Coral’s rumour reel
The transfer window may be shut until January, but Premier League clubs are still on the lookout for players that can make an impact within their squad for the second part of the campaign.
Top-flight teams have some time to wait before the winter market opens, but it hasn’t stopped coaches from having a gander around, as the domestic action continues into an exciting matchweek seven.
Arsenal scouting Dembele
Former Fulham frontman Moussa Dembele has shot to immediate stardom at Celtic, having so far thrived at Parkhead under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers, and his fine form has already attracted interest from all of Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
The 20-year-old was recently observed by Gunners scouts during the Hoops’ thrilling 3-3 Champions League draw with Manchester City, as they ended Pep Guardiola’s previously perfect record at the club.
Dembele was on target twice in the gallant performance in Glasgow and his impressive outings have caught the eye of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who will reportedly look to capture the youngster next year.
The France Under-20 international attacker has now dispatched 12 times across 16 outings on all fronts, all incredibly being at home, including an Old Firm derby day hat-trick against bitter rivals Rangers earlier in the season.
Liverpool target Isak as Foxes lurk
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have began the season brightly, with the German coach instilling his eye-catching, attacking style into his set-up, and the Reds could soon be welcoming another new promising forward to their ranks.
The Reds are reportedly set to swoop for highly-rated Swedish youngster Alexander Isak in January, a 17-year-old striker who has been dubbed ‘the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ after rising to prominence with scoring success in his native homeland.
Although, as Liverpool target Isak, Premier League champions Leicester City are also said to be interested in the talented teenager and could rival the Merseysiders for his signature in the coming months.
Isak has been linked with European giants Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid as well, having struck six Swedish league goals in 18 appearances for AIK this current campaign.
