ARSENAL & CHELSEA IN FOR RICHARLISON

Arsenal and Chelsea are the latest clubs to show an interest in Watford forward Richarlison.

According to the Star on Sunday, the Gunners are set to battle north London rivals, Tottenham, over the 20-year-old in the January transfer window.

But the Sun on Sunday report that Chelsea are also monitoring the Brazilian's progress after a superb start to life at Vicarage Road.

HENRY ON WALES SHORTLIST

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is on Wales's shortlist as they search for the new manager, according to The Sunday People.

The Euro 2016 semi-finalists are looking for a new coach following Chris Coleman's resignation, with Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy also being considered.

But Henry, who has spent the past year working as assistant manager for Belgium, is the surprise candidate to make his first steps into outright management. 

MAN CITY JOIN GORETZKA RACE

Manchester City are the latest club to show an interest in signing Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka, according to the Sunday Mirror.

The Germany international is seen as one of Bundesliga's hottest properties, with Bayern Munich heavily linked with his signature.

But now City have joined the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Barcelona in registering their interest in the 22-year-old.

MOURINHO WANTS WILLIAN AT MAN UTD

Jose Mourinho wants to bring Willian to Manchester United if the Brazilian leaves Chelsea this winter, according to the Sunday Express.

The Blues want to bring in PSG's Lucas Moura, leaving the future uncertain for the 29-year-old, who starred at Chelsea under Mourinho. 

CITY TURN TO VAN AANHOLT

Manchester City's pursuit of a new left-back has seen them turn to Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt, according to The Sun on Sunday.

City boss Pep Guardiola is keen to bring in cover for the injured Benjamin Mendy during the January transfer window, and sees Van Aanholt as a cut-price option.

The former Chelsea and Sunderland full-back is likely to be available for around £12 million should City make their move.

SOLER DEMANDS £45M MAN UTD MOVE

Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler has demanded his club agree a January deal for him to move to Manchester United, claims  The Sun .

United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified the Spain Under 21 international as his No.1 target to improve his creative midfield options in the New Year.

Though Soler has an €80 million release clause in his contract, the player wants Valencia to accept £45m from United, so he can complete a transfer to the Premier League.

REAL MADRID READY £60M BID FOR AGUERO

Real Madrid are preparing a £60m bid to bring Sergio Aguero to La Liga, according to Don Balon .

City are willing to sell their all-time record goalscorer if they can sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, which would pave the way for Zinedine Zidane's side to seal a deal for the Argentina striker.

CITY & BAYERN CHASE LYON WINGER

Manchester City and Bayern Munich have made offers to sign Lyon’s 16-year-old winger Willem Geubbels, reports  RMC Sport .

Geubbels made history in September when he became the first player born in the 21st century to appear in Ligue 1, and Lyon are hoping to fight off interest from City and Bayern to secure the attacker on a professional contract.

CHELSEA WATCH INTER DUO

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is interested in Mile Skriniar and Antonio Candreva of Inter Milan, according to the Express .

The Blues boss is monitoring the progress of the Inter duo, and has sent scouts to watch them in action in Serie A. Skriniar is a new signing at San Siro, but his performances have already seen him linked with bigger clubs including Barcelona.

Candreva played under Conte when the latter was Italy coach, and it is believed that the 48-year-old would like to work with the winger again.

MAN UTD TO MAKE ANOTHER RUN AT BALE

Manchester United are set to make a third run at Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale, according to the Mirror .

The report states Madrid have grown tired of Bale's injury problems while the Red Devils are confident manager Jose Mourinho could better manage the Wales star to return him to his Premier League fitness levels. 

However, United will have to approach the £85 million price tag the La Liga champions originally spent on the attacker, since Bale's current deal runs until 2022. 

MAN UTD TO MAKE JANUARY MOVE FOR ROSE

Jose Mourinho will try to bring Tottenham left-back Danny Rose to Manchester United in the January transfer window, claims The Sun.

Rose has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford and reports suggest the England international is interested in joining the Red Devils.

Tottenham will need to be persuaded to offload Rose, who has recently returned from a long-term injury lay-off, midway through the season, but United could offer Luke Shaw as part of any deal.

OZIL IS BARCA'S COUTINHO BACK-UP

Barcelona are lining up Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil as a back-up signing to Philippe Coutinho, reports Mundo Deportivo .

Liverpool star Coutinho is again expected to be targeted by Barca during the January transfer window after they failed to push through a deal in the summer.

But, if Liverpool stand firm once more on Coutinho, Barca will instead move for Ozil, who is out of contract at the end of the season and could be available for a reasonable fee in January.

INTER LINE UP ATLETICO DEFENDER

Inter Milan want to sign Atletico Madrid defender Jose Maria Gimenez at the end of the season, reports Corriere dello Sport .

Gimenez has a €65 million release clause in his contract, but Inter are hoping to agree a deal to bring in the 22-year-old next summer to replace Miranda.

The Uruguay international has also been linked with Inter’s Serie A rivals Juventus and Roma, along with Premier League duo Liverpool and Manchester United.

BARCA TRACKING LYON MIDFIELDER

Barcelona are closely following the progress of Lyon midfielder Lucas Tousart this season, claims Mundo Deportivo .

Tousart has caught the eye since stepping in to replace the departed Corentin Tolisso and has been watched by several key Barca personnel this term.

ARSENAL SCOUT BORO WINGER

Arsenal are on the trail of Middlesbrough’s teenage winger Marcus Tavernier, reports the Daily Mail .

Tavernier recently scored the winner against Sunderland, and the England Under 19 international has also been watched by Everton, Bournemouth and Aston Villa.

BARCA MAKE FEKIR CONTACT

Barcelona have stepped up their interest in signing Nabil Fekir following reports Arsenal have made an offer for the Lyon attacker, according to Sport .

Fekir has enjoyed an impressive season so far for Lyon and is a prime target for Arsenal, while Real Madrid have also scouted him.

However, Barca are determined not to miss out on a deal for Fekir and have made contact regarding a deal which could cost in excess of €50 million.

MOURINHO PLOTS LUIZ SWOOP

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is planning a shock move for Chelsea centre-back David Luiz, according to the  Express

The former Chelsea boss is keeping tabs on the Brazilian's status after he was left off the matchday squad for the Blues' match against Man Utd two weeks ago. 

Luiz reportedly has fallen out with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte after questioning his tactics in the Blues' 3-0 Champions League defeat at Roma. 

MOU TO BE HANDED NEW MAN UTD DEAL

Manchester United are going to hand Jose Mourinho a lucrative new contract in an attempt to ward off interest from PSG, according to the Mirror .

A Daily Star report also claims that Mourinho has already given Ed Woodward assurances that he will not leave the club for the French side because he wants to stay and win the Premier League. 

MOU & CONTE TO BATTLE ZIDANE FOR BELOTTI

Manchester United and Chelsea are ready to do battle with Real Madrid over Torino striker Andrea Belotti, accroding to the  Express .

Belotti has a €100million (£89m) release clause in his contract, and all three clubs are interested in landing the attacker.
