Schneiderlin on his way to Man United and today's biggest transfer news

Bournemouth have also smashed their transfer record while Liverpool chase two strikers.

HERE’S YOUR DAILY dose of transfer gossip as the madness of the summer transfer window begins and who better to guide us through the latest wheelin’ and dealin’s than ‘Arry himself.

Just don’t use the words wheelin’ or dealin’, alright?

Exodus part II: With Nathaniel Clyne on his way to Liverpool it seems Morgan Schneiderlin will also be on the way out of St Marys, and according to the Daily Mirror, his destination will be Old Trafford. Louis Van Gaal has given Ed Woodward the go-ahead to launch a €34 million bid for the holding midfielder.

Free signing: Tottenham are allegedly close to signing Dnipro winger Yehven Konoplyanka on a free transfer. The Ukrainian wide-man is out of contract with the Europa League finalists and is keen on a move. Liverpool are no longer thought to be interested in the player, and after Sevilla ended talks with him it is Spurs who are in pole position for his signature. Eurosport reports that he is to undergo a medical in England soon.

Big bucks: The Guardian report that Ipswich Town’s Tyrone Mings has agreed personal terms with Bournemouth over an €11 million transfer to the newly promoted club. It’s a fantastic piece of business from the Tractor Boys as they only forked out £10,000 to sign him from Chippenham Town in 2012.

Sweet talk: Carlos Bacca is keen on a move to Liverpool, and it appears that Liverpool may be keen on a move for him. His agent name-checked Liverpool recently, stating they are a club that fits the bill for the Colombian. Brendan Rogers must decide whether 24-year-old Christian Benteke represents better value than 28-year-old Bacca.

This again: Nicolas Gaitan has been linked with a move to Manchester United since the beginning of time it seems. The Argentine winger is 27 now, and has been on the club’s radar since he was 21 if you believe reports. The Benfica star’s agent talked up a possible move too. ”Everything is possible, there is a deal with Manchester United,” Jose Irrabaren said.

Pay rise: Brazilian midfielder Paulinho is seemingly one lucky boy. The Spurs flop has been poor ever since his €24 million transfer to North London in 2013 but he looks set to be offered an escape route by former Brazil manager Luis Felipe Scolari. Sky Sports report that he will also get a pay-rise of over €40,000 per week if he signs for Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande and Spurs are hopeful of recouping most of their initial investment in the player.

Speedster: Arsenal have been quiet so far in this transfer window, but that could all change as Arsene Wenger eyes a bid for Borussia Dortmund speed merchant Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Guardian report that only an offer in excess of €55 million would prize the Gabon attacker away, so it’s hard to see this one happening.

Tempted: Arturo Vidal is another man constantly linked with a move to the Premier League, and this summer Arsenal have been his biggest admirers apparently. Alexis Sanchez has been trying to persuade his international team-mate to join the Gunners and Arsenal are readying a €25 million bid according to The Express.

Change of heart: Spanish forward Pedro only recently signed a new contract with Barcelona, but apparently Manchester City and Liverpool are still keen on the winger/striker. He’s said to have had a change of heart about staying at the Nou Camp as he doesn’t like warming the bench while Luis Suárez, Lionel Messi and Neymar do their thing. He would cost about €25 million according to Talksport
