WEDNESDAY transfer done deals, Chelsea, Real Madrid and other updates
Here are the latest updates as clubs perfected their signings in the just concluded January transfer window and some other updates.
The 19-year-old ace has been at Celtic since February 2018 having previously played for Dungannon Swifts and Portadown but is yet to make a senior appearance in his professional career.
However, the Northern Ireland U21 stopper has done enough to catch the eye of the Reds, who have added him to their ranks.
Liam was involved in matchday squads at Celtic Park, but never made a senior team appearance during the 2019/20 campaign.
Hughes told the club’s official website: ‘The step up is always going to be challenging, but that’s what you want and what you expect at this club.
However, it appears Chelsea may miss out on the 28-year-old defender with his heart set on a move to Real Madrid. It comes as the German starts to formulate his summer targets with his new club. Blues have already been linked with Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund but a move might be too difficult this summer.
David is another on the club’s shortlist with a defender prioritized and Tuchel adores him. Austria international is out of contract at Bayern Munich this summer and no renewal is in sight. It means he is free to speak to foreign teams, giving the Blues an opportunity of landing him.
The Spaniard stayed put at Nou Camp over the summer despite being rumoured with a move elsewhere, although Puig is yet to start a game for Ronald Koeman this season.
Koeman recently dropped a hint that the Spanish playmaker has not been working hard enough in Blaugrana training, and now he is expected to be made available for a loan deal in January.
According to The Athletic, the Gunners have identified Puig as a potential solution to their lack of creativity, with the North London club keen to address their goalscoring problems heading into the second half of the current campaign.
Would you jump at the chance to earn millions of pounds every year while sitting on the comfort of your own backside? If the answer is ‘yes’, you’d be an ideal back-up goalkeeper for Barcelona.
The La Liga giants are on the lookout for a new second-choice shot-stopper after Norberto Neto grew tired of life on the sidelines.
There are a number of reasons why 2020/21 has been a struggle for the men from Molineux.
The departures of Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota have hit Nuno Epsirito Santo’s team hard, coupled with the injury-enforced absences of Raul Jimenez and Jonny Otto.
And then there’s the dramatic dip in form endured by some of Wolves’ other big-name stars, including Ruben Neves, Willy Boly, Rui Patricio and even the usually reliable Conor Coady.
