Paris Saint-Germain plan to lure Anthony Martial back to France
The transfer window might be shut, but don't think the wheeling and dealing won't continue! Check out all the latest deals here.
PSG lurking as Martial shines for United
Anthony Martial might just be the player with the most potential at Manchester United, and the France star shone on Wednesday night against West Ham, so it is no surprise that Paris Saint-Germain are eager to lure him back to Ligue 1, according to the Sun.
Jose Mourinho has been peculiar in the way he has utilised the former Monaco prodigy, though there is little doubting the incredible quality the 20-year-old wide forward possesses.
After the Portuguese dropped Martial against Feyenoord and West Ham, talk spread of a potential sale but the Parisians will surely have to wait a while before United would be so foolish to come to such a decision.
Sissoko interesting Juve, Inter after flopping at Spurs
Labelled a panic buy, Moussa Sissoko has been an unmitigated disaster for Tottenham since signing for £30 million in the summer, which is leading to Juventus and Inter eyeing a bargain, according to the Mirror.
The France international couldn't even make Spurs' squad against Chelsea last weekend and a move to Italy could end his nightmare stay at White Hart Lane.
The former Newcastle midfielder has been unable to muster a goal or an assist in 10 appearances so far, leading many to believe Spurs have made a horrendous mistake and cutting their losses is likely to be their best option.
Everton confident of beating competition for Lookman
Ademola Lookman is one of the finest young talents in English football and the Mail reports that Everton are increasingly confident of making a huge statement by prizing him away from Charlton.
The 19-year-old could move to Goodison Park in January and is fast emerging as a world class talent after netting six goals in 20 games for the Addicks this season.
Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City are also in the hunt with newly installed Charlton boss Karl Robinson sure to be desperate to fend off interest until at least next summer.
Japanese side readying ambitious move for Buffon
Gianluigi Buffon has enjoyed a love story, as the Juventus theme song goes, with the Old Lady, but his time in Turin could be winding down as Gazzetta dello Sport believe manager Massimo Ficcadenti wants to acquire the Azzurri No. 1.
The Italian is in charge of Japanese side Sagan Tosu and is keen on an ambitious move for the 38-year-old custodian.
Another offer to retire in the South of Spain with Levante appears to be on the table, but Buffon, contracted until 2018, wants to play at the J-Stadium for as long as possible in a bid to land a Champions League title.
- Southampton run like a well-oiled machine and are on the verge of a cup final thanks to their off-the-field success in the transfer market.
With speculation suggesting Virgil van Dijk and Jose Fonte could move on soon, the Sun believes Spurs centre-back Kevin Wimmer could be the latest smart purchase in their continuous process of rebuilding.
- Inter are planning a defensive overhaul, with Corriere dello Sport detailing a long list of targets for new manager Stefano Pioli.
Matteo Darmian at Manchester United, Benfica's Victor Lindelof, Silvan Widmer of Udinese and Juventus' Stephan Lichtsteiner are all under consideration.
