Wolves are reportedly eyeing a move for Dundee man Glen Kamara.

Burnley, Celtic and Rangers are all thought to be keen on the 22-year-old midfielder after an impressive set of showings over the course of last season.

Able to play in a defensive role, Kamara is a Finnish international who made 46 appearances north of the border last season, registering two assists.

Another midfielder reportedly of interest to Wolves is Juventus' Stefano Sturaro.

The Italian is being linked away from Turin this summer, with West Ham and Newcastle two other reported destinations.

Reports in Italy claim that Juventus will be open to letting him leave in an effort to recoup some of the cash they this week splashed on Cristiano Ronaldo.


West Brom

West Brom are reportedly chasing Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe.

The 25-year-old attacker has played across Leeds' front line in recent years, scoring 14 goals last season for the Yorkshire club.

Roofe began his career at Albion as a youngster, and with the futures of Salomon Rondon and Jay Rodriguez still in question, Darren Moore could need to bring in reinforcements ahead of the start of the season.


Liverpool are set for a shock move for former Albion loanee Grzegorz Krychowiak, according to reports.

The Polish star failed to impress during West Brom's disastrous relegation season, and has return to PSG - but is likely to be shipped out of the French capital this summer.

Jurgen Klopp reportedly sees the 28-year-old as a replacement for Emre Can, who left Anfield earlier this summer.

Aston Villa

Steve Bruce could be deterred from making a loan move for Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson, with the Reds likely to fine a club if they fail to play him regularly enough whilst on loan.

Villa are amongst a collection of teams all interested in the winger, but if Klopp has his way, a club could pay the price for not playing him as much as he'd like.

Villa's financial situation could mean that they won't risk a move for the 21-year-old if a fine could be issued.

Newcastle and Leeds are eyeing up Villa striker Jonathan Kodjia after boss Steve Bruce admitted he would need to be sold this summer.

Leeds have cooled their interest in Derby Country striker Matej Vydra after baulking at his excessive wage demands.

Newcastle are on the hunt for a striker this summer and are also interested in Albion’s Salomon Rondon, who has a £16.5m release clause.


Walsall boss Dean Keates has confirmed his interest in signing former Wrexham defender Olly Marx.

A number of clubs elsewhere are all interested in the youngster.

Alongside Marx, Keates is believed to be on the hunt for two other centre-backs ahead of the new season.
