European transfer talk: Featuring Falcao, Sakho and Kondogbia

Transfer targets for Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City could be on the move, whilst ex-Sunderland and Tottenham players feature.

Radamel Falcao insists he is happy at AS Monaco, and he has dismissed any talk of him reportedly readying an exit from the club as nonsense. It was reported he was disillusioned with a potential change in the regulations on tax laws for the principality - which had seen him subsequently linked with a move to Real Madrid among others. But Falcao has put an end to those rumours:

"It's a totally false article. I'm very happy at Monaco and I believe in the project. Everything is false, even the numbers quoted by the press are false. I feel great at the club and I'm going to stay here."

Galatasaray have been rejected by former Sunderland player Asamoah Gyan. He reportedly had the chance to join the Turkish giants from his current club Al Ain of the United Arab Emirates.

The Ghanaian has been the top scorer in the UAE top division for two seasons running now, and said he did not want to sacrifice his happiness for another shot at European football.

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Reto Ziegler is set to move back to Italy with newly promoted outfit Sassuolo. The Juventus owned Swiss international has spent the past two seasons on loan in Russia and Turkey and is not wanted in Turin.

AC Milan are set to make a move for Paris Saint-Germain defender Mamadou Sakho. The French international and former club captain has become irritated with the lack of first-team football in the French capital - and will now make his way out of the club.

Sakho has handed in a transfer request, but whether Milan could afford him or not remains to be seen.

It seems that AS Monaco have snuck in to snap up Sevilla midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia. The French youth international has been linked with a plethora of clubs this summer, and it is reported in Spain that Monaco have met the Spanish clubs release clause for the player.

Finally, and news from Russia, where Lokomitiv Moscow have agreed a fee with Rubin Kazan for Finland international Roman Eremenko. He will now discuss personal terms and undergo a medical with The Railwaymen.
