QPR striker ‘heading towards Sheffield Wednesday move’

QPR striker Jay Bothroyd is heading towards a move to Sheffield Wednesday, according to The Sun.

Bothroyd played for Cardiff under Owls boss Dave Jones, who is reported to be tracking him after deciding not to sign Marlon Harewood.

Bothroyd can leave QPR.

Jones is apparently willing to pay £1m for the England international, who has been told he can leave Loftus Road.

Meanwhile, West Ham have failed with an attempt to sign Clint Dempsey from Fulham, the Daily Mail say.

The Hammers are said to have made an approach for the American, who has been linked with several clubs this summer.

Marseille want Gael Kakuta in exchange for Cesar Azpilicueta if they are to sell the Spanish right-back to Chelsea, according to the Daily Mirror.

It is claimed Marseille have rejected a £5m bid for Azpilicueta and are holding out for more money but also fancy Kakuta either on loan or in a permanent player-plus-cash deal.

It follows an interview with L’Equipe in which Kakuta, 21, appeared to suggest he wants to return to France and that Marseille are one of the clubs he would be interested in joining.

The Mail say Chelsea are refusing to be held to ransom in their pursuit of long-term targets Edinson Cavani and Hulk.

The Blues are reportedly threatening to withdraw from both chases, with Napoli striker Cavani believed to be haggling over wages and Porto keen to negotiate a higher price for Hulk.
