One of Wednesday’s most intriguing rumours is that Daniel Levy has contacted Real Madrid about potentially bringing Gareth Bale back to the club on loan. The Welshman would be open to the move and Real are desperate for him to leave the club – but will Spurs be able to afford his staggering wages, even if partially subsidised by the Spanish giants? Meanwhile, Liverpool have been fairly active this month and could move for a third younger player while also continuing to monitor Timo Werner, who appears increasingly open to a move to Anfield.

Manchester United have been in the headlines recently as they chase Bruno Fernandes to bolster their midfield options. However, their long-running pursuit of the Sporting Lisbon captain may now be forced to take something of a backseat as they refocus their attention on signing a new striker, after the influential Marcus Rashford suffered a back injury last week. Chelsea are also chasing a new striker and expect the Premier League rivals to clash over the next few days as they pursue similar transfer targets. So stick with us and follow all of the latest transfer news, gossip and done deals live below.
