Latest football transfer news and rumours Tuesday 28th August
A round up of the latest transfer talk from the English football premier league.
Latest press talk
As suggested yesterday TOTTENHAM are looking likely to be big spenders in the last few days of the transfer window leading up to Friday's 11pm closure. Yet to give up on Brazilian WILLIAN, they are also close to signing French shot stopper HUGO LLORIS with connections also with highly sought after midfielder YANN M'VILLA.
Controversial talk from MAN UTD suggesting they may be ready to cash in on WAYNE ROONEY although apparently the big guns of europe, including REAL MADRID and BARCELONA are not interested in his services. This could mean the only team really likely to afford him are MAN CITY as United would want c£50m for him.
ASTON VILLA have had a bid for GENK striker CHRISTIAN BENTEKE, who has netted 3 times in 5 games so far this season, turned down. But it would appear the player has now gone on strike to try and enforce the move to VILLA PARK.
JOEY BARTON's proposed move to France with MARSEILLES looks to have broken down.
MAN CITY looking to sign big names DANIELE DE ROSSI and JAVI MARTINEZ before the window close.
Possibilities of DANIEL STURRIDGE departing CHELSEA with a number of teams interested my be put off by the £25m price tag slapped on him by the Blues.
CHELSEA and ARSENAL are going head to head for the signature of MONTPELIER defender MAPOU YANGA-MBIWA.
FULHAM current favourites to sign SUNDERLAND winger KIERON RICHARDSON.
ARSENAL striker NIKLAS BENDTNER's likely destination could be AC MILAN after they made an enquiry about the Dane.
Rumours, chatterings and whispers.
Still rumoured to be making moves for CABAYE and TIOTE, ARSENAL also now linked with FULHAM's attacking midfielder DEMBELE. I think it would fit in quite well there.
A real bolt of the blue out of the Blues of CHELSEA is whispers of DAVID LUIZ being on his way to BARCELONA!!
Coming in though could be £35m rated striker EDINSON CAVANI.
SWANSEA allegedly to complete triple signings of MARVIN EMNES, PABLO HERNANDEZ and ASHLEY WESTWOOD.
DIMITAR BERBATOV's future still in the balance but lately TOTTENHAM potentially to re-sign him for £7m.
LIVERPOOL could be after Dutch striker KLASS VAN HUNTELAAR possibly leaving the way open for ANDY CARROLL to return to NEWCASTLE.
More tomorrow folks!!
