- Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir admits it is "a pleasure" to learn of reported interest from Arsenal.

"Arsenal? It’s a pleasure to know that clubs are interested," the France Under-21 international was quoted as saying by Telefoot.

"But for now I’m well at OL.

"I’m an ambitious person. I hope I’ll get to play in a big club one day. It’s a dream. I hope I’ll be able to realise it someday."

- Real Madrid are willing to sell record signing and Manchester United target Gareth Bale in order to sign Chelsea ace Eden Hazard, according to the Daily Star.

- Steven Gerrard could be offered a lucrative deal at MLS club New York Red Bulls if he fails to sign a new contract at Liverpool, according to the Daily Mirror.

- Fernando Torres will remain at AC Milan beyond the January transfer window.

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani told Sky Italia: "I don't think he (Torres) will leave, even if the market is unpredictable."

He added: "Torres has been unlucky. He has struggled with injuries and is coming from a different league.

"We need to be patient. He is important and will probably return (to top form)."

- Arsenal are preparing to move for German defender Benedikt Howedes, according to Metro.

- Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini admits he is looking to sign new players during the January transfer window - but has denied reports suggesting he has spoken to Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli.

- Raphael Varane has revealed that he was close to signing for Manchester United before he joined Real Madrid.

"We were close to an agreement with Manchester United," Varane told Telefoot.

"My mother speaks English and this facilitated the translation.

"There was also an interesting project [on offer] but I made a choice for my career.

"I think I can go higher and mark my generation. I would be happy to tell myself I did the maximum and went as far as I could during my career."
