Liverpool are apparently looking to bring in Tottenham pair Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka as the Anfield side looks to strengthen it’s squad this summer. They may also be about to be ripped-off somewhat by Juventus who are only willing to pay £5m for Alberto Aquilani, a fee that is some way short of the £20m+ that Rafa Benitez paid for the Italian not that long ago.

Moves for the Spurs pair would add numbers to the Merseyside outfit and help give cover for in the back four as Corluka can cover for Martin Kelly and Glen Johnson at right back as well as work to cover the centre back contingent with Sotirios Kyrgiakos and Jamie Carragher both getting on a bit.

Man United have been linked with moves to sign Luka Modric, Jack Rodwell, Jordan Henderson and Ashley Young today and will apparently look to conduct something of a summer clear out in order to make way for the quartet. The likes of Michael Carrick, Darron Gibson, Danny Welbeck and Jonny Evans all reportedly being seen as potential make-weights in deals to land new signings with Michael Owen and Owen Hargreaves also exit bound.

Talking of Michael Owen, it seems that when his contract runs out this summer he will be the subject of much interest from Everton and Sunderland.Wayne Rooney is also a big money target for Jose Mourinho who is looking to beef up his attacking options and the Real Madrid boss may offer Karim Benzema as part of any deal, a player that Sir Alex Ferguson is known to admire.

Arsenal are chasing Ipswich Town starlet Connor Wickham and apparently Inter Milan want Robin Van Persie and Andrei Arshavin and Nicklas Bendtner is wanted by Juventus with Arsene Wenger also tracking Ajax keeper Maarten Stekelenburg, which could mean an exit for one or more of the club’s goalkeeping contingent with the most likely to leave being Manuel Almunia and Vito Mannone.

Newcastle United reportedly want Carlton Cole to beef up a front line that currently includes the rather average services of Peter Lovenkrands, Leon Best, Shola Ameobi and the up and coming youngster Nile Ranger.

Chelsea will once again try to land Brazilian Neymar and Manchester City could lose David Silva who appears to want to move back to Spain. Inter Milan want Tottenham youngster Sandro.
