Here's a look at the final rumour mill of the week ahead of the Europe's 9th weekend: 1. West Brom are reported to be interested in AFC Bournemouth winger Matt Ritiche, worth approx £2 million.

Ajern Robben has said he has absolutely no interest what-so-ever in returning to club football in England.

West Ham striker Andy Carroll could be fit in two weeks after the ankle injury he suffered in July. (Source: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/west-hams-andy-carroll-could-4494267) 4. Arsenal's Per Mertesacker has blamed player attitudes as the reason for Arsenal's slow start.

I haven't seen Ritchie much to be honest but a winger would certainly help West Brom's fight against relegation. 2. It's a shame Robben's not going to return to the Premier League but at Bayern, why would he? He's won the Champions League and has plenty of spectators to watch him roll around a bit. 3. Not much of a need or help to West Ham. He'll play a few from the bench to help up his value. Expect Carroll offloaded in the winter transfer window. 4. I think there's more to it than just attitude but Mertesacker has a point. Arsenal lack the unger they had last year.
