ANTHONY MARTIAL

Arsenal are exploring the possibility of signing Manchester United forward Anthony Martial as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, according to the Mirror .

The 21-year-old has largely operated from the bench this season with his starting role in the team jeopardised by Jose Mourinho’s preference for Marcus Rashford and Arsene Wenger may look to counter on that.

RATING: 6/10

VERDICT

As is well documented, Sanchez’s deal is up in the summer and with him unlikely to renew, the Gunners need to look at alternatives and perhaps strike quick in January.

Martial is more than deserving of a regular starting berth and if he doesn’t get that at United then it could be difficult to keep onto him. It just depends on whether United would be willing to sell to a domestic rival.

PHILIPPE COUTINHO

Paris Saint-Germain will lock horns with Barcelona for the signature of Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho, reports Sport.

The Ligue 1 giants have apparently already contacted his representatives and will lodge a €150million offer for his services.

RATING: 7/10

VERDICT

Neymar and Coutinho are good friends and no doubt the Brazil team-mates have discussed a prospective move during the international break.

Barca will unlikely give up the ghost and Liverpool have already shown they will not budge in their stance not to sell a key player so prepare yourself for another soap opera.

SERGIO AGUERO

Manchester City are plotting a £20million January bid for Alexis Sanchez and in turn AC Milan will attempt to prize Sergio Arguero away from the Etihad Stadium.

According to the Daily Mail, Pep Guardiola would consider letting the Argentine leave if he can seal a deal for Sanchez.

RATING: 7/10

VERDICT

Feels like the summer all over again with the same rumours, eh? Anyway, if Arsenal can find a replacement for Sanchez, they will likely allow him to leave and the knock-on effect will mean Aguero could be available.
