Transfer Talk: Featuring Pepe, Cesc and Suarez

Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Manchester United, Sunderland and Newcastle United all feature.

Manchester City appear to be ready to aggressively pursue defender Pepe of Real Madrid.

The Portuguese star has been linked with the club for much of the summer but reports are suggesting that City are finally ready to put cash on the table with an initial £22 million offer for the centre back.

City's city rivals Manchester United have also been busy, going back to the Barcelona table with a second offer for midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

United made an opening offer for the Spaniard last week, thought to be in the region of the £25 million mark, and manager David Moyes has confirmed the club's chief executive Ed Woodward is trying to make the deal happen.

Tottenham Hotspur appear to be hot on the trail of Wigan Athletic midfielder James McCarthy but there seems to be a bit of an issue on price.

Wigan are thought to be holding out for a £20 million fee for the 22-year-old, which Spurs don’t seem keen on agreeing to which has raised the possible suggestion of a Spurs star or stars heading the other way in a part exchange deal.

Meanwhile, on the red side of North London, Arsenal are reportedly ready to revitalise their interest in Swansea City captain Ashley Williams.

The Metro has reported that the Gunners are taking another look at Williams, captain of Swansea City, following an ankle injury to key defender Laurent Koscielny, which could force the club to go after the Welshman.

Joe Kinnear could go a long way to winning over his doubters at Newcastle United if the club can complete a double swoop for Bafetimbi Gomis of Lyon and Loic Remy of Queens Park Rangers.

Newcastle have apparently already made a bid for Gomis while the club are due to have talks with QPR and Remy’s representatives at some point this week.

Liverpool have been pro-active allowing 20-year-old midfielder Krisztian Adorjan to go on a season long loan to Dutch side FC Groningen.

The Hungarian has been on trial with the Eredivisie side and completes the loan deal, which Liverpool hope will allow their player to dramatically improve and increase his first team experience at professional level.

Brendan Rodgers has also revealed that star striker Luis Suarez seems to be in ‘great spirits’ and he expects the forward to be a Liverpool player by the start of the season, despite constant speculation that he will leave Anfield.

Sunderland remain busy in the transfer window, with manager Paolo Di Canio admitting he is always on the look out for possible new signings that could improve his squad.

“Obviously we know the board knows that we need something more. But I don't know if it's possible at the moment. We have already made some good signings and the club has made some sacrifices in some ways, they have spent some money,” said Di Canio.
