Real time, real news: Goal.com LIVE! brings you the action as it happens.
If we ever get chance to speak to Wojciech Szczesny, we're getting @mostanley29 to conduct the interview.
Unwanted by Liverpool and, apparently, unwanted by Newcastle. The Daily Star says Steve McClaren has no plans to make a move for Anfield flop Mario Balotelli. He would rather try to get the best out of his current strikers.
Transfer Talk: Newcastle not keen on Balotelli
Speaking of potential Chelsea exits, The Sun claims Stoke are prepared to let £8 million Asmir Begovic leave the club this summer... but they want Victor Moses, Patrick Bamford or Ruben Loftus-Cheek in return if he goes to Stamford Bridge.
Transfer Talk: Stoke demand Chelsea player
*Controversial sub-head alert*. The Daily Mirror reports that Juventus want THREE Chelsea stars this summer. Mohamed Salah and Oscar were already targets but, apparently, the Serie A champions are also keen on Willian.
Transfer Talk: Juventus in for Willian
Arsenal fans, especially @mostanley29, it’s your lucky day - The Sun has released an updated list of deadwools who Arsene Wenger wants to get rid of this summer. It includes: Lukas Podolski, David Ospina, Joel Campbell, Yaya Sanogo, Mathieu Flamini and Carl Jenkinson.
Transfer Talk: Arsenal clearout?
Aaaaah Javier Manquillo. The man who joined Liverpool on a two-year loan this time last season is no longer wanted by Brendan Rodgers, according to ESPN, and the Reds boss is looking to cancel the deal 12 months early. He made just 10 Premier League apperances.
Transfer Talk: Liverpool try to cancel Manquillo loan
Well, buddy, I'm afraid I've got some bad news. Arda Turan tweeted yesterday that he has NOT made a decision on his future and is currently relaxing on holiday. His agent said earlier in the week that we'll know his next club this Friday. What. A. Let. Down.
One day he’s leaving, one day he’s staying. Marca reports today that Sergio Ramos is ADAMANT about his future and has told Real Madrid he wants to join Manchester United. No matter what Real offer, he will not change his mind...
Transfer Talk: Ramos desperate for Man Utd move
After a 13hr 58m loan deal with FC Rest, guess what? We’re back TWO MINUTES EARLY to bring you all the latest transfer news. And you know what, because we’re so kind, we’re gonna break from the norm and give you a rumour right away.
How very exciting. It’s like getting a surprise present on Christmas Eve. The earlier-than-usual rumour we’ve chosen to bring you concerns Seamus Coleman, with the Daily Mirror reporting that Manchester United will offer Jonny Evans in exchange for the Everton right-back.
@GoalUK FC Rest still holding their executive meeting.— #Ramadan (@Iamlatif_GH) July 3, 2015
After thrashing out details with FC Rest's chief executive all day long, we've come to an agreement to get this blog started early tomorrow.
Be sure to check back from the earlier time of 07:58 for all the latest updates from the transfer window. You'd better set your clocks back! See you then.
Danny Hart out.

Before we head off, it’s time for a little recap on some of the day’s biggest rumours. Barcelona are reportedly putting talks with Arda Turan on hold until they have a new president, while Angel Di Maria wants to leave Manchester United.
And here are some you might have missed...
1. Chelsea to sell Oscar for £25m
2. Odegaard set for Getafe loan deal
3. SEVEN clubs in for Baba Rahman
4. Southampton in Alderweireld talks
5. Atletico want Pjanic to replace Arda
So then. Do we reeallly believe that David De Gea is only in Madrid "to have some rest"? I mean, Manchester United begin pre-season in four days! He was greeted at Madrid Barajas International Airport by a fan who shouted "we are waiting for you in Madrid".
No official confirmation from Watford just yet, but Roma have announced that 31-year-old defender Jose Holebas will join the newly promoted Premier League club...
The man whose "dream" Premier League move last summer fell through - he was close to joining QPR - will spend the next five years in France with Nantes...
Don't worry, Manchester United fans, it's not what you think.
"I am fine, I have just come home to have some rest," he told reporters.
Or HAS HE only gone for some rest?
"Goal understands the Serie A side have secured a provisional agreement to sign the Brazil international - whose contract expires at the end of 2015 - in January, but are now working on sealing a deal to bring the player to San Siro this summer.
"Shakhtar, however, are eager to recoup a fee between €6 million and €7m for the 28-year-old if they are to accept losing him during the close-season, while Milan would prefer a much-reduced compensation figure given that Luiz Adriano would be available for free in January 2016."
