Here are five English Premier League summer transfer window deals reported by the media.
This article will access the validity of the rumour; tell you what the footballer's strengths are and examine what he can offer to the club in question.
Don’t hesitate to comment below with your thoughts.
According to talkSPORT, Newcastle United and West Ham United are vying with Barcelona for the services of Toulouse defender Aymen Abdennour.
The Tunisian international is a highly touted prospect at the back: good passer (completes 86.1 percent of his passes), strong in the air and asserts himself on the game.
One concern is his tendency to commit needless fouls and his tackles to free kicks conceded (45 to 34) isn't flash.
He is Toulouse's MVP, according to L'Équipe's player ratings.
Newcastle is a realistic destination as they need another centre-back.
Fabricio Coloccini is longing for a return to Argentina (per Nicholas McGee at Goal.com); Steven Taylor is always an injury-worry; the club can do better than Michael Williamson and James Perch.
Possibly, Alan Pardew could have a Abdennour-Mapou and Yanga-Mbiwa partnership, which should ensure the Toon having a top-half rated defence—as opposed to the team that has let in 52 goals in 30 league games (even bottom placed Queens Park Rangers have conceded less goals; 48).
Moving on to West Ham United...
Do they want to persist with James Tomkins or upgrade to Abdennour?
James Collins is average, so it wouldn't be a big deal if he left.
Should Winston Reid continue to progress, he could be one of the best centre-backs in the league.
Newcastle's project would appeal more to Aymen than joining West Ham. Though, neither club have a chance if Barça coming calling.

Thomas Zocher at Sky Sport has cited sources in Germany which speculate that Chelsea and Manchester United are the Premier League clubs targeting Schalke wunderkind Julian Draxler.
The Bundesliga's approach in kicking out the old and punting on youth is the reason why myriads of young footballers like Draxler show world-class upside.
His talent is through the roof: has dribbled past multiple opposing players with consummate ease and has scored the same amount of league goals this season as Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (7).
Here's why the Blues shouldn't sign Julian: Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne , Lucas Piazón , Oscar, Victor Moses, Amin Affane , Marko Marin, Gaël Kakuta and Ryan Bertrand.
Draxler isn't going to be the deep-lying forward at United (Wayne Rooney, Shinji Kagawa) nor does he have a chance on the left with Danny Welbeck's athleticism and Kagawa's false 11 role being two factors that weigh heavily against Julian signing with MUFC.
 Been elite for Werder Bremen.
 Absolutely class for Málaga. Was £25 million necessary for Oscar considering the ability of Piazón and KDB?
 Technically marvelous footballer whose trademark in-swinging crosses were a sight to behold.
By some accounts, he was a deeply flawed human being hence why Roda took the drastic step in sending him back to CFC.

The Telegraph's John Percy believes Asmir Begović's suitors include Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
On his day, Begović is easily one of the Premier League's elite shot-stoppers.
Stoke City have already signed his replacement (Jack Butland).
Wojciech Szczęsny is Jens Lehmann 2.0 in that he's either really bad or world-class.
We kept players like Mannone, Almunia and Fabianski for years with no benefit. There is no way Szczesny is off after a few mistakes.— Big Friendly German (@ZineAFC) March 12, 2013
The Gunners will be priced out of Asmir, so they should be looking for a cheap backup, who can be a starter. In that regard, Bastia's Mickaël Landreau would be a sensible transfer target.
Asmir signing with the Blues makes sense if Thibaut Courtois (on loan at Atlético Madrid) doesn't want to wait till Petr Čech fizzles out.
Think about it: CFC don't have a reliable second choice GK; Begović's wage may triple and the club love to stockpile talent.
The only scenario where the Red Devils would buy Asmir is if David de Gea replaces Víctor Valdés at Barcelona, therefore giving the Bosnian the No. 1 role by default.
Paris Saint-Germain will grant Samir Nasri an escape route from Manchester City by signing the struggling Frenchman, according to Vic Peacock at The Sun.
Prior to becoming a City player, Samir was courted by PSG (per ESPN FC).
774 passes in league-play but only three assists. He has more yellow cards (2) than Premier League goals scored (1).
Rémy Cabella would be a way better transfer target for PSG than Samir.
City need to get rid of players who show no heart, no fight nor want to be the best—footballers like Nasri.
Manchester City will spend £52 million to sign the world's greatest pure No. 9 in Falcao, according to The Sunday People (from Tom Hopkinson and Dave Kidd at Mirror Football).
Do City really need to add an additional £4 million?
Atlético Madrid inserted a £48 million buy-out clause in the Colombian's contract (per Jeremy Wilson and Luke Edwards at The Telegraph).
Now, why would Atléti sell Falcao?
The £52 million would keep the Spanish club financially afloat (for the time being).
Carlos Tévez goes to bed dreaming about La Bombonera and Edin Džeko would jump at a chance to move back to the Bundesliga.
A Falcao-Sergio Agüero strike partnership would be a joy to watch.
