Real Madrid considered sacking Zinedine Zidane, line up Mauricio Pochettino, Raul as replacement

Real Madrid plan to replace manager Zinedine Zidane after back-to-back defeats. Elsewhere, Liverpool could pay £50 million for Virgil van Dijk, Mesut Ozil could end his Arsenal nightmare by moving to Major League Soccer and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is aiming to win his first England cap.
Real Madrid line up Zidane replacement

Real Madrid are considering the possibility of replacing manager Zinedine Zidane despite being just weeks into the 2020-21 season, according to Spanish media outlet AS. Los Blancos have suffered back-to-back losses at the hands of newly-promoted Cadiz in La Liga and Shakhtar Donetsk in their opening Champions League group-stage match. AS reveal that there are two outstanding candidates to replace Zidane: Mauricio Pochettino and Raul. The Liga side's president Florentino Perez is said to favour club legend Raul, who is currently head coach of Real Madrid's Casilla side.

Liverpool to pay £50m for Van Dijk cover

Liverpool have been told they will have to cough up at least £50 million if they want to buy Ben White from Brighton in January. The Reds are in the hunt for a new centre-back following the news that Virgil van Dijk will miss the majority of the 2020-21 season due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which he suffered in the Merseyside derby last Saturday. 

White signed a new four-year deal at Brighton last month after the Seagulls rejected multiple bids from Leeds for the 23-year-old in the summer transfer window. The report states that the south-coast club wouldn't stand in White's way if one of the Premier League's 'Big Six' made an acceptable offer for the centre-back.

Ozil out? Potential destinations for the Arsenal star

The Sun have assessed Mesut Ozil's potential destinations after the World Cup winner was left out of Arsenal's Premier League squad for the 2020-21 season. The German hasn't featured for the Gunners since before the footballing world came to a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic back in March.

Ozil admitted he was "deeply disappointed" after being excluded from the Premier League squad, but his contract doesn't expire until next June. The Sun reveal that a Stateside move to the MLS is most likely, with DC United expressing their interest. Clubs from the United States, Portugal, Brazil and Qatar are able to sign Ozil before January due to extended summer transfer windows.

Wan-Bissaka wants to win England cap

Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is aiming to win a place in the upcoming England squad - over a year on from his first senior call-up, according to the Telegraph. The 22-year-old was included in the Three Lions squad in September 2019 but pulled out due to back a injury and has not received a call-up since. 

However, Wan-Bissaka is eyeing up a spot in the England squad ahead of next summer's European Championship. The uncapped United defender is eligible to represent DR Congo due to his heritage, but holds ambitions to play for his country of birth and has featured for England throughout the youth levels.
