Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers look set for a bit of 'sign games' with their reported transfer wish lists looking mighty similar. Both are battling for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. (Daily Star)

Wenger, though, has placed Alexis Sanchez as his number one target, which may require him to hijack negotiations over Luis Suarez's transfer to Barcelona, with the £30m-rated Chile star a potential makeweight in the deal. (Daily Mail)

Manchester United have been told by Sporting Lisbon they can have their Portuguese star William Carvalho if they part with £37m - although Chelsea are also chasing the 22-year-old holding midfielder. (Daily Express)

The Blues, meanwhile, are refusing to meet the £19m buyout clause to land Atletico Madrid's Filipe Luis as talks stall, so the defender may have to take action himself to force through his desired transfer. (Daily Star)

A move to Stamford Bridge for Carvalho or Luis may see them pass Petr Cech on the way in. The 32-year-old keeper's agent claims he will force a move if Thibault Courtois is picked ahead of him, with Real Madrid and Barcelona Cech's preferred destinations. (Daily Mirror)
