The Premier League transfer speculation continues to come thick and fast, with Friday seeing another raft of rumours.
Here are the biggest Premier League transfer rumours from January 5.
Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has been pretty helpful in sorting the truth from fiction this week, giving his side’s stance on potential Premier League incomings and outgoings.
Arsenal’s hopes of signing Dusan Vlahovic from the Italian side have been squashed, while Giuntoli also said Juventus ‘don’t see any opportunity’ to add Manchester City’s Kalvin Phillips or Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to their midfield options.
Fabrizio Romano has revealed the details of Jeremie Frimpong’s release clause. The Bayer Leverkusen wing-back has attracted notable interest from England, though his €40m get-out only becomes active in the summer.
Meanwhile, Brentford boss Thomas Frank has said it will take an ‘unbelievable price’ to sign Ivan Toney this month. Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with the soon-to-return striker.
Fulham have been offered the chance to sign ex-Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino from Al-Ahli, according to talkSPORT. The West Londoners have been short on goals this season and could look to repeat their Raul Jimenez-style winding back of the clock on the South American.
Arsenal continue to ignore their FFP concerns and like Everton’s Amadou Onana and Ajax teenager Jorel Hato, report Teamtalk and the Telegraph respectively, while the Metro claim Manchester United have been quoted £51.7m by Atalanta for centre-back Giorgio Scalvini.
Crystal Palace are hoping to beat sizeable top-flight competition to Peterborough prospect Ronnie Edwards, report the Evening Standard, though have had three bids already rejected for the England u-19 international.
Elsewhere, the Mirror say that Conor Gallagher will shun a move to Spurs in favour of staying at Chelsea. The midfielder had been linked with being a casualty of the Blues’ big-spending regime, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side look to comply with FFP regulations.
