Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa, Arsenal, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur all feature.

14 Days to go until the transfer window opens: Here are the big overnight stories you need to know...

Fabian Delph to Liverpool?

Liverpool are keen to sign midfielder Fabian Delph from Aston Villa and beat Tottenham to his signature, report The Mirror.

Delph is out of contract at the end of the season and the midfielder is not currently in talks to sign a new deal. Tottenham had been previously linked with trying to sign him, even in a swap deal for Moussa Dembele in January, with Villa considering cashing in while they can.

The midfielder has established himself as an England international over the past year and the paper report he is being eyed as a replacement for Steven Gerrard.

Manchester City eye Raheem Sterling

With Raheem Sterling's contract talks ongoing, The Manchester Evening News report that Manchester City want to cause a splash by signing him.

The England winger has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract and while the paper claim Liverpool are 'relaxed' about the situation.

City have the financial muscle to pull off such a deal and are said to be monitoring the situation, but realistically Liverpool would do all they could to avoid selling, especially to a rival.

Arsenal, Liverpool, City want Rolando Aarons

Newcastle's Rolando Aarons is a winger compared to Sterling, and he himself is locked in contract negotiations.

However the Star report the player has been offered only £6,000 per week on a six-year deal by the club, which has been dismissed by his agents.

The paper report Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City are all keeping an eye on developments with his current contract expiring in June 2016.
