LUKAKU OFF TO SPAIN
Quick line from various places, notably The Daily Mirror, who report that Romelu Lukaku could be heading out on loan again, to somewhere a little jazzier than Everton this time.

Apparently Atletico Madrid might well ask, as various transfer negotiations continue, for Lukaku on a season-long loan as a replacement for Diego Costa, who is of course on his way to Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Valencia are reportedly willing to stump up £18million for the big Belgian.


CHELSEA HAVE 'NO CHOICE' BUT TO MOVE FOR KOKE
According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea might have 'no choice' but to make a move for Cesc Fabregas, after Atletico Madrid declared Koke would be going nowhere.

Apparently Fabregas, who the Morning Gossip claimed was likely to head to Manchester United, would cost around £27million.


SPURS NOT KEEN ON MORENO
The Morning Gossip suggested that Spurs were going to gazump Liverpool for Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno, but that is not so, according to our pals at Sky.

They report that no bid has been made, and furthermore it doesn't look like any bid will be made, with Moreno not on a list of potential targets drawn up by Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy.

In more good news for Liverpool fans, Sky claim: 'Tottenham are also understood to have no interest in England and Southampton forward Adam Lallana, another reported target for Liverpool.'


WILL PEPE STAY AT NAPOLI?
Napoli aren't sure if they will be able to keep Pepe Reina next season, which is reasonably interesting but frankly we're only including that story for this splendidly odd Google translated quote from Aurelio de Laurentiis, from The Daily Mirror website:

"We esteem him very much, but you have to agree in twos to sign a contract.

"If there is a conversation you can find an agreement, otherwise not. However, the most important thing is the economic health of the club.

"Napoli respected financial fair play for many years and this is important because it gives tranquillity and certainty to players who know all over the world that when they arrive at Napoli, they won't have delays for their salary payments."
