DJALO IN MILAN TO SIGN CONTRACT

Teenage Sporting CP defender Tiago Djaló has arrived to sign his Milan contract, confirmed Sky Sport Italia.

“I am very happy. Forza Milan,” he told reporters at the airport.

The Portuguese talent is only 18 years old, but already considered a promising figure for his country.

His contract with Sporting was due to expire in June, so he was sold to Milan for a relatively low fee.

Lazio, Manchester United and Manchester City had also been tracking Tiago Djalo.

It’s reported Sporting included a clause ensuring Milan cannot sell him on to rivals Benfica and FC Porto.

Paris Saint Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot has emerged as a top transfer target for Real Madrid, according to Don Balon.

The Frenchman will leave the Parc Des Princes at the end of the season when his current contract expires, with a number of top European clubs chasing his signature.

Madrid president Florentino Perez is confident of winning the race to sign Rabiot though, with a potential deal mooted before the January window shuts.


MOSES TO FENERBAHCE OFFICIAL

Victor Moses has completed a loan move from Chelsea to Fenerbahce, as the Turkish club has announced on Friday.

The Nigerian full-back will spend six months at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium, after arriving in Istanbul on Wednesday.

Moses only managed to appear in two Premier League games for Chelsea during the first half of the season, falling out of favour under Maurizio Sarri.


DE LIGT COULD JOIN DE JONG AT BARCELONA

Matthijs de Ligt

Barcelona are exploring the possibility of signing Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Frenkie De Jong completed his move to the Camp Nou on Thursday from Ajax, but will remain at the Johan Cruyff Arena for the remainder of the current campaign.

De Ligt is keen to keep playing with his Dutch teammate beyond this season and Barca are thusly now lining up a potential bid for his services.


FROSINONE SECURE TROTTA

Frosinone have officially purchased striker Marcello Trotta from Sassuolo.

The 26-year-old completed the transfer this afternoon, having played only 95 minutes over two games for Sassuolo this season.

Trotta spent much of his early career in England with Manchester City and Fulham youth academies, Wycombe Wanderers, Watford, Brentford and Barnsley.

He never really made an impact since his return to Italy in January 2015 for Avellino, Sassuolo and Crotone.


CACERES TO REJOIN THE BIANCONERI

Juventus have reportedly agreed personal terms with Martin Caceres and must now negotiate his arrival with Lazio.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Juve ‘already have an economic agreement’ with Caceres, who had been on his way to Japanese side Vissel Kobe.

The Sky Sport Italia journalist explains a deal is getting ever closer and the two sides only need to settle on the terms of his transfer.

The Uruguayan played for the Old Lady during the 2009-10 campaign, before returning two years later and winning four Scudetti.

However, competition and injuries prevented the 31-year-old from becoming a first-team regular and he has gone on to play for Southampton, Verona and Lazio.

MILAN WANT DEULOFEU RETURN

AC Milan want to sign Gerard Deulofeu on loan in January, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Spaniard has spent time with the Serie A side previously, making 18 appearances in a loan spell during the 2016-17 season.

VALENCIA MAKE CHICHARITO MOVE

Valencia have made a move to sign West Ham forward Chicharito, according to the Marca.

The Liga club have lodged an initial €8 million (£7m/$9m) bid for the Mexican striker, although the Hammers are reportedly holding out for a figure of up to €14m (£12m/$16m).

ARSENAL WON’T LET JENKINSON LEAVE

Arsenal intend to keep Carl Jenkinson and block any loan approaches for the full-back before the winter deadline, claims The Mirror.

Burnley and West Brom are among those who had been hoping to take the 26-year-old on a short-term arrangement.


BEGOVIC COULD LEAVE BOURNEMOUTH

Asmir Begovic is open to offers after losing his place at Bournemouth, claims The Sun, with a number of Premier League sides considering an approach.

SANABRIA REPLACES PIATEK AT GENOA

Antonio Sanabria says he is excited about joining a ‘historic club’ in Genoa after arriving to complete his transfer from Real Betis.

Sanabria landed in Milan on Friday morning to take his Genoa medical and put pen to paper, having only scored Betis’ equaliser against Espanyol in the Copa del Rey the night before.

“I’m happy to be back in Italy,” the former Roma striker told Sky Sport Italia.

“I’m ready for this new adventure. Genoa are a good team and a historic club. I hope to do well with them.

“The fans? I want to meet them soon and I greet them all.”

The Grifone are expected to sign the 22-year-old on an 18-month loan with a €20m option to buy, 50 percent of which would go to Roma.


SCHELOTTO RETURNS TO SERIE A

Brighton and Hove Albion right-back Ezequiel Schelotto is on the verge of joining Chievo.

Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports Schelotto will undergo a medical with Chievo on Friday before signing a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old joined Brighton from Sporting CP in the summer of 2017 and made 20 Premier League appearances last season.

However, he has not played at all for the English side in 2018-19 and will join the Serie A team he most recently turned out for.

ARSENAL KEEN ON ADUERO

Pep Guardiola has admitted the centre-back has grown frustrated by his lack of game time at the Etihad Stadium, and Barca are set to offer him a way out.

LEIPZIG TO TIE DOWN WERNER

STURARO RE-JOINS GENOA

A statement on Juve’s website confirms Genoa will pay €1.5m to sign Sturaro on loan for the rest of the season.

GODIN SIGNS PRE-CONTRACT WITH INTER
