Arsenal have joined the Tottenham and Liverpool in the hunt for Dejan Lovren.

Southampton look set to almost double their money on the centre-half they bought for £8.5million last summer, with Arsene Wenger having registered an interest in the Croatian, according to Talksport, along with Liverpool and Spurs.

Barcelona were also understood to be tracking Lovren, but Arsenal will be inthe market for another defender should Thomas Vermaelen eventually leave for Manchester United.

Despite his father saying on Thursday that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not Borussia Dortmund, France Football claim the Gabon striker is in advanced talks with Chelsea.

Dortmund have signed Ciro Immobile and Adrian Ramos already this summer, but Robert Lewandowski has already left the club. Chelsea are expected to have similar turnover with their strikers, with Diego Costa coming in but Fernando Torres is set to follow Samuel Eto'o out of Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United and Liverpool are set to battle it out for Andre Ayew.

The 24-year-old, who is entering the final year of his contract at Marseille, has previously revealed a "real preference for England" and will now make a decision over his future after Ghana exited the World Cup.

Ayew, who stands at 5ft 8in-tall (great head for a small man), can play as a winger or up front.
