Read on to find out more.
Returning Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is at the forefront of the transfer speculation stories in the newspapers today.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is poised to make a club-record mark on the transfer market this summer, claims Rob Draper of the Mail on Sunday.
Wenger will spend £70 million this summer with Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and Lars Bender of Bayer Leverkusen in his sights, according to the report.
The Gunners qualified for the Champions League this season but again failed to win silverware for the eighth successive year.
But Wenger, who is now the longest-serving Premier League manager, is set for a move into the market for new players to boost hopes of ending the Gunners' trophy drought.
While Wenger and Arsenal build for the future, a current Gunner could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium, according to Carl Eldridge of the Daily Star Sunday.
Striker Gervinho is set to join Galatasaray in a £12 million deal, reports the newspaper, which will see him link up with fellow Ivory Coast internationals Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Eboue at the Turkish club.
Gervinho has had mixed fortunes since joining Arsenal from Lille for £10.8 million in 2011, scoring 11 times in 63 appearances for the North London club.
Tottenham will battle it out with Borussia Dortmund in a bid to secure the services of Brazilian youngster Bernard, according to Matt Law of the Sunday Mirror.
But the White Hart Lane club have also joined the chase for the 20-year-old in a bid to bolster their Champions League challenge next season.
Tottenham have also been linked with a move for Fulham winger Alex Kacaniklic in the same report.
However, Joe Bernstein of the Mail On Sunday believes Martinez is also targeting former Wigan forward Victor Moses in a £10 million deal from Chelsea.
Moses, 22, was signed by Roberto Di Matteo for the Stamford Bridge club last summer, but his future is unclear under new Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, according to the Mail On Sunday report.
