Manchester United have submitted a £25million bid to sign Birmingham’s teenage midfielder Jude Bellingham. Still only 16, Bellingham has been linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs and the Red Devils are moving quickly to secure his signature. Birmingham are willing to let their starlet leave this month, but want him to return on loan until the end of the 2020/21 season as part of any deal. ( The Times )
Tottenham have opened talks with Real Madrid over the possibility of signing Luka Jovic as a replacement for Harry Kane. The England captain and Spurs talisman will be sidelined until April at the earliest through injury and Jose Mourinho wants to add a new centre-forward this month as cover. Jovic has struggled throughout his first season with Los Blancos and Mourinho wants to bring him to London, with talks started earlier this week. However, Real chiefs rejected Tottenham’s approaches as they want to hold onto Jovic as the 22-year-old is considered a star of the future. ( Defensa Central )
Arsenal’s sporting director Edu has met Bruno Guimaraes’ representatives as Arsenal try to sign the Athletico Paranaense midfielder.

Guimaraes, who has also been linked with Chelsea, could cost Arsenal around £26m. ( Goal )
Chelsea have been chasing Timo Werner this month but Liverpool have now entered the race for the Germany striker. The Reds were expected to only make their move in the summer, but Chelsea’s immediate interest means Liverpool may have to push for Werner this month with a £60m bid touted. Werner, the 23-year-old RB Leipzig forward with 18 goals in 17 games this season – has made it clear he wants to play in the Premier League. ( Mirror )
Everton hope to sign former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can and have prepared a £30m bid. Can is out of favour at Juventus and Carlo Ancelotti wants to bring him to Goodison Park this month. Everton may struggle to convince Can to sign, however, due to his past relationship with Liverpool. The Germany midfielder has already ruled out a move to Manchester United because of his association with the Reds. ( Mirror )
Crystal Palace are close to signing Scott Banks from Dundee United with a fee agreed between the two clubs for the Scotland Under-19 winger. Banks signed a pre-contract with Palace earlier this month and would have joined for a compensation fee in the summer, but it appears the move will now go through in January as an agreement has been reached between the two clubs.
