Nikica Jelavic: Linked with a move to Germany

The Bundesliga club have been strongly linked with a move for the Croatia international, who joined Everton in January 2012 from Rangers.

Jelavic, who has three years left on his current deal, scored seven times for Everton last season but it is not yet known whether he will be first choice under new Toffees chief Roberto Martinez, who has signed Arouna Kone from his former club Wigan.

Despite an interest in the player, Hamburg insist that a deal is not on the cards.

"It is still a fact we first have to sell a couple of players before we can dig into buying any new," Hamburger general manager Oliver Kreuzer is quoted by Bild.

"And as far as I am concerned we will be unable to finance a deal with Everton FC for him [Jelavic]."

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!
