TRANSFER NEWS LIVE: Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd rumours and gossip ahead of the summer window.

- Manchester United plotting £50m raid on Fulham for Ryan Sessegnon

- Chelsea face paying £80m to sign Everton forward Richarlison

Tottenham`s Rabiot fear

Tottenham are worried their major transfer target Adrien Rabiot will be snatched from their grasp by Liverpool or Barcelona in a summer dogfight.

Spurs were heavily into a deal to land the Paris Saint-Germain star in a £20m move last month.

But before the transfer could be sealed, Rabiot`s father Michel died a few days before the January window closed.

And the family decided to put business on hold as a mark of respect with his mother and agent, Veronique, declaring that nothing would be done until the summer.

He has no future at PSG after being suspended because he refused to sign a new contract and the only way is out of Paris.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a huge fan of the midfielder and would love to have some more options in North London.

But both Barcelona and Liverpool have already shown huge interest in the French international and Arsenal, too, would love to join the queue to grab Rabiot - who worked with boss Unai Emery in France.

Man Utd plot £50m Sessegnon raid

Manchester United are ready to pay £50m for Fulham`s wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon, according to the Daily Express.

The 18-year-old is reportedly stalling on a contract extension at Craven Cottage, alerting Old Trafford bosses.

Sessegnon played a key role in Fulham`s promotion last season but could be reluctant to stay if they drop back into the Championship.

Despite being one of the Whites` key players, Claudio Ranieri has handed him limited playing tine.

£80m Richarlison to Chelsea?

Starsport understands Chelsea are keen admirers of Everton forward Richarlison.

AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid are also watching the Brazilian star.

Richarlison has scored 10 times in 23 league outings for the Toffees since joining from Watford for £40m last summer.

Everton bracing themselves for a fierce battle to retain the 21-year-old - and they will demand double what they paid.

£40m Arsenal problem

Unai Emery wants to solve Arsenal`s defensive problems by signing Mainz ace Jean-Philippe Gbamin.

Arsenal attempted to sign Gbamin last summer but their bid for the 23-year-old failed.

According to the Daily Express, Emery will go back in for Gbamin when the summer window opens.

Mainz want £40m, however, which is £5m short of Arsenal`s total transfer budget.
