Gossip Column: De Vrij, Jorginho, Shaw, Bertrand, Ghoulam, Emre Can, Alexis


Friday, 3rd November 2017

Stefan de Vrij remains on Liverpool’s shortlist as Lazio try to convince the centre-back to sign a new deal with the Serie A club.  The Dutch international is set to hold contract talks this week, with Juventus also monitoring the situation.

Arsenal are preparing a bid for Napoli midfield star – and former Italy international – Jorginho. The Gunners will have to put up a fight if they want to acquire the playmaker, however, as his contract at the Stadio San Paolo runs until 2020 and he is an integral part of the team’s midfield on a holding role behind Marek Hamsik.

Luke Shaw‘s difficult spell at Manchester United could be close to an end, as Southampton are keen to welcome the left-back on a season-long deal once the January transfer window opens.

Pep Guardiola wants to strengthen the left-back position at Manchester City following the injury of Benjamin Mendy, and has identified two targets in Ryan Bertrand and Faouzi Ghoulam, although the latter’s chances to move away from Napoli took a massive blow following the injury he sustained this week during the UEFA Champions League.

Bayern Munich are set to make a move for Alexis Sanchez during the January transfer window, as the Bundesliga giants believe they can lure the Chilean star away from the Emirates Stadium at a lower price considering his contract runs out in June next year.
