Alvaro Negredo is seeking to leave the Ethihad and Atletico Madrid are keeping tabs on the Spanish striker according to the Daily Mail.

French International Mathieu Debuchy plans to address his Newcastle United future after the SWC as he admits to missing UEFA Champions League football. He said: “I miss European football and the Champions League in particular. For the moment, I’m concentrating on the World Cup. We’ll see about the rest afterwards.”

Arsenal has enquired about the availability of in-demand Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez.

Newcastle United are in pursuit to make a bid of £2million for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie according to The Sun.

New Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is returning to his old backyard Holland for new recruits, and he considers FC Twente and Serbia international Dusan Tadic to be an ideal addition to the Premier League ranks.

Puma want Mario Balotelli's Arsenal deal done - so he can feature at the Gunners' new kit launch but Ruud Gullit asked Arsene Wenger who is appearing on beIN Sport's World Cup show, if he was buying ‘Super Mario’, but responded:

FC Barcelona have signed Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.
