Jacob Mulenga: Transfer target for Wigan

Nottingham Forest have been credited with an interest in the Zambian attacker, but it appears Wigan are leading the race for the 29-year-old.

Utrecht are thought to be willing to cash in on Mulenga, with the player having only a year to run on his current contract.

Mulenga, who is thought to have rejected offers from Turkey and Israel this summer, netted 14 goals for Utrecht in the Eredivisie last season.

Wigan boss Owen Coyle has previously admitted he was hoping to bring in three or four new forwards this summer after seeing Arouna Kone, Mauro Boselli and Franco Di Santo all leave the DW Stadium.

Coyle has already signed Grant Holt and Marc-Antoine Fortune, and he is now weighing up a move for Mulenga.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
