TRANSFER CLOCK: 16 days down, 15 more until the Transfer Window slams shut. Here's a run through of five of the biggest and most breaking stories of the day.
1) Kevin De Bruyne has reportedly undergone his medical at VfL Wolfsburg this afternoon ahead of a €20 million move to the Bundesliga.
The 22-year-old has struggled for first team football this season despite impressing on loan for Werder Bremen last term.
If all results come back OK his deal will be completed tomorrow.
2) Manchester United midfielder Anderson has been snapped on camera arriving in Florence. The Brazilian has struggled in the past couple of seasons with injuries and form and it seems the club have finally lost patience with the 25-year-old.
He is expected to tie up a loan deal until the end of the season next week - when a Work Permit can be arranged for his arrival.
He will then be expected to sign a permanent deal at the Artemio Franchi if he impresses.
3) The ‘next Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ has rejected a move to Sunderland as well as Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Celtic, CSKA Moscow and reportedly a host of other top European clubs - but it looks like he is on his way to Roma.
He told Fotbollskanalen.se:
“Roma is a big club, it might be a dream to play for that club. Berisha and Totti sounds like a dream. But I believe he will retire before I reach the first team. It will be the U-21 team for me at the club I join.”
He rejected a trial at Arsenal in the summer and is now set for Serie A.
4) Arsenal are reportedly looking at Barcelona starlet Munir El Haddadi. The 18-year-old striker has impressed in recent B team games and he would follow the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin in making the switch.
However Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have also been looking at him - so The Gunners will fear another Antonio Sanabria situation - who rejected them for AS Roma earlier this month.
The Lille striker recently said he would not leave until the end of the season - but the lure of White Hart Lane may change his mind.
Reports suggest that talks will be held tomorrow over a potential £3 million move.
