Chelsea are planning a £100 million spending spree, Spurs want Joe Cole

The latest transfer gossip, rumours and damned lies

Franck Ribery

Andrea Pirlo, Franck Ribery and Sergio Aguero to Chelsea
Chelsea have been searching all summer for what they call a “marquee name” and now The Daily Mail expect them to bring three in at once by spending £100 million on Pirlo, Ribery and Aguero.

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: The Blues have been linked with Pirlo ever since Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment and that looks a reasonable possibility but Bayern Munich have said Ribery is no longer available and Aguero is supposedly happy to stay in Spain.

Joe Cole to Spurs
Obviously the arrival of two more midfielders would damage Cole’s chances of getting into Chelsea’s first team when he returns from injury. The Guardian are expecting Spurs to come in for him.

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: It’s no secret that Harry Redknapp rates Joe Cole very highly but the winger is one of the Blues’ most popular players so they might not be willing to sell.

Marouane Chamakh to Arsenal
Sky Sports are reporting that the Bordeaux striker is in London to hold talks with Arsenal. The French club are reluctant to sell to Sunderland as they consider them a smaller club.

The Spoiler truth-o-meter: There probably won’t be too much trouble getting Chamakh to agree to a move but Arsenal will need to up their current offer of £5 million in order for a deal to be completed.

    Why would they not want to sell Chamakh to a small club. Surely selling him to a rival would be a worse idea!!

    I think Joe Cole to Spurs would be a good move for him. He’d get to play plenty of games and be in great form for South Africa 2010.
