There are going to be quite a few changes at Anfield over the Summer. Rafael Benítez has not and will not announce how much money he has to spend. From the sounds of things there is no real limit. Gillet and Hicks are 100% behind Rafa's transfer plans and want to bring the title to anfiled.

First of all Rafael Benítez will clear out a lot of players, these include Craig Bellamy, Sami Hyypiä, Harry Kewell, Robbie Fowler, Gabriel Paletta, Boudewijn Zenden. All of these players will be sold along with Florent Sinama-Pongolle, Djibril Cissé and Anthony Le Tallec.

As Much as Rafa Wants David Villa he will not join in the summer. Valencia want far too much for him even if Luis Garcia is included in the Deal. Samuel Eto'o will join as he wants out at Barcelona. Eto'o himself stated that he liked Liverpool's style of play and that it would be a dream to one day play for them. Now that it seems like Eto'o is already talking to Liverpool it is probable that a move is in the cards and F.C.Barcelona are thought to settle for a £20 million fee for Eto'o maybe less if Sissoko is included in the deal but Rafa is very reluctant to let him go. Expect Daniel Alves to sign as well from Seville and a new Left Midfielder probably Ricardo Quaresma. Also Expect Darren Bent to come as well.

The Final transfers will be in defense where Rafa will sign Jonathan Woodgate after being impressed with his performances in the Premiership and Ben Haim from Bolton on a Free.

Darren Bent (£8Million from Charlton)

Harry Kewell (£4Million to Bolton)

Gabriel Paletta (Swap to Porto)

Djibril Cissé (£6Million to Lyon)

Total Income: £21Million

QPR will decide whether Mike Newell or Chris Coleman should take over as manager in the summer. Newell is a cheaper option and could be installed by July.


Roy Keane could be set to offer Robbie Fowler a 2 year deal at the Stadium of Light in the summer and the Liverpool striker would certainly prefer a move within England and a Premiership club may be hard to resist.

However Bolton boss Sam Allardyce may still be interested in the striker he tried to persue a year ago.


Juventus midfielder Pavel Nedved will try his hand in the Premiership next season with no shortage of teams willing to offer him the deal he would be looking for. Tottenham want to sign the Czech playmaker and see him as a good role model for some of the young players they already have in the squad like Tom Huddlestone and Aaron Lennon. However, Wigan, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Blackburn and Newcastle are also tracking the experienced Nedved so it could come down to who offers the most lucrative pay packet.
