The Premier League season may not be until the end of October, but that does not mean the clubs are not planning their transfer deals in the coming window.
It is a little over two months until the January market opens for business, and with teams reflecting on how they have started the campaign, it seems that a number of entrances and exits are already in the pipeline.
Players will also take stock of their current situations with a lack of playing time or a recovery in form, which may cause them to contact their agents prior to a potential move.
What are the latest rumors and headlines? talkSPORT.com takes a look …
The Manchester United man’s future is under increasing scrutiny after he rejected Ole Gunnar Solskjær after the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.
According to The Sun, Pogba was furious at being left out of start XI – a match in which he was sent off just minutes after coming on the field for a ruthless challenge on Naby Keita.
Although it is claimed that the Frenchman apologized to his teammates after the match, his relationship with Solskjær seems to be far from perfect.
Pogba is out of contract at the end of the season and without a new deal yet to be agreed, it seems more and more likely he can move on.
The Tottenham Hotspur man is another player facing an uncertain future ahead of the January transfer window after being left out of the squad to face Burnley in the Carabao Cup.
Reports from the Daily Mail claim that the player is not injured and simply has not been selected for the squad.
Alli has struggled to show his best form for north London over the last couple of seasons after falling into disfavor under Jose Mourinho.
Unfortunately, it seems that the same thing happened under Nuno Espirito Santo.
After starting the first six games of the season for Spurs, Alli has not played a minute of league play since being sent off against Arsenal.
Arsenal are ready to battle with Manchester City for the Barcelona star, according to Fichajes.
Sergi Roberto is facing an uncertain future with current club Barcelona with his contract expiring at the end of the season.
It is claimed that the versatile midfielder – who can play central midfield, right midfield and right back – will reject any new offer of a new deal to stay at the Nou Camp.
The 29-year-old has played over 300 matches for the Catalan giants and could now make a switch to England, where both the Gunners and City are said to be interested in a switch to the experienced player.
The Liverpool star has been on fire so far this season and Anfield fans are eagerly awaiting news of his contract situation.
Salah has scored 15 goals in just 12 games this season, which has broken a host of records along the way.
The 29-year-old Egyptian striker, signed for 36 million pounds from Roma in 2017, just over 18 months to run on his existing deal in Liverpool.
He has been negotiating an extension for some time and Salah is demanding a £ 500,000-a-week contract to stay with the Reds, according to Football Insider.
Nicolo Barella and Federico Chiesa
Manchester United are said to be chasing the Italian pair, regardless of who is the manager of the club next season.
Spanish Fichajes says Barella, Chiesa and Atletico Madrid’s English defender Kieran Trippier are all targets the Red Devils will pursue.
Former Spurs star Trippier was praised for a return to the Premier League this summer when United were identified as the man to compete with Aaron Wan-Bissaka as a right-back.
Frenkie de Jong
Manchester City will have to compete with Bayern Munich in their attempt to sign the Barcelona midfielder.
The Italian outlet Calciomercato, both European giants, are interesting in awarding De Jong, whose contract expires in 2026, away from the Nou Camp.
Bayern were linked with a move to the Dutch midfielder in January last year, while City were interested in the 24-year-old when he broke onto the stage at Ajax.
West Ham boss David Moyes claimed the clubs missed out on a £ 100m deal for Rice this summer.
Manchester United had the English star on their list of defensive midfield goals, but ultimately decided not to strengthen in that area.
And former Red Devils boss Moyes admitted that Rice is now worth even more to the Hammers ahead of the club’s 1-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Moyes said: “There was a good deal with Declan for £ 100 million. That deal is now gone.
“We have a lot of really good players in this football club and I think while you build and develop, I think people can always come and look at your players.
“But it’s good that they are, because it tells us they’re fine.”
Chelsea are considering switching to the Porto star – who has also attracted interest from Newcastle.
Teacher transfer Nico Schira reports that the Blues have conducted a study on Diaz’s availability along with the Magpies, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
The Colombian national team player is in high demand, and with a release clause allegedly set at £ 67.4 million, it means the Portuguese side may be powerless over approaches.
Given Newcastle’s newfound wealth, it’s a deal they could look to make.
Newcastle are also considering a move for the Wolves captain.
Reports from The Sun claim that Conor Coady is a player on the Magpies’ wish list in January, as they appear to be strengthening their defensive options ahead of the second half of the season.
A switch to the English national team player could reportedly cost around £ 20 million, and the Wolves are obviously reluctant to let such an influential player leave the club.
Brendan Rodgers has denied allegations that Youri Tielemans has rejected a new contract with Leicester City.
The Belgian midfielder is a wanted man with both Liverpool and Manchester United, who are said to be interested in a deal for the star.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are also said to be keen on Tielemans having less than two years left on his contract, but Rodgers said reports that he rejected a deal are untrue.
Rodgers said: “There are reports, but there has been no rejection.
“I think there is only dialogue between the club and your people.
“I think the club is waiting to hear back. But it is something that is beyond my control. What I can control is his mentality, his commitment to the team, and that cannot be questioned.”
Chelsea have been warned by Sevilla that Jules Kounde will not be sold cheaply ahead of the January transfer window.
It is rumored that the Spanish team is in financial difficulties, which means that the Blues have been linked with a low-cost move for the talented central defender.
Chelsea reportedly made a £ 43m bid for the player over the summer, but Sevilla are holding on to around £ 60m and will not be pressured to sell for less.
