Christian Eriksen and Dayot Upamecano

What the papers say

Christian Eriksen is keen on a move to Paris St-Germain and would turn down offers from Premier League clubs, the Daily Star says. Eriksen, who left Tottenham for Inter Milan at the start of the year, is holding out for a call from the French side after failing to make a mark in Serie A, according to the paper.

Manchester United have calmed their interest in RB Leipzig’s DayotUpamecano, says the Daily Mirror. The 22-year-old is said to be keen on moving on from the Bundesliga side and has a £38million release clause and was one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top targets over the summer with United opting against a bid.

Sticking with Old Trafford, and left-back Brandon Williams could be leaving the club in January. The Daily Telegraph writes the 20-yaer-old academy graduate could be heading to Southampton on loan.
