Another day and yet more transfer news to digest. Today’s rumours include both Tottenham and Manchester United as they make attempts to bolster their strike-forces ahead of next season.

Pav On The Move?

The Daily Mail reports that Stoke City are preparing a bid for Tottenham’s Roman Pavlyuchenko. The Potters managed to score just 34 goals last season and manager Tony Pulis is keen to add to his strike-force for next season. The Russian hitman was close to leaving White Hart Lane in January but stayed on to score some important goals during the second half of the season. Now Pulis is willing to splash out £11m on the striker, but Pav says he would prefer to stay at Spurs.

Spurs After Agbonlahor

Spurs want Aston Villa’s Gabriel Agbonlahor in a deal that could be worth £22m, according to Goal.com. Harry Redknapp is keen to change his striking options and has identified Agbonlahor as a possible target. The Spurs boss will offer Robbie Keane as part of the deal in a bid to reduce the transfer fee required to bring the pacey forward to White Hart Lane.

Utd End Striker Pursuit

Manchester United have been forced to end their pursuit of Ajax striker Luis Suarez because they cannot afford his £30m price tag, according to the Daily Star. Sir Alex Ferguson has kept a close eye on the Uruguayan for some time now and was prepared to table a bid this summer. But his plans have been dealt a blow due to the high asking price Ajax have set. Despite the Glazers claiming Fergie has money to spend, it seems the clubs debt may be restricting United’s transfer plans this summer and they look set to miss out on Suarez who bagged 35 goals in 33 league games last term.

Huntelaar Rejects Exit Talks

AC Milan striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar has declared he is not leaving the San Siro, according to Goal.com. The Dutch forward has been linked with a move to Tottenham in recent weeks after having a difficult season in Italy, scoring just 7 goals and managing just 25 appearances for Milan. This has lead to some suggesting he was looking for a way out of the Rossoneri, but Huntelaar says it’s all just paper talk.

“I see my name in the Italian newspapers and I don’t understand why. No other club interests me.”
