A number of clubs have been linked with a move for Dann, but Palace are hoping to win the race for his signature.

Palace boss Tony Pulis is keen to bolster his defensive options before the close of the transfer window and he is a long-term admirer of Dann having tried to sign him during his time in charge of Stoke.

Blackburn are reluctant to lose Dann, but know they cannot stand in the way of a return to the Premier League and his sale could allow Gary Bowyer to strengthen his squad elsewhere.

Dann is thought to be keen on a move back to the Premier League and is to hold talks with Pulis on Friday with the transfer window set to close at 11pm.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
