Arsenal bid £19m for Higuain, new deal for Bale, Moyes minded to keep Rooney, Atletico say Falcao can go...
JUVE WANT LITTLE PEA
So if Juventus fail in their quest to but Luis Suarez, who is next on their list. Javier Hernandez, according to the Daily Mail. Now that sounds like a massive drop in ambition to us but it seems that 'the Italians want a striker to play alongside Fernando Llorente who is to join from Athletic Bilbao'. Hernandez is also attracting interest from Atletico Madrid.
Hernandez has started just six Premier League games this season but has scored eight goals.
FORSTER FOR CHELSEA?
Of course, this will only happen if Chelsea sell Thibaut Courtois to Atletico Madrid. According to The Times, Celtic see Celtic keeper Fraser Forster as back-up to Petr Cech as Belgian Courtois is clearly too good to be sitting on the bench.
Quite why Forster would go and sit on the bench is never explained. Surely if he has any England ambitions, he needs first-team football. Maybe he doesn't have any England ambitions. Maybe he's read Daniel Storey's piece about back-up keepers and quite likes the idea.
CORCHIA FOR ARSENAL
This is a rumour that has appeared in the Daily Mail before but The Times are running it now: Sochaux's 22-year-old right back Sebastien Corchia is being viewed by Arsenal as a possible replacement for Bacary Sagna this summer. He has also previously been linked with Tottenham and Juventus.
So what do we know of Corchia? He's a France U-21 player who is highly rated at Sochaux. He is an attacking right-back who is known for his set-piece ability, apparently. He has dual citizenship with France and Italy and holds an Italian passport.
So now you know what we know.

Hernandez is a brilliant player. However without competent wingers, it difficult for him to score. And this year we have had 0 competent wingers. Hopefully SAF will shop for some quality wingers in the summer and Chicha will stay and score plenty of goals for us.- Synergy
Only way I see Chica leaving is if the Lewandowski rumors are true.
