But Turkish club Galatasaray hope to fight off Juventus, Sampdoria and AC Milan for England international Jenas, who did not feature in Spurs’ 0-0 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.

Liverpool still hope Javier Mascherano will stay at Anfield but admit they have a private agreement with the midfielder to allow him to leave if the right price is offered.

Chelsea target Neymar, the 18-year-old Santos forward, will decide on Tuesday whether to complete a £24m move to the Premier League.

Liverpool are considering a move for Dynamo Kiev forward Artem Milevskiy as manager Roy Hodgson looks to bolster his strikeforce.

Manchester City are hoping to sell Brazilian forward Robinho to German club Schalke 04 – and use the cash to make a new bid for Benfica defender David Luiz.

City have been warned they will have to complete the signing of James Milner by Wednesday or face the prospect of the England midfielder remaining at Aston Villa for the rest of the season.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has urged Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy not to throw away his career by dropping into the Championship to play for Cardiff.

Redknapp is hoping to bolster his squad by persuading Sevilla winger Diego Capel to join the White Hart Lane club.

Everton have joined the queue of clubs interested in providing Bellamy with an escape from Eastlands, despite their inability to match the Wales international’s current salary.

The Toffees are chasing FC Utrecht’s attacking midfielder Dries Mertens, but will face competition from PSV Eindhoven and Twente Enschede for the 23-year-old.

But City will try to soften the blow of Given’s relegation to the bench by offering the goalkeeper a pay rise and the chance to stay at Eastlands until he turns 39.

Current Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia, meanwhile, will seek talks about his future if Wenger brings in another senior goalkeeper before the transfer window closes.

Newcastle are close to signing Feyenoord midfielder Leroy Fer – nicknamed the Bouncer because of his powerful physique.

Stoke manager Tony Pulis is ready to smash the club’s transfer record again with a £9m swoop for Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega.

West Ham’s Swiss midfielder Valon Behrami wants to leave for Roma because he says his family cannot settle in London.

Rangers have handed former Sheffield Wednesday winger Etienne Esajas the chance to earn a contract at Ibrox by taking the 25-year-old Dutchman on trial.

Hull are ready to send unwanted striker Daniel Cousin to Greek club Larissa and hope his departure will free up funds to let them move for Cardiff forward Ross McCormack and Arsenal striker Jay Simpson.

Leeds manager Simon Grayson is interested in signing former Aston Villa and Manchester City striker Darius Vassell, who is a free agent.

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway hopes Saturday’s 4-0 victory over Wigan will help the club attract new players before the transfer window closes.

Aiden McGeady has revealed he had to leave Celtic because he feared for his safety in Glasgow. The winger, who joined Spartak Moscow in a £9.5m deal, says he received death threats and constant verbal abuse from members of the public.

Blackburn are a takeover target for two wealthy Indian businessmen. Representatives of billionaire Ahsan Aly Syed arrived at Ewood Park on Monday for talks, claiming they will inject £300m into Rovers. They hope to block a bid by rival Saurin Shah, who is due in Blackburn on Wednesday for talks.

Rovers manager Sam Allardyce will be given £100m to spend on players this season if Ali Syed’s proposed bid for the club is successful.

Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra and four France team-mates will attend a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday over their role in the players’ strike after striker Nicolas Anelka was sent home from the World Cup this summer.
