Football rumours from the media
Suarez, Oxford and Pereira are all the talk of Monday’s papers.
Barcelona have drawn up a shopping list to replace Luis Suarez, who turns 32 next month. Among those who could be heading to the Nou Camp are targets for Premier League clubs, including Ajax’s Kasper Dolberg, Timo Werner, Maxi Gomez and Luka Jovic, according to the Daily Mirror.
What the papers say
Meanwhile, a player who may swap LaLiga for the Premier League is Barcelona central midfielder Denis Suarez, who has been offered to Arsenal for £14million, reports The Sun.
Reece Oxford, who became West Ham’s youngest ever player when he made his debut at 16 years and 198 days, is wanted by Everton, the Daily Mirror says.
Ronald Sobowale has caught the eye of a number of clubs who are hoping he becomes the latest player to make the step up from non-league to the top tiers. Sobowale, 21, is the cousin of Bayern Munich’s David Alaba and currently plays for Walton Casuals, but Watford, Cardiff, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday are all interested in the player.
West Ham are looking to take Andrea Pereira on loan during the January transfer window, according to the Mirror. The Brazilian has only made four starts this term and has previously been loaned out from Manchester United to Granada and Valencia.
