What the papers say

West Brom's hunt for a new manager to replace Tony Pulis is well under way with a raft of names being linked with the Hawthorns hot-seat. The Express and Star says the side are looking at taking on ALAN PARDEW, reporting the former Newcastle and Crystal Palace boss will be interviewed this week.

One man who is not interested in a return to management, though, is LOUIS VAN GAAL, who has ruled himself out of the Everton job, according to the Liverpool Echo.

On the transfer front, Arsenal are keen on signing Schalke midfielder LEON GORETZKA in the January window, according to the Daily Mirror. The paper reports the 22-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, is also subject to interest from Manchester City and Juventus.

Promising midfielder JAVAIRO DILROSUN is subject of interest from a number of top European clubs, the Daily Mail reports. The Man City and Dutch under-19 international is out of contract next summer with Liverpool, Juventus and Valencia all interested, the paper reports.

PAULO DYBALA may be leaving Juventus and had admitted he misses Manchester United player Paul Pogba, igniting speculation he may move to Old Trafford. The 24-year-old has been linted with a move to United, Barcelona and Real Madrid, claims the Mirror.
