Football rumours from the media

UK Sport | Published:

Arsenal and Denis Suarez are reportedly in touch about a loan deal.

What the papers say

Arsenal might be limited to loan deals this transfer window, but that doesn’t mean the Gunners have stopped their pursuit of Denis Suarez, the Mirror says. The club are still in talks with the Barcelona midfielder over a move this January, it says, with the possibility of a more permanent deal at the Emirates in the summer.

Cardiff City are upping the ante in their bid for Nantes striker Emiliano Sala, the Mail reports. Citing French media, it says discussions are due to take place over the next 24 hours, with any deal having the potential to provide a much-needed boost for the Bluebirds as Neil Warnock fights to keep out of the relegation zone.

Bournemouth are willing to let go of Callum Wilson but have slapped a high price tag on the forward, the Star says. The Cherries reportedly want £75million – 25 times the amount they paid in 2014 for the 26-year-old. It remains to be seen whether the large demand will be enough to keep Chelsea at bay.
