The world of Premiership transfer gossip is full of nonsense, but some nonsense is more interesting that the other nonsense. Speculation is rife in the likes of the Mirror, Daily Mail, Times, Sun andâ€¦ errâ€¦ Tribal Football all do their best to predict and/or completely make up the future.
Hereâ€™s our opinion on the Premiership transfer rumours weâ€™ve read in the papers and around the netâ€¦ and if you have any thoughts, pop em in the comments.
West Ham rumors
CaughtOffside Says: Wouldn’t be a bad deal, really. Saviola has less of the body type to deal with defenses “eating” his legs but the equally lithe Andres D’Alessandro did just fine at Portsmouth. If Tevez had to leave, getting another ‘Big Name’ would make everyone happy. Except maybe Saviola.
CaughtOffside Says: Surely not? Two of the top four seeking a player who looked utterly crap a couple of seasons ago? Of course, maybe he’s found his feet and is now ready for the Premiership challenge but we imagine neither Wenger nor Benitez would be able to survive the backlash of signing Diego “He’s crap!” Forlan.
CaughtOffside Says:Keane is meant to have cash to spare, and while it may seem like spending this money on a left back isn’t wise – Baines is Premiership ready and can provide set piece goals, crucial for any survival run since you’re probably going to be given a thrashing in open play.
CaughtOffside Says: Pompey have the worst transfer policy ever.
CaughtOffside Says: Despite many people saying he’s utter toss, Harewood would fit in quite well at either a promoted club like the Brum or as a hard-working single striker in Martin O’Neill’s 4-3-3. Of course, Villa fans will probably be hoping they aim just a tad higher.
