Arsene knowsThe major story that is circulating the Emirates is that Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb) has already signed a deal to become an Arsenal player in January? He will be given the #23 shirt.
Alberto Morgado (alaves) has been persuaded by Fran Merida to join him at Arsenal.
A whole host of other youngsters are also being scouted as Arsene Wenger continues to buy youth instead of big names.
Alex (vasco the gama)
Ramon (cska moscow)
Henri Saivet (Bordeaux)
Eden Hazard (Lille)
AlFred N'Diaye (as nancy)
AW is also monitering Yoann Gourcuff's situation at Milan as the French youngster is highly regarded by the Gunners boss and does not seem to be in AnChelseaotti's immediate plans.
I would like to see what happens when Man United and Liverpool go head to head for Micah Richards for around 16– £20 million and City tell United they cannot have him as they are a rival team. Remember Heinze, Fergie? Guess money cannot buy you everything. Any bid for him from United will be rejected and City will see him leave next season (or the one after that) to Liverpool to replace Finnan.
Other news Liverpool will not risk signing any major players in January if we are still doing well in the league would upset the harmony in the club.
Dos Santos should follow Marc Crosas who joined Liverpool from FC Barcelona back in the Summer transfer window.
Marc Crosas never joined Liverpool and is still with FC Barcelona. club president, Joan Laporta, has announced that Giovani dos Santos will play with the FC Barcelona first squad in the upcoming 2007– 2008 season. He has just recieved his dual citizenship so he is considered an EU player. Get your facts right and do not just make things up.
Spanish giants FC Barcelona must be kicking themselves as they prepare to lose one of their brightest young talents. 20 year old attacking midfielder Giovanni Dos Santos will join Liverpool after agreeing terms with the reds after Rafa Benitez met Dos Santos' £20 million release Clause. FC Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard is furious now at Joan Laporta for putting the releae Clause in Dos Santos' contract as the turmoil at FC Barcelona re–emerges. Dos Santos should follow Marc Crosas who joined Liverpool from FC Barcelona back in the Summer transfer window.
Another line from FC Barcelona is that they are finding Chelsea's crazy money offer for Ronaldinho extremely hard to turn down. There is a chance this'll happen next Summer.
"Whoever said the African Nations is in October must be working from a different calendar as it starts in January. Therefore, if Portsmouth have 3 African forwards, it would be a bit daft to loan Nugent out in January. Do some research, mate. "
it starts in Ghana on the 19th october 2007, do not believe me look it up
To the guy that said about his pals mum going to the same church as brian Quinn.
Do you really think that the chairman of Celtic plc is going to discuss Celtic business in church, think you should be back at school you person.
Watch out for a few early bosmans in January. 1 being a Frenchman.
There is money there Strachan will not be rushed and the top forward we are looking for will not be here until next Summer.
''Bendtner will not hang around just so he can be used by Arsene Wenger as Adebayor has gone 2 the ANC, and then when Adebayor returns Bendtner is sitting on the bench again as a sub Bendtner will probaly leave Arsenal come Jan, and Henri Landsbury could be his replacement''
Afc Bulletin are you an actual Arsenal fan or do you just talk b0ll0x. Bendtnar is rated very highly by Wenger and he will be going nowhere and Henri Landsbury is a great MIDFIELD prospect. The only question Mark is Adebayor (most overrated Arsenal player since Wiltord) if he does not make the grade this season expect Vela (our loanee at Osasuna) to take his place. In January we will only looking for a good central defender and a left midfield player, but do not expect big names.
To the guy who said Liverpool will sign Quaresma, Daniel Alves, Villa. Never going to happen in January I am afraid. Rafa will not spend big in the winter market which is usually is the case, and Alves will never ever be joining us as Rafa slated him in an interview recently about only wanting to join Chelsea or Real Madrid for the money.
We are more likely to bring in another Arbeloa player from a La Liga club, or maybe from Serie A. I also have some news regarding bids that we put in for a player before the deadline from a close source at the club. We had put in 2 bids for Gabriel Agbonlahor but both were rejected. Do not know the price range but I am guessing around the £8– £12 million bracket. We also had a £11 million bid for Alessandro Rosina from Torino accepted a while back in early August but he opted to stay in Italy for at least this season.
Rafa also apparently has wrapped up a deal to bring another defender to the club. A teenager from Inters ranks. Not sure when he's coming though. probaly next Summer. I'll keep you all updated.
Micah Richards on his way to Liverpool at the end of the season for around £20 million pounds. If that falls through expect a bid for Real Madrids Sergio Ramos who is best mates with Torres.
Expect Peter Crouch to be sold for around £12 million with Inter's Adriano lined up to be his replacement. Adriano wants Champions League football and will wait for Liverpool to make their move.
In January Pompey will try 2 sign Saha from Man United if he proves his fitness, also they will sign bridge from Chelsea as he wants more first team football 2 push his self into the England 11
Liverpool fans have got some great hope of signing major players in January transfer market. However being realistic Liverpool will only sign maybe ne or two players in the transfer market.
Contrary to wht a lot believe we will not sign Dani Alves as Rafa has not liked the attitude shown by the player towards his Sevilla team–mates. Also with Gerrard now playing more central role he has decided they need a right–back with good defensive technque which brings in Micah Richards who will be pursued in January.
One left–winger will be bought while Kewell is almost likely to be sold. Liverpool are likely to move for Quaresma. However this deal is unlikely to go through and we might use current left–sided players in the form of Aurelio, Riise, Babel or even Benayoun.
There are rumours escalating for a transfer for David Villa. However Gillette and Hicks have already invested large amount on Torres and can not afford to sign Villa.
Man United will sign micah Richards in January providing he playes well between now and then for £19 million
Crystal Palace are to sell Shefki Kuqi To Fulham in January for £1.5 million.
Jonny Bostcok will sign a new deal like victor moses did.
Crystal Palace are to give a trail to Sergio Flores and Gary Brookes, Wagner (15 Year old) all from feeder club Crystal Palace U. S. A.
Crystal Palace are to sign Paul Diktov on a two year deal once loan deal ends.
Neil Warnock will become new Crysal Palace Manger if Crystal Palace lose thier next two games
Youngests Sean Scannell, Kieron Thorpe, Jamie Smith, Lee Hills and Ryan Corelan Have all sign Pro Deal once 17 or 18.
Portsmouth are actually going to still have Benjani in January because Zimbabwe did not qualify. And I think Kanu retired from international football. So that leaves Nugent, benjani and kanu. Utaka the only one going. If I am mistaken about kanu's retirement, then expect Redknapp to sign someone in early January.
