Right, it is approaching that time of the season! Get the rumours posted! Try to post possible, likely or plausible ones. You can also comment on who you think your team needs. Here are the first few -

Barcelona defender Dani Alves will be offered to Manchester United this summer | Give Me Football

Arsenal transfer news: Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen is also wanted by Tottenham and Barcelona | Give Me Football

Liverpool transfer news: AZ Alkmaar midfielder Rasmus Elm is a summer target for Kenny Dalglish | Give Me Football

And Celtic are not my team but if they want to compete in the Champions League, which they are not far off from being able to do as this is the best quality Scottish side I have seen in years, they need to sign a quality centre back and central midfielder. Maybe the likes of Abou Diaby, Niko Kranjcar, Charlie Adam, Kevin Nolan, Joey Barton, Tim Cahill or Lucas Leiva for central midfield and Richard Dunne, Matthew Upson, James Collins, Sylvain Distin or Christopher Samba for centre back. These are quality players that could be tempted by Celtic (not all would be) The lure of being at a big club, trophies and Champions League football could be appealing though, and wouldn't cost the earth to buy!

Clint Dempsey is tossed about frequently in transfer talk and he's made it clear his goal is to play in Champions League. Arsenal is a rumored move. He's the guy I'll be tracking once the window opens.

Chelsea supposedly put in a bid for Mario Gomez, but he elected to stay with Bayern.

Celtic could sign Dunne if or when Villa go down. He is Irish and would play for Celtic and be in the CL. They can have Adam if they want. No chance of getting Lucas because he is Liverpool through and through. Future captain if you ask me.

Liverpool players that we need to make a bid for.
Hazard, Erikson, Cavani, Lucas, M. Suarez, Falcao and Hoillet.
Players out would be.
Downing, Adam, Cole, Carroll(for good price), Aurellio, Maxi, Flanagan(on loan), Doni and Brad Jones.

I like Downing and Adam. Maxi seems to do good when he starts, not the best player in the world but has done good when called upon.

I'm sure this will happen. In fact, I'll put money on it. If he's to leave Fulham, it has to be this summer, or they'll have to let him go on a free next year when his contract expires. He'll give Arsenal so many more options.
