Arsenal are apparently holding out for a massive £80m pay day for captain Cesc Fabregas, a fee that Real Madrid are reportedly considering offering. Emirates boss Arsene Wenger has already been linked with potentials sales of Manuel Almunia back to Spain, Andrei Arshavin back to Russia, Denilson and Nicklas Bendtner to Italy and Carlos Vela to either West Brom or perhaps to La Liga also. Could be a busy summer for the Gunners boss.

Harry Redknapp is as always chasing a number of targets but may also be ready to offload full backs Alan Hutton and Benoit Assou-Ekotto who are both linked with moves to Juventus. Gareth Bale is of course wanted by the whole damn world with Sir Alex Ferguson wanting to nab the youngster.

Talking of Man United it appears that Michael Carrick may be set for a move back to White Hart Lane and Ferguson wants Ashley Young and Southampton youngster Alex Oxdale-Chamberlain. Liverpool want to strengthen their strike-force and want to add Karim Benzema to their front line to go with new signings Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll as well as Dirk Kuyt, David N’Gog and Milan Jovanovic (who can of course play as a front man although no one at Anfield appears to want to give him a chance as a striker).

Chelsea want Ajax full back Gregory van der Wiel as a new right sided option which could then spell the end of Jose Bosingwa’s Stamford Bridge career and may also make Branislav Ivanovic a little nervous. Carlo Ancelotti is also apparently keen on bringing Andrea Pirlo to the club and moves for Kaka continue to dominate the rumour pages as does a possible Didier Drogba departure.

Finally, Blackpool need a keeper so badly they are considering a move to sign Roy Carroll…..
