Newcastle are being linked with two centre-backs, a midfielder, a winger and a striker, while Leeds want to strengthen their engine room…
UNITED, TOON, SPURS GET DEMBELE UPDATE
Barcelona apparently gave Ousmane Dembele a deadline of New Year’s Eve to decide whether or not he intended to renew his contract at the Nou Camp. They probably have their answer…
Mundo Deportivo says Dembele has decided that he needs a ‘change of scenery’ to resurrect his career.
Which will be sweet music to the ears of Manchester United, Newcastle and Tottenham. Though it is expected that Premier League trio will face competition from elsewhere for the 24-year-old.
NEWCASTLE WANT BURNLEY PAIR
Dembele is just one of a number of players being linked with Newcastle this morning…
Not content with having beaten Burnley on Saturday, the Magpies also want to take two of their centre-backs next month.
The Mirror says the Toon are willing to double the salaries of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski to tempt them to switch sides in the relegation fight.
MAGPIES TARGET STOKE STRIKER
The Sun, though, reckons that Eddie Howe will target a striker as his first signing.
Newcastle are said to be willing to fork out £20million to sign Tyrese Campbell from Stoke.
The 21-year-old son of former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin has scored two goals in eight appearances upon his return from injury, with Howe apparently having tracked the forward since his reign at Bournemouth.
ARSENAL IN RACE FOR RABIOT
Newcastle are also among the clubs eyeing up a potential move for France midfielder Adrien Rabiot. But they could have competition from Arsenal…
Rabiot is one of a number of stars Juventus are willing to cash in on as they look to gather funds for their own squad strengthening.
Tuttomercatoweb claims Arsenal are firmly in the hunt for the 24-year-old.
LEEDS KEEN TO BORROW BARKLEY OR RAMSEY
Juve are also looking to shift Aaron Ramsey off their books and Leeds could be willing to take the Wales midfielder.
Calciomercato says United are the latest club to express an interest in the former Arsenal star. But Leeds can only propose a loan deal, whereas Everton and Newcastle are said to be willing to pay cash.
Leeds are also credited by the Daily Mail with an interest in Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley.
