Transfer talk: Featuring Sinclair, Cabaye and Benzema

Van Persie And Sinclair

Transfer news involving Arsenal, Manchester City, West Brom, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Sunderland.

Scott Sinclair looks set to be on the way out of his terrible spell at Manchester City. The winger arrived at The Etihad last summer but has barely made an impact on the team in 2012-13. He is all set to join West Bromwich Albion on a seasons-long loan deal - which will then see him move permanently in the event of the deal being a success.

Sinclair will have a medical and discuss personal terms in the next 24 hours.

Paris Saint-Germain are all set to rival Arsenal for any move for French international Yohan Cabaye. The Gunners made a £12 million bid for the Newcastle United player on Monday - a bid that was branded insulting and was immediately dismissed.

PSG are said to have offered more for the player, whom their coach Laurent Blanc is a massive fan of.

Another French Yohan,who could be arriving in England is Yohan Mollo. The Nancy winger is set to join Crystal Palace.

Reports this morning have suggested Arsenal are keen on a pair of Real Madrid players.

It is claimed that Arsene Wenger is finally ready to kick off the spending spree by going in for Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria.

It comes as he confirmed that there is no chance if signing Luis Suarez this summer.

Arsenal could reportedly go down a cost-effective route, by bringing back Mathieu Flamini to the club. The Frenchman is a free agent since his release by West Ham.

Tottenham Hotspur are set to continue spending their money on Bulgarian prospect Todor Nedelev. The 20-year-old is a highly talented player and would cost around £5 million from Botev Plovdiv.

It comes the day after Anzhi Makhachkala forward Willian passed a medical with the club, but he is still said to be assessing his options.

Sunderland are said to be moving ever closer to signing up Juventus left-back Paolo De Ceglie. That would be the cubs 12th signing, should Charis Mavrias' medical go without a hitch, and reportedly take their spending to over £20 million this summer.

Finally, and Gareth Bale watch. Tottenham Hotspur officials are said to be in Madrid thrashing out a deal as I type, with representatives of Roma starlet Erik Lamela also there to soften the blow for Spurs fans.

But Andre Villas Boas insists that no deal is anywhere near to being done.
