Erik Lamela to move to Porto? Arsenal in for Julian Draxler after Juve fail

Sid Lowe confirms that the Spanish centreback will stay at Madrid, despite rumours of a move to Manchester United; however ESPN FC's Craig Burley wonders how much value a reluctant player will have for the Spanish giants.

Tottenham could use a few more goals out of Erik Lamela, who has just four on the season in all competitions.
Erik Lamela has not set the world alight at Tottenham.
 

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: Erik Lamela set for Porto move

A juicy rumour from Portuguese newspaper Record: Porto are close to signing Tottenham winger Erik Lamela on loan with an option to make the deal permanent for €7.5 million.

Spurs paid £25.7m (yes, pounds) to sign Lamela from Roma less than two years ago. The Argentine midfielder has not impressed...

Arsenal need a better striker than Olivier Giroud to win the league

Olivier Giroud is set to pen a new deal that would keep him with the Gunners through 2018.

Being a football fan is a constant battle between logic and hope. Most of us are perfectly balanced, can recognise a good player -- and even more readily, a bad player -- when we see one. We can criticise our team just as clearly as any other, and leave blind loyalty at the door when it comes to objectively assessing the players in front of us.

But sometimes logic is swept aside, especially during preseason. We all know these games mean nothing, really. They're extended practice sessions that people...

Manuel Pellegrini right to sell Stevan Jovetic after failing to impress at City

Stevan Jovetic had an injury-hit two years at Manchester City before the club lost patience with him.

Stevan Jovetic will be remembered at Manchester City for his awful dress sense, Instagram posts and being injured.

The most disappointing aspect of his move to Inter Milan is the feeling he could have thrived at City had he not been injured so often. But he's been unavailable for so long, you can't blame Manuel Pellegrini for not trusting him anymore.

When the Montenegrin first arrived in the summer of 2013, it was as part of an exciting new line-up. He joined the club with Fernandinho, Alvaro Negredo...

Jose Mourinho pranks Chelsea staff with fake team-building exercise

With an upcoming friendly against Montreal Impact to prepare for, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho decided to warm-up (or should that be cool down?) beforehand by pranking members of his playing and backroom staff with a phoney team-building exercise.

The prank involved Mourinho lining up his victims on chairs and asking them to pretend they were sat on a bus, having them lean back and forth in unison while the evil Portuguese mastermind chose his moment to strike.

Sure enough, the signal came and the...

Fenerbahce face crucial Champions League qualifier vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Having signed for Fenerbahce from Manchester United, Robin Van Persie insisted he's thrilled by the opportunity, and will do everything he can to help them win trophies.

The 2014-15 season couldn't have ended in a more desperate fashion for Fenerbahce fans, who are used to experiencing an emotional roller coaster.

Having bullets fired at the team bus as it returned from a league fixture at Caykur Rizespor at the beginning of April left everyone connected to the club in a state of a deep shock. To make matters worse, Fenerbahce lost out on the title to bitter Istanbul rivals Galatasaray, despite beating them and Besiktas in a space of two weeks in March.

Those troubles,...

Steve McClaren hoping to breathe life into Newcastle this season

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reckons Newcastle boss Steve McClaren will be a mixture of hit and miss on Tyneside.

Newcastle endured an appalling season last time out, and new boss Steve McClaren is tasked with turning the club's fortunes around. Here's a look at what to expect from McClaren's men as we approach the new campaign.

Preview

After last season's near brush with relegation, fans want to see Newcastle giving it a proper go and getting the fans back onside with a few hard shifts.

Biggest concern

The lack of quality cover is there for all to see at Newcastle. This was a big factor last season, and the...
