Tuesday December 19

Henrikh Mkhitaryan exit

07:00: Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be shipped out of Manchester United in January, reports claim.

After falling out go favour under Jose Mourinho, the Armenian appears to have no long-term future at Old Trafford.

The Independent claim Borussia Dortmund would be keen to take him back.

The report says United will not stand in their way providing a suitable offer is made.

Dortmund have taken back players, who have struggled elsewhere, including former United playmaker Shinji Kagawa.

Arsenal exclusive

06:30: Arsenal are plotting a shock £30million January move for Chelsea misfit David Luiz.

The flamboyant Brazilian defender has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge after a bust up with coach Antonio Conte, with their relationship still not fully healed.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking for reinforcements to his leaky defence in the January transfer window, and Express Sport understands that Luiz, 30, has shot to the top of the list of prospective candidates.

Luiz is also a target for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho but a host of other clubs have been linked with the Brazilian international, including Juventus and Real Madrid.

What appeals to Wenger is that Luiz can play either as a centre back or defensive midfielder, has extensive Premier and Champions League experience and could slot straight into his team.

Chelsea joined in Wilfried Zaha chase

06:00: Manchester City are said to be eyeing a move for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha as a contingency if a deal for Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez falls through.

It was suggested the Blues have been impressed with his form since Roy Hodgson took charge of the Eagles and Antonio Conte is exploring potential options ahead of the January window.

Meanwhile, City are looking to resurrect their interest in Sanchez, who they failed to sign in the summer.

However, according to the Daily Mirror, Pep Guardiola is ready to rival Chelsea for Zaha.

The report says that Sanchez remains his first choice, but could turn to the Palace star if a deal for the Chilean proves to be elusive.

Liverpool Naby Keita blow

05:30: Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool will have to wait for the arrival of Naby Keita. 

The German midfielder, 22, agreed a switch to Anfield over the summer which will go through in July 2018.

There has since been talk that the move may be fast-tracked to January but Klopp has rubbished the suggestion any deal will go through early.

Klopp said: “There is an agreement with the club that he will come in June or July to Liverpool.

“There is nothing else to say about that. We really don’t think about it because of all the things Leipzig have said.”
