Liverpool to spend big in January

Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group could put 'serious money' on the table for a huge January transfer, transfer expert Duncan Castles claims.

"I think we’ve seen in recent times with Liverpool that Fenway Sports Group have had no hesitation about putting serious money on the table to solve problem areas or improve upon what they’ve got in areas of the team," Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast.

"And they’ve gone for top targets at high prices, like Virgil Van Dijk, Naby Keita, they’re working at the end of the transfer market where you can identify a player that fits your system and you have the money, unless one of the other really big clubs come in against them, to make those deals happen.

"In fact, you can say even when one of the big clubs come in against them, because Virgil Van Dijk was of serious interest to Manchester City last January and they basically stepped away because of the offer that was on the table in terms of salary and transfer fee from Liverpool for Van Dijk.

"It would not surprise me if FSG did the same in January, because they’re prepared to go there and they’ve got a lot of faith in Jurgen Klopp and they’ve got a lot of faith in their recruitment department.

"That's because they’ve had a series of successes and made big profits on a couple of players, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho in particular, which gives them the financial argument that it’s worthwhile spending heavily on players as these guys they get value from."

Man Utd swap deal

Manchester United could land Juventus star Alex Sandro in a part-exchange for Paul Pogba.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Juve may be willing to give up their star left-back to bring Pogba back to Italy.

United apparently showed they maintain an interest in Sandro by jetting scouts out to watch him on Wednesday night.

Pogba has been heavily linked with an Old Trafford exit after numerous bust-ups with Jose Mourinho.

Arsenal offered Barca ace

Arsenal have been offered Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez.

The Independent claim the Spain international is keen to leave the Nou Camp in January to get regular game time.

Barca have told Arsenal Suarez, 24, will cost just £14m in the New Year.

Suarez could be a potential replacement for Aaron Ramsey, who is set to leave the Emirates at the end of the season.

Chelsea confident of deal

Chelsea believe they are in a strong position to sign Bournemouth hotshot Callum Wilson when the transfer window opens in January.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is eager to secure an alternative to battering ram Olivier Giroud and the misfiring Alvaro Morata.

And he has set his sights on Wilson, who will be out to impress once again when he returns from a hamstring injury on Saturday.

Express Sport understands fourth-place Chelsea are confident of completing a deal to get Wilson on board in January, with the Blues willing to pay £30m.
