Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Monday, December 7.
Monday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
Chelsea are reportedly determined to bring Bayern Munich defender David Alaba to the club during the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old has still not penned a new contract at the Allianz Arena, and as it stands, he will be available on a free transfer at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
Alaba, if his situation remains unchanged, could enter into contract talks with foreign clubs at the start of 2021, and a number of teams are said to be interested in his services.
However, according to Bild, Chelsea want to sign him in January and hope that Bayern will be tempted to negotiate a mid-season deal with the Blues rather than risk losing him on a free transfer next summer.
Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Barcelona have also all been credited with an interest in the Austria international.
The versatile defender has made 15 appearances for Bayern during the 2020-21 campaign, while he has represented the Champions League holders over 400 times in all competitions.
Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil reportedly believes that he will still be able to secure a move to another top European club despite being frozen out in North London.
The ex-Germany international has been left out of Mikel Arteta's Premier League and Europa League squads - a decision which has raised eyebrows given Arsenal's distinct lack of creativity at the minute.
However, despite his suboptimal situation at the Emirates Stadium, Ozil is set to stay put in North London until his contract runs out in the summer of 2021.
According to The Mirror, Ozil still holds the belief that he can seek out an attractive move to another European club, although the playmaker would reportedly have to take a substantial pay cut for that to happen.
The report claims that Ozil could very well remain in the Premier League, but a move to Spain, Italy or the MLS could also be a realistic option for the 32-year-old in the not-so-distant future.
Ozil has registered 44 goals in 254 matches for the Gunners since his 2013 arrival from Real Madrid.
