AXE TO GRIND
Chelsea have been dealt a blow with youngster Amourricho van Axel Dongen reportedly rejecting their advances to sign a new deal at Ajax.
Dutch journalist Mike Verweij claims Van Axel Dongen was a target for Chelsea this summer after starring for Ajax’s youth team.
But the 15-year-old winger has snubbed interest from Stamford Bridge and instead committed himself to Ajax until 2023.
OH DANNY BOY
Daniel James will stay at Manchester United this summer, according to reports.
The Welshman has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, having not scored in any of his last 30 Premier League appearances.
But according to the MEN, James remains in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans and will continue to fight for his place in the team.
West Ham boss David Moyes is reportedly ready to battle old club Manchester United for Swansea star Joe Rodon.
The Guardian claims Moyes is keen on adding a new centre-back to his squad before deadline day.
He has already failed with THREE bids for Burnley ace James Tarkowski.
And Moyes is now thought to be targeting Wales international Rodon.
MAN U INTEREST IN DEMBELE
Man United have contacted Barcelona over Ousmane Dembele as the Jadon Sancho deal continues to stall, reports say.
Rumours have intensified that the Red Devils may swoop for the winger as Ronald Koeman chops and changes the fallen giants.
Barcelona have put a price of 100 million euros on his head but the Manchester club may also be interested in a loan arrangement, according to the Daily Record.
With Gareth Bale out the picture and Sancho still at Dortmund, Dembele – and his teammate Ansu Fati – are seen as potential options.
HAMMERS IN FOR FOFANA
West Ham have made a bid for Saint-Etienne centre-back Wesley Fofana, it is reported.
The London club have offered €25m (£22.9m) plus €11m (£10.1m) in add-ons, Sky Sports say.
Leicester City are also reportedly interested in the defender, who has told his manager – ex Southampton and Leicester boss Claude Puel – that he wants to play in the Premier League.
AMERICAN GROUP IN TO BUY BURNLEY
BREAKING: An American sports investment company are in talks to sign Burnley.
Reuters report that ALK Capital are interested in buying the Lancashire club.
The news comes after recent reports that other American firms could be interested in fellow Premier League sides like West Ham and Southampton.
Sources told Reuters that talks are at an “advanced stage” and the group would want to take majority ownership and also a direct hands-on role in the running of the club.
RUDIGER READY TO GO
Antonio Rudiger is on the brink of a Chelsea exit after being left out of the squad to play Barnsley tonight, say reports.
The German's place in the team looked uncertain with Chelsea having a bloated list of centre-backs after Thiago Silva's arrival.
Now the Daily Mail claim he could be on the “brink” of leaving Stamford Bridge.
But where he would go and for what price is still unclear.
Lucas Torreira has agreed personal terms with Atletico Madrid but a deal remains some way off, reports say.
The Arsenal midfielder could be on his way to Spain but there remains some stumbling blocs before he can book a plane ticket.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that the two clubs have yet to settle on a fee.
The Spanish club also need to sell Hector Herrera first before they can bring in another, it is believed.
NEL BEFORE HIM
Wolves have released a picture of their new man Nelson Semedo.
The full-back signed earlier today for £36.8m and is expected to make a splash in the Premier League.
DALE FOR SALE
Brighton's Dale Stephens is being chased by Burnley and is close to signing, according to reports.
The Turf Moor club have already been linked with Liverpool's Harry Wilson today and now it appears they're also keen to bolster their midfield.
Sky Sports report that Stephens is in London finalising the paperwork for a move – as his club prepare to play Millwall in the EFL Cup tonight.
It is believed the price for him is £1m potentially rising to £2.5m.
ALLI'S ALL RIGHT
Speculation continues to link Dele Alli away from Spurs amid a reported clash with manager Jose Mourinho, but the midfielder seems to be getting along fine in training.
The Tottenham twitter account is keen to ensure fans that all is good in the camp.
Liverpool are in contact with Burnley over the sale of Harry Wilson, reports say.
The Lancashire club have been short on transfer business this summer but Wilson could help spice up their attack.
According to the Athletic, Wilson – who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth – could be sold to Turf Moor but a price is unknown.
With Diogo Joto in through the Anfield front doors and Ismaila Sarr also courting Liverpool's interest, a place in Liverpool's first team looks further away than ever for the Welshman who may be open to a move.
DIEGO-ING TO LEEDS
BREAKING – Diego Llorente is having his Leeds medical.
The Yorkshire club agreed with Real Sociedad to sign the 27-year-old defender yesterday and the move looks like it's edging closer based on today's news.
Ex-Man United midfielder Darren Fletcher has been warning of Jesse Lingard's future and fears he may want to leave.
The out-of-favour 27-year-old featured in last night's win at Old Trafford but Fletcher is worried Lingard – and his notorious agent – may cause trouble for Old Trafford Chiefs.
Fletcher told Sky Sports: “The alarm bells started ringing for me when he appointed Mino Raiola as his agent.
“Now you don’t appoint Mino Raiola as your agent if you’re looking at staying at a club.
“That suggests to me that he’s looking for a move. He’s not a starter in Manchester United’s strongest team, he’s a squad player now.”
SO CLOSE YET SO SARR
Watford's Ismaila Sarr has yet to make an appearance this season as speculation links him to Liverpool amongst other clubs.
But the Athletic confirms the club is still yet to get a firm offer to prise him away from Vicarage Road.
TELL ME SOME GOOD NEWS
Manchester United are reportedly close to agreeing a deal for Porto defender Alex Telles.
The Red Devils are hoping to provide competition for Luke Shaw with a move for the Brazilian defender.
United recently stepped up their chase for Telles by offering Diogo Dalot plus cash.
However, Porto knocked-back the offer as they have no interest of taking back their former player – who left the club to join United in 2018.
Telles meanwhile has a release clause of £36.7m in his current contract at the Portuguese giants.
KICK-OFF TIME TO BE CHANGED
Liverpool vs Arsenal looks set to be moved from 8.15pm to an 8pm kick-off after new pub lockdown rules would have seen fans miss the end of the game.
The Government announced pubs must now shut at 10pm in a fresh bid to contain the spread of coronavirus.
However, Liverpool's huge game against Arsenal was due to start at 8.15pm – with fans fearing they'd miss the all-important final ten minutes.
The Daily Mail are now claiming the Premier League are set to push the game forward 15 minutes, with an 8pm kick-off now on the cards.
Providing there are no major stoppages for injuries, the game SHOULD now finish at around 9.55pm – just before pubs slam their doors shut.
YES WE KENN
Scott McKenna has signed for Nottingham Forest from Aberdeen for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old centre-back has played 16 times for Scotland and Forest have also not revealed how long he has signed for.
He joins midfielder Harry Arter, who arrived from Bournemouth yesterday on a permanent deal.
𝙈𝙘𝙆𝙚𝙣𝙣𝙖 𝙢𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙍𝙚𝙙𝙨 🔴#NFFC are delighted to announce the signing of Scottish international defender Scott McKenna!
— Nottingham Forest FC (@NFFC) September 23, 2020
Roma are still unwilling to match Manchester United’s £18.4million valuation for Chris Smalling.
But they hope to make one final offer that will be their last-ditch attempt to bring the England defender back to the Stadio Olimpico.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma boss Paulo Fonseca declaring in public that he has been in touch with Smalling, 30, did not go down well at United.
The Serie A club’s first offer of £11m was flatly rejected by United.
HAD A HAND IN IT
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed Petr Cech was influential in the imminent signing of Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
The 28-year-old is set to become the Blues’ seventh summer recruit having completed his medical earlier this week.
Senegal international Mendy is expected to join on a five-year deal, where he will challenge Kepa Arrizabalaga for the No1 spot at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “Petr was important in that because goalkeeper is a very particular position.
“Petr Cech was the best in the world in that position for a long time so he’s obviously had a big say in this situation.
“From my point of view, I lean heavily on him when it comes to goalkeeping today and in the future. So yes, he was very influential.”
NO CASE FOR DEFENCE
Dimitar Berbatov reckons Manchester United need a new defence after their hammering by Crystal Palace.
The former Old Trafford striker told Betfair: “Some will be happy, some won't, even with the retaking of the penalty. It's no excuse for United, the performance just wasn't good, and hopefully it will just be a first-game blip.
“If we just based it on the first game then United are miles off the speed of the other top teams in the league, and so I hope it is just down to it being game one.
“If it becomes a trend, it could be a very long season. I and others have big expectations for United this season.
“They need a centre-half, and probably further recruitment also to be competitive. At the end of the day, if Crystal Palace can score three past you, you are in trouble.
“It can be hard to sign players, maybe the players don't want to come, it is hard to say, but their defence is what they need to work on.”
MASTERS OF THEIR ART
Chile stars Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal have finally united at Inter Milan.
The pair appear to be over the moon at finally being able to play together for a club team after winning two Copa America together for their national side.
Manchester United could miss out on a staggering £111million in matchday income this season if fans are forced to stay away from Old Trafford.
Football fans were dealt a bitter blow on Tuesday after the Government announced they had “paused” plans to allow supporters back into stadiums to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
And they show that the current Premier League teams made a combined £692.5m solely from their home games in 2018-19.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham all raked in over £80m that season from home games.
The Gunners cashed in £96.2m from Emirates matches, while the Reds and Spurs pocketed £84.2m and £81.7m respectively.
Chelsea (£66.6m) and Manchester City (£56m) were the only other two teams to make over £50m from matchday income two seasons ago.
LOAN TO BUY?
Bayern Munich are set to make a loan bid for Callum Hudson-Odoi, according to reports.
The German club are fresh off their Treble win last season and want the Chelsea winger after he was reportedly discussed by the Bayern players themselves.
Hansi Flick's side have found a replacement for Ivan Perisic in Leroy Sane, but also want Hudson-Odoi to bolster their attacking line-up after Philippe Coutinho went back to Barcelona.
Bayern put the chips down for a permanent deal for Hudson-Odoi 18 months ago, when he was struggling to get into the Blues first team under Maurizio Sarri, before he ended up signing a long-term deal at Chelsea.
According to the Telegraph, Munich see the player as a realistic target still after so much work was put into the transfer.
THE FULL NELSON
Wolves have confirmed the signing of Nelson Semedo from Barcelona.
The Midlands club have shared a video of the Portuguese has moved to Molineux on a three-year deal which the club has the option to extend till 2025.
Wolves have paid an initial £27.5million for the 26-year-old right-back, with the deal rising to a potential £29m.
