Transfer Rumours Round-up
Frenkie De Jong (17th Jan)
Manchester City could be set to miss out on Ajax star Frenkie De Jong as PSG edge ever closer to signing the young Dutchman. It’s believed that the Netherlands international would rather join the Premier League side and play under Pep Guardiola, but the Ligue 1 champions are the only club willing to meet the £66m asking price.
Michy Batshuayi (17th Jan)
Chelsea are keen to sell striker Michy Batshuayi to Everton in a deal worth £40m, according to reports. Under Premier League rules, the Toffees are only able to permanently purchase the Belgian, as they already have Kurt Zouma on loan from Stamford Bridge. However, it’s thought the player is ‘desperate’ to join Monaco.
Maxi Gomez (17th Jan)
West Ham are lining up a move for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez, should Marko Arnautovic leave the club this month. The Hammers had interest in the Uruguay international last summer, but were put off by the 22-year-old’s price tag.
Alvaro Morata (17th Jan)
Atletico Madrid are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Alvaro Morata from Chelsea. The striker is valued at around £45m, however, it’s thought the initial deal will be a loan move for the Spaniard.
Divock Origi (17th Jan)

Scott McTominay (17th Jan)
Celtic are interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay on loan this month. The Scotsman had a breakthrough campaign last season as he made 23 appearances in all competitions under Jose Mourinho, plus picked up five senior caps for Scotland. He’s had far less impact this campaign, however.
Olivier Giroud (16th Jan)
Barcelona are reportedly looking to bolster their squad options this month, with Olivier Giroud being on their shortlist of players to sign. The Chelsea man has had a frustrating time of things since moving to Stamford Bridge, never really having the consistency in game time he’d have wanted.
Petr Cech (16th Jan)

Kiko Casilla (16th Jan)
Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla looks to be on his way to… Leeds United. Yes, you read that right! The 32-year-old missed training with the La Liga giants on Tuesday to fly to the UK for a medical at the Yorkshire club.
Daniel Sturridge (16th Jan)
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is entering the final months of his contract at Anfield. Reports suggest a number of Major League Soccer teams are eyeing a move for the 29-year-old when his time on Merseyside comes to an end.
Jack Clarke (16th Jan)
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is supposedly interested in signing Jack Clarke from Leeds. The 18-year-old has been impressive this year under Marcelo Bielsa, culminating in a top drawer performance against Derby County last week that certainly raised a few eyebrows…
Chris Mepham (16th Jan)
Bournemouth are reportedly prepared to offer £15m for Brentford centre-back Chris Mepham. The Wales international has also been linked with a move to Southampton and it’s thought Eddie Howe is keen to prevent that from happening.
Malcom (15th Jan)
With Harry Kane set to be out injured for at least a month, and Heung-min Son now away on international duty, Spurs are reportedly considering a loan move for Barcelona winger Malcom.
Mesut Ozil (15th Jan)

Eden Hazard (15th Jan)
Chelsea have named their price for Eden Hazard and it’s actually not as eye watering as you may imagine. Reports suggest £100m from Real Madrid will get the move over the line, should the Belgian inform the club he wishes to leave.
Mario Balotelli (15th Jan)
Ligue 1 side Marseille are still keen on signing Mario Balotelli but reports suggest they’re struggling to agree a salary with the Italian. The striker currently plays for Nice but his contract comes to an end in June this year. Why always him?
Leandro Paredes (15th Jan)
Chelsea have reportedly agreed terms with Argentina midfielder Leandro Paredes ahead of a potential move. The Blues are thought to have submitted a £27m bid to Zenit St Petersburg for the 24-year-old.
Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld (15th Jan)

Callum Wilson (14th Jan)
Bournemouth are willing to sell striker Callum Wilson to Chelsea for £75m, according to reports. It’s thought the Blues are keen on the Englishman, but it remains to be seen whether they’ll pay 25 times what the South Coast club paid for the 26-year-old back in 2014.
Nathan Ake (14th Jan)

Idrissa Gueye (14th Jan)

Tanguy Ndombele (14th Jan)

Milan Skriniar (14th Jan)
Reported Manchester United target Milan Skriniar is apparently “out of everybody’s price range” according to Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti. The Slovakian has been linked with a move to Old Trafford constantly in recent transfer windows.

Philippe Coutinho (13th Jan)

Allan (13th Jan)

Callum Hudson-Odoi (13th Jan)
Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has told the club that he wants to sign for Bayern Munich this month. Chelsea have rejected several offers from the German giants, but Hudson-Odoi is very keen on the switch to the Bundesliga – to follow the path of Jadon Sancho.
Gonzalo Higuain (13th Jan)
Chelsea have failed in their attempts to land Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain by offering Alvaro Morata in exchange. Juventus have rejected the deal, as they look for a transfer fee in return for the Argentine forward.

Denis Suarez (13th Jan)
Denis Suarez is poised to complete his move to Arsenal in the coming days. Arsenal are on the verge of sealing a loan deal for Suarez, with the view to a permanent signing in the summer. The Spanish midfielder has been heavily linked to Arsenal over the past few months.
Christian Eriksen (13th Jan)

Frenkie De Jong (13th Jan)
Tottenham are set to challenge PSG to the signing of Ajax star Frenkie De Jong. PSG have made an offer for the midfielder, with Tottenham now ready to match it. De Jong has impressed for Ajax over the past year and is regarded as one of the most promising young midfielders in Europe.
Aaron Ramsey (13th Jan)
Arsenal have placed a £18m price tag on Aaron Ramsey’s head this month, with Italian giants Juventus looking to sign the Welshman before the end of his contract at The Emirates. Ramsey has reportedly agreed terms with Juventus over a summer transfer.
Harry Kane (12th Jan)
The Spurs star has attracted serious interest from Real Madrid, but he won’t be making the move to Spain on the cheap. Reports are suggesting Los Blancos have been quoted a price of £310 million for the striker by the North Londoners, suggesting the La Liga giants will have to look elsewhere to find the successor to Karim Benzema.
Gonzalo Higuain (12th Jan)
Staying with goalscorers, Chelsea are reportedly still prioritising Gonzalo Higuain. The forward is currently on loan at Milan from Juventus, but would supposedly be available to sign permanently from the Serie A champions. Maurizio Sarri hasn’t given up on the hope of reuniting with the front-man in January.
Michy Batshuayi (12th Jan)
Michy Batshuayi has a route out of his present misery, supposedly. The Belgian striker has found life on loan at Valencia difficult, and Chelsea are apparently ready to sell him to Monaco on a permanent deal. Thierry Henry’s side have struggled for a regular source of goals this year, and Batshuayi could provide just that.
Yannick Carrasco (12th Jan)
Yannick Carrasco’s proposed move to Arsenal could stall over wage demands. Currently playing in the Chinese Super League, the Belgian winger is earning £170,000-per-week. Carrasco would stand to become one of the highest paid players at the Emirates if he was insistent he remain on that wage, else he might be left to play his trade in East Asia…
David Luiz (12th Jan)
David Luiz is reportedly set to return to Benfica should his deal be allowed to expire at Chelsea. The Blues are not understood to have offered the Brazilian international a new contract, and a free transfer back to Portugal is reportedly one of the likeliest outcomes for the 31-year-old’s immediate future.
Alvaro Morata (12th Jan)
Alvaro Morata is reportedly being watched by… Barcelona? The Catalan outfit are said to be in the market for a new striker, and the Chelsea man has been identified as a possible option. Morata would become the latest player in a litany of stars to have played for both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Kiko Casilla (12th Jan)
The veteran Real Madrid goalkeeper is being pursued by Leeds United. As the Championship club make their assault on the top spots of the division in an effort to gain promotion to the Premier League, it is no secret that they are keen to add an experienced shot-stopper to their ranks. Casilla, 32, was a Real Madrid youth product who spent some time at Espanyol, before returning to the Bernabeu in 2015.
Callum Wilson (12th Jan)
With numerous clubs harbouring for his star striker, Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has stated that Callum Wilson is not for sale at any price. It’s understandable why, too – the forward has scored just under a third of Bournemouth’s 31 Premier League goals this season.
Willian (11th Jan)
Chelsea have received an approach by Barcelona for their Brazilian winger Willian. The 30-year-old has been wanted by the Catalan giants for a number of windows now and was close to leaving during Antonio Conte’s spell at Stamford Bridge.
Malcom (11th Jan)
As part of Barcelona’s offer to Chelsea, the La Liga side have proposed that Malcom moves in the opposite direction. The 21-year-old doesn’t appear to have settled well since moving to the Nou Camp from Bordeaux.
Michy Batshuayi (11th Jan)
Everton are in the hunt for Michy Batshuayi as Toffees boss Marco Silva looks to add more firepower to his squad. Reports suggest, however, that the Merseysiders may only be keen on a deal if it can be a permanent one. Batshuayi’s loan deal at Valencia was cut short after a disappointing spell in La Liga.
Philippe Coutinho (11th Jan)
Barcelona could also be looking to offload Philippe Coutinho in the summer, with the Brazilian not being a big hit with the fan base. It’s thought that any sale would be in order to try and facilitate a return to Spain for Neymar.
Divock Origi (11th Jan)
Wolves are interested in signing Divock Origi from Liverpool. The Midlands club reportedly want another striker to add to their squad and the Belgian may be surplus to requirements at Anfield. The 23-year-old scored against Wanderers in this week’s FA Cup tie between the two sides.
Adrien Rabiot (11th Jan)
Bayern Munich are trying to hijack Barcelona’s deal for Adrien Rabiot, which was reportedly agreed last week. The Bundesliga side are looking into the possibility of signing him this month. The Frenchman is a free agent as of the summer and is keen to leave Paris Saint-Germain.
Odion Ighalo (11th Jan)
Odion Ighalo, remember him? The Nigerian reportedly wants to return to the Premier League during January, after leaving Watford back in 2017 to join Chinese Super League’s Changchun Yatai. The CSL side are apparently set on recouping the £20m they paid for the striker.
Shinji Okazaki (11th Jan)
Huddersfield have had a bid for Leicester City striker Shinji Okazaki turned down. David Wagner’s side have a clear issue with scoring goals and are supposedly keen to address the problem. The Foxes, however, do not want to lose the Japanese forward – for now at least.
Kalidou Koulibaly (10th Jan)
Real Madrid are looking to pip Manchester United to the signing of Kalidou Koulibaly and are reportedly preparing to offer around £90m for the Napoli centre-back. The Senegal international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for quite some time.
Declan Rice (10th Jan)
Manchester City have been looking for a Fernandinho replacement for a while now and it seems West Ham’s Declan Rice could be the man they’ve identified as the Brazilian’s successor. Pep Guardiola’s side will likely have to pay a handsome fee for the 19-year-old.
Aaron Ramsey (10th Jan)
Aaron Ramsey has reportedly agreed a deal worth £36m with Juventus and will join the Serie A club in June on a free transfer. The Welshman’s contract ends this summer and it’s thought Unai Emery made it clear he wasn’t part of his long-term plans.
Hector Herrera (10th Jan)

James Tarkowski (10th Jan)
Liverpool are considering a loan move for centre-back James Tarkowski, according to reports. Jurgen Klopp is severely depleted at the back, with three first team central defenders all out injured. However, Burnley have supposedly slapped a £50m price tag on his head to ward off any interest.

Mauro Icardi (9th Jan)
Mauro Icardi, the Inter Milan striker, is reportedly Roman Abramovich’s choice for a new front man, however, with the 25-year-old being top of his wish-list. The Chelsea owner supposedly wants to sign the forward during January and then offload the out of favour Alvaro Morata.
Tammy Abraham (9th Jan)
After turning down a move to Wolves on loan, opting to stay put at Aston Villa, for now at least, Crystal Palace are interested in offering the Englishman a loan move to Selhurst Park. Roy Hodgson’s side have been on the hunt for a striker throughout the window so far.
Callum Hudson-Odoi (9th Jan)
