Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Everton feature.

Here's the latest you need to know...

Cissokho

Tottenham are keen on signing Aly Cissokho, report The Mirror. The defender signed permanently with Aston Villa in the summer transfer window, putting a poor spell on loan at Liverpool behind him. The paper claim both Spurs and Napoli are eyeing the left-back, and that Villa boss Paul Lambert is already scouring the transfer market for potential replacements in case they cannot hold onto the 27-year-old Frenchman. Cissokho has played all 17 games for Villa this season so far.

Yedlin

DeAndre Yedlin is poised to seal an early switch to Tottenham this January, after MLS.com confirmed his work permit has finally been approved. The full-back had been scheduled originally to join from Seattle Sounders in the summer, but the club are of the mindset that he has played his last game for them and will not block him leaving earlier than originally agreed.

Sissoko

Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko continues to be linked with a move to Arsenal. The midfielder has been impressive in recent weeks, but has admitted he could not turn down a move to North London. Speaking to French newspaper L'Equipe, he told how Arsenal are his boyhood club and says he 'still loves them.'

Traore

Everton are keen on loaning Barcelona sensation Adama Traore, report The Mirror. The winger scored a superb goal for the first team last week, and has recently signed a new long-term deal at the club. The paper report that the Toffees are in pole position to sign the teenager, having forged contacts already via a similar deal for Gerard Deulofeu last season. Barcelona are considering allowing the 18-year-old to move in January until the end of the season.
