Transfer News Today: Begovic sets sights on Man United

Forum chatter

David Bentley's career may have been on the wane of late, but he's still attracting covetous glances from a number of sides. The midfielder, who went on loan to FC Rostov for the first half of the season, is rumoured to be a target for Blackburn and Reading.

Tabloid speculation

A series of solid performances for Stoke has put Asmir Begovic on the radars of many of the Premier League big boys. The Canadian is believed to fancy a move to Manchester United, but Liverpool and Arsenal are also possible destinations.

Contact made

We've had the Wilfried Zaha news; now it's Wilfried Bony's time to shine in the transfer spotlight. A 24-year-old striker currently playing for Vitesse Arnhem, Bony could be the latest player to join the relegation battle at Newcastle United. Talks are believed to be ongoing.

Bid tabled

Liverpool's continued interest in Philippe Coutinho could allow Reading to nip in and sign another of their transfer targets, Blackpool's Tom Ince. The Royals are believed to have made a rival bid and hope to steal a march on the Reds.

Medical and terms

That Coutinho deal, incidentally, edged closer to completion yesterday when Liverpool had an £8.5million bid accepted by Internazionale. The Brazilian will travel to England on Monday for a medical.
