We always have to look at signings – Ten Hag

Arsenal and Manchester United have been provided with the price to secure Joao Felix, as the Portuguese superstar looks set to move club in the January transfer window.

Atletico Madrid have set a £9.5million loan fee and a commitment to buy at £70.5m, according to the Mirror, with the Premier League duo said to be vying for the 23-year-old forward.

Man Utd are aiming to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and while their pursuit of Felix is rumbling away in the background, they are also targeting Netherlands international Wout Weghorst. The striker is currently on loan at Besiktas from Burnley until the end of the season and the Turkish side have said they are willing to negotiate compensation for the cancellation of his loan if he secures a permanent transfer this month. “There could be a reward for us if we give our consent to the cancellation [of the loan],” said Besiktas sporting director Ceyhun Kazanci. “For example, if Burnley told us: ‘Weghorst is moving to this team and we are giving you half of the fee’ we would sit down and talk to them.”

Elsewhere, Zinedine Zidane has reportedly knocked back offers to manage three separate men’s national teams. The Mail, which cites French outlet L’Equipe, has the ex-Real Madrid boss turning down the Brazil, Portugal and USA dugouts because the only nation he wants to manage is his native France. Tottenham are targeting Brentford’s David Raya or Everton’s Jordan Pickford as a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris, according to The Telegraph, while Aston Villa striker Danny Ings is wanted by Crystal Palace and Everton.

Wilfried Zaha to stay with Crystal Palace

It feels like every transfer window since the dawn of time has involved some Wilfried Zaha speculation but David Ornstein of The Athletic is reporting that the winger will stay with Crystal Palace this January.

The 30-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and he is committed to helping the Eagles finish as high in the table as possible before deciding whether to sign a new deal or move on as a free agent in the summer.

Crystal Palace and Everton to battle for Danny Ings

The Sun reports Crystal Palace want to battle Everton for the signature of Danny Ings.

The paper says the Eagles are on alert following the absence of the ex-England striker from Aston Villa’s Premier League starting XI since the World Cup.

Palace boss Patrick Vieira would apparently take 30-year-old Ings on loan or even try to land him for a bargain price if Villa give any sign that they are willing to sell.

Tottenham seeking long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris

Tottenham are understood to be hunting a long-term successor to starting goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. The 36-year-old France stopper signed with Spurs in 2012 and is contracted until 2024.

The Telegraph says Brentford’s David Raya, 27, is high on the list of Tottenham’s targets, along with Everton’s England international Jordan Pickford.

Fraser Forster joined Spurs in the summer as Lloris’s back-up but he will celebrate his 35th birthday in March and is not seen as a long-term solution.

Wout Weghorst’s Manchester United transfer hangs on Besiktas compromise

Besiktas have said they might allow Wout Weghorst to join Manchester United if Burnley compensate them for cancelling his loan spell in Turkey.

The Netherlands striker has emerged as a surprise target for United as Erik ten Hag looks to bolster his forward options after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.

United’s budget may only stretch to loan signings after they spent more than £200 million in the summer and Besiktas borrowed Weghorst from Burnley for the season after their relegation from the Premier League.

Weghorst appeared to wave farewell to Besiktas supporters after Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Kasimpasa.
