Real draw up January shortlist

We start with a report that European champions Real Madrid are finalising their plans for the January transfer window. Santos striker Rodrygo has already agreed to join the club in the summer but he may be brought in earlier when he turns 18 in January as Real look to bolster their attack. The club are also considering moves for River Plate midfielder Exequiel Palacios and Espanyol defender Mario Hermoso.

Paper Round's view: These are hardly Galatico names that we are used to arriving at Real, perhaps a sign that times are changing? The moves mentioned are intelligent with regards to developing young players and securing the club's future. Perhaps it's always possible that Real are conserving funds to secure a big move for a certain Neymar in the summer... Who knows!?

Roma cast doubt over Ramsey move

We now move to quotes from Roma sporting director Monchi, who has cast doubt over a potential swap-deal involving their forward Patrik Schick and Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey. Monchi said the club had no interest in losing the promising 22-year-old Schick.
Paper Round's view: If Roma can't get Ramsey early then it seems unlikely they are going to be able to compete with the rest of Europe's elite in terms of Ramsey's wages. The Welshman would have been a good addition to their midfield but Schick has a lot of potential and the club could have suffered from losing him.

Prem trio eye Brahimi

We now have a report that says that Newcastle United, West Ham United and Everton are all interested in potentially signing Yacine Brahimi on a free when his contract with Porto expires at the end of the season. The 28-year-old Algerian international will be able to talk to clubs in January.
Paper Round's view: Brahimi still has plenty to offer despite approaching his 30s and he could be a fantastic addition to any of these sides. As the article itself points out Everton appear the favourites due to superior finances and footballing performance thus far. He would be the latest in smart cut-price deals from the Toffees.

Poch admits he helped design new Spurs stadium

We end with quotes from Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino who has revealed that he helped design the club's new stadium. He admitted to being surprised when chairman Daniel Levy asked him to get involved but conceded that there will be some aspects of the new stadium that Pochettino will use more than anyone.
Paper Round's view: There's certainly a slight shift happening with the narrative over the new stadium. Before it was this secretive thing that Spurs didn't want to talk about, now they're more open and seem more relaxed about the whole thing. That should be something that calms Spurs fans.
