Jerome Boateng news

Boateng to Arsenal this month?


Arsenal are reportedly prepared to make an attempt to sign Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng as they seek to cover up the injury absence of Calum Chambers.

The England international sustained a season-ending knee injury last month but that has not necessarily seen the club spend on a suitable replacement in recent weeks.

However, according to The Star, the Gunners are looking at the prospect of adding another centre-back to their ranks and they are prepared to make an approach to sign Boateng from Bayern.

The German’s current deal with Bayern is due to expire at the end of next season and reports indicate that the Bundesliga champions may entertain a temporary exit for the World Cup winner with the option to buy in the summer.

Boateng has struggled to cement a regular spot in the Bayern lineup this term but he has still been able to make 14 appearances in the Bundesliga an Champions League combined.

Arsenal face Chelsea in tomorrow’s Premier League meeting on the road.

Villa sign Drinkwater on loan
Football Transfer Centre


Premier League side Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Danny Drinkwater on a short-term loan agreement from Chelsea.

The England international spent the first half of the season on a temporary deal at Burnley but he struggled for gametime and managed just one appearance in the Premier League.

As a result, the Clarets did not take the option of retaining his services for the second half of the campaign and this has allowed the Villains to acquire the midfielder’s signature on loan for the rest of the season.

 “Danny was a key member of Leicester City‘s title-winning team and has represented England, so he is a vastly experienced player. He will strengthen our squad significantly,” Villains boss Dean Smith told the club’s official website.

Villa are expected to be without goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Wesley for the rest of the campaign. John McGinn is sidelined for the next three months with an ankle problem and Drinkwater should replace the Scot in the club’s midfield.

Drinkwater set for Chelsea return after failed loan stint
Football Transfer Centre


England international Danny Drinkwater is set to return to Chelsea following the conclusion of an unsuccessful loan stint with Premier League side Burnley.

The midfielder made the switch to the Clarets on a six-month loan in August but he shortly picked up an ankle injury after an incident outside a Manchester nightclub.

Since then, Drinkwater was limited to just 59 minutes of gametime in the Premier League and manager Sean Dyche has now confirmed that the midfielder will return to his parent club when his temporary deal expires on Monday.

“He just hasn’t had the pitch-time. Obviously there was a moment in between when we had injuries where he probably would have played, but these things happen in football,” he told via Football.London.

Drinkwater is presently not attracting any interest from Premier League sides and he may have to drop a division to the Championship in the quest for regular playing time.

The former Premier League winner was the subject of interest from Swansea City over the summer and it remains to be seen whether the club are prepared to make a fresh loan approach this month.

Loftus-Cheek could make Chelsea comeback next month


Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has confirmed that he has returned to individual training on grass and he could return to first-team action in the space of one month.

The England international has been sidelined since the final weeks of the previous campaign with an Achilles injury but he appears on course to make his comeback by the end of January.

Speaking to Copa90, Loftus-Cheek confirmed that he has had a couple of setbacks during his recovery from the Achilles problem but he is hopeful of returning to the playing field in just over four weeks’ time.

“It’s alright, it’s been a long journey. Since I done it I’m just grinding it out and I’ve had a few setbacks which is normal when you’ve had a big injury. I’m close now anyway. If everything goes well, I’d say just over a month,” he told.

Loftus-Cheek was initially fancied to return to action by the end of November but a few unexpected setbacks have meant that his recovery has slowed down by a couple of months.

Torreira to Napoli?


Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has reportedly emerged as a target for Italian side Napoli ahead of the winter transfer window.

Torreira has struggled for regular gametime in the Premier League this term and he has managed just four starts with two of them resulting after the recent snub of Granit Xhaka.

According to Calciomercato, the Uruguay international is currently unsettled at the Capital outfit, considering he has yet to adapt to the style of living in England.

It is added that he is eager to make the return to the Serie A and Napoli could potentially compete with AC Milan for his services when the transfer window reopens.

The Gunners snubbed the chance to sell Torreira during the summer transfer window and they could follow the same trend at the turn of the year, particularly with Xhaka tipped to part ways with the club.

Xhaka has not featured for the north London giants since his altercation with the fans during a game against Crystal Palace and reports indicate that he may have already made his final appearance for the club.

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a transfer proposal for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice as they seek to improve their options in the centre of the park.

The England international only signed a long-term deal with the Hammers last year but this has not ceased the speculation regarding his future with the east London side.

According to Goal.com, the Red Devils have identified Rice as the priority target to bolster the midfield and they are prepared to come up with an offer worth £80m to prise him away from the Hammers.

It is added that the Mancunian giants will initially make the move at the turn of the year but they are prepared to wait until next summer, should the Hammers reject a mid-season transfer.

Rice, who has come through the Hammers academy, has racked nearly 85 appearances. He has also cemented his spot as a regular for the Three Lions since March 2019.
