Spurs target £8m Hull centre-back, Fiorentina approach Emmanuel Eboue
The latest transfer gossip, rumours and damned lies
Michael Turner to Tottenham
As Ledley King, Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson struggle to find full fitness, The Mirror suggest ‘Arry will bring in the Hull centre-back. Apparently, Pascal Chimbonda plus cash would equate to a deal worth around £8m.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: In light of the injury list, Tottenham do need to look beyond Corluka for centre-back cover, and sources suggest Turner could be, er, turned for the right price. The thought of wearing that ugly 80s throwback Hull shirt for an entire season must be playing on his mind too.
Emmanuel Eboue to Fiorentina
Another rumour from the prolific Daily Mirror, who are suggesting the Ivorian will be the latest star to leave the Emirates. Wenger has reportedly given Eboue permission to speak to the Serie A side, who would be expected to pay around £9m.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Statistically, he is an extremely effective player, however most Arsenal fans wouldn’t miss him based on last season’s performance.
Elano to AC Milan or Inter Milan
The Sun believe the Milanese rivals are battling it out for the man who has failed to make his mark on the City Revolution. He would cost around £8m.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: Elano is clearly poised for an exit, but we fancy Inter over AC, simply because of the burden he would face filling Kaka’s boots at the Rossoneri.
