Holland striker Dirk Kuyt is 'dreaming' of a move to Newcastle. Kuyt has made no secret of the fact he wants a move to England ahead of Italy. He said: 'I would love to play in the north-east.'When I was young I loved Italian football. But only because (Dutch trio Marco) van Basten, (Frank) Rijkaard and (Ruud) Gullit were playing for AC Milan.'Now I'd rather play in England. I love English football. I also think my style of play is completely right for the Premiership. A club like Newcastle would be my dream.'


Chelsea's Eidur Gudjohnsen is a transfer option for La Liga giants Barcelona as they bid to replace Henrik Larsson. As I mentioned yesterday, Forlan is Barcelona's number one option. But if that doesn't work, Gudjohnses is sait to be the next option. He has already been linked with Manchester United in the last few days, as part of a possible swap deal for Ruud van Nistelrooy. Other possible targets are Real Zaragoza's Diego Milito as well as Juventus duo David Trezeguet and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.


Not Drogba, but Zokora. Also an Ivory Coast international. can confirm Tottenham are keen on signing him. Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with Zokora in the past, but the player's agent Franck Belhassen has confirmed Tottenham have joined the chase for the powerful midfielder's signature.


Spurs will have their £5 million offer for Pascal Chimbonda accepted by Wigan. Chimbonda's value has risen since his surprise inclusion in Raymond Domonech's French World Cup squad. Any deal for Chimbonda is likely to be completed ahead of the World Cup this summer.


Czech international Tomas Rosicky is reported to have passed a medical with Arsenal. According to the reports, he was allowed to leave the Czech training camp in Austria to finalise the transfer. Czech coach Karel Bruckner said: 'I am surprised that no one has found out about this before.'We have tried to keep quiet about it but I have to admit that Tomas is there for a medical.' So looks like a done deal. Rosicky will move from Borussia Dortmund for £6.8m.
