Brendan Rodgers is not interested
Brendan Rodgers reiterated his desire to remain head of Leicester amid continuing links with the vacant Arsenal position.
Since Unai Emery was fired by the Gunners last week, Rodgers has been persistently attached to the position at Emirates Stadium, despite asserting his commitment to Foxes on several occasions.
"I'm at Leicester. I'm not interested (at Arsenal), I said that," said Rodgers.
“I'm very happy, so I don't need to look elsewhere. And I think logic would tell you – and I know sometimes in your world this gossip and speculation is not always logical – but why would I want to leave the city of Leicester right now? "
Latest Mauricio Pochettino
Mauricio Pochettino is open to a return from the Premier League.
The Argentine, who led Spurs to the Champions League final last season, was fired after a string of poor results in all competitions this season and replaced by Jose Mourinho, who has since guided the team to three wins in so many games.
Since then, Pochettino has been linked to his vacant job at Spurs rival Arsenal in north London, as well as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
"There are a lot of attractive clubs and projects for me to take on," Pochettino told Fox Sports in Argentina.
Manchester United are planning a move for Juventus defender Merih Demiral.
This is according to the Italian publication Calciomercato, which states that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team could submit an offer in January.
Demiral, 21, has only made one appearance for Juventus in all competitions this season and seems to exceed Maurizio Sarri's requirements.
Juventus sports director Fabio Paratici recently confirmed that the club rejected a United approach during the summer.
"He is our player with the most business in the market, I don't know how many. Turk was requested by Milan but also approached by Manchester United," Paratici told Gazzetta dello Sport.
Wanted: Dejan Kulusevski
Manchester United are engaged in a triple battle to sign Atalanta star Dejan Kulusevski.
Kulusevski, 19, is taking advantage of a lucrative lending period with Parma – scoring three goals and giving five assists in 14 games.
His performances earned him the applause and attention of several European heavyweights, including Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham.
The trio were present to watch the Swedish international, valued at £ 40m, during Sunday's 1-0 defeat against Milan.
Liverpool is a favorite of Jadon Sancho
Liverpool are favorites to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
This is according to Norwegian legend Jan Aage Fjortoft, who says the England international wants to leave in January.
“From a very good source in Germany: Klopp and Liverpool are favorites for Dortmund player Sancho. Sancho wants to leave the club in January, ”tweeted Fjortoft.
Sancho, valued at £ 100 million, has Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United seeking their services.
Declan and Jadon Sancho Rice
Manchester United hope to bring in Jadon Sancho and Declan Rice when the transfer window reopens in January, reports say.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's work at Manchester United is safe for now, with Ed Woodward reluctant to fire the Norwegian despite his admiration for Mauricio Pochettino.
And the Red Devils must attack the January transfer window with the aim of changing the season.
And Goal says it expects to bring Sancho and Rice when the transfer window reopens in January.
A move to Erling Haaland has been discussed, but it is more likely to happen at the end of the season.
