Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Everton will sign Zamora in jan and will exchange Beattie plus cash for Nolan.
Utd will renew interest in Hargreaves. Injury plus failure to be top of the table has increased the pressure on Magarth and his stance has softened.
Liverpool will make a bid for Bridge and Wright- Phillips. Kewell will go to Spurs
Spurs will also sign Matt Taylor and will allow Defoe to go on loan to Portsmouth.
Newcastle will renew interest in Darren Bent
Man Utd and Arsenal will do battle for Nigel Reo-Cocker in the summer.JONO
MAN U - Naismith
CHELSEA - Chivu
ARSENAL - Reo-cocker and Carson
LIVERPOOL - NeillTo the person who sad that gerrard is goin 2 barca. get ur facts right, gerrard sighned a contract saying he's stayin at liverpoool 4 life & barca don't want gerrard either. now lets get back 2 buisness. LFC will sign in jan El Zhar, lucas niel & kevin nolan.Will people stop linking david villa with liverpool and especially for like 18 million. Hes buy out clause is like 81 million and valencia would not sell one of the best strikers in the world when they really don't need to. Torress will only come to the premiership if athletico don't make the champions league. Heitinga is a done deal for man u for 5 million plus add ons and hargreaves is still a option at 15 million in january. Adu will go to somewere like celtic for months loan then go to man u or chelsea. i wouldn't bet on ribery leaving, seeing how are marseile are doing extremely well in the french league and should get a champions league spot and Robinho won't go to arsenal my bet is that he goes to juventus next year on a loan deal seeing as juventus n real madrid have a good relationship after emerson and cannavaro. So cmon on ppl keep it real !To the dingle. I mean Wolves fan who says they are going to sigh Demontagnac and Wright from Walsall for £600,000 then sorry but you're wrong. I've heard from a reliable source in the media that Mark Wright has caught QPR's eye and they're looking to table a bid of between £500-750K. Either way its a great deal for Walsall as Wright isn't very good and Demontagnac is ok but has an attitude of a great player. Expect Wright to move in Jan because Darren Wrack will be back on the right wing and Wrighty won't get a game next year anyway.People people people, whats going on? 1st scottie parker is not leaving the toon. he loves his football and he loves the toon fans. the villa fan who claims all those big name signings like beckham are u having a laugh?? villa may have a bit of money but they aren't in europe
so don't expect big signings till the end off the season.
some transfer news for all u toon fans.
viduka 2million, rossi loan till end of season, nesta 6.4million, hypia 1.5million and a big name striker/defender for around 11/12 million.
players out ameobi 4million(sheff utd), milner 6million(aston villa), bramble 1.2million (norwich)and patttison on loan(watford)
i work in the office at newcastle uniteds ground i hear the talk and whats going on these are 95% done deals trust me!
ali calvvI don't know why all the Arsenal fans/knowledgable people are saying that we could just throw Baptista back and get someone else, ie Ramos or Robinho. That's not how the deal works. We exchanged the two players on loan, and both have individual agreements, so Real could buy Reyes but that does not compel us to buy Baptista, and should we not buy Baptista, that does not give us the right to demand someone else, Reyes' transfer is not contingent on us getting something in return. It's all cash agreements, Reyes' buyout is 22m euros, Baptista is Arsenal's for 20m euros.
So there cannot be any swapping around. That said, I know that Real are currently wasting Robinho, and if that continues, I wouldn't be surprised to see him move to Arsenal anyway, if by that time both Gilberto and Baptista are telling him it's a good idea. Ribery to replace Ljungberg does look likely, as Ljungberg continues to decline in giving impact performances.To the Charlton fan who thinks that Bolton would be interested in Fotune, Rommedahl and Traore. Why would a club sitting in 3rd place, be interested in 3 players from a club currently occupying the bottom of the Premiership. Although we were linked with Traore in the summer, this was merely a red herring, so that one of the many managers who chase Allardyces targets, was sold, and 'bought' a dummy. Bolton will be targetting Ivan Helguera from Real Madrid, this very nearly happened before the window shut.Two of the leading Hammers Supporters in the TwinHammers Network.One an Israeli originally from West Ham, and another a well known entrepreneur have refused to comment on their reported efforts to get the Hammers takeover bid to become a reality.Some people on this site really must learn to spell! Especially the chap that attempted a bit of french, it's "c'est la vie" my friend! Anyway, all I've got to say is that everton will be offloading some dead weight as soon as possible, with Andy Van De Meyde and Richard Wright out the door. I don't know who'll be replacing them, hopefully Nugent up front, and we can get rid of Beattie to the toon. They must be desperate!Now that United have started payments to Athletico Madrid for Torres, would all the wish list Arsenal and 'Pool fans stop posting rubbish like our "our team is the only team he said he would move to". Accept it and get over it.
Also, I have to dig deep to find only rumours unlike the '100% fact' people who post here. It's looking pretty strong for Hargreaves in Jan. I've also heard that the Kerlon deal will not materialise. He will remain in S. America for another two years.
GK-Lehmann offered 1yr contract or released, Almunia sold, Poom stays as cover. Buffon not a target, Scott Carson is.
RB-Lauren sold to Sevilla-£4m, Eboue takes RB spot with Gilbert as backup.
LB-Bale will be bought, he and Clichy will battle for LB spot.
CB-No ins but Connelly will be loaned out for 18 months.
RM-Hleb and Walcott depending on style of play, Ljungberg as utility man or sold.
LM-Rosicky and possible target Ribery to battle it out with Merida breaking through on either the left or right (opposite to Walcott)
CM-Fabregas, Flamini, Song and Diaby will stay, Gilberto will be sold for around £5-6m, Reo-Coker and Hargreaves are his replacement targets.
ST-Henry, V.Persie, Bendtner and Lupoli are the 1st choice ST, Adebayor may be sold, Naismith of Killie may be bought.West Ham to TRY and complete signings of Curtis Davies, Gareth Bale and Justin Hoyte in January to strengthen up their leaking defence West Ham scouts have been covering these players since the start of the season and have been tracking their progress however it is not for certain that all of them will sign. It will be a busy window for them with Freddie Ljunberg or Theo Walcott arriving on loan as part of the deal which will see Nigel Reo Coker arrive at the emirates for 14mill plus the loan signing. The replacement will be either Steve Sidwell as Reading are worried about losing him on a free transfer at the end of the season or Man City midfielder Joey Barton. Then through the out door at UP will be Bobby Zamora who will go to Everton for 3million and Teddy Sheringham who will join Sunderland and Roy Keane's revolution. These rumors are not just pulled from the sky like most rumors on here these are the truthScott Parker is atrracting the attention of manu and real madrid they see him as possible the best midfield player of his kind in europe NUFC will not sell unless a player swap can be agreed rossi and o'shea + 6 mill from manu or woodgate
(if he can prove his fitness at the boro)+ 10
mill is being banded about also Roeder will try and sign Bridge and Beattie in Jan Nicky Butt will join sunderland in exchange for Ben Alnwick in Jan Also. Peter LewisMWC is set to buy back Luton Town FC.
He will build a new ground at J10 ready for the 09-10 season.Arsenal news & facts
As from our current squad (1st+Reserve+Youth), I don't think AW will buy any big name player that cost more than 10 millions in this season. This may stop some talented youth to join in concern of 1st team oppurtunity. Thus I will see younger squad with mixture of experience newsomers to add depth in current squad to become champion team and this will also giving the oppurtunity for youth players to break in 1st team slowly.
Thus this season senior players like Henry, Gilberto, Toure, Gallas, Ljunberg is not only fight for title but also to help develope on younger squad. But sadly I expected Gilberto+Ljunberg+Lauren+Flamini+Aliadiere may leave to make way for baptista/diaby/walcott/song/denilson/merida in end of this season.
Of course AW is now looking for youth or experience goalkeeper to replace aging Lehman. Also our professor AW will continue youth scout strategy for high talented youth players to build strongest youth squad in best profitable management way compare to big name player investment.
Finally, is not that Arsenal don't have big money to spend but it is AW who reluctant to invest for big name player and rather prefer bring the upcoming youth star to world. Don't you think proud and satisfaction of the way of bring up the value of the players?
AW supporter!United sign Schweinsteiger his contract expires in the summer so Bayern will loose a duo as Hargreaves is going to the same place Torres also done though Milewsky a Ukrainian 18 year old will show up to but only if Reo-Coker doesn't this was brought to you by the master of truthYes the rumour about the Morrocan youngster at Liverpool IS TRUE! The 18-YO is currently on trial at Anfield and playing for the reserves against N'castle tonight (3.10.06) =DX=Wenger has already confirmed that he will sign Baptista. Arsenal are interested in Robinho and a new goalkeeper.Expect Diaby 2 leave arsenal in January , then expect a move by arsenal 4 joe cole .Man United apparently have struck a deal with Athletico Madrid for Torres the deal is Utd pay a £5million deposit on the player then a further £21million in the summerManuel Fernandes of Benfica (on loan at pompy) will sigh for Manchester Uited in January. He caught Fergies eye while playing for Benfica last year and Fergie will finally make a move in January with Fernandes coming in the summer after his loan at pompyChris Sutton will make a surprise move to Aston Villa in time for the next game. Villa are also interested in Celtic pair Maloney + Lennon.OK heres some real rumours from the youth sections of various clubs. Ashley Chambers of Leicester, and Rossi Jarvis of Gillingham are both wanted by Chelsea, but both are showing more loyalty than most youngsters.
Middlesbrough youngsters David Wheater, Bates, and Adam JOhnson could all be on their way to Arsenal for an initial £1m rising to a possible £15 mill (for the three of them) if they develop. This is because Arsene Wenger is actually quite upset at all the criticism of his signings not being English. He may also bid for Burnleys Northern Irish striker Kyle Lafferty. Also Arsenal don't really have much money to spend at the moment, as Arsenal paid Southampton a further £4mill after he made his first cap against hungary. The premiership club with the most money to spend is Liverpool, and surprisingly reading are set to become big spenders, although Adu seems a little out of their league.
Dinamo Zagreb rising star Luka Modric is also inline for a move to the premiership, although a hefty price-tag of £12 mill may mean Italy (or even Qatar) is a more likely option. However, he may not leave unless a very big club comes in for him, as he is a loyal young lad, who has a 10 year contract!Arsenal will choose not to sign Julio Baptista opening the door for the muscly brazillain to pop down the road and sighn for Tottenham Hotspur.Manchester United to sign Torres in the summer for £26 million. A £5 million down-payment offered to Athletico already to secure the deal.
