Summer Transfer Gossip: Wilfried Zaha, Miralem Pjanic, Andre Villas-Boas

0 of 6

    In today's edition of the summer transfer gossip, we check in on Tottenham's summer plans, Borussia Dortmund's latest target and the revolving door at Loftus Road.

    Who's targeting Gareth Barry in a bid to save him from his Manchester City nightmare?

    Which cheeky club are looking to steal a march and loan the prodigious Wilfried Zaha?

    Read on for the answers to these, and more. 

Tottenham

1 of 6

    According to The Metro, Tottenham have put 10 players up for sale as Andre Villas-Boas reshapes his squad for next season.

    Yes, you read that right—10 players.

    Scott Parker and Tom Huddlestone are among those named, while Jermain Defoe and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are thought to be in the contingent too.

    Spurs have a lot of fringe players on big contracts, but we'll leave you to decide if this is the correct method being carried out.

    One unexpected name on the list could turn out to be AVB himself, who is a target of Paris Saint-Germain if The Daily Mail's report is accurate.

Dieumerci Mbokani

    Premier League hopes of landing Dieumerci Mbokani appear to be dashed, as Sky Sports suggest the Congolese striker is set to go to Dynamo Kiev.

    Hull City and Fulham were reported to have signaled interest, with the former supposedly having an €8 million bid knocked back. The player will sign his contract after returning from international duty.

    After plying his trade at Anderlecht for several years, the big, burly striker felt it was time for a change. 

Wilfried Zaha

    According to Joe Mewis of The Mirror, West Ham could be set to irritate Crystal Palace immensely by asking for Wilfried Zaha on loan.

    The winger, who has joined Manchester United and is set to begin his career there on July 1, has been the subject of interest from his boyhood club, who also borrowed him for the latter half of last season.

    Sam Allardyce appears determined to do his business on the cheap so he can afford one particular target... 

Miralem Pjanic

    Miralem Pjanic is wanted by Borussia Dortmund, according to Bosnian radio station Radio Sarajevo, via InsideFutbol.com.

    Dortmund have lost their No. 10 in Mario Goetze and are still searching for his replacement, while the current AS Roma playmaker has had a tough time with injuries of late.

    If it's a cut-price deal, then BVB might be onto one of the bargains of the summer here.

Gareth Barry

    Remember that Tottenham culling we spoke about? Well, this could be one of the first faces in to replace the dead weight.

    Gareth Barry has emerged as a £4 million target for Andre Villas-Boas, according to an exclusive in The Express.

    The arrival of Fernandinho has cast doubt over the midfield maestro's position, and he could be set for a departure. Providing the wages are right, Spurs could face some competition. 

Quick Kicks

    According to talkSPORT, Montpellier are interested in taking Djibril Cisse off Queens Park Rangers' hands.

    Russian outlet Izvestia, via SoccerNews.com, have suggested Odil Akhmedov of Anzhi Makhachkala is a target for Premier League titans Arsenal.

    Sky Sports believe there is a tonne of interest in out-of-contract Antolin Alcaraz, who will leave Wigan Athletic this summer and have his pick of clubs.

    The London Evening Standard believe West Ham will complete the permanent capture of Andy Carroll next week for approximately £15 million.

    Melbourne Victory star Mark Milligan is a target for QPR, according to Sky Sports.
