The chasing pack for Dayot Upamecano has thinned out, while a move to England may be in Raphael Varane's future.

What the papers say

Liverpool and Manchester United have been given a boost in their pursuit of RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano. The Daily Mirror, citing a report from German publication Bild, says the 22-year-old will be too expensive for Bayern Munich to afford, leaving room for the two Premier League giants to battle it out for his signature.

The Manchester Evening News reports United have an opportunity to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid. The 27-year-old centre-back's valuation is believed to have dropped below the £100m-threshold the club previously claimed they would be willing to spend on a suitable fit for the position.

A host of English clubs have reportedly expressed an interest in making a move for Burnley's English midfielder Jack Cork. According to the Daily Mirror, Brighton, Newcastle and Sheffield United are circling the 31-year-old, who is out of contract at Turf Moor at the end of the season.

Real Madrid striker Mariano has reportedly been given the green light for a loan move to West Ham. The Daily Mail says Bernabeu boss Zinedine Zidane is prepared to let the 27-year-old go in January, with the Hammers believed to be a good fit for all the involved parties.
