All the transfer news and gossip you need to know from the last 24 hours...
Charlie Adam could be about to leave Liverpool, after Stoke submitted a £4 million bid. Fulham are also said to be interested, and Liverpool are keen to sell to raise funds to acquire their own targets. Adam has fallen out of favour at Liverpool and has not started either of their two league games so far.
The Reds are said to be desperate to offload Andy Carroll to raise big money, and are said to be 'pushing him' towards a switch to West Ham. His preferred choice Newcastle ruled themselves out yesterday after failing to agree a fee. The Mail claim Liverpool want to sign Arsenal winger Theo Walcott if they manage to sell Carroll, while The Sun claim they are lining up a stunning deal for £30 million rated striker Fernando Llorente of Athletic Bilbao.
Tottenham are about to rekindle their long-standing interest in Marseille striker Loic Remy. Chairman Daniel Levy is said to have flown to France to attempt to close a deal for the £20 million rated goalscorer. Chelsea are also believed to be interested in Remy, who if he stays at Marseille will play alongside Joey Barton, who is in France after undergoing a medical at the club yesterday as he looks to seek a move away from QPR.
Fulham are said to have hijacked Fiorentina's move for Dimitar Berbatov, who was scheduled for a switch to the Italian club, but was then courted by Juventus, and then last night was said to have chosen Craven Cottage as his preferred destination. It could be good news for Nicklas Bendtner as Juventus may now go in for Arsenal forward.
The Mirror claim Swansea have agreed a £5.5 million deal for Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez, who is a target they have been chasing for over a fortnight now. The paper claim now all needs to happen is for personal terms to be agreed and a medical to be completed.
Over at Manchester City, midfielder Nigel de Jong could be heading for an exit, with AC Milan ready to make an £8 million offer for the player who is in the final year of his contract, but City are said to want closer to £10 million.
Aston Villa have made a new signing, Joe Bennett from Middlesbrough. He is a left-back, and will likely speed up Stephen Warnock's departure from the club.
