Liverpool’s fourth signing imminent

eljero-elia-von-werder-bremenLiverpool are on a spending spree. First, the Reds signed Kolo Toure on a free transfer. Luis Alberto checking in from Sevilla and Iago Aspas completed his move to Anfield yesterday.

Liverpool are ready to rekindle their long-standing interest in Eljero Elia.

According to TalkSport, Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers has set his attention to Elia, currently at Werder Bremen.

Liverpool's interest in the Dutchman dates back to his time at Hamburg but they missed out on him when he signed for Juventus.

Elia moved to Bremen in 2012 for £5million and Rodgers has tracked his progress - with a potential move now in the pipeline.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have yet to agree a deal with Sunderland to sign goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, according to the player's agent.

The two clubs had reportedly agreed a fee in excess of £11million for the Belgium international, who has won 13 caps for his country.

But the 25-year-old's representative, Guy Vandermissen, says he has still not been informed from either club that a deal has been done.

Elsewhere, Liverpool have reportedly agreed to meet the €10m (£8.5million) release clause written into Barcelona attacker Cristian Tello's contract but now must look to persuade the young Spaniard to move to Anfield according to

Barcelona may well be ready to sell a number of their squad players as Tito Vilanova eyes up the purchase of a central defender this summer, having already forked out £48m to sign Brazilian starlet Neymar.

However 21-year-old Tello is apparently leaning towards sticking with Barcelona for at least another season to see if he can force his way into a more prominent role in Vilanova's first team set-up.

The adaptable forward, who can play up front in an central striking role or out wide on either wing, was handed just 12 La Liga starts last term and only two starts in the Champions League but did manage to net eight goals in all competitions.

The arrival of Neymar is sure to leave Tello playing an even more limited role in Tito Vilanova's first team set-up with the locally born Barcelona player already having to challenge the likes of David Villa, Alexis Sanchez, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro for a spot supporting Lionel Messi in the Catalan giant's attack.

Rumour Mill: Liverpool keeping tabs on Real Madrid’s German star

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has laid down a stark ultimatum to his Germany international midfielder Mesut Ozil that he will be on his way next summer unless there is a marked improvement.

Liverpool are keeping tabs on German international Mesut Ozil after his career at Real Madrid became uncertain.

The German World Cup star has been hit by heavy criticism after his performance in the La Liga defeat to rivals Barcelona.

Damien Comolli will keep an eye on developments and if Real signal they are willing to sell, then the Reds’ director of football will propose a deal.

Liverpool’s hand will be stronger if they qualify for the Champions League, although failure would not rule them out of the running for the 23-year-old.

Real paid Werder Bremen £12.4million for Ozil after he starred in the 2010 World Cup.

At the same time, Madrid is still keen on holding on to Ozil, as they still believe he’s a world-class player, who perhaps needs to get the same patient treatment Karim Benzema got when he struggled during his first year with the Spanish giants.

Liverpool go Gago for Madrid star

Liverpool are favourites to land Fernando Gago after Jose Mourinho told the midfielder he is no longer needed at Real Madrid.

The Reds are looking to overhaul their midfield in order to make a challenge on the top four again next season, and have already signed  Jordan Henderson for £16million.

Fernando Gago Argentina international Gago, 25, is rated at around £15million, but Liverpool are weighing up a bid of around £10million.

The defensive midfielder's agent, Marcelo Lombilla, is reported to have begun talks with Anfield director of football Damien Comolli over a move.

Lombilla said: 'Gago needs to play and Liverpool would be a perfect club for him, Fernando wants to get back on the pitch and return to the top level and at the moment that is not possible in Madrid.'

A source at Madrid told the Daily Star that Gago would leave the Spanish giants this summer and that the Reds were leading the chase for his signature, saying: 'Fernando knows that he has no future at the club.

'There has been interest in the past from some Italian clubs and Aston Villa, but Liverpool have shown the most interest.'

Liverpool to swoop in on a £20M transfer target

David Silva (center)Today’s most potential transfer rumour that gets likely to materialise this summer is the transfer of David Silva to Liverpool FC.

David Silva has refused to comment on speculation that he will either join Liverpool or Real Madrid this summer.

"I have to be focused first on recovering [from a thigh problem] to be able to help my team and I'm not thinking of anything else,” said Silva, as Valencia prepare to face Athletic Bilbao for a place in the Europa League.

"I don't know anything about the rumours and I insist that I have a contract with Valencia that I wish to fulfil." – David Silva, Setanta Sports.

Silva has been linked with a move to Anfield for the past 18 months now. Certainly, we do need to fine-tune the squad with a player who can linked up the midfield and attack. With Valencia in deep financial crisis, no Champions League football for them next season. The Mestalla outfit will need to sell its prized assets to stay on the business.

A player in the calibre of David Silva wouldn’t want to settled for a second fringed Europa League. To be not involved in the biggest club competition in the world, will most likely to increased his desire to leave La Mestalla.

Will Rafa move in on the £20 million midfielder? Only time will tell, who knows maybe Rafa can picks up a bargain or two from his former employer.

Henry at Barcelona

This was just to rub some salt to the wounds of fellow Gunners. Thierry Henry has already signed a four-year deal with the Catalan giant on Monday. But the funny part is the YouTube video posted by beverbrigade, during the match between Villarreal and Arsenal shown that a Spanish fan ran into the pitch and handed Henry a Barcelona jersey! How come you didn't see it coming?

Au revoir Gunners, Bonjour Barca!

Bonjour Barca! Thierry Henry has admitted his love for Barcelona and a switch to Camp Nou are imminent now. Barcelona has reportedly agreed to pay Gunners £16million for Henry and only medical examination yet to be done before the Catalan club parade him later today in a press conference. Barcelona is building a new galacticos at Camp Nou with a strike force of Eto'o, Ronaldinho, Henry and Messi. Frank Rijkaard summer spending doesn't end here, there are more players to be sign. But where is our signing?

Henry, Arsenal's all-time record goalscorer with 226 goals from 364 appearances was signed by Arsene Wenger in 1999 from Juventus will be deeply miss by Gunners fans. He's truly a gentleman and a professional footballer on and off the pitch. All I can say about Henry is, he's a true servant and loyal to Arsenal through thicks and thins but now it's time for him to move on as his age is catching up. He'll be 30 year old in two months time.

Chill out Gunners, at least you'll see new players coming in or may I say former player in the likes of Nicolas Anelka cos we still left clueless by the owners on who's going to join us.

Real campeones, spending spree begins!

Last Sunday, Real Madrid crowned champions of La Liga for the 30th time after four seasons in the wild. They had to comeback from a goal down to beat Mallorca 3-1 while Barcelona efforts went down the drain with 5-1 win over Gimnàstic. While Sevilla was beaten by Villarreal 0-1 at home. The three horses race to the Spanish La Liga title has come to an end now, the summer shopping spree is about to begins but there is one more game left in Spain. The Copa del Rey final between Getafe and Sevilla on 23rd June and then the transfer market is open to all clubs in the European continents on 1st July 2007.

Pressures are mounting on the two new owners of Liverpool over summer signings for the past few weeks as fans have grown anxious to see who will be coming to Anfield. Liverpool's co-owner, George Gillett has spoken to recently and once again assuring all of us that Liverpool Football Club are entering the second phase after securing extended deals to our current stars like Stevie G (MBE), Jamie Carragher, Jose Reina and Xabi Alonso. What does he means by 'second phase'? - bringing players in. Now we will give them the time to initiate their course before we lay down the judgement.

"We're not going to do something just to try to prove something. I can assure you that we are working on different things.

"The first part was identifying a number of our existing star players whom Rafa wanted to sign on long-term contracts.

"That was the first step and it has been done. Now we're moving on to phase two, which is bringing players in.

"For Tom and me, this really is about trying to win championships, and that takes commitment, no matter what sport.

I has read an interesting blog from on 'Time for Reds fans to Kop on' which the author has rally all the Reds fans to be patience and have faith in the new owners. I think he's right for the time being. We need to calm down a bit and let them do their jobs. The prospect of the takeover by George Gillett and Tom Hicks has had all of us begging for a better instalment to challenge Manchester United and Chelsea megabucks. So, I don't see why not some of us are getting impatient over some media hypes. Although, we can not totally believe what the media has been cooked up but this is really what give us the excitement over the summer holidays!

Lets discuss who do you think Rafa should sign to fill the No.9 shirt? Barcelona offered Gunners £20million for Henry and Arsene Wenger wants Eto'o as part of the deal. What happen if Barcelona refuse to include Eto'o? Should Rafa hijack it? I know Henry won't play for another premier league team but rumour from Spain saying Frank Rijkaard is stepping down as the Catalan club manager and Wenger was the replacement. If Wenger go and manage Barcelona, he won't buy player who is almost 30 year old for an over-priced £20million, he's specialize in cashing in on them not purchasing. Does the meeting between Wenger and Barcelona's club director in Paris was to discuss his position as the club's manager rather than Henry's availability? The press could again cooked up a half-baked story on this but who knows, Thierry Henry a household name in the premiership could be on his way to Anfield.

We'll have to wait and see. Just keep the faith!
