What the papers say
Mesut Ozil will be staying with Arsenal for the time being, according to the the Evening Standard. The paper suggests the Gunners will wait until the end of the season to make a decision on his future. It is thought the 30-year-old’s desire is to remain at the Emirates long term rather than take up potential offers from overseas.
Tammy Abraham’s Chelsea future will need to be decided by January 14, according to the Telegraph. Currently on loan at Aston Villa but linked with a move to Wolves, the striker cannot be recalled by his parent club after that date, the paper claims.
Cardiff might need to battle Bournemouth for Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne, the Mail reports. Clyne is in the sights of Cardiff’s Neil Warnock after previously working together at Crystal Palace but the Cherries are on the hunt for a right-back to replace injured Adam Smith and Simon Francis until the end of the season.
Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata is wanted by Sevilla following the departure of Luis Muriel, according to the Mirror. It comes as the striker has struggled to find his form with Blues, scoring just seven times this season.
