Tottenham have announced that Hugo Lloris has committed his future to the club with the signing of a new five-year contract.

This is excellent news for Spurs. Lloris has been a outstanding performer for the since joining in 2012 and after a terrific World Cup the club have moved quickly to secure his services for the foreseeable future. The 27-year-old had been vocal about his disappointment after Spurs missed out on Champions League football last season and had been linked to PSG this summer, but it seems Daniel Levy and new manager Mauricio Pochettino played a big part in the Frenchman choosing to remain at White Hart Lane. "I spoke with the Chairman and I know the Club is as ambitious as ever," said Lloris. "It’s very important to feel at home at a club and for my family to feel well. I enjoy a great relationship with the Club and the fans. The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino is important as well. I have a good feeling with him. He is also ambitious."

Emanuele Giaccherini's agent has stated his client wants to remain at Sunderland.

Giaccherini was Paolo Di Canio's biggest signing of last summer but the winger failed to settle in English football and ended up playing a bit-part role as new manager Gus Poyet orchestrated the great escape from relegation. The lack of game time meant the winger missed out on Italy's World Cup squad and many observers expected him to leave for Galatasaray, but his agent insists he wants to remain at Sunderland.

Roma have set a deadline for Manchester City to buy Morocco’s Mehdi Benatia.

The Guardian are reporting that Roma are trying to force City’s hand by setting a 21 July deadline for the sale of Benatia, and want £30million for the central defender. However, City's preference is Porto’s £35million rated Eliaquim Mangala, so the Premier League champions are unlikely to be pressured in to buying their second choice until the chances of a deal for Mangala are 100% over. The arrival of either player would provide a new first choice partner for Vincent Kompany in the heart of defence, which would raise questions over the future of Martin Demichelis and Matija Nastasic.

Argentina defeated the Netherlands 4-2 on penalties in the World Cup semi-final.

The match was a slow one, finishing 0-0 in regular time. Neither team created many chances and overall produced one of the least exciting matches in this tournament. In extra-time, Louis van Gaal subbed out Robin van Persie to bring on Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, a move that ended up hurting them in the penalty shootout. Jasper Cillessen did not save a single penalty and van Persie wasn't there to take one. Instead, Ron Vlaar missed the Netherlands' first penalty kick and the Europeans never recovered. Argentina will face Germany in the final on Sunday.

Chelsea have signed Croatian midfielder Mario Pasalic from Hajduk Split.

The Blues lost Frank Lampard this summer but have done more than enough to replace him. They've signed Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas and now have signed a prospect for the future. Mario Pasalic is a 19-year-old central midfielder whose favorite player is Frank Lampard. Pasalic will take part of Chelsea's summer tour and pre-season training but there is a chance that he gets loaned out in order to get regular playing time. Pasalic is not ready to be a starter for Chelsea and he will need to develop a bit more to make it as a regular. The best case scenario for him this season is to be a backup for Fabregas and Nemanja Matic.

Manchester City have completed the signing of goalkeeper Willy Caballero from Malaga on a three-year deal.

Caballero played under Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini when he was in charge of Malaga between 2010-2013 and was regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in La Liga. The 32-year-old stopper joins the club to provide back-up and competition for Joe Hart, after Costel Pantilimon left to join Sunderland last month.

Despite having just signed a one-year extension, Patrice Evra has been linked with a move to Juventus in Serie A.

The arrival of Luke Shaw at Old Trafford for a huge transfer fee means that Patrice Evra is unlikely to be the sure fire starter he has been throughout his tenure at United. This has apparently encouraged Juventus to make an offer for the French international who apparently wants to continue on as a regular starter on a Champions League team. The rumor mill has United chasing Swiss standout Ricardo Rodriguez as a replacement (quite why a player in his prime coming off a great World Cup would sign up to be a reserve behind Luke Shaw is beyond me but that's what the rumors are saying).

Reports across Europe indicate that Arsenal are at the finish line with the signings of Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez from Newcastle and Barcelona respectively.

Arsenal are set to unveil their new Puma kits on Thursday. There is a line of thinking that says that they are holding up formal announcements on Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez, both strongly rumored to be done deals, to coincide with the press event for the new kits. The kit maker would certainly be off to a great start with a strong association with what are widely viewed as strong moves by the North London club. It could be a big day at the Emirates tomorrow indeed.

Loic Remy has been rumored to be an Arsenal target in years past as well as all summer this year and that possibility resurfaced today with word of Arsenal being ready to trip the Frenchman's £8m buy-out clause.

With Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy seemingly wrapped up, Arsene Wenger is moving on to address other needs. A move to provide cover/competition for Olivier Giroud in the form of French international teammate Loic Remy is apparently Wenger's next move. The forward has expressed an interest and his £8m buy-out clause means that the transfer fee from QPR won't be much of an issue. The next priorities will be to sort out Thomas Vermaelen and secure a holding midfielder, likely from Morgan Schneiderlein, Lars Bender, and Sami Khedira. It could be quite a summer at the Emirates if all that comes to fruition.

Germany destroyed Brazil 7-1 in what is one of the biggest World Cup shocks of all time.

Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose, Toni Kroos, and Sami Khedira all scored in that historic first half. In the second, Chelsea substitute Andre Schurrle came on to score two goals in finish off Brazil. In the late minutes of the match, fellow Chelsea star Oscar scored a consolation goal for Brazil as they walked off the pitch as one of the biggest embarrassments the country has ever experienced.

A David Luiz mistake opened up the floodgates of Brazil that led to a 7-1 Germany win over the host nation.

Luiz failed to mark Thomas Muller on a first half corner kick that led to Germany's first goal. After the goal, Brazil fell apart and there was nothing Luiz could do to stop the embarrassment. The Brazilian team missed Thiago Silva and Neymar, at least psychologically if not physically. The Brazilians looked to have given up after going 2-0 down and were standing around watching Germany play. In the second half, Brazil woke up for a short amount of time but German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer refused to let them back into the match. Brazil faces the loser of Argentina and the Netherlands in the third place match on Saturday.
