PSG to beat Real Madrid for Eriksen

Paris Saint-Germain are plotting a huge move to snap up Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen from under the noses of Real Madrid, the Daily Mail are reporting.

The French champions are willing to completely revamp their midfield in order to land the 27-year-old and are prepared to part with World Cup winner Julian Draxler and £22.5m signing Leandro Paredes to accommodate their star man.

The Danish superstar has become frustrated at Spurs and recently turned down a new deal. Eriksen's current contract expires in the summer, which could tempt the Premier League side to cash in on the player man in January.

Perhaps more interestingly, current regulations allow Eriksen to sign a pre-contract agreement outside of England in January, which could tempt the midfielder to hold out until the end of the season. PSG are no strangers to splashing the cash, and Les Parisiens are believed to be preparing a lucrative to land their man.

Man United keen on Aston Villa's McGinn

Manchester United are keen to sign Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn, according to the Express.

The Scotland international lit up the Championship last season and signed a new long-term deal in the summer amid speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

McGinn has since enjoyed a bright start to life in the Premier League, netting on the road at both Arsenal and Tottenham which has reignited interest from the Red Devils, who have frequently struggled for both depth and creativity in midfield.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to see McGinn as the perfect solution to that problem, but any move may prove tricky with Villa boss Dean Smith insisting his prized asset is not for sale.

PSG interested in AC Milan's Donnarumma

PSG have moved up a gear in their pursuit of AC Milan star Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to French paper L'Equipe.

The Italian giants look like they will be forced into parting with some of their biggest assets as they look to clear €146 million of debt, with PSG strongly tipped to be the frontrunners to land the highly-rated shot-stopper.

In a new development, Les Parisiens are believed to be prepared to offer a like-for-like replacement in a player-plus-cash deal that would see Alphonse Areola, currently on loan at Real Madrid, heading to the San Siro.

Tap-Ins

- LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted at a possible return to Italy as the 38-year-old seeks a fresh challenge to keep his love of football alive, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Marca). The towering Swede -- who has already represented Juventus, AC Milan and Inter -- has described the country as his "second home" and appears to have set his sights on a move to Napoli.

- Roma and Argentina midfielder Javier Pastore could be the latest player to be tempted by a move to China, Calciomercato are reporting.
