Tom Hicks and George Gillett are to sell two of their North American Teams in a deal worth in the region of £750 million. Which will wipe out LFC debt and give the club money to spend in the Transfer market and new stadium according to talkSport this morning. But it may come too late for this transfer window.

So will this mean


Jermaine Pennant (Free)

Footballing 'spats' The former Arsenal and Birmingham winger, currently on loan at Portsmouth, will not have his contract renewed after falling out with Benitez, with the manager concerned by his attitude in training.

Andriy Voronin (£2-3 million)
A flop in the Premier League, the Ukrainian has been in sparkling form since joining Hertha Berlin on loan. The Bundesliga remains his most likely destination, and Hertha his preferred move, should the Germans be able to find the cash.

Andrea Dossena (£4 million)

After early struggles at Anfield, Dossena’s two goals in two games suggest he is starting to find his feet, albeit as a left-winger and not a left-back. Benitez may be tempted to cash in, though, if a suitable offer from Italy arrives, with Juventus and Roma interested.

Philipp Degen (£1 million)

The Swiss full-back has featured just twice since his move from Borussia Dortmund after a succession of injuries. Benitez will surely move him on if he can find a buyer willing to take the risk.

Sami Hyypia (Free)

Benitez would be loathe to lose the former club captain, who proved at Old Trafford that he is more than capable of filling the breach when required. But the Finn, whose contract expires at the end of the season, may decide he wants one more year of playing regularly before hanging up his boots.


Glen Johnson (Portsmouth, £18 million)

Liverpool’s most obvious weakness is at right back, where there is no natural cover for Alvaro Arbeloa. Johnson, an England international, would provide a more attacking alternative and is likely to be available as Portsmouth look to ease their financial concerns.

David Wheater (Middlesbrough, £5 million)

Should the ever-reliable Sami Hyypia leave, Benitez is likely to look at the Middlesbrough man as a young, English replacement. The Spaniard knows he has to boost his English contingent to meet UEFA regulations and, should Boro be relegated, Wheater would be an economic option.

Aaron Lennon (Tottenham, £10 million)
Benitez tried to include the wide man as part of the Robbie Keane deal but Harry Redknapp was unwilling to budge. There are suggestions that Liverpool may go back in the summer as Benitez tries to add natural width to a team which struggles to break down compact opponents.

Michael Mancienne (Chelsea, £4 million)

The England under-21 international has struggled to break in to Chelsea’s side and Benitez, on the lookout for English players, would be tempted to bring in a defender equally comfortable at centre back or full back.

David Villa & David Silva (Valencia, £60 million)
With the money from Hick/Gillett sales

11.20 Florent Malouda has signed a two-year contract extension at Chelsea. Apparently the forward, who finished last season strongly, broke the News while on holiday in his homeland.

10.44 AC Milan have turned down a 'monumental' offer for Alexandre Pato. Chelsea have been strongly linked with an interest in both the young Brazilian forward and Italy's World Cup-winning playmaker Andre Pirlo.

10.15 AC Milan have reiterated that no offer has been made by Chelsea or any other club for Italy international Andrea Pirlo.

gossip from the national newspapers. Please note that these are the views published in the print media.

Another Liverpool midfielder making the News is Xabi Alonso, with Real Madrid reportedly having bid £30million. Should Liverpool cash in on the Spanish schemer?

Chelsea keen on Maicon - The Sun
Chelsea have trained their sights on Inter Milan full-back Maicon having missed out on Glen Johnson. The question is, why are Chelsea desperate for a right-back when they've got Jose Bosingwa?

Van Persie commits to Arsenal - Daily Mirror
Robin van Persie has accepted a new contract at Arsenal that binds him to Emirates Stadium until 2013, on a deal that will see him rake in £70,000-per week. How important is the Dutchman to the Gunners?

Fergie keen on Nilmar - Daily Mirror
Sir Alex Ferguson is keen on Brazil star Nilmar. Would the Internacional man make the grade at Old Trafford?

United set for Brazil raid - The Times
It seems Fergie has got Brazilians on the brain as he's also closing in on Douglas Costa. Should United be trying to sign more established stars?

Taylor could quit Newcastle - Various
Steven Taylor could quit Newcastle unless Alan Shearer is installed as manager at St James' Park. How important is it that he stays at the Championship club?

To think my biggest decision is whether to have chicken or beef for dinner.

12.09 Derby are 'close' to completing the signings of Dean Moxey and Lee Croft - with boss Nigel Clough expecting the deals to be finalised before the end of the month.
