Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are all looking to complete late deals as the final days of the January transfer window begin. Arsenal have signed Leandro Trossard and will today wrap up the shock £21m capture of Polish centre-back Jakub Kiwior, who has now passed a medical. A surprise loan move for Eduardo Camavinga could also be on the cards, while they have also started talks with LaLiga stars Martin Zubimendi and Ivan Fresneda.
Chelsea have officially signed PSV Eindhoven star Noni Madueke in their sixth deal of the month. Moves to add a midfielder are continuing after failing to sign Moises Caicedo and Yves Bissouma.
Spurs are pushing to sign Nicolo Zaniolo from Roma and remain hopeful over an agreement for Sporting Lisbon wing-back Pedro Porro. Liverpool are eyeing a surprise move for Mason Mount while Manchester United want Harry Kane. Follow all the latest January transfer news, rumours and gossip live below!
Craig Dawson seals his £3.3m switch to Wolves from West Ham – who have stated their “reluctance” at selling the defender.

Watch this space…
Arsenal miss out on Zubimendi
Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi has rejected a move to Arsenal.
The Gunners informed La Real of plans to enact his release clause, worth £52m.
However, Cadena SER claim Zubimendi told Arsenal he will not leave this month amid reports of a summer move to Barcelona.
Kiwior completes Arsenal medical
Arsenal are very close to announcing another new signing to follow hot on the heels of Leandro Trossard.
News emerged yesterday that the Gunners had agreed a shock €25m deal with Serie A side Spezia for Polish defender Jakub Kiwior.
Fabrizio Romano reports that the 22-year-old has now passed his medical in north London and will be announced as Arsenal’s newest player after signing a five-and-a-half year deal.
Lyon interested in Spence
Lyon are believed to be considering a move for Tottenham full-back Djed Spence.
The 22-year-old has played a total of five Premier League minutes since his summer arrival, struggling to make any sort of impression under Antonio Conte.
The Daily Mail report that Lyon would be keen on loaning Spence for the rest of the season if they lose Malo Guston this month.
Ivan Fresneda plays amid Arsenal links
It is worth noting, by the way, that Ivan Fresneda came on as a second-half substitute in LaLiga tonight.
Despite struggling Real Valladolid’s heavy 3-0 defeat away at Atletico Madrid, it seems the teenager gave another good account of himself with an accomplished display.
Might that have been his last game for the club owned by Brazilian icon Ronaldo?
A move to Arsenal appears to be calling very soon.
Ziyech pushing for Chelsea exit
Hakim Ziyech is reportedly looking to secure a move away from Chelsea.
The winger has made just four Premier League starts so far this season, and that is unlikely to improve after the signings of Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke.
Sport claim that Ziyech has offered himself to Barcelona, as he looks to find a club to take him away from Stamford Bridge.
Conte wants two key signings
Antonio Conte believes Tottenham are actually relatively close to competing, feeling two key transfers could help transform the side.
That’s according to journalist Graeme Bailey, with it claimed that the signings of Nicolo Zaniolo and Pedro Porro would likely convince the Italian to sign a new contract.
Discussions continue over a move for Porro, while Zaniolo is keen on a move away from Roma.
Man United with Pellistri decision
Valencia have made another attempt to sign Facundo Pellistri on loan.
The Manchester United winger is keen for more game-time and looks unlikely to get that, having featured for Uruguay at the World Cup. He only made his United debut this month.
The Daily Mail report that Valencia have made a second bid to take Pellistri to Spain for the rest of the season, but Erik ten Hag remains reluctant to let players leave in January.
