Transfer News Today: Arsenal To Beat Liverpool To January Signing Of Spanish Star

Gunners To Beat Reds To Dani Boy

Now, what Arsenal are really short of is creative midfielders, right? Well, Arsene Wenger certainly thinks so as he is looking to bring in young Spanish star Dani Ceballos. Liverpool are interested too but the north London club hope the lure of Champions League football will be enough.

Who Is he? The 19-year-old has already played nearly 40 games for his club and wears the number 10 shirt. He helped Spain to the U-19 Euros and has a £7.5m release clause.


Barca Get Foxy

Leicester man Riyad Mahrez has made quite the start to the new season, so much so that Barcelona are pondering a move for the flying winger to replace Pedro in January.

Jumping The Gun A Bit. Sure is. He may well have impressed so far this term but let’s see how he gets on over the next few months before giving him the challenge of breaking the Blaugrana holy triumvate.


Wilson A Wanted Man

With Manchester United bringing in Anthony Martial, James Wilson looks a bit surplus to requirements at Old Trafford. A whole 20 clubs want him and Derby County are heading the list for a loan deal.

Surely A Prem Club Wants Him? That’s definitely the case but United want him to get games and they reckon he’s more likely to get them under Paul Clement’s stewardship.


Nolan Checks In At The Os

Former West Ham captain Kevin Nolan has wound up at League Two Leyton Orient, training with the side in a bid to keep fit. No one has come in for the former Bolton man and he could be tempted to don the boots for the Londoners.

Not A Chance. You’d think not. Kev and his funky chicken would add a dimension to many a Premier League team, but it’s not as if he needs the cash is it?


Gouff To Be Let Loose By Toon

There are a queue of Championship sides lining up to take Yoan Gouffran on loan when the window re-opens on Wednesday. The Frenchman has been somewhat left behind by the McLaren revolution at St James’ Park. 

Great Business For A Second Tier Club. Gouffran has shown flashes of what he can do but has never been consistent for the Magpies, he’s sure to be a great signing for a Championship team though.
