Brendan Rodgers is one of the candidates to take over at Manchester United should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have to leave. If Rodgers switch clubs, Frank Lampard will be interested in a Leicester job.
Philippe Coutinho is one of several people linked with Newcastle recently, but according to Sport, the Brazilians have no plans to leave Barcelona immediately. The Catalans have recently signed Xavi as their new manager, who will be interested in giving Coutinho a chance to convince them to stay at the club.
Wolverhampton will be ready to sell Adama Traore in January, 90 minutes claim. The Spanish winger’s contract negotiations with the club will remain stagnant, with his current contract expiring in 2023. Traore has been linked with Liverpool, but Barcelona could also decide to push the 25-year-old.
Frank Lampard appears to have been appointed as Norwich’s new coach for a long time, but the former Chelsea player refused, before Dean Smith was appointed as the new manager of the yellow-clad squad. In any case, Lampard will be determined to return to the Premier League this season and, according to 90 Minutes, will be watching Leicester, if Brendan Rodgers replaces Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
If Solskjaer stays at United, reports say Donny van de Beek will leave Old Trafford. The Dutchman is struggling to play under the Norwegian coach, and one of those keeping tabs on the 24-year-old’s position is Real Madrid, Vichas wrote. The Spanish capital club are said to be hoping to bring him in January for a much lower sum than what they bought in 2020. At the time, United paid around £40m.
The last one who might be about to walk out the doors at Old Trafford is Dean Henderson. The goalkeeper was expected to fight the battle for the goalkeeper position with David de Gea, but the Corona infection stopped the 24-year-old at the start of the season. Since then, De Gea has been one of United’s best players and has been a regular fixture in Solskjær’s students. 90 Minutes writes that the club has now told Henderson that he can travel on a new loan in January, although the goalkeeper himself must have had a desire for a permanent transfer.
According to Football Insider, Burnley are willing to allow midfielder James Tarkowski’s contract to expire next summer, rather than sell him in the January window. West Ham and Newcastle will be interested in bringing in the 28-year-old.
Rafael Benitez and Everton should have looked to Arsenal to bolster their defence. If we are to believe The Sun, Merseyside could make a £5m bid for Calum Chambers in January if they do not secure a loan deal with Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
Striker Eddie Nkeitia could be on his way out of Arsenal. According to the Daily Mail, both Borussia Monchengladbach and Crystal Palace are interested in the 23-year-old. He himself allegedly wants to leave The Gunners when his contract expires after the season.
