The European transfer window may only have been closed a matter of weeks but already clubs will have an idea where they want to strengthen in January.
Our friends at Football Whispers have scoured media across Europe for the latest news and transfer rumours.
There are more developments in the Philippe Coutinho story, as Liverpool are now contemplating selling their Brazil international for the first time. As reported in yesterday's paper talk, the player's agent is continuing to push for a move in January, and Liverpool are now thought to be entertaining the idea. (Sport)
Zinedine Zidane is looking to sign Julian Draxler from Paris Saint-Germain, with the Real Madrid boss reportedly an admirer of the German international. It's been a slow start to the season for Real who already trail rivals Barcelona in the league, and the club will look to add to their attacking options in the new year. (Don Balon)
Everton are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, and will test the water ahead of making an official bid. The club have tried to sign Olivier Giroud, and reportedly Diego Costa, but will now turn their attention to the Uruguay international as they look to replace Romelu Lukaku. (TuttoMercatoWeb)
Arsenal are "monitoring" Le Havre centre-back Harold Moukoudi. The Gunners hope to secure a deal in January before loaning him back to the Ligue 2 side for the rest of the season. The 19-year-old has also interested Bordeaux, Nice, and RB Leipzig. (TuttoMercatoWeb)
Bayern Munich are trying to sign French Under-18 international winger Willem Geubbels. The 16-year-old is highly thought of in the youth ranks at Olympique Lyonnais, and recently made his debut in the first team, coming on during the 3-3 draw with Dijon. The German champions already had a £7.9m (€9m) offer for the player turned down in the summer. (L'Equipe)
Bordeaux will try to tie Brazilian attacker Malcom down to a new contract after interest in the player from Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg, and Inter Milan. The former Corinthians player is one of the most promising prospects in Ligue 1, and the club want to protect his value ahead of a potential sale by offering him a new deal. (L'Equipe)
Carlo Ancelotti discussed Bayern's interest in Marco Verratti ahead of his side's clash with Paris Saint-Germain, but claimed rumours of the Italian leaving the French club were more to do with him securing a new deal. "He only wanted a better deal with PSG. I know him well. Many players want to leave their clubs when the transfer window is open. But I do not know if many want it just to simply improve their contracts. I do not like these things, this kind of behavior," Ancelotti said. (Le Figaro)
Kevin De Bruyne is looking to extend his current contract at Manchester City beyond 2021. The Belgian midfielder has been a key part of City's early season success, and Pep Guardiola sees him as one of the club's best players. "I am very happy with City. Everything is going well for me. I have no reason to go anywhere else. The project at City is outstanding," said De Bruyne. (Bild)
