Odion Ighalo, Ter Marc Andre ter Stegen and Nicolas Tagliafico are making headlines.

What the papers say

Manchester United will be looking to extend the loan deal for Odion Ighalo, who has scored four goals since arriving at Old Trafford from Shanghai Shenhua, reports the Daily Mirror.

Barcelona are struggling to convince Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to sign a new deal, reports the Daily Star. The 27-year-old is wanted by Chelsea who could be looking to find a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Sticking with the Stamford Bridge side, the club have given up their pursuit of Leicester's Ben Chilwell and have instead turned their attention to Nicolas Tagliafico who is currently on the books of Ajax, says the Daily Express.
