Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is set to bring in striking competition for Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado in the form of Roma’s 23-year-old Italian forward Mattia Destro.
Deal or No Deal? Soldado’s nightmare season last time out was well-documented whilst Adebayor’s temperament is never the most solid thing in the world, so a move for Destro would make sense. Deal!

Tabloid Gossip I
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has vowed to wait right up to transfer deadline day in his bid to bring a big-name forward to Anfield, with both Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani targeted.
Deal or No Deal? Liverpool’s hunt for a forward has been one of the headline acts of this window ever since Luis Suarez left, but bringing in the likes of Falcao or Cavani has to be considered unlikely. No deal.

Tabloid Gossip II
Real Madrid have reduced their asking price for German midfielder Sami Khedira in a bid to get Arsenal back to the negotiating table.
Deal or No Deal? This one has rumbled on for a while now, and you have to suspect that Arsene Wenger will be wary of spending more money after already splashing the cash this summer. No deal.

Former Chelsea, Arsenal, Portsmouth and Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra is a target for Queens Park Rangers, although the Frenchman will have to take a pay cut to move to Loftus Road from Lokomotiv Moscow.
Deal or No Deal? A move for the big-money Diarra would evoke memories of some of QPR’s mistaken purchases the last time they were in the Premier League, so perhaps they are better off avoiding this one. No deal.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Chelsea winger Victor Moses has joined Stoke City on a season-long loan deal, a year after making a similar move to Liverpool.
Will he be a success? Liverpool’s title challenge last season really came in spite of Moses rather than because of him, and the Nigerian really needs this move to work out in order to kickstart a stalled career.
