TRANSFER NEWS: Arsenal Chase £6m Man, Spurs Track Striker, Liverpool Boost
Here is a round up of some transfer news doing the rounds today involving Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool.
Scotty Parker to the Emirates?
Apparently Scott Parker is wanted by Arsene Wenger in the summer, and with West Ham doomed for the Championship next season, this one doesn’t seem that far off. The Independent have reported this rumour and have made this their back page lead and they are certainly leaving their reputation on the line here.
According to the newspaper:
[Parker is] a key target for Arsène Wenger this summer, with the Arsenal manager finally prepared to break his self-imposed restriction on signing older players to long-term contracts
Apparently, a deal worth 6 million pounds would be enough to take the Englishman away from West Ham.
Miroslav Klose to Spurs?
Klose isn’t getting any younger, but various sources have reported that Tottenham are monitoring his contract situation at Bayern Munich, as he is out of a contract in the summer. Although 32, he’ll offer a lot to the Spurs strike department, being a prolific goalscorer.
Reina to Stay A Red
Another crucial ‘signing’ for Liverpool for the summer, as Reina will stay a red through to next year. He spoke of Liverpool’s exciting project as he spoke to The Sun:
I never felt I had to leave because I wanted to believe in the project but the situation was not nice and the mood around the place was not good.
Fortunately that is not the case any more and we are prepared to take the next step forward and that is where we have to look now.
I am happy here and my family really wanted to stay because we are happy.
Pepe Reina, Speaking to The Sun
So that’s all for today folks, come back tomorrow for more!
