European Transfer Talk: Including Finnbogason, Deulofeu and Valdes

Sunderland, Everton, West Ham, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool targets feature.

Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason’s agent has denied any contact with AC Milan for his players services next season. The Icelandic goal machine has been in superb form with 24 goals in 28 appearances but Magnus Agnar Magnusson insists there has only been interest from the Premier League so far.

Italian bad-boy Antonio Cassano could be on his way to Dubai this summer. Cassano was only signed from AC Milan last summer but Inter Milan are now considering sending him on his way after he fell out with manager Andrea Stramaccioni. His agent has been spotted in the United Arab Emirates.

Carlo Ancelotti has been linked with the Real Madrid job next season and it is being suggested he could take a couple of his Paris Saint-Germain stars with him. With Jose Mourinho expected to vacate the Bernabeu this summer the Italian is being lined up as the obvious replacement for his services; and the caveat of Thiago Silva and Marco Veratti apparently coming with him will be an extra plus for Los Merengues.

Borussia Dortmund look ready to rival several English Premier League clubs for Barcelona B star Gerard Deulofeu. He has been one of the stars of the Segunda Liga season. The attacking forward could be brought in to help alleviate the effect of the departures of Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski this summer.

David Villa is expected to join Inter Milan according to Italian reports. Villa is not expected to remain at Barcelona and could be used as a makeweight in a potential deal for Samir Handanovic.

Reports in France today suggest that Victor Valdes could be on his way to Monaco. The principality side are expected to buy this summer as they prepare for life back in the top flight. Backed by a Russian billionaire they are being linked with several big names but Valdes is now the number one goalkeeper target.
