The German shot stopper had joined the Turkish club on loan at the start of last season.

According to the specific report from Fanatik, Liverpool and Besiktas have agreed a £8m deal for Loris Karous.

Loris Karius didn’t have the best of starts at Besiktas but the former Mainz 05 was able to recover that bad start.

He joined Liverpool from German Bundesliga outfit Mainz 05 in 2017 and his last game for the Reds came during the 2018 Champions League final.

Loris Karius made two errors as Liverpool suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid who won three successive Champions League titles as a result.

Without Loris Karius in the Liverpool team, the Reds were able to go one better in the Champions League.

Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the Champions League final to secure a sixth European title.

Mohamed Salah and substitute Divock Origi scored the goals for Liverpool at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.

Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid have contacted Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang about a transfer when the season ends.

This is according to the report from The Times which said that Real Madrid are even willing to include one of their players in a possible deal for the unsettled Arsenal player.

It was revealed that Real Madrid have been in touch with the representatives of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over a transfer to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu next summer.

The former European champions have resolved to include Luka Jovic in a deal to sign Aubameyang.

Serbian international Luka Jovic has not been able to prove himself at Real Madrid as he has struggled for playing time under manager Zinedine Zidane.

Gabonese international Aubameyang has turned down a new contract offer at Arsenal to put his future at the Emirates Stadium in doubt.

He has 18 months left on his contract at Arsenal and the club is likely to be open to offers for the unsettled player if he doesn’t sign a new deal.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Arsenal at the start of last year and he has maintained his status as the leading goalscorer for the Gunners since his transfer from German club Borussia Dortmund.

David Luiz

Interim Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg has been advised to drop defender David Luiz from his starting XI for the upcoming league clash with fellow London side West Ham United.

Freddie Ljungberg was advised by former Arsenal teammate and fellow club legend Martin Keown.

According to the Daily Mail, Martin Keown said that interim Arsenal manager Ljungberg needs to drop David Luiz from his team or switch to a three-man defence because the Brazilian international likes to drop too deep thereby causing problem for the other defenders.

Arsenal signed David Luiz from fellow London side Chelsea in the summer for a fee believed to be around £8m.

David Luiz has played in all but one league game since his arrival from Chelsea in the summer.

The Brazilian international centre back was seen as the man to finally bring calm to the Arsenal defence but the opposite has been the case.

With David Luiz in the Arsenal XI, the team has kept just one clean sheet in 14 league games and that was the Bournemouth game at home.

David Luiz scored the only goal of the game as the Gunners beat Bournemouth 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium courtesy the first half strike from the Brazilian centre back.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will demand a huge compensation package from Arsenal for Nuno Espirito Santo to join them as their new manager.

This is according to the report from the Daily Mail which revealed that Wolves kept some details of the new contract signed by Nuno Espirito Santo last summer shortly after the Midlands club secured promotion to the Premier League.

Nuno Espirito Santo signed a three-year deal at Wolves until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Wolves didn’t talk about the clause of an additional year in the contract signed last summer.

Ex-Valencia boss Nuno Espirito Santo has done a very good job at Wolves and its not surprising that Arsenal are interested in him.

Arsenal have installed Freddie Ljungberg as an interim manager at the club on the back of the dismissal of Unai Emery last month.

Spanish tactician Unai Emery lost his job as the Arsenal manager amidst the winless run which stood at seven games before his exit.

That winless run has extended to nine matches following the Premier League games against Norwich City and Brighton and Hove Albion.

Arsenal played out a 2-2 draw with Norwich City last weekend in the first game under interim manager Freddie Ljungberg before losing 2-1 to the Seagulls at home on Thursday night.

Manchester City assistant manager Mikel Arteta and Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo were previously the top two favorites for the Arsenal job which is vacant after the dismissal of Unai Emery.

Spanish manager Unai Emery spent 18 months at Arsenal before his sack last week on Friday.

He was appointed the manager at Arsenal last summer as the replacement for legendary manager Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman spent 22 years at Arsenal before being replaced by Unai Emery who led the Gunners to the Europa League final in his first campaign at the Emirates Stadium.

Unai Emery and Arsenal were beaten by Chelsea in the Europa League final.

He departed Arsenal after a run of seven games without a win in all competitions namely the Premier League, the Europa League, and the Carabao Cup.

Wilfried Zaha

West London giants Chelsea are reportedly targeting five new players ahead of the January transfer window after their ban was lifted on Friday.

Chelsea were given a big boost following the news that they can now sign players as from the January transfer window.

The Blues didn’t sign players in the summer after world football’s governing body FIFA slammed them with a two-window transfer ban for breaking the rules relating to the signing of young players.

Chelsea appealed the ruling but it was thrown out by FIFA and that prompted the club to take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

The CAS verdict held on Friday partially upheld the ruling from FIFA but the transfer ban was reduced to just one window which has already been served.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blues are now targeting five players in the transfer window including Brentford star Said Benhrama who plays for the Algerian national team.

Others on the list include Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha and former Blues defender Nathan Ake.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is a top performer for his German club and he’s on the radar of Chelsea alongside Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell.

Arsenal sacked Unai Emery last week Friday and the search for a new manager is on though club legend Freddie Ljungberg has been placed in charge of the team for now.
