Dembele wants Premier League move
Football Transfer Centre

French striker Moussa Dembele is reportedly open to making the return to English football amid the speculated interest from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old has been with Les Gones since the summer of 2018 and he has made a good impact with 26 goals across all competitions.

According to Football Insider, the former Fulham youngster is contemplating his options for the future and he would welcome a second stint in England.

Dembele has already netted six goals during the current campaign but there have been many occasions where he has been called upon off the bench.

His situation could change with Rudi Garcia recently taking charge at Les Gones but he nonetheless appears keen on pursuing a bigger challenge.

United have been linked with a move for Dembele since the summer but they may have to wait until the end of the season to land his services.

Apart from the Red Devils, Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in the past but it is unclear whether they will make a future transfer approach.

Manchester United to make £70m bid for Premier League midfielder?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer news

Rice wanted by the Red Devils in January

Manchester United are reportedly planning a £70m bid for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side were linked with the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Sean Longstaff during the summer transfer window but they failed to pursue a single midfielder before the deadline.

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils are likely to go on a mid-season spending spree following their slow beginning to the campaign which sees them in the 12th spot.

It is added that a central midfielder remains one of their prime priorities and Rice has been earmarked as the main target ahead of the winter transfer window.

Rice was previously valued at around £50m but reports suggest that the Red Devils may need to offer at least £70m in order to tempt the Hammers into a mid-season sale.

Rice has not missed a single minute of the Hammers’ Premier League campaign this term and he has also emerged into a key performer for the England national side.

Wenger: expected to one day return to football management

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he has received multiple offers from Premier League sides, but his love of the Gunners has prevented him so far making a move to another English club. Wenger has also revealed he hopes to one day return to football, but remains patient for the time being.

Wenger was replaced by Unai Emery in 2018 after a long search to find a successor for the Frenchman. The move came as a surprise for many, and Arsene Wenger admits that he misses the day to day toil of Premier League management.

“I’m an Arsenal man and after that I’m a professional. I can’t stop working,” said Wenger.

“I decided to move out of the Premier League because I am too linked with Arsenal. I had opportunities to work in England but I turned them down.

“I don’t want to tell you [which clubs] because there are people in charge and it would unfair to them.

“The hunger to play football, win games, I play charity games still. The hunger is completely there, I don’t think you lose the desire to win and that bitterness when you lose a football game.”

Sule: rejected England move in favour of Bayern
Football Transfer Centre

Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule has revealed that he had an option to move to England and sign for either Tottenham or Manchester United prior to moving to the Bavarian side. Sule arrived in Munich from Bundesliga rivals Hoffenheim in a 25 million euro transfer deal in 2017.

Instead, Sule opted to stay in his home country and has now gone on to represent the German full national team. Many consider Sule to be one of the best centre-backs in the world.

“It was a thought to go to the Premier League [in 2017],” the 24-year-old revealed.

“This is one of the leagues in which I really want to play. At the time, however, I saw the change to Munich as the best step. And, as you can see, I am very happy at Bayern.

“Not only because I got my way, but also because the fans and all the staff are great.”

Man Utd reportedly were very close to securing a deal to sign Sule back in 2017, with a transfer fee of 20 million euros agreed between the Old Trafford outfit and Sule’s then club Hoffenheim.

Henderson praises young Chelsea pair
Football Transfer Centre

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has heaped praise on young Chelsea duo Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount ahead of the Premier League meeting between the sides.

Abraham and Mount have been regular starters for the Blues since the beginning of the campaign and they have already scored 10 of the 11 goals in the Premier League.

Speaking on Sky Sports‘ Soccer Saturday, Henderson appreciated the progress of the young Blues duo, who have contributed hugely towards the club’s proceedings in the early part of the season.

He told: “They’ve got young kids but they’re top players, and certainly will be in the future. They’ve got huge potential with the likes of Mason [Mount] already training for England, I can see he’s got the right mentality to play football.

“Technically he’s very good. Everyone can see that he’s hungry to be a very good player and is a very exciting prospect. He’s started the season very well along with Tammy [Abraham].”

Mount has contributed three goals for the Blues this season. In comparison, Abraham has fared much better with seven goals which have all come from the past three league games.

Mount is currently a major doubt for the Reds game with an ankle problem picked up during the midweek Champions League clash against Valencia and a late fitness test may determine his involvement.

Paul Merson sends warning to Premier League giants

Merson says Leicester, Everton may make top four push

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has said that the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United could face competition from Leicester City and Everton in the race for the top four this season.

The Foxes have made a bright start to the current campaign with an unbeaten run and they are presently third on the table with eight points on the board.

On the other hand, the Toffees have already suffered a loss at the hands of Aston Villa, but they are just one point off the Foxes after the opening four games of the season.

Speaking to The Star, Merson said that there is no ‘outstanding team’ after Manchester City and Liverpool and the race for the final two Champions League positions remain very open.

He added that both the Foxes and the Toffees are in a much better shape when compared to the previous campaign and they could provide competition for the Champions League places.

“Leicester are riding partly because Jamie Vardy doesn’t play for England any more and they could do something special this year. Everton have a chance too if they can get themselves going. Getting beat by Villa was a blessing in disguise. I think it woke a few players up,” he said.

Leicester return from the international break with an away game at Manchester United. Everton, meanwhile, entertain Bournemouth at Goodison Park next weekend.

Coutinho turned down Spurs on deadline day
Football Transfer Centre

Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho is understood to have rejected the option to join Tottenham Hotspur prior to the Premier League transfer deadline. The Brazil international was widely fancied to return to the English top-flight before the 5pm deadline on Thursday and he was offered to the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

According to AS, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino had sought to lure Coutinho back to England and he made a personal one-on-one phone call to the 27-year-old.

However, the Brazilian decided to snub advances from his former Espanyol head coach, considering he wanted to remain loyal to Jurgen Klopp‘s side by not signing with a Premier League rival.

Coutinho has seemingly fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou following the big-money purchase of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

Still, he continues to remain optimistic about his chances of succeeding with the Blaugrana and appears set to fight for his position rather than pursuing a move to another elite European outfit.
