January transfer window – LIVE!
It’s been something of a slow start to the New Year window for obvious reasons as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to cause financial uncertainty across the Premier League and beyond.
However, deals are still expected to be made this month, with clubs and managers eager not to leave themselves too understrength for what promises to be a hectic second half to the 2020/21 campaign.
Chelsea look to have the edge on Manchester United – who could face interest from new PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino in Paul Pogba – in the race to sign Declan Rice, with reports that the West Ham midfielder would prefer to move to Stamford Bridge.
Both Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are also said to have a strong interest in French defender Dayot Upamecano, who may be allowed to leave RB Leipzig. Jesse Lingard is attracting interest from Inter Milan, meanwhile.
Tottenham have been linked with Real Madrid defender Eder Militao and Upamecano’s Leipzig team-mate Marcel Sabitzer, while West Ham are now said to be tracking Watford’s Ismaila Sarr and Mariano Diaz as they seek attacking reinforcements following the sale of Sebastien Haller to Ajax, but look to have missed out on Moussa Dembele.
Borussia Dortmund may be willing to sell Arsenal target Julian Brandt for the right price, while the Gunners could have to pay a sizable sum to offload Mesut Ozil.
Manchester City stalwart Fernandinho has received several offers ahead of becoming a free agent this summer and Liverpool are still waiting for good news with regards to David Alaba and Georginio Wijnaldum.
