Tottenham are set to complete the signing of Moussa Dembele from Fulham after a reported bid of £15 million was accepted by the Cottagers.
Manchester United were also linked to the midfielder earlier this summer but Spurs seem to have beaten them to the signing of the Belgian.
Fulham manager Martin Jol has confirmed the bid by Spurs, with only a medical and personal terms needed to be agreed upon before the move is finalised.
Spurs also seem to be on the verge of signing Hugo Lloris, with the Guardian claiming that a £13 million had been accepted by Lyon. Personal terms need to be agreed however, followed by a medical.
Scott Sinclair’s move to Manchester City has been thrown into doubt with Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins claiming that City were dithering on the deal. He said to the press, “If they really wanted to sign Scott they would have dealt with it a bit better than they have, but that’s their business.”
News that Theo Walcott’s contract talks with Arsenal have broken down might well might have led City to delay their pursuit of Sinclair presently, with the Arsenal winger, who would definitely be an upgrade on Sinclair, valued at just around £12-15 million considering he has only a year left on his contract.
Swansea have already identified Valencia’s Pablo Hernandez as Sinclair’s replacement but would be more than happy to keep hold of the English U-21 international.
Porto have set interested clubs a 24-hour deadline in which to bid for in-demand striker Hulk.
Chelsea, Tottenham and Zenit St. Petersburg are all interested in the Brazilian but only the Russian club are prepared to meet Porto’s asking price of £40 million.
But the striker himself reportedly wants a move to Tottenham, where he would link up once again with ex-Porto coach Andre Villas Boas.
But even with the cash from Luka Modric’s sale to Real Madrid, it seems extremely unlikely that the striker will be going to Spurs any time soon.
The Daily Mail has claimed that Didier Drogba And Nicolas Anelka could be set for a sensational return to England after reports that their club, Shanghai Shenua, has run into financial troubles.
A share-holders’ battle for the club has restricted funding, which would affect the two ex-Chelsea stars the most considering their £190,000+ weekly wages.
The paper claims that the two would have no shortage of interested clubs in England, but it seems extremely unlikely any Premier League club would pay such insane wages for the ageing strikers.
