English Premier League - Transfer Rumours and News Latest

We've done a scan of the latest goss, rumours and tittle tattle on the English Premier League and here's the ones that stood out:

Sven-Goran Eriksson Manchester City's manager is to launch a bid for Diego Milito from Real Zaragoza. He's long been linked with various clubs but I am not convinced myself. He's took until age 28 to have a good season in European football and is not scoring as many this season. One season wonder methinks. Other Citeh' related transfer gossip has us hearing that Swedish keeper Andreas Isaksson looks set to leave and that Palermo might be after Rolando Bianchi (the Guardian).

Still on our Sky Blue friends, Manchester City are trying to butt in on Chelsea's move for Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka (The Sun). I would love Liverpool to sign him after selling Kuyt - Anelka for a net 4 mill would be great! Meanwhile, the Chelsea Chav's are interested in a transfer for Hamburg's wide midfielder Rafael van der Vaart but face a bidding war with Juventus according to the Telegraph.

The Scum (Sun) transfer news is also saying that Everton will pay £4m for Valencia captain David Albelda who has fell out with Ronald Koeman. Other 'bitter blue' (You'll know what means if you come from Liverpool) transfer related goss has Mikel Arteta insisting he is happy at Everton despite admitting he is flattered by interest from Atletico Madrid. However according to the Mirror he has "an attachment" to Athletico and would like to play for them!

Much transfer speculation has surrounded Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko and the latest rumour is that he is interesting Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan.Again from the Mirror.

Aston Villa are about to splash £10m on a double raid for Barcelona striker Eidur Gudjohnsen and Arsenal defender Justin Hoyte, according to the Daily Star. Gudjohnsen would be a great buy and would work well with Carew, however it seems to me Villa are always mentioned in transfer talk simply because they have bought relatively few new players and have a rich owner.

Last and definitely least is the stunning news that Everton will not allow striker James McFadden to join Celtic. The Telegraph underwhelmed the nation with that one.
