Transfer news LIVE: Aubameyang interest, Tottenham latest

Welcome to the 90min Friday live transfer blog – the place that will keep you up to date with all the breaking news throughout the day.

Just 11 days of the transfer window remain and there’s still plenty of time for signings to be completed across Europe – though as ever, negotiating in January is proving as difficult as ever.

Business does seem to be picking up, with a flurry of offers and rumours dominating Thursday’s headlines. Will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang really leave Arsenal? Is Tanguy Ndombele heading for the exit for Tottenham?

We don’t have the answers yet, but we do have the live blog to keep you up to date with every that’s going on. Follow below…

8:45am – Aubameyang offers

A couple of days ago, Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr lodged a loan bid for out-of-favour Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – who incidentally is ‘completely healthy’ after a heart scare at AFCON.

The 32-year-old has been stripped of the club captaincy and doesn’t seem to be too chummy with Mikel Arteta, with the feeling that a move could happen. But Sportsmail now say that Al-Hilal are also showing interest – and are prepared to pay his wages in full to make a deal happen.

That’s £350,000-per-week, ladies and gents…

8:30am – Lingard latest

Jesse Lingard’s future at Manchester United remains unclear.

Newcastle are desperate to bring him, and many others, to St James’ Park in order to save the club’s Premier League skin, but the Red Devils and Lingard himself need some convincing.

United want to sell, Newcastle will agree to a permanent deal or loan, and Lingard…well, he wants to decide his future in the summer. Will he move temporarily and then depart Old Trafford in the summer? The jury is out.

8:20am – All-action at Tottenham

It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours if you’re a Tottenham fan.

Steven Bergwijn’s dramatic late brace bagged three points at Leicester, Tanguy Ndombele was strongly linked with a move to PSG, and Wolves turned down a bid for Adama Traore.

Now, 90min understands that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who has been terrific form throughout the season, has agreed a two-year contract extension.

8:15am – Dembele’s Barcelona exit near

Things are a little messy between Barcelona and Ousmane Dembele now, but one thing seems certain – he’s leaving Camp Nou on a free transfer.

The big question is where next for a player who cost the Catalans well in excess of £100m?


8:10am – Good morning!
