What the papers say

Thierry Henry is looking to reunite with Cesc Fabregas in January and bring the Chelsea man to Monaco, according to the Daily Mail. Fabregas’ deal at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer and he has only started one game in the Premier League so far this season.

Another potential Chelsea departure is Gary Cahill, with Claudio Ranieri looking to sign the defender on loan at Fulham, reports The Sun.

Celtic are looking at making a move for West Brom winger Oliver Burke, according to the Daily Mirror. The 21-year-old has found himself low in the pecking order at the Hawthorns since a move from RB Leipzig in 2017.

Inter Milan have got Manchester United defender Ashley Young in their sights and will be hoping to tempt the 33-year-old to Serie A over the summer, the Daily Mirror reports. Young has been at Old Trafford since 2011 but his deal expires over the summer.

West Ham are looking to sign Everton midfielder James McCarthy over the winter transfer window, the Daily Mail says.
