Pundit Arena Transfer Daily.
Welcome to Pundit Arena Transfer Daily, where we will bring you all of the latest news during the summer transfer window.
Three Brazil squad members are set to move from the north of England to the south, with Gabriel Jesus, Richarlison and Raphinha all on the verge of completing big transfer moves.
Gabriel Jesus transfer announcement imminent.
Manchester City striker Jesus has reportedly passed his medical at Arsenal ahead of a £45 million move from the Premier League champions.
An official announcement from the Gunners is thought to be imminent and the move would bring an end to the forwards’s five-and-a-half year spell at the Etihad Stadium.
During that time, Jesus scored 95 goals in all competitions for Pep Guardiola’s side, while picking up four Premier League medals.
Richarlison, meanwhile, is set to swap Everton for Tottenham Hotspur, with the clubs said to have reached an agreement last night.
The Toffees forward will reportedly undergo a medical in Brazil today ahead of linking up with Antonio Conte’s side.
Richarlison joined Everton from Watford for £50 million in the summer of 2018 and has gone on to score 53 goals in all competitions for the Toffees.
His performances towards the end of last season were key to keeping Frank Lampard’s side in the Premier League after they flirted with relegation for most of the season.

Raphinha transfer latest.
While things look cut-and-dry for Jesus and Richarlison, Raphinha’s expected move from Leeds United to Chelsea could be hijacked at the last minute by Barcelona.
Leeds and Chelsea had agreed a £60 million fee, and the winger was reportedly happy with the personal terms being offered by the Stamford Bridge outfit.
However, it is being reported this morning that Raphinha’s agent Deco has been in touch with Barcelona to see if the Catalan club can match the offer, while Arsenal may still be in the mix.
Chelsea are waiting for Raphinha’s answer. Been told Deco has direct talk with Chelsea scheduled tomorrow 🚨 #Raphinha
Talks still on, after agreement with Leeds [£60m].
Barcelona and Arsenal will try until the end.
