Dybala staying put

Paulo Dybala is staying at Juventus despite links with a move away.

Juve eye Rakitic deal

Juventus are keen to sign Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic according to reports in Spain.

The midfielder appears to be frozen out at Barcelona and was one option they wanted to use to send to PSG in the Neymar deal.

But with that seemingly dead in the water Juventus will now try their luck with a bid for Rakitic, according to Sport.

Emre Can could be included in the deal after struggling for games in Turin.

Defour leaves Burnley

Burnley have allowed Steven Defour to return to Belgium.

Defour had 10 months left on his deal but has decided to call time on his career in England.

Sean Dyche said: “Steven has worked really hard throughout the summer to get back to full fitness and has made excellent progress. We were looking forward to him playing some part for us later in the season, but for family reasons it is more appropriate for him to return to Belgium.

“We always put the welfare of a player first and hopefully by returning home he can resolve these issues and get the chance to resume his career nearer to his family home. Despite his bad luck with injuries, Steven has been an excellent player for us and big part of our squad. His quality is beyond question and no-one will forget the key role he played in the first half of the 2017/18 season, when we laid the foundations to finish seventh in the Premier League and qualify for Europe.”

Foden bids

Rangers and Roma have both made bids to sign Phil Foden on loan from Manchester City.

But Pep Guardiola has knocked backed the interest and wants to keep him at the club.

Foden has barely played this term despite Guardiola’s praise.

The 19-year-old came on for 10 minutes against West Ham in the 5-0 win on the opening day of the season but hasn’t played since.

Eriksen deal in the balance

Christian Eriksen could still leave Tottenham ahead of Monday night's European transfer deadline with both Paris Saint Germain and Juventus weighing up moves, though those clubs are only likely to make moves if Barcelona sign Neymar.

Neymar’s deal currently looks dead in the water which may give Tottenham hope of keeping their star man but things could still change before tomorrow’s deadline.

Eriksen is keen for a new challenge and is out of contract next summer, although Spurs will tempt him with a new deal if he can’t secure a move.

Mauricio Pochettino has only started him once so far this season but he could feature against Arsenal today.
