The European transfer window may only have been closed for a month, but clubs will already have an idea where they still need to strengthen. Our friends at Football Whispers have scoured the media across Europe for the latest news and transfer rumours.
Fenerbahce are interested in Manchester United defender Daley Blind, and could launch a bid to sign him in January. The versatile Dutchman has struggled for regular football at Old Trafford this season, having played just 270 minutes in the Premier League and could be tempted by a move away. (Hurriyet)
PSG will make a move for Manchester City target Alexis Sanchez when his Arsenal contract expires in the summer. PSG star Neymar is reportedly keen to play alongside the Chilean, who came close to leaving the Emirates Stadium in the summer for City.
PSG are keen to offload both Chelsea transfer target Edinson Cavani and Julian Draxler this summer in order to complete the deal. (Le Parisien)
Adrien Rabiot is another player who could be on his way out of the French capital after the PSG midfielder admitted he would "love" to play in the Premier League.
The Arsenal transfer target, 22, has started every match for Unai Emery's side this season and is under contract until 2019, but indicated he would like to play abroad in the future and admitted he grew up supporting Liverpool. (RMC)
Lucas Moura has been advised by former Chelsea and PSG defender Alex to leave the French club and join Arsenal. The Brazil forward, 25, has found starting opportunities hard to come by at the Parc des Princes this season following the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.
He has made just two substitute appearances so far and the former Brazil international has urged him to join the Gunners because their technical, passing football would suit his style. (L'Equipe)
Real Madrid could make a move for Cavani next summer. The 30-year-old scored 49 goals in 50 games last season and was named Ligue 1 Player of the Year. But with PSG eager to avoid potential Financial Fair Play punishment having splashed an enormous amount to bring Neymar to the club in the summer, the Uruguayan could be on the move. (Don Balon)
Cristiano Ronaldo has urged Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to sign West Ham target William Carvalho. The 25-year-old Portugal international has been near a Sporting Lisbon exit for some time and his compatriot believes the Santiago Bernabeu is the perfect stage for the next step in his career. (Don Balon)
Tottenham and Liverpool are both keen on signing Inter Milan midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, who is currently on loan at Valencia. The 24-year-old has impressed so far in Spain and the Premier League pair have sent scouts to keep a close eye on the Frenchman's progress. (Tuttomercatoweb)
AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak top PSG's wishlist this summer. While Oblak is said to be the number one target, PSG have a strong relationship with Mino Raiola, Donnarumma's agent.
If Milan fail to qualify for next season's Champions League, Raiola may try to persuade his client to part ways with the Rossoneri with plenty of clubs aware of his talent. (Calciomercato)
Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne has revealed that Barcelona wanted to sign him in the summer. The Italy international was linked with a move to the Camp Nou following Neymar's departure but stayed at the San Paolo, where he has been a key feature for Maurizio Sarri's table-topping side this season.
Insigne, who insisted he is proud to have stayed at Napoli, did admit that the idea of playing alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez appealed to him. (Rai Sport)
