Juventus are to hold talks with Sassuolo on Thursday evening in a bid to thrash out a deal for Gianluca Scamacca.

This all comes on the same day that Juventus signed Marley Ake from Marseille, with Franco Tongya heading in the opposite direction.

16:35 - West Ham offered Dawson deal

The Daily Mail writes that West Ham could make another permanent signing this winter.
They are understood to have signed Said Benrahma for another £20.75 million from Brentford, bringing forward the conversion of his loan deal. That would free up space to bring Jesse Lingard to the club on loan from Manchester United.
However, Watford's on-loan central defender Craig Dawson has impressed and the Not London club have contacted the London club to offer him on a permanent basis for £3 million. That would allow West Ham to facilitate another loan deal if it were suitable for them, but there is no indication yet that they are aiming to take such a deal for the 30-year-old player.

16:10 - Technically Premier League transfer news

Brighton striker Glenn Murray is on loan at Norwich City, but he has only played a few times and has fallen out of favour at the club.
Indeed, he is so out of favour that he is training by himself, and there seems little chance he will find his way back either there or with his parent club.
Nottingham Forest have stepped in with an attempt to bring him on for the remainder of the season. Technically Premier League news. Technically.

15:50 - Davies confirmed for Celtic switch

Preston defender Ben Davies is another Championship player making the trip north of the border.
The 25-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, so a free transfer for then has been arranged.
However Celtic are interested in bringing him to Scotland right away, so there may be a deal worked out now to hurry up the switch.

15:25 - Dzeko/Sanchez swap?

Alexis Sanchez's career continues to go off the boil as Inter Milan are ready to admit defeat.

However, the sheer scale of his wages could be a stumbling block.

Speaking to NTV Spor, he said: "If Everton and Besiktas agree, I am ready to wear the black and white jersey again.

Atletico Madrid have also been in the news, but they have made a signing for certain. 19-year-old Marcos Paulo joins from Fluminese with a contract signed until 2026.
The player is from Brazili, but qualifies for Portugal through his grandfather, which means that he won't occupy a non-EU spot in Atletico's squad.

12:15 - Bundesrumours

To the best of my knowledge, that is not a real German word. With that said, here are the latest Bundesrumours.
Sky Sports Germany report that Borussia Dortmund have their eye on three potential replacements for Jadon Sancho, who is expected to move back to a Premier League side this summer after a failed transfer to Manchester United last summer.
One option is Monaco's 20-year-old Sofiane Diop. Bild, meanwhile, suggest Dortmund might go for Ajax's Donyell Malen or head back to City for Jayden Braaf.
The paper also suggests that Julian Brandt, the out-of-favour Dortmund midfielder, is a target of Hertha, but he will stay where he is. Hertha continue to look for creativity from midfield and have already been knocked back by Xherdan Shaqiri and Ivan Perisic.

12:00 - News from France

We have news from France, now, with the latest goings on.
L'Equipe say that Leandro Paredes is wanted by Inter Milan and Antonio Conte. That would make sense, given Christian Eriksen could yet leave the club, potentially to Spurs. That would then free up Dele Alli to move onto PSG (Le Parisien), who would then be overstocked when it comes to playmakers. However, the Argentine would rather stay with Mauricio Pochettino than Antonio Conte, which is fair enough.

Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson has agreed a deal to join Scottish side Rangers.

11:30 - Real Madrid want Mbappe to give them a sign

Spanish champions Real Madrid have long been said to be keen on a move for 22-year-old Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.
The French international forward has a deal that runs out in a year and a half in Paris, and no agreement has yet been struck.
He has not yet ruled out a move, and instead has said that if he does commit to stay with PSG, it would be for the long term. If however it becomes clear that he won't sign a new deal then his current club will have little choice but to sell him in the summer to raise funds.
Real, report
, say that they want a sign from Mbappe that they should step up their interest, given the political ramifications for PSG of selling what is their most important player. It would cost more than 100 million euros to pull off the deal, in transfer fees alone.

11:20 - Ake deal could pave way for Aouar to Juve

Transfer Guru Gianluca DiMarzio suggests that Marley Ake's arrival from Marseille could held Juventus sign Houssem Aouar. The playmaker almost joined Juve in the summer but no deal was finalised.
However, Ake shares an agent with Aouar and improving relations with him could smooth a deal in the summer.
Arsenal were said to be interested in the playmaker but struggled to find funds given the expenditure on Thomas Partey.

10:35 - Torreira on the move again?

Lucas Torreira has barely featured for Atletico Madrid this season. The Uruguayan midfielder moved to Spain and given Thomas Partey went in the other direction, one might have assumed that he would fill the void left by him under Diego Simeone.
Instead, he has struggled to make an impact and Valencia, Torino, Fiorentino and Lazio were all said to be keen on the former Sampdoria man. For Arsenal's part, they want the player to move to somewhere he stands a good chance of action. The more he plays, the better chance he can be sold for decent money in the summer or has the form to contribute for Arsenal next season.
However, given Atletico and Monaco have good relations given previous transfers, he could be in line to switch to Ligue 1, which would benefit all four parties, reports AS.

10:15 - Seri wanted by Bordeaux on loan

Jean-Michael Seri could be bringing his time to an end at Fulham.
The Premier League side have had little use for the 29-year-old Ivory Coast international, and he has featured just twice for Scott Parker, with neither appearance in the Premier League.
He went on loan to Galatasaray last season, but reports in France suggest he could return to Ligue 1. The player spent some time with Nice, and could now be on his way back on loan. There is, however, no option to buy proposed by the French side. For Fulham, getting him off their wage book could allow them to make room for signings to help keep them in the league for another season.

10:00 - Tosun wanted by Besiktas

Cenk Tosun has struggled to make an impact during his time with Everton, and now the 29-year-old striker could be ready to move on.
He's played seven times for Everton so far this season, and spent some time on loan last year with Crystal Palace, but appears unsuited to life in the Premier League.
Now, according to Sky Sports, his former side Besiktas would like him back in Turkey, though they also have an interest in Brazilian striker Hulk, who is a free agent after ending his time in China.

9:45 - Garcia move to Barcelona in doubt

Manchester City's Spanish defender Eric Garcia's planned move to Barcelona may not go ahead.
The 20-year-old almost joined last summer but the centre-back didn't have the cash to complete a deal. However, with his contract expiring at the end of the season he available for nothing in the summer, and able to sign a pre-contract agreement now, reports Mundo Deportivo.
While Garcia still wants the move, Barcelona are reticent to go ahead with any move until a new president is in place, and Ronald Koeman's position is hardly secure.

9:30 - Gilmour wants loan move

Chelsea's young midfielder is looking to leave the club on loan for the rest of the season as he aims to secure a place in the Scotland national team this summer.
Euro 2020 was postponed due to the coronavirus and is currently set to take place in summer 2021, and Gilmour wants to mame sure he's in the squad.
The Daily Mail claims that Rangers, managed by Steven Gerrard, could be a destination for the player.
Thomas Tuchel named his first squad as Chelsea boss last night against Wolves, and Gilmour wasn't in it. He has played just twice in the Premier League so far this season.

9:15 - United unlikely to sign Ramos

The Sun reports that Manchester United, who almost signed Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid when Louis van Gaal was manager, have a gentleman's agreement not to push for the Spanish international's signature.
Contract talks between the Real captain and the club have stalled as he approaches the end of his contract this summer, but due to the impact of the coronavirus, top clubs have agreed not to swoop for each other's best players.
Ramos would be an excellent short-term addition for any club who could afford him, but if this agreement is true, then one would assume he would have to take a paycut to stay at Real or move to China or MLS if he wants to maintain his earnings. If he were to reject the chance to stay at Real then other clubs could then step in.

08:45 - Good morning

Alex Netherton will be here at 09:00, but, first up, Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta has taken aim at PSG regarding their attempts to sign Lionel Messi.
PSG have made it abundantly clear that they will attempt to lure the Argentine to Parc des Princes. However, Laporta has said that they have overstepped the mark and has threatened to report them to FIFA.
"The club must be capable of making a good proposal that Messi is willing to accept. That depends on the club," said Laporta over the uncertainty engulfing Barca.
"I would understand any answer [from Messi], but he needs to know what the proposal is; that requires urgency. It is getting more complicated all the time to make a convincing proposal. He's free to negotiate with other clubs now and Barca are still without a president."
Laporta then turned his eye on PSG, saying:
It is disrespectful to Barca that clubs like PSG publicly say they are going to sign Messi. This coming from a club-state that have bypassed the rules. We cannot allow clubs and states the luxury of destabilising another club.
"In that sense, we will have to speak with UEFA and FIFA to avoid such actions. PSG must abstain from [talking about Messi]. It is out of place for another club to speak about him. And, at the moment, there is no president in place to respond to this lack of respect."
