Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for the Premier League on Saturday, September 19.

Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Saturday, September 19.

Saturday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'agree five-year deal for Alex Telles'

Manchester United have reportedly emerged as favourites to complete a deal for Porto defender Alex Telles.

While the left-back has established himself as one of his current team's star men, less than 12 months remain on his contract.

That has inevitably led to interest in his signature, including from United, who have seemingly missed out on the signing of Real Madrid's Sergio Reguilon.

According to RMC Sport, the 27-year-old has agreed to pen a contract at Old Trafford until the end of the 2024-25 campaign.

Although United are yet to reach a compromise over a fee with Porto, it has been suggested that Telles could cost in the region of £25m.

The Brazilian appears in line to feature ahead of Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams in the pecking order.

Liverpool 'keen to complete deal for Ozan Kabak'

Liverpool are reportedly targeting a move for Schalke 04 centre-back Ozan Kabak.

The Reds secured a deal for Bayern Munich's Thiago Alcantara on Friday and are believed to be on the verge of signing Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jurgen Klopp's side are yet to replace Dejan Lovren, though, and according to Transfermarkt, the Premier League champions want to sign Kabak before the end of the summer transfer window.

The report claims that Sevilla's Diego Carlos has also emerged as an option, but Kabak is higher on the club's list as he would be more affordable in the current market.

The 20-year-old featured on 28 occasions for the Royal Blues during the 2019-20 campaign, including 26 outings in the Bundesliga, where he contributed three goals and one assist.

Manchester City, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund have also previously been linked with the Turkey international, who only joined Schalke from Stuttgart on a five-year deal last summer.
