Most recent Timo Werner
Liverpool are still very interested in signing RB Leipzig's Timo Werner.
This is according to the German newspaper Bild, who claim that Jurgen Klopp could launch an approach for the 23 year old in the summer.
The report states that Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Atlético de Madrid are monitoring the German international, who has scored 25 goals in 30 games this season.
Werner is believed to be available for around £ 51 million due to a release clause in his contract, which expires in June 2023.
Battle of Hakim Ziyech
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has received the club's support to continue his long-term plan to overhaul his team and the Red Devils are preparing to fight Chelsea over Ajax star Hakim Ziyech.
The 26-year-old has had several impressive seasons for his team at the Eredivisie, but the midfielder also caught the attention of many clubs when he helped Ajax reach the Champions League semifinals last season.
Ziyech signed a new three-year contract last summer, but according to The sun, United, Chelsea and Arsenal are all interested in him.
However, while Solskjaer wants to renew his squad, he may have to act quickly if he wants to sign Ziyech at the end of the season.
This is because the report states that Chelsea is preparing an offer of £ 45 million to try to take him to Stamford Bridge.
Interview with Mauricio Pochettino
Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino would like to have another opportunity to manage the Premier League.
Before leaving Tottenham, the 47-year-old had already been associated with Manchester United and Spanish Real Madrid.
And Pochettino revealed that he would be tempted by another job in the English Premier League if the right opportunity presented itself.
"To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League," he told the Sky Sports podcast & # 39; In The Pink. "It will be difficult, I know, and for now it is a time to wait and we will see what happens.
"It is a moment of recovery, thinking a little about yourself and being ready, because in football something can always happen and you need to be ready. I am ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the belief and confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic ".
Jack Grealish and James Maddison plan
Manchester United are planning to sign a contract with Jack Grealish and James Maddison.
The two playmakers impressed this campaign for Aston Villa and Leicester, respectively.
And both are likely to be involved in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the next European Championship, but they could be transferred with a lot of money soon after.
Young people recently spent their holidays in Dubai during this week's Premier League winter break and are believed to be good friends.
AND The sun says United will try to use their friendship as a way to sign the pair in a £ 160 million pair this summer.
Seats Safe Foot Seats
A group of Manchester United fans say they welcome the club's request to have 1,500 railway seats installed at Old Trafford, with the aim of allowing fans to be safe.
The club applied for permission from the local Security Advisory Group (SAG) in December and hopes to receive the endorsement to introduce a secure section.
United faced long-term problems, with fans refusing to sit on parts of their Old Trafford ground, with all seats, but the rail seats were designed to lock in a folded position, giving fans space.
"We hope to see this progress as quickly as possible, as we have long argued that rail seats are a safety improvement and popular with many fans, whether they prefer to stand or prefer to remain seated during the game in other areas with a view clear, "a statement from the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) said on Tuesday.
"The Northeast Quadrant (lower) was selected initially because it was an area where the persistent position was established more than six years ago."
