PSG closes closer on a deal for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
Ousmane Dembele has been involved in one of the most high-profile transfer sagas of the January transfer window, but it seems like the Barcelona winger will soon be joining Paris Saint-Germain for roughly €20 million.
According to Sky Sports, the France international’s agents are in discussions with PSG, with Foot Mercato reporting that the two parties have achieved a verbal agreement.
Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, and a host of other Premier League teams have been connected with the 24-year-old winger, but it looks like PSG will win the fight for his signature. Dembele’s contract expires in the summer, and his agents have been urgently trying to find a way for him to go during this window, whilst Barcelona wants him to leave to free up money to sign a new striker, such as Alvaro Morata or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

09.24 GMT: Arsenal is in need of a striker and is growing desperate.
According to the Daily Mirror, if Barcelona decides to loan Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal would turn to Juventus loanee Alvaro Morata.
Morata, 29, had a difficult time in the Premier League with Chelsea a few years ago before returning to Atletico Madrid and then loaning to Juve.
Arsenal was linked with a bid for Dusan Vlahovic before he signed a €75 million agreement with Juventus. The club has been told that if they want to sign Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak now, they will have to pay his €90 million release clause, while sources have told ESPN’s James Olley that Lille’s Jonathan David is also being considered, but the Ligue 1 club wants to wait until the summer before releasing him.
Arsenal have been linked with Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, and Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins, but persuading any of those three teams to part ways with a crucial player in the midst of the season would be difficult.
09:07 UTC: According to ESPN’s Rob Dawson, Donny van de Beek will leave Manchester United today to join Everton on loan.
Everton and Crystal Palace have made approaches to the Dutch midfielder, who has opted to join new boss Frank Lampard at Goodison Park. When the deal is finalized, it will very certainly be a one-year loan with no chance to sign him permanently.
Van van Beek and Anthony Martial are expected to return to United in the summer to enable their new permanent manager to survey the group before making choices on individual players.
08.58 GMT: According to the Daily Telegraph, Newcastle United are set to buy Hugo Ekitike from Stade Reims for £25 million with add-ons.
Ekitike, 19, was initially valued at roughly £33 million, but Newcastle are apparently seeking for a bargain and have had a proposal approved.
This season, the striker has eight goals in 18 appearances in Ligue 1 and has been linked with both Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham United.
08:50 UTC: According to Cope, Tottenham winger Bryan Gil is set to join Valencia on loan for the rest of the season.
Six months after leaving Sevilla for Tottenham in a €30 million trade, the Spain international will return to La Liga.
Gil, 20, has a contract with Spurs through the end of the 2025-26 season, although he has only played 86 minutes of league football in nine appearances as a substitute.
08.41 GMT: Juventus have agreed to pay €5 million plus €3 million in add-ons for Gladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria.

08.33 GMT: According to ESPN Brasil, Brazilian club Palmeiras has rejected a €12 million bid from Ajax for their teenage sensation Giovani.
The 18-year-old striker has over 100 goals for Palmeiras’ minor squads and one goal in three league outings for the main club. After scoring in his team’s 4-0 triumph against Santos in the Copa Sao Paulo youth final earlier this month, he has caught the interest of numerous European teams.
Leila Pereira, the president of Palmeiras, said last week that Giovani will only leave the club in this transfer window if his €60 million release clause was reached.
Giovani has been with Palmeiras since he was 11 years old, and his contract with the Sao Paulo club runs through June 2026.
08.22 GMT: Liverpool have been busy, spending €45 million on FC Porto winger Luis Diaz, but now Fabrizio Romano says that they are also interested in Fulham’s Fabio Carvalho.
Liverpool are prepared to pay €7 million for Carvalho, who is highly regarded. Carvalho is expected to continue on loan at Fulham until the end of the season.
Christian Eriksen has signed a deal with Brentford, the club has announced, barely seven months after having a heart episode while participating for Denmark at Euro 2020.
The midfielder has been out of contract since leaving Inter Milan due to his inability to participate in Serie A after the installation of an ICD device, a form of pacemaker that may prevent deadly cardiac arrests.
Eriksen has not played since suffering an on-field heart attack during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland in June, during which he underwent life-saving treatment on the field.
8 a.m. GMT: Barcelona and Arsenal are negotiating a loan move for striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to ESPN sources.
The 32-year-old striker is anxious to join the Camp Nou, and the two clubs are negotiating how much of his £250,000-per-week salaries the Spanish giants can pay. There would be no possibility for a permanent relocation as part of the contract.
Barcelona has notified Arsenal sports director Edu that they want Aubameyang but can only afford a tiny percentage of his contract and are waiting for a response from the north London club, according to ESPN.
