    Gossip: Arsenal must stump up £32m for Quintero, Liverpool help United bid for Hummels, Kagawa to Atletico and more...
    8/1/2014 8:13:43 AM
    Morning all. How are we today?
    8/1/2014 7:18:52 AM
    Let's begin with the news that Liverpool are close to sealing deals for full-back duo Alberto Moreno and Javi Manquillo.

    The deal for Manquillo is reported to be a loan, possibly for two seasons, with a permanent deal worth in the region of £6m following at the end of that.

    Meanwhile, Moreno is expected to cost the Reds £20m.

    Come this way for the full story.
    8/1/2014 7:23:22 AM
    Samuel Eto'o is holding talks with West Ham over a possible move to Upton Park as Sam Allardyce seeks cover for the injured Andy Carroll.
    8/1/2014 7:24:11 AM
    The Hammers also snapped up Carl Jenkinson on a season-long loan from Arsenal last night.
    8/1/2014 7:24:57 AM
    Liverpool are planning to loan Tiago Ilori to Borussia Dortmund, which could inadvertently aid Manchester United's bid for Mats Hummels.
    8/1/2014 7:26:05 AM
    According to Spanish newspaper AS, Arsenal are eyeing a move for Alvaro Arbeloa as a possible replacement for Thomas Vermaelen. We're not really sure how that works.
    8/1/2014 7:28:29 AM
    Atletico Madrid's president says the La Liga champions are not interested in signing Santi Cazorla, Fernando Torres or Javier Hernandez.
    8/1/2014 7:33:07 AM
    Arsenal have been linked with a £16m move for exciting Porto prospect Juan Quintero, but the playmaker's agent has played down speculation. He told MaisFutebol: "Porto have never talked about negotiating the sale of Juan Quintero.

    "Of course, there are clubs interested. There is a lot of interest from clubs from Spain and England in the player.

    "But in order for him to leave, a club has to pay his buy-out clause."
    8/1/2014 7:35:47 AM
    That buy-out clause is rumoured to be 40 million euros.
    8/1/2014 7:36:14 AM
    Morning F365! Hopefully we get some DONE DEALIOS today!
    8/1/2014 7:36:17 AM
    Morning F365, lots of good gossip there, today is going to be a good day for transfers I can feel it!
    8/1/2014 7:36:21 AM
    That's the spirit.
    8/1/2014 7:36:27 AM
    20m a bit much for Moreno F365?
    8/1/2014 7:38:59 AM
    Not if he solves the left-back position for the next five to ten years.
    8/1/2014 7:39:18 AM
    Let's have a quiet moment to reflect on Olof Mellberg's beard after the defender announced his retirement.
    8/1/2014 7:39:47 AM

    What I love most about this is there is a website called 'SportBeardWatch'

    8/1/2014 7:43:47 AM
    Does anyone know why Rodgers refuses to look at Ricardo Rodriguez for the fullback solution? He's the best young full back in europe and had a good world cup.
    8/1/2014 7:43:58 AM
    Here's Jose Mourinho talking up Diego Costa: "Technically he is very, very good. That’s why, lots of the players, they are so happy and so surprised, because his quality is even higher than what they expect."
    8/1/2014 7:44:35 AM
    Bologna are keen to take Liverpool kid Rafael Paez on a season-long loan.
    8/1/2014 7:45:01 AM
    Meanwhile, Chelsea's Nathan Ake is wanted on loan by Derby.
    8/1/2014 7:45:36 AM
    Maybe the Chelsea players are just surprised after seeing his performance in the World Cup
    8/1/2014 7:45:38 AM
    So what's the F365 prediction for where Hernandez could be off to then?
    8/1/2014 7:45:44 AM
    Inter are reportedly still interested. Stanger thinks Liverpool should bid for him.
    8/1/2014 7:46:07 AM
    Stanger also once went into work without trousers though
    8/1/2014 7:48:05 AM
    Hernandez for Vermaelen swop maybe?
    8/1/2014 7:48:14 AM
    Good morning. Is Dier to Spurs done? Any idea if hes any good?
    8/1/2014 7:48:26 AM
    We don't know much about him, but we've heard he's still quite raw.
    8/1/2014 7:48:40 AM
    According to The Times, Newcastle are trying to sign striker Facundo Ferreyra on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.
    8/1/2014 7:49:26 AM
    The Sun claim West Brom are tracking Real Sociedad striker Haris Seferovic.
    8/1/2014 7:53:00 AM
    And in other mid-table news: Aston Villa's Matt Lowton could be off to Middlesbrough on a season-long loan.
    8/1/2014 7:53:33 AM
    Lowton to 'Boro? That's the kind of news we're all here for.
    8/1/2014 7:55:18 AM
    I assume by mid-table news you mean mid-table in the championship?
    8/1/2014 7:55:21 AM
    According to both AS and Marca, Diego Lopez will be leaving Real to make way Keylor Navas.
    8/1/2014 7:55:49 AM
    That's one way to reward one of your most reliable performers.
    8/1/2014 7:56:16 AM
    Surely a Ilori loan to Dortmund wouldn't encourage them to part with one of the most respected defenders in Europe ? I would find that odd. Although, if he's good enough for Dortmund, why wouldn't he be good enough to Liverpool ?
    8/1/2014 7:56:28 AM
    That's what we wondered...
    8/1/2014 7:56:33 AM
    Liverpool buying 3 actual defenders in 2 weeks, I hope all of you at F365 towers were wearing caps when B-Rod just blew your minds.
    8/1/2014 8:01:40 AM
    What is the official F365 view on Schneiderlin? Brilliant or not good enough for the elite? (My club, Spurs, are not part of aforementioned elite)
    8/1/2014 8:01:59 AM
    Decent, but we wouldn't spend >£20m on him.
    8/1/2014 8:02:20 AM
    Please can Liverpool get Shaqiri!
    8/1/2014 8:02:27 AM
    We're not sure they read the blog, fella.
    8/1/2014 8:02:34 AM
    Aston Villa will make a £3m move for Scott Sinclair if they fail to sign Victor Moses on loan.
