The Today's Football Transfer News looks at the latest news and rumors, including Alvaro Morata, which is being sought by Barcelona, and Paul Pogba, who is still connected with a move back to Italy. FTN, brought to you by Last Word on Football, also looks at Arsenal's pursuit of a new defender plus the Brighton midfielder that is being considered by Liverpool.
Morata to Barcelona?
Reports from Spain indicate that Barcelona Chelsea is chasing striker Alvaro Morata. The Spanish giants are looking for reinforcements in the front and can sign Morata in January. Barca initially looks at a loan agreement with a view to a permanent move next summer.
The former Real Madrid attacker could welcome a return to Spain after enduring a difficult time since his arrival at Stamford Bridge. The 26-year-old failed to secure the permanent place in the first team he craves and, flattered to deceive, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri might be willing to let him go.
Juventus wants Pogba back
The Pogba rumor mill continues as Juventus reportedly raises a bid of £ 80 million. The French star impressed the World Cup; however, his form at Manchester United does not meet expectations. If Juventus calls, Pogba would probably welcome the move.
Before the recent match between the two parties, Pogba indicated that Turin was his home. During his time in Turin, Pogba was a favorite in winning four country titles. He was considered one of the best players in the world. However, after his big move to Old Trafford, his form is no longer what he was and he finally proved to be an expensive flop. Could he recapture his form from United or would he prefer a move back to Italy?
Cahill on Arsenal & # 39; s Radar
Chelsea is willing to let Captain Gary Cahill leave in January. Boss Maurizio Sarri believes he has better defense options and has therefore advised the defender that he is free to leave if he wishes. Aston Villa was reportedly interested; however, Arsenal has now entered the race for his signature.
The 32-year-old is in the last year of his current contract, but Chelsea is expected to only offer a one-year deal. Arsenal, who needs defensive reinforcements, could offer a longer contract and let the player extend the playing time. The Gunners have other goals, however, as a result of which the defender could still make contact with his former teammate John Terry in Villa.
Klopp seen Gross Move
Liverpool is interested in Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross. Jurgen Klopp reportedly would like to bring in an additional attacking midfielder and offer £ 15 million for the German in January. After joining Brighton in 2017, he won the "Player of the Year & # 39; This season he has been in and out of the team due to injuries.
Klopp has a history of signing players from lower teams in the league and makes them Liverpool's first-team regulars. The 27-year-old German could be the next in line for a move to Anfield. The Reds boss is an admirer of Gross, who has known him in German since his youth.
