Chelsea Agree Fee For Internacional Attacker Oscar (TRANSFER TALK AND RUMOURS)

Eden Hazard has already arrived to complement Chelsea's attack, but now the Blues have allegedly agreed a deal for 20-year-old Brazilian starlet Oscar for £25m.

Four words of caution though, Blues fans: "Sky Sports News understands". For they are the source behind the "deal in principle" to sign the Brazil international, who will be landing at Heathrow on Tuesday ahead of competing at the Olympic Games.

Oscar has been capped six times by the seleção, and his arrival at Stamford Bridge would again reinforce Roberto di Matteo's (Roman Abramovich-enforced?) bid to get Chelsea to move the bus and playing attacking football again.

The Blues' interest in Andre Schurrle may be over though, after Bayer Leverkusen director Wolfgang Holzhauser said negotiations were, well, over. Schurrle, 21, scored for Germany at the European Championship in their 4-1 quarter-final win over Germany, yet some seem to forget Chelsea have already bought Marko Marin from Werder Bremen this summer.

West Ham United are interested in Dimitar Berbatov, say the Mirror, coincidentally a day after he said it would be "better" if he left Manchester United.

Whereas the Hammers' interest in Andy Carroll was logical (Sam Allardyce + Andy Carroll means 2+2 very much equals 4 on this occasion), one would surmise Berbatov, 31, would react act with disdain to the direct, aerial football. He did after all once say "football is an art and I am painting a masterpiece". See for yourself.

Robin van Persie has returned to training with Arsenal, but The Times allege Arsène Wenger is already planning for life without the Dutchman. Paulinho, 23, is the striker identified to fill the void, at a cost of £9m from Brazilian side Corinthians.

On the topic of Van Persie, his return has seen the Sun state he has been left out of the Gunners' online catalogue. No need for the 28-year-old to eliminate those shades of grey in his hair for a photoshoot anytime soon then.

The Guardian report Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid, is adamant Luka Modrić only wants to head to the Bernabéu. A "target" of Manchester United, Manchester United are used to this.

Newcastle United's Andy Carroll tactics may have worked, if you believe the Newcastle Evening Chronicle. After reports suggested he wanted to stay at Liverpool and fight for a starting berth, he has now commanded his representatives to secure a move bag to the Tyne.

The Merseysiders have thrown a spanner in the works however, and it could prove to be one that's tricky to dislodge. They want a staggering £20m for Carroll, counter the Guardian, which is in fact logical if you consider they spent such an amount on Jordan Henderson AND Stewart Downing. Each.

And meanwhile Feyenoord defender Ron Vlaar is keen to secure an £8m move to Aston Villa, say the Mirror.
