    Nottingham Forest have reportedly opened talks to sign Giovanni Reyna and Carlos Borges on loan deals.

    After the club were charged with Profitability and Sustainability breaches by the Premier League earlier this month, Forest are likely to only enter the loan market this month, in fear of breaching the rules again after heavy spending in the summer.

    With Morgan Gibbs-White and Anthony Elanga recently joining Taiwo Awoniyi on the treatment table, manager Nuno Espirito Santo will be keen to add attacking reinforcements, with his side hovering ominously above the relegation zone.

    Firstly, David Ornstein claims that Forest are in talks with Borussia Dortmund over a move for USA international Reyna.

    Mason Greenwood‘s Manchester United career could allegedly be revived this summer, although the subject has reportedly not yet been discussed by the club’s incoming minority shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

    Having been informed last summer that his time at Man United was over, the forward moved on loan to Getafe, and he has impressed for the La Liga outfit during the 2023-24 campaign.

    The 22-year-old had scored five goals and registered four assists in 19 appearances for the capital club, including three goals and four assists in 16 La Liga appearances.

    Greenwood has a contract at Old Trafford until June 2025, though, and as it stands, he will be heading back to his parent club this summer, where a big decision on his future will need to be made.

    Manchester United attacker Facundo Pellistri‘s proposed loan switch to Granada has allegedly stalled due to the La Liga outfit only offering ‘a token contribution to his salary’.

    The Uruguay international is currently being heavily linked with a loan move away from Old Trafford, and it had been thought that Granada were closing in on his signature.

    Pellistri has experience of La Liga football, having represented Alaves on 35 occasions during two separate loan spells, with 33 of those outings coming in Spain’s top flight.

    Granada had Alvaro Fernandez on loan from Man United until earlier this month, with the Spaniard leaving the club in order to move to Benfica on an initial loan deal, which could become permanent this summer.

    Manchester United midfielder Dan Gore has made the move to League One outfit Port Vale on loan.

    The 19-year-old made his first-team debut for the Red Devils against Crystal Palace in the EFL Cup at the end of September, before featuring against Aston Villa in the Premier League on December 26.

    Gore has been a regular in the first-team squad this term, but it has been decided that his development would be best-served by spending the second half of the 2023-24 campaign on loan.

    Port Vale have won the race for his signature, and the teenager could be in line to make his debut for the club in Saturday’s home fixture with Portsmouth in League One.

    Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced that defender Yerson Mosquera has completed a loan move to Villarreal.

    When Mosquera arrived at Molineux in 2021, he was tipped to emerge as a key player over time, but the Colombian has been restricted to just one eight-minute appearance.

    However, throughout 2023, Mosquera was able to kick-start his career in MLS with FC Cincinnati, making a total of 35 appearances for a team that won the Eastern Conference.

    Although Cincinnati suffered heartbreak in the Conference Playoff Finals, the 22-year-old was able to return to the West Midlands having significantly enhanced his reputation.

    Yerson Mosquera joins Villarreal on loan from Wolves

    “Yerson had a fantastic loan at Cincinnati, being one of the highest performing centre backs in the league. What we’ve seen really excites us for next season,” said sporting director Matt Hobbs.

    “It was a difficult decision, as we could have kept him around, but we wanted him to get a bit more football week in, week out, ready to come back and fight for a starting spot next season.

    “He’s going to a big club, in a good league, with big games, which should secure more international football for him, so it’s almost a finishing school, before he comes back to compete here.

    “It’s a challenge – settling, getting used to a different league, a difference pace and type of football to the MLS. A player who can adapt and react quickly becomes a very well-rounded player, which will help us in the future.

    “Yerson’s extremely popular with the players here and they’ve been really impressed with how he’s returned – on and off the pitch he’s matured.

    “He understands the role better and his ability with one versus one defending has improved, which the players have commented on. Everyone’s been impressed by him, Gary, the players and the staff.

    “We’ve been very happy with his development. Cincinnati were great with him and we now have a strong relationship with them. They have outstanding facilities and worked hard with him, so have played a big role in it.

    “Our staff went to visit him regularly and the loan department watched his games, so he’s had excellent support and knows he’s important for our future. It’s worked fantastically well.

    “Now, go there, play, keep developing, and come back in the summer and we expect for him to compete for our team in the Premier League. The plan is the same, he had high potential when we signed him, and it’s been enhanced with what he’s done and the player he’s grown into. Come back in pre-season and fight to get in Gary’s team.”

    Al-Hilal midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is reportedly the latest player who wants to call time on his spell in the Saudi Pro League.

    Milinkovic-Savic is said to have expressed his desire to return to Italy when he met with the Lazio squad at Riyadh airport last weekend following their Supercoppa Italiana semi-final defeat to Inter Milan.

    Burnley striker Michael Obafemi is reportedly prepared to undergo a medical at Millwall ahead of a loan switch to the Championship club for the remainder of the season.

    The 23-year-old has played just 19 minutes of Premier League football for the Clarets this season, making substitute appearances in contests against Sheffield United and Arsenal.

    Obafemi only returned to first-team action in the middle of November after surgery on a hamstring injury sustained whilst on international duty with the Republic of Ireland in June.

    The forward spent the second half of the 2022-23 term on loan at Turf Moor from Swansea City before making the switch to Lancashire permanent in the summer, scoring two goals in the Championship last campaign as Vincent Kompany‘s men eased to the second-tier crown.

    Arsenal ‘willing to pay £64m for Porto forward Evanilson’

    Arsenal are reportedly willing to spend big money to sign Porto forward Evanilson during the summer transfer window.

    Although the Gunners were able to score five times against Crystal Palace at the weekend, their attack has generally been less prolific than their rivals in 2023-24.

    Despite scoring just six fewer Premier League goals than Manchester City, only eight strikes have come from the duo of Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nkeitah.

    As a result, there is an increasingly urgency to strengthen in the final third, and Arsenal’s preference would be to make a statement signing before the end of January.

    Napoli forward Victor Osimhen has hinted that he intends to take on a new challenge at the end of the season.

    Having scored 26 goals to help guide Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years during the last campaign, Osimhen has already cemented his legacy in Naples.

    However, their attempt to defend their top-flight crown has proven to be a disaster, Napoli down in ninth position in the standings and 21 points adrift of leaders Juventus.

    That has not stopped Osimhen recently penning a contract extension, keeping him tied to Napoli until 2026, but a release clause is believed to be present in his new deal.

    West Ham United have reportedly made the breakthrough in discussions with Manchester City over a loan deal for Kalvin Phillips.

    Despite costing £45m when joining from Leeds United in 2022, Phillips has rarely been provided with opportunities by Pep Guardiola.

    Just six of his 31 appearances in all competitions have come from the starting lineup, and Guardiola recently admitted that the situation is unlikely to change in Phillips’s favour.

    As a result, the England international has been heavily linked with a wide array of clubs, all aware that the 28-year-old is desperate for first-team football ahead of Euro 2024.

    AC Milan have reportedly suffered setbacks in pursuits to sign Premier League duo Jakub Kiwior and Trevoh Chalobah.

    Manager Stefano Pioli has said he would like to see a new central defender come through the door at San Siro this month, given their mounting injury crisis.

    Until Matteo Gabbia was recalled from his loan at Villarreal, Theo Hernandez was forced to play in the centre, due to injuries to Fikayo Tomori, Malick Thiaw and Pierre Kalulu.

    The shortage of defensive options at Pioli’s disposal saw Corriere dello Sport claim that the Rossoneri were exploring the opportunity to sign either Kiwior or Chalobah this month.

    Apart from three appearances for North Macedonia on the international stage, the 23-year-old has only turned out in reserve football this season.

    The Brazil international has been restricted to just one appearance this season, though, as he picked up a serious knee injury during the team’s La Liga opener against Athletic Bilbao back in August.

    Although reports have indicated that Matip may be handed fresh terms, a renewal would result in Liverpool entering 2023-24 with two key centre-backs at 33 years of age, the other being Virgil van Dijk.
