'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wigan Athletic - Wednesday Papers The Back Pages

Vital Wigan takes a quick look at the stories making the headlines of the sports pages this Wednesday morning.

The Mirror

Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan, who has been in Spain since 2004, is the latest target for Tottenham.

Everton are chasing Newcastle striker Alan Smith, who is likely to cost around 3m.

Bolton are closing in on the signing of Watford defender Danny Shittu for 2m.

Outspoken Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock says Manchester United and Tottenham are hypocrites for complaining that rivals tap up their stars.

The Sun

Striker Robinho is desperate for Real Madrid to let him join Chelsea.

Tottenham hopes of signing Dean Ashton have been dashed after West Ham put an 18m price tag on the striker. Spurs were apparently only ready to pay 14m or 15m

Bolton want West Brom full-back Paul Robinson in exchange for central defender Abdoulaye Meite.

Fulham have finally landed Everton's Andy Johnson for a cut-price fee of 8m after manager Roy Hodgson threatened to end the deal because of concerns over the striker's injury record.

Wigan are set to make a 3m bid for Ipswich striker Danny Haynes.

New Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has hit out at Jose Mourinho. Scolari says Mourinho was not that special and claims the former Chelsea boss should not have blamed his players when things went wrong.

Manchester United forward Carlos Tevez says he needs to sharpen up his image off the pitch in order to be a true superstar like team-mate Ronaldo.

The Mail

West Ham are the latest club linked with Manchester United striker Louis Saha, but they are delaying any approach after the former Fulham forward aggravated a knee injury.

West Ham have decided to release winger Freddie Ljungberg after just 12 months, a move which will cost them 6m.

Blackburn striker Benni McCarthy is wanted by Galatasaray.

Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra has explored the possibility of selling up, putting the long-term future of the club in doubt.

The Times

QPR manager Iain Dowie is on the verge of being sacked after a row with owner Flavio Briatore over the proposed transfer of an unnamed player from the Middle East.

Aston Villa have targeted Arsenal's Justin Hoyte, Luke Young of Middlesbrough and Chelsea's Paulo Ferreira to fill their full-back berth.

The Independent

Manchester United forward Louis Saha has expressed an interest in joining Sunderland.

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright is still hopeful of signing Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Moutinho.

The Telegraph

Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun has been linked with a summer move to Roma, where he will meet up with former Anfield team-mate John Arne Riise.
