Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd target 'ready' to join, Chelsea eye £17m ace, Toney to Arsenal


With the January transfer window just around the table, Premier League clubs will be finalising their plans ahead of what is set to be an exciting month of negotiations. Those competing for the title are expected to splash the cash and bolster their chances of domestic success, with Arsenal and Liverpool plotting significant moves.

Following Manchester City’s steady start to the campaign, the Gunners have been given renewed hope that they can make up for last season’s late collapse by winning the Premier League. Mikel Arteta is keen for his side to sign at least a striker and a defender in the January transfer window, with several options set to be explored.

Liverpool are also in the market for reinforcements at both ends of the pitch, with a long-term injury to Joel Matip recently meaning that signing a centre-back has become a priority at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp orchestrated a major rebuild of his midfield over the summer and further additions in that department should not be ruled out, with Fulham’s Joao Palhinha among those linked.

Elsewhere, Chelsea are expected to continue their spending spree next month at the expense of some of their academy graduates, whilst Ange Postecoglou is on the search for squad depth at Tottenham. Express Sport keeps you up to date with all the latest…
