An offer of £25m remains on the table for Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana, while his erstwhile team-mate Ricky Lambert has already been recruited.
The striker is expected to be followed by Can as Liverpool last night activated a £9.5m release cause in his contract. The club are interested too in Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno but face a challenge from Tottenham Hotspur.
Philippe Senderos last night left London behind, though, after securing a move from Fulham to Aston Villa. Former Chelsea defender Alex has, meanwhile, agreed to sign for AC Milan after leaving Paris Saint-Germain. Milan also want winger Jeremy Menez.
