What the papers say

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has blocked a move by West Ham to take Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan, the Daily Mirror reports. The midfielder is wanted by Manuel Pellegrini in the January transfer window but Sarri has ruled out the 22-year-old from going anywhere this season, the paper says.

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck is being eyed up by Crystal Palace, according to The Sun. The paper says the struggling side are weighing up a £10 million January bid for the 27-year-old, who is out of contract at the Emirates at the end of the season. Eagles boss Roy Hodgson is said to be keen on the England international to help bring the goals his team desperately needs.
