Transfer News Today: Man United & Liverpool Tussle Over Top European Striker As Leicester Get £10m Man


Red Devils, Liverpool and Hammers Battling For Striker

Michy Batshuayi has been the bright spark in what otherwise has been a pretty disappointing season for Marseille. The Belgium international is second only to Zlatan in the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts, finding the net on 12 occasions.

That form hasn’t gone unnoticed with Man United and Liverpool both interested but it seems West Ham have tabled a £20m bid for the forward with a view to a summer move.

That could spark both north-west clubs into life as they look to secure vital striking reinforcements for the remainder of the campaign.

Man United are 2.62 to finish in the top four

 

Remy Set To Leave Bridge For Title Pursuit

Loic Remy has become something of an afterthought at Chelsea. The French international is a wonderful striker, as he proved at both Newcastle and QPR in the top-flight.

It will come as a great relief then that league leaders Leicester City are about to stump up £10m to secure his services, in the hope he can form a lethal partnership with Jamie Vardy.

Remy’s pace and power thrown into the Foxes’ mix could allow them to do the impossible and win the Premier League.

Leicester City are 9.00 to win the Premier League

 

Gunners Bid Shot Down But Wenger Hopeful Of Making A Deal

Arsenal have been sniffing round midfield reinforcements all January, and while that may be with a view to adding in the summer, one that looks like a go-er is a potential deal for Brazilian Jorginho.

The Napoli midfield general has been impressive since arriving in Naples in 2014 and is something of an unsung hero in Serie A. At 24 he is the right age for a Wenger signing and would add some steel and depth to a midfield that is set to lose Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta in the summer.

Arsenal have seen an initial bid rejected but there has been encouragement from Napoli over the idea of negotiations. This may not happen before the window closes but it’s one to keep an eye on.

Arsenal are 2.85 to win the Premier League
