Rumour Roundup: August 21st, 2013

So everybody, for the second week running, Anzhi's transfers dominate the news, although there are some other interesting rumours going around as well.

Done Deals:
Igor Denisov, Aleksandr Kokorin and Yuri Zhirkov all transferred to Dynamo from Anzhi. You can read all about it here.

Two further Anzhi departures are Mbark Boussoufa and Lassana Diarra, who have joined Lokomotiv for around €25 million. Diarra most likely signed to cover for the recent departure of Denis Glushakov to Spartak, while Boussoufa will strengthen Lokomotiv's currently weak wings and attacking midfield.

Looking Likely:
According to a plethora of sources throughout England and Russia, Willian looks set to complete a €35 million move to Tottenham Hotspur after reportedly turning down a move to Liverpool. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has been interested in the Brazilian since he was at Shakhtar, and Willian described Villas-Boas as a "friend" in November last year.

If the Guardian is to be believed, Everton will continue their interest in Spartak winger Aiden McGeady. McGeady has long been a target of both Everton as a club and their new manager, Roberto Martinez, who tried to bring McGeady to England as manager of Wigan.

Low Chance:
According to Tribal FootballLuis Neto's agent has stated that his client is not interested in a move from Zenit to Inter Milan, having only joined the St. Petersburg club from Sienna in January.
