It seems a wealth of Premier League talent is heading for Italy, according to today’s big rumour stories. Arsenal pair Robin Van Persie and Andrei Arshavin are wanted by Inter Milan boss Leonardo as the Brazilian looks to spend big this summer. Cesc Fabregas however has now apparently committed himself again to the club and a move to Barcelona appears to be a non-starter, however the Catalan club now want Samir Nasri!

Tottenham duo Gareth Bale and Sandro are also wanted by Inter and Roman Pavlyuchenko is keen to leave and the Russian may be heading to Sunderland, who also want David Bentley. Harry Redknapp continues to chase Connor Wickham, the talented Ipswich youngster, so it seems that Robbie Keane may also be on his way. Peter Crouch however looks likely to stay, why is it the giant striker can’t seem to net in the Premier League but is nonetheless a Champion League goal machine?

Newcastle United appear to be having a few problems with unhappy players who are threatening to leave if Mike Ashley fails to invest the Andy Carroll cash this summer. Joey Barton and Jose Enrique will hold fire on contract talks until the summer and apparently Jonas Gutierrez may also chose to walk if new additions are not forthcoming. Alan Pardew will have to hope that the club’s owner does the right thing otherwise things may go sour at the club.

Chelsea are apparently the favourites to land Javier Pastore this summer, the impressive Palermo man is high up on many club’s wish-list after an impressive Serie A campaign this term. Carlo Ancelotti is also considering conducting a clear out with big names like Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka supposedly on their way.
