United to give Shaw loads o' cash, Dani Alves & Alex Song to leave Barca for England? Arsenal & Liverpool battle...
RAFA WANTS AGGER ON LOAN
Hmmm, interesting tale in The Daily Mail, who report that Rafa Benitez would like to borrow Daniel Agger for a bit.
The paper reports that Napoli are keen on a loan move for the Liverpool defender, linking up once again with his former manager and with Pepe Reina, also on loan there from Anfield.
Agger is seemingly behind Martin Skrtel, Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho in the pecking order at Liverpool, but he nevertheless perhaps might not want to leave.
He said last month: "Competition is what this club has been about and should always be and that is a good thing because we want to win something.
"I'm not the type of player who needs an explanation, I just carry on with my thing and try to do everything to get back into the team.
"It's been a bit longer than I hoped for but when you get the chance you need to do everything to keep your place."
LIVERPOOL & ARSENAL IN FOR MITROGLOU
Quick line in The Daily Star, who report that Liverpool and Arsenal are set to duke it out for a Greek goalscorer.
The man in question is Konstantinos Mitroglou, who has been bagging for fun for Olympiakos.
And it seems both Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers have taken quite a shine to the striker, who would cost something like £7.5million, apparently.
Newcastle are also keen, it says here.
MONACO IN FOR WALKER
Well, the news keeps coming thick and indeed fast for Spurs fans.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Monaco are about to spend some of their plentiful cash on Kyle Walker.
The paper claims Bacary Sagna had been their target to fill their right-back slot, but not Walker has emerged as their first choice.
The Telegraph claims: 'Walker only signed a new Spurs deal in October that committed him to the club until 2019 and it seems highly unlikely he would be sold.
'But that may not put Monaco off testing Tottenham's resolve with a lucrative offer for the 23-year-old England international.'
CHELSEA IN FOR RANOCCHIA
Jose Mourinho thinks of everything, and he has clearly spotted that the levels of slapstick at Chelsea aren't what they could be.
Thus, he has his eye on Inter defender and part-time buffoon Andrea Ranocchia, who has 'slipped down the pecking order' at Inter.
That's what The Daily Express says anyway, reporting that Mourinho 'is hoping to tempt Ranocchia, 25, to Stamford Bridge as he prepares for the exit of David Luiz.'
This could be fun. For everyone except Chelsea fans.
PS I would just like to put this out there. Monaco I am available. I may be 35 now with a duff ankle and a BMI which my doc said puts me into the 'slightly overweight' category, but if you're in for Walker then I must be worth a look?- magicfuller
