Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Inter to battle Juventus for Man Utd's Matic

Allegri tipped to replace Giampaolo at Milan

AC Milan would like to tempt Massimiliano Allegri from his sabbatical if they do part ways with under-fire caoch Marco Giampaolo.

Milan have lost four of their first six Serie A games this year, most recently being outclassed by Fiorentina, and pressure is mounting on the ex-Sampdoria coach.

If he is let go then Calciomercato believes the hierarchy at San Siro would target the former Juventus boss.

AC Milan director Maldini gives Giampaolo backing

AC Milan sporting director Paolo Maldini insists the club will make no knee-jerk reactions in regards to head coach Marco Giampaolo's future.

Pressure is growing on the coach after his side suffered another defeat in Serie A on Sunday and reports in Italy suggest they are considering sacking him.

And while Maldini feels the team are in a dire situation, he believes Giampaolo should be given a chance to turn it all around.

"We chose the coach, we will defend him, it is right to give him some time," he said. "We knew there were some problems that we'd run into, although obviously we didn't expect to lose four of the first six games, but also the quality of the football is unsatisfactory.

"Right now, it might look like a tunnel with no light, but as our coach said, the way out is with hard work."

Celtic & Rangers track Dundee United star

Celtic and Rangers are both monitoring Dundee United star Lawrence Shankland, Daily Record reports.

Both clubs had scouts present at the Scottish Championship side's 6-0 win over Morton, in which Shankland scored a hat-trick.

The 24-year-old just joined United from Ayr in the summer and has already scored 10 goals in 10 appearances this season.

Celta set to sack Escriba

Fran Escriba is on the verge of losing his job as Celta coach, Marca says.

Celta have won just one of their seven La Liga matches this season and sit a place above the relegation zone.

Although his contract runs until 2021, the board are considering letting him go, but could give him one more game to change their mind.

Conte wants Man Utd's Matic at Inter

Midfielder could reunite with ex-Chelsea boss but Juventus also want him

Inter have set their sights on Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic, Calciomercato says.

The midfielder has featured in each of the Red Devils' last three Premier League matches and captained them to victory in their Europa League opener against Astana.

But the 31-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season and Inter are considering swooping in to reunite him with his former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte. But the Nerazzurri could face competition from Juventus, who were linked with him earlier this month.

Juventus want Meunier & Can swap with PSG

Juventus will offer Emre Can to Paris Saint-Germain in exchange for full-back Thomas Meunier in January, according to Tuttosport.

The Serie A side are determined to sign the Belgium international, who will be available for free next summer.

Juve hope to get him in January, instead, and hope offering to send Can to the French capital will be enough to persuade PSG to let Meunier go.

Gattuso set for Genoa talks

Gennaro Gattuso could be on his way back into management with Genoa, Sky Sport in Italy reports.

The Serie A side have reached out to the former AC Milan midfielder and coach in the wake of their 4-0 defeat to Lazio.

A change of coach looks imminent and they are expected to meet with Gattuso when he returns to Italy from a trip to Russia on Monday.
