JADON CAN GO?
Borussia Dortmund are making preparations for in-demand Jadon Sancho's departure.
Sancho has been heavily linked with a move away from Germany in the summer, with Chelsea rumoured to be his preferred destination.
And it looks like the Bundesliga club are resigned to losing the 19-year-old as they begin the search for his replacement.
Gremio's Everton, 23, who has previously been linked with Premier League sides Arsenal and – would you believe it – Everton, is one of the names on their radar.
ALL GO FOR JOE
Chelsea are rivalling Everton and Celtic in the race for Gillingham goalkeeper Joe Walsh.
The highly-rated 17-year-old has been limited to three EFL Trophy appearances so far this season, keeping one clean sheet and conceding seven goals.
Manager Steve Evans confirmed earlier this season both Everton and Celtic were showing interest in the stopper.
With the Blues' transfer ban lifted they are free to bring in new faces but it is unlikely Walsh would be thrown straight into the first team, particularly with both Kepa and Willy Caballero blocking his path to a starting spot.
EDIN TO MADRID?
Edinson Cavani's dad has been talking up a move to Atletico Madrid for his son, in a blow to Chelsea and other English clubs.
The Blues, Tottenham and Manchester United have all been linked with the Uruguayan after he submitted a transfer request at Paris Saint-Germain.
Cavani's contract at PSG runs out at the end of the season and he has seen his game time limited this season by the arrival of Mauro Icardi in Paris.
His father Luis said: “He want to play for another team in Europe. That would please me that he plays at Atletico, yes.
“If tomorrow he is available and Atletico still want him, he will sign.”
Moussa Dembele has ruled out a move away from Lyon in the January transfer window.
Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United have all been linked with the ex-Celtic striker.
But Dembele told reporters after Lyon's win over Lille last night he would not be leaving France this month.
He said: “I am a Lyon player and I will remain so until the end of the season.
“I do not think that there will be a departure this winter.”
IT'S ALL INTER THE DETAILS
Oliver Giroud's move to Inter Milan is being held up by Chelsea's frosty relationship with former boss Antonio Conte.
The French striker is believed to have agreed personal terms and has rejected other options in favour of joining the Serie A giants.
However, the clubs are still some way off agreeing a transfer fee and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is not keen to give any discounts to Inter and Conte.
Chelsea paid out £26.6 million in compensation after sacking the Italian and his staff at the end of the 2017/18 season and they were embroiled in a lengthy legal battle for close to a year.
