Premier League clubs enter transfer tussle for strikers and midfield talents

Posted : 24 December 2023

Manchester United and Aston Villa are engaged in a battle to secure the loan signing of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, with both teams eager to bolster their squads for UEFA Champions League contention next season. Manchester United, previously linked with other forwards like Mauro Icardi, Donyell Malen, and Serhou Guirassy, view Werner as a potential short-term solution to their scoring issues. However, Aston Villa, managed by Unai Emery, has entered the fray, competing with Manchester United to secure a loan deal for the 27-year-old German forward.


Dele Alli's future is the subject of negotiations between Everton and Tottenham. The terms of Alli's transfer from Tottenham to Everton in 2022 stipulate that a £10 million transfer fee would be triggered after he plays 20 games for Everton. Currently, Alli has played 13 games, and Everton is seeking to negotiate with Tottenham to potentially reduce or waive this payment. The ongoing discussions reflect the complexity of the deal between the two Premier League clubs regarding the talented English midfielder.


RC Strasbourg, affiliated with Chelsea as part of Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital's multi-club model, is reportedly considering a £22 million January transfer budget to sign players, including Boca Juniors teenager Valentin Barco. The 19-year-old midfielder, a target for Chelsea, could find a pathway into Mauricio Pochettino's first team at Stamford Bridge through Strasbourg. As part of BlueCo, Strasbourg aims to sign Under-23 players, and their significant transfer budget indicates their intent to strengthen the squad with promising talents like Barco, who is also sought after by Manchester City and Brighton.


Despite interest from West Ham and Tottenham, Chelsea is reportedly reluctant to part ways with midfielder Conor Gallagher. Although rumors suggest that Chelsea may be open to offers for the 23-year-old, manager Mauricio Pochettino emphasizes that Gallagher's future at the club will be determined by the player and the club. Gallagher, whose contract extends until 2025, has been a key figure in Chelsea's midfield, and any potential move in the January transfer window would depend on various factors, including compliance with Profit and Sustainability rules.
