ARSENAL AGREE CECH DEAL
According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have 'agreed a deal in principle' (whatever that means) to sign Petr Cech from Chelsea.
The 32-year-old is reportedly growing frustrated at playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois, and was heavily linked with a move to Monaco in the summer.
'Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is eager to strengthen his options between the sticks in January, and is allegedly willing to offer Chelsea £7m to acquire Cech's services,' report the Star.
'It's believed Wenger has already held talks with the Blues, and according to some reports, has agreed a deal to sign the veteran goalkeeper in January.'
This sounds like weapons-grade bulls**t to us.
UNITED STILL CHASING HUMMELS
Despite Ed Woodward seemingly ruling out any new arrivals at Man United in January, Louis van Gaal remains keen on signing Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels.
It's thought the 25-year-old would cost a British record fee for a defender, but that apparently hasn't deterred United.
'Dortmund may sell reluctantly, believing it would give them the best price for one of their prize assets,' report the Guardian.
'Hummels will have only two years left on his contract next summer. United will try to prise him away early by offering what could well be more than the £32m paid by Manchester City to Porto for Eliaquim Mangala.'
ORIGI RECALL TO COST LIVERPOOL
According to the Daily Mirror, Liverpool are desperate to bring Divock Origi to Anfield in January, but will have to stump up £5m to cut short the striker's loan at Lille.
With Daniel Sturridge ruled out until the new year and Mario Balotelli struggling for form, Origi's arrival could help the Reds improve their attacking fortunes.
"We believe Divock Origi will be world class," said Rodgers recently. "He has everything: the speed, the profile and he could play for Liverpool now."
Origi last scored for Lille on October 2.
