    Rice receives transfrer warning

    Former Chelsea and Liverpool ace Joe Cole warned West Ham star Declan Rice to snub a move to Manchester United.

    Cole told BT Sport: "I wouldn’t go if I was Declan Rice, no. I think you run the risk of going there and still not winning trophies.

    "I think if Man City were on the table, you’d go there because in recent years it guarantees you trophies and I think Declan would want that.

    "But for me there’s no reason for him to not stay at West Ham if the progress is still going in that [upward] pattern, but that’s for him and the owners.

    "He needs better players around him at West Ham to go to that next level."

    Rice has also been linked with Chelsea ever since last summer

    Rice transfer boost

    West Ham star Declan Rice has given Manchester United a transfer boost after describing Old Trafford as ‘one of my favourite places to play.’

    Rice, who has also been linked with Chelsea, told Sky Sports after the Hammers’ loss to United: “I was loving it.

    “Every time I come to Old Trafford, I’ve always said it’s one of my favourite places to play.

    “It’s an amazing stadium”

    Jess the one

    Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has confirmed Jesse Lingard is being targeted by Newcastle.

    Rangnick said: "Regarding Jesse, it's the same as quite a few other players, he's a really good player, it's normal at other clubs, Newcastle showed interest in him but I am not the one dealing with that.

    "If you ask me now what will happen in the next 10 days I cannot answer that question, I'm afraid.

    "As I said, it's the question of what does the player want, what other options does he have, does he have the chance to get game time, I cannot answer for him, it has to be done by the players.

    "He's a very good player, a technical player. Here at Manchester United it's not so easy, we have other players who can play in that position and we cannot change from one game to another five or six positions"

    Erl’s court adjourned

    Manchester United have pulled out of the bidding war to sign Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.

    Haaland is leaning towards a summer transfer to Real Madrid and United are ready to turn to other targets, according to ESPN.

    And Red Devils chiefs believe they will not be able to persuade the centre-forward to snub a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

    United have been keeping tabs on the Norway international since his days playing at Red Bull Salzburg

    Jon the move

    Chelsea and Tottenham have shown intense interest for Lille star Jonathan David, who has also been linked with Arsenal, but face competition from Barcelona.

    That is according to TSN, who claim that the Blues, Spurs as well as Barca have all made an official enquiry into David’ immediate future.

    The centre-forward has been linked with some of Europe’s other big hitters, like Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

    However, the Canada international is not looking to leave the French champions in the January transfer window

    How abou that

    Newcastle have joined the January transfer race for Olympiacos ace Pape Abou Cisse, reports SunSport's Kostas Lianos.

    Cisse has been previously linked with Arsenal, Everton, Leicester and Liverpool following a series of standout performances in the Champions League and Europa League for the Piraeus outfit throughout the years.

    But sources have told SunSport that the Magpies have also entered the bidding war after watching the centre-back's impressive displays in the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal.

    The Toon have held talks with the 26-year-old's agent and want to complete the deal during the January transfer window.

    The fee being discussed is in the region of £12million and the Greek champions are said to be open to a potential agreement under those terms

    Arsenal’s Du date

    Arsenal have ‘set a deadline’ for Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic to decide whether he wants to sign with them in a £66million move.

    Vlahovic is under contract with the Viola until next year but is applying pressure on the Serie A outfit to sell by so far refusing to agree to an extension.

    That has led the Gunners to make an offer of £66m and make him their second-highest earner as they try to find a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well as soon-to-be free agents Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.

    But the north Londoners are also growing frustrated by the long-running saga and La Republicca claim they have demanded an answer from the striker by ‘halfway through next week’

    Real Madrid target Bellingham

    Real Madrid are set to rival Manchester United and Liverpool for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham.

    Bellingham has been impressive this season, and also caught the eye in England's run to the final of Euro 2020.

    United and the Reds have previously been linked with an £80million move, and now Real are ready to enter the race, according to Marca.

    Toni Kross and Luka Modric are in the twilight stages of their careers, with Los Blancos now planning for the future.

    Eduardo Camavinga was recruited in the summer, with eyes now on a move for the ex-Birmingham man

    Eden Hazard to Chelsea latest

    Carlo Ancelotti insists Eden Hazard is in his plans as the Real Madrid boss poured cold water on speculation linking his with a Chelsea return this month.

    Hazard, 31, has had a torrid time since his high-profile £130million move to the Bernabeu from the Blues in 2019.

    The winger has been unable to replicate the stunning form that made him one of the Premier League’s most feared forwards amid a raft of muscular injuries in the Spanish capital.

    Those struggles have seen Hazard repeatedly linked with a cut-prize move away from the Bernabeu.

    And Thomas Tuchel's Blues have been said to be lining up a £28million transfer this month, with newly-rich Newcastle also keen.

    Hazard finally scored his first goal of another interrupted season on Thursday with a dramatic extra-time winner against Elche in the Copa Del Rey.

    And Ancelotti seems to hope the former PFA Player of the Year can still come good.

    Asked about Hazard's future, the Italian said: "Hazard is in our plans for the next season, I can confirm."

    Good morning football fans

    Eddie Howe’s hopes of signing a centre-back have been handed a boost as Newcastle’s two main rivals back off in the pursuit of James Tarkowski.

    Eddie Howe wants the powerful Burnley centre-half to join his survival fight and will make an offer that tempts the Clarets to let him follow Chris Wood to the Toon.

    Burnley are willing to take a bid and the Geordies are the only horse in the race as West Ham are now looking elsewhere, while Leicester focus on a short-term loan solution.

    Elsewhere Aaron Ramsey is claimed to be nearing a return to the Premier League.

    Juventus boss Max Allegri confirmed: "Aaron’s not with the team as he’s set to leave the club."

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has also confirmed talks are ongoing on a potential return to the Premier League.

    And SunSport can exclusively report Burnley are in talks over a shock loan move for the former Arsenal man.

    Arsenal are said to be growing tired in their chase of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.

    The Gunners have reportedly ‘set a deadline’ for Vlahovic to decide whether he wants to join them in a £66million deal.

    The Premier League club are growing frustrated by the long-running saga and La Republicca claims they have demanded an answer from the hotshot by ‘halfway through next week’.

    Exclusive – Arsenal bet ‘fix’ probe

    A yellow card given to Arsenal star Granit Xhaka is at the centre of a betting probe.

    The midfielder, 29, was booked for time wasting in the 88th minute of a Prem match against Leeds.

    The FA said that bookmakers had alerted them to suspicious betting patterns around the incident and they will look into the matter. There is no investigation into any player.

    Xhaka was cautioned by referee Andre Marriner for delaying taking a free-kick during the Gunners’ 4-1 win at Leeds on December 18.

    A video circulated online shows Xhaka being urged to take the free-kick by Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and the ref.

    Bookies were alerted after a punter staked £65,000 on him being booked in the game, winning a £250,000 payout.

    A betting source said: “This bet was flagged to all bookmakers, because it was so big and it paid out. The investigation is looking at the bet rather than Xhaka’s behaviour —– it is not unusual for him to be carded at all.”

    Rangnick on for cash bonus

    Manchester United broke into the top four with victory today, and Ralf Rangnick will be hoping they can stay there.

    The German is in interim control of the club until the summer, having taken over from the sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    And if he can keep them in the Champions League places, Rangick will earn a one-off payment of close to £500,000.

    That's according to the Mirror, who report the clause is in his contract, on top of the £180,000-a-week he already earns as a base salary.

    Grealish 'waited in the tunnel'

    Jack Grealish wasn’t prepared to leave his feud with Oriel Romeu out on the field, according to Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

    The Manchester City star is said to have ‘waited in the tunnel’ for his Saints rival after their side’s 1-1 draw.

    The pair clashed during a fiery encounter at St Mary’s that snapped City’s 12-game Premier League winning streak.

    Grealish, 26, reacted angrily to a heavy challenge from the Saints enforcer and sparked a melee with his on-pitch protests.

    But the England international clearly felt he had unfinished business after the final whistle in Saturday’s late kick-off.

    Southampton boss Ralph Hassenhuttl told Sky Sports: ”Grealish was waiting for him (Romeu) in the tunnel because of a few things that happened outside on the pitch.

    "It was not right. But it's not here for the cameras, they spoke about it, everything is good."

    Laporte shows off nasty cut

    Aymeric Laporte has taken to Twitter to show off his war wound from the draw at Southampton.

    Laporte was caught late by a high challenge from Stuart Armstrong, who was booked as a result.

    VAR decided no further action was necessary, despite Laporte's bloody injury.

    Exclusive – Everton name price for Calvert-Lewin

    West Ham want Everton’s England hit man Dominic Calvert-Lewin – but it will cost them a staggering £60MILLION.

    Hammers chief David Moyes has been alerted that Calvert-Lewin could be available as the Toffees try to claw back cash after years of over-spending.

    Moyes would really push the boat out for Calvert-Lewin and has new money at the club to back him in a major bid.

    But the valuation is currently so high that West Ham will not take the plunge. However if that changes this month or in the summer they will be pushing to the head of the queue.

    The Hammers would pay a premium just now or offer a bonus if Calvert Lewin shot them into the Champions League.

    But Everton need to drop their ‘top line’ to make it happen.

    The Merseyside club have also considered selling England keeper Jordan Pickford but are now in talks with him about extending and increasing his contract.

    Exclusive – Cherries chasing Andy Carroll

    Bournemouth are lining up a late move for Andy Carroll if he leaves Reading after the striker scored twice in eight games on a short-term deal with the Royals.

    But his contract ran out last week and the promotion-chasing Cherries are keen to have Carroll as an option for the rest of the season.

    Bournemouth can offer more money in wages than Reading – who are under transfer restrictions.

    And they could also tempt the former Newcastle and Liverpool star with a promotion bonus.

    Carroll, 33, has also been linked with Premier League strugglers Burnley but Clarets chief Shaun Dyche is yet to commit himself.

    Bournemouth boss Scott Parker originally wanted Kieffer Moore from Championship rivals Cardiff.

    But the Wales international’s price tag is high and Carroll would be an ideal alternative.

    Real Madrid ready to rival for Bellingham

    Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly set to rival Manchester United and Liverpool for the signing of Jude Bellingham.

    The 18-year-old has impressed for Borussia Dortmund this season, and also caught the eye in England's run to the final of Euro 2020.

    Man Utd and Liverpool have previously been linked with an £80m move, and now Real are ready to enter the race, according to Marca.

    Toni Kross and Luka Modric are in the twilight stages of their careers, with the club now planning for the future.

    Youngster Eduardo Camavinga was recruited by Los Blancos in the summer, with eyes now on a move for the ex-Birmingham City man.

    Former Gunner linked with Burnley

    Burnley want to take Aaron Ramsey on loan for the rest of the season.

    The former Arsenal midfielder is keen to return to the Premier League after his failed switch to Juventus.

    And the Clarets have been in talks over a temporary switch in the last few weeks.

    Sean Dyche’s strugglers would be able to pay nowhere near Ramsey’s reported £400k-a-week wages.

    But Ramsey, 31, may still consider the move after an initial rejection – with Juventus desperate to get him off their books.

    Exclusive – Tottenham target Toby Savin

    Tottenham have set their sights on young Accrington keeper Toby Savin as a potential future No 1.

    The London giants are in the market for a top prospect to groom for the first team and have been sending spies to watch 20-year-old Savin.

    The former Everton youth made his League One debut last season but has won the race for the jersey in this campaign and is growing up rapidly.

    Southampton were reportedly tracking the Southport-born starlet early in the last campaign.

    And the 6' 4" stopper signed a three-year contract in 2020.

    Spurs' interest in Savin comes a day after current first-choice Hugo Lloris added two years to his own deal, keeping him with Antonio Conte's squad until 2024.

    Oscar in Barcelona talks

    Former Chelsea ace Oscar is thought to be continuing discussions with Barcelona over a potential transfer, according to reports.

    Brazilan news outlets claim the ex-Blue insists negotiations ‘are not over yet’ with the Catalan club reportedly waiting on player departures.

    The former Stamford Bridge midfielder, 30, currently plies his trade in the Chinese Super League following his £60million move to Shanghai Port.

    Oscar is reported to have told Brazilian news site TNT Sports of Barcelona’s interest in bringing him to the Nou Camp.

    The midfielder said: “'I was told about this interest, I guess they're still trying to figure something out.

    “Barca has this issue about registering new signings and they'd still need to sort talks with my club.'

    “From what I’m told, talks with Barcelona are not over yet. The problem is that they’re struggling to register signings… there has to be some departures from Barca.”

    Chelsea in Jonathan David 'enquiry'

    European Champions Chelsea have reportedly made an 'enquiry' for the services of Lille striker Jonathan David.

    The 21-year-old forward has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks.

    But now it's the Gunners' London rivals who are plotting a potential swoop, according to Canadian outlet TSN.

    Both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are struggling for goals as of late.

    David is expected to leave Lille at the end of the season, and has attracted plenty of attention, with Chelsea the latest to register their interest.

    Arteta in line for new deal

    Reports suggest Mikel Arteta is set to be offered a new two-year contract by Arsenal.

    The Mail claim the Spaniard has impressed chiefs at the club and will be rewarded with a new deal.

    An extension is expected to be tabled before the end of the campaign, before his current deal enters its final 12 months.

    Bosses at the club have been impressed by his management, but are also wary of interest from Manchester City.

    Rumours have emerged that City are lining up Arteta to replace Pep Guardiola, when the latter decides to call time on his spell at the Etihad.

    Full time on the South Coast

    The final whistle has gone at St.Mary's as Southampton hold Manchester City to a 1-1 draw.

    Aymeric Laporte equalised for the league leaders in the second half, following Kyle Walker-Peters' excellent opener.

    City are still TWELVE points clear at the top of the table, but have played two games more than Liverpool.

    Pep Guardiola and Co are still firm favourites to secure back-to-back titles, but this result does offer a glimmer of hope to the chasing pack.

    Arsenal closing in on Arthur

    Reports in Italy suggest Arsenal are 'close' to announcing the loan signing of Juventus midfielder.

    According to Tuttosport, the Gunners have given in and accepted an 18-month loan deal for the Brazilian.

    Arsenal are claimed to have just wanted a short-term six month deal, while Juve favoured a longer loan.

    And now that's been agreed, reports suggest negotiations are now ongoing between Arthur's representatives and Arsenal officials.
