The papers will not rest until Arsenal have been linked with every player on the planet and matters haven’t been helped by their shock capitulation against Liverpool. The latest name on the list is Wolfsburg’s attacking midfielder Maximilian Arnold, who is also reportedly a target for Juventus.
We’ve also got the latest on Eden Hazard, Arturo Vidal and Romelu Lukaku, so get clicking to check out the best gossip around.
Manchester United’s miserable 2-2 draw with Fulham on Sunday highlighted their need for fresh legs at the back and Ajax defender Joel Veltman could be that man, according to one of the morning papers. Veltman joins a list including Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal and former United star Paul Pogba, plus Southampton left-back Luke Shaw.
And we have the latest on Michael Laudrup, whose stock seems to have risen despite being sacked by Swansea. Click here for more.
Manchester United boss David Moyes has been promised funds for a huge foray into the summer transfer market. The Red Devils boss is to present the board with a £100 million ($164 million) hit-list.

In a new video posted by the Bianconeri’s official YouTube account, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Andrea Pirlo go out for a nice little brunch together after practice. Throughout the spot, Lichtsteiner asks Pirlo to “pass” him multiple things. The punchline (it’s not much of one) is when Stephan asks Pirlo to pass him the water, which is closer to him.
On their way out of the restaurant, Pirlo has a revelation: maybe practice makes perfect?
Somehow, passing is only Pirlo’s second-greatest attribute, well behind fashion. Just look at him:
Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has grown up right in front of our eyes this season. With six goals and four assists in league play, the 20-year-old is one of Serie A’s highest-rated players on the season, and a key component of a Juve team that is dominating Italy.
If that wasn’t enough, he’s also very good at juggling… while blindfolded. Though Pogba botched his first couple attempts in the video above, on the third try he manages 19 touches, and even whips out some “Around the Worlds” for good measure.
This just proves once more that even a blindfolded Pogba could’ve probably been very useful to the Manchester United midfield this season, had Sir Alex Ferguson not let him leave to Juventus for free a couple of years ago.
The only question now is, what’s more impressive: juggling blindfolded or in high heels?
Arsenal have been pulling out all the stops to sign Julian Draxler, a deal described as an “illusion” by Arsene Wenger only last week. But the Gunners’ transfer interest doesn’t stop there. Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic, whose move to Inter Milan collapsed last week, also looks as though he will be joining Schalke midfielder Draxler at the Emirates.
We’ve got a heap of other rumors too. One of the best involves a club interested in signing Manchester United winger Nani. Click here to find out which one.

The rumors keep rolling in for Manchester United supporters. A fortnight ago it was Wesley Sneijder, last week it was Atletico star Koke and Dortmund’s Marco Reus. Who will fill that midfield role now the transfer window has opened?
In Thursday’s English newspapers, Juventus’ Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal is the latest name to be linked with a move to Old Trafford. Vidal has been one of Juve’s outstanding players and one of the reasons they have won back-to-back Scudetto’s in recent years. It is certain United will have to break the bank for the midfielder, especially in the inflated January sales.

With the January transfer window nearing questions again are starting to emerge about Nani’s future at Manchester United.
