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee, thought to be around 18 million pounds.

 

Celtic are in Champions League action tonight

They’re home to AEK Athens in the first leg of their third qualifying round tie.

The winner will meet Malmo or Hungarian side Vidi in a play-off.

They drew 1 all in Sweden last night.
