The transfer window is in full swing and you can follow all the latest news, rumours and done deals right here throughout the day. Chelsea and Manchester United both feature in this morning’s papers, with Blues midfielder Ross Barkley weighing up whether to depart Stamford Bridge on loan this January in order to find some more playing time. Barkley has featured only 12 times this season and was only a second-half substitute in Saturday’s FA Cup win over Chesterfield. “It depends what Ross wants and what possibilities there are and what makes sense,” said Tuchel. “We’ll see.”
Meanwhile Manchester United have not received any offers for Paul Pogba ahead of his contract ending this summer, according to the Mail, while Bruno Fernandes has rubbished reports he is heading to Barcelona. Aston Villa are closing in on the transfer of Lucas Digne from Everton after the Frenchman’s falling out with Rafael Benitez, while Newcastle have been linked to just about anyone and everyone: Monaco’s Benoit Badiashile, PSV’s Ibrahim Sangare, Leipzig’s Noah Okafor and Burnley’s Chris Wood are just some of the names linked with Eddie Howe’s rebuild.

Mourinho to continue Roma reboot
Fabrizio Romano believes that Portuguese midfielder Sergio Oliveira is on his way to join Jose Mourinho in Rome.
Following the loan signing of Arsenal’s versatile Englishman, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Roma are looking to reinforce their squad with another midfielder on loan and Oliviera looks set to be the chosen one.
Mbappe could be staying put...
Le Parisien have reported that Kylian Mbappe might be staying at PSG this summer after all.
The supremely talented forward is yet to agree on a new deal with the French giants, and it has been heavily speculated that Mbappe will be moving to Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer.
However, Le Parisien believe that there is still a chance the 23-year-old will sign a new deal and continue to ply his trade in Ligue Une alongside teammates Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Aaron Ramsey’s Arsenal return?
Aaron Ramsey could be moving back to North London this winter with Arsenal interested in the Welshman, according to the Sun on Sunday.
Arsenal currently have a severe lack of depth in midfield with Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny on international duty at the African Cup of Nations.
The 31-year-old has been made available for sale by his current club Juventus and would ease the burden on the likes of Albert Sambi Lokonga and Charlie Patino.
The young pair may have to play a more important role than they would have planned for, if Arsenal don’t recruit in midfield this window, and Ramsey’s experience could prove vital.
Sanches on the move?
Portuguese international Renato Sanches looks like he could be on the move this winter, according to El Nacional.
The former Bayern Munich man, who once had an interesting loan spell at Swansea City, has had a successful time in France for his current club Lille.
He was part of the Lille side that bettered PSG last season to win the league, but the French club are set to capitalise on his good spell and cash in on the 24-year-old.
Newcastle looking to fill Callum Wilson shaped hole

Cavani to stay at Old Trafford
It looks like Edinson Cavani will be staying at Manchester United for the rest of the season.

Exodus on the cards under Conte?
Antonio Conte has only been in charge of Spurs for a short period of time, but the Italian is already looking to reshape the squad.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn is among those who will be leaving the North London club this window, with Ajax being touted as a potential suitor. Could we see the 24-year-old head back to the Netherlands?
Newcastle to sign talented French defender?
Newcastle have been linked to yet another player this window. This time it is the turn of French defender Benoit Badiashile to be linked with a move to the North-East, this is according to the Daily Mail.
It is said the 20-year-old will cost around £35m and Newcastle fans will be hoping, if a move materialises, that he can improve their shaky back line.
