There is just one day before the January transfer window swings open as clubs from the Premier League and around Europe look to add to their squads as we go into the business end of the campaign.

The window will typically open on January 1 for Premier League clubs, which is also the case in Scotland, Germany and France, but those in Italy and Spain will have to wait until January 3 to make any signings.

A number of players have been linked with players already – with all eyes on Newcastle to see what business they will do under their new Saudi owners – while Manchester United’s Anthony Martial is also seeking an exit.

It’s no surprise that Barcelona are looking to level up under new boss Xavi – who has already signed Manchester City’s Ferran Torres – and now he is reportedly hoping to bring in a new defender in the shape of Matthijs de Ligt.

The Juventus centre-back is said to be eyeing up a new challenge, could it be at the Nou Camp in January?
