Transfer Rumor Roundup: Sturridge to Inter; Laporte to Man City

The latest gossip from around the Premier League.

Football transfer news and rumours: 'Lucas Moura admits he is unhappy at PSG amid Arsenal and Tottenham interest'

Paris Saint-Germain's relentless drive to spend their way to the top of the game was always going to have some casualties, and Lucas Moura, the Brazilian winger who has long been linked with a move away from the club, looks like he the next. Moura, 25, has been at PSG for five years but has only made six appearances this season, after the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the summer. Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United have all previously been reported to have had an interest in the Brazilian, and each could be keen to press for a deal after Moura admitted to "not being happy" in France. "It's a brutal blow," Moura told French newspaper L'Equipe when asked about his limited playing time. "I'm gutted that I'm no longer playing, to no longer be able to express myself as I was doing before. Moura, front right, in PSG training Credit: Reuters "I'm not happy. I thought I'd built something solid with this club, but that's clearly not the case." However, he also admitted that a move to Spain could be preferential. "It is true that La Liga could suit me," he added. "With my speed and technique, I could perform well there. "But it doesn't matter where I end up, I know what I'm capable of. I didn't become an international by chance." With the World Cup to come this summer, Moura will be keen on playing as much football as possible over the next five months. Meanwhile, Arsenal's hopes of signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January are said to have taken a hit after a disagreement over the fee with Borussia Dortmund.

There are also suggestions that Dortmund would prefer a player as part of the deal, with Olivier Giroud a possibility. Some of Manchester United's players have taken to social media to welcome Alexis Sanchez to the club, while also wishing Henrikh Mhitaryan well at Arsenal: Hello, Is That @Alexis_Sanchez ?���� Welcome To @ManUtd �� I Knew You Wanted To Come Milly Rock With The Mandem ������ #manchesterunited#JLingzpic.twitter.com/n7qJk73QhW— Jesse Lingard (@JesseLingard) January 22, 2018 Bienvenido @Alexis_Sanchez#Alexis7 ��— David de Gea (@D_DeGea) January 22, 2018 All the best, my friend ���� pic.twitter.com/6BhenuIc3f— Ashley Young (@youngy18) January 22, 2018 All the best & enjoy my friend ������������ https://t.co/LdqCoSI4jy— Juan Mata García (@juanmata8) January 22, 2018 A handful of Arsenal players welcomed Mkhitaryan to the Emirates, but were rather quieter about the departing Sanchez.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane rediscovers his touch after pep talk with Jurgen Klopp over derby mishap

Sadio Mane’s first year at Liverpool was ended by a knee injury in the Merseyside derby. This season he has just recovered from the mental wound suffered in the same fixture. Jurgen Klopp has revealed how affected Mane was by an error in the 1-1 draw with Everton in December. With Liverpool one up before half-time, Mane elected to shoot when team mates waited for a tap-in. That, Klopp believes, led to a dip in form. A managerial pep talk was needed to restore the African’s confidence. “After the Everton game when he didn’t pass the ball, everybody made a big criticism of him,” said Klopp. “I didn’t mention it to be honest. I didn’t mention it at half-time, I didn’t mention it after the game, it was not mentioned in any meeting because I saw in Sadio’s eyes that if he could turn the clock backwards he would do it.  “At that moment he was convinced he would score, he was a striker and a striker has to make a decision. I want him to make these decisions, but sometimes you have to accept that these decisions are wrong.  “I accept it, you have to accept it as well. So as long as you don’t do the same in the next 20 similar situations so that people start thinking, ‘what’s that about?’ that is no problem. You cannot play football without mistakes. He didn’t want to do it.  Now he is completely different again." It is a timely return to form for Mane after the sale of Philippe Coutinho Credit: Reuters Klopp hopes Mane's struggles are over. Last week’s display against Manchester City was his best for months.  “Of course we had talks,” said Klopp. “I like to be honest and I don’t want to say Sadio was brilliant when he wasn’t. Everyone could see that he struggled a bit. It didn’t look like it was too easy for him.  “How can I say to you what I told the player in a one-to-one meeting? It is not possible, but it was about what he did so far. Good, good, good, good, good; one or two things not that good, but the rest good.   “So lets build on that and ignore the rest. You cannot think all the time about your mistakes because that makes no sense. You cannot forget all the good things. “At Burnley he scored a fantastic goal but it was not a world class game of Sadio, Since then he is now really back, he works hard, he protects the ball, no risky dribbling and he is a world class player. The two goals he scored (against Burnley and Manchester City) – I don’t know a lot of players who could have scored these.” With Coutinho gone, it is a timely return to form. “It had nothing to do with Phil, but Sadio is one of the players who, for sure, can fill this gap if you want,” said Klopp. Liverpooltravelled to Swansea on Sunday ahead of Monday’s fixture, but despite his return to training Daniel Sturridge was not part of the squad. Sturridge’s Anfield career is drawing to an end, Inter Milan and Sevilla trying to secure a loan agreement. Inter have been in the more advanced discussions with the Liverpool hierarchy – their terms more favourable – but Sturridge has expressed a preference to move to La Liga. Liverpool will not let the striker leave unless the financial package is favourable – they will not subsidise Sturridge’s wages while he is loan. They would also prefer an agreement that leads to a permanent transfer. Klopp, meanwhile, continues to take a pragmatic view on the future of Emre Can who remains a focal point of his line-up despite his refusal to pledge his long-term future to the club. Klopp hopes such situations do not become frequent, but says it is difficult to prevent. “We have to make it as difficult, let me say it like this, for (players) to want to leave, but it still can, and probably will, happen,” he said.   “There are other places with football clubs as well. We cannot ignore that. In this age group maybe not all of them are one team players, or one club players.”
