Football Rumours Archive June 09 2007


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

My dad works at FC Porto as we live in Portugal and have done for the last 5 years. Porto have had offers from Portsmouth for 2 of our players. Vieirinha who can play anywhere in midfield but prefers the right hand side for £4m. He has been comapared to C. Ronaldo, Luis Figo and Ricardo Queresma. They are also rumoured to be after Marek Cech for £2m, the left back who almost joined them 2 years ago. LuaLua and Pamarot are apparently part of the bait in order to sign the pair. I also heard that Portsmouth are after Croatian goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa for £2m from Spartak Moscow although this may not be true as it is only something a friend said althought the Cech and Vieirihna deals look almost certain.

Breaking LFC rumours! Riquelme will join Liverpool in the next two weeks. The other big names coming in will be Tevez, Torres, Simao and Milito. Malouda is still a possibility but Arsenal may trump them.

Wonder why its gone quite on macam front. massive deal on way for and don't forget I told you so a young Brazilian playing for heereeven called alfonso Alves 128 goals in 85 apps will sign June 20th for 12mill with heereeven in for 33% sell on this kid is outstanding. [editor's note – he is late 20's not a youngster] Scholes coming for 3. 25 mill liam ridgewell in also and zat Knight aswell as tommy gravseson

Sammy Lee is poised to bid for Scott Carson from Liverpool if he fails to hang on to unhappy Jussi Jaaskeleinen who is a target for newly promoted Sunderland.


Reading's Seol Ki–Hyeon looks set to move abroad this summer. His high work–rate has attracted interest from Sampdoria and Lille.

Here are some latest rumours on transfers in and out of Preston and Chelsea.

Preston In:

– Commins from forest for free (end of contract)

– Skacel form Southampton for 1.2mill

– Saganowski for around 1mill

– Wes Morgan for around 750k

Chelsea Out:

– Boulahrouz to Bayern for 4mill

– Geremi to another Premiership club poss back to Boro for 2mill

– Makelele back to Spain for around 1.8mill


– Alex for free from PSV

– Right back, poss Dani Alves although more likely Micah Richards or Salgado on the cheap

– Another forward player, maybe Malouda for 8mill or Deco from Barca for 9mill to reunite with Jose

Reading have agreed a fee with West Bromich Albion for attacking midfielder Jason Koumas. Reading were also knocked back with a bid for striker Diomansi Kamara. Rumours are rife that Steve Coppell will try and lure Robbie Fowler on a 20k a week plus pay as you play 3 year deal.

Sky andrews has been succesfull in touting Richard Keogh of Bristol City around championship clubs and it look like he is on his way to Norwich for a fee that will be set by tribunal


Klaas Jan Huntelaar to Liverpool.

As Eto'o isn't leaving Barca, Rafa has turned his attention to Huntelaar.

Expect the likes of Julian Jenner and Derek Boateng to be the players BS spends his cash on. Julian Jenner was impressive for AZ against Newcastle and BS is aware of this. BS has been linked with Boateng before and looks as if he will move for him. Also expect a bid for David Nugent as well because Sam reckons he is a player for the future and will learn well under Mark Viduka and Oba Martins and of course he would love to play alongside a England international like Owen.

Liverpool are to sign Carlos Tevez and Renato Augosto. Tevez will sign for 10mil + Bellamy + Kewell. Augosto will sign for 20mil–his buyout Clause. They will be joined by Florent Malouda for 10mil and David Silva will join for 12mil to replace Luis Garcia will go to Valencia as part of the swap. Silva can play as a playmaker, left or right winger. There will also be a centre back and a goalkeeper

ArSeNaL TrAnSfEr TaRgEtS 07/ 08 SeAsOn

To the person who wrote "After revealing that Arsenal would lose out on Ribery to Bayern Munich several weeks ago, I am now in a position to reveal that they are going to miss out again. This time on Ryan Babel. A deal have been struck between Ajax&Tottenham Hotspur. " Get your facts straight mate! Spurs are in negotiations Snjider and Not Ryan Babel. On The Arsenalnal front, I'm quite sad to say but 'Titi' Henry will be leaving. After publicly stating he is flattered by the Milan Interest. He should Leave for around 25 – 30 Mil with a number of clubs fighting it out for his signature. But Arsenal fans should not Panic as Arsene has been nogitating a deal with Ath' Madrid for the services of Fernando Torres with Reyes being part of the deal. (Reyes +15M) Ryan Babel has been use as a smoke screen for the Torres deal. This deal will only happen if Titi Henry leaves. Another known player Arsene is really interest in bringing to the Emirates is Juan Riquelme, after showing his talents in last seasons champions league semi final match with Villareal, who currently have him out on loan with boca juniours I order to get him back to his best. Wenger sees him as a great rotational replacement for Fabregas as Wenger thinks he needs to rest the talented youngster from time to time in order to keep him on the top of his form, if they want to challenge for the trophies next season.

Expect the talented Carlos Vela, Connally, Traore and Bentner to be introduce to Premiership, FA cup around January as cover for Adebeyor who is going with Toure and Eboue to the Cop of Nations. Bentner will be used in 1st from start of season. Expect Arsenal to make a bid for Micah Richards with Justin Hoyte being part of the deal. Micah will be bought to fight it out with Eboue for rb spot as Wenger thinks since letting Lauren go, Eboue seems to think he's abit untouchable in that position a the moment, hence the reason for his antics we see from time to time. Plus cover for cup of nations.

Fabianski will be used more than Jens this Season, as Wenger has seen that 'Fabi' concentrates more on the 90 mins of the game than concentrating 90 mins on wot silly stunt he could pulloff next to get a spot on the Soccer AM show. (Jens)

Last but not least, you might wonder to yourselves wot about the left side of midfield who's filling that in, well my sources tell me that Turkish international Tuncay from Fenerbache will arrive for roughly 7–8 mil depending on appearences. 'Classy Pires type of player' according to Arsene.

These transfers WILL happen over the next 4 weeks. If anything changes I will keep u posted.

Thats all I have for the time being.

^^^GoOnEr InSiDe^^^

To the tic fan who says we r signin a very very big player name him, my sources (well jnow journo) have told me a certain dutch man plying his trade in Germany is the one, also to the Villa fan Keano signed a 5 year contract a fortnite ago, the big rumour for Villa is mon is after Alan Smith and Andy Johnson u heard it here 1st .

To all the people saying that Billy Sharp will go to there club. eg the guy who said he saw him being took round Carrow Road is aload of rubbish. he won't go to Sheffield Wednesday as they can't afford him Leicester won't get him. he won't go to PNE or Norwich he could go to WBA but probably won't as his best mate playes for Wolves–andy Keogh also his former strike partner at Scunthorpe Wolves can afford him as they hav got a new chairman–Steve morgan. I don't think they will make a bid but he supported sheff untd as a boy and would prob go to them if a bid was made. he is on holiday at the moment and will come back early next week so he will be unveiled unless he stayes at Scunthorpe on Monday Tuesday mayb Wednesday or possibly Sunday night

id say



sheff u–50%




sheff w–1%–he supported United as a boy and they can't afford him

Too much Nonsense is getting written about who Liverpool are going to sign – I work in a solicitors that deal with Liverpool's in's and out's, they are as follows: –

Henry next week will sign for 15 Million – that is deffo, Simao is Undisc fee, also next week.

Eto has already said no to us, and will be going to Milan.

Alves is not leaving his club, so ignore anyone who say otherwise

Zenden will leave, possibly for Everton, although, he requires a move abroad.

Sissoko will leave within nextmonth, possibly to another TOP 4 club in the Premiership, however Rafa wants to keep hold of him.

This 1000000% fact so take it or leave it it is true. My nan is best mates with Pat Rice's wife and she mentioned that David Dein is joining Liverpool very soon, and more amazingly that Dein will unveil Thierry Henry as his first recruitment for Liverpool

Okay people, can we stop all the Exodus from Anfield nonsense. We all knew Stevie G and Jamie Lad were going nowhere (makes a change though eh La?) . Pepe and Alonso have signed new deals and Momo will be offered a new one too. So that leaves all the usual suspects. Bellamy, Kewell, Gonzales–gone, Padelli–gone, Dudek–gone, Zenden–gone. Don't think we'll egt Eto'o or Villa. But the word at Anfield is that Torres, Tevez, and Henry are still on the cards, and Thierry has publicly stated (no secret) that the best feeling he gets is when he plays at Anfield. Amauri is a possibility but I cannot see Bent being worth the Prices being quoted. Anyway, on with the rumours. Van Nistlerooy to Arsenal. Cashly Cole to Real, Lampard to Juve and the biggest shock of them all. . Wait for it. Despite the recent contract, Ronaldo is leaving United for Barcelona, Nani is a direct replacement. This will be a real loss to English football because he is just starting to show his true colours having stopped all the silly stuff. Liverpool through and through but even I have to admit the boy is top class.

Preston north end rumours

Billy Sharp (90 % ) simmo n Billy have shaken on it 2.3 million

kawl hawley (90 % ) free

Chris eagles (80 % ) loan

eddie lewis (50 % ) 500 k

billy Jones ( 40% ) 450k

Accrington Stanleys young 17 year old striker Andrew Smith is set to join Fulham on a 3 year contract with 18 year old goalkeeper Martin Fearon and 16 year old Steed Clayton for £1m. Porto's Vieirinha is looking to sign for the Londoners in a deal worth £4m with an extra £2m depending on appearences.

Paul Merson is going to take over as youth team coach.

Couple of signings are going to be made.

Keeper Grant will join on a Free from Derby, Ray Parlour will also come in on a free from Hull.

Will Hoskins and Marc Wilson will come on season long loans from Watford and Portsmouth respectivily while Defenders David Mirfin (Huddersfield £100k) and Marcus Hall (Coventry (£170k) will join. Lee Holmes will join from Derby on a 6 month loan deal with a view to a £250k permanent deal.

John Oster looks set to Join Crystal Palace after talks between the two have gone well. Osters first team chances have been minimal so although he didn't really want to leave Reading he feels the move is right for his career and has always admired Peter Taylor as a manager.

Stephen Hunts future at Reading looks in doubt as contract talks seem to have fallen through. Hunt is unhappy about being one of the lowest payed members of the squad and now looks set to leave in the summer. Charlton and West Brom are both interested.


With the arrival of Scottie from Newcastle Dont expect to much more, only a Striker and a wide midfielder. expect bids for Bellamy, SWP, Koumas and Diego Forlan. UP THE HAMMERS!


i have no false contacts with people that I shall make–up for the purpose of this site. just an ordinary supporter tryin to be realistic

altho Liverpool are constantly linked with Alves or a right–back we did buy Arbeloa in January so dnt expect to much action there

Alonso, reina, Gerrard, and Carra signed new deals so base of team is the same and will say strong, especially with Mascherano, who we BOUGHT

we've already signed 2 hungarian kids, a swedish kid, Voronin. leiva and leto.

florent Malouda has confirmed Liverpool made contact with Lyon, but Chelsea also appear to be tryin to sign him.

strikers, more realistic are Torres and Tevez, due to prices and Tevez playin in the prem

eto'o, villa, Adriano will be too expensive,

Bellamy may leave, but Sissoko is stayin.

expect a few more youngsters with youth potential being frequently signed and more of the Youth cup winnin team bein promoted to Melwood and first team in carling cup

also unlikely that paletta will leave

and Harry Kewell will stay

peace, love and respect


Liverpool will sign Torres–25m, Alves–15m, Malouda–10m, Simao–12m, Tevez–22m, Milito–8m and Lennon–18m

I work for a digital repro company based in Liverpool yesterday I was called to repair

the fax copier at a football management agency

in Liverpool I couldn't help but read through some of the text that was stored in the machines hard drive.

being a Everton supporter myself this was very exiciting the list of protential approaches by

the toffees was as follows

louis Saha (loan)

Jason koumas

serhat akin (turk international)

sadly I also saw that Leon Osman May be leaving the club to Head to West Ham.

Marvin Elliot And Jamie Cureton Will Sign For NCFC Shortly.

Arsenal rumours 100% true

Arsenal will sign Fernando Torres for 22 million in the next two weeks, along with flourent Malouda from Lyon for about 10–12 million WILL BE HAVING A MEDICAL ON FRIDAY AND WILL BE UNVEILED OVER THE WEEKEND.

Thierry Henry will not be leaving, no players will leave apart from jeremie aliadaire and maybe ljumburg but only if another winger not including Malouda. Reyes will leave as part of the Torres deal

team to play


Eboue Toure Gallas Glichy

Fabregas Gilberto Rosicky

Van Persie Henry Torres

This will allow Arsenal to play great attacking football and score plenty like Chelsea did two years ago. It will also enable us to change to a 4–4–2 with van Persie and Rosicky playin the wings



Malouda–10 mil 100%


Eto'o/ Trezeguet/ David Villa

g Milito

daniel Alves

Portsmouth in's:

Muntari – Done

Distin – Done

Defoe – 13 Mill

SWP – 10–12 Mill

Portsmouth out's:

Kranjcar maybe a swap deal with Mvuemba

Sean Davis – Middlesbrough – 2.5 Mill

Toddy – Anyone – Free

Kanu – Ajax – Free

Lua Lua – Espanyol/ Manchester City – 1 Mill

Andy Cole – Birmingham – 250k

Portsmouth Team Next Season


Lauren Primus Campbell Distin

SWP Mendes Muntari Taylor

Defoe Benjani


Arsenal's first signing will be

1) Arsene Wenger–contract expansion

2) Malouda–a done deal. Goalscoring midfielder/ winger

3) Torres–Reyes+some money will be enough. Arsene by the next year use him to Replace Henary who is growing beyond club.

But one thing is sure. Ljungberg is going out. Arsene likes player who makes runs from midfield. According to him No other player in AFC is capable of making such runs. So a player capable of running all over the field is signed.

Guess who is that. ?probably Renato from brazil.

cost of all three signing will only be additional 20 million.

With Carlos vela and Malouda and Walcott Arsene will hit enemy defenses with pace, power.

West Ham to make a bid for Sidi Keita of Lens this week. Will be 7.5m. This is 100%.


Man United Rumours

Man United have NOT stopped their summer spendin and still have over 20 mill of the initial 70 mill budget remaining. plus any players sold.


smith 6 mill

Richardson 5 mill

Silvestre 5 mill

Heinze 7 mill

Saha 10 mill

the sales come to over 30 mill . which leave 50 mill more to spend


huntalear 15 mill (Fergie won't pay more than 15 as could get him for a lot less in January or next season)

Baines 7 mill (will be broght in to cover left back)

Saviola free (to cover the always injured ole)

Nugent 6 mill (the shocker, he will be loaned back to Preston with the option to recall in January and also eagles may be sent out to sweeten the deal)

also expect Fergie to sign some youngsters from Spain. 2 or 3 will come with a combined cost of 1 mill all under 16– players for the future.

next years team

van, Foster

Neville Brown

Ferdinand O'Shea Vidic pique evans

Evra Baines

Ronaldo park

Carrick anderson Hargreaves scoles

Giggs Nani

Rooney Saviola Rossi solskajear (huntalear?)

To the guy who said he was involved at football at a high level and only posted REAL rumours – not playstation ones:

Yildiray Basturk won't be signing for Celtic as he's just signed a bosman with Stuttgart a few weeks ago! And Roy Makaay won't be signing either as WGS thinks he's past it now!

Celtic will sign another quality midfielder to play with Brown in the centre, it won't be Barton (Newcastle) or Koumas as he wants to go to Everton, or Appiah as he doesn't want to play in SPL – Look out for Darren Fletcher. I posted this as well as Brown about 6 weeks ago (and look where Brown ended up)

Djibril Cisse is keen on a Champions League club but Sammy Lee is keen to bring him to Bolton and is considering a £6 million move for the striker following his signing of Gavin McCann. Scott Carson could also become a target. Lee hopes that should he sign Cisse, Anelka won't leave and instead they form a partnership at the Reebok with Davies as cover.


Torres to sign for Arseanl this week. Guarenteed. Reyes+7m 4 Torres

Also Merrida to be loaned out to them as well.


Gerard Houllier has convinced Malouda 11m that Anfield would be a better destination to go to rather than Chelsea, leaving Alves with Chelsea or Real as an option but Real want Robben. Henry is a shock 18m move for Liverpool along with Eto'o who is priced at 28m taking Raffa's spending close to 60m. Simao is the final purchase with a rumoured price tag of 12m. This is quite some spending considering Liverpool have already signed Lucas Leiva (Gremio, £8m), Sebastian Leto (Lanus, £1.8m), Andriy Voronin (Bayer Leverkusen free) . Liverpool will recoup some cash with Bellamy leaving (7m) Gonzales (3m) and I cannot believe that Pongolle fetched 2.7m. Harry Kewell has some interest along with Hyppia but with Liverpool fighting on 4 fronts Raffa wants a good strong squad and will not sell on the cheap and if those two are happy with bit part football.

David Nugent to Everton is a done deal and he will play his first game for the club in a pre–season friendly at Gigg Lane against his former club Bury.

Nicky Adams is set to snub burys offer of a new contract and join Preston but will be loaned back for the entire of the 2007–08 season to help progress him,

Bury Defender Colin Woodthorpe is expected to sign a deal as player coach with Jim Gannons Stockport County

Emile Heskey is top of Gareth Southgates wish list as he looks for a replacement for Mark Viduka and the soon departing Yakubu.

Las Palmas centre back Aythami looks set to join Reading


READING will sign Cole Skuse from Bristol City for one million pounds. The deal is done and the 21 year old with have a medical at the Madejski Stadium next week.

As a West Brom fan, I have been deeply saddened to hear that Jason Koumas is going to Reading.

I have close contact with Chelsea, and I have been hinted that Malouda is days away from signing along with Quaresma who is a good friend of Mourinho from Porto. daniel Alves will not be going Chelsea after not agreeing terms.

Barnsley football club will today complete the signings of 3 players.

They are the following

Marciano Bruma. Andy Johnson and Kayodi Odajayi

Deals are hoping to be finalised by this afternoon


Phil Jagielka, Jason Koumas and David Nugent are David Moyes' top 3 transfer targets whilst he is also eyeing Leighton Baines, Ryan Taylor and Bolo Zenden.


Likely Everton transfers this summer are:


Phil Jagielka – £4.0m

Leighton Baines – £4.5m

Dave Nugent – £4.0m rising to £5.0m

Kieran Richardson – £3.5m

Manuel Fernandes – One–year loan

Justin Mapp – One–year loan


Alessandro Pistone – out of contract

Richard Wright – out of contract

James McFadden – between £3.0m and £4.0m to Derby or Rangers

Andy van der Meyde – £3.0m to Ajax or FC Twente

Porto midfielder Bruno Gama is set to take a medical at Reading, after a £750k fee was agreed.


Remember the guy who said "Barton won't sign for Everton he will be signing for Newcastle" a few weeks ago, well that was me. So I don't lie.

Everton have been linked to Riqulme latly. He won't be coming. His family are home sick and don't like that European lifestyle he won't be coming to Everton.

Fernandes will sign on a season long loan.

Jagelka will sign for 3.5mil rising to 4mil depending on Clauses. The deal will take longer than thought though to complete.

Baines will sign for 3mil

So Everton ins are:

Baines 3mil

Jagelka 4mil

Fernandes loan

Total: 7mil

Nugent will sign in JANUARY for 3mil.

I would tell you my source, but id get shot. Just Mark my words these are true.

Daniel Alves won't go to Chelsea because he is waiting for Liverpool to make a bid for him. They will because they have done for the last two years but they counldn't afford him and Rafa has always been an admirer of him. Also Simoa will sign for Liverpool also Florent Malouda will be going to Liverpool and not Arsenal because Arsenal cannot aford him and he has already said he would like to move to Liverpool

Not only was Thierry Henry undergoing a pre–medical at Melwood, LFC Training ground but he was also seen in an estate agents looking for a house in Frodsham, home to the likes of Cisse.

Stevie G

Dan the Main Forest man here again, firstly to the guy that said Leon Best id off to Coventry behave! He is ours now, nottingham born and bred. Right, imaging my suprise last night when I was dining with MA to hear him receive a call from Kevin Nicholls agent. The lad is desperate to flee Leeds and any move to Luton will be blocked. Dennis Wise is keen on Wes Morgan so a deal may yet be done. Remember only I have the inside knowledge. Pillow talk rulesDan the man.

Whittikar to Celtic done deal

Man United rumbling: SAF has been approached for Wes Brown as reported by Big Sam which he is considering using as part of a possible Owen move. If this happens it will mean Pique returning from loan is a must and will not be making his current loan a permanent move to La Liga. The striker situation at Man United will come to a conclusion as soon as the Spanish league ends due to Saviola refusing to anounce his decision on his new destination as this is a key part of the who stays at OT.

=Man Unitedmick=

Arsenal are going to try and sign 4 players to try are rejuvinate there chances of once again challenging for the Premiership. All media stories (Reo–Coker, Malouda) are Wengers usual cover stories to distract other potential buyers. Curtis Davies £8 mil (West Brom), Samir Nasri £10 mil (Marseille), Quaresma £6.5 mil (Porto) and Saviola £Free (Barcelona) .

Ok, I'm not going 2 say I work in Burger van outside a football ground and I'm not going 2 say I'm a managers relative however I do know that Boro are looking to bring a striker to replace Mark Viduka. This could mean selling Yakubu to Portsmouth for 12m in order to get funds for 2 strikers.

The targets are

Aliardiere (2m – Yak Stays)

Leroy Lita (4m – Yak Stays)

David Nugent (7m – Yak Leaves)

Craig Bellamy (7–8m Yak Leves)

However while speaking to G. Owens (Youth team winger) he assures me Yakubu will more than likely stay with Aliardiere and Lita coming in as Malcolm Christie isn't Premiership Quality according to G. Southgate.

Rumours on the Tyne include Obafemi Martins been shipped off to another club, Valencia are most likely suitors with a 14m bid however there is talk of Adriano joining from Inter to keep Martins happy as they used to play together at Inter, although personally can't see this happening.

Luke Young is still wanted for right back while Leighton Baines is been tracked for Left Back (if Liverpool scupper any deal expect a bid for Fabio Aurelio for around 3.5m)

Man United will more than liekly sell Louis Saha to Lyon for 7–8m and will use the Funds to sign in Kevin Doyle (Man United fan) from Reading for around 6m. Javier Saviola will also come in on a free (Fergie willing to take a chance due to no fee) . No more big signings will be happening on the red side of Manchester. John Heitinga is still a possibility for 5m for cover at right back but any deal will be linked to defender sales. Silvestre will be leaving for around 4m, Newcastle possible destination but French clubs also in the running. Keiron Richardson is been chased by Sheffield United but Premiership interest comes from Everton and Aston Villa, expects bids of around 3m. Craig Gordon is still a possibilty for a new GK at Man United but they might try and broker a deal where they can sign him on teh cheap for next season (contract up next summer and can go on a bosman), the fee would be to guarentee getting him.

Thats all for now !


Momo Sissoko is to stay at Liverpool. After many hours of troubled thoughts about his position at the Reds Momo has decided to stay. He knows it means fighting for a place but he is willing to do that. Rafa loves his all out commitment and his style of play but he knows that Momos passing needs to be worked on. Momo will have one on one training sessions at Melwood to improve his passing. This will be done with the help of former Liverpool great Jan Molby. The rest of the Liverpool squad are to work on passing, dribbling, shooting, set pieces and especially running.

Jermain Defoe and Darren Bent are Ferguson's top 2 strike targets although Fernando Torres is on the list. Ferguson is sure to sign 1 striker this summer.


I'm good friends with Mrs Martian Jol and she told me Spurs are signing Wesley Sneijder, Van Der Vaart and Podolski.

I love Reading the rumours on here. but hate having to Hunt through the mountains of that is posted.


You just look stupid (re the Anderson work permit poster) .

Also. saying Arsenal "missed out" on Babel is like saying they "missed out" on Ribery. neither player was wanted by AW which is why they are not joining Arsenal.

To all of you that are so sure Henry is leaving. unless you have a taped interview where Henry says "I want to leave Arsenal", stop being so gulible as to believe all you hear. The media is PAID to create rumours, especially when there isn't any!

NOW. onto the real Arsenal Rumours.

1) Renato Augusto – dubbed as the next Kaka. A 20 year old attacking midfielder who's game is to actually set up his team mates with goals rather than score them himself. He is a player with excellent on the ball skill and speed. Currently playing with Flamengo and being targetted by other top clubs such as Man United and Chelski.

2) Andres Guardado – A 20 year old left sided mexican winger. He'll cost £3 million and although he's a short player – he does have electric pace and amazing skill. Has a thunderous left foot on him as well and is a key player for teams that counter attack. He was included in the World Cup squad for Mexico last year and is highly regarded by Hugo Sanchez.

3) Angel Di Maria – Grimandi has been watching this 19 year old playing for Rosario Central. Apparently Grimandi has requested that Wenger put a bid in for him.

4) Jimmy Briand – The next Thierry Henry apparently! A 21 year old striker playing for Stade Rennais in France. People have been comparing this youngster to Thierry and apparently he's shown some brilliant skill too which is very "Henryesque".

Thats all for now.

Eboue's Hand

Major Plymouth Argyle Rumours, an unamed American business man is currently in disscussions with Paul Stapleton about investing in the club. At this stage it is currently unclear of his long term intentions but he is believed to be willing to invest around 5–8 million in return three seats on the board and a 50% stake in the club. Paul Stapleton and his fellow directors are said to be keen on the idea.

Saviola, Eto'o and Gudjohnson could all be heading for the exit at Barcelona with Thierry Henry set to arrive. Frank Rijkaard is also hoping to sign Alfonso Alves or Klaas Jan Huntelaar to challenge Henry for a starting place. There is a chance that if Rijkaard snaps up 1 striker, Gudjohnson could stay.
