The last couple of days have seen rumours of some big-money moves: Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for £55m, Torres to Atletico Madrid for £20m, even Cristiano Ronaldo back to United for £60m. But it doesn’t end there…

Official News

Stoppila Sunzu is having a medical at Reading, according to current side TP Mazembe (site is in French). The Zambian defender scored the winning penalty in a thrilling 8-7 shootout to win the 2012 African Cup of Nations.

The Rumour Mill

Radamel Falcao could snub Chelsea in favour of a £48m move to PSG, according to the Sun. The Colombian striker has been singing the praises of the “ambitious sporting project” at the club.

Elsewhere, the BBC reports that Loic Remy is on his way to Newcastle, after the Magpies agreed an £8m fee with Marseille. The Frenchman has been at the centre of one of the biggest transfer sagas this window, with QPR also known to be interested.

Swansea could add Osasuna forward Roland Lamah to their ranks for as little as £2m, the Mirror reports. Swans manager Michael Laudrup will be hoping that this bargain buy is as effective as signing-of-the-season Michu, who has scored 15 goals this season.

17-year-old Derby midfielder Will Hughes is on his way to Manchester City for £7m, says the Sun. The youngster is also being targeted by Arsenal and Spurs.

Gary Hooper is wanted by Norwich City, according to the Guardian. Canaries manager Chris Hughton has openly admitted his need for more firepower, especially with Grant Holt struggling with injury.

Chelsea are after Celta Vigo star Iago Aspas, suggest the Daily Star. The Blues have apparently placed an £8.5m bid for the 25-year-old striker, who is likely to be loaned back to his current club should the bid be successful.

Arsenal target David Villa will not be sold in this window, according to the Independent. Lucky for Arsenal, then, that Theo Walcott looks to be staying at the club (the Mail).

The Mirror reports that Fulham are interested in Belgian “superteen” Bernard Malanda-Adje, according to the Mirror. The £3m-valued Belgian has had an excellent season at centre-back for Pro League side Waregem.

The same article suggests that Banel Nicolita is up for a move to Craven Cottage. Martin Jol is a known admirer of the Romanian winger.
