West Ham United are lining up a move for Everton striker Andrew Johnson, according to Monday's papers.
The Mail carries a (tall?) story suggesting that United are set to make a £13m bid for the forward, who is thought to be looking to move back to London after failing to settle in the North West.
Elswhere Matthew Etherington - who has been told he can leave the club - is said to be a target of newly-promoted Derby County, who are rumoured to be willing to part with around £2m for the winger's services.
Nigel Reo-Coker continues to be linked with an £8m switch to Aston Villa; Glasgow Rangers were also linked with the England under-21 captain yesterday - whilst Manchester United wide-man Kieron Richardson was linked with a return to East London over the weekend.
Another possible departure could be Nigel Quashie - signed just five months ago in a £2m switch from West Brom - who is another Hammer said to be interesting Rangers boss Walter Smith.
Finally Eggert Magnusson is due to meet the representatives of Carlos Tevez this week with view to extending the Argentinian's stay at West Ham.
Despite Magnusson's best efforts, the feeling inside the club remains that Tevez will be playing elsewhere next season.
