Wantaway Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is wanted in Madrid. No news there then?

In fact, it is (rumoured) news, because it's Atletico - along with Real - who have reportedly added the Uruguayan near the top of their transfer wish list as they attempt to fill the forward gap left behind by Monaco mover Radamel Falcao. Real may then turn to Suarez's international strike partner, Edinson Cavani from Napoli, instead. (Mail on Sunday)

Today's Gareth Bale speculation sees Real Madrid ready to slap down £85m in a bid to wobble Daniel Levy(according to The Sunday Times). But that will count for nothing if The Sunday Telegraph is to be believed. The paper claims Spurs will soon tell the Welshman that he is not for sale at any price.

Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski's Premier League career could be coming to a premature end. The 27-year-old is wanted by Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund. (The Sun)

Dutch international Erik Pieters could be enjoying trips to the KC Stadium and Selhurst Park, though. The PSV Eindhoven has been targeted as the first man through the door in Mark Hughes' "progress" project at Stoke. (Sunday Mirror)

Meanwhile, in Spain, Sevilla winger Jesus Navas has got Europe's biggest clubs hot under the collar after announcing that he will switch clubs this summer, in the prime career age of 27. (L'Equipe)
