Middlesbrough, Striker, Age 30, Australian
11/06/06: Mark Viduka is linked with the Reds for a fee of around Â£1.5m.
Verdict: Highly unlikely.
Fulham, Midfielder, Age 26, French
11/06/06: Reports on Sunday claim Fulham have put a Â£5m price tag on Malbranque’s head, with Newcastle and Liverpool leading the way to sign him.
Blackburn, Striker, Age 26, Welsh
10/06/06: Reports on Saturday indicate Rafa may trigger the Â£6m buy-out clause in striker Bellamy’s contract. With Cisse out and Defoe, Kuyt, and Bent looking to be overpriced, Welshman Bellamy seems a suitable option.
Verdict: Striker needed, Bellamy may be the man.
Real Zaragoza, Midfielder, Age 20, Spanish
9/06/06: Touted as a possible replacement for Didi Hamann who may be off to Bolton, Zapater is a young midfielder at Zaragoza who is entering the last year of his contract there. Reports say the price on his head is Â£4m but may be available for much less than that.
Verdict: Good chance.
Mauro German Camoranesi
Juventus, Midfielder, Age 30, Italian
9/06/06: Media reports with Juventus’ possible relegation Camoranesi and other top stars would be available cut-price, and with Liverpool needing a right winger 2 plus 2 can equal five?
Verdict: Could be available, if so possible.
Sevilla, Right back / midfield, Age 22, Brazilian
11/06/06: Alves has been frequently linked for a couple of weeks and is said to be high on Rafa’s wanted list, just the fee Seville are asking seems a problem. Cisse’s injury could affect this one.
Verdict: Definitely wanted, it’s all about the money though.
