Barry free to Arsenal, Lampard to stay at Chelsea?

Rumours, gossip, transfer news and signings from all of the top European clubs. It's Transfer Talk time.

Barry on Arsenal radar

This might not be a rumour to get the pulses racing at Arsenal, but there is every chance that Gareth Barry would prove a shrewd acquisition should he join the Gunners this summer.

The 33-year-old impressed during his loan spell at Everton and will be available on a free transfer when his contract at Manchester City expires next month.

According to the Daily Star, Everton are desperate to snap up Barry on a permanent deal, but Arsene Wenger is also interested as he looks to bolster his midfield options.

Meanwhile, the Daily Express reports that Tottenham are rivalling Arsenal's interest in Alvaro Morata. The striker is expected to leave Real Madrid, where he has struggled for first-team chances, and looks set to find himself at the centre of a north London tug-of-war.

M'Baye of the season?

After he was told to improve West Ham's attacking fortunes, Sam Allardyce is looking to strengthen his forward line with a loan move for AC Milan youngster M'Baye Niang.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a relatively successful loan spell at Montpellier this year, but is surplus to requirements at the San Siro after scoring only two goals following his move from Caen in 2012.

West Ham owner David Sullivan revealed this week that the club already have "five or six players lined up", the youngest of which "is 19 but has already played top-level football in two countries", and Niang would certainly fit the profile of this mystery man.

If he impresses during a temporary spell at Upton Park, the Daily Express claims the striker could seal a permanent switch for around 4 million pounds.

Roma eye Lloris

It looks like Tottenham face a fight to hold on to Hugo Lloris, as Roma reportedly hope to lure the goalkeeper to the Stadio Olimpico with the promise of Champions League football.

The France number one has been tipped for an exit from Spurs after expressing his disappointment at a difficult campaign, and he could now be given an escape route by compatriot Rudi Garcia.

The Roma manager is keen to replace his current shot-stopper Morgan de Sanctis, 37, and The Mirror claims Lloris has been made top priority.

Ashley Cole's time at Chelsea is done, but the door is open for Frank Lampard to spend another season at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard's future up in the air

Frank Lampard will be hoping to put himself in the shop window at the World Cup after being named on Chelsea's list of released players along with Ashley Cole and Samuel Eto'o.

However, while the 35-year-old's two teammates seem certain to pursue new challenges elsewhere, Lampard may still have a future at Stamford Bridge if he can agree terms on a new one-year deal.

The England international has previously been linked with a move to LA Galaxy, but the Daily Star says Jose Mourinho is keen for him to stay even though he no longer considers the midfielder first-choice.

The Star adds that Felipe Luis has joined Diego Costa on Mourinho's shortlist, with the Blues boss hoping to conclude a 48-million-pound double swoop for the Atletico Madrid pair following the Champions League final.

Keepy-uppies

• Manchester City's move for out-of-contract Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has paved the way for Micah Richards to leave the Etihad Stadium in the summer. Liverpool lead the race for the 25-year-old as Brendan Rodgers prepares to slap in a bid of 7 million pounds.

• Stoke are keeping tabs on Aaron Hunt after the forward confirmed his intention to leave Werder Bremen. Hunt denied talk of a transfer to Turkey earlier this month, but revealed that he expects to end his stay in the Bundesliga. "I have not agreed anything with Besiktas and it is likely I will not be joining them," he told Bild. "Anyway, it is very likely I will join a foreign club. I still have not made my decision yet."

• You can't say that Daniel Levy isn't optimistic following reports that the Tottenham chairman is holding out for Carlo Ancelotti in his pursuit of a new manager. According to The Mirror, Levy is waiting on the outcome of the Champions League final to learn Ancelotti's fate and, should the Italian end up leaving Real Madrid, the Spurs supremo is ready to swoop. Both Mauricio Pochettino and Frank de Boer have been listed as alternatives for the Tottenham job, but Levy has made it clear that Ancelotti is his main target.
