Liverpool agree €55m deal for Riyad Mahrez

  Liverpool agree €55m deal for Riyad Mahrez Liverpool have agreed a fee of €55m (roughly £48.7m) with Leicester City for Riyad Mahrez, according to a report from beIN SPORTS in France. The Algerian, according to the report, will have a medical with the Reds tomorrow ahead of the move. Earlier today, it was reported by the Press Association that Liverpool were not interested in Mahrez and that they’d even contacted The Foxes to let them know that reports of their interest were wide of the mark. However, beIN seem to think differently and are reporting that the former PFA Player’s Player of the Year will indeed make a switch to Anfield as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho who is set to become a Barcelona player in a £142m deal.

Marko Arnautovic created three and scored the other as West Ham lifted themselves away from the Premier League relegation zone with a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town.

For the third successive away game, Arnautovic found the back of the net for the Hammers, his latest strike coming 11 seconds into the second half at the John Smith's Stadium.

The Austria international created the opener for Mark Noble midway through the first half, only for Joe Lolley to level things up with his first league goal of the campaign.

Huddersfield were not level for long, though, as Arnautovic stunned the home crowd with his sixth of the season, a powerful drive beyond Jonas Lossl.

Victory lifts the Hammers into 11th place in the table, above Huddersfield, while also giving David Moyes his 200th Premier League victory.

Huddersfield had the better of a competitive start with attacking trio Rajiv van La Parra, Tom Ince and Lolley leading the charge.

However, it was West Ham who broke the deadlock just before the half hour after a mistake by Lolley from Lossl's short goal kick.

Town's attempts to play the ball out backfired dramatically as Arnautovic and Noble applied pressure, the pair dispossessing Lolley before the latter slotted home.

West Ham listening to offers for Javier Hernandez

  West Ham listening to offers for Javier Hernandez Javier Hernandez was labelled as the marquee striker signing West Ham had been craving for years when he arrived for £17m from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer but the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star could be on the move just six months into his Hammers career. The Mirror are reporting that West Ham are ready to listen to offers for the Mexico international during the January transfer window following a tough start to the season. Chicharito has scored just four Premier League goals so far this season and has made only one Premier League start under David Moyes who insists he has faith in the diminutive striker to deliver. It’s well reported that the pair didn’t see eye-to-eye at Manchester United during Moyes’ brief stint in charge at Old Trafford and clearly he doesn’t favour the 29-year-old at the London Stadium either. Andy Carroll and Marko Arnautovic have been preferred as the central striker since Moyes took over in November, leaving Hernandez to wait for his opportunities off the bench. MLS outfit LA Galaxy have been linked with a move for Chicharito this month but it’s unknown whether the could meet West Ham’s demands. Hernandez isn’t the only striker who could leave this month with Diafra Sakho reportedly a target for Crystal Palace. David Moyes is looking to fund his own signings this month, with Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey, Bouremouth’s Harry Arter and Anderlecht’s Leander Dendoncker all on his wishlist, while out-of-favour Liverpool pair Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge, along with Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi, are all shortlisted as potential additions should the Hammers offload a forward this month.

Making such a mistake on his first home Premier League start could have easily affected the 25-year-old, but he responded in the perfect fashion by levelling things up before the break.

A neat Huddersfield move on the right ended up at Lolley's feet, he cut inside and was given plenty of time to curl a sumptuous shot out of Adrian's reach.

David Wagner's hopes of Huddersfield maintaining momentum in the early stages of the second half were quickly extinguished by a sensational Arnautovic strike from the kick-off.

A long ball from Angelo Ogbonna was flicked onto the Austrian by Cheikhou Kouyate, he lifted it over Tommy Smith and lashed beyond Lossl to restore West Ham's lead.

With the wind in their sails, West Ham pushed for a third and came within inches as Aaron Mooy cleared off the line after Lossl had failed to deal with an Aaron Cresswell corner.

And there was no respite as Lanzini put the game to bed with two strikes in quick succession.

His first came after a neat passing move that finished with Arnautovic slipping the Argentine in, Lanzini making no mistake from 15 yards.

As the clock ticked past the hour he had his second, this time profiting from Arnautovic's rapid counter attack to lift the ball beyond Lossl.

The introduction of new signing Alex Pritchard gave Huddersfield renewed hope, but there was nothing the former Norwich City man could do as Moyes celebrated his milestone win.

Chelsea make shock approach for Stoke striker Peter Crouch .
Chelsea are on the lookout for a target man this month and the latest name to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge is Peter Crouch. According to a report from the Telegraph, the Blues have lodged a surprise approach to Stoke City for their towering striker, as Antonio Conte aims to bolster his attacking options in the January transfer window. Chelsea have struggled in front of goal recently. Alvaro Morata is in a wretched spell of form, while Michy Batshuayi is also flattering to deceive in a Blues shirt. This has led Conte to explore other options, and a host of other targets have been linked. Chelsea are keen to sign Andy Carroll from West Ham but David Moyes is said to be holding out for £20m from the sale of the England international. Fernando Llorente, who Conte wanted in the summer, is also being linked with a move to the Blues from Tottenham. Crouch, 36, has enjoyed a successful career in the top flight and it seems he could be given the opportunity to play at a top six club for the last time in his career. It’s stated in the report that Chelsea would prefer to take Crouch on an initial loan deal, but are aware that Stoke would likely need to find a replacement before letting their gigantic striker leave.
