“Until it becomes official, no, and I think it still has not been finalised,” Garitano, who tried to sign Merino for Leganes when the midfielder was still at Osasuna, replied when asked if Sociedad had completed the signing of Merino on Radio Euskadi .

“He’s someone I’ve know for many years, when we played against Osasuna with Leganes in the Segunda Division.

Liverpool will pay a £200,000 compensation fee to City for the player’s development after Duncan had refused a professional contract a year ago over concerns about progression to the first-team.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Lewandowski could be the answer to Chelsea’s striker woes, with the betting suggesting they’re the most likely Prem side to make a move for the forward.”
