LIVERPOOL TO MAKE LALLANA BID
It's little surprise after the season that both player and club have enjoyed, but our friends at Sky claim that Liverpool will this summer make a move for Southampton captain Adam Lallana.

The England international will (hopefully) be an integral part of England's World Cup campaign this summer, and scored nine Premier League goals and registered six assists. He has also created 69 chances for his team-mates, acting as his club's brightest light amongst some rather shiny players.

Southampton insist that they have had no offer as yet, and have previously made claims about keeping their best players, but it is thought that a bid of just over £20million will arrive from Anfield in the near future as Brendan Rodgers looks to ensure that his side kick on after a fabulous season.

Watch this space, appears to be the message.


COLE INTERESTING EVERYONE
Surely it appears obvious that you are allowing a player to leave earlier than he should when those interested parties include clubs that have enjoyed more recent success than yourselves? And that's exactly what appears to be the case with Chelsea and Ashley Cole.

The Daily Express claim that Monaco will offer the England international a £12million, two-year deal, but the Daily Mirror go altogether more ballsy in their approach. They claim that Manchester City have joined the race for Cole, and will face competition from Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Shows what a consistent performer you have been when four Champions League clubs (and United) are clambering over themselves to snap you up.


BIG SAM'S FOR THE CHOP
And not even a tender cooked in onions and cider, either. The Daily Mail claim that West Ham will make the move to sack their manager following their final match of the season against Manchester City.

Whilst there will be many that insist West Ham have not had a 'way' of playing since the sixties, and remind supporters that this was a Football League club two years ago, the feeling inside the Boleyn Ground is that Allardyce has taken the Hammers backwards in the last year. The style of play has always been a touch agricultural for supporters.

In recent weeks Allardyce has been making summer transfer plans and expressing his intention to fight for his job, but it seems those hopes may now be forlorn. Couldn't sack him if he won at City though, surely?


AND THE REST
Inter Milan want to sign Chelsea striker Fernando Torres on loan next season...Arsene Wenger fears Arsenal will lose full-back Bacary Sagna on a free transfer this summer...Fulham will dangle the carrot of regular first-team football to keep teenage hotshots Patrick Roberts and Moussa Dembele...Fabio Borini is facing a summer dilemma whether to return to Liverpool and fight for his place or seek a permanent move to Sunderland...Gareth Barry is considering finishing his playing career abroad in a move that would thwart Roberto Martinez's hopes of keeping the England midfielder at Everton.
