- Ilkay Gundogan, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, has said he will soon make a decision about his future at Borussia Dortmund.

"I have not made a final decision yet. BVB are the first team I am talking to," he was quoted as saying by Bild.

"I will soon make a well-thought decision. But I am keeping my options open at this point. Borussia Dortmund have not set me an ultimatum. I am just trying to get healthy again and get back to my best form. That's the main priority for BVB and for myself."

- Liverpool are the latest club to enter the race for Porto midfielder Fernando, who has also been linked with Manchester United and Everton, according to the Daily Express.

- Reported Manchester United target Everton Ribeiro has been the subject of a failed €10million bid according to the Cruzeiro playmaker's agent.

"We did bring a €10m offer to Cruzeiro for Everton Ribeiro but we won't reveal the club in order not to affect the negotiations, after all they are in the middle of their season," Robson Ferreira told Lancenet.

"We presented the offer to Cruzeiro, we talked and we will schedule another meeting within the next days.

"The club want to keep him and the player also wants to help the club in the Copa Libertadores. We'll try to merge all the interests."

- Sebastian Giovinco has emerged as a possible transfer target for Arsenal, according to the Juventus forward's agent.

"Giovinco and Arsenal? There is a request for information but not an interest that goes beyond that," Claudio Pasqualin toldTuttomercatoweb.

"The occasion, however, it is useful to reiterate that Sebastian will remain at Juventus. It's nice there are interests of this type but they are destined to remain as such."

- Rafael and Fabio could both leave Manchester United at the end of the season, the defenders' agent has told Calciomercato.
