Guardian Rumour Mill

Simon Burnton

Chelsea want to bolster their midfield with another player who isn’t as bad as Tiémoué Bakayoko, and have clearly learned from the experience of expensively signing a sought-after midfielder from a club on the French Riviera only to be disappointed by his performances. This time they have identified, um, a sought-after midfielder from a club on the French Riviera, in the shape of the £35m Jean-Michaël Seri, who plays in Frillypink, a scant 20km from Bakayoko’s Monégasque former employers. Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have also been monitoring the 26-year-old’s performances but according to the Sun his preference would be a move to England.

Internazionale, having so far this season scored nine fewer league goals than Napoli, 13 fewer than Lazio and 14 fewer than Juventus, want a striker who can help engorge their goals-for column and have identified Daniel Sturridge as the man to do it. Liverpool, however, will want £30m or “a hefty loan fee” before they green-light the deal, demands so hefty that they “scared off Real Betis”.

That, at least, is according to the Mirror; a similar story is splashed across the Gazzetta dello Sport’s front page, although they say the player “was offered to the club 12 days ago” and that the proposed “loan without a redemption option” makes the deal a veritable bargain. Meanwhile an Inter player could be heading in the other direction, with West Ham having opened talks over a loan move for João Mário, according to RMC Sport. However, they report that there is “a big snag”, namely that the player has little desire to play for West Ham. Still, this might not be of critical importance, with English clubs boasting some very convincing chequebooks at present.

Talking of which, Alexis Sánchez will be paid £450,000 a week by Manchester United, say the Times and the Mail. He will be paid £500,000 a week, say the Mirror and the Express. No, he’ll pocket £505,000 a week, insists the Sun. Nonsense, says the Telegraph, he’ll get just under £27m a year before tax – or £519,000 a week. All agree that he will move to Old Trafford – United would like to complete the deal by Friday lunchtime, so the Chilean can make his debut against Burnley on Saturday – and that they will make him extremely wealthy. Héctor Bellerín may also be heading out of Arsenal’s exit, though not until the summer: according to Tuttosport Juventus are ready to spend £40m on him, and also want Espanyol’s Pau López, who handily shares Bellerín’s agents, the “holistic career management agency” Goal Management, and even more handily will by then be out of contract.

Everton’s January spree shows no signs of slowing down, with left-back the next problem position for them to address. Bayern Munich’s Juan Bernat is linked in the Liverpool Echo, though even by the standards of traditional British transfer gossip this story seems particularly speculative.

Stefan Reuter, Augsberg’s general manager, is selling the club’s left-back Kostas Stafylidis to his former Borussia Dortmund team-mate Paul Lambert, whose personal connections have helped Stoke leapfrog Roma and Fiorentina in the chase for the former Fulham flankman. “The deal is not yet official but it is in the last leg,” Reuter said yesterday.

Guardian Rumour Mill

Barry Glendenning

Having been mentioned in jest on yesterday’s award-winning Guardian podcast Football Weekly Extra, a move for Peter Crouch from Stoke City to Chelsea now looks like it might actually happen. The Premier League champions had been linked with Andy Carroll, but the West Ham totem’s state of perma-knack means that particular switch – like the player himself – is not currently a runner. An ankle injury means the unfortunate Carroll faces another extended period on the sidelines and if Stoke aren’t prepared to sell Crouchie, Chelsea will move for Brian Deane, John Carew or Jan Koller. The Roma striker Edin Dzeko is another one of several big men with a goodish touch who is is being reported to be on Antonio Conte’s radar, but it’s understood they have a more pressing need for a homegrown player to meet their Premier League squad quota. Dzeko’s team-mate, the Roma left-back Emerson Palmieri and his Juventus counterpart Alex Sandro also feature prominently on the Chelsea shopping list.

Manchester City are prepared to try to hijack any move Juve make for Liverpool midfielder Emre Can, who may not go anywhere now that his current employers have been unsuccessful in their bid to sign Schalke’s Leon Goretzka, who has joined Bayern Munich. In similar party-pooping mode, Tottenham Hotspur might try to scupper Manchester United’s well-documented attempts to sign Paris Saint-Germain outcast Lucas Moura. Italian pink paper La Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that United are also interested in taking Juve’s Argentinian striker Paulo Dybala, but say the 24-year-old will have to submit a transfer request before any bids are considered.

Now that Theo Walcott is an Everton player, Aaron Lennon’s future at the Merseyside club is shrouded in uncertainty, a state of affairs that has got antennae twitching at Newcastle, who might try to sign the winger on loan for the rest of the season. The Magpies are also being linked with a loan move for Leicester’s Islam Slimani, but will have to duke it out with Besiktas in the battle to secure his services. Reports from the South Coast suggest goal-shy Brighton are on the verge of signing 24-year-old PSV striker Jürgen Locadia, while further north West Brom are interested in Basel right-back Michael Lang.

And finally, assorted long-running transfer sagas could finally conclude by stumps today, with the news that Manchester United are expected to wrap up their deal to sign Arsenal playmaker Alexis Sánchez, sending Henrikh Mkhitaryan down to that there Big London as part of the well-documented deal. Should United conclude their business by noon, Sanchez could feature in their match against Burnley this weekend.

The Arsenal chief executive is instead hoping to wrap up a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a disruptive dressing-room influence the Gooners don’t really need who, at the age of 28, is unlikely to see the error of his trouble-making ways at this stage of his professional life. Should Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan sign for Arsenal this month, expect Mesut Özil to demand a hefty pay-rise to ensure he remains the club’s top earner.

Much like certain fairground rides on Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Chelsea’s search for a new target man is subject to strict height restrictions and after being linked with Peter Crouch, Andy Carroll and a couple of decidedly indifferent giraffes from London Zoo, the Premier League champions are understood to be firming up a bid of around £45m for Roma striker Edin Dzeko, in a deal including his team-mate, the left-back Emerson Palmieri. The Bosnian beanpole played most of Roma’s 1-1 draw at Inter last night, in the wake of which his manager straight-batted questions about a possible move.

“I am not in charge of the transfer market, so those are not questions for me,” said Eusebio Di Francesco. “I will only say he’s an important player and I try to use the most important players.” Talks between the two clubs are expected to resume today, while a certain Stoke City striker remains hopeful that nothing good will come of them and he might get the nod instead.

The future of Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge remains up in the air, with Inter and Sevilla both believed to be interested in offering him a gig. Inter were hoping to take him on loan for the rest of the season with a view to offering him a permanent deal if things worked out, but the 28-year-old has had his head turned by the garish orange groves of Seville and would like his employers to ship him out to that particular city’s local club.

And finally, Newcastle United are reported to have been offered the chance to take World Cup winning Borussia Dortmund and Germany striker André Schürrle on an 18-month loan deal, but may have to fend off interest from Stoke City. Whichever club lands the 27-year-old will have to pay half his £150,000 per-week wages. Bristol City left-back Joe Bryan is also on Newcastle’s radar, while Everton are also monitoring his situation.

Guardian Rumour Mill

Barry Glendenning

Alexis Sánchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan might have slept the sleep of both the just and the just-signed-another-whopping-great-contract last night, but the Rumour Mill doesn’t get to rest. With the January transfer window open for several more days, increasingly panic-stricken recruitment departments of various football clubs are hastily steering their trolleys around the aisles, frantically checking to see what over-priced players are left on the shelves.

Not content with being 12 points clear of Manchester United in the Premier League, Manchester City are ready to ramp up their well-documented interest in the Athletic Bilbao central defender Aymeric Laporte and tabloid reports on Tuesday morning suggest they may pay the £60m release clause on the 23-year-old’s contract. Pep Guardiola is also rumoured to be super keen on bringing Shakhtar Donetsk’s highly rated midfielder Fred to the Etihad sooner rather than later. City had been expected to make their move for the Brazilian this summer, but the sight of Fabian Delph loitering around the physio room means they will offer the Ukrainian club more money in a bid to grease the wheels and speed up a deal.

Meanwhile in south London Christian Benteke’s inability to hit a cow’s backside with a banjo means Crystal Palace are in dire need of striking options and are investigating the possibility of bringing Internazionale’s Brazil-born Italy international Éder to Selhurst Park. With only one goal in 17 appearances for the Serie A side to his name this season, it’s difficult to see how the 31-year-old veteran would constitute much of an improvement.

Also toothless up front, Newcastle are plotting a move to bring the Atlético Madrid striker Kevin Gameiro to St James’ Park and tabloid reports say the Magpies owner, Mike Ashley, has sanctioned a move for the £16m-rated striker who has scored six goals this season. Newcastle are also expected to sign Chelsea’s cultural attache to China, Kenedy, on loan within the next 24 hours.

Having been linked with Manchester United for several months, “sources” close to Paris Saint-Germain outcast Lucas Moura say he may now end up at Tottenham Hotspur instead. West Ham striker Javier Hernández is another high profile, want-away player who is agitating for a move. “There are a number of clubs interested in his services, he’s a player everyone knows and is incredibly professional,” said his representative, Eduardo Hernández, peddling his agenda on Agenda Fox Sports. “Our primary focus is a club in which he can play the most games possible.” With Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll both sidelined, West Ham may not be so keen to let their Mexican frontman leave, but the Hammers are eager to reinforce their midfield and Lyon’s Clement Grenier remains in their cross-hairs.

Having appeased their fans with the acquisition of Mkhitarian, Arsenal find themselves under considerably less pressure to sign Borussia Dortmund bad boy Patrick Aubamayang and will be unfazed by speculation that the German club want Olivier Giroud in part exchange. With his opportunities at Arsenal limited, the French striker may well be happy to go to Germany after being informed he needs more game time if he is to be considered for a place in Didier Deschamps’ squad for Russia 2018.

And finally, Peter Crouch and Ashley Barnes will be gutted to learn the word coming out of Italy is that Roma have agreed a deal with Chelsea that will result in the much talked-about €50m (£44m) deal for Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri that will be finalised once the striker and full-back have coughed for the Stamford Bridge medical staff and agreed personal terms.

Guardian Rumour Mill

Simon Burnton

Aymeric Laporte is Manchester City-bound, according to the Sun, with the defender deciding that his decision to stay at Athletic Bilbao rather than head to England back in the summer of 2016 was, on reflection, a poor one. A bid of £57m will trigger the defender’s release clause and ping him on his way. Bilbao are so certain he’ll depart that they have already drawn up a shortlist of potential defensive replacements, with Arsenal’s free-scoring Nacho Monreal among them.

City’s move for Laporte comes after they apparently gave up on the overly-expensive Jonny Evans, which is inconvenient because West Bromwich Albion have just identified his replacement in the shape of the 29-year-old Zamalek and Egypt centre-back Ali Gabr, whom they can loan for an impressively precise fee of £438,000 and then buy in the summer for an additional £1.1m. Still, they could convince Arsenal to buy Evans instead, which could give them enough money to not only buy Gabr but also a shiny new striker, with Watford’s Troy Deeney and Newcastle’s Aleksandar Mitrovic the names in the frame. Their need for attacking reinforcements could become desperate should Salomón Rondón also head for the Hawthorns exit, with Liverpool and Everton both considering a bid for the £15m-rated Venezuelan.

On the subject of release clauses and potential Manchester City purchases, as we were not all that long ago, Jean Michaël Seri of Frillypink has one set at £35m and it could be triggered any minute now, though Manchester United are also keen to bring the midfielder to England. Should United, winners of the Mancunian rivals’ last transfer tussle, come second in this chase they might move instead for Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovacic.

Monaco will have to pay £2.6m – double their original offer – for the pleasure of Islam Slimani’s company for the remainder of the season, according to the Mail. The striker would apparently prefer to remain in England, but no team here is prepared to meet his £20m asking price. Newcastle could be tempted, but at the moment they’re a bit busy buying Feyenoord’s Nicolai Jørgensen, for “in the region of £16m”, instead.

The next stop on Lazar Markovic’s footballing odyssey could be in Russia, with Lokomotiv Moskow having decided that they and the Liverpool winger should share more than just initials: a loan deal for the 23-year-old is apparently on the cards. Daniel Sturridge is still expected to head to Italy, with Internazionale coming for him just as soon as they complete a deal for Paris St-Germain’s Javier Pastore (Pastore, for language fans out there, is Italian for shepherd). Chelsea’s Baba Rahman will meanwhile spend the rest of the campaign at Schalke, having turned down Inter and Everton in favour of a return to Germany.

Middlesbrough want to sign the Bradford striker Charlie Wyke, author of 12 goals in 24 league starts this season, who is valued at £5m – a frustratingly large sum for Boro given that Wyke was born in Middlesbrough, joined their academy at the age of seven, was their player for 15 years and was released for nothing three years ago. And Brighton’s £6m bid for Aden Flint has been rejected by Bristol City.

Finally, the Sun has done a hard-hitting expose of the cars driven by the players of Yeovil, Manchester United’s FA Cup opponents, revealing that the entire team’s motors – which include a VW Polo worth £4,450, a creaky Alfa Romeo worth £2,000 and a £5,900 Seat Ibiza – have a combined value of less than Alexis Sánchez’s £150,000 Bentley Continental.

Unable to get a start in a Real Madrid team that is already 19 points off the pace in La Liga, Mateo Kovacic could be offered a change of scenery by José Mourinho, who has just signed a new contract of his own at Manchester United. Despite his inability to impress Zinedine Zidane, the Croatian midfielder could be offered a deal by Manchester United, who see him as a possible heir apparent to Michael Carrick, who is not getting any younger. Having made three appearances in Mourinho’s first team in the first half of this season, United’s 20-year-old defender Axel Tuanzebe has joined Championship promotion challengers Aston Villa on loan.

Reports from Germany say Arsenal’s attempts to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund have hit a snag and a deal is increasingly unlikely to be made this month despite the occasionally petulant 28-year-old Gabon striker having done his best to incinerate his bridges with the German club. What this means for Olivier Giroud is anyone’s guess, but tabloid reports in England suggest his is the latest name to pop up in Chelsea’s increasingly entertaining quest to sign somebody tall. Mainz defender Abdou Diallo had also been linked with a move to Arsenal, but that particular German club’s sporting director, Rouven Schroder, insists the 21-year-old is “not for sale”.

Despite West Ham’s increasingly long injury list, Reece Oxford looks likely to return to Borussia Mönchengladbach for the rest of the season, despite being recalled by David Moyes at Christmas and playing in the Hammers’ FA Cup third-round win against Shrewsbury. A couple of days ago, the German club upset a few humourless, over-sensitive West Ham fans with a mildly amusing tweeted video of the teenager on a driving range with the caption “Wrong club perhaps, Reece Oxford?” Their sporting director Max Eberl has since told reporters “it looks very good that we can take him on loan again”.

Diafra Sakho is another man who could be heading for the West Ham exit door, having told the club he wants to leave. Ligue1 side Rennes looks to be his likely destination, even if it would be more fun if he teamed up with Mamadou Sakho and Bakary Sako at Crystal Palace. West Ham boss David Moyes is hoping to bring Fulham’s captain the Scotland midfielder Tom Cairney to the London Stadium and has also targeted Norwich City’s 21-year-old midfielder James Maddison, who is valued at £12m.

Crystal Palace want Lille defender Ibrahim Amadou, but have had two bids for the 24-year-old central defender rejected. Elsewhere in London, sightings of the lesser spotted Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura have been reported, if not confirmed. The Brazilian, who is anxiously seeking a move before the January window closes, was apparently seen at a meeting with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy.

Guardian Rumour Mill

Simon Burnton

Alexis Sánchez’s move to Manchester has convinced LA Galaxy the time could be right to resurrect their interest in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with someone telling ESPN that a deal is “the furthest along it has ever been” and now could possibly happen quite soon. Meanwhile in Spain, El Confidencial report that superagent Jorge Mendes is trying to make a Cristiano Ronaldo-David de Gea swap deal happen, although unhelpfully United believe that a goalkeeper in his prime should be worth considerably more than an ageing Portuguese wonderwinger.

The Monaco midfielder Fabinho has issued a come-and-get-me plea to the Premier League sides who were interested in him in the summer, a group that includes both Manchester clubs. “If a move [was possible] to a new league or a club with a bigger structure and bigger expectations, I would be interested,” he said. “My time with Monaco has been good, but I feel my time here is coming to an end.”

Newcastle have sent high-level representatives to the Czech Republic and hope they will come home with two signatures scrawled upon the papers in their leatherette briefcases. Viktoria Plzen’s Michael Krmencik, a 24-year-old who has scored 16 times in 20 first-team appearances this season, is their top target and could be secured for £10m, but they also hope to sneak a deal for the Sparta Prague goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. They are one of eight top-flight clubs – including Everton, Brighton and Burnley – said to have had scouts at the KCom Stadium on Saturday to watch Jarrod Bowen on the wing in Hull’s 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest, and hope to pip Liverpool to the signing of the 24-year-old Gremio striker Luan, who would cost around £17.5m.

Watford might have changed managers during the transfer window but they haven’t switched transfer targets: Sunderland’s Didier Ndong remains the apple of the Hornets’ eye, though they want him on loan with an option to buy in the summer, an idea Chris Coleman dismissed some time ago. Stoke have been told to cough up £16m if they want to sign Galatasaray’s Senegalese midfielder Badou Ndiaye, having had a bid for £2m less than that rebuffed. Also holding firm on the asking price of one of their players is Arsenal, who will happily sell Olivier Giroud to Chelsea – still on the hunt for a striker as their move for Roma’s Edin Dzeko wobbles – but not for a penny less than £35m.

Crystal Palace want to make three signings before the window shuts on Wednesday, starting with Burnley’s Ashley Barnes – who they hope to tempt south with an £11m bid – before shifting to the Lille defender Ibrahim Amadou and Jake Livermore. West Brom would use the money raised for a bid for Watford’s Troy Deeney, for whom they are “lining up an £18m bid”. West Ham’s Diafra Sakho, looks likely to move to Rennes for £9m, while André Ayew could also be on his way out of the London Stadium, with Swansea having decided that, what with the Wilfried Bony thing having gone so thrillingly well, buying back former strikers is a jolly good idea and are thus busily peeling £18m in used fivers from their bulging wallet. Finally Joe Hart would also seem to be on the way out: the Times reports that he will “push to end his loan deal” before the transfer window closes, having spent the last 10 league games kicking his heels on the touchline, and seek regular, or indeed any, football elsewhere.

Guardian Rumour Mill

Barry Glendenning

With a midweek round of Premier League matches inconveniently scheduled to clash with the final two days of the January transfer window, the Rumour Mill can’t help but ponder the notion that football has finally reached such a point of ludicrousness that there now exists a huge army of internet fanboys for whom the football played in the former is little more than a distraction from the white noise of the latter. For many, the frenzy surrounding the purchase of particular footballers has become more interesting than anything these guys actually do once they switch clubs.

Many, but not all. If nothing else, a lack of activity in the transfer market in recent weeks suggests Newcastle fans will be able to give their team’s match against Burnley on Wednesday their full attention. Having missed out on Daniel Sturridge despite labouring under the delusion they had a deal wrapped up, the Magpies are now being linked with Manchester City central defender Eliaquim Mangala, who will find himself surplus to requirements at the Etihad once Aymeric Laporte arrives from Athletic Bilbao for £57m. Feyenoord striker Nicolai Jorgensen has also been linked with a move to St James’ Park, where recent disappointments mean season ticket-holders are unlikely to be holding their breath waiting for any big – or even small – announcements.

In potentially good news for Peter Crouch, Fernando Llorente, Olivier Giroud and any other sentient male over 6ft tall who happens to be walking past Stamford Bridge at around 10.30pm (GMT) tomorrow, the mooted move of Edin Dzeko to Chelsea has fallen through after the Roma striker failed to agree personal terms on an 18-month contract. His Roma team-mate Emerson Palmieri will be flying in to cough for the Chelsea medics later today, after the two clubs agreed a fee of £17.6 plus £7m in add-ons for the left-back. Giroud remains the favourite to go to Chelsea instead of Dzeko, as Arsenal charitably bid to increase their London rivals’ chances of beating them to a Champions League qualification spot, while out-of-favour defender David Luiz could go the other way as a makeweight in any deal.

One of those players hailed as a real bargain when he was signed for £11m last summer, Swansea City flop Roque Mesa has gone to Sevilla on loan. Crystal Palace remain interested in Lille central defender Ibrahim Amadou and Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita, while Burnley have made an audacious £10m bid for Nottingham Forest’s 21-year-old centre-half Joe Worrall. Relegation threatened Stoke are hoping to get their £14m deal for Galatasaray midfielder Badou Ndiaye over the line today, but will miss out on 21-year-old local lad-turned-New York City star, Jack Harrison, who is off to Manchester City and will promptly be shipped out on loan to Middlesbrough.

And finally, in dire need of a notoriously calming influence for the many overpaid and under-achieving troublemakers in their squad, Sunderland hope to sign Norn Iron and Hearts frontman Kyle Lafferty. Sunderland boss Chris Coleman had offered Chris Martin a loan deal, but decided the dithering Derby County striker wasn’t for him when he went all Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte by asking for 48 Hours and then Another 48 Hours to think about his decision.
