Nobby Solano and Kieren Dyer will both join the Hammers early next week, Giles Barnes is also expected to join before the deadline. Nicky Shorey will sign in the next 10 days, but no forward will come in before the window closes.
Heinze has been told by M. U. to stay away from the Reading game. His position is untenable and he wants to come to Anfield. Add to this that the legal case his letter gives him and do not be surprised to see Rafa win this psychological battle. If he is spotted in the stands at the Aston Villa game, it will mean only one thing. Rafa will let Aurelio or Riise go at Christmas and has only been able to secure Heinze on the basis of being first choice left back. With Mascherano emerging as a brilliant LFC player the future is bright at LFC.
After Chelsea and Manchester latest addition to their squads, Liverpool will need to buy. They promised that the will add and these are those the are eyeing.
They need defenders and have proposed Real to buy Cicinho with an annual salary of £3 million better than
As Roma 2.2 million, they will soon add Heinze after hard struggle and also Ramos or Kompany. They are also eyeing Metscheker, Alves and Heitinga.
Mexes to Arsenal? That rumour is about five years old. As I said before do not expect a new centre back at Arsenal just because Dijourou on loan.
Yes Toure and Eboue away for ANC but that is exactly why Dijourou only loaned until January so he's match fit and ready to play in Febuary (but still as third choice behind Gallas and Senderos) and Arsenal have 2 RBs and 2 LBs.
If Wenger wanted a defender he would've gone for Chivu, who's just gone to Inter, Wenger is a fan, just decided did not need him. For those with a sharp eye, Chivu was in tunnel as teams lined up before Emirates cup game and Chivu made a point of walking right across the room to greet Wenger like an old friend obviously not their first meeting.
With Evertons new found transfer funds expect big money moves for Manny Fernandes, Yakubu and Santi Ezquerro before Aug 31st.
To the guy who posted yesterday about Djourou (FIZZLE) his deal is for an initial loan until January which does not signal the arrival of Micah Richards. You made that up mate obviously. The African Cup of Nations begins in January so it makes more sense to me that Djourou is going to Birmingham for first team experience which he will not get much of at Arsenal this year. In January he could return having played every game and will be fit and ready to step into Toure's boots. You suggest also that Richards is unsettled by the arrival of foreign players? Why then would he want to move to the Premiership club with the most foreign players? Uh?.
Navas? Forget it paper talk, he's just a girl like Reyes.
Modric however looks set to come in he's very young aggressive and immensely talented currently he plays wide left which makes sense. He can play anywhere across midfield so long term he makes sense as well.
Diarra is a Wenger target for sure and he will try and bag him not as a replacement for Gilberto but an understudy who could conceivably start quite a few games this season. If it happens wait until the last day/last minute of the window just like the Gallas deal.
Modric + Diarra. That'll do.
Arsene Wenger's personal advisor ;)
I have just been told the rumours surrounding Goodison, from a very reliable source
before I start with the rumours, I would just like to verify where all the money is coming from.
David Moyes is so frustrated with the lack of funds that he actually mentioned leaving as he felt he was unable to take Everton further, especially the rate other smaller teams are spending. the deal with tesco regarding Kirkby comes with certain conditions, davey Moyes staying at the club is one of them. in order to keep him, bill kenwright has broke the bank and gave him a £20 million transfer kitty–along with tesco giving him £10 million to show there intent and prove they are serious in investing in Everton. this has obviously persuaded Moyes to stay as he believes he has the backing for the future. NICE ONE anyway back to the rumours:
yukubu £11 million
Saha £12 million
farfan £10 million
Mutu £8 million
Robbie Keane £7 million
Fernandez £9 million (+ add ons)
swp £11 million
Taylor £7 million
Hleb £11 million
these are genuine rumours and any of them could happen, and as usual we will not know until there nearly completed
Afc transfer news
Arsenal will sign 1 or two more players 1 which will be Ricardo quresma he will sign before the deadline will be givven the no. 8 shirt 13– £15 million 4 him he destroued us and Chelsea last sesaon in champo league maybe one more cause djorou out on loan Curtis Davies maybe or loan deal 4 him
Man United still have money in reserve to sign Dani Alves
Watch out for a deal with the Hammers for Dyer and Solano for £8 million. No big news. It's all over the tInternet. The news is that with Luques move to Levante looking to be finalised next week Newcastle will look to strengthen the squad with a £10 million + player. Mort is said to have stated to Sam that if he can make up some monies in the wage department as well as in the bank then Ashley will make up the rest opening doors to likes of Puerta or Navas of Sevilla for around £10 million with the addition of Ivica DraGutinovic, if he lowers his demands as Sevilla have already bought his replacement for £3 million.
Next week will see Newcastle approach Bolton for El–Hadji Diouf.
Burnley FC Rumours.
After the 2– 1 victory over West Bromwich, Steve Cotterill has confirmed that club will sign David Unsworth on a one year deal following his release by Wigan Athletic. This will seal the defensive worries after captain Steven Caldwell hobbled off with a re–acurance of the ankle injury sustained on the pre–season tour of Austria. This signing now leaves Steve Cotterill with only one position short of players, and I think all Burnley Fans no that that position is Right Back.
Expect a good year for Burnley.
I can confirm that Moyes was to walk out on the club earlier this week. Moyes had lost his rag with the board (following the death of Moyes' mother together with family issues) that the board were not prepared to offer a big sum of money.
After that he decided to stay (no doubt persuaded by Bully).
Away from that, I have heard Mido has practically signed for Middlesbrough which will pave the way for Yakubu to enter (helped with the fact thers a nigerian connection with Yobo and Anichebe).
I do not think the Fernandes deal will happen I am afraid, Benfica are just too stubborn. However I think a move for Kevin nolan SHOULD be on the cards. Kevin Nolan managed a local team in Liverpool and has said many times that he is dying to play for the Blues so hopefully if Sammy Lee accepts the team needs the funds we could have our midfielder.
Blue With The Know
Kenwyne Jones signing for Derby on Monday with Steve howard and Darren Moore movinhg to the saints
