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

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.
REDS GIVEN GREEN LIGHT FOR NEW VAN DIJK BID
Liverpool have been handed a boost in their attempt to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, reports the Mirror .
The Reds were forced to apologize after their failed attempt to sign the £70million-rated Dutch centre-back in the summer was deemed illegal, but recent comments from Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino have opened the door for a possible winter move.
SPORTING GIVE WEST HAM CARVALHO HOPE
West Ham have been offered renewed hope over a move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho, after the club indicated they were willing to listen to offers for the Portugal international, reports the Express .
The Hammers were denied when they attempted to move for the holding midfielder in the summer, but Sporting have now said they are open to a January move for the 25-year-old.
IBRA, POGBA SET FOR MAN UTD RETURN
Manchester United could be set to receive a huge boost, with The Sun reporting Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba are in contention to make the bench for Saturday's match against Newcastle.
Both players have returned to full training after long spells on the sideline. Pogba has missed 12 matches with a hamstring injury suffered in September, while Ibrahimovic has been out since April with a cruciate knee ligament injury.
MAN CITY BATTLE MAN UTD FOR GRIEZMANN
Manchester City are competing with Manchester United to sign Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, according to Sport's print edition.
United were expected to sign the France international last summer, but saw their move fall apart when Atleti's transfer ban was upheld, ensuring they could not replace the 26-year-old. However, they now have to battle with their local rivals who want to add even more firepower.
AC MILAN WANT WILLIAN
AC Milan are looking to give Chelsea winger Willian more game-time by bringing him to Serie A, according to Calciomercato .
The Brazilian has started just six games for the Blues this season, having made just 15 starts in the last campaign as Chelsea lifted the Premier League trophy. Milan have gotten off to a poor start this season and are looking to turn things around, with the 29-year-old seen as the perfect addition to strengthen the frontline.
NEYMAR WANTED TO CANCEL PSG TRANSFER
A repentant Neymar tried to pull the plug on his world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain before the deal was even signed, claims Marca .
The Brazilian became the world's most expensive player this summer when he swapped Barcelona for the French capital in a €222 million transfer. But he was apparently distraught upon finalising the paperwork, and asked Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu to cancel the deal.
Thanks to the manoeuvrings of father and agent Neymar Sr., however, the deal reportedly was completed against the player's wishes.
BETIS LOOK TO SIGN WILSHERE
La Liga side Betis are closing in on a move for unsettled Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the Sun .
Wilshere is one of several Gunners stars whose current deals are coming to an end at the end of the season.
And with little progress made on a fresh contract, the Spanish club have moved in to try and convince him to seek new climes.
PREMIER LEAGUE SIDES WANT MARI
Manchester City defender Pablo Mari has attracted attention from a host of the leaders' Premier League rivals, according to the Daily Mail .
Mari, 24, is currently on loan at NEC Breda, where he has been given the captain's armband.
The Spaniard's hulking 6'3" frame and skill on the ball has caught the eye of several clubs, who are interested in taking him from the Etihad Stadium.
ARSENAL WILL SWAP ALEXIS FOR STERLING
Alexis Sanchez may be allowed to join Manchester City if the Citizens are willing to release Raheem Sterling as part of the deal, claims the Daily Mail .
Arsenal's Chilean star has been widely linked with a move to join Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium, although the Gunners have as of yet refused to sanction a transfer.
But his contract is up at the end of the season, and Sterling would be an acceptable makeweight to allow Arsenal to cut their losses, although it is far from clear whether Pep would agree to such a deal.
EVERTON MAKE SECOND MOVE FOR SILVA
Everton are undeterred in their pursuit of Marco Silva and will approach the Wolves manager a second time, according to the Liverpool Echo .
The Toffees have been without a permanent trainer since sacking Ronald Koeman, and have placed Silva at the top of their wishlist.
So far efforts to convince him to leave the Championship table-toppers have failed, but Everton plan to make another attempt to land the Portuguese manager.
BAYERN WANT GIROUD
Bayern Munich are eyeing a move for a back-up striker to Robert Lewandowski, with Arsenal's Olivier Giroud seen as a possible target, according to Sport Bild .
The Frenchman has seen his opportunities limited at Emirates Stadium in recent times, with the summer signing of Alexandre Lacazette further blocking his path to the starting XI.
Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg is seen as another option, with the Dane having apparently caught the attention of a number of Europe's top clubs with his performances.
