Aston Villa want Brentford midfielder (Birmingham Live)

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith wants to reunite with midfielder Romaine Sawyers, having previously worked with the player at Griffin Park. Sawyers, 27, has had an impressive spell with the Bees and is from the Midlands, having played for the likes of West Brom and Walsall earlier in his career. Smith has made an impressive start to life at Villa Park and is now hoping to add the exciting attacking midfielder to his side.

Crystal Palace chasing Defoe loan (Sun)

Crystal Palace want to boost their hopes of survival by signing Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe on loan in January. The 36-year-old has struggled for game time at the Vitality Stadium this season due to the form of Callum Wilson and Josh King, making just four appearances as a substitute. Palace have struggled for a goalscorer since the start of last season with Christian Benteke being shot of confidence and the Premier League side would likely pip Sheffield United for his loan signature, should Defoe become available.

Chelsea eye Fabregas replacement (Mirror)

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri wants Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez as a replacement for the outgoing Cesc Fabregas. It’s been widely reported that Fabregas is set to join AC Milan in January after being unable to nail down a place at Stamford Bridge under Sarri and is still yet to start in the Premier League this season. Suarez has played just eight minutes in La Liga this term and Chelsea have identified him as a replacement for Fabregas.


Leeds and Aston Villa target Newcastle ‘keeper (Sun)

Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow is a transfer target for Championship sides Leeds United and Aston Villa in January. Darlow has made just one first-team appearance for the Magpies this season, having lost his place in the team to the impressive Martin Dubravka between the sticks. The former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper could now drop down to the Championship, with two of the division’s bigger clubs touted as having an interest in him.

Neves’ agent pushing for Juventus move (Calciomercato)

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves could be set for a transfer to Juventus – that is if his agent has anything to do with it. The 21-year-old midfielder has impressed for the Molineux outfit since joining last summer, leading to talk that he could be set for a big move in the near future. It’s now being reported that his agent, Jorge Mendes, is keen for him to speak to perennial Serie A champions Juventus, where he would link up with Portuguese teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and João Cancelo.

Middlesbrough want Traore back (Teamtalk)

Middlesbrough have reportedly enquired about bringing Adama Traore back to the club on loan, just four months after he joined Premier League side Wolves. The Spanish winger became a favourite at the Riverside last season, with his dynamism and pace turning him into one of the most dangerous players in the Championship. However, the 22-year-old has thus far been unable to nail down a regular place in the Wolves team, starting just three times in the Premier League this season.


Richarlison being watched by Barcelona (Star)

Everton forward Richarlison is being monitored by La Liga giants Barcelona, according to a recent report in the Star. The Brazilian has been in excellent form at Goodison Park this season, scoring seven goals in 13 Premier League appearances so far. His form has seen him rewarded with a call-up to the Brazil squad for the first time, where he has scored three goals in six caps.

London Premier League pair target Chelsea’s Moses (Sun)

Chelsea winger Victor Moses is currently being chased by former club Crystal Palace and Fulham in a £12m January move. Moses has fallen out of favour under Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea’s switch from a back three to a back four hampering his chances of playing first-team football. The 27-year-old has been a Chelsea player since 2012 but could now move on to play more regularly.

Multiple scouts watching West Ham’s Oxford (Sun)

West Ham prodigy Reece Oxford was being watched by scouts from Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim at a recent under-23s game. Oxford, 19, made his Hammers debut three years ago as a 16-year-old, but has struggled to ever establish himself in the first team ever since. He spent last season on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach and could be set for a quick return to the Bundesliga.
