European transfer talk: Featuring Ljajic, Siqueira and Thauvin

Targets for Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton, Newcastle United and Arsenal all feature.

Lille are remaining stern on their stance regarding Florian Thauvin - insisting the attacking midfielder is not for sale.

The player has not played a professional tie for the club - who he signed for in January. He was immediately sent back out on loan and had an incredible end to last season with his former club Bastia.

That, and an incredible performance in the FIFA World Under-20 Championships, has seen him linked with a move to Marseille this summer.

But Lille say he is not for sale.

AC Milan have defended their bid for Fiorentina star Adem Ljajic. The Serbian has been in excellent form recently for La Viola and is considered vital for their ambitious title plans this season. However his contract expires in a years’ time and AC Milan have been named the favourites to snap him up:

"We haven't done anything wrong. We aren't barred from making an offer in the transfer window."

Verona have snapped up former Liverpool goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov. The Bulgarian moves to the newly promoted Serie A side from FC Twente and will undergo a medical tomorrow. Verona have beaten fellow newly promoted outfit Sassuolo to his coveted signature.

Inter Milan continue to chase Bologna midfielder Saphir Taider - also a reported target of Manchester United’s.

The 21-year-old is valued at €18 million and while no bid has been made for the player the clubs have spoken about a deal.

Real Madrid are still said to be after Granada defender Guilherme Siqueira. The Brazilian left-back is reportedly still on Carlo Ancelotti’s radar - but no deal can be completed until Fabio Coentrao is sold by Los Blancos. Therefore a deal could drag on until deadline day itself.

AC Milan midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng is apparently in the crosshairs of Borussia Dortmund. The Ghanaian is being linked with a move away from Italy this summer and Jurgen Klopp confirmed the clubs interest in the player recently.
