Transfer talk: Featuring Jovetic, Suarez and Sagna

Jovetic 2

Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, West Brom, Crystal Palace and Liverpool all feature.

Manchester City have been busy again today; finalising one deal while setting the wheels in motion on another.

Firstly, and the club have finalised a move for Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo. The Spanish international underwent a medical yesterday and the 27-year-old will join fellow former Sevilla team-mate Jesus Navas at the club.

Negredo will wear the number ‘9’ shirt.

City have also agreed a deal with Fiorentina to bring Montenegrin forward Stevan Jovetic into the club this summer.

The 23-year-old has been chased by many of Europe’s biggest clubs this summer but City have won the race for his coveted signature with a deal said to be worth £22 million.

City are being linked with another new signing as well today. Reports suggest that Manuel Pellegrini has set his sights on the signature of Benfica winger Eduardo Salvio in a £25.8 million deal. However the Portuguese outfit are said to want a massive £34.4 million for the Argentine international.

Arsenal apparently have £40 million to spend on Luis Suarez this summer but Liverpool apparently now want £55 million for the Uruguayan star; who has made his desire to play in the Champions League public.

Arsenal’s other striker target is Gonzalo Higuain and apparently Chelsea want him. Despite Jose Mourinho suggesting that Wayne Rooney was the clubs only transfer target this summer the Argentine striker has reportedly told Spanish press that the Special One ‘wants’ him at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile Manchester United have reiterated their stance on Wayne Rooney; telling Chelsea and all other suitors that the England international is categorically not for sale.

West Brom have rejected an approach from Dubai based Al Nasr for Peter Odemwingie believed to be in the region of £850k. The 32-year-old is currently training with the reserves at the Baggies after a controversial six months at the club and is also the subject of interest from Crystal Palace.

Finally and Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna insists he wants to remain a Gunner for the upcoming season.
