QPR complete the signing of David Wheeler

Queens Park Rangers have completed the signing of Exeter midfielder David Wheeler. The tricky winger leaves St James’ Park after four years with the club, and helped lead them to last seasons League Two play off final where they lost out to Blackpool. 

Wheeler chipped in with 21 goals in all competitions last season and with that tally, he was the clubs top scorer. If he can repeat this feat for QPR then he could prove to be a huge asset. Alongside his scoring ability, Wheeler offers versatility as he can play a number of positions including up front and wing back.

Wheeler completes his move to QPR for an undisclosed fee, and will have to adapt to life in the Championship, but if he settles in and shows the form he has shown for Exeter City he is sure to be a fans favourite.

Where will this Chile international be come 11pm tonight?

Alexis Sanchez has been at the heart of the transfer news over the past few days, and his future at Arsenal remains up in the air.

Manchester City tabled a £50m bid for the Chile international earlier this week, but Arsenal turned that down and the Citizens have yet to come back with a second bid, despite reports saying that they are very keen on landing Sanchez.

Rumours earlier in the week were that winger Raheem Sterling was going to be used as part of the deal to lure Sanchez to the Etihad, but those rumours were quickly knocked back by City, saying that he was not going to be leaving the football club.

With over 12 hours of the transfer window left, it remains to be seen where Sanchez will end up come 11pm this evening.

Manchester City fans do you need Alexis Sanchez? If he were to sign where would he fit in? Let us know in the comments section below…

Swansea should turn their attentions to this former striker

Swansea City have made a decent start to their Premier League campaign. After claiming a terrific draw on the road against Southampton on the opening day, the Swans were then beaten at home by Manchester United, but responded in terrific fashion as they went to Selhurst Park and beat Crystal Palace 2-0.

After losing their star player Gylfi Sigurdsson earlier on in the window to Everton, the club have been trying to identify targets to bring in. Reports circulating are that Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches will be coming into the club to replace Sigurdsson, but in other news it seems like Chelsea are looking to take Spanish striker Fernando Llorente to Stamford Bridge.

The striker played a vital role in Swansea surviving in the Premier League last season scoring 15 goals in just 33 games, but will the lure of playing for the current Premier League champions and going to play under Antonio Conte be too tempting?

If Llorente is to leave the Liberty Stadium, then the Swans should turn their attentions to former striker Wilfried Bony.

Wilfried Bony – The Ivory Coast striker joined Manchester City from Swansea in 2015, but has struggled for regular game time at the Etihad Stadium having made just 36 Premier League appearances for the Citizens.

His last season at the Liberty stadium saw him score 11 goals and many Swansea fans were disappointed to see him leave the club.

Having fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City, Bony is going to struggle to get a run in the first team so a move back to South Wales could help him rekindle his form and also help Swansea this season push on up the Premier League.

Swansea City fans would you like to see Wilfried Bony back in a Swansea shirt? Would he be the ideal replacement for Fernando Llorente if he were to leave? Let us know in the comments section below…

Will Fulham land this Premier League striker?

Fulham have been heavily linked with Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle, following the departure of Sone Aluko who joined Reading on a four year deal. 

With the London outfit selling Aluko it leaves them with five strikers on their books, but manager Slavisa Jokanovic appears to want to bolster his ranks ahead of the transfer window shutting on Thursday.

Fulham have started the season with a record of 1 win, 3 draws and 1 defeat and are currently 14th place in the Championship table. Jokanovic will be hoping that he can guide the club to promotion this season, after losing in the play-off semi finals last term to Reading.

The club are going to need to improve their goal scoring tally so far this season, as they have only found the back of the net on 4 occasions in 5 games and this is obviously the thinking of Jokanovic as the club are linked with prolific Championship goal scorer Dwight Gayle.

Dwight Gayle – The striker scored 23 goals in 34 games for Newcastle last term in the Championship but was left out the squad for last Saturdays match against West Ham, which started the rumours that he would leave St James’ Park in this transfer window.

One stumbling block for Fulham, could be that Newcastle are looking for in the region of £20m for the striker, but if they want to add quality to their ranks they are going to have to stump up the money.

Having gained promotion with Newcastle last term, Gayle knows what it takes to help get a club out of the Championship and could prove to be a terrific signing if Fulham get the deal done on deadline day.

Fulham fans would you like to see Gayle sign for you? Can he fire you to the Premier League? Let us know in the comments below…

The replacement for Gylfi Sigurdsson?

Swansea City are confident of completing a season long loan deal for Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Renato Sanches.

After parting with Gylfi Sigurdsson earlier in the transfer window, Swansea have been on the look out for his replacement ever since and it looks like Sanches will be that man. Having worked with Paul Clement during the Swansea manager’s time at Bayern Munich as assistant manager, both parties will know how each other work and could prove to a terrific signing for the club.

Having joined Bayern Munich from Benfica in May 2016, Sanches struggled for a run in the team last campaign and there has been much speculation throughout the summer that the Portuguese star would be moving away from the Allianz Arena.

Sanches was apart of the Portuguese national team that won Euro 2016 and would be a real coup for Swansea, should they get the deal done.

Swansea City fans would you like to see Renato Sanches join your club? Is he the ideal replacement for Gylfi Sigurdsson? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
