United & Chelsea in for Mosquito, Moncao want Kompany, Barca back in for Luiz, Arsenal & Liverpool duke it out...
REINA AGREES TO JOIN BARCA
Quick line from the ever-reliable Metro to kick things off (shut up, the transfer window is closed, pickings are slim), who report that Pepe Reina may have played his last game for Liverpool.
Well, they don't really report that, but instead cite rather non-specific 'reports in Spain' that Reina, of course on loan at Napoli this season, has already agreed to join Barcelona next season.
The paper claims: 'Reina still has three years left on his Liverpool contract and was thought to be targeted by Barcelona earlier this year, although a move failed to materialise.
'Current no.1 at the Nou Camp, Victor Valdes, has already stated this will be his last year with the Catalan club, stating he intends to depart when his contract expires next summer, in search of a new challenge.'
SKRTEL ON HIS WAY?
Meanwhile, The Liverpool Echo reports that Mamadou Sakho's arrival could have a knock-on impact on another Liverpool defender.
Oh, actually now we've read it it's a Jan Molby column saying Martin Skrtel might be forced out.
Carry on, nothing to see here.
WENGER MAKING PLANS
No rest for the Gooner transfer people, apparently.
The Daily Mirror reports that Arsene Wenger is already lining-up a couple of players for January, and it seems that Germany is the new France for the Arsenal boss.
After recruiting Mesut Ozil, the Mirror reports that Wenger is looking at strengthening his midfield, and is looking at both Lars Bender and Ilkay Gundogan.
Also: 'Arsenal are also interested in Barcelona right-back Martin Montoya, 22, who is set to be a free agent next summer, and there is still cash to spend for a top striker.'
ARSENAL AFTER REUS
Another quick line about Arsenal from The Daily Telegraph, who report that Arsene Wenger has 'requested a scout report' on Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus.
Ah, actually we can save you a job there Arsene - he's f*cking brilliant.
UNITED PAIR IN DEMAND
Quick couple of lines about some Manchester United youngsters in demand.
The Daily Mirror reports that Birmingham want Jesse Lingard on loan when the window opens next week, while The Daily Mail tells us Blackburn want defender Michael Keane.
There. Consider yourselves informed.
WEST HAM IN FOR MARICA
And just one final rumour.
The Daily Express reports that West Ham, in their hunt for a new striker, could move for free agent Ciprian Marica.
And thus ends this morning's gossip.
