ARSENAL. knowing Wenger and the amount of money we have it is likely that a max of 2 senior players will be brought in January and then the rest of on Wenger's list in the Summer. There is more than enough cover at the back for African cup however micah Richards might be bought in the Summer or after that. The midfield is not quite complete and there are just two options Wenger may go for. Either luka modric or samir Nasri, or both, however do not pretend to know when or which one because it's Wenger we are talking about. The only other French starlet I can forsee coming is benzema as a replacement for Bendtner who does not have what it takes. However this is just a maybe, but he would be the perfect future partner for theo. Outs will unfortunately be Gilberto, Bendtner and some way along the line Alex song and a defender will go as well. Also expect quality youth.
To the guy who thinks Nolan will be joining Everton – WAKE UP MAN You're in dreamland. Moyes is a shrewd businessman in the market and he would not waste over 500 k on our captain who is overweight, slow and ineffective. He is dragging the team down – Lee was brave enough to admit this and that is why he dropped him. These rumours are nonesense. He only signed a new four year deal recently and no other club will take him anyway. We will gladly sell him, but please stop with the lies. IT WONT HAPPEN.
Macauley Chrisantus and Matthew Edile will both join Manchester City. They are flying into have there medicals and will look around Eastlands.
100 percent true
Bolton Wanderers will spend big in the transfer window in a bid to get them from relegation.
Gary Megson will be appointed manager and his first actions will be to wield the axe on a number of players.
Idan Tal, Ricardo Vaz Te, Gerald Cid, Stelios and Ivan Campo will all be sold for considerable fees and the shocker will be offloading El Hadji Diouf.
Diouf has been good alongside Anelka but Megson will choose to offload him to raise funds as he does not score much anyway.
With the predicted income of around £14 million, Megson will sign Shola Ameobi for £4 million as Ameobi has fallen out of favour with Sam Allardyce, Ameobi will partner Anelka.
Next will be Mikael Silvestre for £4 million, Megson will use his versitality to his advantage.
Megson will sign Keita of Lens to add creativity in the midfield.
Finally he will complete permanent deals for Cristian Wilhelmsson and Mikel Alonso and then sign Darren Gibson on loan.
Everton Ins –:
k. nolan (Bolton) _ £2 million
s. Downing (boro) _ £6 million
Defoe (Tottenham) _ £7.5 million
Ashton (the Hammers) _8 million
j. Hoyte (Arsenal) _ £3 million
Everton Outs –:
l. Osman _ £4 million
a. Johnson swap for Defoe/13 million
t. hibbert _ £2.5 million
ruddy _ loan
maybe V. Der Meyde _ £4.5 million
I. E Everton will SIGN THESE PLAYERS IN EITHER JANUARY OR THE SUMMER.
ARSENAL will be buying Andy Johnson from Everton for £4 million with Nicklas Bendtner going the other way also. Arsenal Will also buy either Karim Benzema or Yohann Gourcuff.
This is 110 percent confirmed
i have close relation with Wolves winger Michael Kightly and he told me the other day that Wolves we take Nicklas Bendtner on loan in januray for the rest of the season this s true.
Rob Green – £5 million
Hatem Ben Arfa – £10 million
Luka Modric – £8 million
Karim Benzema – £14 million
Obviously they will not deffinately happen, Arsene I so unpredictable in the window.
Arsene knows So the news has finally come out that Arsene Wenger has been watching Karim Benzema and Hatem Ben Arfa? Well they are a bit late as Arsene Wenger has had them watched since the first game of the season.
So yes it is true that Arsenal will make a bid for them in January but the price will be around £30–35 million as Ben Arfa will ask for a transfer.The board have already sanctioned the deal and the money is there waiting.
And lets face it who would not want to play in this team?
It is also thought that Arsene Wenger will not make any more moves if these two players sign as he thinks his squad would then be complete.
Jens Lehmann, Gilberto Silva, Jay Simpson, Kerrea Gilbert and Phillipe Senderos will all be leaving Afc.
Massive news– Following the outstanding form of Rangers and Scotland right–back Alan Hutton, both Chelsea and Liverpool are locked in a bidding war to sign him. Chances are Hutton would prefer Liverpool because of the uncertainty at Chelsea at the moment, but there may even be interest from abroad.
Menez will be staying at as Monaco until Summer even with the interrest from Man United and Liverpool. he will eventually sign for Man United in the Summer to replace Saha who will be sold if his injury problems contiune after Christmas.
the rumours linking menez with Arsenal are false, as Wenger is happy with how much Walcott has improved. and will be offering him a new contract in January to secure him at the club.
miguel veloso will be going to Man United after Arsenal were forced out of a deal due to the players cost. however Silva will still be sold in January with another defensive midfielder coming in. who is yet not known.
speculation over where Huntelaar will end up will take a surprising turn in January when he will end up staying at Ajax until the end of the season. roman will not cough up the funds for his transfer as he is more interrested in binging in Kaka.
Drogba will stay at Stamford bridge until the Summer when he will leave for either real or FC Barcelona.
although there are rumours linking a swap deal with inter for Adriano.
Liverpool may attempt to sign Jones in January but they cant. What will happen is that they will sign him in the Summer the deal will be based around Sunderland staying up or going down. If they remain in the Premiership Liverpool will offload several players in the deal. But all in all the player will move for around 8 mil. This may never happen though if Blackburn beat Tottenham. Because if Jol is sacked Berb's will be heading to Anfield.
Chris coleman will be installed as Bolton manager in the next few days odds are at 5–1 but william hill have suspended betting on him, this is 99.7 percent true for a very reliable source.
Afc Bulletin + + + +
