FRASER Forster’s future is in doubt today – while Arsenal are being linked with a move for a Liverpool star.

The transfer rumours are hotting up as the new season moves closer, with a host of clubs linked to players.

England goalkeeper Forster, 26, will leave Celtic for Southampton in an £8m move if the Scottish side fail to overturn their 4-1 deficit to Legia Warsaw and are knocked out of the Champions League tonight, reports the Daily Mirror.

Forster joined Celtic from Newcastle in a £2m deal two years ago, and there have been reports that Newcastle could have a sell-on clause which may land them a cash windfall.

Meanwhile, the Daily Star reports that Arsenal are preparing to make a bid to buy Liverpool’s 29-year-old defender Daniel Agger.

It’s quiet on the Sunderland front but other transfer rumours today include:
