Liverpool In: bosingwa £7 million, Adriano £10 million, Quaresma £16 million
Out: Crouch12 million, Sissoko £8 million, Pennant £4 million unhappy about uncertain first team role
KUYT IS not GOING
There is no way that Luka modric is going to Emirates. He and Dinamo Zagreb are furious about Eduardo the Silvas lack of playing time, and Chelsea and FC Barcelona are now in the race. Modric has even said his dream is to play for Barcelona. He is way too expensive for Arsene, Arsene has even said as much. In Ben Arfa they will get a pure winger. Arsenal's acquisitions are simple:
Ben Arfa (12 million pounds)
Micah Richards (8 million pounds)
Artur Boruc (6 million pounds)
Jens Lehmann (free)
Eboue (3 million) to Everton
Song (4 million) to Marseille
da Silva (loan) to Birmingham
Bolton is readying a move to sign Rivaldo on a one year contract as a stopgap means of staving off relegation.
ARSENAL– –please people stop posting crap. one has just stated on here 7 people coming in during January this is rumours site not championship manager forum, and it's not just the gooners one has Liverpool spending about 50 million on three players spending 50 million has not worked so far so so you think the owners will think another 50 million will do any better. Arsene Wenger will never change his squad that much in one go, I tell you now he will sign one player in January and that will be Micah Richards for £12 million and that is it, even if dodgy jens leaves it will still be the one and then in Summer it will be the winger either arfa or modric a goalkeeper problem green or Boruc and another forward. Arsene Wenger has the money now but he will not throw it around like Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United.
Rangers shall be fairly active in the Jan transfer window, but mainly making pre–contract deals for Summer 2008 Expect some big names: Klasnic, Kehl, Kewell, Jensen, Pasanen are a dew being monitored by scouts. They are looking for a potential forward to replace Cousin in January should he wish to leave, however it will not be priority as they are eyeing a deal to bring Brandao in next Summer. A solid center back is also being looked at should they choose not to deal with Webster. Dorin Goian has been watched, Mathieu Delpierre and Matias Lequi are also being monitored. Do not be shocked if Boumsong makes a return for an undisclosed fee, Juve do not want him and he was the best defender for the 6 months he was here in Scotland. Smith will make enquires for the long awaited return of Gattuso, but that will not happen, Sebastian Kehl and Simon Rolfes are the alternatives.
Winter moves: Berbatov to Man United; Downing to Arsenal; Quaresma and Joaquin to Liverpool; Luka Modrics to Chelsea; Sydney Gouvou to Newcastle.
What is it with all these rumours of Owen coming to Man United. We've already got 'sicknote' Saha, so why would we want some one who has more injuries than him? And Ledley King, give over.
Selling John O'Shea would be a major mistake as he can play anywhere, even in goal. Danny Simpson will take over at right back, as although Neville will eventually return, he will not be the same, remember Heinze, after such a long layoff.
Only one player coming in, in January, Berbatov. Possible swap deal with Saha.
United will hopefully offload Darren Fletcher who is pants.
100 percent True
Gilberto to Everton £4 million
Downing to Tottenham £7 million
Cahill to Chelsea £5 million
Joe Royle to Wigan
Butt to Derby £1 million
Man United. Chelsea and FC Barcelona all interested in Glasgow Rangers' young exciting full back Alan Hutton. Reports of bids of up to £8 million will be put in this Summer.
Roman is to give Avram Grant money to improve the squad. ten Cat (old Ajax coach) has recommended Huntelaar and a deal should be secured in the January window. The blues are also looking at Benzema from Lyon, they see these two as the forward line of the future, with Drogba leaving for Milan in the Summer. They are also lining up a bit for Porto wide man Queresma, with Shaun Wright–Phillips leaving for Aston Villa.
Milan will also be lining up bids for Gallas and Essien as Mourinho has recommended them for his arrival in the Summer.
United are to sign Paul Robinson and Defoe is off to Liverpool.
Tottenhams first two signings to be the portugese Goal Keeper Quim and Sunderland's Kenwyn Jones. Robinson to be offloaded to Manchester City and expect Paul Stalteri to go back to canada and join Toronto FC.
Also, new LA Galaxy coach Ruud Gullit is said to be lining up a double swoop to bring fellow countrymen Rafael Van Der Vaart and Clarence Seedorf to join Becks and Co. in Los Angeles
Finally expect Milan Madaric to name Graham Rix as new manager of Leiciester in the upcoming days
Heed the word of Gav Burke
Newcastle to get really money spent in January and Summer with Andrei Arshavin coming in as Big Sam likes a player to just play behind the forwards + he can play on the wing this will be around £9 million + Deco and Edmilson from FC Barcelona as a first team experienced defender + the creativeity Newcastle need in the centre this for around a combined £10 million midfield spot eidur Gudjohnson a possibility if they fail with Arshavin + the world superstar they are looking for is actually Adriano from inter or Robinho from Madrid NEWCASTLE FOR CHAMPO LEAGUE
John Arne Riise will not leave Liverpool in January neither in the Summer either. He will put an end to speculation signing a contract extension in the coming months.
Lulihna will not sign for Chelsea and will persue a career in Italy signing for Roma in January for a cheeky little fee.
Finally expect to see Liverpool in the market for a young central defender, Garay and Breno looking very tempting to the English Giants.
Sheff United about to confirm a deal that would see on loan star Gary Cahill. The fee is reported to be around £1.5 – £2.5 million. Also Phill Bardsley maybe making his stay permenant at Brammall Lane.
Things looking up for the Blades
Celtic will sign Harry Kewell on bosman at end of season, looking at Sissoko but he's a bit pricy. Boruc will not leave unless he'e guaranteed football and excellent support. Jermaine Pennant, Billy Jones, adam hamill, faddy, armand Traore and possibly Ryan Garry of Arsenal.
out will be naka £5 million, Donati back to Italy £3 million, January to Holland £1 million, and o'dea on loan to any other Scottish Premier League club
