SEVERAL ongoing transfer sagas have turned over a new chapter this week.

Arsenal's frustrations in trying to bring in either Luis Suarez or Wayne Rooney could lead them to approach Swansea for last season's star striker Michu, according to the Independent.

That does not mark the end of Rooney gossip though, with the Gunners' London rivals Chelsea still interested, and expected to make another bid before the end of the transfer window.

The Gareth Bale to Real Madrid sale could become a part-exchange, with Spurs keen on bringing Luka Modric back to White Hart Lane.

Everton could spend some of the money they are expected to make from selling midfielder Marouane Fellaini and left-back Leighton Baines to Manchester United on Wigan's 22-year-old midfielder James McCarthy, say the Daily Star.
