Gossip Column: Werner, Hazard, Niasse, Carrasco, Manolas, Milenkovic, Rabiot, Kamano


Monday, 7th January 2019

Timo Werner seems set to leave RB Leipzig, but the question is where. Bayern Munich have been linked with a move for the Germany international, but it seems Borussia Dortmund have now joined the race.

He’s not the only player Dortmund might be targeting, however, as they’re also looking at Thorgan Hazard as a potential long-term replacement for Christian Pulisic, who’ll leave the side once the season ends.

Oumar Niasse on his way out of Goodison Park? That could be the case, as Crystal Palace are keen to make a move for the out-of-favour Everton striker.

Could Yannick Carrasco return to Europe? That might be the case as several teams are keen to make a move for the Belgium international who’s currently playing in the Chinese Super League.

Manchester United have set their sights on Kostas Manolas, but the Roma defender’s release clause of “only” £36million activates following the transfer window so there might not be a January move after all.

The Red Devils have a backup plan, however, and it goes by the name of Nikola Milenkovic.

Adrien Rabiot has reportedly agreed to terms with FC Barcelona, but a January move seems highly unlikely at the moment.

AS Monaco are desperate to bolster their attacking depth and have made a €15million bid for Bordeaux‘s Francois Kamano. Girondins want to receive at least €20M, though.
