Premier League transfer news: Gareth Bale to Liverpool, Luiz to Newcastle and more - 20th December 2017
Jingle bells! Jingle bells! Jingle all the way! Umid Dey is coming around with all the transfer rumours and I am here to enlighten you with some of the transfer news regarding the Premier League clubs.
The thing is, everyone wants to get a piece of the biggest clubs’ transfer rumours, but very few care about the midtable or lower midtable clubs and the players that they want to sell or buy. However, I am going to be their saviour and bring to you a wonderful amalgamation of transfer news of both the giants and not-so-giants clubs.
So here we go…
#1 David Luiz – Newcastle and Arsenal
David Luiz has been in a bit of rut ever since Antonio Conte figured out that he is perhaps not the player that the manager envisaged and Luiz has seemingly given up on him, at least that’s what Daily Mail understands.
According to the outlet, Rafa Benitez wants to bring the former Paris-Saint Germain defender on loan to the Saint James Park. The pair have worked before at Chelsea when the Spaniard was the interim manager at Stamford Bridge and is apparently keen on working with him again.
And then there is the competition from Arsenal for the former Benfica defender. Wenger is apparently ready to bid a good £25 million for the curly-haired Brazilian and will hope that his pursuit will put the Magpies’ chances in the rut.
And Chelsea’s stand? They are ready to stand, but only if they get a replacement first.
