Friday Transfer Gossip

First off, despite the Daily Mail's report a few days ago, it seems that Chelsea and Sevilla have not yet reached agreement over the transfer of Daniel Alves. BBC Sport report that the Spanish side have rejected Chelsea's initial offer and are holding out for £25million for the Brazilian.

If they sell Alves, Sevilla are looking to replace him with fellow-Brazilian Cicinho. Marca (Spanish link) report that the player is open to a move, but is also considering an offer from AS Roma.

Fabio Rochemback has been linked with a move to Benfica, however the player's agent Horacio Gagioli has told Sky Sports that a move is unlikely as Middlesborough are happy with the player.

Barcelona have sold Maxi Lopez to FC Moscow for 2million Euros. Marca (Spanish link) report that the Argentine striker has signed a two year deal with the Russian side.

Boca Juniors have signed Leandro Gracian from Mexican side Monterrey. Ole (Spanish link) report that Gracian has been signed to be the team's playmaker, as it looks increasingly unlikely they will be able to sign Juan Riquelme.

Finally, the Gazzetta Della Sport (Italian link) reports that Juventus are interested in signing Urguayan forward Alvaro Recoba from Inter Milan.
