German club Borussia Dortmund are eyeing Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas according to Bild. Despite already having Bundesliga winner Roman Weidenfeller on the books, Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is interested in the Spain captain and could make a move in the January transfer window. The 32-year-old Casillas has failed to figure at the Spanish capital this season, struggling to impress Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti despite retaining his place in the Spanish national team. But with next year's World Cup looming, Casillas could be tempted with a move to Germany. However, Premier League club Arsenal and Serie A giants AC Milan are also interested in luring Casillas.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba escaped Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger once before and he looks to have escaped him again. The Mirror is reporting that France international is set to dismiss any overtures by signing a new "double-your-money" contract with the Serie A champions. Pogba revealed that Arsenal, amongst a host of other clubs, were tracking him before he left Manchester United for Turin last year. And despite Wenger again perking his interest in the 20-year-old, Juventus are set to double Pogba's current £800,000-a-year deal.

And finally, the Mirror is reporting that Championship side Bolton are plotting a loan deal for West Bromwich Albion youngster Saido Berahino. The England under-21 striker scored a hat-trick for the Baggies in the Capital One Cup but is unlikely to figure in the Premier League. Bolton boss Dougie Freedman is eyeing Berahino as the perfect forward to drive his team to promotion.
