Real Madrid youngster Martin Odegaard is expected to be allowed to leave the club on loan, with a move to the English Championship a possibility.
According to The Mirror, the 19-year-old attacker, who signed for Los Blancos back in January 2015 but has gone on to make only one first-team appearance since, could be set for a season-long loan switch.
A move of such nature would be familiar for the Norwegian, who has spent the past two campaigns at Dutch outfit SC Heerenveen on a temporary basis.
Reportedly, Odegaard still has a huge future with the Spanish giants but they want his development to continue in the second-tier of English football.
Los Blancos have long since been linked with the 27-year-old Belgian, who himself has not been shy in the past in revealing his desire to play for the Santiago Bernabeu club one day.
And he could yet get his wish should the Whites come up £200 million (Dh938m) offer for Hazard this month, which would make him the second-most expensive player ever behind Neymar.
Despite that large sum, the Blues and new boss Maurizio Sarri has previously stated that his No10 is going nowhere.
The ball is now in Madrid’s court and it will be intriguing to see how they play their cards.
AC Milan misfit Andre Silva could have played his last game for the club after he sealed a loan exit to Sevilla.
Silva, 22, was purchased by the Rossoneri from Porto last summer amid great fanfare for €38 million. But his debut campaign at San Siro was miserable, scoring just twice in 24 Serie A run-outs as his new club missed out on Champions League qualification.
Sevilla have now swept in to secure their seventh arrival of the transfer market. The arrangement contains a €35m option to turn the switch permanent for the Portugal striker at the end of 2018/19.
A medical was undertaken in the Spanish city on Saturday. This saw him absent from the squad that faced Real Madrid in a friendly.
