Hi Ed, is there any interest in ziyech? A really talented player in my opinion.

Im curious, it seems like there is no approach for him from top clubs in europe after his consistent performance in a few past seasons.

Or is he looking to move to a certain specific clubs/ league?

Thank you.

Ed002: He won't be moving this month and most clubs have stepped away from their previous interest in him due to baggage issues. Spurs considered him as one possible replacement for Eriksen but there is nothing to say they will make a move for him now. }.

Hi ED002, been watching plenty of Dortmund lately and a player that often plays well is Achraf Hakimi. Do Dortmund have an option to buy him or will Madrid be looking to play him next season?
Thank you for the info you give on this site, its much appreciated!

{Ed002's Note - He will probably be available with Dortmund and Munich already having discussions with Madrid.}

Hi eds,

Was wondering who Marseille are interested in?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Nathan Ferguson (CB/FB) versatile West Brom defender of interest to Milan, Marseille, Hamburg and Crystal Palace. Spurs interest will likely have gone with MP. Out of contract in the summer so clubs are seeing if a deal can be done in January for a low fee - else they can speak to him over a summer move (except Crystal Palace of course) aad sign a pre-contract agreement from January 1 and just pay compensation.
Faouzi Ghoulam (LB) Loan to buy to Marseille from Napoli - there have also been enquiries from Watford and Inter (who have taken to a different direction).

Hi Ed,

Can you share Bayern's potential targets for Jan and Summer Window

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - For the first team: GK, AM, RW, LW, S
Alexander Nübel (G) will replace Manuel Neuer as first choice
Marc-Andre Ter Stegen (G) - Plan B
Nelson Semedo
Kai Havertz (AM) Bayern Munich will likely move for KH if the option on Philippe Coutinho not taken up, but interest from elsewhere - particularly Barcelona (if Coutinho leaves), Manchester City (as a David Silva replacement) and Juventus. Interest of Milan will likely not go anywhere. Dortmund and PSG have both certainly spoken with his agent. Numerous other clubs have had scouts watch including Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid who have watched him on a number of occasions but either don't see the value in the price now or have other targets (where Chelsea and Real Madrid are concerned). Whether Liverpool wish to throw their hat in to the ring is another matter.
Emanuel Vignato (AM//RW) Chievo youngster who is attracting attention from Chelsea, Bayern Munich and a several Italian sides including Milan, Napoli, Torino and Inter. Torino have already been discounted as an option and troubles at Napoli, who he nearly joined in the summer may well remove them as well. He is behind Federico Chiesa for Inter.
Tahith Chong (RW) one for the future - MU don't want to sell but the player has concerns about having no mapped out future and MUs efforts to buy themselves back in to contention in the summer of 2019 - a tentative approach from Bayern Munich was turned away. BM may decide to look to TC again in 2020 as one potential long term replacement for Arjen Robben. Juventus have made his representatives aware of their interest in the player as well.
Leroy Sane (LW) BM have been unable to address the LW position in the summer of 2019 and added 30 year old Perisic as a short-term solution - the target remains Sane
Wilfried Zaha (W/F) BM has been approached to take WZ but they see the cost as very high.
Timo Werner (S) new deal to assist RBL so they do get a small return in the summer 2020 - plan is that he will join Bayern Munich for a fixed fee cicra €30M. RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud. He is also somwhere down the list for Manchester United. Bayern are concerned it is dragging on too long without a solution in sight and are now considering otehr solutions. Need to clear the decks to make it happen.
Lautaro Martinez (S) Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico, Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich have all scouted him but Atletico will be put off by the price and Barcelona, who see LM as a potential Suarez replacement will likely not be able to afford both him and Neymar. Bayern Munich still see him as an option to Timo Werner. Chelsea have a sustained interest and Manchester City see him as a potential Aguero replacement. Real Madrid are considering Werner as a cheaper option as they are also looking at a world record fee signing as well. If PSG lose Icardi to Juventus they could turn to LM but much will depend on the new coach.

Possible to get any outgoings?

{Ed002's Note - Manuel Neuer (G) will make way to Alexander Nübel as first choice and likely move on.
Jerome Boateng (CB) is available with agents actively seeking a new challenge - Pvard will return to cover for Sule at CB and a RB is arriving on loan to the summer.
Adrian Fein (DM/CB) Versatility may save him from being sold.
Thiago Alcantera (CM)
Philippe Coutinho (AM) will probably not take up option to buy as performances have been inconsistent.
Ivan Perisic (LW) will probably not take up option to buy if Sane arrives.
Thomas Muller (F) is miffed because he has been substituted on or off in most games but Bayern Munich will not sell him without a replacement and finding a suitable replacement is difficult - but they know they need to replace both TM and Lewandowski in the next year or two.}

Hi ed,

Is anyone interested in signing Paco Alcacer? I've read reports that Dortmund might let him leave.

{Ed002's Note - He is an option for Atletico if they cannot get their first choice.}

Ed, any truth in Liverpool being interested in Werner?

Ed002, possible to ask Ajax's plans this window and in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - Reinier Jesus (AM/CM) scratch him - heading elsewhere.
Roberto Alvarado (AM) Crystal Palace and Leicester City know that Ajax are already in talks with his club but interest from Spain could prove more attractive for the Mexican - although limitations on imported players are likely keeping the Spanish clubs at bay. The door is also open for Portuguese interest.
Calvin Stengs (RW)

Outbound:
Andre Onana (G) Fighting to keep him.
Donny van der Beek (CM) will leave in the summer for Real Madrid.
Siem de Jong (AM) out of contract.
Ryan Babel (LW) time has come and out of contract.
Hakim Ziyech (RW) will let him leave in the summer.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (S) time has come and out of contract.

Hi Ed, seems to be a lot of teams planning for big moves in the summer. Are you able you shed any light on potential PSG ins and outs? Love your work!

{Ed002's Note - Much will depend on what the new coach wants.

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen (G) If Kaylor Navas leaves
Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) PSG could make an approach - interest from elsewhere.
Tariq Lamptey (RB) will be able to speak with PSG in January regarding a summer move. Nice are already speaking directly with him. Chelsea are pressing for a new contract.
Ricardo Pereira (RWB) Spurs are keen as well but PSG would be a more attractive option - we'll see
Emre Can (DM) has been offered to PSG but they are not interested.
N'Golo Kante (DM/CM) PSG have enquired and are expection Real Madrid to also make an offer in the summer.
Sandro Tonali (DM/CM) - A player who was being chased by Conte at Chelsea as a 17 year old and has continued to be of interest but it won't go anywhere. There was interest in the summer of 2019 from Liverpool, but it was seen as futile and expensive and not followed up. His reluctance to leave Italy ended PSG and Chelsea interest and the price killed the interest of Milan. Inter and Juventus remain interested.
Reinier Jesus (AM/CM) scratch him - heading elsewhere.
Lucas Paqueta (AM) PSG are very keen but are a fair distance short of the €40M being requested by Milan for the player.
Christian Eriksen (AM/LW) versatility is attracting PSG to push for a Free Agent deal in the summer - Inter also remain very keen and will likely win out. An approach by Manchester United to buy Erksen may be viable in January – but the player wants Real Madrid but Real Madrid will only look to him if space can be made available in the squad - and the preference will be for the summer (but it is something his agent is working on). Juventus also retain an interest but he is not first choice - but their first choice looks unlikely. Mr Mourinho would like to keep him but is aware that all of these sides, except Manchester United, can speak directly with the player from January. Expectation is that he will join Conte at Inter.
Bilel Hassaini (RW) in limbo, scratch him.
Antoine Griezmann (W/F) potential Mbappe replacement who could be included in the Naymar deal.
Sadio Mane (LW/RW/F) another potential Neymar replacement - very unlikely
Everton Soares (LW) Neymar replacement but not even close on the money being asked for.
Mauro Icardi (S) will look to shun PSG and still seek a move to Juventus.
Lautaro Martinez (S) If PSG lose Icardi to Juventus they could turn to LM but much will depend on the new coach.

Outgoing:

Layvin Kurzawa (LWB) Spurs, Inter and Juventus see LK as a Free Agent option for the summer - Inter have been shunned by the player who prefers a move to England.
Tanguy Kouassi (CB) RBS and RBL both keen.
Moussa Sissako (CB) no long-term future at PSG.
Kylian Mbappe (W/F) first choice for Real Madrid.
Neymar (W/F) first choice for Barcelona.
Edison Cavani (S) Atletico have been in talks with PSG to take him in January.

Just a quick follow up if you don't mind Ed002. Is Mr. Tuchel looking to leave? If so, do PSG have a preferred option for the coaching role?

Hi Ed's, bit of an odd request, but am staying in France with an old friend right now, and he's a very devout Lille supporter. I was wondering if I could get a list of any potential incomings/ outgoings for them? Many thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Yari Verschaeren (AM) interesting Lille and Southampton, there may be efforts to seek a move in January for fear of Anderlecht facing sanctions.
Isaac Lihadji (RW) kiddie from Marseille who is attracting interest of several leading sides - will not be interested in joining MU but Arsenal and Spurs have spoken with his agent - much to the annoyance of Marseille. Lille, Borussia Dortmund and Valencia have put offers on the table and Borussia Mönchengladbach are likely to push in January. Common sense dictates he should sign a new contract and stay where he is.
In terms of interest:
Boubakary Soumare (CM) Real Madrid may push for a deal. Spurs, Napoli and Valencia have shown an interest.
Victor Osimhen (S/F) One particular Liverpool scout is pressing for the club to sign him. Barcelona have also shown an interest, but they have a financial issue to solve first - he only joined in the summer and Lille will resist any January bids - and it is hard to see why the player would consider a career on the bench. Spurs have looked at him and spoken with his agent. A senior Chelsea scout has also been watching the player who could be seen as an option to their primary striker target - but their need is for January rather than the summer. There was serious interest from Arsenal when he was much younger, but he opted for Wolfsburg.}

Hi Ed, Any interest in Lautaro, Belotti, aouar and jovic.

{Ed002's Note - (a) Barcelona and Real Madrid. (b) No. (c) Houssem Aouar (CM) Manchester City approached Lyon about Aouar and Ndombele last summer and it was made clear that only one of these two key players will be allowed to leave this past summer - Manchester City maintain an interest but he is not first choice, as do Juventus but the interest of Barcelona has gone. (d) No.}

Hi Ed, hope you enjoyed the festive season. was hoping you could tell me where you know of interest in both Diego Carlos and Sandro Tonali. the only thing i can find through searching is that inter were pushing for Tonali a while back.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos (CB) Manchester City have dropped their interest and are looking at others which will possibly be available to solve their issue in January. Real Madrid have a sustained interest (but he may not be first choice) and Liverpool has declared an interest in taking DC in the summer.

Sandro Tonali (DM/CM) - A player who was being chased by Conte at Chelsea as a 17 year old and has continued to be of interest but it won't go anywhere. There was interest in the summer of 2019 from Liverpool, but it was seen as futile and expensive and not followed up. His reluctance to leave Italy ended PSG interest and the price killed the interest of Milan. Inter and Juventus remain interested.}

Ed002, correct me if I am wrong, but I have heard that Sancho's agent is asking for a insane agent fee. Is this not in violation of FIFA's new rule which dictates what percentage of the transfer fee an agent can take as his commission?

{Ed002's Note - There are proposals to make a number of changes but FIFA has wrapped stuff together which means getting full agreement is an issue. I don't know what Sancho's agent has said. You would need to tell me.}

There are murmurs floating around that he is asking for 50 million euros in addition to the transfer fee of 120 million euros that Chelsea will have to pay for BVB. Of course, this is all hearsay and I usually try to avoid rumors which have financial aspects involved.

{Ed002's Note - I SEE.}

Hi Ed's - had a quick question if you didn't mind. I have noticed Timo Werners name being flirted about again recently in the press. I was wondering first of all if anyone was interested in him currently?

Second I was wondering why no one has made an effort to sign him previously? Every transfer window clubs look at him and he seems on the cusp of a move. he's a German international who is 23, has scored goals consistently and the prices suggested seems cheap by todays standards. Is there something I am missing?

{Ed002's Note - Timo Werner (S) RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud. Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid remain keen - but this could change quickly depending on other targets clubs have - for example Manchetser United. Interest of Dortmund has gone. There have been plenty of efforts to sign him in the past.}
