Transfer News Today: Chelsea make bid for Moses


Mere forum chatter

Chelsea could be one step closer to signing Uruguayan star Edinson Cavani. The player's wife is reported to be fed up with life in Naples, where she was mugged this week. She has flown to London, where the striker is preparing to represent his country in the Olympic Games. If they enjoy their time in the city, a permanent move could become more likely.

Tabloid speculation

West Ham are reportedly keen to re-sign defender James Collins from Aston Villa. The Welshman, who must really like the colour claret, could be available for as little as £2million.

Contact made

Juventus are reported to have made an inquiry into the availability of Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko. The Bosnian, who has only impressed in patches for the Premier League champions, would likely cost a good deal less than the £27million City paid for him.

Bid tabled

How many attackers are Chelsea going to sign this summer?! Wigan paceman Victor Moses is latest on their shopping list, with Roberto Di Matteo stumping up a £9million offer yesterday. Much will depend on whether the 21-year-old fancies a year of bench-warming...

Medical and terms

Did we miss the press release about Leeds United becoming a feeder club for Norwich City? With Jonny Howson and Bradley Johnson already having swapped Elland for Carrow Road, it appears that Robert Snodgrass could be the latest to jump ship in a deal worth around £3million.
