Sunday’s speculation says the ‘Big Six’ are keen to capitalise on Newcastle’s FFP concerns, while there’s a new runner in the race to sign Jordan Henderson.
Here are the biggest Premier League transfer rumours from January 14.
Newcastle are reportedly sailing close to the wind when it comes to the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules, with speculation that the Magpies need to cash in on a big-name asset.
Bruno Guimaraes is among the marquee men who could be sold to raise funds. Fresh from going head-to-head to sign Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia in the summer, reports from Spanish outlet Fichajes claim Chelsea and Liverpool are open to meeting the Brazilian’s release clause of €115m (£98.9m).
Liverpool will hope it’s third time lucky in a battle against the big-spending Blues in the transfer market.
Jordan Henderson’s desire for an exit from his regrettable Saudi sojourn looks unlikely to end in a Premier League return. However, there’s interest from Europe in the ex-Liverpool captain, with both Ajax (Mirror) and Juventus (Gazzetto dello Sport) chasing loan deals for the 33-year-old.
The Mirror have also revealed that Manchester United are interested in a deal for Benfica whizz-kid Joao Neves. The 19-year-old made his debut for Portugal in October and looks likely to be the latest academy product to earn Benfica a big windfall.
Elsewhere, A Bola claim Fulham face a fight with FC Porto to sign Atletico Madrid centre-back Caglar Soyuncu. The ex-Leicester man and Lord Farquaard doppelgänger could leave the Spanish side this month.
The Mail say Brentford want to sign Sergio Reguilon on loan from Spurs. The Spaniard spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Manchester United, without earning a regular role.
Finally, Jesse Lingard has reportedly sacked his agent, according to Sky Sports.
After six months of Rocky-esque training montages on Instagram and Paul Scholes’ critique in the comments, the 31-year-old free agent will seek fresh assistance in his bid to find a new club.
