Aurelio DeLaurentiis, President of Napoli, has Tweeted out his official welcome to Michu who arrives in Italy after two uneven years at Swansea City.

The Spanish attacking midfielder's first season was hailed as one of the best bang-for-the-buck seasons in recent Premier League memory as the Swans got 18 goals in 35 PL appearances for a negligible transfer fee. Things went in the opposite direction last season as injury wrecked his sophomore season for the Swans and limited him to 2 goals in 17 appearances. The deal is reportedly an initial loan with an £8million payment in a year. Not ideal, but given how little he produced last season both clubs were always going to have to take some risk if a move were going to happen.

Leicester city has officially announced the signing of left-back Ben Chilwell to a new five-year contract through 2021.

The 19-year-old was expected to go to Liverpool this summer after the club made multiple bids, including a deal potentially woth £7 million after add-ons. Arsenal was also linked with a move for the left-back but Chilwell opted to fight for a first-team spot with the Premier League champions despite not seeing much time last season. Said manager Claudio Ranieri: It’s fantastic news for us. Ben is a player with a big future and I am very happy that future will be with Leicester City. Ever since I arrived in Leicester, Ben has been a young player that has shown a lot of promise. He has all the attributes you would want in a defender and shows a lot of maturity for a player of just 19."

Watford has confirmed the sale of both defender Daniel Pudil and winger Almen Abdi to Sheffield Wednesday.

The move makes sense for Pudil after the Czech Republic international spent much of last season on loan at the Championship side. The center-back made 108 appearances in all competitions during his time at Vicarage Road before last year's loan. But Abdi leaves the club after scoring 25 goals in 130 appearances in all competitions over the course of four years. Last season the Swiss international was a regular starter in the Premier League but looks to have fallen out of favor under new coach Walter Mazzarri.

Sunderland made it four wins on the spin against Dijon on Wednesday, but the victory came at a cost after a muscular problem forced Patrick van Aanholt off early in the second half.

Robbie Stockdale confirmed van Aanholt "felt some groin tightness" although based on initial reports, his withdrawal appears to be precautionary: "There is absolutely no major issues," revealed the first team coach. "Whether we risk him on Saturday will depend on how he settles down over the next couple of days." Jermain Defoe is certain to miss out though, with the striker a doubt for the remainder of the preseason programme after suffering a thigh strain in training. However, and despite ongoing tests, the club remain confident he will be ready to face Manchester City in game week one. "At the moment it’s probably too early to say and we don’t think it’s anything serious, but obviously with a player like Jermain you don’t to take any risks."

Gary Cahill grabbed the only goal in a hard fought International Champions Cup game in Pasadena as Chelsea beat Liverpool 1-0 at the Rose Bowl.

However, speaking post-match, Jürgen Klopp revealed his "biggest problem" was the loss of young Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic following a sickening clash of heads with Chelsea’s Bertrand Traore. "He is in hospital, because he can't remember anything. That's not too cool. Hopefully it's not too serious but of course a young boy in this situation is not too cool." Daniel Sturridge missed the defeat, instead, club physios decided to provide additional fitness work at the clubs’ training camp in Palo Alto while Nathaniel Clyne was not risked because of a minor hamstring problem. Both players could face Milan on Sunday but Belgium international strikers Divock Origi and Christian Benteke are not yet ready following their summer exertions at Euro 2016.

After a few actions by Mamadou Sakho that Jurgen Klopp deemed to show a "lack of respect", the Liverpool manager sent the defender home early from the club's preseason tour of the United States.

It has been a series of unfortunate events for Sakho in recent months, but while he was cleared from a doping violation and cannot be blamed for injuring his heel, there is no one to fault but the Frenchman for his behavior since the club embarked on their preseason tour. First, he missed the flight to the US, then he was AWOL from a training session and then was late for a meal with his teammates. Klopp was quoted as saying that the situation was "not that serious" and that he hasn't given up on Sakho. However, one has to think this only takes a serious hit to his status in the center back depth chart. Had the summer been free of incident, despite the additions of Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan, Sakho looked poised to be the Week 1 starter in partnership with Dejan Lovren. Now, it could easily be one of Matip or Klavan to take the spot away.

Bournemouth has completed the signing of yet another Liverpool player this summer in defender Brad Smith.

The 22-year-old left-back joins the Cherries on a four-year contract in a move reported to be in the £6 million range. The Australian international had one year left on his contract but had previously fallen out of favor at the club following the appointment of Jurgen Klopp. Smith follows fellow academy product Jordon Ibe to to south coast after the winger competed a £15 million move. Said chief executive Neill Blake said, "I am delighted to confirm that we have completed a deal to bring Brad to the football club. "Brad broke through at Anfield last season and impressed whenever he was called upon."

Harry Maguire is being pursued by Middlesbrough, who have made a £4m bid.

Maguire is a young prospect who plays for the England U21 team and started 25 games for Hull City last season. He is likely going to make it to the Premier League sooner rather than later even if the move to Middlesbrough doesn't work. He would be a likely started if he made the move now.

Virgil Van Dijk played well and scored in Southampton's 2-1 win over FC Twente.

There were rumors sending Van Dijk to other Premier League clubs but he is currently still on Southampton's roster and playing well. He is guaranteed to start, and he will contribute random goals throughout the season like the one he scored today. The other Southampton goal came from Sam Gallagher, who will likely earn a bigger role as a backup for the Saints this season.

Swansea have inquired about Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa.

Ulloa played backup for Jamie Vardy but was very effective off the bench and as a replacement for Vardy when injuries struck late in the season. There are multiple teams inquiring about him, and Swansea need a striker after selling Alberto Paloschi and parting ways with Bafetimbi Gomis. This would be a great fit and Ulloa would be a good late-round pick if he ends up with Swansea.

New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has stated that Nemanja Matic is not for sale.

There have been rumors regarding Matic going to Juventus after Chelsea acquired defensive midfielder N'Golo Kante. However, it seems that Conte is excited to have a choice between the two and that could be a big motivator for Matic. There is a possibility where Chelsea play both together, and move Fabregas to a more advanced position, but either way Matic is not going to be a good fantasy player this season.

Middlesbrough are in talks to acquire American goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Guzan was part of relegated Aston Villa side and has been deemed surplus at Aston Villa. The 31-year-old still has some time left as a starting goalkeeper and would be an upgrade over anyone currently at Middlesbrough. He will be a low-tier fantasy pick if he ends up with the new-comers.
