Football rumours from the media

What the papers say

Matteo Guendouzi’s time at Emirates Stadium could soon be coming to an end. The Daily Mirror reports the Arsenal midfielder is poised for a deadline day move to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.

The paper also says Tottenham are ready to make a last-gasp push for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar. Inter have reportedly placed a hefty £45m price tag on the 25-year-old, however Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is desperate to strengthen his defence and the club is desperately attempting to negotiate the wage bill down in order to get a deal done.

According to The Sun, Celtic have approached West Ham over a potential loan deal for Scottish midfielder Robert Snodgrass. While a loan move could be made before the deadline, the club is believed to also be open to a permanent deal for the lifelong Celtic fan.

The Daily Mirror reports Thomas Partey is set to stay at Atletico Madrid after Arsenal opted against paying the 27-year-old midfielder’s £45m buy-out clause.
