Here are all the ways to follow the action with Sky Sports

Pau Lopez (Espanyol to Tottenham)

Spurs have reportedly made a number of offers for the 21-year-old goalkeeper, who worked with Mauricio Pochettino when he was in charge at the Cornella-El Prat.

Guillem says: A loan deal worth €600,000 has been agreed. He has got to decide whether he wants to make the step. Espanyol expect that he will.

Ignacio Camacho (Malaga to West Brom)

Also a rumoured target for Liverpool this transfer window, the 26-year-old midfielder has spent his entire career in La Liga and has been at Malaga since 2010.

Guillem says: West Brom have agreed the price with Malaga, the €18m of his release clause. Malaga wants it paid in one go and the offer for now is 15 plus 3m in add-ons. West Brom have agreed everything with the player too, and Malaga are looking for a replacement. The player expects West Brom to trigger his buy-out clause if an agreement is not reached otherwise and at that point there is not much Malaga can do about it.

Isco (Real Madrid to Tottenham)

The Spaniard continues to be linked with a move away from Madrid, and is yet to feature for the Champions League winners this season after picking up a knock.

Guillem says: I don't believe that at all. Isco is understood to have turned down an offer from Juventus. But I expect him to stay.

Marcos Rojo (Man Utd to Valencia)

Rojo is reportedly not in Jose Mourinho's plans, but Sky sources understand the defender has no interest in leaving despite facing stiff competition for a starting berth at Old Trafford.

Guillem says: The Argentina international is one of the centre-backs Valencia are looking at to replace Shkodran Mustafi. His wages at Old Trafford are very high so that could prove to be a stumbling block.

Vicente Iborra (Sevilla to Sunderland)

David Moyes confirmed Sunderland's interest in Iborra, who has won the Europa League with Sevilla for the past three years and made 47 appearances last term, scoring nine goals.

Guillem says: Sunderland have increased their offer from €8m to €9m and I think David Moyes is confident of getting his man. Iborra is willing to make the switch to the Stadium of Light too, where he will double his wages.
