Transfer News Today: Arsenal line up Cazorla


Mere forum chatter

Nicklas Bendtner's impressive performances at Euro 2012 have reportedly caught the eye of Italian giants Milan, who presumably need to replenish their egomaniac quotient after the sale of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Galatasaray are also thought to be in the running for the Dane's signature.

Tabloid speculation

Having dropped down the pecking order at Manchester United, Dimitar Berbatov should be available at a bargain price this summer. Zenit St. Petersburg are the latest club to be linked with the classy striker.

Contact made

Tottenham Hotspur have joined Newcastle and Swansea in the race for former Liverpool paceman Ryan Babel. The Dutchman is said to be desperate to return to the Premier League.

Bid tabled

Arsene Wenger seems to have learnt his lesson after last season's frantic spending spree, instead investing wisely throughout the summer. Spanish international Santi Cazorla looks set to be joining Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud at the Emirates, after Arsenal made a offer in the region of £16million to cash-strapped Malaga.

Medical and terms

Tim Cahill is gearing up for a stateside adventure after agreeing to sign for New York Red Bulls. The midfielder will travel to the Big Apple this week to complete a medical.

Signed, sealed, delivered

West Ham have tied up a deal for 19-year-old Swiss goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel, who will likely act as back-up to Jussi Jaaskelainen this season. The U20 international joins from Grasshoppers for an undisclosed fee.
