Follow the latest updates live from the transfer window on Thursday as Manchester United’s pursuit of Jadon Sancho continues and another winger leaves the Old Trafford club. After United’s second-leg Europa League victory over LASK on Wednesday night, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Alexis Sanchez’s permanent move to Inter Milan, where the Chile international has spent the season’s on loan.

Elsewhere, Arsenal are pushing on in trying to secure deals for Philippe Coutinho and Willian, despite having announced 55 staff redundancies on Wednesday. The Gunners have reportedly seen Willian agree to a three-year contract – something he wanted from Chelsea that the Blues were not prepared to give while they remain in talks for Philippe Coutinho.

Meanwhile, Man City are not done in the market yet. Pep Guardiola’s club announced the signings of Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres this week, but they have a spending spree planned as they look to further strengthen their squad and regain the Premier League title next season. Eric Garcia won’t be part of it however, having turned down a new contract at the Etihad. Follow all of the latest news and rumours below:
