The transfer window might be shut, but don’t think the wheeling and dealing won’t continue! Check out all the latest deals here.
Barca line up shock Chelsea bid
Andreas Christensen has been outstanding for Borussia Monchengladbach, on loan from Chelsea, so much so that Barcelona are now contemplating a bid, according to The Sun.
The Blues are bracing themselves for a £20 million offer from the Blaugrana with the talented Danish international likened to Gerard Pique for his ability to play out from the back.
Chelsea are yet to guarantee Christensen a starring role once he returns from his two-year stint in the Bundesliga, which could open up the possibility of accepting a lucrative offer as Antonio Conte eyes more experienced options to fix his defence.
Liverpool fending off Barcelona, PSG’s Coutinho push
Philippe Coutinho is one of Liverpool’s prized jewels and a key part to Jurgen Klopp’s exciting future at Anfield, with The Sun reporting that PSG are preparing a monster bid.
The People add that Barcelona are monitoring the situation too but that the Reds are desperately preparing a new and improved contract for the Brazilian wizard.
Klopp is reportedly also keen for Adam Lallana to pen new terms and commit his future to the club in a bid to maintain the core of his squad for the long term.
Mourinho readying Everton raid for Coleman
Manchester United appear short of a top quality right-back, with Antonio Valencia unable to curb his attacking instincts and Matteo Darmian failing to impress Jose Mourinho thus far.
The Portuguese will therefore look to acquire Everton’s Seamus Coleman in January, with The People suggesting the bid will be £16m.
David Moyes was rebuffed in his efforts to bring the Ireland international with him to Old Trafford three years ago, but Mourinho is hoping to succeed this time around for the 27-year-old.
Pochettino readies offer for Argentine Mammana
Emanuel Mammana is being targeted by Mauricio Pochettino, with The Mirror suggesting Tottenham are taking note after a fine start to the season by the defender.
Spurs are monitoring the Lyon starlet, who only arrived in France from River Plate this summer, with a view to activating a release clause.
The required fee is thought to be £9m, and the North Londoners could face competition from Spanish and Italian clubs.
– There will be a Merseyside derby to acquire Lille’s Soualiho Meite, with Liverpool and Everton both readying £6m bids for the midfielder, according to The Mirror.
The former France under-20 international is currently on loan at Zulte-Waregem, and West Ham are also ready to enter the race.
– David Moyes is eyeing up defenders Martin Hinteregger and Aleksandar Dragovic, with The People reporting that Sunderland sent scouts to watch the Austrian pair against Wales this week.
The Black Cats are long-term admirers, having registered an interest whilst Sam Allardyce was manager at the Stadium of Light, and they might now move again once the January transfer window opens.
