European transfer: Oxlade-Chamberlain to join Liverpool, Spurs sign Argentine Foyth
Liverpool have agreed to sign England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Premier League rivals Arsenal for about 40 million pounds ($52 million), British media reported on Wednesday. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger spoke last week of his desire to keep the 24-year-old Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was also a target for champions Chelsea. But the player had his heart set on a move to Liverpool, who beat Arsenal 4-0 in the league on Sunday, and rebuffed Chelsea's advances. He will become Liverpool's second most expensive signing after Guinea international Naby Keita, who will join the club from next season for 48 million pounds from Germany's RB Leipzig. Oxlade-Chamberlain made more than 130 Premier League appearances for Arsenal since 2011. He can play in central midfield or on either flank and his versatility is one of the reasons Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp was keen to bring him to Anfield. West Brom sign Polish midfielder Krychowiak on loan from PSG West Bromwich Albion have signed midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak on a season-long loan from French Ligue 1 side Paris St Germain, the Premier League club said on Wednesday. The 27-year-old Poland international arrives at the Hawthorns seeking first-team opportunities that will get him back into contention for his national side before the 2018 World Cup in Russia. "I had a lot of propositions from Spain and Italy. But this is a very ambitious club. There's a good atmosphere here," Krychowiak told the club website. (www.wba.co.uk) He joins Kieran Gibbs, Oliver Burke, Gareth Barry, Ahmed Hegazi and Jay Rodriguez as new additions to manager Tony Pulis' squad, with Albion also signing China international striker Zhang Yuning who has started a two-year loan spell at Werder Bremen. Krychowiak, a two-time Europa League winner with Sevilla, has 45 caps with Poland. Juventus sign Germany defender Hoewedes on loan Juventus have signed Germany defender Benedikt Hoewedes on a season-long loan from Schalke 04 with an option to buy him, the Italian champions said on Wednesday. The 29-year-old has spent his entire career at Schalke, making 240 league appearances for the Bundesliga club and becoming their captain in 2011. Hoewedes, who has played 44 times for his country, was in the German side who won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, playing every minute of the team's successful campaign. Juventus, last season's Champions League runners-up, are bidding for their seventh Serie A title in a row. Tottenham sign Argentine defender Foyth Tottenham Hotspur completed their third signing of the transfer window when defender Juan Foyth joined the Premier League club from Argentina's Estudiantes on Wednesday. Spurs said the 19-year-old, reportedly a target for Paris St Germain, had signed a five-year deal. Last week they signed Colombia central defender Davinson Sanchez from Ajax Amsterdam for a club record fee reported to be about 42 million pounds ($54.23 million), and they have also brought in goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga from Southampton. No tansfer fee was disclosed by Tottenham for Foyth, who represented Argentina at the 2017 Under-20 World Cup, but local media said it was eight million pounds ($10.33 million). "This club believes in young players and I'm very happy to be here," Foyth told Spurs' website (www.tottenhamhotspur.com). "I think there's a wonderful project here." Tottenham boasted the best defence in the league last season but have sold England right back Kyle Walker to Manchester City and Austrian stand-in centre back Kevin Wimmer to Stoke City. The north London club are reportedly close to confirming the signing of PSG's right back Serge Aurier. Spurs, runners-up to Chelsea last season, have suffered a disappointing start to the current campaign, picking up four points from the opening three matches. West Brom sign Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs West Bromwich Albion have signed left-back Keiran Gibbs from Premier League rivals Arsenal on a four-year contract, the club announced on Wednesday. The 27-year-old, who has 10 caps for England, made more than 200 appearances for Arsenal over more than a decade at the north London club. No fee was disclosed, but British media reported that Gibbs cost between 5 million and 7 million pounds ($6.5 million-$9 million). "I would like to thank (Arsenal manager) Arsene Wenger for giving me the chance to start my career and fulfil a dream!!" Gibbs said on Twitter. "Now it's time for the next chapter with West Bromwich Albion and I can't wait to get started with the boys." Gibbs is West Brom's sixth signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Oliver Burke, Gareth Barry, Ahmed Hegazi and Jay Rodriguez. The club also signed China international striker Zhang Yuning who has been loaned to Werder Bremen. "I'm delighted to welcome Kieran to the club. We have recruited another quality addition, an England player with bags of experience at Premier League and Champions League level," West Brom chairman John Williams told the club website. (www.wba.co.uk) Dortmund sign defender Toljan, send Passlack to Hoffenheim Borussia Dortmund have signed German youth international Jeremy Toljan on a five-year deal from Hoffenheim as they look to strengthen their backline, the Bundesliga club said on Wednesday. The 23-year-old, a recent under-21 European champion who also won a silver medal with Germany at the 2016 Olympic Games, made his league debut at Hoffenheim in 2013. "Jeremy can slot in on both the left and right of defence," Dortmund sports director Michael Zorc said in a statement. "He was one of the cornerstones of the side that secured the title for Germany at the U21 European Championship this summer. He is a player with great potential." Dortmund, who will compete in the Champions League this season, also extended the contract of 19-year-old defender Felix Passlack until 2021 but have sent him out on a two-year loan deal at Hoffenheim to gain more match practice. Napoli reject PSG offer for goalkeeper Reina Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis said on Wednesday he had rebuffed an offer from Paris Saint-Germain for Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina. "Paris Saint-Germain offered me five million euros ($6 million) plus two million in add-ons. I said to them 'Thanks and goodbye'," De Laurentiis told Sky on the sidelines of the Venice Film Festival. "Pepe Reina has a contract that runs out next season. We respect contracts (at Napoli). Now they're writing to say that they want to talk to me. But about what? We're not here to serve as a sparring partner," he added. Reina, who turns 35 on Thursday, initially joined Napoli from Liverpool on loan in 2013. He moved to Bayern for the 2014-15 season but then returned to Italy on a permanent deal. He has been capped 35 times at international level and was part of Spain's World Cup-winning squad in 2010, as well as the sides that won the European Championship in 2008 and 2012. Reina made a tearful lap of honour at the San Paolo following Napoli's 3-1 victory over Atalanta at the weekend, while PSG are looking to strengthen their goalkeeping options with Alphonse Areola having replaced Kevin Trapp as the club's first-choice number one. PSG defender Aurier closes in on Spurs move Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier is nearing a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur after the Ivorian was granted a work permit, a source close to the player told AFP on Wednesday. The 24-year-old had been strongly linked with a move away from the French capital but a suspended two-month prison sentence he received last year having been found guilty of assault complicated matters surrounding a work permit. Aurier missed PSG's Champions League trip to Arsenal last November as British authorities barred the Ivorian international from entering the United Kingdom after he was convicted for assaulting a police officer. The defender, who can operate at right-back as well as centre-back, is expected to sign a five-year contract with Tottenham in a deal worth 25 million euros ($29.7 million), according to French daily L'Equipe. Aurier would become Tottenham's fourth recruit in the past week following a club-record deal for Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez, goalkeeper Paulo Gazzanigga from Southampton and Argentinian youngster Juan Foyth from Estudiantes earlier on Wednesday. He would replace England full-back Kyle Walker, who was sold to Manchester City for £50 million in July. Aurier has yet to play for PSG this season following the arrival of Brazilian international Dani Alves from Juventus. Australia keeper Langerak joins Spain's Levante Australia goalkeeper Mitch Langerak signed for Spanish side UD Levante on Wednesday, quitting Stuttgart following the arrival of Germany international Ron-Robert Zieler. Langerak, who has made eight appearances for the Socceroos, helped Stuttgart earn promotion back into the Bundesliga last season by winning the second division title. However, he found himself on the bench when coach Hannes Wolf chose new arrival Zieler, a 2014 World Cup winner with Germany who joined from Leicester City, for Stuttgart's first two Bundesliga games this season. The 29-year-old Langerak, who spent five years at Borussia Dortmund until joining Stuttgart in 2015, has signed for Levante until 2019 with the deal reported to cost one million euros ($1.2 million). "Mitch earned his place as one of the cornerstones in our return to the Bundesliga," said Stuttgart director Michael Reschke. "Understandably, he had a problem being comfortable with the role of number two." Langerak has been replaced by Adam Federici in the Australia squad for the upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Japan and Thailand so he could complete the transfer.
