Laudrup is keen to bolster his attacking options before the close of the transfer window and he is weighing up a move for unsettled Albion man Odemwingie.

Odemwingie is out of favour at The Hawthorns and has been told he does not figure in Steve Clarke's plans after failing to push through a move to Queens Park Rangers in the January transfer window.

The likes of Stoke, Cardiff City and Crystal Palace are all thought to be chasing Odemwingie and Laudrup has confirmed he is an admirer of the Nigerian.

"We want to add one more who can give us that in a certain part of the game or in certain games," Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post

"And he (Odemwingie) is a player with pace who knows the league."

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!
