What the papers say
Chelsea are keen on Everton forward Anthony Gordon, 21, and his midfielder team-mate Amadou Onana, 21, as the Stamford Bridge club gear up for a “frantic end to the January transfer window”, The Daily Telegraph reports. Also on The Blues’ radar is 19-year-old Lyon right-back Malo Gusto as the Premier League club intensify their search for new players.
The same newspaper says Brighton are in talks to sign Ukraine centre-back Mykola Matviyenko from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal that could be worth up to £20million. The 26-year-old is reportedly hoping to move to the Premier League and reunite with Roberto De Zerbi, his former coach.
And according to the Daily Mirror, Crystal Palace part-owners David Blitzer and Joshua Harris are exploring selling their stakes and investing in Manchester United – a move that would allow the Glazer family to stay in control of the Old Trafford club.
