Besiktas are tracking Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, 29, with the club claiming they “have made efforts to sign him”.

David De Gea to Real Madrid? Apparently, the 26-year-old Manchester United goalkeeper can go if Raphael Varane, 24, moves in the other direction.

David Luiz, 30, is worried he’s on his way out of Chelsea. He claims they dropped him because he’s a friend of Diego Costa, not that he was playing badly or defending poorly. No, sir, not those reasons.

With David Ospina, 29, set to leave next summer, Arsenal want Real Madrid stopper Keylor Navas, 30, to be their next dodgy ‘keeper. Liverpool are specialists in that area and are also interested.

Meanwhile, Arsène Wenger wants to sign Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup, 25, for £10m. The Gunners sold him for £400,000 five years ago.

Norwich City midfielder James Maddison, 20, was found to have a pulse so Everton are naturally keen to sign him.

Lewis Holtby, 27, didn’t enjoy the best of times at Tottenham but Newcastle United aren’t put off by that. The Hamburg midfielder is available on a free transfer next summer.

Lyon defender Mouctar Diakhaby, 20, is being eyed by Chelsea but surprise, surprise, Manchester City are also interested.
