Arsenal continue to look for a new keeper and once again appear to want to land Liverpool star Pepe Reina, a player who apparently yearns for Champions League football. Arsene Wenger already has four keeper but there is speculation that Vito Mannone and Manuel Almunia will be sold this summer and Lukasz Fabianski may have improved but is apparently not guaranteed the first team spot, whilst youngster Wojciech Szczesny.

In other news Bacary Sagna says the North London side will win the Carling Cup for injured skipper Cesc Fabregas. Robin Van Persie looks set captain the side at Wembley and Theo Walcott is also sidelined as is long term injury victim Thomas Vermaelen.

Liverpool will try their hardest to keep Reina and are also lining up moves for Wolfsburg’s Brazilian international Diego, the Bundesliga club have also been linked with moves for Dirk Kuyt, Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger. Celtic new boy Emilio Izaguirre is also on the Merseyside club’s radar. The Anfield club has also ordered Andy Carroll to shed some pounds and Kenny Dalglish looks likely to be named permanent boss in the next week or so.

Manchester United are chasing Man City defender Micah Richards who can ably play at right back and centre back and is still amazingly only 22. Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be concerned about his long term defensive options. Jonny Evans seems to have lost all his confidence and Rio Ferdinand is a constant injury concern. Nemanja Vidic is of course as always as solid as a rock and Chris Smalling has impressed but perhaps the Old Trafford boss also sees Richards as a right back back up as neither John O’Shea or Rafael have commanded the regular first team spot.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has apparently fell out with Scottish international Alan Hutton who appears to have vanished into thin air after a return to form at the beginning of the season. Therefore the White Hart Lane boss has been linked with a move for Fenerbache free agent Gokhan Gonul who could be snapped up.

Redknapp is also looking for a new centre back as a number of his current options are injury concerns, Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King in particular. Man United continue to chase Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti may well look to axe John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba in what would be a very surprising move by the Stamford Bridge boss who is looking to start a new generation of Blues talent. Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka may also be on their way out.

Manchester City are looking to bring in either Dani Alves of Gregory van der Wiel as Roberto Mancini looks to strengthen the right side of his defence. This would be odd given just how many right sided options the club has which include the likes of Micah Richards, Jerome Boateng and Pablo Zabaleta to name just three. Carlos Tevez is apparently also a potential exit bound player as even the Eastlands boss admits he is unsure of the Argentine’s future. Jo, Roque Santa Cruz and Shay Given all also appear likely to leave this summer.

Arsenal are planning a £20million summer bid for Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.
