Wolves are among the teams considering a move for James Tarkowski as he enters the final year of his contract at Burnley.

The 28-year-old was subject of a bid from West Ham last summer and they retain an interest in the centre-back, whose expiring terms at Turf Moor has made him a sought-after target in the transfer window.

Yerson Mosquera, 20, has arrived from Atletico Nacional in a £4.5m deal but Wolves are still in the market for a defender to bolster the back-line of new coach Bruno Lage.

Tarkowski has been a consistent performer for Burnley in his five seasons since arriving from Brentford, with his club determined to keep him for next season. 

They will need to weigh up whether another year is more valuable than the money they would receive, even if he walks away for free in 12 months.

Wolves have also been looking at goalkeepers as Rui Patricio is close to joining AS Roma. Fiorentina goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski, 23, is on their radar after performing well in Serie A last season.

Southampton lead chase for Blackburn striker

Southampton are leading the race for Blackburn Rovers striker Adam Armstrong, who looks set to move to the Premier League this summer.

Norwich City recently joined the hunt for the 24-year-old, who has a year left on his contract at Ewood Park and would expect to fetch £10million for his club.

Armstrong has scored 46 goals in the last two seasons in the Championship and was scouted by a number of top-flight clubs last season.

Arsenal keeping tabs on Calvert-Lewin

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s form with Everton last season has attracted the interest of clubs, with the England striker the leading goalscorer for finishes inside the penalty area.

Arsenal are looking to revamp their attacking line if they can get players out and they are admirers of Calvert-Lewin.

The 24-year-old scored 25 goals for club and country last season and only one of them was a penalty. He scored a spot-kick for England against Republic of Ireland but Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison are the usual takers at Goodison.
