Transfer Clock: Manchester United's Robben push, Arsenal want Mings to change position

Arjen Robben

Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, and West Ham feature.

27 days to go until the transfer window opens: Here's the lowdown on the developing stories you need to know...

1) Manchester United set aside £100-150m million for buys

Manchester United are being linked with a breathtaking splash on new signings this January and next summer. The top name linked is former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben, who Louis van Gaal coached for Bayern Munich and Holland. The Guardian report he would cost £40 million, with Dani Alves, Mats Hummels, Diego Godin and Kevin Strootman also on the list of targets. The one extra option is whether they buy Radamel Falcao permanently, and if not they would be in the market for a striker.

2) Newcastle's Sissoko linked to Arsenal and Chelsea

Chelsea and Arsenal are both monitoring Moussa Sissoko, according to The Mail. The French midfielder faces the Blues this weekend, and Alan Pardew told the paper he expects clubs will enquire after the box-to-box midfielder sooner or later. Sissoko is valued at around £15 million and would add steel to either midfield, although perhaps not an automatic starter for Chelsea in particular.

3) Arsenal see Mings as future centre-back

Arsenal want to sign Tyrone Mings from Ipswich - and turn him into a centre-back. The Gunners were first linked to the Ipswich Town star last month, who has been playing all season at left-back. The Telegraph report that an £8 million bid is expected in January. Mings' addition could pose questions over the future of Nacho Monreal, who has previously been linked with a move back to La Liga.

4) West Ham plan to sell Ravel Morrison

West Ham plan to cut ties with winger Ravel Morrison in January, two years after signing him. The England under-21 international has been on loan at Cardiff, but has not been in favour there, and has also suffered with injury. The Mirror report Burnley and Leicester may be interested in the signature of the former Manchester United trainee.
