Raul Jimenez.

The rush is on… With just over three weeks to go until the end of the January transfer window, clubs are scrambling for last minute additions as they attempt to bolster their squads for the rest of the season.

Sport360 brings you latest news on some of the latest big transfers.

TOMAS RINCON (GENOA TO JUVENTUS)

€6m (Dh30.6m) – DONE DEAL

Rincon will become the first Venezuelan to play for Juve, after agreeing a deal until June 2020. The 28-year-old joined Genoa from Hamburg in 2014 and scored three goals in 78 games. He could make his debut at home to Bologna on Sunday.

WILFRED NDIDI (GENK TO LEICESTER)
£15m (Dh67m) – DONE DEAL

The Nigerian midfielder, who has signed for the Foxes subject to a work permit, can also play at right-back. He joins compatriot Ahmed Musa and boss Claudio Ranieri will be able to play him straight away as the Super Eagles failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations.

RYAN BABEL (DEPORTIVO TO BESIKTAS)
FREE – DONE DEAL

The talented but troubled Dutchman has signed for his seventh club and second in Turkey after joining Besiktas on a two-and-a-half-year deal. The 30-year-old former Liverpool forward, who had a spell with Al Ain in the UAE, played for Kasimpasa between 2013-15.

RAUL JIMENEZ (BENFICA TO LIVERPOOL)
£50m (Dh224.9m) – NEW TARGET

Liverpool are considering a move for the Benfica forward but will have to pay a huge fee, according to Portuguese publication O Jogo. The 25-year-old Mexico international has caught the Reds’ attention having scored 20 goals in 63 games since his arrival in 2015.

RICARDO RODRIGUEZ (WOLFSBURG TO CHELSEA)
£21m (Dh94.47m) – NEW TARGET

The Swiss left-back is a long-term target for Arsenal but Antonio Conte is keen to steal a march on the Blues’ rivals by making a January move. Chelsea are looking to add to their defensive options as they prepare for the second half of the season.
