Luke Shaw, Mauricio Pochettino to reunite at Tottenham Hotspur


With the January window on the horizon, there's plenty brewing in the transfer market. All the latest deals and potential deals can be found here.

TOP STORY: Shaw and Poch poised to reunite?

After a successful spell working under the management of Mauricio Pochettino at Southampton, it has been suggested more than once that Luke Shaw could team up with his old boss again.
Shaw has returned to fitness following a series of injury setbacks but has been unable to force his way back into Jose Mourinho's Manchester United side, with reports suggesting he could go out on loan when the window reopens in January.
And the Sun says that may well mean the left-back will be heading for Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur as he looks to put his recent frustrations behind him.
It says "a short-term deal for the 22-year-old is on the cards if United sign a new left-back," with Mourinho having said that although Shaw has a future at the club, "the situation is not easy because he comes from injury after injury."
But if the England international does end up leaving on loan a Spurs switch is by no means guaranteed, with the Sun saying they "would face plenty of competition" for his signature.
Meanwhile, talkSPORT, citing reports in Italy, says United face a scrap with AC Milan for 19-year-old RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.
Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal and Manchester United were all credited with an interest in Upamecano before he opted to move to the Bundesliga from Red Bull Salzburg in January.
United have been tipped to make a winter window bid -- but Milan are now thought increasingly likely to do the same themselves.

CSL clubs target Brighton's Hemed

Brighton striker Tomer Hemed could be on his way to the Chinese Super League, according to the Sun.
It says Shanghai Shenua "lead the chase among CSL sides for Hemed" because his likely value, around £5 million, means they would avoid a ruling that says a club spending more than £5.2m on a player must pay the same amount towards youth development.
Clubs are "eyeing Hemed for the next CSL campaign, starting in March," the report adds.
The 30-year-old Israel international, who is out of contract in the summer, stayed at Brighton after the Seagulls failed to land a number of attacking targets before the start of the season, having been wanted by Championship playoff finalists Reading.

Tap-ins

- Malmo forward Jo Inge Berget will be off to MLS club Orlando City when his contract expires at the end of the Swedish season, according to reports.
Expressen says Berget -- who has appeared increasingly likely to leave Malmo in recent months -- has been offered a deal by Orlando, with negotiations over a switch to Florida for the 27-year-old Norwegian under way.
- Bristol City, Nottingham Forest, Stoke and Swansea are all reported to be keen on signing Groningen striker Mimoun Mahi -- and it seems the Dutch club are prepared to let him go.
The Bristol Post says City, flying high in the Championship, had hoped to sign Mahi in the last window and will "be looking to strengthen their attacking ranks come January." He is thought likely to cost around £2m.
