Latest Transfer Talk

With no Euro games going on until Wednesday, lets check up on the latest transfer talk around Europe.

Nasri to Arsenal

Young French international Samir Nasri has confirmed on his website that he will be going to Arsenal.

His websites lists a signing figure of 15.8 million euro.

The exact quote from his website is, "We inform you with the news that Samir Nasri will not be an Olympique de Marseille player next season. We also tell you that he has signed a 4 year contract with the London club Arsenal."

What do you guys think of the signing?

Adebayor and/or Arshavin to Barcelona?

A weird triangle of sorts is starting up between Barcelona and Arsenal involving Adebayor and Andrei Arshavin.

Barcelona has been talking of signing Adebayor for a few weeks now, but Arsenal seems to be unwilling to sell unless they can get enough money to sign a suitable replacement.

Recently, that replacement is rumored to be Russia's Euro 08 star Andrei Arshavin.

Arsenal would like for Barcelona to make an offer for Adebayor worth enough money to help them get Arshavin and have money left over.

However, recent news from Arshavin himself say that he would love to go to La Liga more then any other league in Europe. This news might tempt Barcelona to make an offer themselves for Arshavin.

If Arshavin does go to Barcelona, it might leave Adebayor at Arsenal next season, or AC Milan might come back into the picture and sign him for a huge offer.

Juventus to Bid on Quaresma

Inter and Chelsea have been linked with FC Porto's Quaresma this summer, but Juventus is set to make an offer of their own.

Supposedly Juventus is ready to offer Tiago and a large lump sum of money to lure Porto into selling.

Milan to sign Schweinsteiger?

L'Equipe is reporting that Milan are hoping to sign Bayern Munich's, Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Schweinsteiger has a minimum fee release clause that Milan are ready to meet.

Most likely it will take much more money then the minimum fee release to get Schweinsteiger, due to his strong showing at the Euro's. 

Schweinsteiger would be a great asset to Milan next to Kaka and Pirlo in the attacking midfield.

Ricardo Quaresma- every summer same rumors and he ends up at FC Porto. Let's see if he really moves this time and if Chelsea, Inter, or Juve are willing to pay the price. I heard that when Mourinho was at Chelsea Quaresma's price was too high. I rather see Quaresma in the Serie A than in the Premiership.

I wonder how he'll perform in a big club like Inter or Chelsea where the other teammates are 'better' than him- having won more prestigious titles than him. At FC Porto he's practically the media star.
