Denis Suarez (5th Jan)
Arsenal are reportedly close to sealing a deal for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez. The Gunners are seeking to continue the transformation of their squad that began in the summer, as they move further into ‘life after Arsene’. The acquisition of Suarez would go some way to creating a team carved in the image of new boss Unai Emery.
Franck Kessie (5th Jan)
The Cote D’Ivoire international has been linked with both Chelsea, Arsenal, and Spurs, and it seems he won’t be coming cheap to either club. Milan aren’t willing to let the midfielder walk for less than €45 million, and it may transpire that the buying club end up paying considerably more. The 22-year-old is one of the most sought after players in Europe, and could prove to be the missing link in the middle of the park for any side.
Mousa Dembele (5th Jan)
The Spurs midfielder has reportedly been offered a chance to join Beijing Sinobo Guoan of the Chinese Super League. Aged 31, and having missed large portions of this year with injury, there seems to be a reasonable chance the Belgian opts to head to Asia and cash in during the latter stages of his career.
Andreas Pereira (5th Jan)
Andreas Pereira is supposedly on the verge of leaving Manchester United on a free transfer. The 23-year-old is frustrated with the lack of first team opportunities being afforded to him, and has interest from Arsenal, West Ham, and Everton. In his quest to find regular Premier League football, the Brazilian has to this point turned down each fresh contract offer made to him by the Red Devils.

Reece Oxford (5th Jan)
The career of Reece Oxford looks set to take another interesting turn, with the revelation the defender will reject a permanent move to Borussia Monchengladbach in hope that he will complete a transfer to Arsenal in the summer. Aged 20, time is still very much on Oxford’s side, even if it does feel as though he’s been around for a while.
Adam Lallana (5th Jan)
Adam Lallana will not be following teammate Nathaniel Clyne in leaving Liverpool on loan. The midfielder has struggled for first team minutes so far this season, finding himself behind four or five colleagues in the pecking order.

Mesut Ozil (4th Jan)
Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil will wait until the end of the season before making any decision on his future. The German has been linked with moves away from the Gunners after failing to nail down a starting spot under Unai Emery. Italian outfit Inter had been linked with a January move, but the player’s huge wage demands are expected to prevent an exit in the near future.
Gonzalo Higuain (4th Jan)
Chelsea have once again decided against a move to sign Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentinian was linked with Chelsea in the summer and after failing to impress at AC Milan this season, he was touted as a potential target in January.

Mario Balotelli (4th Jan)
Newcastle are being linked with a shock move to sign ex-Manchester City and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli.

Dominic Solanke (1st Jan)
We have previously reported that the Liverpool striker is mulling an offer to join Crystal Palace on loan, but it has emerged today that the South Londoners are confident the England U21 star will make the move to Selhurst Park. Roy Hodgson is a man after a striker this January, and he’d do worse than adding Dominic Solanke.
Callum Hudson-Odoi (1st Jan)
Chelsea have rejected a £20 million bid for Callum Hudson-Odoi from Bayern Munich. The German champions have taken a liking to the 18-year-old, who has been on the periphery of Chelsea’s squad so far this season. A number of high profile European clubs have professed an interest in the forward, and a bidding war could ensue for his services.
Mesut Özil (1st Jan)
The play-maker is reportedly set to be offered a route out of Arsenal this January, but recent revelations have suggested the former German international is to stay and fight for his place in North London. Left out of the match-day squad for the 5-1 defeat against Liverpool, many had interpreted this as the sign the 30-year-old had said goodbye to his time as a Gunner.
Tom Heaton (1st Jan)
The Burnley shot-stopper has cooled suggestions he might be on his way out the door at Turf Moor, after making his first start in over a year in his side’s 2-0 win against West Ham.

Tammy Abraham (1st Jan)
The Aston Villa front-man is supposedly on the verge of having his loan spell in the West Midlands cut short by his parent club Chelsea. No less than four clubs are keen to sign the England U21 man in a permanent capacity, and the Blues seem willing to pay the cancellation fee to cash in on the Championship goal machine.
Jonny (1st Jan)
The Atletico Madrid loanee has impressed at Wolves this season, but the wide-man has insisted his long-term goal is to win a starting place back in the Spanish capital. Despite becoming something of a cult-hero in the Midlands, Jonny may not choose to stay a Wolves player beyond this season.
Mesut Ozil (31st Dec)
Arsenal are open to offers for forward Mesut Ozil but his £350,000-a-week wages will make any deal difficult to complete. Unai Emery has been reluctant to play the German in big games and as such, he could cash in on Ozil, get his salary off the books and use the money to invest in the squad if the Gunners can find an interested buyer.
Kostas Manolas (31st Dec)
Manchester United’s recruitment team are reportedly keen to sign Roma defender Kostas Manolas, but their management situation means a deal is unlikely to be completed until the end of the season.

Mesut Özil (22nd Dec)
Arsenal are said to be considering a swap deal involving Mesut Özil and Isco. The move – which would send the attacking midfielder back to Real Madrid, the club he left for North London back in 2013 – would also presumably include some kind of cash supplement from the Gunners, given the fact Isco is four years Özil’s junior. The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in recent months, and the floundering Los Blancos may choose to cut ties with the former Malaga youth product.
Gonzalo Higuain (22nd Dec)
Staying on the theme of swap deals, there is a suggestion Chelsea may attempt to use Alvaro Morata to lower the fee they’d need to cough up for Higuain. Morata has struggled in his short Chelsea career, finding his performances much derided by the Blue faithful.

Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri is supposedly set to try and reunite with full-back Danny Simpson, The right-back was a starter in Ranieri’s title-winning side at Leicester, and is out of contract at the King Power Stadium in the summer.

Cesc Fabregas (22nd Dec)
Thierry Henry is said to be keen on bringing Cesc Fabregas to Monaco. The Spaniard’s contract is set to expire at the end of the current season, but Henry would try to beat other clubs to the draw and tie down the Chelsea man in January.

Pascal Gross (22nd Dec)
Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross has played down rumours he is set to make a move to Liverpool in January. Typically, the German insisted he was happy on the south coast, and claims he has no idea where the speculation has come from. We’ll wait and see, I think…
Nabil Fekir (22nd Dec)
Nope, not Liverpool – it’s Chelsea who are supposedly interested in the Frenchman this time around. The Lyon captain came oh-so-close to a Reds move in the summer, before the move collapsed due to worries surrounding the World Cup winner’s knee. Chelsea seem willing to take their chances, however.

Everton’s director of football, Marcel Brands, has claimed that the Toffees will not pay £30m for Hirving Lozano, but would pay closer to £20m. The PSV winger, a Mexican international, looked every bit a £30m+ player at this year’s World Cup.
Lucas Perez (21st Dec)
Greek side Olympiacos have reportedly made contact with West Ham regarding the availability of Spanish striker Lucas Perez. The 30-year-old has been used very scarcely this season by Manuel Pellegrini and it would be no surprise if the forward was happy to leave the Hammers.
James McCarthy (21st Dec)
Fulham are supposedly eyeing a move for Everton midfielder James McCarthy next month, as Claudio Ranieri looks for options to bolster his squad somewhat. The Irishman has fallen out of favour under Marco Silva, helped little by Andre Gomes’ impact with the Toffees.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (19th Dec)
With the Toffees looking to offload a striker, it’s natural that they may want to bring one in – and Aleksandar Mitrovic is reportedly that man. Reports in Serbia suggest the Fulham striker has outgrown the club and his talent is going to waste at a club struggling for Premier League survival.

Paul Pogba (18th Dec)
With Paul Pogba frozen out of the Manchester United team under Jose Mourinho, it’s no surprise that Juventus feel they have an ever-increasing chance of signing the Frenchman.

This one will rumble on…

Neil Warnock could feasibly pick any part of his squad to upgrade, and he seems to have identified the right full-back position as top priority.
