What the papers say

A new deal appears to be in the offing for Mohamed Salah. The Mirror reports the forward’s agent flew into England on Saturday, prompting speculation talks will soon begin between the 29-year-old and Liverpool about a new £500,000-per-week contract.

The Mail cites Mundo Sportivo saying Barcelona have been “put off” in their plans to sign Ousmane Dembele to a new deal. The paper adds that move means Raheem Sterling leaving Manchester City on loan to the Spanish side is “growing more likely”

Ross Barkley could find a new home at Burnley, according to The Sun. The midfielder is getting limited time at Chelsea and the paper says he could go out on the loan in January.

Fiorentina and Serbia striker Dusan Vlahovic is a target for both Newcastle and Tottenham, according to The Sun. The Magpies have a big transfer kitty following their recent takeover and Spurs have made a stuttering start to the season.
