Goal understands Neil Warnock will be announced as the new Crystal Palace manager. #SHOCKER! The 65-year-old, who managed the club between 2007 and 2010, has been out of football since leaving Leeds in April 2013 but is now set to replace Tony Pulis at Selhurst Park. More info below.
Crystal Palace to appoint Warnock
Goal's Greg Stobart: "Tottenham are expecting a busy end to the transfer window, with a number of players potentially leaving the club as Mauricio Pochettino looks to trim his squad. Vlad Chiriches, Sandro, Paulinho and Lewis Holtby are among the players who could be sold before the window closes next Monday."
Goal understands Tottenham are closing in on the signing of defender Federico Fazio from Sevilla. The Argentine is due to arrive in London today and will sign a four-year contract at White Hart Lane after Spurs agreed to pay his £8 million buyout clause. They had initially targeted Villarreal's Mateo Musacchio but the move broke down over third-party complications.
Tottenham set to sign Fazio
His No.10 shirt has been taken away and he's been made to train with the reserves, but you don't get rid of Hatem Ben Arfa that easily! The Newcastle Evening Chronicle says the Frenchman is happy to stay at St James' Park despite being frozen out by Alan Pardew.
Transfer Talk: Ben Arfa happy to stay
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Mario Balotelli is in line to make his first appearance away to Tottenham on Sunday. He told the club's official website: "We've done some analysis on him. The medical and sports science team have worked with him already and he's in very, very good condition. He's in to work and he'll be available for the squad for the weekend."
Balotelli set to face Tottenham
Goal understands Newcastle have made signing QPR's Loic Remy and Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette their main priorities before Monday's transfer deadline. They had hoped to sign Danny Welbeck but accept that he is likely to move elsewhere if he leaves Manchester United. Re-signing Remy is seen as a viable option, while interest in Lacazette is set to be reignited after talks over a new deal with Lyon stalled.
Newcastle keen on Remy and Lacazette
He was a surprise starter in the 2-0 win over Cordoba on Monday, but Alvaro Arbeloa could still reportedly leave Real Madrid. According to El Chiringuito, the defender is unhappy at criticism from supporters and is keen to find a new club over the next week.
Transfer Talk: Arbeloa wants Madrid exit
Now this is just silly. Cristiano Ronaldo... Gareth Bale... Karim Benzema... James Rodriguez... AND Marco Reus? Yikes. According to AS, Real Madrid are battling Barcelona and Atletico Madrid to sign the Borussia Dortmund star. The Bundesliga side would rather sell to a foreign club to avoid losing yet another player to Bayern Munich.
Transfer Talk: Real battle for Reus
Hull manager Steve Bruce says the club will not be signing Jordan Rhodes in the final week of the transfer window. Bruce had targeted the striker as a replacement for Shane Long but Blackburn are unwilling to sell. He said: "It's not going to happen with Jordan, and that's disappointing for everyone, but especially for Jordan. It's dead and buried, and that's Blackburn's prerogative."
Danny Welbeck played the full 90 minutes as Manchester United were embarrassed 4-0 by MK Dons in the League Cup - but what does the future hold for him? Arsenal and Tottenham are among the clubs to have been heavily linked with the £15 million-rated forward. Check out our scouting report...
Scouting Report: Danny Welbeck
Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish wanted somebody in place as soon as possible when Tony Pulis departed a day before the start of the new season. For various reasons - #friendlytextmessagebanter - that hasn't happened and they now face a struggle to find a new manager before the transfer deadline. The Daily Telegraph claims Steve Clarke is now in the running but faces competition from ex-Palace boss Neil Warnock.
ALREADY?!? He's only been back in the Premier League for two days, but Mario Balotelli may already be causing problems for his new club over where he wants to live. Liverpool would rather he was based in Formby, close to the club and some of his new team-mates, including Steven Gerrard, but Balotelli wants to live closer to Manchester. Uh-oh...
Are Balotelli and Liverpool on a collision course?
QPR are expected to sign defender Bressan from Gremio, according to the 21-year-old's agent. Marcelo Lipatin told Globo Esporte: "A proposal was made [by QPR] that matches what we expected. But we are still waiting for the club to make an official offer. But the way things are going, [the transfer] will probably happen, all parties have reached an agreement."
QPR expected to complete Bressan deal
Samuel Eto'o is currently being presented as an Everton player after joining the club late last night on a two-year deal. You can watch the press conference below, but here's what he had to say on Jose Mourinho: "The only thing I have to say to Jose Mourinho is that I have to thank him because it’s down to him that I’ve integrated to the Premier League."
And to complete the Arsenal striker recap, The Guardian reckons Loic Remy is at the top of their shortlist. The QPR striker failed a medical at Liverpool earlier this summer but that doesn't appear to have put Arsene Wenger off. So, to recap, Arsenal are apparently interested in: Remy, Cavani, Falcao and... ZIGIC.
Transfer Talk: Remy tops Arsenal shortlist

The Arsenal striker rumours continue. According to the Daily Telegraph, Arsene Wenger is considering taking Monaco's Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan deal for a fee of - wait for it - £20 million! For a loan deal?! Game's gone! The good news is that Falcao is reportedly interested in making the move. So, without wanting to go all Woodward, I think we should WATCH THIS SPACE...
Transfer Talk: Arsenal consider Falcao loan
Now we're talking! The Daily Express reports that Arsenal are ready to launch a £50 million bid to Paris Saint-Germain for Edinson Cavani. The Gunners are in the market for a new striker, with Olivier Giroud sidelined for the next four months, but could they really spend so big late in the window for the second year running?
Transfer Talk: Arsenal to launch £50m Cavani bid
No, according to Mundo Deportivo. Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is reportedly not interested in signing Juan Cuadrado if the Colombian is unwilling to play at right-back, which he does not want to do. Now's your chance, Ed! Time's-a-ticking...
