Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Sunday, August 23.

Sunday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:

Chelsea hold talks with Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy?

Chelsea are allegedly contemplating a bid for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

With Kepa Arrizabalaga having failed to impress at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are looking for a replacement for the Spaniard, either on a short or long-term basis.

While Burnley's Nick Pope and Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak have been linked with a switch to West London, it appears that Frank Lampard is considering other options.

According to highly-regarded Twitter account @ExWHUemployee, discussions have recently been held with Rennes stopper Mendy.

In his first season at the French outfit, the Senegalese made 28 appearances in all competitions, helping his new club qualify for the Champions League through their Ligue 1 position.

Although the 28-year-old has a contract until 2023, the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic may lead to Rennes cashing in on Mendy for the right price.

Arsenal 'complete deal for Gabriel Magalhaes'

Arsenal have reportedly won the battle for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, with the Brazilian set to fly to London next week to officially complete a move.

The 22-year-old's future has been the subject of much speculation in recent days amid suggestions that Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City had all joined the Gunners in the race.

However, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the deal to take Gabriel to the Emirates Stadium 'is finally done', and he will head to London on Monday to sign a five-year contract with Mikel Arteta's side.

Taking to Twitter to reveal the news, Romano claims that the Premier League giants will pay €30m (£27m), including add-ons, for the South American, with an official announcement due to arrive next week.

Gabriel made 34 appearances for his Ligue 1 side last term, including six outings in the Champions League.

Arsenal have also recently completed the signing of Brazilian attacker Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea as the club prepare for the start of the 2020-21 Premier League season.
