    TORREIRA STAYS

    Arsenal loanee Lucas Torreira is set to stay put at Atletico Madrid until the end of the season.

    According to Le Nazione, Atletico are not willing to let Torreira go if they don't have a replacement lined up.

    The midfielder hasn't received much first-team football in Madrid and so the Gunners looked into recalling him and sending him out on loan elsewhere.

    But it seems like Atletico still believe in him enough to hold on to him

    LIVERPOOL TRANSFER PLANS

    Liverpool have been dealing with a defensive crisis ever since Virgil van Dijk's injury in October.

    Following Van Dijk's omission, which could see him getting sidelined until the end of the season, the Reds saw Joe Gomez and Joel Matip suffering the same fate.

    Klopp had to fill in those voids by placing Fabinho and Jordan Henderson out of position at the back.

    The German manager has stated that the defending Premier League champions will try to sign a defender on transfer deadline day.

    Klopp said: "We will try.

    "It is funny when you all think: 'Oh Liverpool will be just fine with the situation and they don't care or try.' We try but there is nothing to say until something happens.

    "We will see. We still try to do the right things. If that's possible, we will do it. If not, we won't."

    UPAMECANO PREM BOOST

    RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano has two Premier League options to choose from before the January transfer window slams shut.

    Upamecano has been linked with a number of clubs including Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

    According to the Daily Mail, the centre-back's agent confirmed he has two good options from England and will make a decision soon.

    This comes after his representatives met with Bayer Munich

    GARCIA TO BARCA LATEST

    Manchester City ace Eric Garcia continues to be linked with a move to Barcelona.

    Garcia has seen his first-team opportunities diminish dramatically in recent months following a series of impressive performances by centre-back duo John Stones and Ruben Dias.

    The 20-year-old defender is desperate to return to Spain and Barca manager Ronald Koeman is confident a deal will be finalised at some point.

    Barcelona would love to have Garcia over before the January transfer window slams shut.

    But even if that doesn't happen then Koeman believes they could sign him for free in the summer

    MBAPPE LATEST

    Real Madrid continue to keep tabs on Paris Saint-Germain megastar Kylian Mbappe.

    However, Real are not looking to sign Mbappe in the January transfer window and are instead getting ready for a summer bid.

    A bargain with PSG, though, won't come cheap and Los Blancos will have to sweeten the deal, according to Marca.

    Thus Real are keen to let either Vinicius Junior, Thibaut Courtois or Raphael Varane go the other way as the Ligue 1 champions have previously shown interest

    Danny Rose latest

    Tottenham ace Danny Rose came close to joining Trabzonspor on transfer deadline day.

    However, the January move collapsed after the Turkish side pulled the plug due to COVID-19 protocols.

    According to Football London, Rose would have to follow strict quarantine guidelines if he were to move abroad which means he would have to wait seven days before moving to Turkey.

    Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu said: “The transfer is very difficult after this time.

    "It will cost [take] seven days. Let’s make the transfers we can do [right now]."

    Real Madrid and Barcelona target Man Utd youngster

    Barcelona and Real Madrid are keeping tabs on Manchester United young prospect Facundo Pellistri.

    That is according to Sport Witness but the report doesn't make it clear if the La Liga giants are looking to make an immediate move for Pellistri.

    The 19-year-old winger is set to go out on loan to Alaves in order to gain more first-team football experience.

    Real and Barca may be keeping a watchful eye on the Uruguayan during his stint in Spain

    Hulk signs for Atletico Mineiro after Premier League snub

    HULK has snubbed a Premier League move by signing for Atletico Mineiro.

    The striker is returning to Brazil after ending his spell in China.

    Hulk has signed a two-year deal with Atletico Mineiro and the 34-year-old could finish his career at the club.

    The forward has spent four years in China at Shanghai SIPG and recently left.

    His departure put Premier League clubs on alert and he received offers to move to England.

    But Hulk has decided a return to Brazil is the best move at this stage of his career.

    FERNANDES TO GALATASARY

    Tottenham midfielder Gedson Fernandes could be set to move to Turkish giants Galatasaray, according to Sky Sports.

    When asked if the midfielder was set to leave Spurs, Jose Mourinho said: "Honestly, no. I don’t know.

    "I’m not saying, no. I’m just saying I don’t know."

    GIROUD LINKED WITH MOVE AWAY

    Olivier Giroud started against Wolves in Tuchel’s first game but was an unused sub against Burnley.

    Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham are likely to be ahead of him in the pecking order from here on which could see his Euro 2021 hopes in jeopardy.

    Antonio Conte is a big fan of Giroud and would be eager for a reunion at Inter Milan but Tuchel may feel he will be left threadbare in attack if the veteran leaves.

    Giroud has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for some time

    EUROPEAN SUPER LEAGUE

    Manchester United and Liverpool have been accused of plotting with Fifa and Real Madrid to ‘DESTROY’ football.

    LaLiga chief Javier Tebas says the ‘greedy’ Premier League giants have spent months scheming over an ‘obscene’ £4.6billion European Super League.

    The Spaniard insists United’s US owner Joel Glazer and Liverpool’s John W Henry have been working with Fifa president Gianni Infantino plus Madrid supremo Florentino Perez on plans that will ‘ruin’ the game.

    Tebas stormed: “This would be a disaster for football, it would destroy the ecosystem and balance of the game in Europe.

    “This whole underground project started with Infantino and Perez — but the Glazers and Liverpool were active too and held meetings.

    “They have all tried to keep it secret, before the stories emerged in October and since.”

    ‘VILE AND UNACCEPTABLE’

    Manchester United have labelled the racist abuse Marcus Rashford received on social media as ‘vile and unacceptable’.

    In an interview with Sky News on Sunday afternoon, United’s director of communications Charlie Brooks said: “We’re incredibly proud of Marcus on a number of levels for everything that he has done.

    “When it comes to the abuse that the players are suffering at the moment, it’s not just an issue for our club or for football in general, it’s society’s problem.

    “Football becomes a lightning rod for it and these people won’t win, the players won’t let it affect them, but nobody should have to put up with the level of abuse that players across the board are getting at the moment.“

    Here is what Rashford had to say about the abuse on Saturday evening:

    DAVIES SET FOR ANFIELD MOVE

    Liverpool are making a shock late move for Preston's Ben Davies to fill their centre-back void.

    Championship star Davies, 25, was all set to move to Celtic but SunSport expects a deal with Liverpool to go through on Monday.

    It appeared just a matter of whether Celtic signed him now or in the summer, when his North End contract expires.

    But they are set to be blown out the water at the 11th hour with Jurgen Klopp showing some surprise interest late in the window.

    Preston have accepted a £2million fee plus add-ons for Davies.

    The Reds are currently without Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez due to potentially season-ending injuries.

    And with Joel Matip sidelined too, Klopp has had a rethink on his initial plans not to bring in a new central defender.

    CHELSEA EYE LEIPZIG DEFENDER UPAMECANO

    Chelsea have emerged as the frontrunners to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.

    The Blues have struggled to keep clean sheets so far this season and currently sit seventh in the Premier League as a result.

    And while Thomas Tuchel has kept two clean sheets since arriving at the club, Chelsea are still said to be keen on adding to their back line.

    But German champions Bayern Munich are also in the running to acquire his services.

    As reported by SPORT1-Doppelpass, Volker Struth, Upamecano’s agent, said: “Hasan Salihamidžić [Bayern Munich sporting director] is making a real effort and has made a good impression [during the talks].

    “Otherwise, only the Premier League is in the race. There are still two top clubs in England. We will decide [on Upamecano’s next club] soon.”

    POCHETTINO DEPARTS SPURS FOR SECOND TIME

    Mauricio Pochettino's son Maurizio has quit Tottenham 14 months after the Argentine boss was sacked.

    The talented youngster has joined Championship side Watford on a permanent deal.

    The 19-year-old midfielder joined the Spurs academy from Southampton in 2017.

    Pochettino featured for the club's youth teams but has ended his time at Spurs more than a year after his dad was sacked.

    BLUES EYE BARCA STAR DEMBELE

    CHELSEA are said to be very interested in signing Barcelona forard Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona.

    According to Sport Witness, if the 23-year-old does not sign a new deal with the Catalan side then he could be on his way to Stamford Bridge.

    However, there is also reported interest from Juventus, so the Blues could yet be snuffed out of a potential agreement.

    Dembele has scored 25 goals in 95 games for Barcelona since joining in 2017.

    NO FUTURE FOR ROJO

    MANCHESTER UNITED are set to terminate Marcos Rojo’s contract.

    The Argentine signed his current deal in March 2018, but has started only five Premier League games since having not been fancied by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    But ahead of that deal’s scheduled expiry this summer, the Red Devils are set to end their association with the defender early.

    Solskjaer, 47, said: “[It is] likely that Marcos goes back to Argentina, [there is] a little bit of paperwork left to be done, I think.”

    The Spanish centre-back has been out of favour at the Etihad as John Stones and Ruben Dias have established a fruitful partnership in Pep Guardiola’s defence.

    And while the Gunners are hoping to sign the 20-year-old, according to Just Arsenal he would rather return to his former club Barcelona.

    MESSI SITUATION AFTER CONTRACT LEAK

    Barcelona are set to take legal action against Spanish newspaper El Mundo after details of his £492million contract were published.

    The Catalan club denies any involvement in the leaking of the documentation, which stated that the Argentine's contract is worth 555,237,619 euros up to 30 June, 2021.

    This works out to roughly £123m per season.

    Barcelona released a statement which read: "FC Barcelona categorically denies any responsibility for the publication of this document, and will take appropriate legal action against the newspaper El Mundo, for any damage that may be caused as a result of this publication.

    "FC Barcelona expresses its absolute support for Lionel Messi, especially in the face of any attempt to discredit his image, and to damage his relationship with the entity where he has worked to become the best player in the world and in football history."

    Messi's contract expires this summer meaning he could finally leave Barcelona after spending all of his career with the club.

    SALIBA HURT BY ARSENAL TREATMENT

    Arsenal defender William Saliba has slammed how the club have treated him since he joined the Premier League club.

    After being signed for £27million he was immediately loaned back to St Etienne and has now been farmed out again to Nice until the end of the season.

    But his latest comments do not seem to have left the door open for a return to the Emirates Stadium.

    The 19-year-old told TV station TF1 : “I really, really, really didn’t think that I would be transferred for €30m.

    “To think that I would arrive [at Arsenal], where people were expecting a lot from me, the fans excited about me and you find yourself in the reserves, play zero – nothing in the Europa League or the [Premier] League.

    “I was in the squad once in the League Cup. It hurt me, it affected me.

    “I don’t think I left too early. When you feel ready you have to go. These things happen. I believe in myself.”

    DEAL DONE!

    Bayern Leverkusen have completed the signing of Demarai Gray from Leicester City for around £3m.

    The England youth international had just six months remaining on his contract at King Power Stadium, having fallen out of favour with boss Brendan Rodgers.

    Gray, 24, has signed an 18 month deal with the Bundesliga side, and could face his former club in the latter stages of the Europa League this season.

    The winger joined the Foxes from Birmingham City in January 2016, subsequently playing a cameo role in their Premier League title win under Claudio Ranieri.

    He went on to make 169 appearances in total for Leicester, although managed only two outings this season.

    NOT LEAVING IN A HARRY

    Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly put an £89million price tag on Harry Kane, according to The Daily Express.

    It comes after interest from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, who are looking for a striker to fill the boots of Sergio Aguero.

    Spurs fell further adrift of the top of the Premier League after a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Thursday night.

    And with Kane still yet to win a trophy with the Lilywhites, he could be looking for a route out of Spurs this summer.
