Eriksen and Poch to Real Madrid

Spanish giants Real Madrid are considering an audacious swoop for two of Tottenham’s biggest assets.

The Mirror claim Real are interested in pinching midfielder Christian Eriksen on a free transfer when his contract expires in June 2020.

The Dane will be eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs outside of England from January onwards.

But it doesn’t stop there.

The report claims Los Blancos are also weighing up a move for manager Mauricio Pochettino should things not work with Zinedine Zidane at the helm.

Wanted: Moussa Dembele

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is making preparations for Manchester United’s January transfer window.

According to the Daily Mail, United scouts have been keeping a keen eye on Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

The former Fulham forward has been linked to United to replace Romelu Lukaku, who joined Inter Milan in August, and give their Norwegian boss more options upfront.

Dembele, 23, has scored 20 goals in 37 league appearances in his native country since leaving Celtic Park in 2018, including four in five this season.

Neymar contract extension

PSG are supposedly preparing a lucrative new contract for superstar Neymar.

That’s according to French publication Le10 Sport, who claim sporting director Leonardo has already spoken with the Brazilian forward about extending his stay.

The 27-year-old already earns an astronomical £630k per week at the Parc Des Princess.

It’s claimed Neymar’s decision will be influenced by Barcelona’s financial fair play situation and whether or not they can cough up PSG’s £273million valuation.

Sign Koulibaly!

Arsenal should try to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

That’s according to former Gunners midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong, who believes the towering centre-back would make a big impact on Unai Emery’s side.

“I watched the game against Watford and it wasn’t good. Our defence is certainly weaker, when you compare it to Liverpool or Manchester City,” Frimpong told Meta Ratings.

“David Luiz has been making some mistakes, and in my opinion, there’s little difference between Luiz and Mustafi; I would rather see Callum Chambers selected.

“They need to be buying better defenders, like Koulibaly, who can make a big impact on Arsenal’s team.”

West Ham want Mandzukic

West Ham have joined the fight to sign Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic.

Manchester United were close to signing the Croatia international during the summer – but Ed Woodward pulled the plug – thinking £14million was too much to pay for a 33-year-old.

The Juventus striker has offers on the table from Qatar.

However, Tuttosport claim Mandzukic is holding out for offers from England and West Ham could make their interested known in January.
