Welcome along to Friday’s transfer news live with the latest rumours, gossip and done deals from the Premier League and around Europe. With the window shutting soon, interest in players is likely to spike in the coming days, with Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham and more all looking to strengthen or slim down their squads ahead of the second half of the campaign.

Today’s rumour mill involves Arsenal who are reported to be interested in bringing Real Madrid’s Martin Odegaard to the Emirates on loan. However the 22-year-old is said to prefer a move to Real Sociedad, so watch this space. Tottenham are also one of a number of clubs considering a loan move for Christian Eriksen. Leicester are also thought to be interested in a player whose move from Spurs to Inter Milan has not worked out.

Manchester United meanwhile could reward Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for positioning the club in the thick of the title picture, though there could be many outgoings at Old Trafford, too, with Juan Mata linked to his former club Valencia.

Mesut Ozil’s move to Fenerbahce, United’s deal to bring in Amad Diallo from Atalanta and Sebastian Haller’s big-money deal to leave West Ham for Ajax rank among the most significant deals of January so far. Follow all the latest developments below.
