Arsenal and Man City ‘battle’ to land £60m full-back as Klopp prepare West Ham raid

There are 111 days left until the January transfer window begins to accept new players. Those who are keeping score will also note that it has been just 11 days since the summer transfer window closed. But don’t be fooled by those stats that are so skewed in one direction; the speculating will never, ever stop.

Take, for example, the slew of Premier League rumors that circulated on Tuesday. These rumors center not only on the winter transfer market, but also on a couple of potential transactions that could take place before the end of the season.

Isn’t it absolutely unrelenting in nature?
According to recent reports, Liverpool is considering making an offer to acquire the services of West Ham defender Nayef Aguerd.

It is believed that the Moroccan central defender has done enough to persuade Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp of the potential value he may bring to the Reds through his performances during his time with the Hammers so far. He has been very impressive.

Should Liverpool decide to move further with their interest, they may find themselves up against heavy competition from Manchester City, who are the current winners of the Premier League. The current team that he plays for paid him almost £30 million last year.

Although it is unknown exactly how much the right-back’s current release clause actually is, he is garnering interest after a fantastic performance in his first season in Spain. He presently plays for Atletico Madrid, where he has garnered a lot of attention.

There have been claims stating that it is as low as £25.7 million, but others estimate that it is closer to £60 million. In either case, it is possible that Atleti will try to ward off the impending interest from England by offering the South American a new deal.
Both Burnley and Palace are interested in the striker.

According to Football Insider, two of the many clubs monitoring Colchester United striker Bradley Ihionvien are Burnley and Crystal Palace. Other clubs are also keeping an eye on Ihionvien. In addition to the two teams from the Premier League, clubs from the Championship including Leicester City, Watford, and Norwich City are also keeping an eye on the youngster.

Ihionvien has scored twice in his last three games for Essex this season, and he is about to be released from his current contract at the end of the current campaign; this could encourage a team from a higher tier of the footballing pyramid to take a chance on him.
