Man City to offer £45m for Juventus defender

Man City set to offer £45million for Merih Demiral


Manchester City are set to offer £45million for Juventus defender Merih Demiral claims Manchester Evening News.

Cityzens’ defensive problems have been blatant in this season following the injury to their star defender Aymeric Laporte.

Pep Guardiola is currently missing the right personnel in the back-line and has now reportedly urged City to make an offer for Demiral.

The Turkish centre-back has been gaining interest recently from England, as clubs like Leicester City and Arsenal have all asked about his availability. Both the clubs have had an offer rejected last week.

Despite being a bench-warmer at the start of this season, Demiral has slowly gained the faith of Maurizio Sarri, and also managed to supersede Matthijs de Ligt with his impressive displays. The 21-year-old was signed from Sassuolo in the summer.

Cityzens are also said to be interested in Demiral’s compatriot and the Foxes centre-back Caglar Soyuncu.

Guardiola’s men managed to beat Manchester City in the Carabao Cup’s third-round game. They will face Aston Villa in the weekend’s Premier League fixture.

Football Transfer Centre


According to Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are keeping close tabs on Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell, who is also said to be on the transfer radar of Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham.

The 21-year-old is one of the exciting talents in Premier League at the moment, having scored against Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City in this season.

The England U-21 star has bagged a total of 6 goals and 2 assists in 21 outings this season for the Canaries, who are currently in the relegation zone.

Cantwell can act as a traditional No.10 as well as a central or wide midfielder.

The Reds are also in talks with their midfielder Gini Wijnaldum regarding a contract extension, whilst they have also signed Takumi Minamino from Salzburg. The Japanese prospect made his debut in the FA Cup win against Everton.

The Merseyside club already boast a sturdy line-up in the midfield, and now they are looking to add Cantwell to the squad.

The Reds are looking robust in Premier League this season, as they are yet to face a defeat in the league.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are well clear of Leicester City in the League table and will face Spurs this Saturday.

Ben Chilwell news

Leicester won’t sell Chilwell in January
Football Transfer Centre


Chelsea will reportedly be unable to convince Leicester City to sanction the sale of Ben Chilwell during the upcoming transfer window.

The west Londoners won their appeal against the FIFA-imposed transfer ban last month and they are now expected to spend on new signings next month.

Chilwell has been one of the players, who has been constantly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge but Football London claims that the club’s prospects of signing the left-back are ‘infinitesimal’.

The England international has contributed one goal and three assists for the Foxes this term but of late, he has struggled against the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool in back-to-back games.

His present deal with the east Midlands outfit only expires in the summer of 2024 and the Foxes are in a strong position to keep hold of his services for the January transfer window.

Chelsea are scheduled to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in Sunday’s Premier League clash. The Blues go into the game with just two wins from the past seven league games.

Sancho set for Man City return?


Manchester City are reportedly confident of beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the race to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The youngster left the Cityzens for Dortmund in the summer of 2017 after manager Pep Guardiola failed to guarantee him playing time with the first-team.

Sancho has since made excellent progress with the Bundesliga outfit and he is now regarded as one of the most sought-after forwards in European football.

Of late, Frank Lampard‘s side have been fancied to make a club-record bid for the teenager but The Sun claims that the Cityzens are confident of securing a reunion with their former graduate.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has clearly stated that the club won’t entertain any mid-season deals for the attacker and the Premier League champions will have to wait until the summer to make a proposal.

Sancho has amassed a stunning tally of 25 goals and 35 assists in just 77 appearances for Dortmund. The England international is currently valued in excess of £100m.

Ben Chilwell news

Foxes won’t sell Chilwell in January


Leicester City will reportedly turn down the option to sell defender Ben Chilwell, should the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United make an approach.

The England international has been in stunning form for club and country this term and he recently bagged three assists for the Three Lions in a Euro 2020 qualifier.

As a result, there has been much speculation over his next challenge but Standard Sport claims that the Foxes have no intention to sanction the player’s sale in the New Year.

United have relied on Ashley Young and Brandon Williams on the left side of the defence this term with Luke Shaw struggling with muscular injury concerns.

As such, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to recruit another left-sided defender with experience and Chilwell perfect fits the club’s requirements for the long-term.

Elsewhere, Marcos Alonso and Emerson has remained inconsistent for the Blues despite their strong start to the campaign and Frank Lampard is open to working with Chilwell.

Chilwell’s current deal with the Foxes expires only in the summer of 2024 and the club are in a strong position to decline bids in the next few transfer windows.

Christian Pulisic news

Pulisic in doubt for Man City clash


Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic is reportedly a major doubt for the Premier League game against Manchester City as he has yet to recover from a hip problem.

The USA international sustained the injury during the 2-0 league win over Crystal Palace before the international break and that saw him withdraw from the national team squad for the Nations League games.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old has not recovered from the injury setback and he is now facing a race against time as he looks to prove his fitness for the Cityzens clash.

Pulisic has been in fascinating form over the past month and he has been the standout performer for the Blues in the Premier League in the previous three matches where he has scored five goals.

In his probable absence, Callum Hudson-Odoi could feature on the left side of the attack but the England international needs to up his game, having struggled for form with club and country of late.

Non-league striker destined for Premier League side?
Football Transfer Centre


Leicester City and Watford are both monitoring the progress of 22-year-old striker Ronald Sobowale, who currently plays for non-league club the Walton Casuals. According to a report in the Daily Mail, scouts have been deployed to check up on Sobowale’s recent progress.

The striker is currently on a trial with Middlesbrough but it is the Premier League that the player could end up, having already been in discussions with Watford and Leicester City representatives.  The striker hopes to follow the success of Jamie Vardy, who too came through the ranks outside of England’s top divisions. 

Interestingly, Sobowale is the cousin of Austria and Bayern Munich legend David Alaba and has been prolific in front of goal for his team so far this season.

With Leicester City seeking a potential backup for Jamie Vardy, the cut-price 22-year-old could be available for just £200,000 and thus would not break the bank for the Foxes.

Sobowale had been linked with a transfer to Sheffield Wednesday just last season, but a deal failed to materialise.
