Transfer news LIVE: Chelsea interested in Malo Gusto, Spurs target Zaniolo 'asks to leave', Jude Bellingham latest | The Sun

CHELSEA are reportedly set to make an offer to sign Lyon right-back Malo Gusto

The Blues need reinforcements at the position due to Reece James' injury history and have targeted a move for the 19-year-old.

Elsewhere, Jose Mourinho has confirmed Nicolo Zaniolo has asked to LEAVE Roma.

The Tottenham target has been high on Antonio Conte's wishlist for some time and Spurs want to start negotiating a transfer, but they only want a loan to start with.

Footballing icon Lionel Messi is reportedly set to snub a move which would see him join Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi Arabian Pro League.

The World Cup winner was linked with an astonishing £306million-a-year contract offer from Al-Hilal.

But reports suggest that Messi will turn that deal down as his future rumbles on.

    Good morning, football fans

    Real Madrid have cooled their interest in Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.

    The French forward is said to be unhappy at PSG.

    But, Marca says the LaLiga giants aren’t fooled and are taking a cautious approach in any pursuit for the World Cup winner.

    Everton are one of the teams said to be interested in signing Hakim Ziyech.

    The Chelsea midfielder could be allowed to leave following the arrival of Noni Madueke.

    Which means the Blues now have a decision to make on the Moroccan.

    Spurs are reportedly only offering a loan deal for Nicolo Zaniolo, according to reports.

    In their offer, they haven’t included an obligation to buy, which the Italians are desperate for.

    Fabrizio Romano wrote on Twitter: “Tottenham are currently only offering an initial loan for Nicoló Zaniolo with buy option included. That’s their only proposal as things stand.

    “Roma want €35/40m guaranteed fee, no agreement yet. Player keen on the move. AC Milan, also keeping an eye on the situation.”

    West Ham were rejected by Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri as he did not want to live in the London cold, according to reports.

    The Moroccan has been heavily linked with a transfer this month.

    The Hammers wanted to bring him to the Premier League and were reportedly willing to match Sevilla’s £17.5million asking price.

    But En-Nesryi turned down the move as he was put off by the cold climate in London, report Estadio Deportivo.

    He is used to living in warmer conditions and is interested in moving to Nice.

    Youssufa Moukoko has committed his future to Borussia Dortmund by signing a long-term contract until 2026 with the Bundesliga side.

    The teenager was a target for several Premier League clubs, but the striker will be staying in Germany.

    He said: “I was honoured by interest of other clubs, but ultimately it’s a decision of the heart.

    “Fans have always supported me, and I also want to give something back to them and the club.”

    Chelsea’s January dealings may not be over with reports indicating they are interested in Barcelona’s Franck Kessie.

    Sport report the Blues want the midfielder and would be willing to weigh up a swap deal for Hakim ZIyech.

    The Moroccan enjoyed a very good World Cup and has recently worked his way back into Graham Potter’s starting line-up.

    But Barcelona are believed to see him as a potential replacement for Memphis Depay, who left for Atletico Madrid this week.

    Depay wanted to leave

    Memphis Depay wanted to leave Barcelona, according to boss Xavi.

    "Memphis asked to leave after he received Atletico's proposal," Xavi revealed.

    "He asked me to leave, he wasn't comfortable, he wanted to be comfortable again. We all came out of the situation as winners.

    "If we can strengthen ourselves, that would be great. If not, it's not urgent. We'll see if we can sign someone, but we must remember Financial Fair Play rules."

    Wonderkid chase

    Man Utd are chasing Brazilian wonderkid Vitor Roque and want to pursue a deal this summer.

    The Red Devils are one of a number of suitors for the 17-year-old forward, including PSG.

    According to Gazzetta dello Sport, United want to act quickly to fend off rival competition to sign the Athletico Paranaense talent.

    But United may have to splash £52.5million to lure Roque from his homeland.

    Ronaldo's subdued Saudi debut

    While Manchester United were tangling at the top of the Premier League, their fallen icon was getting a first look at the Saudi Pro League.

    The spectacle of Cristiano Ronaldo in Arabia is more surreal than anyone expected.

    Al-Nassr’s new man made a winning but rather frustrating start to life in Asia.

    His new club claimed three points with a 1-0 win over Ettifaq, but from jogging out onto the wrong half of the pitch for the warm up, losing the ball with his first two touches after kick-off and not managing a shot on target – it was not the debut the nation had hoped or paid for.

    Spurs moved slow on Trossard

    Leandro Trossard's agent has revealed how Spurs missed out on his client to rivals Arsenal.

    "Spurs were in contact with us for the last two weeks – but it was, ‘We want him, but wait this, wait that’,” his rep Josy Comhair said.

    "[On] Wednesday, we got in touch with Arsenal; 24 hours later, they had an agreement."

    Kiwior in the stands

    Soon-to-be Arsenal player Jakub Kiwior and his twerking champion fiancee have been spotted in the directors box for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.

    Arsenal are on the verge of signing Polish defender Kiwior from Spezia for £17.5million.

    The 22-year-old is in England to put pen to paper on a long-term deal and is at the Emirates for the Gunners’ huge league clash with rivals Man Utd.

    Kiwior was spotted in the directors box alongside his 30-year-old fiancee, Claudia Kowalczyk.

    Erik ten Hag’s men took the lead through an excellent Marcus Rashford finish.

    But it didn’t take Arsenal long to draw level with Eddie Nketiah heading home at the back post.

    Zubimendi 'not keen on Arsenal switch'

    Arsenal want to pay Martin Zubimendi's £52.5million release clause but it's claimed the anchorman is reluctant to leave Real Sociedad.

    The Spain star, 23, signed a five-year deal at the LaLiga club in October 2022.

    And he reportedly refused to raise his release clause to £79m, fuelling speculation a transfer could happen.

    But for now at least the opposite appears the case with the one-cap midfielder.

    Zubimendi has come through the ranks at Real Sociedad, only ever playing for them.

    The White and Blues are third in the table, just three points behind first place Barcelona, while the club are still going strong in the Europa League.

    Red Devils 'duel Bayern for Axel'

    Manchester United have made an approach for Monaco's Axel Disasi, reports say

    The Frenchman, 24, was used as a right-back at the World Cup but is normally a central defender.

    Andaccording to Telefoot, the Red Devils have launched an initial approach to sign Disasi from Monaco.

    Having lost Disasi's centre-back partner Benoit Badiashile to Chelsea for £35million earlier this month, the Ligue 1 side will not want to lose a second defender on the cheap.

    Monaco will reportedly demand north of £44m for Disasi's signature.

    And United will face strong competition to complete a deal.

    Bayern Munich are also in the race, having made Disasi a "priority target".

    United and Chelsea linked to Vlahovic

    Arsenal are one of a number of clubs offered the chance to snatch Dusan Vlahovic.

    A dramatic week off the pitch for Juventus saw them docked 15 points for transfer irregularities and be left languishing in mid-table, 12 points off a Champions League place.

    90min report that a chance to play in Europe’s top competition is important to Vlahovic, and Juve are open to letting him go.

    Manchester United, Chelsea, PSG and Bayern Munich are believed to be the other clubs in the running for the Serbian’s signature.

    You Can Tross Me

    Leandro Trossard could be in for his Arsenal debut today – and it could hardly come in a bigger game.

    After an acrimonious exit from Brighton, the Belgian will be keen to do his talking on the pitch and give the Gunners' title hopes a boost against Man United this afternoon.

    Having arrived at the Amex in 2019, these are Trossard's numbers from his first three-and-a-half years in the Premier League.

    2019-20: 31 games, 5 goals, 3 assists
    2020-21: 35 games, 5 goals, 5 assists
    2021-22: 34 games, 8 goals, 3 assists
    2022-23: 16 games, 7 goals, 2 assists

    Crystal Clear

    Crystal Palace shareholders Josh Harris and David Blitzer are considering bidding for a stake in Manchester United, according to reports.

    The American duo bought 18 per cent each of Crystal Palace in 2015, but have since reduced their combined stake in the Eagles to under 20 per cent.

    Financial experts value the Red Devils at an eye-watering £7billion, which could put off potential buyers and make a partial sale more likely.

    Should this be the case, Harris and Blitzer could look to make a bid for a stake in the club that would still see the Glazers remain majority shareholders.

    Harris and Blitzer own a network of sports teams in the US. They control the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA and New Jersey Devils in the NHL.

    From Barca to Brazil?

    Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is being considered for the Brazil job.

    The 52-year-old was in charge of Spain in Qatar and watched their tournament fall apart as they were dumped out at the round of 16 to Morocco.

    But he could be set for another big international job as reports suggest he could replace Tite.

    He left the Brazil role after they similarly experienced a disappointing World Cup campaign.

    Hands on Dec

    Arsenal's chances of signing Declan Rice have been boosted as the player is reportedly keen on the switch.

    The midfielder could leave West Ham in the summer in search of Champions League football.

    There is no shortage of interest in Rice with Chelsea and Manchester United believed to be long-term suitors.

    But Arsenal may be the frontrunner to land the England star as Rice is keen to work with Mikel Arteta, report The Guardian.

    The Gunners boss has reportedly even started planning for where the West Ham captain would fit into his team.

    West Ham could demand around £100million to let Rice leave.

    'Untouchable'

    Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has ordered Arsenal to keep their hands "untouchable" star Eduardo Camavinga.

    Reports in recent days have linked the Gunners to the midfield dynamo.

    But Ancelotti has been made clear he is not for sale.

    He said: "We will not let Camavinga leave, he's untouchable — like Modrić and Toni Kroos."

    But according to Italian expert Gianluca DiMarzio, they will let Conte's contract expire and he will depart.

    He said: "The news I can tell you with certainty is that Antonio Conte will leave Tottenham at the end of the season. There was no spark, his contract is expiring and the club has not asked him for a renewal.

    "The club does not like the frequent jibes. Conte wants players to win, while the club prefers to trade, the feeling with the club has not clicked."

    Manchester United reportedly want Alejandro Garnacho to sign a mammoth EIGHT-year-deal.

    The 18-year-old has given a glimpse of what he is capable of this season and set up the assist for Rashford in last week's Manchester derby.

    The Red Devils want to tie him down long-term, according to the Mirror, but Garnacho's represents favourite a shorter four year deal.
