According to new reports coming from Spain, Arsenal star player Mesut Ozil has agreed to a deal with Barcelona and will leave North London in the January transfer window.

Ozil is out of contract at Arsenal at the end of this season and will be available to sign as a free agent next summer if he failed to put pen on paper for a new deal.

And Catalunya Radio (via Metro) made it known that La Liga giants Barcelona have already held talks with the midfielder’s party, and a three-and-a-half-year deal has now been agreed by the two sides.

It was also added that Arsene Wenger’s side would accept a bid of €20 million (£17.7m) for Mesut next January instead of losing him for nothing when summer comes.

Barcelona were heavily linked with Liverpool’s Phillipe Coutinho during the summer transfer window, but the Anfield club didn’t sell him despite the huge bids from the Catalan giants.

The Camp Nou club are understood to be exploring potential alternatives to the samba star, and it was said that Mesut is their ‘Plan B’ should in case they won’t be able to get Countiho next year.

English Premier League outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has given the hint that his side will have some transfer activates when the winter transfer window is opened.

With few weeks to the opening of the window, the West London side have already been linked with a number of players that could eventually find their ways to the Stamford Bridge.

Having started on a very good note, the season is now becoming more difficult for the Blues team especially after they saw their first two consecutive defeats in the Premier League against Tottenham and Wolves respectively.

Chelsea were only encouraged and brought back into the title race when they defeated Premier League champions Manchester City at the last weekend.

The Italian boss is now ready to do some business but noted that he will not rush into buys and will not have too many additions in the winter window.

The Italian boss, therefore, stressed that what is most important is a change of mentality by his side that will help blend with the new way of playing before any addition.

However, while an addition is expected, suggestions are that a number of players will find their ways out of the club as a result of their lack of playing time under the former Napoli boss.

Chelsea fans

English Premier League side Chelsea are set to conclude the group stage of the Europa League against Videoton later on Thursday evening with the hope of having a perfect record.

The West London side have not lost any game so far in the competition and they will hope it continues despite already booking their place in the second round as group leaders.

More still, their host in Hungary are currently the third position and will only need a draw or win to qualify to the knockout stage which will definitely make the clash a good one to see.

However, Chelsea fans will not expect to see Kepa Arrizabalaga in between the sticks for the obvious reason that work has already been done which means Willy Caballero would be available.

Because of the expected fight from the home side, Sarri is likely to stick with a good side at the defence with Zappacosta, Christensen, Gary Cahill and Emerson.

Also, Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley and Ampadu could get the nod at the middle while Victor Moses, Alvaro Morata and Hudson-Odoi could also be considered in the attack.

Meanwhile, the West London side have had a good outing so far this season despite recently seeing two consecutive defeats in the Premier League against Tottenham and Wolves.

Mateo Kovacic

It was earlier expected that West London side will have a free run in their bid to sign Croatia international Mateo Kovacic on a permanent bid but that has changed with reports that London rivals Tottenham have already approached his owners Real Madrid.

Mateo Kovacic is currently on loan at the Stamford Bridge after failing to make the team at the Bernabeu and has impressed manager Maurizio Sarri which makes the club plan the idea of having him on a permanent deal.

With Real Madrid looking unsure about having Mateo Kovacic return back to Spain, Tottenham are making efforts to steal the opportunity and they are reported to have made inquiries about the player’s availability.

The North London side had no transfer deal in the last summer because of the financial commitment of the club on the new stadium and they seem to be storming the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks to have more additions.

Tottenham see Mateo Kovacic as a good fit for the club and they are hopeful they can convince him into staying at the club knowing that he has lots of competitors at the Stamford Bridge which he might not win at the end of the day.

Harry Wilson

Latest report hints that Liverpool have had a change of mind in their earlier plan to recall impressive winger Harry Wilson from his current loan spell at the EFL Championship outfit Derby County.

This was made public by the British daily broadsheet newspaper The Telegraph journalist John Percy.

Although a recall clause was inserted in Harry Wilson’s loan deal before his move to the Championship side it would not be activated for now according to the reliable journalist.

This, therefore, means that Harry Wilson will remain at the Pride Park for the remainder of the season in the EFL Championship as they wish he continues his development as a player.

The speculation of his recall came to limelight after seeing the 21-year-old talent impress for the Frank Lampard side with reports that the Reds’ management are already preparing to have him return to the Anfield.

Harry Wilson has scored a total of 8 goals so far this season and two assists in the 18 appearances under his belt.

The Liverpool team are now in real business as they see hope of winning a title this season. Therefore suggestions are that they will stick with their traditional trio at the attack and not bring in distractions.

Richarlison

Emerging reports indicate that West London side Chelsea are already keeping tabs on Everton star Richarlison with the hope of securing his signature.

The Brazilian has been impressive for the Toffees this season and he has caught the attention of big sides following his big-money move from Watford

Richarlison is known to be a technically gifted player who has blended with the rigorous demands of the English Premier League and has been tipped to make a success at the Stamford Bridge.

There are fears that Everton will have to let him go against their wish with the big interest and the luring offer that would be submitted for his signature.

Everton paid a whopping sum of £50 million for the signature of Richarlison which means the Blues will have to go more than that if they must have his signature.

The West London side are battling with the form of their forward as Spanish Pedro and Brazilian international Willian are not firing at the moment which gives manager Maurizio Sarri little concern.

However, the former Fluminense has had 14 appearances under his belt so far this season and has been able to deliver 7 goals with an assist to confirm his presence.
