Brendan Rodgers not interested

Brendan Rodgers has reiterated his desire to remain as Leicester boss amid continued links with the vacant managerial post at Arsenal.

Since Unai Emery was sacked by the Gunners last week, Rodgers has persistently been linked with the job at the Emirates Stadium despite affirming his commitment to the Foxes on several occasions.

"I'm staying at Leicester. I'm not interested (in Arsenal), I have said that," Rodgers said.

"I am very happy, so I've no need to look elsewhere. And I think logic would tell you - and I know that sometimes in your world it's not always logical this gossip and speculation - but why would I want to leave Leicester City at this moment in time?”

Mauricio Pochettino latest

Mauricio Pochettino is open to a Premier League return.

The Argentine, who led Spurs to the Champions League final last season, was dismissed after a poor run of results across all competitions this season and replaced by Jose Mourinho who has since guided the team to three wins in as many games.

Pochettino has since been linked with the vacant job at Spurs' bitter north London rivals Arsenal, as well as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

"There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on," Pochettino told Fox Sports in Argentina.

Transfer battle

Manchester United are planning a move for Juventus defender Merih Demiral.

That’s according to Italian publication Calciomercato, who claim Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could submit a January offer.

Demiral, 21, has managed just one appearance for Juventus in all competitions this season and looks surplus to requirements under Maurizio Sarri.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici recently confirmed that the club had rejected an approach from United over the summer.

"He is our player who has had the most deals on the market, I don't imagine how many. The Turk was requested by Milan but was also approached by Manchester United," Paratici told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Wanted: Dejan Kulusevski

Manchester United are locked in a three-way battle to sign Atalanta star Dejan Kulusevski.

Kulusevski, 19, is enjoying a profitable loan spell with Parma - netting three goals and providing five assists in 14 appearances.

His performances have earned him plaudits and attention from a number of European heavyweights including Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham.

The trio were supposedly in attendance to watch the £40million-rated Sweden international during Sunday’s 1-0 defeat against AC Milan.

Liverpool are Jadon Sancho favourites

Liverpool are favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

That’s according to Norway legend Jan Aage Fjortoft, who claims the England international wants to leave in January.

"From a very good source in Germany: Klopp and Liverpool favourite to get Dortmund-player Sancho. Sancho wants to leave the club already in January,” Fjortoft tweeted.

Sancho, who is valued at £100million, has Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United all chasing his services.

Barcelona Julian Weigl bid

Barcelona are considering a bid for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl.

The Daily Mail claim manager Ernesto Valverde is desperate to sign the 24-year-old to boost his midfield options.

The defensive midfielder has featured in 15 matches across all competitions this season and could be viewed as a direct replacement for Arturo Vidal, who is believed to have held talks with Manchester United.

Declan Rice and Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are hopeful of bringing in Jadon Sancho and Declan Rice when the transfer window reopens in January, reports say.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job at Manchester United is safe for now, with Ed Woodward reluctant to sack the Norwegian despite his well-publicised admiration for Mauricio Pochettino.

And the Red Devils are set to attack the January transfer window as they aim to turn their woeful season around.

And Goal say they’re hopeful of bringing in Sancho and Rice when the transfer window reopens in January.

A move for Erling Haaland has been mooted but that’s likelier to happen at the end of the season.
Weigl would reportedly cost £21million.
