More Euro Rumors

For this one, I have some random Euro rumors :

The talk about Lampard leaving Chelsea has ended, at least for the time being.

Alan Smith has been linked with a number of moves. The rumor is that SAF has decided he's no longer Manchester United material. Boro makes sense in that they're still looking for a replacement for Mark Viduka. Boro signed Tuncay Sanli on a free but he's a winger / forward.

Liverpool is balking £27 million price Atletico Madrid have placed on Fernando Torres. Despite massive spending so far, Manchester United is supposedly still sniffing around for others including Torres.

Charlton want £15 million for Marcus Bent.

Now that Henry's been sold to Barcelona, Arsenal seems to be linked with every half-way decent striker under the age of 30. Some of those include Carlos Tevez, Nicola Anelka (yep, Le Sulker), Samuel Et'o, and Diego Milito. This one seems most interesting to me. The question is if the Argitine Militio would want to leave Zaragoza and his brother Gabi who plays there (one of the best CB's in La Liga, btw).

Barcelona are said to be in talks with the brother of Arsenal's Kolo Toure, Yaya Toure.

Yaya Toure is signed by Barca.

Thank for the follow up. It's good to see. I hope it goes well for him. I still think some folks don't realize how important is brother Kolo is to Arsenal (maybe the same crowd that thinks the sky falls without Henry at Highbury?).
