Lille had a $10 million offer accepted for West Ham United and Manchester United target Kevin Malcuit. Elsewhere, Turkish giants Fenerbahçe have denied reports that Liverpool and Arsenal target Simon Kjaer is on the verge of finalizing a move to AC Milan. In England, the Tottenham Hotspur are willing to splash out $20 million on young Venezuelan midfielder Yeferson Soteldo.

Here's a complete report of the latest transfer updates Making The Rounds.

Malcuit set to join Lille

According to Footballs First, Saint Etienne have finally accepted the bid for Malcuit after weeks of negotiations with their fellow Ligue 1 outfit Lille. Certainly, it will come as bad news to the EPL clubs, who have both been extensively linked with the defender over the past months.

However, Kevin Malcuit looks set to stay in France. After agreeing to a five year contract at Lille, he will now undergo medical treatment before the move is finalized.

Fenerbahçe quashed rumors linking Kjaer with AC Milan

Simon Kjaer has set his heart on a move to AC Milan and was ready to snub interests from the EPL. However, despite reports claiming that a $13.5m fee had been agreed in principle with AC Milan, Fenerbahçe have quickly “quashed” those rumors.

An Official Fenerbahçe F.K statement reads, “The article published today in both the Aksam and Fanatik newspapers claiming that we've struck a €12million ($13.5 million USD) deal with AC Milan are completely false.

So far we've not received such a bid. We want to urge these reporters and newspapers not to share fake news and be more accurate and responsible enough in leading the public.”

The news will certainly come as a “boost” to both Liverpool and Arsenal who've been targeting the center back. Fenerbahçe are apparently demanding $22.6 million for their star defender who has another two-years remaining on his deal.

Tottenham willing to sign Soteldo next summer

According to 90 min, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to swoop for the “pocket sized” 20-year-old midfielder next summer after another season in South America. The reports also suggests that fellow EPL club Watford FC are also keen on a deal to lure the youngster to England.

Able to operate as an attacking midfielder or a winger on either flank, Yeferson Soteldo is currently playing for Chilean Campeonato Nacional side CD Huachipato after securing a move from Zamora FC in January 2017.

Soteldo is yet to get off the mark for CD Huachipato in eight appearances, but he did score twenty-one goals in eighty-four appearances for Zamora FC.
