Juve's Argentine attacker coming to England for a club record fee and today's transfer gossip
Meanwhile, David Moyes has been reunited with an old friend and Colombian striker Carlos Bacca turns down West Ham.

HERE ARE THE good, the bad, and the unlikely football moves being talked about today…

Watford will make a double swoop today with Juventus attacker Roberto Pereyra and Sunderland defender Younes Kaboul joining for a club record fee £12.5 million (€14.4m) and £3.5m (€4m) respectively.

Arsenal are reportedly hoping to entice Atletico Madrid Jose Gimenez to London discussions with Valencia over Shkodran Mustafi’s proposed move held up. Unfortunately for Arsene Wenger, the Uruguayan international has a buyout clause of around £56m (€65m).

After agreeing a £27m (€31m) deal for Liverpool striker Christian Benteke, Crystal Palace will hand the Belgian international a medical ahead of his move this afternoon.

One of West Ham’s main summer targets, Colombian centre forward Carlos Bacca, has decided to turn down their advances and remain at AC Milan.

Elsewhere, Sunderland have confirmed a one-year deal for Steven Pienaar after the a successful trial period. The South African midfielder links up with former boss David Moyes.

Former England defender Joleon Lescott was nearing a switch from Aston Villa to Rangers, but that deal has fallen through as the 34-year-old failed his medial in Glasgow.

Retro Deal of the Day

On this day in 1999, Robbie Keane became the most expensive teenager in British football when Coventry City paid £6m to Wolves for his services.

The striker spent one season with the Sky Blues — scoring 12 goals in 35 appearances before Inter Milan shelled out £13m to take him to Italy the following summer.
