Welcome back to the Evening Standard’s LIVE coverage of all the latest transfer news as clubs look ahead to the January window.
The domestic summer market finally closed for Premier League clubs in its entirety on Friday, 16 October, with the international window having already closed on October 5.
Chelsea spent over £200million in the summer window, and signings like Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Edouard Mendy are settling in well at Stamford Bridge with Barcelona youngster Alejandro Balde potentially next on the wishlist.
Arsenal arrivals such as Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes are also looking good – though Red Bull Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai is still said to be a target – and Tottenham fans are optimistic that Gareth Bale will become a key player as Spurs target silverware and potentially Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik in January.
Manchester United are struggling after failing to sign top targets like Jadon Sancho – but the Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund and England forward again, while talk of a sensational Cristiano Ronaldo return seems far-fetched but intriguing nonetheless.
As for Liverpool, serious injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez leave them short at the back – and Dayot Upamecano is a potential January option, with David Alaba and Nelson Semedo also linked.
