There is less than a week left in the January transfer window and all three of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are expected to be busy. Despite leading the Premier League, the Gunners have already snapped two players in the form of Leandro Trossard and Jakub Kiwior but are now said to be interested in midfielders.
Juventus star Weston McKennie has been linked but perhaps the bigger name is Brighton’s Moises Caicedo. The latter has already been the subject of a £55m offer from Chelsea, who are now thought to be pushing to sign Argentina star Enzo Fernandez once again amid reports of an £87m offer from Stamford Bridge.
Over at Tottenham, there is thought to be a fresh round of talks over the potential signing of top target Pedro Porro scheduled this week, while links with Nicolo Zaniolo continue. Follow all of the latest news, gossip and rumours below!
