Kevin keegan has already told Ashley who he wants to bring in, in the Summer, and this is reportadly what he told them:
Rafael Van Der Vaart
Deco/Robinho (if they are unsettled by the Summer)
Everton could still possibly sign Johann Vogel (he has not got a club). Arshavin will arrive in the Summer along with a big money deal for Gareth Barry. LeScott will sign new five year deal as he will captain the club and country.
Liverpool FC Summer Transfers Targets
Samuel Eto'o – 19 mill
Deco – 10 mill
Ashley Young – £6 million + Carson (valued at £8 million)
David Silva – 12 mill
Javier Mascherano – 18.7 million (done deal)
Robbie Keane – 11 mill
Wayne Bridge – 6 mill
Rafa Benitez's top targets are Eto, Young, Silva and Bridge if he doe's not succeed with these tranfers he will look at Deco and Robbie Keane.
The Ashley Young and David Silva transfers are more that likely to go through as they will include a LFC player in a swap deal.
Anrdriy Vorinin – £2 million (Celtic or Werder Bremen)
Dirk Kuyt – £8 million (Ajax or Velencia)
John Arne Riise – £5 million (Newcastle or Velencia)
Harry Kewell – Free
Sami Hyypia – Free
Harry Kewell will not be offered a new contract and Sami Hyypia will be offered a player coach role. John Arne Riise will more than likely move to Velencia as part of the David Silva deal.
Dirk Kuyt will leave with his destination more than likely being Ajax. Benitez has not been impressed with his performances this season.
Liverpool will keep Peter Crouch and use Ryan Babel as a forward next season. Ashley Young will be used on the right and left wing along with Silva and Pennant. Arbeloa will be first choice right back and Wayne Bridge left back if he moves to Anfield.
Most unlikely that Chelsea will win the Premier League now it's mostly going to b Arsenal this time but we were the best team an still fighting after losing most of your squad. but surely the Champions League is ours along with 1 o may b both the cups.
after winning all this abrahamovic will b very happy but wd still like Chelsea to play with more flair which will result in the following transfers in the Summer
jaquin or Lennon or David silva
d. Alves or miguel
swp if a suitable offer comes in after a good winger has arrived
Drogba: sorry to say this
Shevchenko may stay if Drogba goes
an Frank rijard as manager
trust me most of these will happen
Expect a huge number of players leaving the club in the Summer and also a lot joining.
John Arne Riise – £6 million (Newcastle Villa Valencia)
Xabi Alonso – £16 million (FC Barcelona Madrid)
Dirk Kuyt – £6 million (Portsmouth Valencia)
Jermaine Pennant – £7 million (Pompey Newcastle + other)
Andrey Voronin – £1 million (Pompey + few others)
Scott Carson – £10 million (Villa)
Sebastian Leto – Loan (Spanish club)
Danny Guthrie – £3 million (Bolton)
Sissoko alrady left (8 million)
The clubs mentioned are ones who are interested
To wound these "losses" Rafa will bring in the following:
Goran Pandev – £12 million – Kuyt replacement
Eidur Gudjohnsen – £4 million – Voronin replacement
Jeremy Menez – £10 million – Pennant replacement
Javi Martinez – £10 million – Momo long term replacement
Helder Barbosa – £1 million – Leto Replacement
Wayne Bridge – £6 million – Aurelio's replacement
Kevin Nolan – £5.5 million – Momo Short term replacement
Javier Mascherano – £17 million
Skrtel already signed (6 million)
Kewell and Hyypia will get new contracts.
Babel will switch to the right side of midfield
Also coming into the squad will be Hobbs, Insua Spearing and Anderson– Carling cup players.
Hearts Summer signings
the whole FC kaunas first team squad
Newcasle 2 sign Senderos and song from Arsenal in Summer
Arsenal will look to sign Luka Modric of Dinamo Zagreb but due to heavy competition on the continent as well as in the Premier League it's unlikely to happen. But expect a deal for Menez of Monaco to go through. As for Ryan Babel expect him to stay at Liverpool for the foreseeable future.
Jose Mourinho will be given a £75 million warchest by DIC for LIVERPOOL in the Summer. He rejected the chance to take over as England manager because at that time the situation with Rafa at Anfield was delicate and felt he could have taken the job sooner. He has realised that the LFC squad is in desparate need of natural wingers. He will sign Florent Malouda from Chelsea, who he rates highly and did not have a chance to work with him. The right hand side will be occupied by Ricardo Queresma, great player Mourinho likes also with the Portuguese connection. Dani Alves will be bought for right back and Philippe Lahm for left back. He will bid for Samuel Eto'o who loves Mourinho + will sign for £19 million. Plenty more signings, my contact does not know any more than what I have given you A. t. m. Plenty of departures to. Up The Reds.
y. n. w. a
Ashley young to Liverpool? no chance. Aston Villa would not sell their top prospect.
Although Liverpool will sign Nasri and Quaresma in the Summer.
