It’s almost the weekend! But when it comes to transfers, there’s no sign of things taking any time off.


🦁 Domestic deals

Newcastle will return with a second loan approach for Jesse Lingard after Manchester United rejected their first offer and the Daily Mail believe that they are ‘optimistic’ he’ll move north before the window closes.

Tottenham are eyeing a late January swoop for Franck Kessié of Milan, per the Telegraph, as they aim to beat what is expected to be a closely-contested summer race for his signature.

In the Athletic, it is reported that Leeds have stepped up their pursuit of Salzburg forward Brenden Aaronson and submitted an improved offer of £20 million on Thursday night.

ESPN report that Arsenal are in discussions with New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner, which in turn could pave the way for number two Bernd Leno’s departure.

Burnley’s hopes of replacing top scorer Chris Wood in their battle to beat the drop have been dealt a blow, with several stories suggesting that free agent Andy Carroll has turned down a move to Turf Moor.


On the continent

After talks broke down between Tottenham and PSG regarding a Tanguy Ndombele-Leandro Paredes swap, Roma have now entered the race, with Sky Sport Italia claiming that José Mourinho is keen on a reunion with the midfielder.

In MARCA, it is stated that Sevilla remain very keen on signing Manchester United’s Anthony Martial but will move for his compatriot Moussa Dembélé if a deal cannot be reached with their prime target.

Sky Germany report that there is a new frontrunner for Denis Zakaria’s signature and perhaps unsurprisingly, it comes from Bundesliga leaders and champions Bayern Munich.


🗣 From the horse’s mouth

“There are some English clubs that have approached around [Dušan] Vlahović. A deal cannot turn into anything unless all parties agree but we are open to selling.”

A cast-iron confirmation from the Fiorentina camp, in the form of director Joe Barone speaking to La Nazione, that they could cash in on their prized asset this month.
