Will he stay or will he go?
Wait, wait. First, let's decide who we are talking about.
England international striker Andy Carroll is still a Liverpool player. That could change by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, Italian international midfielder Daniele De Rossi remains with AS Roma. But will he be lured by Manchester City's riches?
Those stories are inside Tuesday's edition of the B/R Transfer Tracker, along with updates on Emmanuel Adebayor, Edin Dzeko, Yann M'Vila, David Silva and Gaston Ramirez.
Read on for all the details.

Ade or Edin? Adebayor or Dzeko? Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with two strikers, both of whom are currently on the books at Manchester City.
According to The Sun, Togo international striker Emmanuel Adebayor is nearing a £5 million permanent transfer from City to Spurs after agreeing to take a pay cut. Adebayor, 28, spent last season on loan with Tottenham.
He cost City £25 million from Arsenal in 2009.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror reports that Spurs have turned their attention to Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko instead of Adebayor.
Dzeko, 26, joined City from VfL Wolfsburg in 2011 but has struggled for playing time in City's crowded strikeforce.
M'Vila to Arsenal Back On?

French midfielder Yann M'Vila, a long-time Arsenal transfer "target," is being linked with the Gunners once again.
ESPN FC reports that Rennes general manager Pierre Dreossi suggested M'Vila could move to Arsenal before the end of the current transfer deadline.
The Gunners recently sold midfielder Alex Song to Barcelona, and M'Vila could be his replacement. M'Vila, 22, is valued around €20 million, with Tottenham Hotspur also thought to be interested.
