January Transfers: Drogba reject Chelsea, Norwich interested in Hooper, Coutinho to Liverpool

January 28, 2013

Philippe Coutinho



Didier Drodga is said to have rejected a deal with Chelsea, but may sign for the Turkish giants- Galatasaray.

Gary Hooper, who has been a huge success in Celtic, has been targeted by a number of EPL clubs for his goal scoring ability. Norwich City is expected to have made a bid of around 4.5 million where Celtic actually wants a figure of around 8 million. Norwich is expected to make an improve bid before the window shuts down.

Tom Ince, who has been wanted by Liverpoool ever since the January Transfer window opened, will face competition from Reading, who is also linked with the player for an 8 million move. But, on the positive side, Philippe Countinho is expected to be at the Merseyside as the player reportedly has agreed a deal with Liverpool for an estimated fee of around 8 million from Inter Milan.

David De Gea’s failure to establish himself as Manchester United’s top goalie may benefit Asmir Begovic, who seems to be on his way to United from Stoke City. But, the deal is only expected to take place after the season ends. The goalie is expected to cost around 14 million. But, Manchester is not the only club interested in the goalie, with clubs such as Arsenal, Liverpool are keen on the goalie. David De Gea may go back to his home country, Spain and play in the La Liga, where top teams are interested in his signature.

Christian Benteke has had an impressive start in the EPL with 11 goals during the season for Aston Villa. Benteke with his prowess has attracted interest from several top clubs of the EPL such as Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham. If Aston Villa decides to sell the player, it might be smart business for the club as well.

Newcastle United has been one of the busiest teams in the January Transfer window, as they have made a number of signings. Still, they are on the lookout for quality players who could help them fight relegation, as they are lying in the bottom half of the table. Presently, they have set their sight on the Ivory Coast striker, Wilfried Bony for 12 million.

QPR has been struggling in EPL’s relegation zone; hence they have been trying to get in some players who could help them climb up the standings table. West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie has been one of their prime targets, who has been warming the West Brom’s bench.
