Welcome back to our LIVE coverage of all the latest transfer news, deals, gossip and rumours with the January window now just days away from opening.

While Covid-19 has had a huge impact on clubs’ finances across the world, big money was still spent in the summer window and will no doubt change hands once again as we enter 2021.

There will also be the chance to land some big players on pre-contract agreements for the summer, with Lionel Messi unlikely to sign a new deal at Barcelona following his extraordinary fallout with the club.

Manchester City look odds-on to land the Argentine legend with Pep Guardiola in charge, but a reunion with Neymar at PSG is also a distinct possibility - and Mauricio Pochettino is all set to be the next coach in Paris.

Manchester United are riding high in second place, and could strengthen their title bid with reports suggesting Moises Caicedo, Max Aarons and Leon Bailey are all on their radar.

Elsewhere, Arsenal are reportedly keen on Brighton’s Tariq Lamptey if Hector Bellerin leaves the club, while Real Madrid playmaker Isco and Heretha Berlin defender Omar Rekik are said to be on Mikel Arteta’s shortlist. Tottenham are after Marcel Sabitzer, while Frank Lampard is under pressure to get his summer signings firing at Chelsea with Thomas Tuchel now free to take on a new job.
