We have scoured the national press to bring you the latest transfer gossip and news from the top-flight of English football.
Mohamed Salah ‘could contemplate Liverpool future’
This is very interesting news from the Middle East….
Liverpool are said to be tracking Israeli star Moanes Dabour – but that could create problems for one of their current superstars.
The Reds are said to be keen on Red Bull Salzburg striker Dabour as they search for a back up to Roberto Firmino.
Chief Scout Barry Hunter is even said to have been over to Austria to scout the player, who has netted 33 times in 65 games for the Salzburg.
The 26-year-old has netted three times in 12 appearances for his national team since making his international debut in 2014.
However now the Jerusalem Post are one of a number of outlets to claim that Egyptian superstar Salah would quit Liverpool if the move for Dabour happened.
United still keen on Milenkovic
Pulisic odds slashed
The Reds have been linked with the American international for months, while Chelsea are also reportedly interested.
Odds on Pulisic making a move to Anfield by the end of the January transfer window have been slashed to just 7/2 in from 14/1 with Paddy Power.
Liverpool eye Hazard
Liverpool are looking into a deal for Eden Hazard’s younger brother Thorgan.
His contract is up in 18 months time, and it’s claimed he’s got no intention of signing an extension.
Italian outlet CalcioMercato claim Roma are working on a deal for the 25-year-old.
Roma are said to want to tie up a deal for the attacking midfielder in January and then loan him back to the German club until the summer.
However the interest of Liverpool and Atletico Madrid could cloud the situation, both of whom are said to be planning a similar buy-and-loan-back strategy.
Juventus make position on Douglas Costa clear
Want an update on Douglas Costa?
Of course you do…
Sources in Italy claim a bid has been lodged for the talented Brazilian right winger – with new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to strengthen his squad.
The Norwegian interim boss was even said to have been consulted before Ed Woodward, a long time admirer of the winger, put in the bid.
But now Juventus have spelt out exactly where they stand with the 28-year-old.
Club sources have told Calciomercato that he CAN move to the Premier League – but not now.
Cardiff keen to snap up midfielder
Victor Camarasa is being chased by a number of Premier League clubs.
The on-loan Cardiff midfielder’s form has been so good, Marca report the Bluebirds are keen to sign the Spaniard on a permanent deal “as soon as possible” to ward off rivals.
Camarasa has been a huge hit since signing on loan from Real Betis in the summer, starting 17 Premier League matches.
There is no option for Cardiff to automatically make his stay permanent after the season-long loan deal, so Neil Warnock is prepared to pay Betis £13.5m to snap him up permanently.
‘Man Utd close in on sensational move for Kalidou Koulibaly’
Koulibaly was always said to be Jose Mourinho’s his No.1 target for United but the Serie A side were looking for around £90m for the defender.
But now that interest seems to have carried over to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and more importantly the man holds the purse strings, Ed Woodward.
At 27 and with great pedigree in European football, Koulibaly should be just the man United need to shore up their backline.
And the bookies agree.
They say Koulibaly looks set for a shock move to Man United when the transfer window opens
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Solskjaer may well be trusted with a hefty transfer budget next month and the odds suggest Koulibaly’s the first player who’ll move to Manchester.”
Kovacic drops hint of permanent Chelsea stay
Mateo Kovacic has suggested he could make his move to Chelsea permanent.
The Croatian joined the Stamford Bridge club from Real Madrid on a season-long loan at the start of the campaign.
The midfielder is enjoying life in the Premier League and suggested he’d be happy to stay on in south-west London should Real Madrid agree to a deal.
Arsenal want Real Madrid man
Reports in Spain from news outlet Fichajes say the Gunners want long-term competition for Bernd Leno.
Petr Cech is reaching the twilight of his career, and Navas is keen to leave the Spanish capital after struggling for game time.
Fekir to Arsenal?
Nabil Fekir has seemingly dropped a hint his future may lie in north London with Arsenal, according to one journalist.
French based football journalist Matt Spiro has implied a surprise move to the Gunners should not be ruled out because of his relationship with Alexandre Lacazette.
“Chelsea still interested. When I spoke to Fekir earlier this month, he told me the guy he’s most enjoyed playing with in his career is Alexandre Lacazette.
“Just putting that out there…”
“Get it done, Agent Laca!”, tweeted one fan.
“Up to you, Agent @LacazetteAlex”, added another.
A third said: “Agent laca @LacazetteAlex come on”.
Howe: Wilson not for sale
Eddie Howe insists Callum Wilson is not for sale.
The Bournemouth striker has been linked with a move to Chelsea, but Howe played down the speculation after the Cherries’ EFL Cup defeat at Stamford Bridge last night.
“Not from my perspective, no,” he said.
“Callum is our player, he is very focused on us and you could see that from his performance. He gave everything for the team.”
