Mauro Icardi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were among the major movers on Europe’s transfer deadline day, but Neymar, Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen all stayed put.
What the papers say Bobby Duncan could be leaving Liverpool for German giants Borussia Dortmund, the Daily Mirror reports. The 18-year-old has been at the centre of a dispute with the Reds after his agent accused Liverpool of “mentally bullying” the striker when a loan to Fiorentina was blocked. The England under-18 player had not left his room in four days and Liverpool had shown Duncan “zero consideration”, agent Saif Rubie said – though the club said they were “disappointed” by the “unfounded” allegations.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s availability for Arsenal’s Europa League trip to Qarabag is in doubt due to tensions between his homeland of Armenia and Azerbaijan.
