The Gunners need a replacement for the injured Rob Holding

Arsenal are eyeing Manchester United's Eric Bailly and Chelsea veteran Gary Cahill as potential January replacements for Rob Holding, according to ESPN.

Centre-back Holding suffered cruciate ligament injury in the 2-2 draw with United last week and is expected to be out for the rest of the season.

The Belgian's contract expires in 2020 and he has been linked with a move to La Liga as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo

Eden Hazard insists Zinedine Zidane's departure from Real Madrid has not affected his admiration of the club and claims he will dictate any decisions on his future.

The Belgian winger has long been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu and his contract at Chelsea expires in 2020.

Zidane left the Spanish giants at the end of last season and was replaced by Julen Lopetegui, whose reign lasted only until October.

Former youth team manager Santiago Solari is now in charge of Real and Hazard insists the managerial change has not put him off.The 27-year-old told RMC, as quoted by Get French Football News:

 "I have always liked Real Madrid as a club, with or without Zidane.

At the end of this year I have 1 year left on my Chelsea contract. We will see, it'll be up to me to make the decision."

Hazard received plaudits after starring in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday. Despite impressing in a more central role in that game, the forward said City are still the best team in the league.

The result brought Chelsea within seven points of the champions, although they still sit fourth - two points behind Tottenham and eight back from table-toppers Liverpool.

Hazard has been frequently linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and is tipped to fill Cristiano Ronaldo's shoes in Madrid.

The winger has not shied away from the speculation, saying two months ago that it has been his dream to play for the Blancos since he was a child.

After a poor run at the start of the campaign saw Lopetegui lose his job, Madrid have struggled to recover under Solari and now sit fourth in La Liga.

 They travel to CSKA Moscow next for their final Champions League group game on Wednesday.

Chelsea meanwhile head to Hungarian side Vidi in the Europa League on Thursday before facing Brighton next weekend in the Premier League.

The Spaniard has warned his former side that the Argentine maestro will always give Barca the advantage, ahead of their trip to the Camp Nou

Ex-Tottenham midfielder Nayim has claimed that any side featuring Lionel Messi will always be favourites as Mauricio Pochettino’s side get ready to face Barcelona in a crucial Champions League clash on Tuesday night.

The midfielder joined Spurs from Barca in 1988 and went on to play 144 times for the Londoners, scoring 18 goals.

Pochettino’s side know that they must better Inter Milan’s result against PSV to ensure qualification for the knockout stages of the European competition, and are likely to need a victory.

But the Spaniard has warned his former club that any side boasting five-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi is bound to be at an advantage.

The Argentina international is already the leading goalscorer in the Champions League this season with six in three appearances and he produced a star turn during Barca's 4-2 win against Spurs at Wembley back in October.

In an exclusive interview with Goal, Nayim said: “Any team that has Leo is slightly more the favourite than the rest but in the end, he can not do it all by himself, it can happen that there are games that tie him very well and other teammates have to appear.

“Without a doubt, but there are other important teams that can win, Barcelona seems to have the Champions League as their main goal and until now I have seen how they are competing in Europe quite well.”

The 52-year-old added that should Barcelona fail to go into the match without the necessary intensity, Spurs still have a chance of a positive result: “It depends on how Barcelona comes in. If it goes as Tottenham should, it will be very difficult for them even though they are capable of winning, they are a very solid team with very dangerous players.

The midfielder has been dropped from Man Utd's XI for their last two games

Despite that, and Juventus' interest in a reunion, United do not want to sell their marquee midfielder as they still see a bright future for him at Old Trafford.
