Come and get me
Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel has alerted Manchester United by claiming “he’s always liked them since I was young”.
But that doesn’t mean anything, does it? Probably not. Most players in the world would like to play for Manchester United, it doesn’t mean it’s likely to happen any time soon. Witsel is contracted by Zenit and that is likely to remain the case, certainly this month.
Paying the penalty?
Everton’s penalty villain Kevin Mirallas looks increasingly likely to leave the club this month – with Spurs closing in.
Is Mirallas public enemy number one now? Not exactly, because he was already strongly linked with a move before his penalty nightmare against West Brom on Monday, but that didn’t help. Spurs want to add Mirallas to their ranks and have offered Aaron Lennon as part of a deal that would see the Belgian join compatriots Moussa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen and Nacer Chadli at the club.

Juan more for Jose
Chelsea are lining up Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado, who is keen to move to the Premier League.
Do Chelsea have to sell first? Yes, they want to offload Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah first, who have attracted interest from Wolfsburg and Besiktas respectively. In order to comply with financial fair play, Chelsea would be free to spend the £30-£40m they hope to get for Schurrle and Salah on the Colombia star.
Arsenal have completed the signing of Polish 17-year-old Krystian Bielik.
Good deal? Billed as a wonderkid, Bielik already arrives at Arsenal with a reputation having impressed at Legia Warsaw. Bielik claims working with Arsene Wenger is the best move for his development, although Arsenal fans will probably have to wait a while before catching a glimpse of a player they’ve paid £2.4million for.
