Premier League club-by-club transfer latest: June 23

Sports Mole picks out the biggest transfer rumours and done deals from each of the 20 Premier League clubs.

In just over one week, the summer transfer window will officially be open for business.

As a result, the rumour mill has started to go into overdrive, particularly as players produce eye-catching performances at the World Cup in Brazil. Here, Sports Mole has rounded up the gossip involving each of the Premier League's 20 clubs.

Arsenal

The name on the lips of most Arsenal supporters at the moment is Mario Balotelli. The Gunners have been strongly linked with the former Manchester City striker, who is thought to have been made available for transfer by AC Milan. Indeed, Metro have claimed that Arsene Wenger is to meet with the 23-year-old's agent in Brazil this week.

Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall and Juventus winger Mauricio Isla could also arrive at the Emirates Stadium, while club captain Thomas Vermaelen has distanced himself from speculation that he could swap North London for Manchester United.

Aston Villa

In terms of both rumours and done deals, it's been a quiet past few days at Villa Park. Joe Cole and Philippe Senderos have already been recruited on free transfer ahead of the new campaign, while young striker Jordan Bowery has left for Rotherham United.

One player that is said to be of interest to manager Paul Lambert is Morgan Amalfitano, who spent last season on loan with West Bromwich Albion from French side Marseille.

Burnley

The big news for the promoted Clarets recently was that their manager Sean Dyche committed his future to the club by signing a new contract.

In terms of incomings and outgoings on the players front, though, it's been quiet. However, there could be a familiar face returning to Turf Moor in the form of Chris Eagles. The winger left Burnley for Bolton Wanderers in 2011, but he was released earlier this summer and one report has suggested that a return could be on the cards.

Chelsea

In recent weeks it's been positive news for Chelsea in the transfer market and that continued last Thursday when Paris Saint-Germain head coach Laurent Blanc conceded defeat in his side's pursuit of Eden Hazard. Also expected to stay at Stamford Bridge is young goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois following a three-year loan stint with Atletico Madrid.

Nevertheless, one player that could be on his way out of West London is Victor Moses. Five Premier League clubs, including West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United, are said to want to sign the Nigerian international on a season-long loan basis.

Crystal Palace

Co-chairman Steve Parish has revealed that Palace would be open to re-signing Wilfried Zaha from Man United just 12 months after the winger left Selhurst Park. Parish went on to confirm that Zaha is of interest to manager Tony Pulis, although the 21-year-old's future at Old Trafford is unclear.

The Eagles will face competition, though, for the services of Marouane Chamakh. The striker is out of contract with Palace next month and despite speculation that Pulis is eager to keep hold of the former Arsenal frontman, his agent has revealed that there are a number of clubs in the running.

Everton

After his impressive showings for Croatia at the World Cup, Ivan Perisic is said to be a target of Roberto Martinez. It's been claimed that the Toffees would be prepared to part with around £8m for the Wolfsburg winger. However, there may be a cheaper alternative in Palace's Yannick Bolasie, who would cost £5m less.

Someone that is keen to remain an Everton player is Steven Pienaar. The 32-year-old had been linked with a move away from Goodison Park, but he has expressed his desire to stay put.

Hull City

There was some positive news come out of Hull over the weekend when the FA Cup finalists announced that they had agreed a fee with Tottenham Hotspur to sign Jake Livermore on a permanent basis. It's expected that the midfielder will finalise the switch later this week.

He could be joined at the KC Stadium by Spurs teammate Michael Dawson, while Norwich City midfielder Robert Snodgrass is thought to be a £6m target.

Leicester City

Danny Drinkwater will definitely be a Leicester player next term, having signed a contract extension with the club that does not expire until the summer of 2018. His previous deal had been due to end next July.

In terms of arrivals at the King Power Stadium, though, it's been relatively quiet. A move for Feyenoord striker Graziano Pelle is said to be under consideration, with Southampton also interested, while Spartak Moscow centre-forward Yuri Movsisyan has claimed that clubs in England, one of which is believed to be Leicester, are keen on his services.

Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers will have been bracing himself for the speculation to start surrounding Luis Suarez's future at the club and now it has. Real Madrid have often been linked with the Uruguayan, but now Barcelona are said to have entered the running and are even prepared to offer Alexis Sanchez as a part of the deal to sign last season's leading goalscorer.

Rumours have also linked teenager Raheem Sterling with a switch to Madrid, while centre-back Sebastian Coates is keen to depart the club. As far as arrivals are concerned, former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is thought to be in Rodgers's thinking.

Manchester City

After just one year in England with City, numerous reports have claimed that centre-forward Alvaro Negredo is keen to return to Spain, with Atletico Madrid the favourites to secure his signature. Someone that won't be leaving, though, is Stevan Jovetic, who has insisted that he will stay at the Etihad Stadium.

Number one goalkeeper Joe Hart may find himself with some new competition for his place if recent reports are to be believed, with Manuel Pellegrini believed to be eager to sign Malaga stopper Willy Caballero.

Manchester United

A number of players have been tipped to leave United this summer and it appears that Alexander Buttner is at the front of the queue. The Dutch full-back has been in Russia over the weekend for discussions over a move to Dynamo Moscow. In contrast, after a rocky start to life with the club, Marouane Fellaini is determined to prove his worth, rather than leave.

Louis van Gaal is yet to make a signing as United boss, but that could soon change, with former Man City midfielder Nigel de Jong said to be high on his wishlist. There may also be interest in Arturo Vidal after the Juventus midfielder refused to commit his future to the Italian club.

Newcastle United

First it was on, then it was off, now, according to reports, Pierre-Michel Lasogga's proposed move to Newcastle from Hamburg is back on! It's believed that the Magpies will part with around £7m for the former Germany Under-21 international.

There might not be as positive news where the future of goalkeeper Tim Krul is concerned, though. It's believed that should Hugo Lloris opt to leave Spurs before the start of next season, the North Londoners have identified the Newcastle number one as the ideal replacement.

Queens Park Rangers

Harry Redknapp and transfer windows are usually the source for much drama and speculation, but rumours surrounding potential arrivals at Loftus Road have been relatively thin on the ground over recent days.

There could be some news on the exit front soon, with Stephane Mbia, who spent last season on loan in Spain with Sevilla, said to be of interest to both Liverpool and Everton.

Southampton

With Rickie Lambert gone, new manager Ronald Koeman will surely make signing a centre-forward one of his majority priorities on the South Coast. If recent reports are to be believed, an £8m offer has been submitted to Feyenoord for their striker Graziano Pelle.

Elsewhere, Adam Lallana remains a Southampton player, but in a bid to force through a move to Liverpool, it has been suggested that the England international may soon submit a transfer request. He could be followed out the exit door by Dejan Lovren, who has been courted by Tottenham.

Stoke City

With a couple of deals already concluded, Mark Hughes is bound to be happy with the business that he has done so far. Even so, it seems likely that the Welshman will be keen to make further additions before the opening day of the campaign.

Among those could be former Spain international Diego Capel, while a move for Livorno striker Paulinho is thought to have been plotted, despite interest in the frontman from the Middle East.

Sunderland

The major news on Wearside this week was the capture of goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon, who will become a free agent next month once his contract with Manchester City expires. However, the Romanian's arrival has thrown doubt over Vito Mannone's future at the club.

Fulham's Bryan Ruiz is another that is said to be on Gus Poyet's radar, but the Uruguayan boss may be on the lookout for a new captain after John O'Shea was linked with a surprise move to Tottenham.

Swansea City

According to reports, Swansea boss Garry Monk could be on the verge of making two signings. Spurs midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is said to have been informed that he can leave the club, while French striker Bafetimbi Gomis has all but signed a three-year contract at the Liberty Stadium.

Whether Michu will still be a Swansea player come the start of the season, though, remains to be seen. The Spaniard has been linked with a host of clubs in his homeland, as well as with Napoli, who are managed by former Liverpool and Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez.

Tottenham Hotspur

It had been quiet on the transfer front where Spurs were concerned, but suddenly the rumours have started to trickle through. Moves for Mexico defender Hector Moreno and Esteban Cambiasso have been mooted, as well as Dutch striker Memphis Depay.

Spurs have also been strongly credited with an interest in one-time Liverpool target Alberto Moreno. To make the deal happen, it's been suggested that Mauricio Pochettino is prepared to offer either Roberto Soldado or Etienne Capoue to Sevilla in exchange for the full-back.

West Bromwich Albion

Alan Irvine wasted little time in adding to his West Brom squad following his appointment as he convinced former England defender Joleon Lescott to turn down Hull City in favour of a switch to the Black Country. Lescott could also soon be joined at The Hawthorns by another Man City player - Jack Rodwell.

The wide areas of the pitch also appears to be where Irvine is keen to strengthen, with reports having claimed that both Kieran Richardson and Moses of Chelsea are under consideration.

West Ham United

Anderlecht midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate has become West Ham's second signing of the summer behind Mauro Zarate. The 24-year-old has agreed a four-year contract Upton Park.

Following the arrival of Kouyate, co-chairman David Sullivan revealed that the club are looking to recruit four more players, one of which could be Colombian international Eder Balanta.
