Napoli are reportedly interested in Wolves winger Adama Traore.

The Spanish wide man has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in Nuno's side since joining from Middlesbrough, and the Italian club could be keen to sign him.

Reports suggest that he Naples-based side want Hirving Lozano from PSV, and see Traore as another option should that deal fail to materialise.

Meanwhile, reports also claim that Huddersfield Town have made a move for Wolves' Ivan Cavaleiro.

The Terriers are preparing for their return to the second tier this season and reportedly like the look of the former Monaco man.

Wolves paid £7m for his services, with the forward impressing in the Championship, but his form in the Premier League has seen him utilised less regularly following promotion.

West Brom

Albion are reportedly close to sealing a deal for promising youngster Owen Windsor from Cirencester Town.

The 17-year-old can play on the wing or up front, and has impressed - with Chelsea another team reportedly eyeing up his progress.

The youngster managed six goals in seven league starts for Cirencester.

Elsewhere, it's being reported that Jonny Williams has been offered to West Brom alongside a host of other clubs in England.

The 25-year-old is set to see his contract expire this summer, meaning he's able to join a new club for free.

Swansea, Brentford, Luton and Derby all join Albion in reportedly being offered the Wales international.

Aston Villa

Aston Villa reportedly want to sign Celta Vigo star Maxi Gomez this summer.

The 22-year-old is an out and out striker, scoring 13 goals last season for the La Liga side as well as notching five assists.

The Uruguayan is likely to cost quite a bit this summer though, with some reports suggesting Celta Vigo would accept an offer of no less than £35m for his services.

Blackburn Rovers are reportedly interested in bringing Glenn Whelan to Ewood Park following his release from Aston Villa.

Whelan played a major role at B6 last season, but departed following Villa's promotion to the top flight.

It's still believed that a return to Stoke City is Whelan's most likely course of action this summer, however.


Walsall are amongst a host of clubs reportedly interested in signing former Newcastle United defender Stefan O'Connor this summer.

The 22-year-old is now without a club having departed the Magpies upon the expiration of his contract.

He's best placed at centre-back, but can also play right back given the chance.
