Man Utd talks

Manchester United and Tottenham have reportedly held talks with Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana's entourage.

That's according to De Telegraaf, who claim there have been talks between the clubs and his agent Albert Botines.

Ajax are looking for around £35million before they agree to let him leave the club.

The goalkeeper signed a new deal in March, extending his stay until June 2022.

Kai Havertz transfer hint

Manchester United target Kai Havertz has hinted he's keen to leave the Bundesliga amid interest from Bayern Munich.

"They're probably the biggest club in Germany and there are many players that were very successful at a young age that went there," he told Marca. "Therefore, I get linked with Bayern, but we'll see what happens.

"There are players that want to stay close to their family and others say, 'I want to live in another country'. There's something clear: if you want to be a star in Germany, you can't go wrong with Bayern.

"I think I've picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen. I know the rhythm of these international matches and I'm confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany. For the moment, I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we'll see."

Arsenal's Aubameyang plan

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been promised Gunners chiefs will consider offers which come their way if he wants to leave next summer, reports in Spain claim.

Real Madrid are said to be planning to offer Aubameyang a route away from Arsenal as they seek to add more firepower to their team.

And Spanish outlet ElDesmarque claim Arsenal directors have promised they will seriously consider any bids which are lodged for him should he want out.

It's reported Arsenal would be looking for a fee in the region of £69m (€80m) for the former Borussia Dortmund hotshot.

Real might, though, offer up James Rodriguez in part-exchange for Aubemeyang as Florentino Perez seeks to bolster Los Blancos' frontline.

Arsenal would apparently be receptive to taking Rodriguez off Real's hands having tried to sign the Colombia international this summer.

However, in order to make room in their squad, they would need to find a new landing spot for Mesut Ozil.

Arsene Wenger on Bayern Munich job

Arsene Wenger has confirmed he would be interested in taking the vacant manager's job at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

"I came here to speak about the games and you start very strongly there [with your questions]," Wenger said.

"Of course [I would be interested in Bayern Munich]. Coaching was my whole life until now and everybody who has coached will tell you the same.

"You miss the intensity. There are some things you miss big and some things you don't miss.

"So I enjoyed as well things I don't miss too much.

"But on the other hand football games, winning football games, preparing a team for the game and developing players and get satisfaction, share emotions, is something that you miss. So of course, yes.

"I was responsible at 33 years of age and coached until 69 without interruption at top level. That is 36 years without stopping you know.

"So on the other hand, even if I miss it, to get a little bit out of that pressure for a year was not too bad for me.

"People who know me well say I'm more relaxed - it's true."

Chelsea eyeing Jadon Sancho hijack

It's no secret that Manchester United are interested in signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

But it appears they are not alone, with Chelsea reportedly eyeing a deal.

The Telegraph claim the Blues have firm interest in Sancho, who decided to stay in Germany for another season last summer.

Liverpool have also been linked with a deal for the England international if Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane potentially depart Anfield.

Massimiliano Allegri tipped to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Massimiliano Allegri would be perfect for Manchester United, Marcello Lippi claims.

Lippi told the Daily Mail: "Allegri would be good everywhere and as a great admirer of the English club I would be happy to see him take over.

"Manchester United is the history of English football. There have been dark years but the club is fantastic, from the backroom to the players, everyone can say what it means to play at Old Trafford.

"First of all, I think Solskjaer was an exceptional striker and a good coach. For Allegri, I consider him an exemplary professional who has the style of Juventus in his blood.

"My deep friendship with (Sir Alex) Ferguson allows me to say that he would be the best choice for United."

Chelsea's five-man wishlist

Chelsea have got Wilfried Zaha and Timo Werner on their wanted list as they prepare for a potential January transfer spree.

Express Sport understands Zaha and Werner, of Crystal Palace and RB Leipzig respectively, have long been in Chelsea's sights.

And Stamford Bridge chiefs are set to hand Frank Lampard the cash to go out and sign them if their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is successful.

Chelsea are also eyeing Leicester's Ben Chilwell, Lyon forward Moussa Dembele and Athletico Paranaense midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

Man Utd want three players

Manchester United have Mario Mandzukic, Declan Rice and Kalidou Koulibaly on a list of transfer targets.

The Red Devils are fully aware of the need to strengthen the squad given their problematic season and Goal say they have three players in mind.

But the trio will cost around £210million. West Ham midfielder Rice has been valued around the £80m mark and Napoli's Koulibaly is expected to cost as much as £120m.

Juventus outcast Mandzukic would be available on a cut-price deal, somewhere between just £5m and £10m.

Arsenal message

Arsenal should have signed Gary Cahill in the summer instead of David Luiz, claims former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood.

"It wasn't a hard job to go and find better defenders than what they already had," Sherwood told Premier League Productions.

"An easy job, just go out and do it. Try and patch it up, find something.

"Gary Cahill, he was an obvious choice. We're talking about someone who's a Premier League winner, a leader-type character, and they end up going and getting David Luiz.

"Now, I agree, good value [for] David Luiz, but go and find someone better.

"They needed to do that, they haven't done it, the recruitment's terrible, and at the moment they're getting results that they deserve.

"Wolves deserved that point - they deserved more, actually."
