Ancelotti wants to sign Werner from Chelsea

Sterling to replace Dembele at Barcelona?

With only a year left on his contract, Ousmane Dembele’s Barcelona future is under a cloud. Talks for a new deal have made little progress. The Frenchman’s situation has even reportedly captured the interest of Paris Saint-Germain.

Should Dembele leave, Barcelona believe Raheem Sterling could be an ideal replacement. The Manchester City winger may be open to a Camp Nou move after struggling to win over Pep Guardiola last season. [Sport]

Manchester United shortlist three Sancho alternatives

Arsenal close in on a deal for Onana

The Gunners are close to completing a deal to sign Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Pending the result of an appeal, Onana may have to wait until January or next summer to complete his Arsenal transfer. [Football London]
