Transfer Gossip: Arsenal and United target Dortmund star

With the January window on the horizon, there’s plenty brewing in the transfer market. All the latest deals and potential deals can be found here.

TOP STORY: United and Arsenal monitor Reus

Manchester United and Arsenal are considering a move for Marco Reus , reports Bild, with the Borussia Dortmund star’s contract set to expire in 2019.

The 28-year-old has been forced to endure a crippling run of injuries to damage his prime years as a winger and with his current contract predicament, a cut-price sale has emerged as a possibility.

The Germany international has seen his World Cup 2014 and Euro 2016 dreams wrecked by injuries and has failed to appear at all under Peter Bosz this campaign.

A change of scenery could help Reus refocus and maximise the last remaining years where he can marry exceptional touch and skill with speed and penetration in the final third.

Coutinho and Klopp relationship broken

Fresh off Tuesday’s rumour that Liverpool are now willing to sell Philippe Coutinho , Sport reports that the relationship between the
Selecao star and Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is broken beyond repair.

The former Inter starlet has not forgiven Klopp for standing in his way from leaving Anfield for Barcelona this summer, the report continues.

One shocking revelation is that Klopp vowed to walk himself, before the Champions League qualifier with Hoffenheim, if Liverpool owners FSG sold Coutinho.

The player was thought to be angered and that the reported back complaint was invented to provide some time for tensions to cool down.

Whether Klopp can extract the very best from Coutinho on a regular basis remains to be seen as the former Dortmund boss now fights to avoid the Reds’ season spiralling out of control.

Juventus eye Everton star

Everton’s Henry Onyekuru is being tracked by Juventus, reports Calciomercato, despite the Nigerian having failed to make a Toffees appearance yet.

The 20-year-old, who is currently on loan at Anderlecht, has six goals in nine league appearances for Belgian side — form that no doubt had Ronald Koeman casting an envious eyes at before his dismissal.

The outlet reports that Old Lady are beginning their hunt for a Gonzalo Higuain replacement, and may look to table an offer for Onyekuru next summer so that he can be the Argentina international’s understudy.

Casillas pushes towards Porto exit

Iker Casillas is being shoved out the door by Porto due to his massive £4.5 million-per-year wages and the FFP implications the Dragoes could face.

The former Real Madrid star could therefore be available at a cut price for someone in January, as the 36-year-old could walk away for free next summer and Porto are keen to save on wages and hopefully recoup a small fee.

Dropped from the starting XI by Porto boss Sergio Conceicao, it would be sad to see to one of Europe’s most decorated players end his career on the bench.
