Sampdoria: Serie A side have signed Birkir Bjarnason and Andrea Petagna

Bjarnason, an Iceland international midfielder, has dual ownership and the 25-year-old only joined Pescara permanently earlier this summer, having spent last season on loan at the now Serie B outfit.

He featured 23 times during his spell at the Stadio Adriatico, scoring twice, but was unable to prevent a 20th-place finish which saw his side suffer relegation from the Italian top flight.

Striker Petagna, 18, has arrived on a season-long loan deal with a view to Sampdoria securing joint ownership of him next summer.

The Italy Under 19 international has only made two first-team appearances for Milan, the club where he progressed through the youth system before making his debut last term.

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!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
