23.34 BST Fiorentina co-owner Andrea Della Valle has said the club is not considering offers for Stevan Jovetic. Juventus apparently bid €25 million, and Chelsea were strongly linked earlier in the summer, but Della Valle said: “I spoke to Jovetic and told him he is off the market for numerous reasons. I hope he understood that.
“He is so young and has such a long career ahead of him that it is important he stays in Florence for a while. Jovetic has to remain with us for at least another year and I hope many more. He is one of the few genuine European talents, so it’s only right that he stays.”
23.07 BST Paul Pogba is due to undergo his Juventus medical on Friday morning, according to Sky Sport Italia.
22.54 BST Leandro Damiao has scored for Brazil’s Olympic side tonight, but it seems AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has no intention of paying his asking price. “As soon as you score five goals in Brazil, you're suddenly worth €25 million,” he said. “Their valuations are exaggerated."
22.49 BST The Tottenham and Wood Green Journal has an exclusive with former Spurs star Chris Waddle in which he backs the club’s refusal to back down over Luka Modric. “Tottenham are doing the right thing,” the ESPN pundit said. “Daniel Levy’s handled it really well over the last couple of years with his players – he’s not given them away. If they want to sulk and sit in the reserves I think Tottenham are big enough now to accept that and say, ‘Well, until we get your fee you either play or sit in the reserves and rot’. Manchester City did it with Tevez and it’s about time these clubs follow that lead."
22.08 BST Thiago Motta, 29, has suggested he would be happy to return to Inter Milan at some point. "If I can come back someday, I would be happy, but now I'm thinking only of PSG," he said on Sportal.

18.31 BST Thiago Alcantara’s dad, Mazinho, has denied rumours AC Milan have made a loan offer for the midfielder and told COM Radio: “Thiago is under contract until 2015. Hopefully he can stay there for many years and finish his career at Barcelona. At Barcelona, Thiago has been treated very well.”
17.58 BST Getting irritated with the constant flip-flopping over the state of Manchester United’s bid for Lucas Moura? Today’s take on events comes from Sao Paulo director Adalberto Baptista, who says it’s dead. "There are no negotiations going on," he told ESPN Brasil. “Everybody knows that we got an offer for him and rejected it. It's also known that Lucas doesn't want to leave. The only person keeping the expectations alive is his agent. The decision is final."

15.00 BST: There’s high excitement in Ipswich, as ever, where Paul Jewell says he is determined to keep defender Aaron Cresswell at Portman Road. “We bought him, we developed him and I have told him that, if we get an offer that we have to consider, then we will consider it. But we do not encourage any offers," he said.
14.55 BST - DONE DEALS: Barnet have completed the signing of defender Jonathan Fortune, a free agent who spent time at Exeter last season, while Tranmere have signed Wycombe goalkeeper Jason Mooney on a one-year contract.
14.51 BST: But while Kightly might be going, Kevin Doyle isn’t: he says he wants to stay and help Wolves in their attempts to get straight back to the top flight after last season's dismal relegation.
The 28-year-old said he was looking forward to working with new manager Stale Salbakken, adding: “He's got some fantastic experience in his career. He'll have new ideas which he'll be getting across to us and we'll all get used to each other.

13.24 BST: Roberto Mancini has vented his frustration at Manchester City's lack of activity in the transfer market, claiming the Premier League champions must strengthen their squad if they are to retain their crown.

The 37-year-old former Welsh international, now a media pundit, took to Twitter to write: “On a serious note, if Rangers are struggling for players I would come out of retirement and play for nothing... could do a job in scot div 3! It would be a privilege to play for a great club ... only retired a year ago.”
09.00 BST: Here’s another take on the Van Persie saga: the Star says Arsenal are ready to make him stay in North London until the January transfer window.
The report says refusing to sell the striker in the summer “would send a strong message to fans that the Londoners have had enough” of losing key players.
Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood stressed that the Gunners would not allow Van Persie to depart on the cheap, saying: “He is a world-class player and we don’t want to give him away. If he is determined to leave, that is up to him, but giving him away is not on our agenda.
“To be honest, I do not understand him at all. I understood Cesc Fabregas wanting to go home to Barcelona last summer. I had sympathy with that. But I thought Robin was happy at Arsenal, especially after the season he had with us.”
08.55 BST: Staying with matters Eastlands, City have announced that skipper Vincent Kompany has signed a new six-year contract. It is the longest deal handed out by the Premier League champions in their recent history, and the 26-year-old Belgium international defender said: "Hopefully in the future I will have a bigger impact than I already have.
"There are so many more trophies to win at this club - that is why it makes it so special. It is good to know that I can be at City for another six years. It is a compliment that the club feels so highly of me."
08.45 BST: Juventus could abandon their attempts to sign Robin van Persie if the issue is not resolved quickly and instead turn their attentions to Manchester City’s Edin Djeko, the Mirror says.
Although signing Arsenal skipper Van Persie remains Juve’s priority, the club's general manager, Guiseppe Marotta, has indicated that could change if the issue drags on.
Van Persie has been reported as being keen to move to the Italian side, but is also interesting both Manchester United and Manchester City. Earlier in the summer, the Netherlands international said he would not sign a new contract at the Emirates. His existing deal has a year left to run.
08.40 BST: First “come and get me” plea of the day – it’s from Kafoumba Coulibaly who, the Sun says, is interesting Fulham, Aston Villa and Norwich. The 26-year-old Ivory Coast midfielder said: “Hopefully, Nice will accept a bid for me.”
08.38 BST: Chelsea could face competition for Marseille fullback Cesar Azpilicueta, who says Roberto Di Matteo isn’t the only person interested in signing him.
The Sun quotes the Spain Under-23 international as saying: “It is flattering when you have clubs such as Chelsea interested, but there are other clubs interested too.”
08.30 BST: Who could have predicted that Chelsea completing the signing of a player called Oscar might spark a flurry of ‘Oscar winners’-type headlines? But it has. Oh, it has.
The Blues’ active summer in the transfer market shows no sign of losing momentum, and they have now shelled out around £67 million to further maintain the marvellously competitive and well-balanced nature of the Premier League.
The Sun reports: “Oscar has been signed on a long-term deal by the European Champions after a deal was concluded with his Brazilian club Internacional.
“The 20-year-old playmaker, who underwent a medical at a private hospital in West London last week, was not planning to complete his move until his Olympic commitments were over.
“But the deal was rushed forward by Chelsea after a work permit was obtained yesterday for the young man who destroyed Stuart Pearce’s Great Britain team in a pre-Olympic warm-up match last Friday.”
Oscar (around £25 million) joins Eden Hazard (£32 million from Lille), Hazard’s brother, Thorgan, (£2 million from Lens) and Marko Marin (£7 million from Werder Bremen) as a summer arrival at the Bridge.
