Adebayor has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs following the summer-signing of fellow striker Roberto Soldado, while Benayoun is a free agent after his contract at Chelsea expired at the end of last season.

It was reported that the former Arsenal striker had attended QPR's 0-0 draw with Wigan, but Redknapp laughed off the suggestions that he could be about to sign the 29-year old for the second time in his career.

"I wouldn't think there's a lot of chance getting him up to Wigan on a wet, windy and cold Wednesday night. I would think he's probably had somewhere better to go," he told a press conference.

"He's not coming here, no chance."

Redknapp also rubbished talk linking him with a move for former West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder Benayoun.

"I don't know where the story's come from. I've always been a big fan of Yossi Benayoun. For me he's an excellent footballer," he said.

"I wouldn't say we wouldn't be interested in him if he is available and fit, but I haven't discussed it with the board here or anybody else. There's no story at the moment."

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!
