    Chelsea defender blow

    Chelsea captain Reece James has been hit with another devastating injury blow.

    And now the Telegraph claim that he is set to undergo major surgery in Finland.

    James is expected to be unavailable for three to four months, meaning his place Gareth Southgate's 23-man England squad for Euro 2024 is in jeopardy.

    The 24-year-old has already missed 11 games this season due to injury.

    Klopp admits Bowen admiration

    Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Jarrod Bowen is one of his favourite players besides his own team.

    Ahead of Liverpool’s clash with West Ham in the Carabao Cup, Klopp said: “They are good again, through in Europe, it’s really impressive. Injuries issues as well. Playing without Antonio, and Bowen steps up in that position.

    “[He is] probably my favourite player besides all my players, I have to say.“It’s great what he is doing and how he has developed.”

    Arsenal monitoring Inacio

    Arsenal are keeping tabs on Sporting Lisbon defender Goncalo Inacio.

    However, SunSport understands the Gunners are unlikely to be active in the January window in terms of both incomings and outgoings.

    Mikel Arteta’s side have battled several injury issues already this season, especially in defence with full-backs Jurrien Timber and Takehiro Tomiyasu out until the new year.

    Arteta and Arsenal are content with the defensive options they currently have, and would only be prepared to spend again should another serious injury crop up.

    Yet having splashed the cash in the summer – forking out a combined £170m on Declan Rice and Kai Havertz – the North Londoners would prefer to stick rather than twist.

    Centre back duo William Saliba and Gabriel are fully fit for now, while Jakub Kiwior and Ben White also provide alternative solutions in that position.

    However, Arteta is likely to prioritise reinforcements at the back in the summer with 22-year-old central defender Inacio someone the North Londoners are monitoring.

    United suggested striker move

    Paul Ince has claimed that Manchested United should rival Liverpool for Lautaor Martinez and Victor Osimhen.

    He told DAZN Bet: “Lautaro Martinez and Victor Osimhen would be two players who have been looked at by Premier League teams – particularly Osimhen, whose relationship with the Napoli owners has become a bit fragmented. 

    “Darwin Nunez and Rasmus Hojlund aren’t clinical finishers. Martinez and Osimhen are. 

    “Domenico Berardi would also be fantastic in the Premier League. Man Utd don’t have an identified striker at the moment as Martial, Rashford, and Hojlund have hardly scored this season! You need a striker who’ll get you at least 25 goals a season if you want to seriously challenge for trophies. 

    “Rashford achieved that last season by scoring 31 goals and it resulted in United getting a Champions League place. That’s how important a clinical scorer is. 

    “I’d say Nicolo Barella would also be a great fit. United need someone like him in midfield.”

    Posh star to be sold

    England Under-21 international Ronnie Edwards is certain to be sold by Peterborough next month.

    West Ham had two bids of around £4million turned down by Posh in the summer for their defender while Swansea failed with FOUR attempts.

    Everton have also been watching Edwards and the League One promotion-chasers are expecting a fee of at least £4.5million.

    Yet potentially, they will also want more than double that actual fee in add-ons.

    Apart from clubs in the Premier League and Championship, there is also one club in Germany and one in Belgium interested in the centre-back.

    Edwards, 20, who started his career at Barnet, has already played 113 times for Peterborough and is contracted until 2025.

    Neymar mistake

    Luis Suarez has revealed he believes Neymar made a mistake leaving Barcelona for PSG.

    The Uruguay legend told Clank!: "We were very good friends, and we knew if we fulfilled our roles on the pitch, we would make Barcelona great.

    "If one of us did not play well, the other two would make the difference. It was a spectacular relationship.

    "We told him it was a mistake to go to PSG. If Ney wanted to be the best, he had to stay by Leo’s side.

    "But, he made his decision, and it left a void in the team."

    United to pass on Amrabat transfer

    Man Utd are unlikely to keep Sofyan Amrabat at the end of the season, SunSport has learned.

    Erik Ten Hag is “already planning” for the player to return to Italy in the Summer.

    Sources at Old Trafford say there is widespread concern that Amrabat isn’t suited to the Premier League.

    An insider said: “Amrabat is very unlikely to stay at Manchester United after the Summer. They have an option to make the deal a permanent one, but as things stand the manager is not making plans to do that.

    “There’s no doubt that Amrabat is a good player, but there are question marks against whether he is the right fit for the Premier League.

    “He did very well in Italy but the pace of the game is very different and this is an area where he has struggled since arriving at United.

    “There may well be interest from other clubs in Europe but as things stand he won’t be staying at United.”
