The winter transfer window is just a month away, but that hasn’t stopped the rumours of various players potentially being on the move.

Across the world of football, there remains plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking.

Here, we look at the latest transfer deals that could happen when the market reopens in January.

 

GONZALO HIGUAIN

Chelsea are keen on signing Higuain from AC Milan in a swap deal with Alvaro Morata, according to Sky in Italy.

It is understood Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has huge respect for Higuain, who he worked with at Napoli, and was interested in bringing the Argentine to Chelsea in the summer.

Sky in Italy understands Morata is keen to return to Serie A having previously spent two years with Juventus where he won two league titles and two Coppa Italias.

At his news conference on Friday, Sarri called Higuain a “wonderful player” but refused to discuss a potential move for the Argentina international.

“As you know, I like him very much. He is a wonderful player, a wonderful man,” Sarri said.

CLAUDE PUEL

Leicester City manager Puel could be sacked if results do not improve soon, according to the Sun.

Puel met with the club’s chiefs after their 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace last weekend, with the Foxes having only won two of their last eight games in all competitions.

The Foxes have a difficult next two games, as they battle Chelsea followed by Manchester City.

BENJAMIN PAVARD

Bayern Munich have an agreement in place to sign France international Pavard, according to ESPN.

The Stuttgart defender has a €35 million (£32m) release clause which can be triggered next summer.

However, there is a possibility Bayern will be willing to pay more in order to land Pavard in January.

Paris Saint-Germain teenager Weah is nearing a move to join Strasbourg on loan, according to L’Equipe.

The United States international has not received much first-team action this season with the Ligue 1 leaders and is interested in trying to land more playing time.

PSG want Weah to play as well, so they will agree to a short-term move with their fellow Ligue 1 side.
