Winter done deals, Declan Rice, Grealish, Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United, others

Winter transfer window is booming as clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and others are moving to secure their targets.

Here are some done deals and other updates as they are being reported.

West Ham expecting bids for Chelsea target Declan Rice in January or the summer.
The Blues have been heavily linked with the West Ham United star for some time now. Despite a busy summer transfer window, Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia has been backed to sanction a move for Rice in the January window.
With the Blues going through a rough patch of form at the moment, bringing in a proven midfielder such as Rice would certainly aid our cause.

Crook has revealed that Frank Lampard thinks along the same lines and believes that Rice would improve his side.

Manchester United make £90m Jack Grealish transfer decision because of Paul Pogba

Manchester United’s move for Jack Grealish will only go ahead in the summer transfer window but cannot be completed unless Paul Pogba is sold. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge fan of the Aston Villa captain but the Red Devils will need a sizeable bid to tempt Dean Smith into a sale.

United have a plan to sign Grealish in the summer but it will involve selling Pogba.

The Frenchman looks set to call time on his Old Trafford career when the season is up with his contract expiring in the summer of 2022.

It will mean the Red Devils will have to axe the World Cup winner or face losing him for nothing.

Rather than go down that painful road, the club are desperate to recoup the £89m they spent on him back in 2016.

Arsenal accidentally unveil new signing Omar Rekik after he’s spotted in training

Arsenal are set to finally announce the transfer of Hertha Berlin centre-back Omar Rekik after the teenage defender was spotted in training with the club’s Under-23 side.

The Gunners agreed a fee worth around £900,000 with the Bundesliga side on deadline day of the summer transfer window as part of the talks that saw Matteo Guendouzi move to the German capital on loan.

However, Arsenal ran out of time to rubberstamp the deal and have had to wait until January to complete the final paperwork, with the fee now believed to have been negotiated down to £542,000.

The 19-year-old fuelled speculation that an announcement was imminent when he shared an image on Instagram of him touching down in London last month.

And it appears Rekik has been taking part in training with Arsenal’s development squad since then, with the youngster pictured in the background of an image of the Under-23s practicing on Wednesday.
