Arsene Wenger is lookinng at young talent: mainly british. he will make bids for Ashley Young, Leighton Baines, Micah Richards (who he has tried to get before), Gareth Bale, Nigel Reo-Coker (who he has also tried to get before) and possible bids for foreigners Franck Ribery and Anderson. not too sure about Eric Abidal if he can get Baines or Bale for cheaper.Newcastle will sign Steve Sidwell for 4m, as well as Matthew Upson or Matthew Kilgallon (5m Upson, 3.5m Kilgallon). Also Glenn Roeder will try to sign Giuseppe Rossi on loan for the rest of the season.With the rangers fans starting to get disgrunteled with plg diavid murry has decided he must at least win 5 out of 6 of his next lot of games or be sacked his replacment will be alan curbishly hw will bring in dennis romedahl luke young hermian heridesson jerome thomas and an outrageous bid for darren bent will be madeReal Madrid will spend more than anyone during this coming January transfer window in a desperate attempt to keep their title challenge afloat. Capello will aim to rectify the four key problem areas of the team: namely, in the heart of defence, the left-back position, the right-wing, and in attack. For a combined fee of around 40m in will come Mexes from Roma, to slot in at CB alongside Cannavaro, the Brazilian youngster Marcelo - to replace the ageing Carlos at left-back, interestingly Dani Alves from Sevilla will be obtained to play on the right-wing - Beckham will only be used in the centre of midfield if he doesn't leave - Cicinho will be the back-up right-winger, and up front Trezeguet will be bought from Juventus perhaps for a hefty sum. For increased competition, Capello will only have four strikers at his disposal: van Nistelrooy,Trezeguet,Robinho,Raul. Both Cassano and Ronaldo will be sold: Cassano perhaps back to Italy: either Milan or Fiorentina would be happy to have him, Ronaldo most probably back to Inter, as Cruz or Recoba will be sold to make room for him.

trust me, I am Kingpeasant.It's pretty well known that Arsenal want Franck Ribery. However, Ribery has admitted through his agent that he wants a move to the Emirates. I hear that Tottenham are plotting a surprise move for the Marseille midfielder, but he will reject their advances in favour of a £16m move to the Gunners.Alan Smith/Robbie Fowler, not sure which one as yet, is rumoured to go out on loan to Championship side Stoke City, to regain his match sharpness and fitness! Discussions are ongoing at the moment. I have an executive box at Ibrox this season, and word going around is that David Murray is planning to give Paul Le Guen £10 million in January to try and turn the season around.
There are supposedly three main hits for January which Paul Le Guen is aiming for;
- Malouda from Lyon, the French International,
- Gattuso from Milan,
- Juninho from Lyon, the brazilian free kick specialist.
The obvious doubt of the rumour is that these players are of a high quality and could probably be usefulness to bigger teams, especially the Premiership.
