Tottenham hope to sign Nani for £14 million, following the transfer of Bale. Nani will only sign however if Berbatov is sold for a big fee to Man United with Saha moving to WHL. Jol is planning to spend should Berbatov go. He will keep Jenas and play him in a central position with Keane and Saha up front although he would make Crouch or Owen a possible target.

Robinson, Chimbonda, King, Dawson, Bale, Lennon, Zakora, Jenas, Nani, Keane, Saha

will be the line up IF Berbatov leaves (to Man U) .

=v1=

Rangers boss Walter Smith has already signed Andy Webster and Lee McCulloch and will be realeasing them next week. Also Smith has signed Robbie Fowler on a 2 year deal. This will also trigger enough cash (as Fowler is free) for cueller (Osasuna cb) for £2 mill. This will leave the new Rangers team next season as:

Mcgregor

Hutton Webster Cueller Smith

Burke Ferguson Thomson Adam

Boyd/ Fowler Mcculloch

West Ham will sell Reo Coker and replace him with Scott Parker. Harewood&£10m will be used for Darren Bent. Etherington £3m, Konchesky £1m, Mullins £500k, Caroll Free, Sheringham Free, Pansil £500k will all be let go. Lucas Neill will be made Captain.

Here are some of the players Liverpool are keeping an eye on that nobody is talking about:

+ Grosso, Lahm, Bridge, R. Carlos, G. Zambrotta

+ Burdisso, King, Marquez

+ Srna, Giuly, Bentley

+ Vicente, Nani, Reyes

+ Sharp, Fred, Gilardino, Anelka

Sunderland's Tobias Hysen is currently in talks regarding a move back to Sweden.

Forget the rumours, these are the facts. Rangers have make bids for Whittaker (Hibs), Naysmith (Everton), Hart (Aberdeen) . Enquires have been made about Naismith (Kilmarnock) and, according to Glasgow Evening Times, Rangers want to take the final year of Beasley's PSV contract.

Arsenal Bulletin

With Marseille having booked a seat in next seasons C L, don't expect him 2 move AFC or any other club any time soon . With Michael Owen having played a full 90 mins 4 England, don't be suprised if AFC make a move 4 him as he's proved his fitness, Poom 2 Watford and see AFC find a replacement and it won't be Vito Mannone as he will problay leave AFC also .

BREAKING RUMOURS.

Nani will sign for Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth just over 13.5 million pound. The deal will be announced sometime next week.

Younes Kaboul will join after the French ligue 1 season is over for a fee around 7 million.

Berbatov has assuerd Tottenhams board he will sign a 3 year extension, ending speculation that he is moving (although he and his agent have been trying to end this speculation for around 3 months now)

Martin Jol also has three more targets he wishes to bring to WHL before the season starts.

Giles Barnes, who he is confident of signing.

Mark Viduka (free) or Darren Bent (10 million) to replace the outgoing Mido.

And finally, Reo-Coker (2m + Gardner) to replace Ghaly and Tainio.

This is to the guy who said their brother plays for the reserves. How certain are you of the transfers and can u name your bro if possible. please write bk. interesting stuff

LIVERPOOL TRANSFER TALK!

My cousin is a scout for Liverpool and they are in talks to sign a young lad from Chile called Nicolas Millan. He plays for Colo Colo but because he is only 15 they would get him for around £200,000. Supposed to be the next big thing from south america! Inter, Real and Barce have already offered him a contract but he likes the Liverpool tradition and is good friends with Gonzalez.

My cousin also saw Mata (Real Madrid) and Vicente! (Valencia) leaving Melwood whilst the boys wre in Athens.

Rangers Possible Squad next season:

GK: McGregor, Wright

RB: Hutton, Whittaker

CB: Weir, Webster, Broadfoot, Ehiogu, Cuellar

LB: Smith, Konchesky, Papac

RM: Burke, Feinduono

CM: Ferguson, Hemdani, Thomson, Nekounam

LM: Adam, Beasley, Gow

CF: Boyd, Naismith, Pizarro, Darcheville

Jagielka to sign for Everton over the holiday weekend.

Liverpool are very close to agreeing a deal with Real Zaragoza for defender Gabriel Milito. It has been reported that he will sign a 4 year, £40,000 p/ w contract. Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will then look to Germany and Bayern Munich's Phillip Lahm after they missed out on Champions League football for next season. He will cost up to £13m to buy but Benitez has the backing from US owners Gillett and Hicks. John Arne Riise will be moved to the left side of midfield fighting for a place with Harry Kewell and Sebastian Leto. Regardless of any reports suggesting Riise maybe leaving this is not true. After the Spanish season has ended Benitez will then test Barcelona's resolve by bidding for Samuel Eto'o. There is no intention, however, of a swap deal involving either Xabi Alonso or Momo Sissoko. Both are set to stay with Liverpool for next season and beyond. Benitez rates Alonso highly and sees him as one of the players he will never allow to leave unless he is told by Alonso himself that he wants to quit. The rumours inside the club is that he loves Liverpool and the city and has no intention of leaving because he wants to win the Premier League with Liverpool. Any deal for Eto'o will only involve cash with Liverpool willing to pay as much as £22m but no more. Daniel Alves is the other player they would like to sign and will try to strike a deal with Sevilla for £13.4m after having verbally agreed on the sale. Fernando Torres, Nani, and Luisao are the fallback players. Neither Luis Garcia, Harry Kewell or Fabio Aurelio will be allowed to leave but Craig Bellamy has been told he can talk to other clubs. Craig Lindfield will be given more games next season especially in the Carling Cup.

This is the main squad that Liverpool could have next season should all of their top targets be bought:

Reina-Carson-Padelli

Finnan-Arbeloa-Carragher-Agger-Milito-Aurelio-Lahm

Alves-Pennant-Garcia-Gerrard-Leiva-Alonso-Masherano-Sissoko-Riise-Kewell-Leto

Eto'o-Kuyt-Crouch-Voronin

LIVERPOOL SUMMER SIGNINGS

Almunia, Amauri, Tevez, Alves, Milito, Van der Vaart, Lucas, Voronin, Mata, Poritt

These signings will come to around 70 million

Craig Bellamy, Scott Carson, Robbie Fowler, Bolo Zenden, Jerzy Dudek, Luis Garcia, Sami Hyypia, Mark Gonzalez, Dirk Kuyt, Djibril Cisse

We will be getting around 40mil from these lot.

SQUAD:

GK: Reina Almunia Martin

RB: Finnan Arbeloa (Carragher Alves)

CB: Carragher Milito Agger Paletta Hobbs (Arbeloa)

LB: Aurelio Riise Insua (Carragher)

RM: Alves Pennant (Gerrard)

CM: Gerrard Sissoko (Lucas)

HM: Alonso Mascherano Lucas

LM: Kewell Leto Porritt (vdv Riise Aurelio)

AM: Van der Vaart (Kewell Tevez Gerrard Lucas)

ST: Tevez Amauri Crouch Voronin Mata

Start of season (before players have settled) :

Reina/ Finnan/ Carra/ Agger/ Aurelio/ Gerrard/ Alonso/ Mascherano/ Kewell/ Tevez/ Crouch

Alves, Amauri, VDV and Milito will get into the team gradually. Rafa does not want another slow start to the season.

Don't expect Almunia, paletta, Lucas, hobbs, insua, leto, poritt, Voronin and Mata to feature a lot unless there are injuries.

Inside source.

mick McCarthy wants Blackpools Wes hoolahan! also Lee bowyer is on his way out of West Ham. with Derby and Leicester ready to pounce. 100% genuine

Just as I predicted Gareth Bale has shunned Man. United and Arsenal in favour of Tottenham, Gareth sees this as a great oppurtunity and has closely followed the progress of the other young british talents at WHL.

Look what has happened to Walcott at the Gooners and Man. United rarely buy young untried players without a view to loan out.

Expect Tottenham to announce the signing of Younes Kabboul on Mon/ Tues followed by the signings of Giles Barnes, Martin Petrov and another striker possibly D. Bent and a cheeky swap deal for Owen in exchange for Defoe.

The imminent departures of Ghaly, Mido, Tainio, D. Murphy, A. Gardner and with the emergence of young Ben Alnwick will see the departure of Radek Cerny to a Championship team.

READING have received much interest in Reading and England left back Nicky Shorey. Reading this week turned down a £5m offer from a un-named Premier League club. John Madejski has reiterated that the club do not, and will not sell unless they feel it's in their best interest! It's thought that Arsenal are one of the clubs interested and are lining up an £8m offer in the wake of Gareth Bale's move to neighbours Tottenham Hotspur.

For the Fan who said RVP to sign for Liverpool 4 15 million is a completely made up story from another world as Wenger still has his faith in him but if he does leave he will probably go to Bayern Munich in exchange for Philip Lahm as Arsenal need to strengthen their left flanks

I was lucky enuf to see Marlon Harewood in Spain today whilst he was on holiday as I was collecting his autograph he told me that his good friend Nigel Reo Coker will hand in a transfer request later this afternoon not that I'm botherd

MAN UNITED - SUMMER TRANSFERS

Do not expect United to spend silly amounts of money this summer, we simply do not have the funds to compete with Chelsea and this summer, Liverpool. Instead, Fergie will add a couple of big money signings, but no more than 3.

GOALKEEPERS

Expect the rumours about Craig Gordon to be nothing more than rumours, Van der Sar will start the season as Number 1 with Foster on the bench looking to push into the starting 11. Kusczak will stay as 3rd keeper.

( ( Van der Sar / Foster / Kusczak ) )

DEFENDERS

After missing out on Gareth Bale, don't expect Fergie to add to the defense in the summer. A RB to take over Neville's role would be nice, but Fergie will wait til next summer to buy one. Pique will return from loan, and Fergie will sell Silvestre to either Lyon or a Bundesliga club for 4million.

( ( Neville/ Vidic/ Rio/ Evra ) ) - Heinze/ Pique/ Brown

MIDFIELD

Hargreaves has been signed for 17million, and the only other addition Fergie will make here is the signing of a winger to eventually replace Giggs, most likely Nani (Sporting Lisbon) for around 17million. Fletcher and O'Shea will stay and act as utility players filling in for injuries. Richardson will be sold, but Eagles will stay on.

( ( Ronaldo/ Carrick/ Scholes/ Giggs ) ) Nani/ O'Shea/ Fletcher/ Hargreaves/ Park

STRIKERS

This area will also be strengthened but not with a mega-bucks signing of Torres, Berbatov or Eto'o. Despite strong rumours, Berba will stay at Spurs, Torres would find it hard to adapt and Eto'o would break the bank. United will sell Saha to Lyon for 6million and buy Klass-Jan Huntelaar for 12million from Ajax. Rossi will return from loan, Solskjaer will be a squad player and Dong Fhangzhou loaned out. don't be surprised if United bring in a veteran such as Viduka on a short-term contract for free to add depth to the squad.

( (Rooney / Huntelaar) ) - Solskjaer/ Smith/ Rossi/ Viduka

INS:

Huntelaar - AJAX - 12million

Hargreaves - Bayern - 17million

Nani - S. Lisbon - 17million

Viduka - free

OUTS:

Saha - 6million

Richardson - 3million

Dong Fhangzhou - loan.

ASTON VILLA RUMOURS

Martin O'Neill has had a change of heart&will no longer be bringing in Artur Boruc from Celtic. His chief scout Ian Storey Moore persuaded him to watch the Hearts v Kilmarnock game last week, which has resulted in O'Neill lodging a bid in the region of £6M for CRAIG GORDON. Next on the list is a Right Back and after scouring here&in Europe O'Neill has decided on PHIL JAGIELKA and again a £6M bid has been lodged to secure his services. Next will be a quality midfielder and on O'Neill's list is WESLEY SNEIDJER&MANUEL FERNANDES both will join the Villa in £10M&£12M deals respectively. A centre forward will be next on the list and Villa are finalising a deal for DARREN BENT in a player swap plus cash deal (Villa have offered Liam Ridgewell&Alan PArdew is interested) . These are exciting times at Villa Park with an unlimited budget and the best owner and board in the the Premiership ! the team starting next season will look like this :

4-4-3 formation

G/ Keeper : Craig Gordon

R/ Back : Phil Jagielka

L/ Back : WilFred Bouma

C/ Half : Olaf Mellberg

C/ Half : Martin Laursen

Mid : Gareth Barry

Mid : Wesley Sneijder

Mid : Manuel Fernandes

C/ F : John Carew

C/ F : Darren Bent

C/ F : Ashley Young

# Squad : Sorensen / Hughes / Petrov / Gsrdner / Davis / Agbonlahor / Moore.

This information is directly out of Villa Park and WILL be happening !

The Aston Villan

RANGERS are considering a bid for either Alessio Tacchinardi or Javad Nekouman to add some real quality to the midfield. There was also a whisper of Kakha Kaladze, but insiders feel that unless the player expressed a real desire to come, they would be priced out of any move. Jon Dalh Tomasson is to be looked at as his future is in some doubt when he returns from his loan at Villarreal.

I live over here in New Zealand, and all the talk is of Chris Killen going to Celtic. He is aware that he will be one of four strikers competing for a place with JVOH McDonald and probably Frei of Dortmund, but reckons its a chance he can't pass up

Im delighted as I'm a Celtic man, and played with the big man at school level over here

Mon the Hoops!

Today George Gillet has said Dani Alves and Gabriel Milito in the next few days.

A fee of around 15 millions will secure Alves and around 7 or 8 million for Milito.

We will buy Teves off Kia Joorabchian for around 20-25 million with West Ham not getting a penny.

Barcelona have stated Interest in BOTH Momo Sissoko and Xabi Alonso.

Either: 25 million + Alonso

Or: 30 Million + Sissoko for Samuel Eto'o

1 of them will leave this summer because of the arrivals of Javier Mascherano and Lucas Leiva. Its most likely to me Momo Sissoko as Mascherano is very similar to him but can also pass the ball.

Fowler, Zenden, Gonzalez, Bellamy, Hyypia, Palletta?, Kewell?, Cisse, Dudek and Pongolle will all find new clubs this summer.

Links: We are also linked to: Torres, Villa, Pederson, Trezuguet, Malouda, Ribery, Nani and Micah Richards.

if we don't will prob get Freddy Eastwood 1. 5-2m

Aliadiere might sign

we will not get Tony Capaldi as he will move to Cardiff

Stockport defender any Williams will sign 4 100-900k

we will not get Scott Sinclair on permanent but may sign him on loan

ruhmors also about Wes hoolahan from livingston who was on loan to Blackpool this season mm will watch him in the play off final and Roy o'donovan

the team next season will be

Murray

Collins-craddock-Williams-edwards

mcindoe-olofinjana/ potter/ Henry/ Davies-kightly

sharp/ Eastwood-Keogh/ Aliadiere

subs;hennersey-little-hoolihan/ donovan-ward/ bothroyd-?mm will bring in a magic player from the lower divisions or in ireland

Benitez is to be handed a massive transfer war chest rumoured to be around 100m to bolster the team and try and win the Premiership (amongst other competitions) . Players that will be coming in to Anfield will be:

Gabriel Milito (8m)

Philip Lahm (8m)

Dani Alves (12m)

Morton Gamst Pederson (8m)

Simao Sabrossa (7m)

Fernando Torres (18m, could rise to 22m)

Carlos Tevez (15m)

Nigel Reo-Coker 2 Spurs 4 cash + Tainio

To the guy/ girl who claimed Danny Pugh was leaving Leeds. Leeds sold him 12 months ago to Preston. Get your facts right before you write in.

There will be NO transfer activity at Elland Rd until the administration issue is sorted out. The only players who can join other clubs from Leeds are the ones who have been released.

This may only be pub gossip but I heard that Aston Villa aswell as Sunderland have tabled a 5million bid for Portsmouth's Matty taylor.

also Sunderland are intersted in Nugent a bid of 5 million + stern John or Steven elliot semms likely

Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United have a 'gentleman's agreement' to the effect that Newcastle will not sign any Wanderers players in the summer transfer window.

Kevin Nolan will 100% be a Bolton player at the start of next season (unless Liverpool come in for him!) .

Why has neither Diouf or Anelka said anything recently about wanting away from Bolton? Perhaps they both want to stay unless the 'right' move comes along. Considering their reputations, I wouldn't be surprised if this doesn't happen and so one or both will be at Wanderers next season.

Breaking rumours Simoa's agent was in Anfield last night in a 3 hour meeting with Parry and Rafa. Looks like everything has been agreed but he won't have his medical for a while as he has just had an operation. If you don't believe me check Simoa wasn't with the rest of the team in Canada.

Stevie Sidwell has been promised a minimum of 30 appearances next season for Chelsea. Of course this could mean 30 1 minute sub appearances but more likely it is 30 starts. This leads me to believe that he has been brought in to replace Lampard, who is heading to Barcelona. Did anyone hear his Dad unconvincingly laugh off the question about his Spanish lessons on the radio? Very suspicious indeed.

Rafa is planning on having a clear out this season I have heard and bringin in alot of fresh new faces to fight for next seasons title.

Outs:

Bellamy - Aston Villa - 6m

Sissoko - Hopefully on loan but probable to be permenent or maybe involved in the Eto'o deal - Barcelona - 8m

Zenden - free

Gonzalez - undisclosed fee already done to Betis

Fowler- free

Riise - Lyon - 8m

Hyypia - Portsmouth - 2m

By letting Fowler and Bellamy go there is then room to sign 2 quality strikers I have heard rumours from all over the show but the most probable ones in my oppinion are Teves and Eto'o

In's:

Tevez - 18m

Eto'o - 30m plus Sissoko

Malouda - 13.5m

Milito - 6m

Alves - 17m

Vorinin - Free

Lucas - Undisclosed Fee

Arsenal Squad Next Season

GK - Lehmann, Almunia, Fabianski

DR - Eboue, Hoyte, Gilbert

DL - Clichy, Traore

DC - Gallas, Djourou

DC - Toure, Senderos, (Connolly/ Fernandez)

MR - Rosicky, Hleb, Walcott

ML - Van Persie, Anderson

MC - Fabregas, Denilson

MC - Gilberto, Diaby, Zapater

ST - Huntelaar, Bendtner

ST - Henry, Adebayor, (Walcott/ Gouffran/ Vela)

Basically Arsenal lack balance and this team has the right mix of players and quality to challenge realistically for the premier league next season. Arsenal lack: a real winger, a goal poacher, ariel ability and aggression.

In - Fabianksi (future keeper), Fernandez (height), Anderson (winger), Zapater (aggression), Huntelaar (poacher), Gouffran (good young striker)

Out - Poom, Flamini, Song, Aliadiere, Lupoli

Arsenal rumours

Arsenal are not bringing in many new players but the 3 which are cuming will be vital. Torres will join whilst Reyes going the other way. Micah Richards will come as Hoyte will re-join Sunderland on loan. Finnaly Ribery will end all speculation with a move 2 the Emirates in the next few weeks.

Been told from a very very reliable source that Robbie Fowler will travel to Glasgow in the middle of June when he gets back from dubai to to talk to Rangers about a 2 year deal. Also Rangers have had permission to speak from Bolton Wanderers to speak to Kevin Davies in a possible £3.8 plus Brahim Hemdani move. This is from a very reliable agent.

I have heard today that Walsall have agreed a fee with Lincoln for League 2 midfielder of the year Lee Frecklington. Also ex-Walsall striker Michael Ricketts will sign later this week and will partner Geoff Horsfield next season at the Banks's Stadium.

Arsenal won't be as busy as everyone expects over the coming months in the transfer market. I've read on here that we're looking to sign Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o, Franck Ribery, Nigel Reo-Coker, Gianluigi Buffon and once I even saw Charles N'Zogbia's name pop up as well. However, we won't be going after those sort of names. Legia Warsaw goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has completed his move to the Emirates, while the clear out has begun too. Julio Baptista has been shipped back to Real Madrid after a largely disappointing loan stint, while Jose Antonio Reyes is on the verge of a move to Atletico Madrid. Jeremie Aliadiere, Mart Poom, Phillipe Senderos and Mathieu Flamini are also on their way out, while youngster Armand Traore will be farmed out on loan for the season. Promising striker Nicklas Bendtner will return to the club after a year at Birmingham, while Wigan left back Leighton Baines is on his way to the Carling Cup finalists. Apart from Fabianski and Baines, I wouldn't expect too much movement on the transfer front. A winger could be drafted in but Franck Ribery and Ryan Babel seem unlikely to me. I think a more realistic option would be someone like Pavel Nedved, who is likely to quit Juventus during the close season.

ARSENAL F. C

Arsenal have signed Yoan Gouffran although he will not actually join the club until next summer because Wenger feels he needs to keep playing first team football. Wenger is desperately trying to agree a fee with athletico Madrid 4 Torres with Reyes going the other way with 15mil. also Wenger does not want Ribery he has identified Nasri as twice the player and is hoping that he can persuade Nasri to leave France. the last potential transfer is Micah Richards who admitted wanting to join Arsenal Wenger is willing to offer 10mil or a swap deal including Alliadere and 6mil which will depend on Man Citys new manager.

Arsene Wenger is likely to be given a budget of around £20 million, which the board agree is a substantial amount. Arsene will only buy a few players in the market with many players targeted going elsewhere. AW has been in Spain the past week doing David Dein's job and as a result has missed out on Gareth Bale, Wenger is quite upset, considering how cheap he went for. To remedy this he will bring in a group of new youngsters:

YOUNGSTERS

- Giles Barnes - Derby

- Kolbein Sigthorsson - HK - NEARLY COMPLETED

- Pedro - Figueirense - NEARLY COMPLETED

- Renato - Flamengo

- Yoan Gouffran - Caen - NEARLY COMPLETED

- Steven Naismith - Kilmarnock - NEARLY COMPLETED

Arsene feels this group will mostly play in the reserves with the exception of Barnes who will act as backup. With £20 million Arsene Wenger feels he has just about enough to do what he wants but will sell some players to expand his budget.

OUT

- Mart Poom - £100,000

- Jose Reyes - £10,000, 000

- Jeremie Aliadiere - £2, 000,000

- Mathieu Flamini - Free

- Marc Randall - Loan

- Armand Traore - Loan

- Alex Song - Loan

- Freddie Ljungberg - £2, 000,000

With these transfers out AW has a £34 million budget now. The squad at the moment looks like this:

GK: Lehmann/ Almunia/ Poom

CB: Toure/ Gallas/ Djourou/ Senderos

LB: Clichy

RB: Eboue/ Hoyte

DM: Gilberto/ Diaby

CM: Fabregas/ Denilson

LM: Rosicky

RM: Hleb/ Barnes

ST: Henry/ Van Persie/ Adebayor/ Bendtner/ Walcott

Wenger has looked at the likely remaining squad and has decided he needs a left back, a left winger and a right winger.

INS

- Eric Abidal - £5 million

- Ryan Babel - £6 million

- Franck Ribery - £13 million

The team that will go into next season is

GK: Lehmann/ Almunia/ Poom

CB: Toure/ Gallas/ Djourou/ Senderos

LB: Clichy/ Abidal

RB: Eboue/ Hoyte

DM: Gilberto/ Diaby

CM: Fabregas/ Denilson/ Hleb

LM: Babel/ Rosicky

RM: Ribery/ Barnes

ST: Henry/ Van Persie/ Adebayor/ Bendtner/ Walcott

Celtic after Joey Barton and Craig Bellamy, the deal for appiah seems to be dead. I doubt a centre half will be joing as we have 6 defenders. doumbe likely to sign. Nakamura to stay as he has said he wants to help Celtics champions league assualt this season, Boruc might leave this summer, if not next, although he has said it would have to be a top European club so Aston Villa don't come under that bracket but he might end up there anyway. Celtic likely to go for gordon if Boruc goes if he signs or not I don't know. talk of Strachan leave for Man City I think is very unlikely to happen as he said he wants to get three in a row.
