- Barcelona defender Dani Alves has emerged as a possible transfer target for Liverpool, according to both Sportmediaset and Mundo Deportivo.

- Brendan Rodgers insists Liverpool will "categorically" not be signing AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli this summer.

- Liverpool and Manchester United target Marco Reus is going nowhere this summer, according to Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke.

"We have said many times this summer that Reus will not leave," Watzke said.

"Marco will play with us next season.

"There is no possibility that he will play elsewhere. We will try to tie him to our club for longer and we are proceeding with peace of mind that he will renew his deal."

- Arsenal are lining up a £30m bid for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, according to the Daily Express.

- Arsene Wenger is keen to keep Joel Campbell at Arsenal even though the striker has been linked with a loan switch to AC Milan.

- Arsenal are believed to be on the verge of making a £24m offer for William Carvalho, according to Metro citing reports in Portugal.
- Garry Monk insists he wants Liverpool target Wilfried Bony to stay at Swansea City.

"We saw a very good Wilfried last season but with the work ethic he has and what we're trying to do I think he can be even better this year," he told Wales Online.

"If he listens to what we're telling him - and he does, because he's a great guy and a great person to work with - you'll see a better Bony. I'm not counting down the days to the end of the window or anything like that. There's nothing you can do about speculation.

"Unless there's a concrete offer that we think is good for us and we want to do business, it doesn't matter. Even then, we're in control - so all of that doesn't matter, because it's speculation - Wilfried's our player."

- Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is ready to use Nacer Chadli as bait to get Southampton to sell Morgan Schneiderlin, according to The Sun.

- Tottenham are close to agreeing a £17 million deal for Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio, according to The Times.

- West Ham are making a move for former England striker Peter Crouch, according to the Daily Express.

- Monaco striker Radamel Falcao insists he is not aware of any interest from Real Madrid.

- Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu has joined Stuttgart on a season-long loan deal.

- Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is keen to sign Manchester United wonderkid Demetri Mitchell on loan, according to the Daily Mirror.

- Tony Pulis is eyeing Stoke's Marc Wilson to bolster his Crystal Palace defence, according to the Daily Star.

- AC Milan are interested in signing Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina but his wages will once again prove a stumbling block, according to the Daily Mail.

- Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has vowed to make several new signings this week.
