The transfer window is getting nearer.
With all the continuous speculation about who we may buy and who we may sell I thought it a good time to hand the subject over to you my fellow fans. There are a number of players who have been linked with moves to the club in recent weeks and here are my thoughts on those speculated as being potential Rafa captures.
Rafael Van der Vaart
In theory a dream capture and one that has some chance of happening. The Dutchman has admitted he would leave Real Madrid and fancies a move to England and will be looking for a team that can guarantee him a first team place and Anfield is as good a place as any. Fingers crossed.
I like Carlton Cole but I just don’t think this move will bear fruit. Rafa doesn’t play two up front and the West Ham man might well prefer to be a big fish in a small pond, also West Ham now want £20m for the England international and that’s just ridiculous.
I like the sound of this one. The Russian is a proven top level goalscorer and a forward who can handle the Premier League but just hasn’t been given a decent chance at White Hart Lane. If we can get him on the cheap or on loan to begin with, then perfect.
Real Madrid’s excellent defensive midfielder is a top notch performer but any move for the former Portsmouth man would presumably hinge on whether we lost Javier Mascherano as both players are very similar and I still have faith that the Argentine international will come good and return to the form he displayed last term.
Players who could leave.
Andrea Dossena, Andriy Voronin, Ryan Babel and a number of others.
Anyway I am interested to hear who you all would like to see go and who you would like to see Rafa bring in so just fill in the cut and paste bit below and put in your choices and the reasons for them and place in the comments.
