Having pretty much tied up the signing of Sylvain Marveaux on a pre-contract deal, Liverpool will turn their sights in the summer to the following:

Jose Enrique (10mil)
Neven Subotic (15mil)
Eden Hazard (22mil)
Yann M'Vila (14mil)

Liverpool will also try and tie up signings for Oxlade-Chamberlain and James McCarthy each for 6mil but a huge amount of add ons. McCarthy will then be loaned back to Wigan if they are still in the top flight.

Dalglish will also try and get Suso, Sterling, Coady, Robinson, Flannagan, Ince and Ecclestone more involved with first team training to try and deepen the squad.

Konchesky, Cole, Kyrgiakos, Insua, Jovanovic, Aquilani, Poulsen, El Zhar and Degen will all leave, raising roughly 30mil but significantly reducing the wage bill as Cole, Aquilani, Jovanovic and Poulsen are on 90k, 75k, 60k, 50k per week respectively. This younger but more talented squad will create resale value in the club, something it does not currently have.

Levy & lewis are only a short way into their ambition with spurs, investment on and off the field, the return to the ndp project, or the location of walthamstow or enfield? reports of modric to man utd for £40 odd million is a very good starting offer! although levy will be instructed NOT to sell! modric has i believe another 5 years remaining on his contract and has stated his next move should it happen will be in two to three seasons after this one AND only then abroad

Hey Ed, obviously it depends on when he gets fit again but where do you think Smudger will go, as obviously Newcastle will want rid?

{Editor's Note: It will be down to money. I am sure Leeds would be an option if there were no financial issues.}

Norwich will sign Rob Edwards from Blackpool and a striker from the premier league to cover for the injured Leon Barnett and Chris Martin

Have heard the rumour that Edwards is going out on loan pretty soon as well.

However it was mentioned up here that Ipswich, Preston and PLymouth were also after him.

Also heard that Brett Ormerod is wanted on loan at Oldham and his old stomping ground Accrington Stanley.
