TRANSFER NEWS: Arsenal and Liverpool Line Up Summer Targets

By on April 28, 2011

Today, it is just the usual, players rumoured to be coming in, several rumoured to be going out. So here are a few stories doing the rounds involving Arsenal and Liverpool.

Hulk (Porto to Arsenal)

Arsenal are looking to add reinforcements to their strikeforce as they seek to find another striker whom can add to the talents of current strikers Robin Van Persie and Moroccan striker Maroune Chamakh.

Hulk is reportedly on a transfer list which is supposedly belonging to Arsene Wenger that has been ‘leaked’ to the public. The Brazilian’s future doesn’t seem to be at Porto, with many big clubs being potential suitors and it seems that he won’t stay in the Dragao for much longer according to reports.

Joey Barton and Adel Taarabt (Newcastle/QPR to Liverpool FC)

Liverpool are eying up a move for Joey Barton and Adel Taarabt in the coming summer transfer window, according to reports. Kenny Dalglish is looking to bolster the midfield and the duo would be able to do just that.

Taarabt can play as a winger or just behind the strikers ‘in the hole’ whilst Joey Barton plays as a holding center midfielder. Not sure Barton will be welcomed at Liverpool though, after all he had drama there several years ago. Taarabt is rumoured to be valued at roughly around 10 million pounds and Barton commands a value of 8 million.

    Barton to Liverpool will never happen. Firstly he is too old and secondly whilst he is a capable player, he is not good enough to take liverpool in the direction they want to go.

    The article is just mischief making at best.

    Chamber & stephen u got it wrong. Bad boy Barton is a very good player. I love his tackles and he’s also commited 2 the game. He can be our defensive midfielder at 28 he is nt 2 old. Let’s forget about his behaviour n concentrate on his good aspect of football. Nice 1 onome. Comolli pls seal the deal in time.

    Adel Taarabt is a true magician and a rare find. Many top clubs like Chelsea, Man United, Man City, Real Madrid and possibly Barcelona will be fighting for him. Liverpool will need to be prepared to up their bid once these clubs enter the bidding process. My take on this is 20 Million will do the trick for now.

    Hulk to arsenal? We dont need two left footed strikers. Heck get Torres for cheap. hahaha just kidding. Hulk would be a great buy but Torres would bring his pace and skill to meet the best midfielder in the world, Super Cesc. We would be unstoppable
