Why Joe Allen to Stoke Makes Sense for Everyone

Liverpool are understood to have accepted a bid of around £13m from Stoke for Wales midfielder Joe Allen. The Press Association reported the Reds have accepted the offer as Allen only has one year left on his contract.

The Lowdown on Chelsea and Arsenal Target Gabigol

Chelsea, Arsenal and Juventus are all rumoured to be interested in signing Santos' sensation Gabriel Barbosa.

Liverpool need to address full-back issues

Liverpool have somehow managed to time and again overlook their weaknesses in the transfer windows. The issue of a proper defensive midfielder missing from the club is testament to this problem persisting at the club. By the looks of it, Liverpool are set on following the same trend and seemingly, no new full-back additions have been made.

It was a goal he would have dreamt of scoring, at the grandest of stages, for his nation for whom he was on the fringes for so long. Payet almost didn't make it for …
Why Conte is so keen on Radja Nainggolan for Chelsea's rebuild

Why Conte is so keen on Radja Nainggolan for Chelsea's rebuild

It's a well documented fact that Chelsea severely under-performed last season. While Guus Hiddink was able to somewhat steady the ship, the Blues still finished in 10th spot. Antonio Conte will want to implement his own style and will be bringing in players who would help him do the same in his bid to make Chelsea a force again, quickly. Fans who have watched him play have been calling for Radja Nainggolan to be targeted by big Premier League clubs in …
