Athletic Bilbao

Bilbao have lost Ander Herrera to Manchester United this summer, with the Spaniard signing a long-term deal with the Premier League outfit.

However, fellow Spanish talent Iker Muniain will reportedly sign a new deal in the coming days.

Bilbao have been linked with a move for Arsenal's Mikel Arteta as a replacement for Herrera, but thus far such talk has been denied by the midfielder's agent.

French centre-back Aymeric Laporte is widely regarded as one of the best young defenders in European football and has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona, but the player's release clause has recently been increased to £34m.

In terms of outgoings, Gaizka Toquero has been strongly linked with a loan move to Elche.

Atletico Madrid

Chelsea confirmed on Tuesday that they had reached an agreement with Atletico over the transfer of Diego Costa after meeting the 25-year-old's buyout clause.

Talk of Filipe Luis following Costa has also gathered pace, while Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has recently revealed that Thibaut Courtois will return to his parent club following the World Cup.

Javi Manquillo, meanwhile, has been linked with a loan move to Getafe, but Jose Gimenez is expected to sign a new long-term deal to divert reported interest from Manchester United.

Ruben Perez is reportedly heading for Torino, while Adrian Lopez has been linked with Valencia.

Mario Suarez is expected to stay despite reported interest, but Atletico have sanctioned the permanent sale of Sergio Asenjo to Villarreal.

Xavi's future also remains uncertain, but Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has claimed that the veteran could yet remain at the Camp Nou.

Zubizarreta has confirmed, however, that the club have received offers for Chilean international Alexis Sanchez.

Barca have reportedly ended their interest in Porto's Eliaquim Mangala, meanwhile, but are confident of securing a deal for Valencia's Jeremy Mathieu.

Nolito has been linked with a surprise return to the Camp Nou.

Barcelona B defender Sergi Gomez, meanwhile, has joined Celta on a three-year deal.

Sergi Gomez has also joined from Barcelona B, while Pablo Hernandez has moved from O'Higgins.

In terms of incomings, Deportivo have been linked with a move for Real Valladolid defender Antonio Rukavina, but talk of a move has cooled over the last week or so.

Experienced defender Manuel Pablo, who has made 438 appearances for Deportivo since joining from Las Palmas in 1998, is expected to remain with the club for at least one more season, however, after reportedly signing a new one-year deal.

PAOK winger Lucas Perez has also been linked with the club, as has Barcelona winger Isaac Cuenca.

Deportivo are also believed to be in the market for Wolfsburg's Ibrahim Sissoko, but wage demands have stopped Jose Carlos joining on a free transfer.

Carlos Sanchez's performances in Colombia's World Cup campaign, meanwhile, have reportedly attracted a host of interest, with the midfielder available for as little as £4m.

In terms of incomings, the latest name in the picture is 20-year-old Iraqi international Ali Adnan, who is currently contracted to Turkish side Caykur Rizespor.

Levante

New boss Jose Luis Mendilibar's toughest task this summer will be to fight off interest in Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who is now regarded as one of the best stoppers in European football.

A brilliant performance in Costa Rica's sensational World Cup campaign has not made his task any easier, with a number of clubs monitoring proceedings.

Transfer business has already been completed, however, with Jaime Gavilan joining from Getafe on an initial one-year deal.

However, it has also been claimed that Ander Bardaji will be given the chance to step into the Sociedad first team next season.

Carlos Vela, meanwhile, who had reportedly attracted interest from former club Arsenal, has signed a new four-year deal with the club, with Sociedad purchasing the Mexican's full rights.

Spanish international Alberto Moreno, who is a target for Liverpool, now looks likely to remain at the Estadio Ramon, however, with talks reportedly breaking down.
