  Ruben De La Red– Not getting his game at Real Madrid, Rafa has made no secret of his likeness to him and Liverpool could get him for as little as 5 million, but he will only make a move for him if he doesn't get the next name.POSSIBLE

He is not getting a game because he collapsed at a match and has a heart condition so real let him sit out rest of season as a precaution. Look into your possible rumours first
  "one of the top keepers in the world James"

Smashing April fool trick – best of the day
  Real Madrid have a rumoured agreement in place with Lyon for Benzema who will join in season 2010/11 so that he is able to maintain his World Cup aspirations. Previous Madrid president Calderon handled negotiations that involve Madrid paying Lyon 35 million pounds.

Barcelona want to sign Valencia pair David Villa and Silva (who would cost around 130 million pounds) as well as Kerrison and Hernanes. With Valencia's financial difficulties Barcelona are hoping that they can push it down 2 100 million and include Hleb and Caceras, however the deal could become complicated if Eto'o decides to stay.

Juventus President Gigli has promised 'One big signing' this summer with Silva top of the list 2 replace Nedved, if they lose out to Barca they may try Tottenham's Gareth Bale or Antonio Cassano.

Inter Milan are looking to reduce their squad and bring in some quality, Cruz, Crespo, Toldo,Figo, Stankovic may be on their way out and Aquafresca will almost certainly come back from loan along with Ivanovic from Chelsea and Lulinha from Corinthians.

Arsenal will not let their top stars leave unless they are subject to an enormous offer (60 million+ for Fabregas, 30+ for RVP and 40+ Adebayor). Senderos may be part of the deal that sees Bassong come to the Emirates, and Silvestre may leave to the MLS and be replaced by PSG'S Mamadou Sahko. Wenger will fight it out against Juve and Man City for Felipe Melo, otherwise he will opt for Veloso

Chelsea will let Quaresma go back to Inter and sign Zhirkov on Hiddink's advice for around 15 million, Malouda will leave to whoever will stump up 8 million or a loan offer. Paulo Ferera will leave to Newcastle 4 around 5 million and Deco 2 Atletico 4 8 million.

Liverpool will do their best 2 sign Barry (more likely without CL) as well as a suprise move for Eto'o for around 18 million (his wages may be a stumbling block at 135000 a week) otherwise Saviola or Llorente.

Man Utd will sign Nicolas Bertolo from Banfield and possibly Walter for a combined total of around 10 million. Neymar is also a possiblity, however Douglas Costa is likely to join Villareal.
  I said 6 months ago JM of inter will be the next manager at united and people on here thought i was mad now look even the players are trying to ease the fans by saying JM will be a good replacement for SAF.The shock is if SAF wins the champions league again he wil retire at the end of this season as i said 6 months ago.IF he don't win it then next season he def will go upstairs as a director of football for united.Transfers are these: hargreaves 5m everton –campbell 1.5m hull– gibson – loan – Kuszczak 3m west ham – VDS will retire and coach at united or ajax– brown 3.5m arsenal or villa.Now for the shocks ronaldo will go to spain but maybe not real 70m madrid want to pay 50m and ramos but united want cash but barca are looking at stealing ronaldo 55m + xavi Tevez deal made perm 24m plus add ons– and rooney on way out last 2 seasons he has not improved as much as expected and since bust up with SAF he is on his way for 45–50m to highest bidder which barca will try offload henry and eto to pay to get roon and maybe ronaldo But interest from city and lpool and chelsea so whos knows who will get him but his agent is in talks for a move for roon who is apparently gutted at prospect of leaving. Ben foster shud b no 1 but SAF will try get C gordon fron sunderland for 6m. and last but not least ferdinand will play his last season at united his back problems and silly mistakes have made evans no1 choice along with vidic italy looks his next destination. D villa will come 40m no benzema he wants barca move but will end up in madrid in 2010 – ribery will replace ronaldo for 25m and a young brazilian being signed the new pele and bags of talent 5–10m

so harry will still have money to look at other strikers like kev doyle or zigic
  To the guy who said Sorry, to break it to you and anyone else, but there is NO manager in the world who could provide England with a trophy. The players are just not good enough, end of story for the next 5–10 years and maybe longer unless we start producing more talent. Capello will take us to the quarters, which is our level and then one of the really top teams will take us apart easily. And he will have done as well as possible with the players he has.

sorry but are you off your head not enough quality? how about the best all round midfeilder in the world gerrard how about one of the best attacking midfeilders lampard, how about one of the top keepers in the world James, how about the best cb pairing in the world terry and ferdinand, how about one of the most promising strikers in the world rooney, how about owen he may be out of the side but he is a proven goal scorer, how about the best crosser and best free kcik taker in the world beckham. no quality you should take another look mate. on to some roumors owen to go to villa on a free and mourinho will take over at chelsea in the summer.
  David Moyes will sign Vagner Love this summer, no doubt about it.
Joao Moutinho will come as well, and its time to say bye to Lescott.

We Will Be FA Cup Winners 09!
  Summer transfer activity at the Emirates

Despite the January addition of Arshavin and reports the money partly came from Wenger's summer kitty, deals will still be done in the summer. Almunia has become an established number one, however our number two doesn't have what it takes to challenge for this and will move abroad in search of first team and Arsenal will capture the increasingly irritated Joe Hart to challenge, although if somehow Wolves slip out of promotion then Hennessey on the cheap (although highly unlikely with such few games remaining and fellow challengers stumbling) Senderos will go, as will Toure due to his dislike of Gallas. This will introduce the signing of Sakho from PSG and a move for Wheater should Boro go down. Midfield is a tricky one as come next season, at present there is an overhaul of Midfielders and Wenger is desperate to land his man and main target of Giovinco from Juventus who has shot to prominence this season, also with St Ettienne in dire from and seemingly destined for the drop a defensive midfielder in the shape of Matuidi, who wenger has enquired about seems too good to miss out on! This will inevitabely lead to sale of Rosicky (Athletico) and Song (Sevilla) although inter are keeping tabs on several Arsenal Players including Diaby and Denilson. Up top Bendtner will go due to his awful goals/games ratio. Vela will step up and play more of a role and simpson will be back to compete also. Adebayor will stay after only this season signing an improved contract, after a poor season Wenger will want him to prove himself and with a big season next year his stock will rise further. Should he choose to go however only Milan will be interested and need goals with the soon to retire Inzaghi leaving. With Ancelotti unlikely to stay a p/ex for Pato is definately on the cards as Wenger is a huge fans. Despite 4th in table FA cup Semi and Champions leage quarter final with a depleted squad for much of the season Arsenal are improving with this young squad and will compete for the league next season without question. Fabregas will stay for another season then will move back to Camp Nou.
  This not from a source its what i know and i think these are realistic targets for Liverpool. I go to nearly every game and i am from Liverpool, so i hear alot of rumours and these our what our suppose to be Rafas plans.

People who list all these stupid names such as D Villa, Ribery, Aguero, Tevez and Eto'o targets for Liverpool. Forget about it! Liverpool don't have that kind of money and Rafa Benitez is not the type to blow all his money on one player.

Expect Liverpool to introduce some of his youth squad and bring Sebastian Leto back from loan and Kristian Nemeth into the first team squad, Youth players like Insua, Spearing and Darby will get more of a chance.

What Rafa will do is build on his squad make it more strength in depth in all competitions, as he sees his current 11 good enough judging on latetst results, but when we needed strength in depth its never been good enough. So expect to see these type of names linked and these players to go.


Tuncay Anli– Liverpool could see him as a ideal replacement for Robert Keane and could get him cheap if Middlesboro get relegated. I think its almost a certainty Liverpool will make a move for him. VERY LIKELY

Andreas Iniesta– Every season i get the feeling Liverpool are going to make a move, with his recent success in the Spanish squad and getting his game for Barcelona i think rafa blew it when he could of had him 3 or 4 seasons ago when he was unoticed and struggling to get a game. VERY UNLIKELY

Raul Albiol– Can also play as a defensive midfielder were i feel he is a better player, but depending on Aggers situation he could come in as a possible replacement but Liverpool will only pay what they make on Agger. POSSIBLE

Juan Mata– very talented winger for Valencia, could demand an inflated price as Valencia need to sell, very unlikely deal.VERY UNLIKELY

Joaquin– I use to like him but gone off the boil of late. This lad has talent and won't demand a huge fee as he is not a starter for Valencia. But unless Liverpool don't get any of there main targets then this is unlikely.UNLIKELY

Maxi Rodrigues– This never goes away this story. What position does he play in? i don't know. He is a very talented player but you won't see him at Liverpool next season.VERY UNLIKELY

Ruben De La Red– Not getting his game at Real Madrid, Rafa has made no secret of his likeness to him and Liverpool could get him for as little as 5 million, but he will only make a move for him if he doesn't get the next name.POSSIBLE

Gareth Barry– Dont be suprised if hes the first name in at Anfield, Liverpool are keen on Barry still whether Alonso goes or not.VERY LIKELY

A Valencia– This all depends on how much Wigan are willing to sell for, it will be very unlikely as Wigan value him at 15+ million, but if Liverpool sell a few players like Benayoun and Pennant it could be possible, but i expect Liverpool to sign the next name. POSSIBLE

D Bentley– Harry looks to clear his squad and Bentley looks like a name that won't be at Spurs next season. I personally rate Bentley but i think Bentley does aswell, You can forget about Aaron Lennon as he has signed a new contract and Rafa will not pay the super inflated 20 million or so price tag for him now.VERY LIKELY

G Johnson– This a very unlikely deal but it has been a ongoing saga since christmas, if Liverpool want him they will have to pay 9 million for him no matter what happens to Portsmouth, I hope we don't get him as Arbeloa has been a sound defender and with Stephen Darby signing a new contract i see him pushing Arbeloa next season POSSIBLE

Keirrison– His name has been brandished round , never heard of him but suppose to be hottest property in Brazil at the moment and understand Palmeiras payed 12 million pounds to sign him. I find this deal unlikely as as Rafa won't pay 12 million plus for him, it would prove to risky business.UNLIKELY

Diogo– Another Brazilian in the headlines at the moment, only signed for Olympiakos last season. The greek team could demand a big fee for him so don't expect him to be at Liverpool.UNLIKELY

Bojan Krkic– Barcelona wonder boy. Unfortunately due to injuries and the hot form of Henry, Messi and Eto'o he has struggled to get in the team, I see this deal as being a definate, but i can see it being on a year long loan deal due to his age but no doubt the lad has got talent.VERY LIKELY

F Navarro– i remember seeing this player for Barcelona years ago he reminds me of Arbeloa but plays left back. This is a possibility but only if Liverpool happen to sell Dossena, and Aurelio which is unlikely. Also Seville would demand a ridiulous fee like they did for Dani Alves before he was spotted.POSSIBLE

M Owen– He will be a free at the end of the season and there is all but a possibilty he could sign for Liverpool as Rafa could see him as a backup to Torres. But with his annoying injuries and huge wage demands, very unlikely but i will never sweep this under the mat.POSSIBLE


Lucas– The lad tries his hardest but he is simply not good enough to fill Mascherano or Alonso's boots, i think Rafa will sell if he can make his money back or send him on loan and that's where Gareth Barry will come in. LIKLEY

Dossena– Has showed lately he has what it takes to be a premiership player, But whether Rafa give him another season is yet to be answered. He is a full Italian international and is getting his game at left back, So i won't be surprised if Liverpool got an offer of what we payed for him from A.C Milan, Inter, Juventus. LIKELY

Alonso– I really do hope we don't sell him but you just don't no what will happen this summer. Whether Real Madrid come in with a ridiculous offer for him i think it will be hard for Rafa to turn it down. But they will need 20–30 million for him. POSSIBLE

Pennant– looks a certainty to move in the summer ive heard rumours its Everton but i don't really care as long as he doesn't wear the red shirt no more. VERY LIKELY

Benayoun– I like Yossi but is he good enough to take Liverpool, to the next level? I don't think he is. looks unlikely we will sell him as he is a good squad player. LIKELY

Arbeloa– theres been rumours he is homesick and would like to move back home, if Liverpool were to sell i think we could get 10 mllion for him as hes one of the best in the premiership in my opinion. Theres is were Rafa will use the money for G Johnson. I hope he stays though. POSSIBLE

Hyypia– Will sign a player/coach contract and then could go on loan to a premiership club, i can't see it but am happy he will be associated with Liverpool in the future. LIKELY

Degen– Goodbye, thank god we only got him on a free, will definately go down as one of the worst signings with Sean Dundee. Expect him to be back in the Bundesliga.VERY LIKELY

A Voronin– looks all but certain he will stay with Hertha Berlin on a permanet deal. Liverpool will make 4 million from this deal not but for a free transfer. CERTAIN

R Babel– biggest dissapointment, what a huge talent wasted. He has pace, skill, power but doesn't have the brain to go with it. Rafa might send him back on loan to Ajax or even sell him. POSSIBLE

Pacheco– this lad has a big future but hes not quite ready, expect him to be sent on loan next season.LIKELY
  Watford are interested in the possible signing of lee trundle in the summer, and may be offering dean windass a payed–as–you–play contract. They may also be siging young man city striker ched evans on loan in the summer.

got no school today? or are you too young to go to school??

some Real Rumours are Liverpool are preparing a huge bid for David Villa. they could well use Xabi Alonso and Benayoun in that deal. .
Arsenal are looking to sign juventus youngster Sebastian Giovinco and Sporting starlet Yanic Djalo.
Man United will sign Miralem Pjanic from Lyon and Henry Saivet from Bordeaux. .
Chelsea will fight it out with City for Ribery and Aguero.
  Heard from someone working for lawyers for Hicks and Gillett that they are trying to refinance club so no new buyer comung in. FACT
  To the guy who wrote

Liverpool are set to raid Man City this summer. As Rafa is unwilling to pay up for Silva and Barry he has switched his targets to City duo Elano and Johnson. Johnson is seen as the long term successor to Gerrard. If Elano joins then Benayoun would probably leave, possibly to Wolves or Hull (if they stay up). Rafa will then finish by signing Glen Johnson, but only if the price is right. His back up is Onuhoa from City again.

Johnson is in such a mess with drinking and depression. He is fighting outside nightclubs and city couldn't give him away

  Sheffield United to sell Chris Morgan to Carlisle United.

  Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws is desperate to sign Huddersfield Town midfielder Michael Collins in a deal that could rise up to 1m.

Laws sees the youngster as a both creative and goalscoring midfielder.
  Firstly brian Stock will sign for 2.5 million for birmingham during the summer with sean o'driscoll being allowed to spend the money on a striker should Doncaster stay in championship. Secondly liverpool will sign Silva as Rafa stating he couldnt afford him is just mind games again. he will join alongside Aguera who has signed a pre agreement to join the reds with Gareth barry and Aaron Lennon joining also.
  Rafa Benitez is furious with Yossi Benayoun after he declared himself fit for Israel and has now caused more damage to his calf injury. Rafa didnt want him to play and he went behind his back. He will now definately be on his way in the Summer, highly likely it will be a Spanish team, possibly Atletico.
Liverpool won't be spending BIG this Summer, Rafa will add quality players who will add a lot more strength and depth to the team for good prices. Rafa will look to bring in Elano as a straight replacement as he wants away from City, or will try a player plus cash offer for Maxi Rodriguez of Atletico, £8million plus Benayoun.
Arjen Robben, Carlos Tevez, Raul, David Villa, David Silva are all false rumours, none of these will be joining Liverpool. Daniel Agger will not be leaving, Rafa will start to rotate again to keep players fresh, just like he did last season and Liverpool had a good end to the season. Expect Skrtel and Agger to be rotated more than anyone else. Agger is happy at Liverpool. Therefore no Raul Albiol either. Alonso will be staying even if Barry joins. It will be Lucas who will leave to make way for Barry, possibly on loan.
Glen Johnson (£9million) is a certainty, Aaron Lennon(£9–12million) is a possibility even though he just signed a new Spurs contract. Gareth Barry is being watched again, but because he will only have 1 year left on his deal, Villa will cash in for around £10million rather than let him leave for free. Fernando Llorente of Atletic de Bilbao is being followed, he will be available for anything between £6–10million. Rafa also has scouts watching strikers in Germany, France, South America and in the Middle East. These will mainly be youngsters.
  Old firm news

peter grant will become the next celtic manager with lennon as his number 2 and he will call john hartson as his first team coach while at rangers craig levein will be giving the job with stuart mccall as his number 2 and his first team coach will be alex rae
  Adebayor has become a "henry" case, time to move on. This is the feeling within the club and him having signed a new contract makes him perfect for the premium rate. Samassa has been a name mentioned previously within the scouting network, however he signed for marseille in the summer. Nimani could be the gem waiting to be polished by wenger, or if he wishes to splash some cash Mario Gomez would be a more than capable replacement
  Aston villa will let gareth barry leave to go to liverpool for at least 8 million pounds in the summer and will sign steven defour from standard liege.

the other players yhat villa will sign are the following:

micah richards 8million
daniel sturridge free
michael owen free
david wheater 5million
stewart downing 10million
joe hart loan for season
michael johnson 6million
gabriel heinze 5million

players that will leave are the following:
moustapha salifou boro (if they get relagated)
stuart taylor wolves
marlon harewood wolves
shorey newcastle

and if ashley young leaves to go to chelsea then villa will ask for florent malouda as part of the deal.
  I think this proposed move for Daniel Sturridge to Chelsea is highly likely. Lets think about this; how is an english striker going to get a game at Manchester City? I hate to say it, but Chelsea have been good with the youngsters recently, with Di Santo, Bertrand and Sinclair offering promise. This would be a good transfer for Sturridge, who, lets face it, is quality, and needs to play.
As for Jermaine "omfg that's 31 now" Beckford, Leeds will not be able to hold on to him unless promoted (. .) so he will be a target for Wolves and Birmingham, and maybe Hull. But to disappoint the Wolves fan who posted earlier, Mick McCarthy will be priced out of a move for Fabian Delph by Premier League sides. This is due to Delph's 4 year contract, signed last summer, which means Bates will only accept bids of over his market value 6mil, and bids for Damien Duff and perhaps Beckford would not release required funds. I would speculate a move to Arsenal or Fulham is still most likely, although Im not ruling Wolves out, by any means.
A close relative of wolves are Foxes, and oh joy, they are getting promoted too. What a happy time this is for pack–hunting vermin. No offence. Mandaric may give Pearson his chequebook to throw at Dave Martin, Tom Cleverley and Rickie Lambert. Maybe Darren Gibson might wander down to the Walkers for a spell too. If any fans want to try and persuade him to come, he likes salt and vinegar ;–)
But enough of awful crisp jokes, and onto the big names. Adebayor will stay at Arsenal (why should he leave, can someone enlighten me?) along with Fabregas. Mohamad "Zinedine" Zidan and Sebastian Bassong have already packed and bought their tickets with Fly Emirates. Gordon should be on his way back to Scotland, to join Celtic, with Boruc on his way to either Portsmouth, AC Milan or Juventus. Tevez will join someone else. I don't really care who. Robinho will stay at City, where he will probably be joined by Vagner Love and Ronaldinho, as the transition of power is slowly handed to the Eastlands crowd. Its depressing, football.
Thank you for reading, or for simply skipping to here, Malcolm "100 posts" Shaffer
  Maidenhead united are likly to be signing the legendary ex–liverpool defender stephen henchoz on as he is a free agent.
  Expect Barcelona and Real Madrid to compete for the signature of Cesc Fabregas this summer. The two giants are both very keen on the Spaniard, and Fabregas has recently told a tabloid that he would not shut the door on either of the two, however he would prefer the Nou Camp as his destination. However Cesc has always said that as long as Wenger is at the club and he is wanted at the Emirates he will stay. Wenger has said that he will, not that he will try to, but that he will extend Cesc's contract at the end of the season. This should mean that Cesc will agree, as he wants to be were Wenger is. However if Cesc's recent attitude affects his on–field performances and he continues to leave the door open to Barca then let him go. No player is bigger than our Arsenal and no player ever will be. We would not be in a crisis without him. We have been doing fine without him since we signed Arshavin, we have a very similar player to Cesc comming through in Denilson, and soon in Ramsey. We have Rosicky and Walcott comming back from injury. We have a great talent in Samir Nasri, and also Diaby and Song as cover in midfield. I am not saying I want Cesc to leave, I would like him to stay for the rest of his career. But if need be, we can let him go. I would expect Cesc to agree to a new £85,000 a week deal at the end of the season.

In Arsene We Trust
  These are the transfers that will happen in the 1st 2 weeks of the transfer window in the summer
nakamura – celtic to villa – 7.5m
jo man city – everton 8m
c gardner – villa – celtic 2m
defour – standerd – man city – 14m
d vassel – man city – wolves 2m
c eagles – burnley – blackburn 5m
The incomings at aresnal;
A central defender (1 from Richards, Albiol or Agger)
A defensive midfielder (1 from Barry, Marchena or Alonso)
A striker(1 from Bojan, Pato or Huntelaar)
The outgoings
Denilson (loan)
The deal as to those coming in very much depends on adebayor, (wenger will be prepared to swap adebayor for cash and Richards, Bojan, Pato or Huntelaar it just depends which club from the 4 can put together the best deal)
Huntelaar is really coming into form but are would be prepared to swap him for adebayor as they think that adebayor is 'much more attractive'– typical of spanish clubs!
The signings from liverpool are dependant on liverpool getting their primary targets
  Pub talk. . Ashley Young to Chelsea is a nasty ploy to start a bidding war. . . Truth is he has hinted to friends he wants to play in the CL and wants to do it as a RED. He knows that the time is right to make a move. . Will be sorry to see Villa's best player leave.
if rovers stay up
Big Sam is looking to bring in sean davies from pompy as the midfielders contract runs out in the summer and as Allardyce looks for him to be a replacement for tugay who will retire at the end of the 2009/2010 season, he will also make gael givet loan into a permiment deal for 2mil and the same with simpson for 3mil and villanueva for 5mil. he will ofload santa cruz to man city for 18mil and replace him with dzeko or bemba ba for 8mil

if rovers go down
santa cruz will sold to man city for 18mil and big sam will bring in sean davis,gael givet,simpson,villanueva and victor moses
  Man City will sport a new kit next season, in a radical move the Arab owners will change the colour from the blue famous blue shirt to a green shirt, red shorts and white socks (the same colour as their countries flag). Also expect the stadium to be renamed though this is still in negotiations.
  Just to clear one thing up. A few people of late have posted saying that Andy van der Meyde of Everton will be sold in the summer. It certainly will be true that he will leave Everton, but that is because he'll be out of contract. Everton won't get a bean for him.

One rumour I have from an excellent source at the club is that Jermaine Pennant is almost certain to sign on a free transfer. Other than that, all I can say is that there is a small amount of money available for cash transfers. But this isn't a great deal and certainly less than £20m.
  Liverpool are chasing:

Frank Ribery (30mil)
Diogo (10mil)
Glen Johnson (8mil)
Gareth Barry (9mil)

Ribery is Benitez's first choice if he has enough money. Otherwise, he is looking at Silva, Lennon, Sneijder, Van der vaart, Young, Kuba, Renato Augusto and a few others.

There will be no Aguero or Villa etc. .They, at the moment, would command a fee of around 40mil. .something Benitez is not yet prepared to pay on one player.

Leaving will be:

Andrea Dossena (5mil)
Jay Spearing (loan)
Andriy Voronin (3.5mil)
Charles Itjande (0.5mil)
Philip Degen (2mil)
Nabil el Zhar (loan)
Sebastian leto (loan)
Martin Kelly (loan)
David N'gog (loan)
Damien plessis (3mil)
Jermaine Pennant (free)

Loan departures will probably raise another 3mil or so.
A potential 58.5mil deal with Carlseberg will further boost benitez's transfer kitty.

Other potential transfers:

Roman Pavluychenko – Chelsea (12mil)
Kenwyne Jones – Tottenham (13mil)
Carlos Tevez – Man U (a further 22mil)
David Villa – Real Madrid (35mil)
David Silva – Inter Milan (19mil)
Ricardo Quaresma – Chelsea (12mil)
Florent Malouda – Juventus (9mil)
Joleon Lescott – Arsenal (12.5mil)
Stewart Downing – Tottenham (13mil)
Diego – Juventus (20mil)
Gael Clichy – AC Milan (13.5mil)
Keirrison – Barcelona (13mil)
Raul Albiol – Real Madrid (10mil)
Alex Hleb – Bayern Munich (10mil)
David Beckham – AC Milan (7.5mil)
Emmanuel Adebayor – AC Milan (18mil)
  Manchester United have made Lee Martin, Danny Simpson, Tomasz Kuszczak and Wes Brown available. Manucho is being lined up for a move to Rangers with a deal involving John Fleck going the other way. Fraizer Campbell will be given a season to prove his worth but Hull Chairman will launch another bid if Hull stay in the league. Top of Manchester Uniteds summer targets are shock moves for either Daniel Agger of Liverpool or Joleon Lescott of Everton. Adam Johnson, Aaron Lennon or Alexis Sanchez are also on their list. I've also heard Rangers want Possebon on loan but that was from another source
