Liverpool Message Board
Less than two weeks left until transfer season my friends. On some days I cant wait for it, on others I'm dreading it. Rumors flying about that we may loose some key players. Other rumors are that we might get some much needed talent.
-Fernando Torres has been linked to leave Anfield. City, Chelsea, and Real are offering around 60 million for him.
-Steven Gerrard is on Chelsea's radar. Blues are offering 30 million for our skipper.
-Javier Mascherano is on Barca radar. A bid of anywhere from 30 to 40 million is being lined up. Also names like Pedro, Busquets, and Bojan are mentioned for player + cash deal.
-Benoyoun is on City radar as they look to offer 15 million.
-Strangely AC Milan are being linked with Kuyt as they rate him 12-15 million.
-Martin Skrtel is linked with a move to Juventus for something like 13 million.
-Riera is linked with Barcelona for 12 million, or part of swap for Mata.
-The deadwood like Dossena, Voronin, Babel, and others are ready to be offloaded.
-The most likely is Van Nistelrooy loan. It would make a good deal until summer.
-Also Rafa Van Der Vaart is linked with a loan to Anfield. We should have done this as part of Alonso deal, but oh well.
- Elia from Hamburg is linked, but this i think is unlikely.
- Simon Kjaer from Palermo is linked, but this would only go through if Skrtel goes.
-Juan Mata, of course is linked for 15 million, or 5 and Riera.
- A swoop for Goran Pandev is likely to go through for anywhere from free to 5 million.
-Interesting rumors are Pavlyuchenko is linked for a straight swap for Babel.
- Franco Zucculini is linked with us for a swap for...(wait for it) Lucas. Yea first of all who would want him, second of all i dont think Rafa's overfondness for the Brazilian international(say whaaat?) wouldn't allow it.
Anyway if you have any opinions or rumors please share and discuss these.
leo i think we would need close to £100m for just the valencia trio and that is never going to happen mate.
I would take any of those city players but i agree with you that bridge and bellamy would be top of list. Bellamy has been one of the players of the season so far. Don't here people complaining about him being played out of position out on the left though!
Fresh rumors: City players are targeted by Benitez. Barry. Bridge, Bellamy, Santa Cruz are among the names. I think Bellamy and Bridge would be good signings. Also turkish winger Arda Turan has been linked, and Liverpool are seemed to be leading the race to sign him. Also some say that Yanks might cough up and give Rafa a decent transfer budget, which he would no doubt use on Valencia trio of Villa, Mata, and Silva. I have no doubt that if funds are available all three would be brought in by Rafa. Riera and/or Benoyoun might go the opposite direction then
we should definetly get in there before anyone else and risk missing out in him like we did with aaron ramsey...we just did the yanks to get their cash out. As you said there is the added bonus that he is english.
I think you maybe right that van nistlrooy is the most realstic option. If i could have two of the strikers you mention i would for for pandev and adriano as toni is getting on a bit now and there must be a reason bayern are willing to let him go for free.
As you say kjaer and agger could be a very good partnership and i would be happy if we signed him. I think carras time has come and he needs to be 4th choice centre back, like big sami last season.
I would much rather we got busquets or toure in exhange as part of the masch deal (if he were to go) rather than buying parker.
