Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has urged Arsene Wenger to splash the cash to bring new additions to the Emirates this summer.

The Gunners only business in the transfer market so far has been securing the services of 20-year-old forward Yaya Sanogo from Auxerre on a free transfer.

Chelsea forward Andre Schurrle feels confident ahead of the new campaign after Jose Mourinho's side extending their winning streak in pre-season.

The 22-year-old, a summer signing from Bayer Leverkusen, scored his first goal for the Blues in Sunday's International Champions Cup win over AC Milan. 

Dietmar Hamann has tipped Manchester City to 'run away with the Premier League' this season.

The former Germany midfielder expects all four of his old club's summer signings to make an 'immediate impact' at the Etihad Stadium, and claims Manuel Pellegrini has all the tools to turn City into a formidable force.

Wayne Rooney has not travelled with the Manchester United squad for a pre-season friendly in Sweden on Tuesday.

The England star, who was the subject of a second rejected bid from Chelsea this weekend, was expected to face AIK in Stockholm, but has been left behind due to a shoulder injury, according to United boss David Moyes.

Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Cardiff City.

The Premier League newcomers have already added former Spurs defender Steven Caulker, and want to follow up that capture with the £8million centre-back's old White Hart Lane team-mate.

Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina is honoured that Barcelona see him as a potential replacement for Victor Valdes when the shot-stopper leaves the Nou Camp at the end of his contract next year.

The 30-year-old was linked with a move to Spain this summer as there was uncertainty whether Valdes would see out his deal, but eventually left Liverpool on loan to be reunited with Rafa Benitez in Italy.
