Lots of talk about Toronto FC and their endeavors to get Genoa and Italian National team forward Alberto Gilardino. More can be found on that on twitter: @MLSTransfers.
Now to news that's been brewing for a few days:
Zusi loan options
Graham Zusi says he's not concentrated on a loan until the MLS season is over. While this may or may not be true, his agent has been hard at work for weeks finding the perfect situation for his client.
A source close to the situation in Kansas City has said that suitors from England and Germany are currently in negotiations with management and Peter Vermes. The source confirmed one of the teams that are interested are West Ham United, who previously trialed Zusi last winter. Although no German teams were confirmed, another source has indicated to us that SC Freiburg is one of two teams interested.
More details as they come.
Cahill loan to Russia, England or Australia?
Tim Cahill has had an amazing season for the New York Red Bulls and apparently is looking to stay fit for World Cup 2014.
We originally had reported an option for Cahill to join Dynamo Moscow earlier in the summer and apparently, the offer is still available for him.
A source from WMG Management (Cahill's agent) has let us know that options in England and Australia are open. "Tim wants a loan and is considering all options. We haven't had open discussions with any teams yet but some top clubs in England are interested as are a prominent Australian club. Tim will be excited with the options he has."
Shea loan back to MLS?
Many MLS fans are tired of seeing Brek Shea struggle for time at Stoke City and so are a certain MLS club.
An undisclosed team in the league have inquired with Stoke City to bring back the winger on loan but Stoke want him to stay in England. They want him to gain experience in the country and see if he has what it takes to make the next step towards more first team action.
Dynamo going on scouting trip with forward in mind
We reported some weeks ago that Houston front office were going on an 8 day European scouting trip. Well we have an answer to at least one stop they'll be making: Reading, England.
A secondary source has indicated Houston may be interested in Reading FC forward Adam Le Fondre. Although his market value is around $4 million, the source says they are "desperate" to find a suitable striker for the next half decade.
More information on this as it comes as well.
What are your thoughts? Zusi to EPL? Cahill to Russia?! Let us know in the comments below.
