It means the Colombia winger will not be registered in time to face Manchester City in the potential title decider tomorrow night, but his arrival will give Chelsea's squad a major boost for the rest of the campaign.

Chelsea are preparing to launch a £21m bid for West Ham forward Enner Valencia, according to The Sun.

Liverpool are attempting to beat other Premier League clubs to sign Burnley’s Danny Ings, through a deal which allow the selling club to keep him until the summer to help their fight for Premier League survival, The Independent understands.


Burnley are unwilling to let Ings leave in this transfer window as he is vital to their attempts to survive in the top flight. But by allowing him to stay at Turf Moor, Liverpool can enter into discussions which would see them benefit from the fact that his contract expires in the summer.

Manchester United are hopeful of securing up a £15m deal for Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

United also remain interested in Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels, and are preparing a sensational £37m bid before Monday's January window.
