SIMON JONESEverton are ready to offload over £60million worth of signings this month as they listen to offers for Cenk Tosun, Oumar Niasse and Morgan Schneiderlin.

Tosun, signed a year ago for £27m, will be allowed to go for £20m this month while Niasse and Schneiderlin are also free to leave.

The pair cost £13.5m and £20m respectively but can also go for cut-price fees.


NATHAN SALT: Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is ‘set to have his Juventus medical in London on Sunday’ as the Italian giants look to finalise a deal for the Welshman. 

Ramsey’s contract expires in north London in the summer and as he is free to discuss terms with teams abroad, it appears Juventus are closing in on a smart free transfer.  

According to Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport, Ramsey will undertake part of his medical in secret in London, just a day after Arsenal suffered defeat to city rivals West Ham.  


SAM MCEVOY: Chelsea are ‘considering activating the buy-back clause in Nathan Ake’s contract’ just two years after selling him to Bournemouth.

The 23-year-old is highly regarded by the Blues but could have to pay £40million to re-secure his services – double for what they sold him for in 2016.

The Stamford Bridge outfit will weigh up their options for the centre back in the summer, according to the Sun.


JOE BERNSTEINManchester United’s recent revival under Ole Gunnar Solsjaer has reduced the chances of moving in the January transfer window.

United chiefs were always reluctant to spend this month, despite Jose Mourinho’s appeals.

They would prefer to wait until the summer in order to make a big move for a centre-half like Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly in the summer.


ROSS HEPPENSTALL: Jack Clarke is being tracked by a growing number of Premier League clubs as Leeds United look to tie down the promising teenager on a new long-term deal.

The 18-year-old winger has progressed through the vaunted academy at Elland Road and taken the Championship by storm in recent weeks.

He made his debut against Brentford in October before a number of eye-catching substitute appearances marked him out as a special talent.


ROB DRAPER: Callum Hudson-Odoi wants Chelsea to allow him to leave this week in a £35million  move to Bayern Munich, insisting that he needs to play in order to develop as a player.

The 18-year-old, who is only now getting his chance under Maurizio Sarri since Bayern demonstrated their interest in him, wants to join the Bundesliga champions as they are in a rebuilding process, with wide players Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery quitting at the end of the season.

Bayern want Hudson-Odoi to be part of their immediate future whereas Chelsea, who have signed wide player Christian Pulisic for £58m, have previously stressed the need for patience.


Hello and welcome to day 13 of the January transfer window. 

We are rapidly approaching the midway point for club’s to get some winter business over the line and after another round of Saturday matches, it is becoming clearer and clearer to some managers what is required.

Some desperately need to add goals while others need cover at the back.

Stick with me throughout the day as I keep you up to date with all the moves and deals as they happen.
