Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Joe Allen among Liverpool's unwanted XI

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol reacts to Balotelli's agent saying that his client is not leaving Liverpool.

Is this the summer Liverpool finally get it right in the transfer market? Have lessons been learned? Signing seven players by the July 1 opening of the window suggests that the club's much-criticised and mysterious transfer committee has chosen to get its business done early rather than later when prices begin to inflate. The new faces so far: attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino, strikers Danny Ings and Divock Origi, midfielder James Milner, right-back Nathaniel Clyne, goalkeeper Adam Bogdan and...

Can Radamel Falcao be the player he once was at Jose Mourinho's Chelsea?

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth wonders if Louis van Gaal or Jose Mourinho will appear smarter at the end of the season in regards to the Radamel Falcao transfer saga.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley addresses Radamel Falcao's reported loan move to Chelsea, where he now joins former teammate in Diego Costa.

There was a lurch into the third person as Radamel Falcao defended his Manchester United performances.

"Falcao was always there," he said, speaking in Chile ahead of Colombia's Copa America campaign. "It depends what criteria you are using. People said I was not on the field and not scoring goals but I was always there."

Arsenal defensive midfield needs to be more than just Coquelin

Petr Cech has said he still has the desire to play regular first-team football, and believes he can receive that at Arsenal.

Having been sent on loan to Charlton in November 2014, Francis Coquelin must have thought his chances of making at Arsenal were almost non-existent.

He was dropping down a division, he seemed to have an endless succession of midfielders ahead of him in North London, and the manager's faith in him was such that he'd been shipped out for the duration of the previous season to Freiburg.

When the call came for him to come back, just before a big game for his temporary club, Coquelin was annoyed because...

Stoke City move closer to deal for Real Madrid midfielder Sergio Molina

Molina caught the eye in last season's UEFA Youth League.

Stoke City expect to seal the signing of Real Madrid teenager Sergio Molina this week, sources have told ESPN FC.

As ESPN FC revealed last week, Molina arrived in England for talks and to undergo a medical at the Britannia Stadium.

The defensive midfielder featured for Real's under-19 side last season and caught the eye in the UEFA Youth League, scoring two goals in six appearances.

The 19-year-old has been...
