Transfer News Today: Arsenal Set To Move For Ex-Real Madrid Man


This Way Jose?

Arsenal are stepping up their interest in Napoli’s attacking midfielder Jose Callejon, who is looking to leave the Serie A club following the departure of manager Rafael Benitez.

Clever move? It would be. Arsenal are already well-stocked in the department but you can never have too many good players.

Vote For Pedro

Jose Mourinho wants to sign Barcelona forward Pedro as he bids to increase his attacking options at the Premier League champions.

Will he move? Well he keeps stating that he’s happy in Catalonia but he’s behind Messi, Suarez and Neymar in the Barca pecking order, so a move would do him good.

A Clasie Schneiderlin Replacement?

With Morgan Schneiderlin set for a move to Manchester United imminently, Southampton have targeted the Dutch international midfielder Jordy Clasie as his replacement.

Good player? A Clasie one, if you excuse the pun. The Dutch international would be a good signing for the Saints as they look to continue their upward curve.

Saints are 15.00 to finish in the top four in 2015/16

 

Spanish Spur

Tottenham are believed to be close to tying up a deal for Spanish international forward Fernando Llorente, who will move from Juventus for around £12m.

Not another Soldado? They’ll hope not, but at least Llorente has picked up experience outside of Spain and has scored goals wherever he’s been.

Spurs are 7.50 for a top four finish

 

No Reds Russian

Liverpool are unlikely to follow up their initial interest in Real Madrid’s Russian winger Denis Cheryshev, who was rumoured to have a £22m price tag.

Not even with all that Sterling money? Most of that still looks earmarked for Christian Benteke, but a surprise move could still be on the cards for the Reds, who need a forward.
