Manchester United transfer news: Wolves remain keen on signing out-of-favour Marcos Rojo who is available in January

Manchester United are willing to sell out-of-favour defender Marcos Rojo in January and Wolverhampton Wanderers could make a bid, according to reports.

Wolves were keen on the player last summer but were unable to land him with the player apparently considering them a ‘minor club’.

Three months down the line, the promoted side are just four points behind the Red Devils in the Premier League table.

And, according to the Birmingham Mail, with Man United ready to sell, Wolves are on alert once more and could attempt another move for the Argentina international, who hasn’t made a single appearance for his club this season.

The report also suggests Eric Bailly could be sold by Jose Mourinho as he looks to freshen up his defence for the second transfer window running.

Transfer news: Inter Milan in pole position to sign Arsenal and Tottenham target Hector Herrera

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur target Hector Herrera is in advanced talks with Inter Milan over a summer free transfer.

The Premier League duo have monitored the Porto midfielder in the last few seasons but are yet to make a concrete move at this time.

Porto ace Hector Herrera.

Herrera, 28, is out of contract in the summer and he is still yet to pen an extension, which has opened the door to a departure.

Both Arsenal and Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for the Mexico international, who has impressed in the Portuguese top flight since arriving from Pachuca in 2013.

But there is a new front-runner in a race to land him at the end of the season – Inter Milan.

According to Sport Italia, the San Siro club are already in discussions about a possible swoop which could come via a pre-contract agreement in the new year or a cash switch during the transfer window.

There is still time for either Arsenal or Spurs to make their move but Inter are currently considered in pole position to complete a deal for the 28-year-old.

Manchester City told transfer target Allan is not for sale by Napoli as they attempt to beat Chelsea to his signature

Manchester City have attempted to beat Chelsea to the signing of Napoli ace Allan but had their enquiry knocked back by the Serie A side.

The Brazilian midfielder has been one of Napoli’s stand-out performers this season and as such they have told the Premier League leaders he’s not for sale.

Napoli star Allan in action.

His form has not gone unnoticed and he is poised to make his international debut in Brazil’s friendly against Uruguay this week, which could increase his appeal to even more clubs.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is a huge fan of Allan, who he managed during his time in charge at Napoli but now reports in Italy have claimed that Manchester City are tracking him too.

Calciomercato has reported that the Premier League champions have even made contact with Napoli about the potential availability of the 27-year-old.

But the Stadio San Paolo club have no intention of selling him yet having only tied him down to a five-year deal earlier in 2018.

Newcastle United transfer news: Magpies warned they can’t afford top target Sebastien Haller

Newcastle United have been handed a huge blow ahead of the January transfer window after the agent of target Sebastien Haller claimed he’s now only affordable for elite clubs.

The Eintracht Frankfurt star has impressed again this season, scoring eight goals in 11 matches as he excels in the Bundesliga.

Eintracht Frankfurt ace Sebastien Haller.

The form of the 24-year-old had led to Newcastle making the Frenchman their No.1 transfer target for the January transfer window.

The St James’ Park club have made a miserable start to the season but hope the prolific striker could help turn things around in the second half of the campaign.

But now Haller’s agent, Karlheinz Forster, has suggested that his client’s supreme form may just take him out of Newcastle’s price range.

Forster told Bild: “Such players become only interesting for the top clubs.

“Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid or Barcelona. Only these clubs can afford them in the future.”

Leeds transfer news: Championship club target former Arsenal youngster Chris Willock

Leeds United are continuing to monitor former Arsenal youngster Chris Willock with a view to a loan deal in January.

The 20-year-old joined Benfica in June 2017, signing a five-year contract after deciding to leave the north London club.

Chris Willock left Arsenal after just two first team appearances

He made just two appearances for the Arsenal first team, with his debut coming in the EFL Cup clash against Nottingham Forest in September 2016 and he is still waiting for his senior debut at Benfica.

However, he has been playing regularly for the club’s reserve side and it is here where a series of impressive performances have caught the eye.

According to O Jogo, Leeds have now stepped up their pursuit of the pacey forward and could look to land him when the transfer window opens in January.

Southampton transfer news: Fiorentina target Manolo Gabbiadini as they seek to solve striker woes

Southampton could lose striker Manolo Gabbiadini in January as Fiorentina consider a move.

La Viola have been struggling for goals this season, scoring just 18 time in 12 matches and only managing one against relegation battlers Frosinone last time out.

Southampton ace Manolo Gabbiadini.

The Italian giants have already got several options as they plot their transfer activity for the coming window.

Nicola Sansone, currently on the fringes at Villarreal and once of Sassuolo, is under consideration, while Besiktas forward Ryan Babel is another possibility as he seeks out a move.

Corriere dello Sport also believe Lyon starlet Martin Terrier could be ideal for the role, along with Ismaila Sarr from Rennes.

And Gabbiadini is also on their watchlist as they look for a proven goalscorer to join their ranks and fire them up the Serie A table.

The Southampton man has started just two Premier League games this campaign, scoring once, and appears to be available for the right offer.

Manchester United transfer news: Red Devils to battle Barcelona to sign Dani Olmo

Manchester United will rival Barcelona for the services of Dinamo Zagreb starlet Dani Olmo.

Olmo, the 20-year-old winger, left Barca in 2014 to join the Croatian club and he has since played 56 times in the top flight, scoring 11 goals and creating a further 14.

Olmo was part of Barcelona’s youth academy and has been capped at youth level by Spain

And now, according to reports in Spain, the race is on to prise the youngster away from Zagreb and his former club are leading the charge.

Sport claims that Barca want to bring Olmo back to Camp Nou but United, as well as Marseille and Borussia Dortmund, are monitoring the situation closely.

It has been reported that Dinamo have already rejected a number of bids for the versatile forward and they are unwilling to do business for anything less than £22million.

That figure should not put off the likes of Manchester United, who have reportedly scouted him extensively over the past few months.

Chelsea transfer news: Roma ready to thwart Blues bid to sign Kostas Manolas

Chelsea could be denied in their bid to sign Kostas Manolas as Roma prime a new contract for their defensive ace.

The Blues, along with Juventus and Bayern Munich, are interested in the centre-back who is considered one of the best in Italian football.

Roma star Kostas Manolas celebrates

The 27-year-old is now into his fifth season in the Italian capital, however his current contract contains a release clause set at a reasonably low £31.5million and Roma are sweating on the situation.

Chelsea are long-term admirers of Manolas and were heavily linked with a summer move for him while Bayern and Juve are interested in January swoops.

Manolas celebrates after Roma’s famous Champions League win over Barcelona.

So now, according to the Corriere dello Sport, Roma’s sporting director Monchi is in the process of drawing up fresh terms for Manolas which would crucially erase that clause.

The new contract is expected to include a pay rise which would tempt the Greece international into committing his future to Roma.

Arsenal transfer news: Gunners scout Italy starlet Gianluca Mancini but must fight for his services

Arsenal are continuing to scout Atalanta defender Gianluca Mancini after his impressive start to the season.

With Mattia Caldara leaving for AC Milan in the summer and Andrea Masiello picking up an injury, the 22-year-old has stepped up to the plate.

Atalanta star Gianluca Mancini

He’s performed admirably in his eight Serie A appearances and scouts have taken note.

Among them, according to CalcioMercato, have been representatives from Arsenal while Borussia Dortmund are also monitoring his progress.

As well as impressing at the heart of defence, Mancini has also chipped in with three goals in as many games and his form has been instrumental in Atalanta’s rise to eighth in the table.

The Gunners may have to make a decision quickly though with Inter Milan, who Mancini scored against at the weekend, also eyeing the player as they hunt for a young defender.

Marko Arnautovic: West Ham star ready to leave club as agent says forward needs to play for a ‘top team’

West Ham are facing a big battle to keep hold of their star man Marko Arnautovic.

The Austrian forward has admitted he is keen to play at the highest level possible while his brother and agent, Danijel, has suggested he could push for a transfer as soon as January.

Marko Arnautovic has scored 16 goals in 46 games for West Ham

A £20million signing from Stoke in 2017, Arnautovic made a slow start to his Hammers career but has become a firm fans’ favourite at the London Stadium.

He scored 11 goals and claimed six assists last season to help keep the club in the Premier League and, this term, has netted five goals in 10 appearances.

He is integral to Manuel Pellegrini’s team but, as he approaches 30, the former Inter Milan forward is eyeing another shot at Champions League football before his career is over.

“I’m 29, so that’s the best age,” he told the Austrian newspaper Kurier. “It’s clear that I want to compete with the best players. But in this affair I totally trust my brother.”

Danijel Arnautovic, who acts as his representative, added: “He’s already playing in the Premier League and that’s where the best players are. But for a player like Marko this cannot be the end.

“He’s a big part of West Ham’s team but I think it’s possible to tease out more of him. For that to happen, he has to play for a top team.

Marko Arnautovic was a club record signing for West Ham in 2017 when he joined from Stoke for £20m

“Marko is ready for the next step. A player like him should not play against relegation. He should play for the international spots.

“Marko is really enjoying playing for West Ham. He loves that club and the fans. But there is still that feeling, that this cannot be the end. And everybody should understand that.”

Arnautovic was linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

Asked if it is possible Arnautovic could be on the move soon, his brother added: “That’s possible.

“It was already very, very close this last summer.

“There were two Champions League clubs. I cannot reveal more. So there are options. And we are probing.”
