Newcastle getting excited over thoughts of Süle (Chronicle Live)
Newcastle United is getting a bit excited over the thought of being able to acquire Bayern Munich center-back Niklas Süle:
Newcastle keeping a close eye as Niklas Süle Bayern exit ‘as good as sealed.’
Reports from Sky Germany claim Niklas Süle’s transfer away from Bayern is “as good as sealed”. According to Sky transfer expert Marc Behrenbeck, the central defender must have an “image problem” as he cannot understand why the 26-year-old is underestimated.
The German international has found his game time inconsistent to say the least at the Allianz arena this season, but was voted in the best XI for the first half of the Bundesliga season. Reports in Germany claim the central defender ‘stabilises’ the Bayern defence but could be on his way out in January. According to Behrenbeck, Süle does not feel valued at Bayern and it will be “difficult or even impossible to convince him to extend his contract. His departure is as good as sealed.”

Perisic could extend with Inter (Transfer Market Web)
Inter Milan might not be so quick to get rid of former Bayern Munich winger Ivan Perisic after all. In fact, Inter is allegedly thinking of bringing Perisic back:
More and more of a powerhouse for Inter Milan, as well as an “apple” of Simone Inzaghi’s eye, 32-year old Croatian international winger Ivan Perisic, recently deployed as a wide midfielder for the most part, might end up extending for Serie A defending champions.
Former Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund player has in fact been offered a further 2-year deal, beyond current June 2022 deadline, though on a wage cheaper than his current 5 million euros annual salary one.

Uhso what do we do now?
Bayern’s offense was ridiculous in the Hinrunde (@WhoScored)
Seriously, this is crazy. Bayern Munich has had an unbelievable offensive showing:
Aubameyang making the move to Spain? (Sport1)
Former Borussia Dortmund Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks to be headed away from Arsenal FC after his captaincy was stripped:
Real Madrid and FC Barcelona were considered the big dream goals of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when he was always a constant topic in transfer rumors towards the end of his BVB time.
In the end, the controversial attacker did not move to a giant in La Liga, but to Arsenal FC. There is now a lot of anger about “Auba” - but this could mean that his dream of Spain is now fulfilled with some delay.
Newcastle vs Man City final score: Cancelo, Mahrez conjure magic
Joao Cancelo and Riyad Mahrez each had a goal and an assist as Manchester City continued its cruise through the Premier League with a 4-0 win at Newcastle,[ EXCLUSIVE: JPW chats with Jack Grealish ]
Because after the striker recently lost his captain’s armband as a disciplinary measure, the “Gunners” should think about a spectacular swap deal with Barca.
As Football.London reports, Arsenal are open to an exit from Aubameyang, who obviously misjudged coach Mikel Arteta and was not used at all recently. A swap with Barca could be the best solution for all sides, especially as the Catalans could still use a striker. Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembélé are named as candidates for a move to London.

LFC eyeing “Colombian Ronaldo” (Sport1)
Liverpool is reportedly eyeing a player described as the “Colombian Cristiano Ronaldo”. Okay, then.
Bayern Munich and Manchester United are also said to be interested as well. If you remember, the Bavarians were linked to Diaz just a few weeks ago:
According to the English magazine FourFourTwo , the team of coach Jürgen Klopp is showing great interest in Luis Díaz from FC Porto, who is also known as the “Colombian Cristiano Ronaldo”.
Since Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah are traveling to the Africa Cup in early January 2022, a replacement would be very welcome, although Klopp should be ready to dig deeper into their own squad and find options.
The 24-year-old Díaz has 23 games and 14 goals this season. In addition, he put on four more hits.
According to the report, Manchester United and FC Bayern are also watching the offensive man of FC Porto, whose contract runs until 2024.
However, it is unlikely that Díaz will change in winter. FC Porto don’t want to lose their top performers in the middle of the season, and the Colombian would have to pay a high transfer fee.
