We should be so Luque

At last, some news on the transfer front that we can genuinely get excited about: with deals for Owen, Anelka and Boa Morte seemingly dead in the water, we're hot on the trail of Spanish international Alberto Luque.

Luque, who currently plays for our Intertoto Cup foes Deportivo La Coruna, can operate up front or wide on the left. He's got great pace and a good eye for goal - and you don't get in the Spanish national side without having some serious quality about you.

I don't want to speak too soon, but the signs look encouraging - Deportivo haven't ruled out selling any of their players before the end of the month, and Luque has expressed an interest in playing in the Premiership in the past. If - and it's still a big if - Shepherd and Souness can pull this one off then for once I'll be happy to take my hat off to them.
