European transfer talk: Featuring Cardozo, Honda and Flamini

Former Arsenal, Liverpool and QPR players feature as well as transfer targets for Cardiff City, Manchester City and Chelsea.

Fiorentina and Bayern Munich are struggling to come to an agreement over the price of German international Mario Gomez. The striker is reportedly not in the plans of new Bayern manager Pep Guardiola and the Serie A outfit are the front runners for his signature.

Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has rejected the offer of a new contract with AC Milan. The utility man’s deal with the club expired this summer and he has decided his future may lie elsewhere; with Inter Milan and Napoli interested.

Russian Premier League outfit Kuban Krasnodar have signed French international Djibril Cisse on a free transfer. The striker was a free agent after his release by QPR and will play in the Europa League next season after Kuban finished in an impressive fifth position in the Premier League.

Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo, who has been linked with Premier League outfits Cardiff City and Manchester City, is said to be on the verge of signing for Turkish Super Lig outfit Fenerbahce. The Paraguayan has reportedly informed the Portuguese outfit he desires a move and it now seems that Fener is his likely destination.

Reports today have suggested that CSKA Moscow midfielder Keisuke Honda has agreed a four-year deal with AC Milan. It is rumoured he will officially become a Rossoneri player when his contract with the Russian outfit expires in January. However this claim has now been disputed.

Jeremy Toulalan is all set to join Monaco from Malaga. The clubs have reportedly come to an agreement on a fee for the French international; who made his desire to leave the tumultuous outfit clear this summer.

Antonio Cassano has agreed his move from Inter Milan to Parma. The Italian international only arrived at the San Siro last summer but the Nerazzuri have decided to use the 30-year-old as part of a deal to bring former Liverpool target Ishak Belfodil to the club; although that deal is not yet confirmed.
