Transfer rumours round-up
Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld is Manchester United’s number one priority this January, as Jose Mourinho looks to add to his defensive options. The Belgian’s contract runs out at the end of the season.
Barcelona have now reportedly entered the ‘race’ to sign Richarlison and are monitoring the Brazilian. The 21-year-old has made a good impression since joining Everton from Watford in the summer.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could bring ex-Red Suso back to Merseyside and is reportedly preparing a £40m bid. The Spanish midfielder left Anfield back in 2015 for around £1m.
Arsenal want to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona. The Frenchman has struggled slightly since joining the Catalan giants but his fellow teammate Lionel Messi declared the team “need” the forward. Liverpool have also been linked with the 21-year-old.
Cardiff City are reportedly considering a January transfer move for Oumar Niasse. Neil Warnock wants to add some attack minded players to his squad during the winter transfer window and he’s identified the Senegalese as a potential option.
Marseille are considering a move for Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno. The Spanish defender is out of favour at Liverpool, making only a handful of appearances so far this season. It’s thought the 26-year-old would be open to a move elsewhere during January.
Chelsea will look to sell Victor Moses next month, with Crystal Palace and Fulham both interested in the Nigerian. Maurizio Sarri sees the 27-year-old as surplus to requirements. He could cost around £12m.
West Ham defender Reece Oxford has been scouted by Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim during a recent Under-23 match. The Englishman could leave the Hammers to get more game time.
Premier League champions Manchester City are willing to pay £50 million to secure the services of Roma winger Cengiz Under. The Turkish international, who has impressed in Italy over the past 18 months, is also being monitored by rivals Arsenal. Under has also admitted in recent months that he would be open to a move to England in the future.
Arsenal are considering selling German playmaker Mesut Ozil in January for £25 million. The 30-year-old, who made the move to the Emirates Stadium in 2013 from Real Madrid for a fee worth £42.5 million, has struggled under new boss Unai Emery this season and could well be allowed to leave in the new year.
Barcelona will make Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane their top transfer target in the summer. Spurs however, currently hold a £200 million valuation on the World Cup Golden Boot winner who signed a new contract in the summer, which expires in 2024.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain have joined the race to sign Chelsea star Eden Hazard next summer. The 27-year-old, who is out of contract in 2020, is also being monitored by Real Madrid and Juventus, who are all preparing a summer bid for the playmaker.
Manchester United will have to pay Napoli £90 million if they want to secure the services of centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly in January. Koulibaly is thought to be Jose Mourinho’s top target in the new year, with the Senegalese international consistently performing in Italy’s top division over the past five years.
Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is considering his future at Old Trafford. The Belgian is reportedly becoming increasingly frustrated with Jose Mourinho and may decide to push for a move away from the club, should the Portuguese manager stick around.
Liverpool are eyeing a move for Alex Teixeira. The Reds tried to sign the Brazilian in 2016 from Shakhtar Donetsk. The attacking midfielder has since moved to China to ply his trade. Jurgen Klopp is still keen on the player, however, and may try once again to secure his signature.
Real Madrid will ask Chelsea for at least €30m if they want to sign Mateo Kovacic on a permanent deal. The Croatian is on loan at Stamford Bridge until the end of the season but Maurizio Sarri has used the midfielder often during his time in charge at the club.
West Ham United defender Angelo Ogbonna is wanted by Valencia. The La Liga side have shortlisted the Italian for a January move. The 30-year-old has found himself on the fringes under Manuel Pellegrini and may want more regular game time.
Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi
AC Milan are tracking Liverpool duo Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi ahead of the January transfer window opening. The Italians are keen to bolster their squad and are looking across Europe for options. It’s unlikely Liverpool would let either or both leave, however.
Wolves look set to break their transfer record by making the loan deal of Raul Jimenez a permanent one. The Midlands club will have to pay Benfica in the region of £34m. The Mexican striker has adapted well to life in the Premier League.
West Ham will sign Samir Nasri in January on a short-term deal, following the conclusion of his drugs ban. The Frenchman has been training at the club recently in order to impress and to try and earn a contract offer. Manuel Pellegrini is, of course, familiar with the 31-year-old after they worked together at Manchester City.
Liverpool have the option to recall Harry Wilson from his loan spell at Derby County in January. The Welshman has made quite an impression in the Championship under Frank Lampard. It’s thought, however, Jurgen Klopp is happy to let him continue to develop at Pride Park.

Frenkie de Jong
Ajax and Netherlands star Frenkie de Jong has refused to rule out a move away from the Dutch capital. Manchester City are reportedly very keen on the 21-year-old, with Pep Guardiola still looking to add to his midfield options.
Cenk Tosun has been linked with a return to Beskitas less than one year after joining the Toffees. The Turkish striker has struggled to settle at Everton and has not shown the goalscoring form that got him his Merseyside move last January.

Lyon owner Jean-Michel Aulas reportedly wants to sort the future of Nabil Fekir out before Christmas. The French playmaker nearly joined Liverpool over the summer, only for the deal to fall through. Jurgen Klopp is still thought to be keen, however, as are Chelsea.
Tottenham have joined the race to sign defender Benjamin Pavard, alongside Bayern Munich and Napoli. The Frenchman played at right-back for France in the summer, helping his side win the World Cup, but he can also play at centre-back. The 22-year-old had offers to leave his current club Stuttgart last summer, but he decided to stay with the Bundesliga outfit for another year.
Marko Arnautovic reportedly wants to leave West Ham in the January transfer window, with Roma earmarked as a potential destination for the forward. The Austrian international has not been at his happiest during his time with the Hammers, hinting a number of times about leaving the club.
If Roma decides to pursue a deal for Marko Arnautovic, they may well include Edin Dzeko as part of it, with the striker heading in the opposite direction. Dzeko has, of course, played in the Premier League previously under Manuel Pellegrini, and it’s thought he may be keen to do so once more.
