Rangers News !
Paul Le Guen is lining up a £3m bid for Steaua Bucharest's prolific striker, Nicolae Dica. The Romanian international, who has scored four Champions League goals in six games, is developing an impressive reputation on the continent and has been linked with a move away from Bucharest, with Rangers first in the queue. Dica is a versatile forward, who likes dropping into midfield and wide positions, and has a habit of scoring spectacular goals with many of them being long-range free-kicks. Understandably, this ability has helped draw comparisons to the legendary ex-Romanian number ten, Gheorghe Hagi. Under-pressure boss Le Guen has already stated his intent to bring "two or three" new faces to Ibrox in January, and with the Gers currently 16 points behind rivals Celtic, fans in the blue half of Glasgow are not expecting Dica to be the only signing in the New Year.
L.Knight-Swansea-Loan Deal Terminated
Arsene Wenger is planning for the future and is scouting the globe for the youngest talent. He might decide to buy the 15 year old czech goalkeeper Tomas Holy or the older keeper igor akinfeev or even Oscar Ustari, all are highly rated. Young strikers such as Gilles Sunu, Alexandre Pato and Aaron niguez escaplez are being looked at and impressive midfielders like Nikon Jevtic, Bojan Krkic, Nuri Sahin and Nicolas Millan would be a great addition, also a young english centre back named Jack rodwell is a prospect. If you add this to our youth ranks we would be unstoppable. However players that might make a difference to the first team are Frank Ribery, Micah Richards, Gareth Bale and either Pele or Gordon, all of whom should come either in January or most likey the summer and they won't break the bank.Thankyou.
Arsene Wenger has ruled out making any signings in January, though the potential availability of Nigel Reo-Coker could force his hand. Reo-Coker has previously stated that he would jump at the chance of a transfer to the Emirates, and new Hammers boss Alan Curbishley is said to be ready to accept bids of £9m onwards for his current captain. Anton Ferdinand is being tipped to wear the armband after Reo-Coker's imminent departure but it's just a case of when will the transfer take place. The England under 21 midfielder will turn down any move to Everton as it isn't a big step up, so Arsenal could be in the driving seat. Should Reo-Coker move to Arsenal, Cameroonian flop Alexandre Song will be sold with his number 17 squad number going to the new boy.
West Ham are after Liverpool striker Peter Crouch and are ready to pay 15 million for him
Man U will put in a bid for box to box midfeilder Jean Makoun or Rafeal van der vaart (If Hamburg continue bad form) as for replecements for Neville and Giggs they will attrempt to draw in Gamst Pederson from Blackburn and Nani from Sporting (Nani looking likely after Lisbon droped out of CL.) The unseen arrival of Larsson will mean that SAF won't go all out for a striker until the next transfer window. SAF might go for someone that can make an impact from the bench, the likes of moutinho Reo Coker Kerlon look like possibal candidates,keeping in mind that Rossi, pique and Evans will come back.
Boaz Myhill is set to sign for reading in a deal worth £1m and Graham Stack travelling in the opposite direction after Leeds decided not to take up the opportunity of signing him on a permanent deal.
I have it on a very reliable source that when the transfer window opens Everton F.C. will sign 2 players:-1) Beattie and One Million Pounds will get Kevin Nolan and 2) £8Million pounds will see Joey Barton come to Goodison from City. This comes from the most reliable source. Nolan was discussing terms on Monday with his representitives and Barton was having his terms discussed on Tuesday.
Why are people still saying that Scott Parker will leave for West Ham etc. in the transfer window? This is the biggest load of st i have heard in a while. Why would we sell our captain and anchorman of the midfield? As it is we are already short on players! The only transfers out of Newcastle will be Albert Luque on a possible loan deal or permanent move for around £2-5 million. The squad needs strengthening in two main areas. Defence and Strikers. A left back is a priority, with Babayaro being about as useful as Steve Harper at left back! Expect a possible move for Wayne Bridge, be it loan or permanent, despite just signing another 4 year contract extension. Paul Konchesky could also be another option, as Alan Curbishley sold him while at Charlton due to a falling out between the two. A right back is also a priority, with Steven Carr far past his best. Possibly Wes Brown or an audacious bid for Micah Richards, to snap him from underneath the big clubs noses. With Steven Taylor playing superb at present, and Ramage forming a good partnership with him a central defender is not vital. Though expect a move for Mathew Upson. Roeder has already said he does not wish to sign Distin, Woodgate or Zat Nyt so you have to take his word for it. Now onto strikers. A main target man is needed to accomodate Martins pace. Sibierski is playing well at the moment, but come later stages of the season his age will come into effect. Possible moves could be for Peter Crouch, who Roeder has already stated he is a keen admirer of, along with Middlesboroughs Mark Viduka. James Beattie and Collins John could also be in the picture, after becoming out of favour at their respected clubs, although these two are only pure speculation with no concrete evidence being shown of Roeder planning a bid. Darren Bent is also another major target, who Roeder has stated he tried to make a bid for during the summer. Charlton will be desperate to hold onto him, as will West Ham to sign
him under the new management of Curbishly.
Nedevd set to sign for Newcastle! You heared it here first!
True villa fan here and with stuart taylor leaving on loan in january expect to see a GK come in prime target Craig Gordon but probolems now he is hearts captain also double swoop at man utd for richardson and smith on loan with view on buys in summer nrc bid in place with west ham looking to offload and finally the legendry keano of spurs
Russel and riorden will sign for norwich and mabey Carlos Edwards and proberly Chadwick. Ernie will not be let out for below 5 mill but higher they may ecxept then buy eastwood, sharp (who is tageted if riorden dosnt come) and a new keeper as Camp may not come in.
We are going buy daz potter from Liverpool for 250-500k i know this because he has said he wants a move to wolves when he came, i knew that we are going to buy the scunny strkier duo because it's on their site
