QPR landed Blackburn forward Junior Hoilett as they aim to solidify their place in the top-flight, while James Collins completed his switch to West Ham from Aston Villa and Newcastle signed Australian youngster Curtis Good on a six-year deal.
Elsewhere, transfer sagas involving Robin van Persie, Andy Carroll and Emmanuel Adebayor continue to rumble on, while Arsene Wenger looks to continue his summer overhaul at the Emirates.
Now, in the latest edition of Goal.com's weekly feature, we take a look at the best, the worst and the simply ridiculous of this week's transfer rumours.
Agger the dagger to Rodgers' Reds plan
Daniel Agger’s Liverpool spell could be coming to an end if you believe reports emerging in The Mirror last weekend, with Manchester City launching a £13 million bid for the centre-back.
While the offer was rejected according to the Daily Star, the Premier League champions are not the only side to be interested in the 27-year-old’s services, with Barcelona and Real Madrid also believed to be waiting in the wings.
Speculation over an Anfield exit was further compounded when Agger was left out of the Reds' Europa League squad for Thursday night’s 1-0 victory over FC Gomel, with the player’s agent revealing that the Denmark international was fit enough to feature in Belarus.While his representative rubbished suggestions that Agger had handed in a transfer request on Merseyside, he did add that he had not heard from Liverpool with regards a contract extension.
Arsenal up the Santi
Arsene Wenger’s summer revolution at Arsenal shows little sign of let-up with the Gunners expected to tie up a deal for Malaga midfielder Santi Cazorla in the coming days.
The deal had been anticipated to be concluded by Wednesday of this week, but a last-minute hitch over the transfer fee threatened to disrupt the deal, only for the north London side to return with an improved £18m bid on Thursday.
However, there was further negative news regarding the fitness of Jack Wilshere this week after Goal.com exclusively revealed the midfielder may not return to action until November of this year, meaning a move for Real Madrid’s Nuri Sahin looks increasingly likely.
All Rhodes lead to Blackburn?
Following the news that Leon Best has been ruled out for six months with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, Blackburn are eyeing a £6m move for Huddersfield Town hotshot Jordan Rhodes, according to the Daily Mail.
Rovers have also been linked with Norwich City’s James Vaughan this week, although Canaries boss Chris Hughton dismissed any possible move out of hand on Wednesday, and Rovers' pursuit of Rhodes may also not prove to be straightforward with Fulham believed to be interested in the 22-year-old.
The Cottagers are also rumoured to be lining up a bid for Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin according to The Metro, while The Telegraph suggest Martin Jol has instead set his sights on Wolves winger Matt Jarvis.
Adebayor comes back to haunt CityEstranged Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor had been set to end his unsuccessful spell at the Etihad Stadium with a move to Tottenham this summer, but as exclusively revealed by Goal.com on Wednesday, the Togo international could yet stay in the north-west.
Despite an agreement between City and Spurs that would see Adebayor maintain his £170,000-a-week salary as well as landing a £5m signing-on fee, the 27-year-old has threatened to remain with the Premier League champions “to punish” them for mistreating him – unless he is also handed the £4m transfer sum agreed between the two clubs.
And with Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas conceding the north Londoners are “looking at different options” to the former Arsenal man, the forward’s financial demands could be on the verge of scuppering any potential switch.
