KYLIAN MBAPPE has told PSG he ‘wants to leave’, and is eyeing a spectacular move to the Premier League.
Meanwhile Rodrigo de Paul has confirmed in a tweet that he wants to join Leeds.
West Ham are ready to offer Arsenal a stunning £5million rental deal for centre-back Rob Holding.
Boss David Moyes wants a new defender and co-owner David Sullivan is willing to pay the cash for a season-long loan.
Holding was in the Arsenal side for the opening game at Fulham but he could still be allowed out once the full squad is available.
Newcastle United tried for Holding before talks broke down but the Hammers plan to put money on the table that will top their proposal.
The offer would cover Holding’s wages and add a premium to make it a lucrative offer to their London rivals.
Roma have reached an agreement with Napoli to sign striker Arkadiusz Milik.
According to FabrizioRomano, the Serie A side will pay £23m plus add ons included.
But Roma are yet to agree personal terms with Milik.
If he decides to join, Edin Dzeko will be sold to Juventus.
It is claimed Dzeko has always been Juve’s No1 target as they look to bring in a forward this window.
Rodrigo de Paul is ready to sign for Leeds United – and confirmed it in a deleted tweet.
The Premier League newbies are negating with Udinese, who want around £35m.
RUN WITH IT
Arsenal are in talks to sign Icelandic keeper Runar Alex Runarsson, according to reports.
Boss Mikel Arteta wants the £1.5million-rated stopper as a replacement for Emiliano Martinez.
The Argentine has joined league rivals Aston Villa.
According to the Telegraph, Arsenal have opened talks with Ligue 1 side Dijon where Runarsson has spent the last two seasons.
The 25-year-old has five caps for Iceland and was also part of their 2018 World Cup squad.
Arsenal’s goalkeeping coach, Inaki Cana, knows Runarsson well having worked with him at his previous club Nordsjaelland.
Man Utd are weighing up a move for Valencia’s Uros Racic.
The Serbian central midfielder has a £92million release clause in his contract.
But with Valencia struggling with a financial crisis, a fee of around £28m might be enough to secure Racic’s services.
Racic is a box-to-box player – around 6ft 4ins and powerfully built.
He is renowned for his workrate and defensive power but also has good footwork and can shoot with either foot.
Aged just 22, he has failed to settle in Valencia after joining the La Liga outfit from Red Star.
FRESH RAN WATER
Danny Drinkwater could land a shock reunion with Claudio Ranieri at Sampdoria.
The midfielder’s career has fallen apart amid personal problems since joining Chelsea in 2017, a year after winning the Premier League under Ranieri at Leicester.
And Italy’s Il Secolo XIX newspaper suggest an intermediary has asked Sampdoria if they want to consider the three-cap ex-England ace, 30.
Meanwhile, Drinkwater has opened up on his incredible saga of the past two years, including headbutting a team-mate, being attacked in a club and drink-driving.
A sports psychologist is helping the Chelsea outcast as he battles back from playing just six times on loan for Burnley and Aston Villa last season.
Man Utd are ‘very close’ to making their first formal bid for Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.
According to thepeoplesperson, talks between the two clubs have intensified over the last day.
Real loaned the 23-year-old to Sevilla last season, but he is not returning there this season.
Los Blancos have quoted £23million for United to land the left-back.
