Gary McAllister, the Scotland captain, has been put up for sale by Leeds United, who want pounds 3m for the 31-year-old midfielder.

Arsenal and Rangers, who both made enquires about McAllister last season, have been told of his availability. Now in the shop window of Euro 96, McAllister has said he would even consider a move abroad after six seasons at Leeds, where he has grown disillusioned with the club's performances.

Leeds have already set up the transfer of Gary Speed to Everton, while Phil Masinga is bound for Grasshopper Zurich. Incoming could be Shay Given, the Blackburn goalkeeper.

Bixente Lizarazu, the French international left-back Arsenal were hoping to lure to Highbury, is poised to join Athletic Bilbao in a pounds 1.5m deal. Wolves have asked Lillestrom to name their price for the 28-year-old Norwegian international midfielder, Stale Solbakken. The South African striker, Mark Williams, could be leaving Molineux for Bristol City.

Aston Villa's striker Savo Milosevic is thought to be a target for Sampdoria. The Italian team are expected to bid pounds 5m.
