Christian Eriksen to Inter Milan – £17m ($32.2m)
The Tottenham playmaker has been pursued by the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus with Eriksen available on a free transfer in the summer.
But Spurs are desperate to flog the Dane this month and avoid losing him for nothing at the end of the season.
It leaves Serie A giants Inter leading the race, with Antonio Conte’s side ready to stump up the cash to sign the 27-year-old right now.
The player’s agent has already met with the Italian giants in Milan – who offered Eriksen a four-year deal – with Spurs set to receive a £17m bid for the midfielder.
Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United – £55m ($104m) swap deal
United are desperately in the market for a midfielder after injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay.
Old Trafford bosses were put off signing Sporting Lisbon captain Fernandes in the summer after being quoted a £60m price tag.
But is claimed United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went to watch him play against Porto recently and is prepared to offer Sporting £55m plus players to sweeten the deal.
After failing to sign the midfielder in the summer Fernandes signed a new contract with an £85m release clause, meaning United face a battle to agree a reasonable transfer fee.
Olivier Giroud to Inter Milan – £5m – £10m ($9.5m – $19m)
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted experienced Frenchman Giroud has been in contact with Inter as reports even claim the striker has agreed a deal to link back up with ex-Blues boss Conte.
But Lampard said the 33-year-old – who has been frozen out of the Chelsea side for Tammy Abraham and Batshuayi – can only leave if the deal makes sense for the club.
Giroud is available on a free next summer so Inter are pushing for a cut-price deal, not willing to pay over £5m.
But it is claimed Chelsea will hold out for £8.5m as they prepare to let Giroud go this month, with the forward also being offered an escape by Lyon.
Dayot Upamecano to Arsenal – £50m ($95m)
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta admitted the club are in for a defender, with an injury to Calum Chambers and a loss of faith in German Shkodran Mustafi.
RB Leipzig centre-back Upamecano is the Gunners top target, after the club failed with a £40m bid in the summer.
But it is claimed Emirates bosses will go all out for the 20-year-old this month with a £50m offer being lined up.
Leipzig lead the Bundesliga currently, so will only let the defender go if their transfer valuation is met – something the Gunners are also waiting to find out.
Tahith Chong to Juventus – Free Transfer
Young Dutchman Chong has just six months left on his Old Trafford deal, and Italian champions Juventus are preparing to offer the winger a £35,000-a-week contract and a mega £2m signing on bonus.
The deal will be similar to when Juve poached a young Pogba in 2012 after the midfielder ran down his Old Trafford deal and fell out with Sir Alex Ferguson.
Chong could complete the transfer this month, before leaving for Turin in the summer, despite United pushing to tie down the forward.
The 20-year-old has only made nine appearances this season, and wants to seek more regular first-team football.
Krzysztof Piatek to Tottenham – £28m ($53m)
After hitman Harry Kane was ruled out until April with a hamstring injury, Spurs were left scrambling for a goalscorer.
With Jose Mourinho not wanting to blow all his spending money on a replacement striker he landed at AC Milan forward Piatek as his No1 target.
Spurs are set to pay Milan an initial fee of £23.8m — with a further £4.2m to come in add-ons.
Piatek joined AC Milan from Genoa for £30m in January last year after scoring 13 goals in his 19 games for them following a £3m move from Cracovia.
Ashley Young to Inter Milan – Undisclosed fee
Inter are seriously looking to take on experienced talent at a bargain price as Young, like Giroud and Eriksen, has already spoken to the San Siro club over a move.
But United desperately want to hold on to their skipper and offered him a one-year extension.
Young, though, rejected the contract approach as he wants to link up with ex-Old Trafford forwards Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku under ex-Chelsea boss Conte.
The Serie A giants could agree a pre-contract with the United captain this month, but it is understood the Premier League side will not let him leave on a free in the summer and could negotiate a transfer fee with Inter.
