1. West Ham looking for possible Sam Allardyce replacement
Sam Allardyce looks set to part ways with West Ham after not being offered a new contract by the West Ham hierarchy. The meeting between the two parties fell through on Tuesday and there were reports saying he was sacked but the club management were quick to correct this through twitter that has not been sacked. Sam however might be there only till the end of the season.
Allardyce has been with Hammers since 2011 and during his reign Hammers got promoted back to the Premier League and solidified themselves as a premier league team. Under Sam Hammers even put on a European Challenge this season and are currently sitting 8th in the table 8 points behind 4th placed Southampton.
Even though this season has been highly successful one under Allardyce West Ham supporters were heard shouting for Allardyce to be sacked after their humiliating FA Cup exit vs West Brom (4-0).
Two possible names that have be rumored to replace Sammy at West Ham and they are Besiktas coach Slaven Bilic and former Everton and United Manager David Moyes.
2. West Ham are set to welcome former PSG winger Nene
to the club after he passed the medical ahead of his free transfer. The move was reportedly initiated by West Ham board rather than Manager himself and is said to be root of cause to the fallout between Allardyce and the West Ham board.
3. Cheikhou Kouyate reportedly OK after a major injury scare
Cheikhou Kouyate was suspected to have broken his arm after he fell awkwardly during training. The club released an update of his condition on Tuesday and he will be back to training from Wednesday.
Kouyate has been fantastic for the Hammers this season and will play a crucial role if Hammers are to overcome a in-form Tottenham side on the Weekend.
4. Fabio Borini to Bologna?
It seems that Borini’s miserable stint with Liverpool is set to come to an end with Bologna reportedly set to offer the Italian striker a move away during the summer. The Serie A team tried to sign the Striker during the January window but the deal didn’t go through but they had agreed to talk about it on a future date.
Borini was the first signing of Brendan Rodgers’ reign at Liverpool, the Italian’s first season was ruined with injuries after which he never really could shine for Liverpool. He spend the 2013/14 season on loan with Sunderland making 32 appearances and scoring 7 goals.
The Black Cats were interested in signing Borini in a permanent deal last summer but the player refused the move as he wanted to earn his place with Liverpool. It hasn’t worked for Borini till now and looks like he will be spending the rest of the season on the sidelines with Sturridge, Ibe, Mario and Lambert all ahead of him in the pecking order.
His Liverpool record currently reads – 2 goals from 23 appearances. I guess it’s time to say Bye Bye Borini!
5. Eduardo Salvio to Tottenham?
Spurs are reportedly set to make a move for the Argentine striker Eduardo Salvio in the summer after the 20£ million rated player was scouted by them. Spurs are also eyeing Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez but will face stern competition on that front from the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.
Spurs may have a fight in signing Salvio as well with Liverpool and Manchester United being interested in him.
Salvio has been in impressive form this season scoring 8 and assisting 5 in the 19 appearances for Benfica this season.
6. Mitrovic the new Bony for Swansea?
Swansea City are reportedly lining up a move for Anderlecht’s Aleksandar Mitrovic as a replacement of newly signed Manchester City striker Wilfred Bony.
Mitrovic has been in impressive form for the Belgian side this season scoring 16 goals in 29 appearance this season. Swansea are in talks with Anderlecht and a potential deal could be worth somewhere around 10£ million.
7. Manchester United
With Manchester United you can’t be linked with one player you get linked with them all. Yesterday United were reportedly interested in Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale and today their focus has shifted to…. You guessed it!! Neymar! They won’t be satisfied with just Neymar though and are rumored to be going after Paul Pogba and anything else that can kick a ball.
