Premier League — 27 July 2013

gomis_1630639aSky Sports are reporting that Newcastle have upped their bid for Lyon and France striker Bafetimbi Gomis to £6.9million.

The Magpies are looking to add two new strikers to their squad and Gomis appears to be their number one target.

Another target appears to be Gomis’ compatriot Loic Remy of QPR. The club from the north east are believed to have made an enquiry about taking the French international striker on a season-long loan.

Remy snubbed Newcastle in favour of a move to QPR in January, but is reportedly keen to stay in the English top-flight.

QPR defender Jose Bosingwa is believed to be close to agreeing a move to Turkish side Trabzonspor. The full-back is in Turkey ready to discuss personal terms and ahead of a medical.

Hull have announced the signing of Ivory Coast international Yannick Sagbo from Evian for an undisclosed fee. The 25-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Tigers and joined the ever-growing legion of new arrivals at the KC Stadium.

Everton, West Brom, and Southampton are set to battle it out for the signature of Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair. The former-Swansea star has struggled for first team football since his arrival at City.

Everton are current favourites to sign Sinclair, with a season-long loan deal mooted and the possibility of a permanent transfer next summer.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed his interest in former-Chelsea attacker Salomon Kalou. The Ivorian only left English last summer, when he left for Ligue One club Lille. However, he has been linked with a switch back to the Premier League ever since the move.

Kalou has also been linked with a move to West Brom and linking up with former-teammate Nicolas Anelka in the Midlands.

Which striker will Newcastle sign this summer?
