So we’re back to the daily column here on TLF and well, boy have we got some gossip for you today. We got some from Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.
So straight to it!
Tottenham have Zero Interest in Joe Cole
I guess the title says it all, doesn’t it? talkSport has exclusively revealed that after some digging, Tottenham are in fact not interested in making a move for Liverpool FC outcast Joe Cole.They name the source as ‘a source close to Tottenham’ so perhaps it is true.
Tottenham chased him after he was flogged from Stamford Bridge in the summer last season, but Liverpool offered him better terms and at that point, he viewed Liverpool as the strongest side that was fighting for his signature.
Finally, will the saga end?
This is me talking about the deal of Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas as Arsenal have finally received an offer ‘worthy’ of their skipper’s value and their taking in deeply into consideration. The Daily Mirror has reported that a swap will be added into the deal for Barcelona.
Barcelona are intent on using their talented young midfielder Thiago Alcantara as part of a 50 million pound deal. He has found his chances limited at the Nou Camp and Arsenal are willing takers of the youth, so it just might work out in favour of Arsenal here. Remember Fernando Torres, anyone?
Liverpool Up Bid For Henderson
The bidding war for Henderson has reached up to Darren Bent levels as Liverpool have placed a bid of 18 million pounds for the (sometimes) English International. Dalglish is intent on adding youthful British players to the side and views Henderson as the perfect fit for his midfield.
Sunderland insiders are shocked by how quickly Liverpool have upped their offer. They were thinking of a £16 million sale, but now their negotiators reckon they may get even more.
The Daily Mirror
So it looks like Sunderland are laughing all the way to the bank here.
