Recently there has been a lot of talk that Georginio Wijnaldum is set to make a £15million move to Newcastle and now according to reports, the North East based outfit are on the verge of completing another major coup by securing the services of Anderlecht star Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Mitrovic has been a long time target for Newcastle and the Premier League side could finally be able to sign the Serbian wonderkid after reportedly agreeing a £12million fee with Anderlecht.

Diafra Sakho eyed as Robin van Persie replacement by Manchester United

Therefore it has been no surprise to see a host of names being linked with United and now according to reports from the Daily Mail, it has been claimed that the Red Devils are eying a swoop for West Ham United star Diafra Sakho.

Sakho was one of the revelations of the Premier League campaign last season, scoring 12 goals in 26 appearances and United are now said to be pondering a move for the West Ham man as a replacement for van Persie.

Tottenham beat Liverpool in the race to sign Fernando Llorente

Tottenham Hotspur possess one of the best young strikers in the world at the moment in the form of Harry Kane but the hapless duo of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor look likely to leave White Hart Lane this summer.
