Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Inter Milan move ahead of Spurs in race to sign Joachim Andersen

Inter Milan have moved ahead of Tottenham in the battle to sign Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria.

Andersen, the 22-year-old defender, has earned plenty of admirers this season after nailing down a spot in the Italian side’s first team.

Andersen has caught the eye representing Samp this season
 

Spurs are tracking the centre-back closely and he is considered an ideal replacement for Toby Alderweireld, who is out of contract in the summer.

But, according to Corriere dello Sport, it is Inter who appear to be favourites to sign the Denmark youth international next summer.

The San Siro club have kicked off talks for Andersen with Sampdoria, and sporting director Piero Ausilio is working hard to broker a deal.

Ausilio has also sat down with Andersen’s agent and sounded him out over the player joining the Nerazzurri at the end of the season.

Tottenham must now work hard to catch up with Inter or risk missing out on Andersen.

The north Londoners were first linked with Andersen last month, with reports claiming they have been scouting the young defender since August.

The Italian media has also been praising the midfielder, comparing him to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, and it is thought he would suit the English game.

However, according to Calciomercato, Napoli are ready to go head to head with the north Londoners for Barella’s signature.

Leeds United transfer news: Juventus must make final decision on loan move, says target Moise Kean

Leeds United target Moise Kean will allow Juventus to decide whether he should go out on loan in January.

The 18-year-old is highly-rated by the Italian club’s coaching staff, who believe he is on course for a big future.

Juventus striker Moise Kean is highly-rated by the club.
 

However, the striker has played just 12 minutes this season after coming off the bench during Juventus’ Champions League win over Young Boys in October.

It has led to speculation that Kean could be loaned out in January in order for him to gain more first-team experience.

The Italy under-21 international was a target for Leeds in the summer, who failed with a loan bid for him then.

Kean scored against England’s Under-21s this week.
 

The Championship club have since been linked with a renewed approach in January, but Kean has revealed it will be Juventus who decides if he goes.

“I don’t know yet,” Kean told TMW when quizzed if he could leave in January.

“I am training and then the club will decide. I am learning so much by training alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, it’s a great experience.”

While much of the game was spent focused on Wayne Rooney, the potential wonderkids on display were happy to play their part.

Manchester United transfer news: Juventus star Paulo Dybala rubbishes Red Devils link despite revealing desire to play with Paul Pogba again

Paulo Dybala has distanced himself from a move to Manchester United, despite revealing he wants to play alongside former Juventus teammate Paul Pogba again.

The diminutive attacking midfielder has developed into one of the brightest talents in world football and is surely set to be vying for Ballon d’Or crowns once they are released from the clutches of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Although rumours of a move to the Premier League have continued to float about, the Argentina international seems settled in Turin.

Dybala and Pogba stuck up a bond in Turin

However, one of his closest friends from Italy is now plying his trade in England – one Paul Pogba. The Manchester United midfielder remains in close contact with Dybala and (according to the former Palermo star) would like to play alongside one another in the future after facing each other in the Champions League.

“The first match was amazing for me, the second amazing for him,” Dybala told the Daily Mirror.

“We have remained in touch since he left. “We’re still very close and who knows, maybe in the future we can play together again.”

However, fans of Manchester United may not wish to get too excited as a move to Old Trafford seems highly unlikely.


When asked if he could move to the Red Devils, Dybala quickly replied: “I’m not thinking about the transfer market.

“Right now I’m really happy at Juventus and the focus is simply winning all the titles here.”

Transfer gossip: Chelsea and Manchester United target Mauro Icardi could be sold by Inter Milan with Financial Fair Play sanctions looming

Mauro Icardi could be on his way to either Manchester United or Chelsea with Inter Milan reportedly facing financial woes.

The San Siro club are, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, in line to receive sanctions from UEFA for breaching Financial Fair Regulations.

The Argentine has scored goals for fun in Serie A
 

The governing body are said to have informed Inter they need to balance their books and raise €50million (£44million) by June or risk facing sanctions.

To do so it has been suggested the Serie A side can generate the money through player sales – and Mauro Icardi is the prime target.

The striker is already a wanted man, with both Chelsea and Manchester United hot on his tail.

The Argentina international has already struck seven times this season in Serie A, and chipped in with two assists.

Chelsea and Manchester United would both love to snap up the 25-year-old and they may now get their chance if Inter need to raise funds.

Icardi currently has a release clause of around £90million in his current contract.

Kadeem Harris: Leeds and Aston Villa chase winger with Cardiff contract expiring at end of season

Leeds United and Aston Villa are showing interest in signing Cardiff’s Kadeem Harris, according to reports.

The 25-year-old winger has impressed since being introduced into Cardiff’s first-team by Neil Warnock, scoring once in the defeat of Fulham – the Bluebirds’ first win of the season.

Harris has caught the eye since being reintroduced into the Cardiff line-up

He’s already played more matches this season than he did in the entirety of the previous campaign, when Cardiff won promotion to the Premier League as Championship runners-up.

However, the 25-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and talks have yet to begin over tying his future down in Wales.

And, according to The Sun, second tier sides Leeds and Aston Villa are keen on capturing Harris.

Clubs are able to talk to Harris over him signing a pre-contract agreement at the beginning of January, as he will have less than six months on his existing deal from the turn of the year.


Bolton are also named as showing interest in Harris, while it is believed there could be rival interest from top flight clubs for his signature.

Harris started his career at Wycombe, making 26 appearances before joining Cardiff in January 2012.

He has gone on to enjoy loan spells with Brentford and Barnsley, and has made 69 appearances for Cardiff.

City believe the Italian has a bright future ahead of him and, with interest in him growing, they want to snap him up quick.

“Maybe my hair is similar. My role model was [Gennaro] Gattuso in terms of grit.”
