What the papers say
Arsenal could lose Eddie Nketiah in the summer with the Gunners not able to claim back a penny, reports The Sun. The paper says the 22-year-old is stalling on the signing of a new deal at the Emirates, meaning he is able to start talking to other clubs in January.
Sticking with north London and Besiktas continue to be keen on a move for Mohamed Elneny, reports the Daily Mirror. The paper says the 29-year-old’s wage demands are currently too high for the Turkish outfit.
Mohamed Salah will be looking for wages of around £500,000-a-week (€583,404) in any new deal at Liverpool, reports the Mirror.
Jesse Lingard may be looking for a way out of Manchester United in January unless he gets more game-time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the first half of this season, writes the Daily Mail.
QPR keeper Seny Dieng is reportedly being pursued by Sheffield United, who had a cash influx following the sale of Aaron Ramsdale for around £24.5m (€28.5m) to Arsenal, says The Irish Sun.
