Chelsea make shock move for Spurs defender Rose, Man Utd want Pepe

Danny Rose could be set to move to the other side of London.

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to all the latest rumours and gossip. See all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Chelsea make shock Rose move

Just as everyone in the football world expected Augsburg left-back Baba Rahman to show up at Stamford Bridge clutching a Blues jersey, Chelsea have made a surprise bid for Tottenham's Danny Rose.

According to the Mirror, Chelsea have asked Spurs to name their price for Rose and are believed to be willing...

In the Premier League, Aston Villa can't afford to be much worse this season

ESPN FC TV's Craig Burley looks at Aston Villa's prospects for the season ahead.

In the past four seasons Aston Villa have finished 16th, 15th, 15th and 17th; just two, five, five and three points above the relegation zone respectively. Even a minor drop in performance for 2015-16 will surely bring the club's first relegation since 1986/87, which is worrying because Villa start the campaign in a very uncertain state.

That uncertainty applies for both manager and squad. We're now accustomed to Tim Sherwood being one of the Premier League's major characters, yet the reality is...

Edin Dzeko frustrated and delighted but was key in Man City's title wins

The ESPN FC crew give their opinions on who will win the Premier League this season, and while predictions vary, everyone agrees that Chelsea will be the side to beat.
Manchester City look ready to part ways with Edin Dzeko, as a 20 million Euro bid from Roma seems imminent.

Edin Dzeko's career at Manchester City is living proof that physicist Erwin Schrodinger was correct when he said that things can exist in directly contradictory states at the same time. The footballing equivalent of his cat has been the Bosnian who, over the past four-and-a-half seasons, has been both brilliant and frustrating at the same time.

There's no getting away from it: When Dzeko is good, he's almost unplayable. But when he's bad, he's downright awful. Nearly all the time, though, he will...

2015-16 Ligue in 1 -- five burning questions that will shape the season

Former French international Frank LeBouef discusses the expectations for Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the 2015/16 Ligue 1 season.

Ligue 1 returns on Friday, as champions Paris Saint-Germain travel to Lille. The Parisians are again favourites in France, as they take aim at a fourth consecutive league title.

Whether anyone will be able to stop PSG will be Ligue 1's over-arching story, but there are several other key questions that will have serious effects in French football in 2015-16.

Will the gambles pay off?

The biggest transfer of the summer in France is without doubt the pending arrival of Angel Di Maria to PSG, but there...

Football's zaniest characters - Ibrahimovic, Alves, Luiz, Balotelli

Football can, on occasion, be taken a little too seriously. Thank goodness, then, for the stars who bring a smile to fans' faces.

We've picked 10 of the most eccentric players still plying their trade.

Dani Alves

Barcelona and Brazil right-back Dani Alves wears his heart on his sleeve when on the pitch, and while off it, he's not afraid to push the boundaries of fashion.

Andrey Arshavin

Former Russia and Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin is not one to take football too seriously, as evidenced by the way he often plays the game with a shrug of the shoulders.

Mario Balotelli

Mario Balotelli why always me
Whether he's driving his camouflage car around town or revealing his latest goal celebration, Liverpool and Italy striker Mario Balotelli is never too far away from making the headlines.

Antonio Cassano

Here's a photograph of Antonio Cassano celebrating Italy's 2-0 win over France in Euro 2008. That is all.

Emmanuel Eboue

Any changing room that includes former Arsenal wing-back Emmanuel Eboue (left and top right) is unlikely to be a dull one. Speaking of Arsenal, we would be remiss not to mention the ego of Nicklas Bendtner (left) and the outspoken Emmanuel Frimpong (bottom right). What a trio.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The thing about Zlatan Ibrahimovic is that he's so imposing that whether you find a joke he's made funny or not, you'd still force a laugh. And there's always a possibility that the self-assured PSG and Sweden star was not actually joking.

Stephen Ireland

Former Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland has owned a £100,000 fish tank. He has also dropped his shorts when celebrating a goal.

David Luiz

Incident rarely seems far away from David Luiz when he and his excellent haircut are on the field for PSG or Brazil. When the Ligue 1 champions paid Chelsea £50 million for his signature, they certainly landed an absorbing character, as well as an unpredictable defender.

Thomas Muller

Muller Thomas lederhosen crowd
Thomas Muller takes his football very seriously. You only need to watch him wildly celebrate a tap in to see that. When the final whistle has blown, though, his more jovial side comes to the fore, and you may find him donning lederhosen or rallying the Bayern crowd with a microphone.

Alex Song

Just look at those light-up shoes (bottom right) on Alex Song and tell us you wouldn't look forward to his arrival at training each day.

Wayne Rooney leads Man United into the new season with high hopes

Wayne Rooney talks exclusively to ESPN FC about leadership and captaincy.

THE FIRST THING you notice when Wayne Rooney walks into the room is his physique. Three months short of his 30th birthday, the Manchester United captain looks lean and focused as he prepares to lead his side into the 2015-16 season. Some footballers, especially in pre-season, are bouncy and over-excitable, like kids on their first day back at school. Rooney is more like a boxer before a big fight. He's polite, but businesslike. He wants to get started.

"I'm as hungry to do things and win things...
