What the papers say

The Sun reports 30-year-old Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has snubbed a new six-year contract, claiming the club are not showing him enough “respect” over wages. The paper reports Mendy, 30, earns around £100,000 a week and wants parity with his Blues rival Kepa Arrizabalaga whose salary is reportedly twice that amount.

The Mail, in a report citing Italian newspaper Repubblica, reports Arsenal are attempting to sign 27-year-old Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

Meanwhile, the Evening Standard reports Mikel Arteta is yet to decide whether or not to let 31-year-old Cedric Soares leave in January. Soares is reportedly being chased by Fulham and Bayer Leverkusen.

And the same paper writes Crystal Palace are considering re-signing 25-year-old defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United, three years after he moved to Old Trafford.
