From Italy internationals to European champions, there are plenty of options available to sign pre-contracts if English teams, like Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool are a bit strapped for cash post-Christmas.

West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur are both reportedly interested in Lyon attacking midfielder Rachid Ghezzal.
