Guardian Rumour Mill

Ben Fisher

Back to the really important stuff, right? Manchester United have woken up feeling horribly smug because they fancy their chances of prising Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund next month and, despite rival clubs queuing up for the teenager, Ole Gunnar Solskjær believes he is first in line. It all bodes well for United, who also want to take Christian Eriksen from Tottenham, though they could have more trouble convincing the Dane that the bright lights of Manchester beats Madrid.

Chelsea are dead keen on Wilfried Zaha but Frank Lampard may have to shell out more than half of the £150m Roman Abramovich has set aside for January, with Crystal Palace demanding in excess of £80m for the winger. Failing that, it says here that Chelsea could exercise a handy buyback option to sign another Ivory Coast international: Sassuolo’s Jérémie Boga, who they could bring back to Stamford Bridge for a measly £3.5m. Barcelona, too, are said to be interested in the winger, so much so they have sent a delegation to Milan, a neutral venue, to make their feelings known.

Meanwhile manager tittle-tattle is in overflow, be it 72-year-old Harry Redknapp being vaunted for a return to the coalface with West Ham or talk that Pep Guardiola has a break clause in his contract which could see him depart Manchester City at the end of the season. Everton have had a chinwag with Unai Emery but, in truth, they would prefer a piece of Carlo Ancelotti, who was sacked by Napoli hours after guiding them to the Champions League knockout stages. Emery is keen on a swift return to the Premier League, while West Ham think they can land Mauricio Pochettino. If Arsenal or Everton capture Ancelotti, it says here that they would not have to pay any compensation for the Italian.

Elsewhere, John Terry could soon be teaching ponytailed Croatia defender Domagoj Vida the dark arts, with Aston Villa interested in bringing the Besiktas centre-back to Birmingham. Jack Rodwell, without a club since leaving Blackburn in the summer, is training with Sheffield United with a view to joining Chris Wilder’s side. As for Newcastle, it seems things are going so swimmingly under Steve Bruce that he is reluctant to rock the boat, therefore they may only plump for a loan signing or two in January. And the English Football League have discussed introducing a salary cap that they hope would prevent Championship clubs from breaking the bank in search of the Premier League’s riches.

West Ham sound out ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino with Manuel Pellegrini nearing axe

West Ham have hatched an ambitious plan as they look to lure Mauricio Pochettino to the London Stadium with Manuel Pellegrini a dead man walking

By Sam Meade

West Ham have sought out Mauricio Pochettino as they look to find the man to replace Manuel Pellegrini.

The Hammers have lost seven of their last nine and are just one point above the relegation zone leaving the Chilean on the brink.

But Pochettino has rebuffed West Ham's advances and maintains he won't be taking any job until the summer, reports the Mirror .

Tottenham ended their association with the Argentine last month after more than five years and he has already been linked with a host of vacancies around Europe.

Sealing Pochettino's signature would've been among the greatest signings in West Ham's history with Arsenal and Manchester United supposedly keeping tabs on the 47-year-old.

The Hammers exceeded expectations when they lured Pellegrini to the London Stadium, but he has been unable to take the club forward.

In each summer he has broken the club's transfer record on Felipe Anderson and Sebastien Haller, but that investment hasn't manifested itself on the pitch.

A host of managers have lost their jobs recently, one being Pochettino, as clubs and owners decide on whether to stick or twist ahead of the New Year.

Pellegrini is the favourite to be the next boss sacked and Monday's defeat at home to Arsenal will have done little to help his case, but he insists the threat of relegation is not on his mind.

“I am not worried about relegation, I am more worried about the last five games at home where we have had just one draw, conceding three goals in each game,” said the Chilean.

A contest with fellow strugglers Southampton is next up for the Hammers and defeat could spell the end for the former Manchester City manager.

Harry Redknapp has emerged as a surprise contender to take over on an interim basis despite being out of the game for more than two years.

West Ham United fail with Mauricio Pochettino approach?

Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly turned down an opportunity to become the new manager of West Ham United.

After a run of just one win from 10 matches in the Premier League, Manuel Pellegrini is on the brink of losing his job at the London Stadium.

With a 12-day break to follow Saturday's game at Southampton, the Hammers board are seemingly sounding out potential replacements for the Chilean.

However, despite a natural interest in Pochettino, The Mirror claims that West Ham have failed to tempt the former Tottenham Hotspur boss into a quick return to the dugout.

While Pochettino has recently suggested that he is open to taking on a new role as soon as possible, the report suggests that the Argentine will sit out the remainder of the campaign.
