Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Alaba to lead Pep's Man City rebuild

Guardiola rules out signing Sancho

Pep Guardiola has ruled out signing former Manchester City winger Jadon Sancho as a possible replacement for Leroy Sane.

Sancho, 20, has been linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund in the transfer window and the Premier League is seen as a likely destination with Manchester United and Chelsea potential options.

City are now in the market for a new winger with Sane close to completing a move to Bayern Munich for an initial €49 million (£45m/$55m) with another €11m (£10m/$12m) in add-ons.

Manager planning overhaul to compensate loss of key players

David Alaba is one of Pep Guardiola's targets to lead a new-look Manchester City, according to the Guardian.

The Bayern Munich star is equally proficient at left-back or in the middle of defence, where he has shifted in Germany due to the emergence of Alphonso Davies.

And with both Leroy Sane and David Silva leaving at the end of the season, plenty of further new faces could be arriving at the Etihad Stadium in the weeks to come.

Arteta keen to complete permanent Arsenal deal for Ceballos

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is hopeful Dani Ceballos can be brought to the Emirates Stadium on a permanent basis after a series of impressive performances for the Gunners.

Injury problems have restricted his involvement, however, with a muscle tear suffered in November ruling him out of action for almost three months.
