Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas could be lucky twice in his attempts
to bring in new players at White Hart Lane. Schalke midfielder Lewis
Holtby could be joining before the transfer window close, and latest
are that Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke also are close to
Newcastle are eager to sign more players to their team, with Pierre
Emerick-Aubameyang a close target. The St. Etienne forward could be
another new signing at the St James Park before the close, and a
desperate move from Alan Pardew to secure the Premier League status.
Liverpool are still eager to sign Tom Ince, but will face
competition from other clubs. The flank midfielder is one of few that
has had a good season at Blackpool who are struggling at the moment.
Reading are reported to be ready to give Ince a first team guarantee,
which could be impossible at Anfield.
Aston Villa defender Stephen Warncok looks finished at Aston
Villa. Leeds and West Ham are two clubs interested in signing the former
England international, who has earlier this season spent time on loan at
Liverpool looks close to finalise the move for Inter midfielder
Philippe Coutinho. The player will move to Anfield for a fee of £
7.5 million. Coutinho joined Inter from Vasco da Gama in 2010, and still
only 20 years of age.
Harry Redknapp is not a satisfied man at the moment, as his QPR
are struggling. The FA Cup defeat to MK Dons was another blow in the
face and now more players could be on the way out of Loftus Road, in a
desperate attempt to save the rest of the season.
Gremio could be next for Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates. The
Uruguay international has not managed to convince either Kenny Dalglish
or Brendan Rodgers that he is a certain first choice at Anfield, and now
a move to Brazil looks likely.
Leeds manager Neil Warnock might have to surrender in his attempt to
keep forward Luciano Becchio. Trabzonspor is close to finalise a
£ 3 million move.
Jefferson Montero is the latest name to be reported as a Wigan
target. The 23 year winger and Ecuadorian international could be
finalising the deal just in time before the transfer window close.
Montpellier defender Henri Bedimo is a close target for West Ham.
The 28 year old Cameroon international has played for a number of clubs
before joining Montpellier in 2011. He has a past at Grenoble, Toulouse,
Le Havre and Lens.
Middlesbrough could be next for the former England international
Kieron Dyer. Dyer (34) is a free agent and looks likely to agree
terms to join the promotion push at Riverside.
Blackburn are one of several Championship clubs chasing Blackpool
defender Alex Baptiste. Reports suggests that it will take £ 1
million to win the race for the player. Leicester and Leeds are also
clubs earlier linked with Baptiste.
Notts County are favourites to sign Jason Scotland. The former
Swansea forward has left Ipswich after a contract settlement and are now
free to join a new club. The 33 year old Trinidad and Tobago
international is also a target for Barnsley as they try to climb out of
their current relegation position.
Everton manager David Moyes could be lucky in his chase for Barnsley
defender John Stones. The 18 year old England U.19 international
is one of many young stars in the Championship that could become Premier
League players very soon.
Jeffrey Sarpong is at the moment on a trial at Stoke City. The 24
year old former Ajax midfielder has left Real Sociedad and is now
looking for a new chance and Tony Pulis will have a closer look to find
out if the former Dutch U.21 international is a player to sign.
Derby winger Kieron Freeman is a target for Ipswich. Nigel Clough
could be willing to let the highly rated midfielder leave, if the price
Swindon winger Matt Ritchie is a target for a number of
Championship clubs. The 23 year old former Portsmouth player might be
difficult to keep at County Ground, with the financial problems
currently present. Wolves, Crystal Palace and Burnley are clubs reported
to be interested.
Norwich forward Simoen Jackson is close to a loan move to Derby.
The 25 year old Canadian international is not certain of a first team
place at Carrow Road and a loan move could be good for the former
Gillingham player who has scored 17 goals in 71 league appearances for
Bastia midfielder Florian Thauvin is a target for Newcastle. The
20 year old midfielder is regarded as one of the best young talents in
French football. If Thauvin moves to St James Park, he will feel at home
with a huge colony of French players currently playing for Newcastle.
WBA forward Peter Odemwingie would consider an offer from QPR.
The London club are by many players looked up on as a very interesting
club to join. The fact that they managed to sign Loic Remy, could make
it easier for Harry Redknapp to capture new potential targets.
Fulham are one of many clubs linked with Birmingham goalkeeper Jack
Butland. Martin Jol is also at the moment competing with West Ham
for the signature of 22 year old Troyes midfielder Fabrice N'Sakata.
