Howe considers transfer of Cook
Eddie Howe cares about his former player Steve Cook, the captain of Bournemouth. The Sun report that the new Newcastle boss wants to sign Burnley’s Ben Mee or James Tarkowski, but if either of them turns out to be too expensive to sign in the winter transfer window then he will look to the defender of the championship to strengthen the defense.
Paper Round’s point of view: The Newcastle squad are woefully out of shape at the moment and bringing in Cook would at least be a quick fix. The player would know what to expect from the coach, and he would have more time to spend training other players who are less familiar with his approach to the game.

Paper Round’s point of view: Whatever the cause, Pogba has been a huge waste of United’s time and resources, and he needs to make the most of his talent.

Brighton continues to pursue Kozlowski
Brighton & Hove Albion are expected to continue their efforts to sign Kacper Kozlowski from Pogon Szczecin. The 18-year-old is already a Poland international and he could cost around £ 8million, according to the Mail. While other bigger teams are interested, if he moves to Brighton he is expected to spend time on loan at his sister club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.
Paper Round’s point of view: By sending Kozlowski to Belgium for half a season or more, they could expose the youngster to a quality improvement while also giving him the chance to step out of the Premier League spotlight. Brighton must continue to find bargains if they are to succeed against clubs with much larger budgets than theirs.
