Arsenal transfer news :
Samir nasri is good friends with karim Benzema as they played together in the france squad a few times . Nasri has delayed his contract extension because he is not sure about the future of the team but has said he will sign immedietly If Wenger signs Benzema from real Madrid
Arsenal made a £16 million bid in January and will start at £18 million bid but will settle on and club record fee of £21.5 million apart from that I don't see much transfer action out of the emirates this summer if they do make any more signings it will most Lilly be sakho from Psg or Gary Cahill from bolton but it's unlikely as every big club wants him and arsenal won't pay more than Chelsea or man city
If fabragass is sold there might be an extra centre back may be bought wenger thinks between nasri wilshere and ramsey they can find a week in week out midfield pair

Love all the liverpool links on here and all over the internet.
all the talk about defenders and 'possible starting 11's seem to forget we have glen johnson, englands best right back.
lets get real, cahill won't go to lfc when chelsea, united and arsenal are on his case, they got cl football.
we need a left back, henrique/coentrao seems likley.
charlie adam has had a duff second half of season so unlikley.
aaron lennon being touted for 15m+, which is a joke as he can't cross. Ashley Young is good, but liverpool have to drop a midfielder to change the set up to accomodate for a winger, and i can't see any being dropped right now.
leighton baines, hasnt anybody noticed he plays for everton? not gonna happen.
aquilani won't go anywhere, juve have until next week and liverpool want him to stay.
liverpool outs:

Liverpool ins:
jose enrique
conor wickham
ashley young

in other teams, adebayor is off to fenebache.
please comment.

A rumour picking up pace in Glasgow is Beckham to Rangers on a 2 year deal. .Hear me out before you shoot the messenger! Once the takeover goes through Whyte will fund Beckhams wages himself as RFC will earn a fortune in shirt sales and Becks wants back to the UK but doesn't want to play in England for anyone other than Man U, plus he's a right patriot and loves the union jack and God Save The Queen stuff. Plus he can commute up from London, bit different to L.A as Posh wants to move home with the new baby and for business reasons. Now I'm a Celtic fan, not a Rangers fan just repeating what I heard in certain legal circles!

Norwich tried to loan in Platt earlier this season and it remains an odd choice but clearly, Lambert rates him highly.

This may be the final straw for Davies - who remains unhappy at the club

Nevertheless, Taarabt is determined to play in the Premier League and will demand a move


04 May 2011 17:41:21
Coventry - no real surprise but news from within the club today confirms that Marlon King and Keiren Westwood will NOT sign a new contract and will be free to leave in to summer.

Westwood made it clear to Coventry last summer that he was going to see his contract out but King is looking for one last big pay day at age 31.

Westwood looks set to sign for Everton but a number of other clubs remain keen.

King could move to Leicester

Millwall lead the chase for midfielder Michael Stewart, who has rejected a contract offer from Charlton.


04 May 2011 16:36:59
Arsene Wenger has been linked yet again with a move for French striking sensation, Karim Benzema. The Arsenal boss knows that he ll need to recruit in the summer, and Benzema is top of his shopping list as he looks to improve his squad for the start of next season s campaign.

Wenger is a well known fan of Benzema, and apparently made a move when the player was at Lyon. However, at the time the deal fell through, and Benzema eventually moved to Real Madrid. The Arsenal manager never lost interest in the young French player however, and is set to make a move for him again this summer.

It s a fact that the Arsenal squad need a real shake-up. With Van Persie unable to lead the line by himself, and with other options like Chamakh seemingly not up to scratch, Wenger knows he ll have to invest in forward options come August. With Niklas Bendtner and Carlos Vela looking like potential casualties of the Arsenal cut backs, Wenger might be finally forced to dip into the Arsenal transfer kitty and spend big.

It will probably take about £25 million to sign Benzema, a figure which is likely to stick in Wenger s throat. But if he fails to finish the season without any silverware, the well-worn patience of Arsenal fans may finally come to an end.

23 year old Benzema has bene at Real for 2 seasons. He s made 52 appearances but scored only 17 goals. That sounds like a disappointing return, but Benzema does have previous form. In one memorable season he managed 20 goals in just 36 appearances, so the potential is there.

It s just a case of whether Wenger puts his hand in his pocket!

Why would norwich let surman go to southampton
1. Hes a premier league standard midfielder who is a big part of our first team squad.
2. Hes not worth measily 1.3m now where in the prem hes worth at least 2-3m

There is no doubt Surman is a quality footballer, however he lacks the pace required to play Premiership football. As do a good majority of Norwich's players. Surman will be sold back to Southampton as it's his boyhood club and he's a massive fans favourite! I predict Norwich investing heavily on proven prem footballers and the 1.8 mil roumered to be payed for Surman could buy a replacement easily!
Oh and on a side note just because you earned promotion this does not triple the value of your players! They need to prove their worth in the prem which Surman did not at Wolves! ! !
Roumers i've heard:
Surman 1.8m
Stephens 400K
Nugent Free
Mackail Smith ??

Hi Ed What Are Liverpools Ins and Outs in the summer {Ed002's Note - Take a drive over to the liverpool pages and you can join in the fun there.}


04 May 2011 10:05:38
Why would norwich let surman go to southampton
1. Hes a premier league standard midfielder who is a big part of our first team squad.
2. Hes not worth measily 1.3m now where in the prem hes worth at least 2-3m


04 May 2011 09:59:17

Leeds to sign:

st ledger - preston
le fondre - rotherham
michael johnson - man city
smith - newcastle
mccartney - sunderland
lichaj - aston villa
woodgate - tottenham
westwood - coventry

leeds to sell:

naylor - released
higgs - released
johnson - end of contract
grella - yeovil/carlisle (undisclosed fee)

they will only sell top players such as snodgrass, becchio, gradel and schmeichel if the right money comes in.

gradel has said he wants to sign a new contract.


04 May 2011 09:47:06
Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard will put pen-to-paper on a new two-year contract next week.

The 24-year-old, who has one season left on his current deal, is keen to repay the Robins for standing by him this season after missing seven months of the campaign through injury.

The former Crewe striker will sign what is effectively a one-year extension - making him the highest paid player at the club - with a £6-million buy-out clause.


04 May 2011 08:19:10
Lots of speculation as to who Lambert wants but reading between the lines of his interview the other night he has a list already!

I'd expect the likes of Gill, Tudor-Jones, Wilbrahim, Johnson, and McDonald to depart while some like long serving Drury and Lappin may go if they don't fancy being back-ups. Would expect to see Rudd, Steer, Francomb, Ball, Dawkin, Adeyemi and maybe even Martin & Smith to go out on loan perhaps to championship clubs for experience in case we're relegated.

Don't buy the over the top Owen, Wright-philipps, Kevin Phillips rumours as these aren't lambert type players. In stead I'd expect interest in (not to say we'll get of course) players like Fraser Forster, Nathaniel Clyne, Joe Mattock, Adam Lallana and Ched Evans - young hungry and talented footballers. Obviously bigger clubs will also be interested and their own clubs are likely to fight against losing them but they are the type of players I rate we'll go for along with Lansbury and maybe a couple of similar players on loan from bigger clubs!


04 May 2011 07:11:51
Swindon Town will announce Paul Trollope as there new manager with Jerry Gill as his assistant.

04 May 2011 01:57:42
My Friends dad is the fitness coach at Blackpool and Charlie Adam will be granted his summer move to Liverpool if they offer the asking price of 12.5m

Fitness coach??? Then why is that several player, for FACT, are paying out of their own pocket for fitness coaches.


04 May 2011 01:45:04
Barca end interest in Fabregas and now have turned to the england young player of the year Jack Wilshire. Therefore Roman Abramovich has made the Spanish star his number 1 target for the summer with a deal worth 46m.
