Transfer Rumours: Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers

Transfer Rumours – Manchester United

According to Italian news outlet Calciomercato, Inter Milan are taking a keen interest in Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic.

The Serbian has made just four appearances so far this season and has completed 90 minutes just once in this campaign As a result, he looks set to explore his options, with his contract expiring at the end of the season.

Inter Milan are one of a number of clubs looking to sign Matic, including their city rivals AC Milan. However, having previously worked with Antonio Conte could sway Matic to Inter Milan.

Furthermore, another midfielder could be leaving Old Trafford. Phil Thomas of The Sun reports that PSV want Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong on loan.

The 19-year-old is still being integrated into the first team by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. So far this season he has made just one appearance and, as a result, could be sent out on loan to gain first-team experience.

PSV currently lie second in the Eredivise, with only goal difference separating them from the top spot.

Manchester City Eye Leicester City Defender

Manchester City were narrowly beaten to the signing of Harry Maguire during the summer. However, they could be returning to the King Power Stadium in the bid to cure their centre-back issues.

According to Fotospor in Turkey, Pep Guardiola is eyeing a move for Caglar Soyuncu during the January transfer window. The 23-year-old has put in a series of impressive performances so far this season as Leicester currently lie in third place.

Manchester City are on the hunt for a new centre-back with Aymeric Laporte looking set for a six-month spell on the sidelines through injury.

Mesut Ozil Set to Leave Arsenal?

John Cross of the Daily Mirror writes that Arsenal are looking to loan out German midfielder Mesut Ozil.

The 30-year-old has seen his playing time decrease under Unai Emery since the Spaniard’s arrival at The Emirates. He has made just two appearances so far this season.

However, a stumbling block in any move could be Ozil’s wages. The German reportedly receives £350,000 a week on his current deal with Arsenal.

Wolves Eyeing Real Madrid Youngster

According to Tom Hopkinson of the Daily Mirror, Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing a move for Real Madrid youngster Martin Odegaard.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan with La Liga club Real Sociedad, where he has put in a series of impressive performances. So far this season he has two goals and two assists from seven games.
