Welcome back to our LIVE coverage of the January transfer window, which opens today.

The winter window is officially open for Premier League clubs to start making any moves following a dramatic start to the season.

Manchester United have gone level on points with League leaders Liverpool. While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with his squad, summer signing Amad Diallo is set to join up with the Red Devils squad, Jadon Sancho is still a target, reports of a move for Jack Grealish won’t go away - and ‘the next Bruno Fernandes’ could be on their wishlist in the form of Sporting midfielder Pedro Goncalves.

As for Arsenal, January looks to be more about Mikel Arteta cutting his squad rather than adding to it, with Mesut Ozil’s future a chief concern. Still, the Gunners have been linked with Norwich’s Emi Buendia, Real Madrid playmaker Isco, AS Roma defender Roger Ibanez and more - so don’t rule out anything just yet.

Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea have the money to spend despite over £200m of summer arrivals, and AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma - available on a free this summer - could be a surprise target. Though will Frank Lampard be in charge come February?

Liverpool are looking at defenders with Lille’s Sven Botman a possibility, while Jose Mourinho says any Tottenham arrivals would be a “big surprise"… but is that a smokescreen from the Spurs boss? Meanwhile, Dele Alli may be on his way to PSG with Mauricio Pochettino confirmed as their new head coach.
