Weekly Transfer news

Updated on May 19, 2014

David Luiz- From: Chelsea To: Barcelona

Barcelona have had their eye on Luiz for over a year now, and it seems they are now ready to seal the deal. Not seen to be massively in Mourinho's plans at Chelsea due to his complacency, Barcelona are ready to snap Luiz up for a fee of around £32 million. Barca's style of football playing out from the back will suit Luiz who has excellent technical ability.

Cristian Tello- From: Barcelona To: Liverpool

Cristian Tello is one of the many products of Barcelona's youth academy La Masia, but has found it tough to cement a spot in their first team. With Liverpool looking to bolster their already impressive front line, Tello would fit right in with his blistering pace and eye for goal. A fee of around £15 million is believed to be close enough to prize him away from Camp Nou.

Ilkay Gundogan- From: Borussia Dortmund To: Manchester United/Arsenal

Gundogan is a highly rated player with a number of clubs looking to secure his services this summer. It looks to be Manchester United and Arsenal leading the way in the race, both requiring a top class deep lying play-maker.

For Arsenal Arteta and Flamini are good but they aren't world class, and thats what they need to challenge for the title. The same goes for United, Carrick has past his best whereas Cleverly and Fellaini just simply aren't good enough. £25 million is the minimum fee Dortmund will be looking for.

Diego Costa- From: Atletico Madrid To: Chelsea

Lets be honest, we all know about this one but here it is anyway. With Mourinho publicly stating he needs and will buy a world class striker, Diego Costa looks to be the man to fit the bill. Costa is what you would expect from a typical 'English centre forward', strong, good in the air and very direct. His buyout clause is around £32 million, which Chelsea will recieve from the sale of David Luiz.

Karim Benzema- From: Real Madrid To: Arsenal

A lot of last seasons talk surrounded Arsenal and their lack of a natural goalscorer, which could have led them to the league title. Olivier Giroud has had quite a good season but in order for Arsenal to win the league they need a striker who can chip in with closer to 30 goals a season. Benzema is not the best finisher in Europe, but he can certainly find the back of the net, more so than Giroud. £25-30 million looks to be Madrid's asking price, but will Arsenal spend big again.
