Tottenham are in negotiations with Palermo in a bid to take Danish centre-back Simon Kjaer and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani to White Hart Lane, with the Italian side hoping to bank £28m for the pair.

Mexico winger Pablo Barrera, who plays in his native country for Pumas, has welcomed interest from Manchester United and Spurs as the 23-year-old eyes a summer move to the Premier League.

United are also keen on £12m-rated Portuguese midfielder Raul Meireles. The 27-year-old plays his club football for Porto.

And keeping his options open, Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is also keeping tabs on 24-year-old Spanish star Jesus Navas. The Sevilla winger would be a little more expensive thought, at £16m.

European champions Inter Milan have cooled their interest in Liverpool and Argentina midfielder Javier Mascherano because of the asking price.

Manchester City’s England winger Shaun Wright-Phillips looks to be on his way out of Eastlands because the big-spending club are unwilling to meet his £100,000-a-week wage demands. City are also close to signing Barcelona’s Yaya Toure, Aston Villa’s James Milner and David Silva from Valencia in a £88m refit of their midfield.

Arsenal are interested in Stuttgart midfielder Sami Khedira, who was drafted into Germany’s World Cup squad after Michael Ballack and his replacement Christian Trasch pulled out through injury. The 23-year-old would cost the Gunners in the region of £13m.

Blackpool have launched an ambitious bid to sign Bayern Munich striker Deniz Yilmaz. The 22-year-old German-born Turkish forward would cost £750,000.
