IMMOBILE CLAIMS JUVENTUS INTEREST

New Borussia Dortmund striker Ciro Immobile says Antonio Conte wanted him at Juventus earlier this summer. Juve owned part of his economic rights but let Dortmund sign him on a permanent deal. The 24-year-old was quoted as saying by La Repubblica: "I spoke with Conte and he wanted to take me back to Juventus. However, Juventus then reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund. In the end, they were the ones who made the final decision."

TOWNSEND TO SOUTHAMPTON?

Not if the Southern Daily Echo is to be believed. Southampton are keen on Tottenham winger Andros Townsend but will reportedly drop their interest in him if Spurs demand Morgan Schneiderlin in return. Schneiderlin played the full 90 minutes against Liverpool on Sunday and Saints boss Ronald Koeman reiterated for the bazillionth time after the game that he wants to keep the midfielder.

Team Woodward! A reminder: Ed has already spent more money this summer than Manchester United ever have in a transfer window. And that was also the case BEFORE the signing of Marcos Rojo. #TEAMWOODWARD

ANCELOTTI ON KHEDIRA

And here's what he had to say on Sami Khedira: "Khedira's situation is different than Di Maria's situation. He has just one more year to go on his current contract and he has only recently come back from a serious injury. We will see what happens, but he has not requested a transfer."

ANCELOTTI ON DI MARIA FUTURE

The Real Madrid coach said: "The player has requested a transfer this summer. He rejected the club's offer to stay at Madrid, so we are looking for a solution. We will find a solution for Di Maria before the end of the transfer window, but he remains a Madrid player for now. We are in a situation that the player has to fix himself. I'm surprised that it seems as if we are not all in agreement about the situation, but this is not the case. We are all on the same line here. If Di Maria cannot find a solution for his future, he will stay here. We embrace him and he can continue to work here. There's no problem."

EXCLUSIVE - DOST WANTS PREMIER LEAGUE MOVE

Q. Does Bas Dost have the shortest name in world football? Answer. Most certainly. The guy doesn’t even have a middle name! His full name is seven letters, for crying out loud! Anyway, the Wolfsburg striker's agent Gunter Neuhaus has told Goal: "Bas sees a step to the Eredivisie as a setback, so a transfer to a big competition is preferable. The Premier League, for example, is a league he wants to play in."

It's all happening at Real Madrid. It's also been confirmed by Carlo Ancelotti that Sami Khedira has rejected a new contract with the club. However, he has NOT asked to leave. The midfielder's contract expires at the end of the season, though - could Madrid be tempted to cash in now?

BARKLEY INJURY UPDATE

Away from the transfer talk, Everton manager Roberto Martinez has played down the extent of Ross Barkley's knee injury but says it could still rule him out for up to nine weeks. He said: "We all know it's a partial tear and that could take a very different time depending on the player and I'm sure, with Ross Barkley, it will take a little time - possibly between seven, eight, nine weeks."
