  • Would Mohamed Salah ‘do the dirty’ on Liverpool by leaving? And what about Man United ‘diving’?: Listen to It’s All Kicking Off, Mail Sport’s new podcast

Premier League clubs have just four days left to push through any last-gasp deals in the transfer window, with managers still keen to bolster their squads ahead of Friday’s deadline.

Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool remains a major talking point ahead of deadline day, with the Egyptian reportedly eager to leave Anfield in a bid to join Saudi Pro League giants Al-Ittihad.

Although the Saudi Arabia deadline is not until September 20, Liverpool have less than a week to find a replacement should they plan to sanction Salah’s lucrative move to the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Matheus Nunes has gone on strike at Wolves in an effort to force through a move to champions Manchester City, and Chelsea have finally organised an exit for ostracised Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku, who is set to join Roma on loan for a £5million fee.

Mail Sport takes a look at all the latest transfer gossip on Tuesday morning.
