OX REJECTS CHELSEA FOR LIVERPOOL
Despite a fee being agreed between Arsenal and Chelsea, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain now wants to join Liverpool, according to the BBC.
Oxlade-Chamberlain wishes to play centrally, and his desire to leave Arsenal stemmed from Arsene Wenger deploying him at a wing-back position.
But the England international feels that Antonio Conte will also play him out wide at Chelsea, leaving him desiring a move to Jurgen Klopp's side instead. If no agreement can be reached, however, Oxlade-Chamberlain will stay at Arsenal.
AGUERO COULD SEEK MAN CITY EXIT
Sergio Aguero may seek to leave Manchester City this January if he continues to be overlooked by manager Pep Guardiola, according to the Manchester Evening News .
Aguero was left out of City's 2-1 win over AFC Bournemouth at the weekend, with Gabriel Jesus instead picked to lead the line.
City have had a £50 million bid rejected for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez but remain confident of signing the Chilean, meaning more competition for Aguero may soon arrive.
The club do not currently want to sell the 29-year-old, but are aware he may seek a transfer at the turn of the year if he is still down Guardiola's pecking order, particularly with the World Cup in Russia looming.

Everton initially valued Barkley at £50m but have now accepted they will not receive such an offer. However, they may hope that Tottenham - who hold a long-standing interest in the England international - now table a counter offer ahead of the deadline, with the potential of a bidding war looming large.
LEICESTER MAY SWAP GRAY FOR TOWNSEND
Leicester City could swap Demarai Gray for Andros Townsend before the transfer deadline, according to the Daily Mirror .

The striker has not returned to Chelsea since the summer break and has publicly criticised the club for the way they have treated him.

WEST BROM WIN KRYCHOWIAK RACE
West Brom have won the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, according to The Sun .

Monaco are set to make an €80 million offer for Andrea Belotti, according to La Stampa .

MONACO TARGET ARDA TURAN
Monaco have shown a late interest in signing Arda Turan this summer as the midfielder looks for a way out of Barcelona, Mundo Deportivo reports.
The 30-year-old has started just 23 of the 36 La Liga games he has played for the Catalan side since joining from Atletico Madrid. The Turkey international's agent, Jorge Mendes, has held talks with Barca over the Turkey international's future, with Galatasaray tipped as a potential destination.
However, Ligue 1 champions Monaco are looking to further add to their ranks amid a host of big-name departures and could make a move for Turan before the end of the window.
