Brendan Rodgers is reported to have shown his interest in every player and it does not come as a surprise that the Liverpool manager has been keeping tabs on Asier Illarramendi to regain Champions League spot next season.

He was deemed surplus to requirements at the very moment he was presented at Santiago Bernabeu and has never been able to make an impact thanks to the packed roster that Real Madrid boast.

Tired of warming the bench in the Spanish capital, he apparently now seeks a move away in order to get playing time.

After wrapping up the Petr Cech transfer, Arsenal were touted to have set their sights on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang,but reports from Germany now claim that his club are determined not to let him go through the exit door this summer.

Thanks to imminent departures of the likes of Lukas Podolski, Arsene Wenger is now under pressure to bring down a top-quality striker to not fall short of numbers.

Having failed to acquire the services of Alexandre Lacazette and a few other prime targets, the French manager turned to the Gabon international to bolster his striking options.

Arsene Wenger made sure that his trend of making marquee signings every summer remained intact with the acquisition of Chelsea custodian Petr Cech, but recent hearsay claims that the French manager will not stop there.

Arturo Vidal is known to be a long-term Arsenal target and there were widespread rumours stating that the Gunners had attempted to lure him to Emirates Stadium earlier this month and it is now being reported that the interest has become so concrete that the London outfit may rubberstamp the deal after the closure of the ongoing Copa America tournament.

Having come out of the financial constraints to fend off pressure from financial heavyweights, Arsenal imposed a figure that could keep hold of their star players, but their resolute will be tested as Real Madrid come knocking for Laurent Koscielny.

Florentino Perez seems to have made his mind up to secure the services of David de Gea at all costs to replace compatriot Iker Casillas in the long term and Manchester United are now plotting a cunning move to make the most out of his interest by landing Sergio Ramos.

Given their desperation to sign a home-grown player to play in accordance with the Football Association rules, Manchester City have prioritized the capture of Raheem Sterling and Jack Wilshere this summer.

The Arsenal midfielder has time and again expressed his intent to dedicate his entire footballing career to the Gunners and he even went on to slam the Citizens for wanting to lure him to Etihad Stadium only to add to the homegrown quota.
