The 26-year-old's representatives have approached the Emirates Stadium outfit over a temporary move, but Liverpool have no interest in letting him leave
Daniel Sturridge has been offered to Arsenal by his representatives on loan, but Liverpool remain adamant that their frustrated striker is not going anywhere, Goal understands.
The 26-year-old, a boyhood Arsenal fan, has cut a disappointed figure at Anfield in recent weeks due to a lack of game time and Jurgen Klopp's failure to play him in his preferred central position.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is open to adding players to his squad if they are 'world class', with Sturridge put in that bracket after scoring 13 goals in 25 games last season, despite struggling with various fitness issues.
Nizaar Kinsella
The Brazil international defender has passed his medical in London to return to Stamford Bridge only two years after leaving the club for the French champions
Chelsea have completed the signing of Brazil international David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain for £38 million (€45m).
The 29-year-old returns to Stamford Bridge just two years after leaving Chelsea, who opened talks with their ex-player on Tuesday.
Luiz has signed a contract and completed a medical according to sources close to Goal but details have yet to emerge over the length of the deal.

PSG have decided not to sign a replacement for Luiz despite only having three recognised centre-backs in Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe, with Serge Aurier capable of deputising.

Yah, he's staying at Southampton, that died out a bit earlier this week.

[31/08, 6:37 p.m.] THE BATTLE FOR SISSOKO

Here's Vinny O'Connor to bring us up to date with that Moussa Sissokotwist - and it seems there was quite a turn of events.

"Shortly before 7pm Everton thought they'd agreed a fee with Newcastle and terms with the player himself. But I'm hearing they then couldn't get hold of the player for a couple of hours - and that he didn't pick up Ronald Koeman's call.

"The medical room was set up, the contracts were drawn up. Then, they heard from Sissoko's representatives that he didn't want to join them. Major disappointment for Everton - but there's also the feeling they might have had a lucky escape"
[31/08, 6:38 p.m.] SUNDERLAND NOT DONE YET

Sunderland are not yet done for the day despite bringing in two new faces, according to Keith Downie on Sky Sports News HQ.

"Sunderland have completed their second signing of the day, this one for Jason Denayer," said Downie. "He arrived at the Academy of Light around an hour ago to finish off the paperwork and complete that deal after they agreed personal terms with him and the deal with Manchester City.

"He becomes their second signing of the day after Didi Ndong. But the day started with Sunderland looking for four, they are not finished yet. Sunderland could yet still add in the dying embers of this transfer window... so watch this space."
[31/08, 6:41 p.m.] Lazar Markovic has joined @sporting_cpon a season-long loan deal:
[31/08, 6:52 p.m.] Last minute rush
[31/08, 6:52 p.m.] Everton have completed the signing of Enner Valencia on a season-long loan from West Ham, according to Sky sources.

[31/08, 6:53 p.m.] BARNSLEY LOAN JANKO

The winger, 20, can also play at right back.
[31/08, 6:54 p.m.] HULL EYE TWO MORE

Tim Thornton is reporting on Sky Sports News HQ that Hull are still looking to get two more deals done before the deadline this evening.

"Hull are still looking to get two more deals done before the deadline so it could be a real race against the clock here," he said. "They're looking at a striker and a midfielder as well."
[31/08, 6:55 p.m.] Juan Cuadrado has sealed a three-year loan move from Chelsea to Juventus
Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado has joined Juventus on a three-year loan deal until 2019, the Italian club have confirmed.
Cuadrado, who spent last year on loan in Turin, will now spend the next three seasons in Italy on a contract heavily based on incentives.
The loan deal involves a fee of €5m (£4.2m) and includes the option to purchase Cuadrado permanently for €25m (£21.2) should certain appearances and results be met during the loan period of three years.
[31/08, 6:55 p.m.] Manchester United


Here's to a successful season-long loan for goalkeeper @ElgatoPereira1. Joel's joining Belenenses in Portugal. #MUFC

[31/08, 6:59 p.m.] VELDWIJK LEAVES FOREST

Lars Veldwijk has left Nottingham Forest for Belgian side KV Kortrijk on a permanent deal.

The Dutch striker played 14 times in the 2014/15 season before spending last term on loan at Zwolle.

West Ham and Diego Poyet have mutually agreed to terminate the midfielder's contract.

The 21-year-old departs the Hammers having made 10 appearances in all competitions in his two years in east London.
[31/08, 7:02 p.m.] The Club and @diegopoyet7 have mutually agreed to terminate the midfielder's contract
[31/08, 7:04 p.m.] Luiz to Chelsea is a good move. Had a poor world cup, but overall a good player and really strngthens our backline. Maybe without him we can finally beat PSG.....whenever we play Champs league again...
[31/08, 7:05 p.m.] Here’s that confirmation. Sissoko’s phone wasn’t working earlier, when Ronald Koeman was trying to get in touch to welcome him to Everton, but now he’s tweeting like billyo.
[31/08, 7:07 p.m.] The transfer window has shut

We eagerly awaited confirmation of several moves - notably Sissoko to Spurs -, and perhaps even some late surprises.

Everton have consoled themselves by borrowing Enner Valencia from West Ham.

But most of all, *we want to go to bed. Good night*
