  Arsenal Facts,

David Villa is not an option Wenger. Yaya Toure will come in at £7.5 million. Micah Richards will also be with the team by June for £11.5 Million with Eboue going the opposite direction.

Krancjar is a done deal, he will be announced next Friday for £4.5 Million. Thierry Henry will return for a cut price of £7. 25 Million on August 31st as a nice surprise for all you Arsenal Fans.

Finally the biggest signing of the Summer for Arsenal will be Franc Ribery for an undisclosed fee. He will be announced after the Euro Championships. Forget about gareth Barry it will not be happening. I promise Hleb will be an ARSENAL player next season.

These ARE facts, I am a relative of David Dein.

L8r's you gorgeous gooners.

  In terms of what Rafa wants to do, he's very keen to almost use two different sides. He's aware of the league problems, and his main buys will be from the Premier League, established.

He will make one signing overseas, from Spain. It'll likely be David Silva, Joaquin or David Villa. Alternatively, he's aware of the interest in Xabi Alonso from Spain and any number of players could be involved in swaps. Names chucked about include Aguero (unlikely), Maxi (possible) and even Ronaldinho and Henry (never, too old).

Gareth Barry is an accepted choice. He will try and use his squad players in exchanges. He's looked at Bentley, but feels he will be too expensive. Milner is a cheaper option, with Newcastle interested in a few pool players, Riise and Finnan. Rafa may even attempt a cheaky swap deal involving Michael Owen and Milner, with a host of his own players and maybe some money.

This is what Rafa wants. If the DIC get power, then he will be pushed into a trophy signing as an arrival gift from DIC to the fans. He will be looking at some of the top players in the world in this case: Kaka, Messi, Ibrahimovic, Eto'o, Aguero etc. Aguero or Eto'o would be most likely. With this extra money He would also look at a couple of expensive, young English players. Johnson and Richards of Manchester City, and even Theo Walcott.

The usual Outs are Kewell definitely. Riise and Crouch probably. He will listen to offers for Finnan and Pennant, although he does like them. Voronin will be kept as strictly back–up. He does not want Xabi to leave, but if Xabi asks and a bid of at least £16 million is made, then he will.

  Roy Hodgson has begun to play for life next season in the Premier League and will tie Jimmy Bullard down to a new contract. He will look to sign Reading defender Andre Bikey and midfielder Stephen Hunt. Hodgson will make Mikael Forsell his main target and will sign the Finish forward from Birmingham for £3 million. Carlton Cole and Bobby Zamora are also targets.

= v1=

  Well it looks as if Walter Smith at Rangers is going to get a warchest to spend this Summer after the tremendous season Rangers have had with players to come in.

in– Alan Smith

Gattuso

Both Fletchers Hibernian and Man United

and possibly a defeneder in Senderos.

Out–Cuellar £15 million or swap deal for smith.

Cousin

  Expect EFC to have a new manager within a week.

They will also declare the signing of Arshavin on Friday.

Sadly Moyes weill go. Shame. best £4£ manager in the league.

  After clinching their tenth title Man United have lodged a formal bid of 25 million, 10 upfront, the rest comprised of add ons and instalments for Dani Alves. he is seen as the perfect replacement for Neville and plays in the same style as Evra who has excelled this season.

Ferguson is desperate to sign Benzema, but he is inclined to stay at Lyon for a further season. plus, after winning the Ligue one players of the year his valuation has well exceeded 35 million. United have enquired as to Adriano's availability on loan next season, as a stop gap until Benzema is signed.

the final signing of the close season will be a replacement for Paul Scholes. United have heavily scouted two young Brazilian prospects, in Thiago Neves and Lulinha.

  Wenger will make £18 million pound raid on Wigan for Placios, Valencia and Kirkland Wenger will let Fabianski go to Wigan on loan. To solve the leaky defense he will purchase the Austrailain right back Milligan (free) and JoLeon LeScott, he will also sign Mikael Arteta from Everton for a fee of £22 million + Eboue and Ben arfa or Nasri will sign to solve the problem of left wing. Leaving will be Lehmann, Eboue, Hoyte, Flamini and Hleb Gallas may also leave but it will only be in a straight swap beal with pepe.

  For those posting rumours about Arsenal, I can tell you that Arsene does have plans based on what has already occurred, but has a number of contingencies if other players leave that nothing is known completely for sure yet. Here is what is known, based on who has already left. This may change if Hleb/Ade/Fab leave.

I will tell you that there will be no new forwards unless Ade leaves and no new GKs. Arsene feels that Almunia/Fabianski/Mannone is good enough, as are Ade/RVP/Walcott/Bendtner (and daSilva when he recovers) esp. given the young forwards in the system.

Out:

Lehmann (Hansa Rostock)

Senderos (St. Gallen)

Flamini (Milan)

Eboue (Portsmouth)

Others?

In:

Steven Cherundolo, (Hannover) (cover for Sagna)

Richard Dunne, (Manchester City), (rotation with Gallas and Toure)

Loic Perrin, (St. Etienne) (replacement for Flamini)

Hatem Ben Arfa, (OlymPique Marseille) (the pacey left winger so desperately needed)

Others will only be brought in if more transfer out.

  Leicester City 2sack holloway and make him head chef at the clubs restaurant as he is so good at serving up st to the fans. expect Ian Dowie 2take over before July first

  Although a Gooner, I know a fella inside the Boardroom at BeScot Stadium (? think they changed it's name) at Walsall who I think are League 1. Anyway, as a Gooner, he thought I would be interested to know that Goons legend Steve Morrow is on the shortlist of 5 managers for their vacant job.

Any Walsall fans (do not know their nickname) will be interested to hear that joining Morrow on the shortlist are;

– Steve Cotteril

– Martin Foyle

– Steve Bleasdale

– Mark Kinsella and David Kelly joint managerial team

Just thought you would like to know, it'll be one of those 5 (6 if you include the duo)

  Latest Ins and Outs rumours from Plymouth: INS Yoichiro Kakitani (18 year old Japanese Stiker), Leon Cort (Stoke), Darren Huckerby (Norwich), Yassine Chikhaoui (FC ZuRich, not Hassil as previously rumoured) Nicholson (Aberdeen), Sone Aluko (Birmingham) and Luggy has a list from about 250 agents of avalible players so watch out, lots of transfer activities 4 the pilgrims.OUTS Matt Doumbe and Nadjim Abdou possibly on there way out. Rory Fallon will not be moved on in the Summer as he is settled in Plymouth, the Argyle squad and at his church. so stop saying he's going because he's just not.xxx

  News from edinburgh.

Hibernian manager has been told to cut up to six higher earners from the squad Fletcher and beuzlin must be sold. he will be allowed to replace them with Billy Mehmit from st mirran a possible.

Hibernian owner Tom Farmer unhappy about profits for shareholders this season.

at tynecastle, Billy Davis is now favorite but with Steve Coppell leaving Reading they might miss out, next in line would be jim jeffries. Aston Villa to make £3 million bid for bednar, Stewart to move on to Aberdeen.

  Hearts

Victoras Iacob and Mathieu Beda (Free) will join from Kaiserslautern.

  In the following two weeks expect to see Miguel Veloso join Newcastle United for a fee of £15 million. Taylor, Owen, Martins, Beye, Harper and Butt to all sign long term contracts. Both Ramage and Carr will join Stoke on frees with Troisi joining AZ Alkmaar on a free.

Also during the Summer Gomis will be signed for £10 million, Richard Dunne will be signed for £6 million, Nicky Shorey for £3 million and Tom Huddlestone for £3 million. This is a total of £37 million spent.

Leaving will be: Rozehnal £2 million, Enrique £5 million, Ameobi £4 million, N'Zogbia £5 million and Cacapa £2 million

This will put Keegan back in Ashleys good books because he will only have spent £19 million out of a £20 million kitty so the owner will be £1 million better off than he expected.

  Kevin Blackwell is desperate to get Darren Currie at Sheff United. He would also like to sign Wycombe's on loan Gillingham forward Delroy Facey. And in what is a suprise move he would like to offer Paul Peschisolido a contract to become his super sub.

  Hey disappointed Villa fans, do not give up on Gareth Barry yet. All this rubbish about a mate who played in the 60's who is a friend of Andy Gray is scuttlebutt. Then the already done deal, forget it.

Gareth is being tempted by the thought of Champions league, but with two years left on his contract, MON will reject all offers.

However, if a good player is offered, not the cast offs that Liverpool supporters keep on quoting, Carson real value £1 million, Crouch £6 million, Riise £3 million, Penant £3 million etc, total value about half the value of Barry, then MON just might be tempted. But to part with possibly the most indemand player in the Premier League would not be accepted by the faithful Villa fans.

Also Ash is staying put. He plays for MON and is adored by the fans. £5 million + Pennant dream on. That values him at £8 million. Add another £10 million and someone might listen. AVfc have been railroaded before. Yorke to Man United for £12.6 million. Andy Gray for £1.5 million.

MON will not sell the team he is building, he wants top 4 next season which means Liverpool will be fighting with the Toffees forfifth.

Arriving will be Ashton, his performance yesterday impressed MON. Kirkland who single handed defeated Villa at VP. Guzen will renew his signature in the Summer and the Leicester pairing will join AVfc. Huddlestone, Sidwell, Lennon will all be on the wish list.

C'mon Villa fans, the Messiah arrived and he will not let us down

  LIVERPOOL facts (not rumours)

Carson

Itandje

Voronin

Huntelaar (Klaas Jan or whatever.)

There will also be a shock signing that IS not on the radar (similar to the signing of Babel last season)

Kopite In The Know.

  Rangers will not be signing Gattuso. I stated this last week. 2 reasons why, he's agreed personal terms with Bayern AND he's priced over £8 million which also corrects the person of and Everton fan who states Gattuso will go there for free if they do not get Bradley, that is a laugh since Gattuso is twice the player Bradley is, considering his countless big game performances.

  Pompy will sign:

Kaboul or Mensah to replace Campbell

Spiderman for the Right Wing

Crouch or Gudjohnsen up front

  Arsenal will sign the following players:

Vincent Kompany (£8.5 million) HAMBURGER SV

Niko Kranjcar (£7 million) PORTSMOUTH

Gabriel Agbonlahor (£10 million) ASTON VILLA

or

Johan Vonlanthen (£10 milllion) RED BULL SALZBURG

No new keepers will be purchased reserve gola keeper Vito Mannone will be third choice after Fabianski and Almunia.

Kieran Gibbs (LOAN) DERBY COUNTY

Mark Randall (LOAN) DERBY

Eboue (£7 million) LYON

Reserve centre back and reserve captain Harvard Nordveit will be part of the first teamalong with the new Spanish sensation Fran Merida next season.

  FC Barcelona have already begun the rebuilding of a new cycle. Zambrotta replaced by Lahm, Coloccini will be brought in, Edmilson and Thuram will leave along with Sylvinho. Valdes possibly goin, Pinto gone, Deco also on the way with Ronaldinho and Dos Santos. Van Der Vaart high on the wanted list with David Silva to replace Ronaldinho on the left. David Villa or Ibrahimovic could replace either Henry or Eto'O if they leave aswell

  RANGERS to sign:

Klasnic

S. Davis

A. Johnson

D. Fletcher

Nekounam or Maresca

Bikey

Dudek or Sorensen only if McGregor goes

  I'm afraid Liverpool fans have got to start being more realistic this Summer. The truth is that Rafa Benitez does not have a great deal of money to spend, so all these David Villa, Aguero, Benzema rumours should probably stop. After a lot of negotiation he will probably get Barry in the end as the player wants to join, but the only other signings will be Gabriel Heinze and Amantino Mancini from Roma, who will arrive in what I hear will be a £7 million deal. That is a great bit of business. Benitez will not be given a lot of money, and thus will have to pay for his dealings by transfering some of his current players ie Crouch, who will join Portsmouth for £12 million.

Man United are after Micah Richards, but Shinawatra has no intention of selling him at this moment in time. United will actually sign Kenwyne Jones and Daniel Alves. No other signings will be made.

Chelsea have already agreed a deal for Jose Bosingwa. They will also sign Rafael Van Der Vaart and Ricardo Quaresma. Shaun Wright–Phillips and Tal Ben Haim will both be joining Newcastle in a combined £15 million deal.

As for Arsenal, all I do know is that Wenger will not be replacing Flamini. Gilberto will stay, and Diaby and Song will be the two understudies for that DM position. The rumours of Hatem Ben Arfa have died down a little as the truth is that he has other offers that he sees as more appealing at this point. One club that has been in contact is Chelsea. The Richard Dunne rumours are unfounded. Wenger has no intention of bidding for either Gareth Barry or Micah Richards, and actually will not be signing any British players at all this Summer, contrary to the views of some people on here.

  Liverpool transfer targets and departures:

It's no secret that the folowing will leave as long as satisfactory valuations are met; Crouch, Riise, Pennant, Carson, Itanje. Kewell is going for free and Leto may be sold if his passport issues cannot be resolved. The future's of Veronin, Finnan, Aurelio, and Alonso are not decided. Rafa still believes they are worthy of being in the squad but he may sell them if funds are needed or quality replacements become available.

Targets include Barry (old news now), Heinze, Degen, Rafinha, Mancini, Bentley and Owen. This seasons 'big buy' will be Aguero. These are the prefered options only.

Insua and Plessis will join the First Team squad, Nemeth is not ready yet so he may go on loan for experience, probably Atletico as part of the Aguero deal.

Net spend approximately £20 mollion

  I an the a friend of Darren huckebys nephew and he has informed that Darren is in talks with Hereford United.

s. q

  Ex–Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce will take over as manager of Reading FC Once Stevy Coppell's departure is confirmed. He will be given the chance as he is seen as the ideal man by John Madjeski to win promotion next season. Reading fc–source– INSIDE INFORMATION.

  Liverpool Rumours:

Crouch has already been sold for 15 Million to Aston Villa. MON has been after him for the last six months.

Veronin will not be sold.

Gerrard is off to Real Madrid.

Lampard is being touted as his replacement.

  Ben Arfa to Arsenal – £14.4 million

Done deal. Will be announced tomorrow.

  You may not have heard of him, but Arsenal will sign Morgan SchnEiderlin from Strasbourg.

Norwich have enquired about signing Rigters from Blackburn– £750 k has been mentioned, but a lot of that is linked to future milestones– goals, games, promotion etc

West Bromwich Albion will sign Segundo Castillo and Luis Saritama– 2 Ecuador internationals. Castillo for £1 million from Red Star and Saritama on loan.

  Just been in a local cafe where Michael dawson goes quite often, and he is good mates with the owner and he said that Berbatov will defintly sign for Chelsea in a £28.5 million deal.

  I have just seen Darren Huckerby coming out of the City Ground. You Reds.

  Manchester City Will Defintly Sign Andriy Voronin + Yossi Benayoun From Liverpool With Micheal Johnson Moving The Other Way For £6 Million. I have Heard This From A Really Close Source. Sven's Barmy Army

  Just Saw Kenwyne Jones Around The Bridge. Why Are We After Him He Is Rammal. We Want Jose Back Say We Want Jose Back

  The guy who says Carvalho did not cut it for Chelsea this year obviously does not like football. He has been Chelsea's best defeneder buy a country mile this year (and most of last season too) You ask 90 percent of real Chelsea fans and they will tell you the same.

Anyway, to the rest of you people who actually know about the game, no rumours, just my opinions, I think Bentley to Liverpool is a great shout, can play in either 4–3–3 or a 4–4–2 and has first class delivery from wide. I can see Chelsea signing 1 top forward of either Huntelaar, Klose or Eto.

Other than that I think Wenger will stick with his youth policy with one possible exception of Yaya Toure to replace Flamini.

Possiblity of Veloso to cover centre half position but for the transfer fee Lisbon would want, I don;t think Fergie would spend it on a squad player. Lahm or Alvez at RB possibly.

Keep the Faith – 3 in a row.

  David Moyes will sign a new five year deal with Everton within the next two weeks. He will then immediatley turn his attention to bringing in his transfer targets early. Moyes will approach Valencia about Joaquin and also on loan midfielder Manuel Fernandes. Although Fernandes has not made the same impact as last season, he has showed glimpses of his quality and Moyes rates him highly. A deal of £16 million is likely to be strook to bring both Fernandes and Joaquin to Goodison Park. With Moyes reportedly having £30 million to spend to try and break into the 'top 4', Moyes will bring in a solid holding midfielder to replace Lee Carsley, who will sign a two year contract with Derby County. Moyes' main target is Gennaro Gattuso from AC Milan. Gattuso has admitted he is desperate to play in the Premier League and could be tempted by a move to Goodison Park. And finally Moyes will be looking to bring in a forward. The man most likely to come in is Andrei Arshavin, who can play on the wing or as a forward.

  Diouf 2 sign for Manchester City for free and micah Richards 2 sign for Man United

  Hot news for Norwich City fans.

Glen Roeder is to bow to public pressure and offer Darren Huckerby a new one season deal for a "pay as you play" contract.

Roeder and the NCfc board have come under recent pressure from fans about not renewing the talismanic winger's contract, so this seems a move to get some fans back onside.

Huckerby will be playing next season with a familiar face, as Norwich announce the re–signing of Rob Earnshaw from Derby later this week. Also look out for the loan signing of Chris Eagles from manyoo and the permenant signing of Linvoy Primus from Pompey, as Roeder looks to strengthen his squad for a serious charge for promotion next season. NCfc scouts also watching two players at Lincoln City, but no names are known at present, but one is rumoured to be S. Harvey.

thanx for reading

  Arsenal scout Giles Grimandi has been busy in France. He has been a regular at St. Etienne looking at strike Gomis and captain Loic Perrin. It's also been revealed Wenger has helt talks with Ben Arfa and made enquiry's of Makoun's wages. He also said in the press conference that he is going to sign someone from the Premier League

Man. United will pull another Anderson and NAni deal off by the signing of Joao Moutinho and Miguel Veloso, both from Sporting Lisbon

  Richard Dunne will definitely sign for Sunderland (6 million), and partner Jonny Evans (5 million). Expect both deals to be tied up relatively quickly. Keane will spend the remainder of his budget and time trying to attract creativity and firepower to the side, Aiden McGeady, Mauro Zarate, Dean Ashton and Luia Fabiano being his main targets. Finally Paul McShane and Kieran Richardson going to West Bromwich will broker a deal seeing Kevin Phillips return to Sunderland where he will see more Premier League football than being promised by Tony Mowbray

  Stoke City will sign at least eight players this season if not up to 12. Among those on the 'want' list are:

–GK: Carlo Nash

–GK: Joe Hart

–GK: Mickal Landreau

–DEF: Chris Riggot

–DEF: Bernard Mendy

–DEF: Martin Taylor

–DEF: Nicky Shorey

–DEF: Mario Yepes

–MID: Sebastian Larsson

–MID: Stephen Hunt

–MID: Wayne Routledge

–MID: Theo Walcott

–MID: Jerome Rothen

–ST: Marlon Harewood

–ST: Dave Kitson

–ST: Sam Vokes

–ST: Pauleta (If possible to bring him from PSG)

–ST: Kris Boyd

–ST: Sylvan Ebanks–Blake

These are 100 percent plausible and are very much Premier League quality for Stoke City to sign

  Stoke City are planning a double raid for Charlton winger Darren Ambrose and goalkeeper Nicky Weaver. The pair are expected to sign for a combined fee of £3.5 million.

  Arsenal Signings:

Hatem Ben Arfa

Ricardo Quaresma

Vincent Kompany

Danielle De Rossi

Karim Benzema

  Crystal Palace will sign if they fail to go up.

Wes Hoolhahan Blackpool 250 k

Kasper Gorkss Blackpool 250 k

Richard Hughes Portsmouth £1 million

Freddy Eastwood Wolves £1 million

Ryan Taylor Wigan 750 k to £1 million

Steven Arnold Norwich free

Darren Huckerby Norwich free

Danny Webber Sheff United free

Out:

Mark Kennedy

Tony Craig

Jeff Hughes

Scott Flinders

Shefki Kuqi

Mark hudson?

  Chris pead will sign for pot vale after been released by Brentford

  To the fool who said that David Villa would not come to Arsenal because he is not interested and he does not suit Arsenal's style of play. Ur you Dumb? Villa openly stated that IF he was to move to the Premiership then his firt choice wuld be to play for ARSENAL because they suit his STYLE OF PLAY.

Anyway Wenger will only bring in three new first team players, these being: 1. Ben Arfa (£12 million), 2. Makoun (£10 million), 3. Mexes/Lucio.
