dost wolfsSunderland keeping tabs on Dost

According to the Sunderland Echo, Bas Dost is a possible summer signing for Sunderland.

The Wolfsburg forward has been linked with Newcastle United for the past two years, but he could be set to join their local rivals Sunderland instead, with their coach Sam Allardyce targeting Dost as a back up option should their move for West Ham’s Diafra Sakho fall through.

Fiorentina in negotiations for Ajax defender

According to Di Marzio, Fiorentina have opened negotiations with Ajax over defender Joel Veltman.

Ajax have reportedly slapped a modest €8 million asking price on the Dutch international, but this is reportedly still too steep for the Viola, who are keen to add a centre back to their ranks. Fiorentina are hoping that Ajax drop their demands, or they will look at other options.

Vilhena talking to Espanyol

According to Spanish Radio station Rac1, Tonny Vilhena is in advanced talks with La Liga side Espanyol.

The midfielder is a free agent after leaving Feyenoord and has reportedly seen a move to Inter Milan already break down, while he held talks with Olympiacos last week.

Vilhena’s demands are believed to be a major stumbling block for most clubs with Hamburg and Marseille pulling out of the running for financial reasons. It remains to be seen whether Espanyol will be the club to satisfy the Dutch international.

Gutierrez set to leave Twente for Betis

FC Twente midfielder Felipe Gutierrez is close to leaving the club to sign for Spanish side Real Betis, with the deal expected to be completed in the next few days.

It will probably kick start a number of departures from Twente this summer, with the club needing to generate funds from the selling of stars such as Gutierrez, Hakim Ziyech and Kamohelo Mokotjo to ensure they keep their finances in check.

One player who could be coming into Twente if Joey van den Berg, who is a free agent after leaving Heerenveen. The midfielder has held initial talks with Twente, but the move is on hold until some players are sold.
