    Ramsey's future in Turin continues to be called into question, with the Wales international thought to be available for transfer in the current window.

    Matic, meanwhile, still has two years left to run on his deal at Old Trafford, but the 33-year-old is down the pecking order when it comes to starting positions in the Man United midfield.

    Saints could step in while Burnley and Sheffield United have him further down their wanted lists.

    Clarets boss Sean Dyche may turn to him if the price is right as the summer transfer window is slowly coming to an end.

    Arsenal are struggling to sell tickets for their first home game of the season against Chelsea.

    The London derby is usually one of Arsenal's most anticipated matches of the season but there is a lack of enthusiasm amongst fans on this occasion.

    The Gunners opened their campaign with a dismal performance in a 2-0 loss to Premier League newcomers Brentford last week.

    And it seems apathy has set in amongst the fanbase, with large sections of the stadium still yet to be sold for Sunday's clash, per Arsenal's ticket website.

    It is possible many fans are expecting a loss to European champions Chelsea, despite Arsenal securing a league double over the Blues last season.

    Liverpool are sweating over the fitness of Trent Alexander-Arnold after the full-back seemed to pick up a knock in the closing stages of the Reds' 2-0 win against Burnley.

    After the final whistle blew at Anfield, BT Sport commentator Steve McManaman said: "He's just limping a bit, hopefully he'll be alright." in reference to Alexander-Arnold.

    The BT cameras didn't show the Liverpool right-back receiving any treatment, so Reds fans face a nervous wait to discover the extent of the apparent injury.

    The 22-year-old missed England's Euro 2020 campaign with a thigh injury after being injured late-on in a warm-up game against Austria.

    And Liverpool could do without the injury to Alexander-Arnold being of real note, with his fellow full-back Andy Robertson currently on the sidelines.
