Arsenal’s Transfer Plans

The Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is expected to focus on loan deals in January, as the club looks to offload players before bringing in reinforcements due to a string of injuries. The focus will be on balancing the squad and making strategic moves in the transfer market.

Steve Cooper’s Potential Move

After his recent sacking at Nottingham Forest, Steve Cooper has emerged as a potential option for the Crystal Palace managerial position, as reported by The Daily Telegraph. This move comes as Roy Hodgson’s future with the club remains uncertain, making way for discussions on potential replacements.

Crystal Palace’s Transfer Interests

According to the Evening Standard, Crystal Palace has expressed interest in Paris St Germain striker Hugo Ekitike, 21, as well as Sunderland’s 21-year-old French midfielder Pierre Ekwah. These potential moves signal the club’s intentions to bolster its attacking options and midfield depth in the upcoming transfer window.
