Newcastle are reportedly set to bid a whopping £36m for Hoffenheim striker Joelinton - a man previously linked with Wolves.

The Brazilian striker netted 11 goals and nine assists last season and is being tipped with a move to the Premier League this summer.

Wolves are in need of a striker to compete with Raul Jimenez up front.

Wolves are close to a deal to sign Lazio centre back Wallace, according to reports.

The defender is apparently 'close' to a move to Molineux this summer on-loan with a view to a permanent deal.

The 24-year-old is best utilised in a central position and could provide some extra depth to Nuno's back line.


West Brom

Former West Brom midfielder James Morrison is reportedly a target for Aberdeen, Hibs and Hearts.

The 33-year-old left Albion over the summer as his contract came to an end and is now open to offers from new clubs.

Morrison made more than 300 appearances for the Baggies, scoring 32 times.


Meanwhile, Charlie Austin has reportedly snubbed a move to West Brom and will play out his contract at Southampton this season.

The striker is out of contract next summer, with reports previously claiming that an exit was likely before August.

However, now it appears that he could leave St Mary's for nothing next summer.

Aston Villa

Daniel Sturridge is reportedly unwilling to make a move to Aston Villa this summer.

Villa have been tipped by the bookies to sign the striker, as they still seek signings ahead of their Premier League campaign.

Inter Milan have reportedly turned down the chance to sign the striker.

Villarreal winger Alfonso Pedraza has turned down a move to Villa, according to reports.

The winger was reportedly linked with a move to B6, but has instead opted to stay in Spain.

The 23-year-old winger previously spent time at Leeds, and is best used on the left flank.


No fresh Walsall rumours.
