Wenger turns towards Casillas

Despite rumours suggesting that Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign  Colombian goalie David Ospina, the Daily Express reports that Arsene Wenger is close to striking a deal for Real Madrid ace Iker Casillas. Casillas will reportedly be offered a 5-year contract worth £7 million.

Will Cech move?

Chelsea’s veteran 32-year old goalie Petr Cech has told his management that he is not willing to be a backup for 22-year old starlet Thibaut Courtois, reports the Daily Mirror.

Milan to make offer for Arsenal forward

Inside Futbol are reporting that Italian giants AC Milan could step up their chase for 22-year old Arsenal forward Joel Campbell, who drew plenty of attention with his performances at the World Cup. Some unfounded reports suggest that Arsene Wenger could be open to cashing in on the developing Costa Rican hitman.

Mourinho wants to keep Cech

Chelsea’s boss Jose Mourinho might have brought back his goalkeeper prodigy Thibaut Courtois from loan to be the No.1 at Stamford Bridge, but he has still not lost faith in his long term goalkeeping star Petr Cech, reports the Daily Mail. The Portuguese wants Cech to stay as a support man for Courtois and play a different kind of role in the squad to the one he has playing over the last 10 years.

After conceding that Thomas Vermaelen will be a hard asset to hold on to, Arsene Wenger has already started preparing for a life without their club captain. The Daily Mail reports that Arsenal are keeping an eye on Manchester City defender Matija Nastasić as the man most likely to plug the gap left by the departing Belgian.

Nastasic made 50 appearance for the reigning English champions last season and was actively scouted by Arsenal during his Fiorentina days, before he chose the colours of City. The Serbian international will be aware that his club is keen on signing Eliaquim Mangala, which could put his position at the Etihad in jeopardy.

Call it a long shot, but Manchester City seem quietly confident of landing Chelsea legend Didier Drogba from right under the nose of the Blues, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Manchester City’s 28-year old midfielder James Milner is unsure of where his future lies at the moment. The England international started a mere 11 Premier League games for the Citizens last term, and wants more playing time under the management of Manuel Pellegrini. However, given the depth of Manchester City’s midfield, the former Aston Villa and Leeds United midfielder has little chance of becoming a regular in the Man City line-up.

He does have high profile potential suitors in Liverpool, Arsenal and Everton, who want to sign him if he decides to leave the Etihad, but Manchester Evening News reports that the industrious and versatile midfielder is finding it hard to leave the English champions.

Yaya Toure is a name that has become synonymous with Manchester City in the past few seasons but the Ivorian, hailed as one of the world’s best midfielders, is set to leave the Etihad this summer after encountering irreconcilable differences with the English club. Sensing this confusion as a perfect opportunity, cross town rivals Manchester United tried to lure Toure to Old Trafford but were met with a clear rejection from the 31 year old.

In a sensational report by the Daily Star, Toure snubbed United earlier in the summer as the Red Devils looked to seal a stunning £40m deal. According to the report, Toure is holding out for a move to French giants PSG and has no intentions of playing for City or any other club next season.

Talksport reports that Manchester City’s problem of plenty could be a boon for the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham. The Citizens might find the need to offload 3 of their players in Alvaro Negredo, Matija Nastasic and Javi Garcia next season, drawing the attention of their rivals.

Spanish striker Negredo did a commendable job in his first season at the Etihad, but it is an open secret that he is homesick and might want to go back to Spain. However bleak the chances, striker shy Arsenal and their rivals Tottenham could get a chance to persuade the 28-year old stay on in the Premier League but switch allegiances, considering that the likes of Sergio Aguero, Stevan Jovetic and Edin Dzeko could keep him out of the Manchester City starting XI next season.
