Benteke, Huddlestone, Sissoko, Koscielny


Transfer Headlines

Crystal Palace - Having signed a supplier in Andros Townsend, Crystal Palace are now looking for a finisher and have tabled a £25-million (€29.79m - AUS$44.26m - US$31.18m) bid for Liverpool flop Christian Benteke. Liverpool want £30-million (€35.75m - AUS$53.11m - US$39.82m) having vastly overpaid for him when they bought him from Aston Villa to put him in a side and system that didn't suit him.

It seemed a crazy and inept piece of transfer dealing at the time with former Liverpool players lining up to question how on earth he was going to fit into a team who didn't cross the ball. That shouldn't be an issue at Crystal Palace and he could help firmly establish them as a mid-table club.

Liverpool - Liverpool have submitted a bid themselves, £11-million (€13.11m - AUS$19.47m - US$14.6m) for 26-year-old Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko who also interests Bundesliga side Hamburg and Seris A side AC Milan. The Frenchman may prefer to stay in the Premier League. On his day he can be a tough opponent, according to Newcastle fans he doesn't have enough of those days. Perhaps Klopp can sort out his motivation and thus mentality to get him performing consistently.

Hull City - Tottenham fans will get to see Tom Huddlestone again, a player who seems happy to coast throughna career without too much effort. He has just signed a new two-year deal with the newly promited side. It's been quite a while coming but I've been on holiday for a lot of the summer and now we've done it and I can look forward to getting started at training on Monday."

Arsenal - French international centre-back Laurent Koscielny is negotiating a contract extension with the Gunners with bayern Munich throwing their hat into the ring for the 30-year-old's services. Perhaps this is a rumour to put pressure on Arsenal for a better deal?

Transfers and signings on the opening day of the Summer Transfer Window included:

Nolito to Manchester CityZlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United, Andros Townsend to Crystal PalaceJoel Matip and Steven Mandanda to LiverpoolChristian Kabasele and Troy Deeney (new contract) to Watford, Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie to Newcastleand Stekelenburg to Everton, Callum Wilson (new contract) to Bournemouth.
