"Southampton have had a bid of €15 million accepted for Bologna winger Gaston Ramirez, beating off competition from Liverpool and Tottenham." To think, we could of had Ramirez for €15 million. Seems like a reasonable and doable price tag.
Well that came out of nowhere. Liverpool have bought Assaidi from the Eredivise's Herenveen. I can't claim to know much about the Moroccan, but I guess at the very least this is depth behind Stewart Downing and Sterling in the wide areas of the front three. Anyone who does know the player is free to tell us about him.
Saw this on the Arsenal SBNation blog.. read if you enjoy the thought of Fergie getting flustered as much as I do..
As Sam touched on in the article below, Joe Allen is officially a Red now and has been introduced as such by the club.
'It will take time' - Liverpool FC Interview (via LFCfansUK)
Andy Carroll has not traveled with the team after picking up a "groin strain" or it might be a bruised ego or even cirrhosis. I'm not sure yet. After rejecting his apparently "agreed to" loan to West Ham this is potentially interesting. Especially because Dempsey has not traveled with Fulham on their preseason tour. Or I'm making mountains out of molehills.
A loan move with a view to a permanent transfer is being reported. I'm sure there will be more to follow. Click the title for more details. They're also reporting that Alberto Aquilani is indeed going to Fiorentina. So all the players a lot of us were actively rooting for are being shipped off.
Reports that Aqua has been sold for a rumored 7m pounds. It would explain why we didn't see him pay in Baltimore. Now that he is gone, what will we have to talk about every transfer window?
Chelsea captain John Terry has been charged by the Football Association for his part in last season's incident with QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
