Transfer news round-up: Marco Reus linked with Manchester United; Mohamed Salah interested in Chelsea switch; Arsenal look to Seamus Coleman

A look at some of the more eye opening recent rumours from around the web

With Andy Carroll spending more time in the treatment room than a West Ham shirt, Sam Allardyce is on the look-out for some offensive options. Andre-Pierre Gignac, who appeared for Marseille against Arsenal in midweek, has been linked with a loan deal to Upton Park. The big 27-year-old has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and it could at last become a reality.

Another day, another midfielder on his way to Manchester United. David Moyes said in today's press conference that United will look to bring someone in, but only if they are the right calibre of player. Marco Reus is certainly in that bracket, and reports suggest scouts from United were sent to watch him in action for Borussia Dortmund recently. The Germany international is believed to have a release clause of £29m.

Fresh after scoring his second goal against them this season, Mohamed Salah indicated he would be open to switching sides and joining Chelsea. The Basel winger scored home and away in the Champions League games against the Blues, but has indicated he sees his future away from Switzerland. "I want to play for one of the best teams in the world. My favourites are Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea," he is quoted as saying.

Ramos was sent off in midweek - the 17th time in his Real Madrid career Ramos was sent off in midweek - the 17th time in his Real Madrid career Sergio Ramos has reportedly fallen out with Carlo Ancelotti, leading to speculation the defender could leave the Bernabeu. There would be a host of interested parties if that were the case, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United those immediately linked with the Spain international.

Bacary Sagna out of contract in the summer and Carl Jenkinson is yet to silence the doubters who question if he is the man to replace the Frenchman. He may not get a chance if the reports from TuttoMercato are true, because Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking to land Everton full-back Seamus Coleman. The attack minded Republic of Ireland international is in his fifth season at Everton after joining from Blackpool.
