Every year Wenger says he's not going to buy in the winter transfer window, and every year he buys more than he does in the summer window. Last year he bought Adebeyor, Diaby, and Theo Walcott. This year it will be the same- he'll buy two senior players we have never heard of and a young Englishman- the young Englishman is Curtis Davies, who Arsene will make into a back up central defender and full time left back.

Milan Mandaric is set to axe current Leicester City boss Robert Kelly as soon as his proprsed takeover of the club is complete. Mandaric is said to already be in talks with ex-City legends Steve Walsh and David Oldfield, who he would like to bring in to form a managerial dream team.
CHELSEA TO SIGN M.RICHARDS (TO PLAY CB WIT TERRY), D. ALVES (RB) AND ADRIANO AS HE IS SUITED TO PLAYIN IN ENGLAND.
Liverpool are going to spend some part of their transfer budged to the Icelandic potential star Rurik Gislason 200.000 pounds.
NUFC rumours i have heard. scott parker won't go to west ham for so many reasons its hard to know where to start, hes captain of the club, hes on nearly 60k pw way beyond anything west ham can currently afford wages wise especially with them flirting with relegation, and finally nufc are still in europe and parker sees playing in europe as important to furthering his england career, hes a spurs fan and already turned them down to join the toon so i can't see the he wants to live in london argument holding much water.the only circumstance that nufc would even remotly consider lettig him go to the hammers is in exchange for dean ashton which from what ive heard the hammers have told nufc that they won't sell him for 15m never mind swap him as there struggling to score goals at the moment and see him as key to surviving relegation.
despite what some people say harewood, viduka, beattie, knight, distin, are not targets and if you actually pay any attention to the media have been dismissed as such buy the club.
roeder wants at least 1 left back, 1 center back and one striker that can play as a target man in january. players that are being looked into by nufc are bridge, baines, ball, de cler, oshea, emualsen, magnin for lb, davies, upson, riggott, neil, brown, vasoski for ch although vasoski has been a long term target for the club on the recomendation of the clubs scouts a move for him in janaury is unlikely as hes cup tied for the uefa cup so expect a move for him in the summer when moore and possibly bramble have left. As roeder wants a target man and has already seen a leak that his main target is crouch as he fist that role and could play in the uefa cup, but a move is unlikely unless liverpool get extra transfer cash in january and benitez fancies a shuffle of his cf reading between the lines it seems it was crouchs agent that leaked the nufc story to let pool know hes unhappy at being rotated and wants his future at anfield clarified. ashton and bent are the other two main targets but again roeder knows that they are unlikely to be sold. so surprisingly his main target that he feels he can get is reading's kevin doyle who has been recomended by the nufc irish contingent and who has also impressed the scouts who have been watching another target at reading games sidwell.
the only players leaving in january will be luque and bernard. bayern arnt interested in emre as they have a similar player already in van bommell and if they did sell hargreaves to man utd its my guess they will want a holding mf player instead.
AFC NEWS ,
Arsenal giving Lupoli plus cash 4 Peter crouch offer 2 Liverpool . Aliadaire 2 Middlesbrough with a possable swap deal with WOODGATE 2 Arsenal . Now with Diaby soon 2 be fully fit Wenger won't sign Reo-coker or any midfielder in january . As 4 Craid gordan he will sign 4 MAN U nooot AFC , as 4 Buffon he will stay at JUVENTAS because their at the top of serie B and expect 2 move 2 serie A next season .
My uncle is a security guard at Liverpool training ground and he has heard that David Villa will sign 4 Liverpool for approx 15m either in january or Summer. Maybe Vicente also, and a right winger is needed, as Pennant is on serious bad form.
I have a friend that owns a restaurant in Majorca and he has told me that Real Madrid will be selling several players next summer. I have seen the proof that loads of football related people go there, as he has photos of him with Ronaldinho, Raul and Jose Antonio Reyes. He also knows dozens of agents and club shareholders, and he tells me that Ramon Calderon will be forcing Fabio Capello to make changes. The introduction of Ruud van Nistelrooy has worked wonders at the Bernabeu, but his form will spell the end for Ronaldo. Madrid and Arsenal will exercise their options on Jose Antonio Reyes and Julio Baptista's respective loan deals, while Jonathan Woodgate has already agreed terms on a permanent move to Middlesbrough. Ivan Helguera will make a shock move to Mallorca next summer, with Bayern Munich defender Lucio ready to swap the Bundesliga for La Liga to form a deadly defensive partnership with Fabio Cannavaro.
now that wenger nows bendtner can cut it in the championship, he will recall him from his loan spell in birmingham and move him up to the next level and let him see out the rest of the season playing for watford where he will replace marlon king. you read it here first.ME
Defoe for 17M?! Rafa didn't even want him when he was available for 10. Don't expect another striker. Neill looks like a solid bet, but it will be summer before LFC spend much more. Even then it will only be 2-3 players. Expect continued interest in Alves and Sabrosa. Kuyt is the real deal. Go Reds.
Liverpool to sign daniel alves for 12 million once takeover of club goes through in january
Don't be suprised to see Wigans Paul Sharner to sign for Middlesborough or Villa with Paul Jewell cashing in on a £2million bid. If this happens we could see Matt Holland or Gavin Mahon turning out in a Wigan Shirt.
If Watford are relegated then Ashley Young could switch to spurs. If Benitez gets fed up with Jermaine Pennant then Shaun Wright-Phillips could sign for £12million on a permanent basis.
Wigan will want to sign a pacy centre half in place of Matt Jackson who will probably sign for Cardiff City and with Darren Purse off to the JJB. Paul Jewell does need different dimensions upfront, Mark Viduka could be the answer or perhaps Marlon King. Newcastle could sign Alvaro Recoba or more likely Arouna Kone from PSV Eindhoven. Liverpool will make a bid for Klass Jan Huntelaar after the Dubai takeover has occured with even Valencia's Vicente a possibility for Mr Benitez. Ronaldo (REAL MADRID) will sign along with Beckham for an american club and Clint Dempsey (NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION) could sign for Wigan, Boro, Newcastle, Reading or Fulham.

Norwich boss Peter Grant looks set to be tested for leading scorer, Rob Earnshaw. Newcastle, Middlesborough and Wigan have all watched the Welshman, and Newcastle in particular are believed to be ready to spend £6.5mil to bring him to St James Park.
Norwich themselves have hardly been dormant, and Peter Grant has apparently had two bids for Greg Halford turned down. Grant is apparently looking north of the border for signings, and is believed to be watching Hibs trio Scott Brown, Ivan Sproule and Chris Killen along with Celtic's Derek Riordan and Aberdeen's Russel Anderson and Barry Nicholson.
Liverpool are to offer £5 million for Kevin Doyle in January as Benitez seeks for a Premiership proven striker.

Everton to sign Nolan, Nugent and Paulo Ferreira n January.
Billy Jones is unfortunately getting sick of lower league football with crewe and speculation is he isn't going to sign a new contract, which is bad for all us railwaymen. but apparently the front runners are liverpool and everton, which i am also a proud kopite so its not all bad.
