11.15 UPDATE: Huddersfield done deal

Huddersfield head coach Jan Siewert believes he has signed a natural goalscorer after securing the services of striker Karlan Grant from Charlton for an undisclosed fee.

Grant has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Terriers, who have an option to extend the deal by another season.

The 21-year-old has scored 14 goals for Charlton in Sky Bet League One this season and joins a team 11 points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League.

Siewert said: “As I do, this club believes in talented young players and Karlan certainly fits that description. He’s a player I’m delighted to have the chance to work with.

11.00 UPDATE: Arsenal in talks with midfielder

Arsenal are in talks with PSG over a deal to sign Christopher Nkunku, his agent has revealed.

“There is a real interest from Arsenal for Nkunku, but the discussions are quite complicated,” agent Jose-Karl Pierre-Fanfan said on Canal +.

“There are restrictions from Arsenal’s side, they cannot do a transfer in the middle of the season.

“It is still being discussed with PSG, things could still happen in the next 48 hours, but as I said, the fact that I am here means that it does not look good.”

10.45 UPDATE: Sarri tells Hazard to leave

Maurizio Sarri has told Eden Hazard to leave – if that’s what he wants.

Hazard has been linked with Real Madrid and has so far refused to sign a new deal at Chelsea.

“Eden is 28. If he wants to go, I think he has to go,” Sarri said.

“Of course, I hope the opposite, I hope he wants to stay here.

“He has the potential to be the best player in Europe at the moment.”

Owen Coyle has told Arsenal to hold talks with Chelsea to sign Gary Cahill.

Former Chelsea skipper Cahill, 33, is way down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and is free to leave.

Coyle said: “Why don’t they go to Gary Cahill? I’ve said this for a while.

“I don’t think he’ll go there, I’m led to believe he’ll be going somewhere else.

“But I don’t understand why Arsenal don’t go and get a centre half of the quality of Gary Cahill.”

09.30 UPDATE: Arsenal latest

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has delivered a transfer update that NO Arsenal fan will want to hear.

He told the Transfer Talk podcast: “We can safely say Arsenal are interested in both Perisic and Suarez but the likelihood is they will get one or the other before Thursday night, or neither.

“Emery, in his news conference, was asked about Perisic and Suarez and he never gives anything away in regards to transfers.

“He kind of defers it to the transfer committee at Arsenal but he doesn’t deny either.”

08.55 UPDATE: Pogba offers himself to Real Madrid

Paul Pogba has offered himself to Real Madrid despite his improvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to massive reports in Spain.

Manchester United star Pogba was linked with Real Madrid before Solskjaer took the job, amid his struggles under Jose Mourinho.

But the World Cup winner has looked happy under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has been revitalised on the pitch.

However, Spanish outlet Ok Diario have sensationally claimed that Pogba has ‘offered himself’ to Real Madrid.

08.40 UPDATE: Tottenham in Real Betis talks

Tottenham are in transfer talks with Real Betis – but it’s not to sign a new star.

Instead, Spurs are ready to send flop striker Vincent Janssen to Spain.

Janssen has never really made the grade at Spurs after joining from AZ Alkmaar for £17m in 2016.

He spent last season on loan at Fenerbahce and a move to Spain before Thursday’s transfer deadline now looks inevitable.

07.45 UPDATE: Arsenal Perisic blow

Arsenal have been told to forget about signing Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

“Perisic wants to go abroad, but there are no suitable offers,” Inter chief Ausilio said.

“If he does remain, I expect the same professionalism from him as always.

“We intend to get him back on track and it shouldn’t be a problem. I don’t think it’ll take very long.

“I can say the Inter transfer market is closed.”

07.30 UPDATE: Chelsea want Christensen fee

And now The Sun claim the 22-year-old could leave Stamford Bridge temporarily.

07.15 UPDATE: Arsenal set to sign Suarez

Denis Suarez is poised to become Arsenal’s first January signing after they agreed a deal with Barcelona.

The Gunners will pay an initial loan fee of around £2.2m for the attacking midfielder, 25, who worked with Gunners boss Unai Emery at Seville.

And they will have an option to make the move for the former Manchester City youngster, who can also play on both flanks, permanent in the summer for around £20m.

Suarez’s decision to extend his Barcelona contract, which was due to expire in 2020, until 2021 to help protect his value was a key breakthrough in talks.

Barcelona did not want him going on loan and returning to the Nou Camp in the summer with just one year left on his contract.

And Arsenal managed to persuade Barcelona to accept just an option to buy when the Catalan side were initially insisting on a compulsory obligation.

07.00 UPDATE: Newcastle close to record deal

Newcastle are on the verge of breaking their 14-year-old transfer record with a £17million swoop for Atlanta United’s Miguel Almiron.

The Paraguay international, who helped his club win the MLS title last season, is flying into Tyneside tonight to discuss personal terms and have a medical after the two clubs agreed a fee.

He is set to become the costliest player in Newcastle’s history, beating the £16m the club paid Real Madrid for Michael Owen in 2005.

Newcastle are also closing in on a deal to sign Benifica midfielder Andreas Samaris on loan for the rest of the season.

And there could be a third new recruit with Monaco left-back Antonio Barreca understood to be Newcastle-bound.

Barreca was on the Toon’s hitlist this month but interest cooled when the club moved in for Lazio’s Jordan Lukaku.

However when the Belgium defender’s move collapsed last Friday, Newcastle got back in touch with Barreca’s representatives to revive the deal.

06.45 UPDATE: Fellaini set to leave United

Marouane Fellaini is on his way out of Manchester United and heading to the Chinese Super League in a deal worth £10million-a-year.

Shandong Luneng have offered Fellaini a lucrative deal worth £200,000 a week, which will bring an end to his five-and-a-half year spell at United.

Fellaini is out of favour under United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, having played just 31 minutes since the Norwegian took over from Jose Mourinho.

A delegation from Shandong Luneng travelled to Manchester to finalise a deal with United, with the fee for the 31-year-old understood to be about £7m.

06.30 UPDATE: Chelsea want more deals

Maurizio Sarri is keen to get one more deal done at Chelsea before the January transfer window shuts.

Sarri wanted two players in this month and has only managed to sign Gonzalo Higuain, with Christian Pulisic signing but going back to Borussia Dortmund on loan.

“You know my opinion,” Sarri said.

“I thought it was important to have two players. One has arrived, I am waiting for another. If he arrives I will be very happy, but I won’t be too worried. I am happy to play with these players.”
