Transfer talk: Including Bale, Kalou and Modric

Luka Modric

Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, West Ham United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Norwich City all feature.

Gareth Bale is once again at the top of the agenda when it comes to Transfer Talk today - with the Tottenham Hotspur man again linked with a move to Real Madrid this morning.

Today it is reported that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy would be willing to sell the player - if Real break the world record fee they paid for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Tottenham are reportedly ready to accept anything that climbs over £80 million for the Welshman - with the hope of a player thrown into the deal to boot.

Spurs returned from Hong Kong yesterday and Bale is now set to resume training - with his future still far from clear.

Salamon Kalou is looking like performing a U-turn in regards to his move to West Ham this summer. It was reported last week that he would not be making the move - however todays papers suggest differently.

It is now believed that Kalou could be on his way to the Boleyn for a fee of just €3 million although the original fears over his desire to play through the middle could scupper any deal.

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton has been fending off interest in his Scottish international winger Robert Snodgrass today. The former Leeds United man had an excellent campaign in 2012-13 and now the likes of West Ham are being linked with his signature.

Luka Modric has been linked with a move to Manchester United this morning. With a move for Cesc Fabregas now looking like faltering it is believed that David Moyes could turn his attention to the former Tottenham player as his central midfield option this summer.

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is being lined up as the replacement for Roberto Soldado at Valencia. The Mexican could be tempted into a move in order to be a regular first-team player but whether Valencia could afford him, even with the influx from a Soldado sale, remains to be seen.

They are also targeting Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud.

Finally, and Liverpool could be on the verge of solving their left-back problems - after reports in Portugal suggested they could be signing Lorenzo Melgarejo from Benfica. The Paraguayan is apparently set for a medical at the club ahead of a loan deal.
