HIGUAIN TO ARSENAL?
Busy day of Gossip, so let's get cracking.
Good news for Gooners first of all, because The Daily Telegraph reports that Gonzalo Higuain is a target for Arsenal this summer, as Arsene Wenger looks to spend some of the reported £70million transfer budget.
Apparently Arsenal are looking at a £19million bid for the Argentinean striker, just one of a number of options Wenger is considering.
The paper reports: 'Arsenal have also watched Stevan Jovetic, the Montenegro and Fiorentina striker, but there are doubts over whether he will leave Italy. Wayne Rooney is another striker to have been considered, but he is unlikely to fit into Arsenal's wage structure.
'Karim Benzema, another Real Madrid forward with an uncertain future, is also a player Wenger has long admired and it is this calibre of established forward that Arsenal want to sign.'
The Telegraph also reckons Asmir Begovic, Etienne Capoue and Lukasz Piszczek are also targets, along with Yaya Sanogo, the young French forward apparently already on his way to the Emirates.
Meanwhile, The Daily Mirror has the annual story about Arsenal having a massive clear-out, reporting that Marouane Chamakh, Nicklas Bendtner, Park Chu-Young, Andre Santos, Denilson, Johan Djourou, Andrey Arshaving and Thomas Vermaelen could all be on their way.
NEW DEAL FOR BALE
Tottenham's failure to qualify for the Champions League meant many assumed that Gareth Bale would leave this summer, but not so, according to The Guardian.
They report that Bale is set to sign a new deal at Spurs, upping his wages significantly.
The paper claims that Levy will make a statement by 'Giving Bale, the Professional Footballers' Association player of the season and young player of the season, terms worth about £150,000 a week.'
Indeed so. Of course with the likes of Real Madrid apparently keen, this doesn't mean that Bale will stay for a long time, but it does suggest he'll be at Spurs for another season at least.
Meanwhile, The Daily Mirror suggests there might be a wee clear-out at White Hart Lane, with Emmanuel Adebayor, Clint Dempsey, Scott Parker, William Gallas, Tom Huddlestone, Heurelho Gomes, Danny Rose and David Bentley (yep, he's still there) could all leave.
Christian Benteke, David Villa, Hulk and Lisandro Lopez are all mentioned as potential arrivals.
MOYES TO KEEP ROONEY?
Interesting line in The Guardian, who report that David Moyes is leaning towards keeping Wayne Rooney at Manchester United.
It was thought that given their 'history', Moyes would get rid of Rooney, but it seems that's not necessarily the case.
The Guardian claims: 'Rooney played under Moyes when he started his career at Everton in 2002 and the forward is open to discussing a fresh start at United.
'Most importantly, there is a desire on the part of Moyes to keep Rooney at United. Rooney has two years remaining on his deal - the usual point for renewing terms - and, if he decides to stay, his salary of about £300,000 a week means any negotiations regarding a fresh contract could be lengthy.
'Although United maintain Rooney is not for sale, if Moyes fails to persuade him to stay then pragmatically the best course for both player and club may be for him to depart. The difficulty, though, lies in the limited number of suitors who can match United's £40m valuation - though they may have to accept closer to £25m - and Rooney's wages.'

The assumption has been for a while now that Falcao will leave Atletico Madrid, and the club appear to have confirmed that is the case.
