Renowned for his energetic, all-action style of play, Besic impressed during three outings at the World Cup. Germany-born, Besic started his professional career at Hamburg before transferring to Ferencvaros in 2012.
Chambers completes medical at Arsenal
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he is prepared to take a "gamble" by signing teenage defender Calum Chambers from Southampton. The 19-year-old full-back, who has only made 18 Premier League starts, has reportedly agreed personal terms to join the Gunners and has completed a medical, with the move expected to be announced on today. The compensation heading back to Southampton is estimated to be around €20m.
Liverpool complete Lovren signing
Liverpool have announced the signing of defender Dejan Lovren, 25, from Southampton on a long-term contract. The Croatia international penned his deal on Sunday to become the third Southampton player to move to Merseyside this summer following striker Rickie Lambert and midfielder Adam Lallana. Although no transfer fee was announced by either club, Southampton confirmed it was a "significant fee" with reports putting the figure at €25m for the centre-back, who played all three of Croatia's matches at this summer's World Cup.
Liverpool pull out of Remy deal
Liverpool have pulled out of a deal to sign Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers. The 27-year-old had joined up with the Reds in Boston on their pre-season tour of the United States after the two clubs agreed an €10m deal. But problems detected during medical examinations have concerned the Merseysiders and they have backed away from the transfer.
Remy's move from Nice to Marseille in 2010 was held up due to heart complaints, but he was later cleared to play following second tests carried out by specialists. He joined QPR seemingly without issue three years later, and spent last season on loan with Newcastle United.
Nice confirm Ospina move to Arsenal
Nice head coach Claude Puel has confirmed that David Ospina, 25, has completed his move to Arsenal. The Colombia international goalkeeper impressed at the World Cup in Brazil and it is expected the Gunners will announce the €3.8m capture imminently. Arsene Wenger has already revealed Ospina will start the season as back-up to Wojciech Szczesny but the pair will compete for the No 1 jersey as the campaign progresses.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the Ligue 1 boss said: "It is confirmed for me that he is going, yes. He's good with his feet and his hands. He knows the game very well and is a very good player. It's a good deal for Arsenal."
Sunderland sign Patrick van Aanholt
Sunderland have signed defender Patrick van Aanholt from Chelsea on a four-year contract. The 23-year-old joined Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven in 2007 but has spent the majority of his time with the club out on loan, playing for sides including Newcastle, Wigan and Vitesse Arnhem.
Campbell Joins Palace
Crystal Palace have announced the signing of striker Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff. The 26-year-old has joined for an undisclosed fee, putting pen to paper on a three-year deal. Campbell, who came through the youth ranks at Manchester United at the start of his career, won the solitary senior England cap in 2012. He arrives at Palace having netted 16 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions for the Bluebirds.
Chelsea bring back Didier Drogba
Chelsea have confirmed the return of striker Didier Drogba, 36, on a one year deal. The Ivorian last played for Chelsea in 2012, scoring the decisive penalty in the Champions League final. Drogba went on to play in China and then Turkish side Galatasaray. He said: "It was an easy decision - I couldn't turn down the opportunity to work with Jose again. Everyone knows the special relationship I have with this club and it has always felt like home to me. My desire to win is still the same and I look forward to the opportunity to help this team."
Manager Jose Mourinho was delighted to see the striker return to west London: "He's coming because he's one of the best strikers in Europe. I know his personality very well and I know if he comes back he's not protected by history or what he's done for this club previously. He is coming with the mentality to make more history."
Liverpool agree €25m deal for Lovren
Liverpool have agreed a €25m deal with Southampton for defender Dejan Lovren. Following recent negotiations a fee has finally been agreed and Lovren is scheduled to have a medical in Liverpool on Saturday. The Croatian international has been Rodgers' top centre-back target of the summer and declared his determination to make the move. Lovren will be the third Southampton player to swap the South Coast for the North West this summer, following in the footsteps of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.
Swansea complete Montero signing
Swansea City have completed their sixth signing of the summer with the arrival of Ecuador international Jefferson Montero. The 24-year-old has penned a four-year deal following his move from Mexican side Monarcas Morelia for an undisclosed fee. The right-footed winger started all three group fixtures for his country in this summer's World Cup.
Montero follows the acquisitions of Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis, Middlesbrough's Marvin Emnes and Stephen Kingsley from Falkirk.
Tottenham sign Vorm, Davies
Tottenham have made a double swoop on Premier League rivals Swansea, signing left-back Ben Davies and Dutch international goalkeeper Michel Vorm. Davies has signed a five-year contract and Vorm has agreed a four-year deal, while Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson moves to the Welsh club where he spent time on loan in 2012.
Davies, 21, earned his first professional contract with Swansea in 2011 and has gone on to earn 10 caps for Wales. He played 91 times for the Swans. Vorm moved to the Liberty Stadium in August 2011 and firmly established himself as first choice in their debut season in the Premier League. In total, he made 97 appearances for Swansea and was also part of the Netherlands' World Cup squad this summer in Brazil.
Manquillo to sign two-year loan deal with Liverpool
According to reports, Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign Atletico Madrid defender Javier Manquillo. Spanish newspaper Marca claim that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has agreed a two-year loan deal for the 20-year-old defender. They also claim that the Reds will have the option to buy the Spaniard for €6m at the end of his loan spell.
