Manchester United’s moves in the January transfer window will be interesting following the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The former striker has replaced Jose Mourinho until the end of the season and could oversee changes next month.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are also expected to make moves when the window opens.

Chelsea remain hopeful of getting Eden Hazard to sign a new deal and fend off interest from Real Madrid.

Howe dismisses Wilson exit talk

Eddie Howe insists Callum Wilson is going nowhere despite links with Chelsea.

"I haven't seen the comments,” Howe said after the clash at Stamford Bridge last night. “First I've heard about it.

"Callum's our player, very focused on us.

"You could see that tonight, gave everything for the team."

Militao move

Manchester United are eyeing a deal for Porto defender Eder Militao, according to the Telegraph.

The Brazil international is seen as a more realistic target than Kalidou Koulibaly.

Militao is rated at £40m and could be the first signing of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reign.

Solskjaer arrived in Manchester yesterday after being named caretaker manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Solskjaer warchest

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have around £50m to spend in the January transfer window.

A centre back and a winger are the positions needing filled and Ed Woodward is already working on deals.

Eder Militao is a target along with Toby Alderweireld, while Douglas Costa is an option on the wing.

Whether Solskjaer would be able to get two players of the required level for £50m remains to be seen.

Inter in for Ozil

Mesut Ozil is on Inter Milan’s radar after another Unai Emery snub.

Ozil was left out of the squad for Arsenal’s defeat to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup last night.

And his future remains uncertain with the Mail reporting that Inter are keen to bring him to Italy.

"I think he’s probably going to go in January. Arsenal have to eat maybe half his wages and Ozil will still go to a good side,” Steve Nicol said.
