The transfer window opens next week with Premier League sides expected to go big.

Manchester United are expected to add a defender in January after Jose Mourinho was blocked from signing one in the summer.

Chelsea and Arsenal need reinforcing in their bid for the top four, while Liverpool and Manchester City need bodies to help their title challenge.

Elsewhere in Europe Real Madrid and Barcelona could be active as they plan for the second half of the season.

Tottenham eye Aarons

Tottenham want to sign Max Aarons from Norwich, according to the Sun.

The England under 21 ace is under contract until 2023 and is also wanted by RB Leipzig.

But Tottenham hope their record for bringing young English players through works in their favour.

Norwich however will refuse to sell him this January unless they get him back on loan until the summer

Hazard swap deal

Real Madrid want to use Isco and Matteo Kovacic as part of the deal to sign Eden Hazard, according to reports in Spain.

Onda Cero claim the European champions will try and send two players - one who is already on loan at Chelsea - to London in exchange for Hazard.

The Belgium star is on Florentino Perez’s radar and has hinted at a move to Madrid one day.

Chelsea are trying to sign him to a new deal but have had little progress in talks.

Salah quit claim

Mohamed Salah could sensationally quit Liverpool if they sign Red Bull Salzburg centre forward Moanes Dabour.

That is according to the Jewish Post, who report that due to issues between Egypt and Israel, Salah may be unwilling to play with Dabour.

Liverpool are believed to have scouted the Salzburg star, who has scored 22 goals in 32 matches registering five assists.

But Jurgen Klopp may have second thoughts on the deal after the claims Salah may contemplate his own future if the striker was signed.
