The January transfer window opened last week and clubs are continue to negotiate over potential moves as they look to bolster their squads in what is a chaotic season of coronavirus outbreaks and match postponements.

Tottenham, somewhat surprisingly, look like they could be one of the busiest Premier League clubs this month in terms of transfers, with Jose Mourinho’s side reportedly eyeing a loan move for Real Madrid defender Eder Militao – who is also wanted by AC Milan, inter and Roma – and Nicolas Gonzalez. Spurs face competition from fellow Premier League side Leeds and La Liga outfit Valencia in their pursuit of the Stuttgart winger, however. Interestingly, Valencia are thought to be keen on taking Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks on loan.

Elsewhere in north London, Arsenal have been priced out of a deal for Norwich’s Emi Buendia and so could move for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma, though a summer switch appears more likely in this case, with the Seagulls close to securing Moises Caicedo from Independiente del Valle but expected to loan the 19-year-old to either Manchester United or Chelsea. Those powerhouses are also in a race to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, but Bayern Munich have joined that race.
