Good morning, and welcome to football.london ‘s daily transfer news blog for January 13.
The hectic festive period is at an end, and we are almost halfway through the January transfer window.
In London, Tottenham became the first club since the transfer window system was implemented in 2003 to not make a summer signing this year, so they will be hoping to do some business this month.
Mousa Dembele has been linked with a move to China – with Spurs reportedly accepting a bid for the Belgian. Will that deal go through, and if so, will Mauricio Pochettino’s side replace him?
Elsewhere, West Ham must nervously wait to see what happens with Marko Arnautovic after the Austrian’s agent said the forward wants to leave.
The striker is the subject of a £35m bid from an unnamed Chinese club, but will he stay in east London?
Arsenal continue to be linked with various midfielders, with Barcelona’s Denis Suarez and Sevilla’s Ever Banega reported to be of interest to the Gunners, but they may also need to strengthen at centre back. Unai Emery has already declared that the north Londoners can only complete loan deals, so it could be a tricky task to sign their targets.
Will Ruben Loftus-Cheek remain a Chelsea player or seal a loan move away? And what of Aaron Ramsey’s Arsenal future? Will the Welshman agree a deal with Juventus for the summer or move this month?
Here we’ll guide you through the day’s top transfer rumours from around the world.
