Real Madrid to offer Kovacic and Isco for Hazard

Real Madrid are preparing a player-exchange deal to secure the signature of Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard, Metro reports. They will offer both midfielder Mateo Kovacic – already on loan at Stamford Bridge – and forward Isco in order to secure the Belgian 28 year old. Isco is out of favour at Real under Santiago Solari and could move to find regular game time.

Paper Round’s view: If Kovacic settles into the club in his first season then including him in any deal for Hazard makes sense for both clubs. Additionally, Isco is getting nowhere in Spain at the moment, but there is no doubting his quality. As a result he could be a similar replacement in the squad for Chelsea, but they may have a particular player in mind for such an important role.

Monaco set for Dembele move

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele could move to Monaco when his contract is up at the end of the season. Dembele is injured until at least early 2019, and he has fallen behind both Harry Winks and Eric Dier in the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino. Monaco are struggling in the French league this season but could offer the 31 year old a huge salary increase to convince him to move.

Paper Round’s view: Dembele’s body seems to find it hard to keep up with the rigours of the Premier League, but while the talent on show in France is not as impressive as in England, it is often no less physical. Dembele will hardly turn down the chance of a huge wage increase but there may be alternative destinations to help extend his career.

PSG prepare Doucoure bid

Paris Saint-Germain could bid for Abdoulaye Doucoure in the January transfer window, with Watford looking for a sum of £45 million to let him go halfway through the season, according to the Daily Mail. Everton are also interested in the 25-year-old midfielder. Watford are considering potential replacements, and Huddersfield’s Philip Billing, Nice’s Adrien Tameze and Szymon Zurkowski from Polish side Gornik Zabrze could be options.

Paper Round’s view: At 25, this might be the last chance for Doucoure to make a move to a Champions League club while he is still young enough to improve significantly. £45m seems like a fair sum for the inconvenience of losing a player in the middle of a season. But Watford are run as a selling club so it would be no surprise if they have a viable alternative already lined up.

Spurs concern for Eriksen, could move for Aarons

Spurs could finally add to their squad this winter after failing to buy anyone in the summer transfer window, The Sun claims. They have identified 18-year-old Norwich right back Max Aarons as a target, and he could cost around £15 million. However, Norwich are financially secure, so could demand that Aarons is loaned back to the club upon completion of any move. The London club are also concerned that Christian Eriksen will not sign a new deal with 18 months left on his existing contract.

Paper Round’s view: Spurs have done well to identify potential across Europe and bring in players who go on to increase in value either to the side or when they are sold on. Aarons seems an impressive player who could go on to develop into someone who can play in defence for the club for the next decade.
