    NEW TIER

    Arsenal star Kieran Tierney is a shock transfer target for Napoli after the Italians missed out on him last season, according to reports.

    The Gunners went head to head with the Serie A outfit in the summer of 2019.

    But it was Unai Emery who came out on top by landing the Scotland international from Celtic for £25million.

    Now, though, The Telegraph report Napoli are plotting to go back in for Tierney.

    It is thought they have made the 23-year-old their long-term target as the solution at left-back.

    A January switch is unlikely, meaning Napoli hope to secure a short-term fix before a summer swoop.

    Taking Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri on a six-month loan until the end of the season could be one option the Naples side consider.

    GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS 

    Dayot Upamecano is being linked with FOUR Premier League giants, while PSG have joined the pursuit of Paul Pogba.

    That's the pick of the transfer talk, with Harry Winks and Manchester United target Moussa Dembele also under the spotlight.

    RB Leipzig’s France defender Upamecano, 22, is said to be interesting Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea, plus Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

    And United midfielder Pogba, 27, for so long tipped to join Juventus, is now regarded as on new PSG chief Mauricio Pochettino's wishlist for next summer.

    Elsewhere, Atletico Madrid are on the brink of borrowing Lyon frontman Dembele.

    The France Under-21 striker, reportedly eyed by United and West Ham, is tipped to replace newly-freed Diego Costa for the LaLiga leaders.

    It's claimed Tottenham have rejected an audacious Valencia bid to borrow England link-player Winks.

    And it's also been suggested Inter Milan are preparing a shock move for United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

    WE'LL BAGG MORE PLAYERS

    West Brom gaffer Sam Allardyce has stated the club will be active in the January window following the signings of Robert Snodgrass and Andy Londergan.

    He said: “I’m hoping to be extremely busy in the window as I have been extremely busy in every window.

    “It’s part of the process to work tirelessly on outs and ins until the end of January.

    “Everybody knows what we need to do. We need to move players in this window. We need to bring players in.

    “Everybody needs players, but I think more than anybody in the Premier League we need players to give us a chance of moving out of the position we’re in.”

    Atletico Madrid are on the brink of borrowing Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.

    Ex-Chelsea frontrunner Costa’s contract was terminated last month after asking to leave for personal reasons.

    Dembele will join Atletico on loan with a permanent option, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

    The Spanish giants have already agreed personal terms with the 24-year-old.

    Dembele just needs to pass a medical before the switch can be rubber-stamped.

    Atletico were interested in Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik and Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose before turning to the ex-Fulham and Celtic forward.

    The Daily Mail suggest RB Leipzig’s France defender, 22, will be a prime summer target for Blues boss Frank Lampard.

    Arsenal were rated Upamecano’s main suitors at the end of last season.

    But now most of their top Premier League rivals, plus Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, are said to be interested.

    POGBA IN PSG LINK

    PSG have joined Juventus in pursuing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, one report claims.

    The Daily Star suggest Mauricio Pochettino’s new club are ready to pounce next summer, despite Real Madrid tracking the France superstar too.

    Pogba is thought to be even more unsettled at United now as Bruno Fernandes and Fred cement a new central partnership,

    Scott McTomina is also in fine form, while summer arrival Donny van de Beek has been promised he will get more game-time.

    The suggestion is Pochettino fancies fielding Pogba in a new-look midfield next season, possibly alongside Spurs’ Dele Alli.

    WINKS NO-GO

    Tottenham have reportedly rejected Valencia's audacious bid to take Harry Winks on loan.

    The Daily Mail claim Los Che chief Javi Gracia is a huge admirer of the England star from his time in the Premier League.

    The report adds that the former Watford boss – who took charge of Valencia last summer – is desperate to work with Winks.

    And the LaLiga giants are understood to be preparing an improved deal in order to try and secure the 24-year-old this month.

    Valencia boss Gracia is said to want Winks on board as soon as possible with his side only outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

    The Spaniard's have made the defensive midfielder their No1 target in January and his arrival would represent a major coup for the club.

    SunSport revealed last month that the England international could move abroad to keep his Euro 2021 dreams alive.

    Winks has found himself out in the cold at times in Jose Mourinho’s Prem squad this season – threatening his Three Lions place for this summer.

    QUICK FIK EXIT CLOSE

    Frank Lampard admits Fikayo Tomori could leave Chelsea on loan this month.

    The 23-year-old defender is on the fringes of the first-team picture at Stamford Bridge.

    Tomori has made just four appearances this season – the latest being a 10-minute cameo in this afternoon’s FA Cup win over Morecambe.

    A string of Premier League clubs including Leeds and Newcastle are reportedly interested.

    And Tomori could be on the move for the rest of the season after failing to make the starting XI for the Morecambe clash.

    Lampard told football.london: “The situation with Fikayo is open at the moment.

    “There is a possibility he could be going on loan to get games somewhere else. That was part of my thinking of not starting him today.

    “I gave him some minutes at the end but while we were looking at that I wanted to make sure it was the right thing for the club and for him and individually. So that’s why he didn’t start.”

    DO US A FAIVRE

    Manchester United are reportedly set to go toe-to-toe with Paris Saint-Germain in pursuit of Romain Faivre.

    The Brest midfielder, 22, has been one of Ligue 1’s surprise standouts in 2020-21 after a move from Monaco.

    Les Pirates paid around £450,000 for Faivre last summer and a sale would reap a pretty profit for the Brittany club.

    According to Le10Sport, a whole host of clubs are taking an interest in the player.

    United and PSG are named as two contenders, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently adding a new wide-man to his squad in Amad Diallo.

    Mauricio Pochettino got a good look at Faivre on Saturday night as the youngster played 90 minutes in his first win as Les Parisiens boss.

    In 19 appearances for Brest, he has notched four goals and three assists.

    That includes a winner against old club Monaco in October and a late equaliser from the spot away to high-flying Lyon.

    WE CAN’T LOSE OUR POG

    Bruno Fernandes says Manchester United need Paul Pogba if they are to lift silverware this season.

    Pogba’s future was thrown into doubt last month when agent Mino Raiola declared the Frenchman’s second spell at Old Trafford was ‘over’.

    Fernandes said: “It shows you the confidence he gives to you, like when he comes back, he’s trying to help you become better and you help him to become better.

    “We ended the season really well playing together. But of course the beginning of the season was hard for Paul because he had COVID.

    “It was really difficult for Paul to find his form but I think he’s much better and feeling much more confident.

    “The goal against West Ham gave him much more confidence to understand. The team needs him and he has the quality to help us.”

    LIN-TER MILAN?

    Man Utd midfielder Jesse Lingard has been linked with a shock move to Inter Milan.

    According to the Mirror, the Serie A outfit are keen to bring the England international to Italy on loan.

    However Antonio Conte’s side must first offload Christian Eriksen before they can make a move for Lingard.

    Should Lingard join Inter, he would link-up with his former United team-mates Alexis Sanchez, Ashley Young and Romelu Lukaku.

    SPURS COULD PAY MILI MONEY

    Tottenham are reportedly interested in a January deal for Real Madrid defender Eder Militao.

    Jose Mourinho is eager to strengthen his options at the back and has set his sights on the out-of-favour Brazilian from his former club, according to AS.

    Militao has been limited to three appearances in the current campaign.

    He missed the opening weeks of the season through injury before testing positive for coronavirus.

    Real Madrid signed Militao from Porto for around £45million in 2019 but he has failed to establish himself as a regular in Zinedine Zidane's team.

    Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Nacho are ahead of him in the defensive pecking order.

    MATT’S TOO MUCH

    Hertha Berlin have accepted that Matteo Guendouzi will return to Arsenal in the summer, according to reports.

    The Frenchman has impressed in the Bundesliga with the capital club losing just two of their last nine as they push away from the relegation zone.

    Under manager Bruno Labbadia, Guendouzi has even scored twice including the opener in a recent 3-0 demolition of Schalke 04.

    According to German outlet Bild, Hertha are putting together a plan to replace the midfielder in the summer.

    Wolfsburg star Yannick Gerhardt is said to be the name of the top of their shortlist.

    While there is no sense that Arsenal will recall the player this month, Berlin do not have a purchase option to make his loan stay permanent.

    Therefore, the club reportedly see it as a fact that Guendouzi will leave at the end of the season, unless they can find around £29million to secure his signature.

    SORRY OZIL, WE MARINE BUSINESS

    MARINE jokingly claimed they rejected the chance to sign Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil to help beat north London rivals Tottenham.

    The Merseyside club are attempting to achieve the greatest upset in FA Cup history against Jose Mourinho's side at Rossett Park.

    Marine, who feature in the eighth tier of English football, are 161-places below Spurs – the largest gap between two sides in the competition ever.

    Unfortunately, the UK's lockdown will mean Paul Leary's men were without fans against the Premier League giants – but they still began the tie well.

    ICE BERG

    Liverpool defender Sepp van den Berg is set to depart Anfield on loan this month.

    According to Goal, the Dutch centre-back has admirers from clubs in Germany, Switzerland and Belgium.

    FEELING BLUE

    Frank Lampard has admitted Fikayo Tomori could leave the club on loan this month in search of regular game time.

    Speaking following the 4-0 win against Morecambe, he said: "Situation with Fikayo is open about the moment.

    "There is a possibility he could be going on loan to get games somewhere else.

    "So that would have to be the solution for him and the club. That was part of my thinking of not starting him today."

    HAMMER TIME

    With Arsenal's Eddie Nketiah now not a target, West Ham could look to make a move for Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka.

    The Hammers are in the market for a centre-forward following Sebastien Haller's departure Ajax.

    And according to the Mirror, West Hame are eyeing up a potential move for Daka.

    The 22-year-old is believed to be available for around £25million.

    Daka has chipped in with 15 goals and five assists in 17 games in all competitions this season.

    TOR BLIMEY

    Arsenal are reportedly not only thinking about recalling Matteo Guendouzi from loan, but also Lucas Torreira.

    The Uruguay international is out on loan at Atletico Madrid, but has featured in just six LaLiga games.

    And according to Mundo Deportivo, the Gunners are thinking about cutting short his stay.

    But he wouldn't then be involved in the first team squad, he would then be shipped off to Fiorentina who are keen to sign him.

    PED POWER CAN KEEP MESSI

    Lionel Messi may be convinced to stay Barcelona by ‘Andres Iniesta clone’ Pedri, according to reports.

    The Argentine outlined his desire to leave Catalonia last summer.

    But when it became apparent that he would have to take his boyhood club to court in order to force an immediate transfer, he opted to stay put for another year.

    Messi, 33, is still widely expected to leave upon the expiry of his contract in June – with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain sniffing around.

    But according to the Mail, the progress of summer recruit Pedri, 18, could convince him to stay.

    JAN THE MAN

    Martin Keown has claimed Liverpool should sign Southampton defender Jannik Vestergaard.

    He told talkSPORT: “It’s his passing. He reminds me of Van Dijk.

    “I call it a stationary platform.

    "When you don’t run with the ball you stop and when you look at those two, the way the ping balls, the way he threads things into midfield, the challenges, he’s a big man.”

    BELE ACHE

    Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is on the verge of signing for LaLiga outfit Atletico Madrid.

    Diego Simeone has been keen to add another forward after Diego Costa has his contract terminated by mutual consent.

    And Lyon's sporting director Juninho has confirmed that the French star will soon become part of Simeone's squad.

    Speaking to Telefoot Chaine, Juninho said: "Moussa came to see me, he thinks that this is the moment to change teams, that he has lost a bit of motivation.

    "This was not something we foresaw, I like him a lot. Keeping someone who does not really want to live in an intense way through the next five months, that is not ideal.

    "We are in talks with Atletico, I think that Moussa has found an agreement with Atletico."

    DONE DEAL

    Sunderland have confirmed the signing of Carl Winchester from Forest Green Rovers.

    The 27-year-old midfielder has penned a two-and-a-half-year deal at the Stadium of Light.

    Speaking of his move, he said: "It’s a massive club and once I heard about the interest, there was only one place I wanted to come.

    "I’ll give my all for the team and I’ll go out there and wear my heart on my sleeve. The Head Coach (Lee Johnson) believes in me and I believe in myself.

    "I’m coming into my prime, so I’m hoping I can settle in well with the lads and kick on from there.”
