Last updated : 30 January 2007 By Footy Mad - Editor
Ajax striker Ryan Babel seems to be another of Glenn Roeder's targets that looks certain to land on stoney ground. Because chairman Freddy Shepherd wants the player on loan before he hands over any money.

Arsenal have been robbed of the services of Robin van Persie and Julio Baptista through injury and Arsene Wenger is said to be ready to offer £5m for the 20-year old striker.

Babel has made it clear he wants to join the Dutch elite who are treadng the boards in the Premiership, with Arsenal - and London - his prefered choice.
