Liverpool are being linked with a string of new signings with just a day until the start of the new season.

The club have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Oussama Assaidi, whilst Tottenham defensive duo Michael Dawson and Steven Caulker are both being linked with Anfield.

Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin might be going to Arsenal instead of Merseyside though, with the Gunners said to be back in for the Turkish international as Alex Song prepares to leave for Barcelona.

Robin Van Persie underwent a medical ahead of his move to Old Trafford last night, but striker Dimitar Berbatov could be on his way out as Zenit St. Petersburg join the chase for the striker.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is eager to make some additions before the start of the season, and Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles is now a target, along with Hugo Lloris and Joao Moutinho.

Scott Sinclair seems the most likely Manchester City addition before the close of the window on August 31st, with the Swansea City starlet rejecting a new deal at the Liberty Stadium. Daniele De Rossi has also been linked.

Cesare Azpilicueta is set to be announced as a Chelsea player before the opening game of the season on Sunday at Wigan, although the Victor Moses move appears to have stalled.

And finally, Southampton appear to be the unlikely winners of the race for Gaston Ramirez, beating Tottenham and Liverpool to the highly-rated Uruguayan.
