Chelsea Prepare Record Bid For Griezmann
Chelsea certainly backed Antonio Conte this summer, but in January, the Blues could well make the leap from megaspenders to record breakers.
Chelsea want to land Antoine Griezmann, according to the Express, and it could involve a record-breaking fee that would exceed his buyout clause of £86 million and the amount Manchester United paid, £89 million, for Paul Pogba.
The move could be thrown into doubt with the news that Atletico Madrid are banned from signing players for two transfer windows, though, which would prevent Diego Costa from being used as a makeweight.
So, shattering the transfer record could be a necessity to beat out Manchester United, who are keen to add Pogba's France teammate too.
Fabregas to be shoved out the door in January
Cesc Fabregas has had to endure a spell on the Chelsea bench to start the season after Antonio Conte opted for Oscar's dynamism.
The Spaniard does not appear to feature in the Italian's plans for the Blues and that could mean a humiliating January exit, according to theExpress.
Serie A could be his next destination -- and Milan, especially, and Juventus, with a passing interest, are set to emerge as contenders for the former Arsenal and Barcelona star.
Arsenal to secure Ozil and Alexis
Arsenal's perilous position of constantly knocking on the door of success without breaking it down could be set for a huge boost by two of their key players committing to new deals.
The Mirror reports that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will pen new deals to pledge their long-term futures to the Emirates.
The pair have just two years left on their deals, but Arsene Wenger has seemingly convinced the pair to sign.
Juventus were monitoring Sanchez last summer, but now the Chile and Germany internationals could raise spirits at Arsenal for the year ahead.
Everton eye Watford skipper
It's been a quiet beginning to Farhad Moshiri's Everton era, but that could soon change with an audacious move for Troy Deeney in January.
The Sunday People believes that the Toffees are not put off by the Hornets captain's freshly signed five-year deal after Leicester failed with a £25 million offer.
Deeney has been a revelation since Watford were promoted to the Premier League, showing great versatility to thrive as both a No. 10 and a No. 9.
Manchester United are ready to pinch Juventus' wonder kid Grigoris Kastanos as they attempt to seal a reverse Paul Pogba deal, according to the Express.
The Cypriot midfielder has received rave reviews from Jose Mourinho's scouts and Juve want to set a £17 million buyout clause in the 18-year-old's new contract.
Sunderland, West Brom, Swansea and Southampton are lining up to sign former Juventus defender and free agent Martin Caceres, according to the People.
Chelsea are also on the radar, with Antonio Conte considering a move for his former player
