TOP STORY: Reds go to Dembele with Chiesa

Liverpool may make a move to sign Ousmane Dembele. They hope to acquire the Barcelona star via a free transfer.

Team Talk claims that the Reds will approach the France international in January. He will still have six months on his current contract with Barcelona.

Jurgen Klopp's team was previously linked to Federico Chiesa. However, Fabrizio Romano revealed earlier Saturday that Juventus consider the Italy star untouchable, making it difficult to pursue.

Barcelona wanted to tie the 24-year old down to new terms but talks between Dembele, LaLiga and Barcelona have stalled. This has led to a queue of interest for Dembele, a winger who joined Camp Nou in 2017 for 135.5 million.


Reports that Newcastle United made Kalidou Koulibaly their priority signing in January add to the growing list of names associated with a move from St. James' Park. Football Insider reports that the new board views the Senegal international at centre-back as a star and a great first marquee signing. Manchester United was linked to the 30-year-old in summer.

Paris Saint-Germain is looking to increase their attack depth with Lorenzo Insigne, who Leonardo has requested. Le 10 Sport reports that the Ligue 1 club is considering a move for Napoli's star player in the summer with the hope of securing a transfer free. Although the 30-year-old was in discussions about a renewal of his terms, which expire at the close of the season. However, the Italy international may now be able to make a decision with one of Europe's most prestigious clubs interested in his signature.

According to Corriere Dello Sport, Juventus are interested in Donny van der Beek. The Manchester United midfielder has had trouble finding regular first-team time at Old Trafford. With Turin looking to improve their long-term projects, the Netherlands midfielder could be an option in the January transfer window.

Corriere Dello Sports has reported that Giacomo Bonaventura is getting closer to signing a new Fiorentina contract. The Viola extended Bonaventura's terms and gave him the option for an additional season. This 32-year old has been a key player in the midfield this year, scoring one goal and assisting two others in the Serie A.

According to Nicolo Schira, Denis Zakaria turned down Borussia Monchengladbach’s latest contract offer. In the last week, the Swiss international was linked to AS Roma and it appears that the 24-year old could be leaving after his current contract expires this summer.

The Mirror exclusively reports Mike Ashley may be interested in buying Derby County. After a 305million deal to transfer ownership of Newcastle United last week, Ashley is now looking to get back into football. The football owner may be able to purchase the club for a lower price, as Derby County is in administration.
