Transfer News Today: Spurs to pull off loan striker signing?


Today we take a look at the Italian clubs monitoring a Premier League midfielder, the future of Shinji Kagawa, Tottenham’s hopes of landing a new striker and Chelsea’s pursuit of an international midfielder...



Tabloid Speculation

The Spurs midfielder Sandro is a target for Roma and Inter Milan.

Why it will happen: No one could blame Sandro if he has become disillusioned with life at the North London club.

Why it won’t happen: Tottenham would demand the type of fee that Italian clubs just don’t pay these days.



No Deal

David Moyes has ruled out selling Shinji Kagawa in January.

Why it will happen: Moyes has given Kagawa chances to establish himself and needs to add to his options in January, rather than selling players.

Why it won’t happen: Borussia Dortmund are still big admirers of their former player and a bid could convince United to sell.



Loan Striker

Tottenham are hoping to land Mirko Vucinic on loan from Juventus in January.

Why it will happen: Vucinic is struggling to get regular football at Juve and Franco Baldini has the connections to pull off the deal.

Why it won’t happen: Juventus won’t want to weaken their squad at a time when they are honing in on a third successive Serie A title.



In Talks

The Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin is in talks with Chelsea.

Why it will happen: Chelsea are lacking numbers in central midfield and Guarin would help to solve this problem.

Why it won’t happen: The Blues are not the only Premier League club interested in Guarin and could face competition.
