‘Determined’ Man Utd line up ambitious £40m second January signing, Liverpool to win ‘fight’ for off-radar striker and Aaron Ramsey question raised

These are your latest transfer rumours from the Premier League and beyond on January 6, 2022.

United ‘determined’ to sign Neves

The Sun report that Manchester United are “determined” to sign Wolves’ Ruben Neves this month.

Neves put United to the sword earlier this week, featuring prominently in the 1-0 win at Old Trafford to hand the visitors all three points.

A client of Jorge Mendes, Wolves will only listen to offers of more that £40million – with United at present only willing to stretch to £35million.

Asked about his own future in December, the midfielder added: “The future will be seen soon.

“I like to live in the present and I’m happy, I feel great in Wolverhampton and I’ll focus here, because if I do things right I’m sure the future will be bright.”

United are closing in on their first signing of the month, with Gazzetta dello Sport stating the Old Trafford club want Julian Alvarez to become Ralf Rangnick’s first acquisition.

Klopp in Muani fight

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is keen on Nantes’ Randal Kolo Muani.

The striker is a wanted man, though, with Eintracht Frankfurt and AC Milan also tracking him, according to Bild (via SportWitness ).

With Mohammad Salah and Sadio Mane away at the Africa Cup of Nations, the German boss is keen to bolster his forward options and having been quoted £60million for Luis Diaz, Muani has emerged as a target.

His family are said to favour a move to the Premier League of Serie A over the Bundesliga due to the money on offer.

Bild report that the German outfit will have to ‘fight with Klopp’ for the striker, who is out of contract in six months’ time, with Frankfurt accepting it will be tough to see off Liverpool and Milan’s riches

Reds to let Neco leave for right price

Sky Sports report that Liverpool will allow Neco Williams and Nat Phillips leave this month.

Wales star Williams has struggled for game-time at Anfield and is keen for minutes ahead of an important period for his international side.

Sky state that the Reds are in no rush to let him go, though, and will only listen to offers should a suitable one arrive. Loan or permanent moves are both on the table at this stage.

Phillips, meanwhile, has attracted interest from Serie A clubs.

Jordan’s Ramsey assessment

talkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan has urged caution over Newcastle United targeting Aaron Ramsey.

The Wales star will leave Juventus this month, with his time in Turin all but over.

The Magpies are said to be leading the chase for his signature and although Jordan believes the former Arsenal man is a quality player, he questioned whether he’s the right fit for a struggling side right now.

“Aaron Ramsey is a very good player, hence the reasons why he went to Italy in the first place and moved to Juve, it’s not because he’s a mug, it’s because he’s a very good player,” he said.

“If you’re going to sign Aaron Ramsey, and you’ve got some concerns about his fitness, I understand why in principle why you might not want to go to Burnley because he thinks his levels are bigger than that, Newcastle are obviously beneath Burnley in the league but there’s a spectre of how much money they’ve got.

“If Newcastle have got anything about them, Ramsey wouldn’t be a bad signing, but on some sort of deal that is reflective of his current physical condition and the risks that are attached to it.

“Whether that is as brutal as pay and play, because he probably wouldn’t take it, but something along those lines where he gets a kicker every time he makes a certain amount of appearances based on a reasonable salary, probably gives you a decent dynamic, but, we don’t know what he’s like now.

“On paper he looks like a good signing but Newcastle can’t muck about making, on paper, good signings. They’ve got to make good signings.

“Ultimately, this guy’s career isn’t in ascendancy, it’s in descendancy, hence the reasons why he’s not getting played, his period of time in Italy hasn’t been that great.

“He engineered a move out of Arsenal which was a free transfer, so all of the money went on his salary. I’m not sure he’s re-paid those people back those people who have taken him on.

“So coming into Newcastle at their stage might look like a good move, but if he’s not good enough because he’s no longer got the legs or is no longer physically capable, then he’s not a good signing.”
