Transfer Insider: Liverpool step up keeper search, Toon target French ace and one in, one out at Arsenal?

first_img Yaya Sanogo There are now just three weeks remaining in the January transfer window, and the speculation is ever increasing. Reports, rumour and counter-rumour, the grapevine is buzzing with the latest transfer talk. And here, Jamie Sanderson offers his expert view on the deals that might be done…Yaya Sanogo – Arsenal to Crystal PalaceThere has been plenty of interest in the France Under-21 international forward, with offers from both his home country and Germany, but it looks likely he will be staying in England. It appeared as though Hull was his most likely destination, but it now seems new Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew will win the race to take him on loan. He’s keen to get the deal done, and Sanogo is happy with the switch. (Chances of it happening: 9/10)M’baye Niang – AC Milan to NewcastleNewcastle are desperate to land Niang, who has struggled to make an impact at Milan this season. The 20-year-old has played just a handful of games this term for the San Siro giants but, despite his lack of game time, the Serie A outfit rejected a loan bid from the Toon last week. The Magpies are prepared to offer Davide Santon in a swap to get this one over the line and, providing the Italian is happy with the proposal, that could be enough to get this deal done. (7/10)Norberto Neto – Fiorentina to LiverpoolWith continuing question marks over Simon Mignolet’s long-term future at Anfield, Brendan Rodgers is keen to add more competition for the goalkeeper’s jersey. The Reds want Neto, who has represented Brazil at Under-23 level, but they are not keen on paying out a large fee at this stage because he will be available on a free transfer in the summer. This one is dragging on, and could well continue to do so. (5/10)Jonathan Calleri – Boca Juniors to ArsenalThe 21-year-old Argentine striker has been watched by Arsenal scouts all season and a £7million deal has been mooted, despite his relative lack of experience. But his record of six goals in just 15 appearances for Boca Juniors suggests he could be a canny investment for Arsene Wenger, who has proved in the past he has an eye for untried young strikers (remember Nicolas Anelka?). If this moves happens, however, it’s more likely be in the summer than in this month’s window. (3/10)Lionel Messi – Barcelona to ChelseaThe media was in a frenzy last week after Messi followed a couple of Stamford Bridge stars on Instagram, leading to speculation he could be ready to quit the Nou Camp following reports of disagreements with manager Luis Enrique. In truth, however, the Blues have not given any serious thought to a deal, while the Argentine superstar took the opportunity this weekend to reiterate his commitment to the Catalan cause.
