Transfer news LIVE! Latest Cristiano Ronaldo; Wijnaldum to Arsenal; Fabian Ruiz to Man United; Bowen to Liverpool

Cristiano Ronaldo is making the headlines again today with clear concerns about his future at Manchester United.

Meanwhile, United are rumored to be trailing Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz after offering Donny van de Beek to Newcastle.

Jorginho Wijnaldum is said to have Arsenal at heart as Arsenal look for a new midfielder with a shortlist that also contains the likes of Leicester’s Bruno Guimarães, Danilo and Yuri Tillmans.

However, a potential move by Arthur Milo could be negated by Juventus’ unwillingness to loan the Brazilian this month, although the Serie A giants are now believed to be preparing for a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bid.

Meanwhile, it appears that Arsenal’s deal for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic wasn’t close to happening.

Elsewhere, Spurs are still linked with Adama Traore and Jesse Lingard as Antonio Conte seek quick reinforcements, while a move to Italy could be on Tanguy Ndombele’s card.

Reports suggest that Antonio Rudiger is ready to sign a new contract with Chelsea, but the European champions are now competing with interest from Borussia Dortmund in Andreas Christensen as they look to Jules Conde, Presnel Kimpembe and Aurelien Chuamini.

West Ham star Jarrod Bowen is said to be keen on Liverpool, who could land Judd Bellingham in the summer window but a deal for Leeds striker Ravenha is now considered unlikely.

Burnley named Carroll after Wood’s exit

Burnley are considering a move to Andy Carroll after losing striker Chris Wood.

New Zealand international Wood joined relegating rivals Newcastle earlier this week in a deal believed to be worth around £25m.

This exit has left Burnley’s side with a poor scoring side, with Sean Daichi now reportedly on the lookout for former Newcastle striker Carroll.

The 33-year-old has spent the past few weeks with Championship struggling Reading, but his two-month contract at Berkshire expires this weekend.

Arsenal continue talks over Arthur Milo

An update on Arsenal’s interest in Arthur Melo now.

Transfer coach Fabrizio Romano tweeted to say that negotiations between the two clubs are continuing, with Arsenal offering a loan deal without any commitment to buy which will cover his entire salary.

However, he adds again that Juventus will not approve any exit until they find a replacement.

Bowen open to switching Liverpool

That’s not what West Ham fans want to hear.

Jarrod Bowen has been in great shape lately, taking his tally this season to five goals and seven assists.

However, Liverpool have long been linked with the former favorite at Hull, with Football Insider now reporting that Bowen would be open to a move to Anfield in the summer.

Rafinha and Villarreal’s Arnot Danjuma are believed to be Jurgen Klopp’s other targets, but there have been plenty of rumors that the former is about to sign a new contract at Leeds.

Juventus moves Aubameyang’s eye after Chiesa’s strike

Reports indicate that Juventus are considering the transfer of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon striker – who is currently in Cameroon for the Africa Cup of Nations, where he will face Ghana tonight – has been left out of the Arsenal first-team picture under Mikel Arteta after being stripped of the captaincy last month following a disciplinary offense.

Aubameyang’s future at Arsenal is clearly in great doubt, but he still has 18 months to run for a contract that will pay him £250,000-a-week.

Reports from Italy reported by The Sun suggest that Juventus could now move to the former Borussia Dortmund striker after Federico Chiesa was ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury.

Chelsea will try again on Rudiger deal

Chelsea are ready to renew their attempts to get Antonio Rudiger to dedicate his future to the club.

The influential German centre-back will expire in the summer and has strong interest from several other European heavyweights including Bayern Munich, Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain – all of whom can now discuss pre-contract terms with them. .

However, it has been reported in the past few days that Rudiger may now be willing to accept other offers from Chelsea after he was unimpressed by previous talks.

The Daily Mail has now reported that Chelsea will try again with Rudiger, who could accept terms of around £200,000 a week after turning down an initial offer of £140,000.

Man United ‘in good shape’ for Fabian Ruiz

Arsenal is not the only club looking for midfield reinforcements at present.

It is also an area that Ralph Rangnick would like to cement at Manchester United amid ongoing links with Borussia Moenchengladbach and Switzerland star Dennis Zakaria.

Napoli’s Fabian Ruiz is believed to be another target, with Italian outlet La Republica now reporting that United are in a “good position” to sign the Spain international.

Arsenal get a new batch from Wijnaldum

Arsenal’s midfield crisis worsened last night as Martin Odegaard missed a goalless draw with Liverpool due to Covid-19 and Granit Xhaka was subsequently unhelpfully dismissed on his return from the virus at Anfield.

Arsenal did not seem to rule out the possibility of requesting a postponement of Sunday’s north London derby at Tottenham, as there are few options available to them at the moment.

Arsenal are said to have several names on their transfer shortlist, including Leicester’s Yuri Tillmans, Bruno Guimaraes Leon, Danilo of Palmeiras and Juve’s Arthur Melo – more on him in a moment.

Jorginho Wijnaldum has also been linked as he looks forward to an early return to the Premier League after an unhappy stint at PSG.

Apparently, the former Liverpool and Newcastle star has an emotional attachment to Arsenal, which could certainly help them seal a deal this month.

“I have been told that Arsenal is one of his favorite clubs,” a Sky Sports reporter said.

“One of those close to me said that when he grew up he was an Arsenal fan. So I think he would be more than happy to play for Arsenal one day.

“I wouldn’t say it would happen this month. I wouldn’t say it would happen in the summer.

“But they are certainly, I am told, a club close to his heart.”


Ronaldo “baffled” by his teammates at Man United

Good morning, and welcome back to Standard Sport’s changing live coverage of the busy January transfer window.

We start this morning with Cristiano Ronaldo, who is reported to have new concerns about the state of the situation at Manchester United.

According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese star is “puzzled” by the attitude of his team-mates who are not commensurate with his level of effort in terms of additional training and fears that young players are not listening to his advice.

Certainly not the first report detailing Ronaldo’s unhappiness at Old Trafford in recent weeks, with the 36-year-old even being linked with an exciting move to Barcelona in some outlets.
