Today's transfer rumours features some juicy stories about some of the Premier League's top club, as Spurs close in on a first signing in a year, Manchester United could be about to lose one of their brightest young stars, and Manchester City are dealt a severe blow in their chase for an Ajax player.
Take a look:
United may lose highly rated youngster
Despite Ole Gunnar's Solskjaer willingness to give youth a chance during his brief time in charge at Old Trafford, it appears that United may be about to lose one of their most talented youngsters.
The Mirror are reporting that Josh Bohui could leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the season, with Barcelona and Monaco both interested in his services. He had been labelled by some as the 'new Andy Cole', with many holding high hopes for him at the club.
Spurs hoping to bring in Bundesliga midfielder this month
Despite financial restrictions due to the building of their new stadium, Spurs want to bring in some reinforcements during the January window. Their primary target is Hoffenheim's Florian Grillitsch according to Sky Sports, who has an £18million release clause in his contract.
With Mousa Dembele set to move to China, this rumour looks like it may have some legs.
Sean Dyche baffled by Tarkowski to Liverpool rumours
Liverpool have been linked with a surprise move for Burnley defender James Tarkowski, something that has baffled Clarets boss Sean Dyche. He has labelled the rumour as 'phantom stuff':
There are a lot of rumours out there, and not much fact. The most amazing one is the Tarky one. That is just bizarre.
It’s that time of the season, and everyone is looking for a snippet, but there is a lot of phantom stuff out there.
Unai Emery confirms Arsenal will only sign loan players this month
While Arsenal have been linked with a number of players (including Barcelona's Denis Suarez), manager Unai Emery says the club will not make any permanent signings this month:
We cannot make payments to sign players. We can only loan players.
I don’t know about his [Suarez] situation. But we can only sign players on loan.
I know the club is working to find players who can help us, with this condition. I know these players and they are very good players. But I cannot sign more.
Frenkie de Jong to stay at Ajax until at least the summer
Ajax have a number of prodigious talents in the squad at the moment, with Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong their two biggest assets. Both have been linked with January moves away from the clubs, with Barcelona and PSG leading the race for their signatures.
It appears that at least one of the players will still be in Amsterdam for the rest of the season, however, after Frenkie de Jong confirmed his intentions to remain at the club in a social media post. Manchester City had been heavily courting the player, but Pep Guardiola's attentions will now have to be turned elsewhere.
