Cape Town - The transfer window may be closed but there is persistent talk of proposed moves for some of the world's brightest stars.

The THREE transfer rumours to watch:

1. Jack Wilshere (Arsenal to Manchester City)

Despite the long (and troubled) history between Arsenal and Manchester City - think Adebayor, Nasri, Sagna, Clichy and Kolo Toure - the Manchester club are reportedly interested in a move for the England international.

The Mirror report that City could tempt Arsene Wenger into parting with Wilshere for a fee in the region of £30 million. C

ity are desperate to increase the number of homegrown players in their squad but will face an uphill battle in trying to land Wilshere, who has three years left on his current deal with the Gunners.

Likelihood of a transfer? 2.5/10

2. Pedro (Barcelona to Arsenal)

The Express report that the out of favour Spanish international could be top priority for Arsene Wenger in the summer.

Pedro has a wealth of experience and could be sold by the Catalan giants for the right price. A fee in the region of £24 million could see Pedro lining up with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil next season.

The 27-year-old will not leave Barcelona easily and is being monitored by a host of European clubs including Liverpool and Inter Milan.

Likelihood of a transfer? 4/10

3. Javier Hernandez (Manchester United to Real Madrid)

The Mexico star has shone in recent matches for Madrid in the absence of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema with speculation increasing that Carlo Ancelotti could yet turn his loan move into a permanent deal.

The "Little Pea" netted the all important winner against Atletico Madrid and scored a brace in the league which has seen his stock soaring amongst Los Blancos fans.

talkSPORT report that the player himself is unsure of his next club but he is currently playing at the best club in the world.

Likelihood of a transfer? 6/10
