Premier League transfer news: Coutinho to Manchester United, Malcom to Spurs - December 30, 2017
Just. Two. More. Days. And then the transfer window finally opens and we have something concrete to show for. Not that we don't already as Liverpool sneaked Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for a world record fee.
I don't expect any signing reaching that range, but the January window promises a lot, especially because Manchester City are running away with the league and the other teams would like to catch up a little.
So without further ado, here are the best transfer rumours of the day...
#5 West Ham and Southampton
West Ham are one of the active clubs in the rumours zone. Regardless of whether they actually sign someone or not, their fans could at least claim that they are the very significant in this regard [of being in the news].
According to the Mirror, Jonjo Shelvey has emerged as a target for the Hammers as Newcastle are also willing to sell him for a reported £12 million in a bid to recoup the money they had to while buying the former Liverpool player.
And then there is a report from AS that claim that the Hammers are also looking to sweep Nicolas Gaitan from Atletico Madrid.
Meanwhile, Stoke City manager, Mark Hughes wants to add more strength to his attacking line and has, according to the Daily Mail, targeted former Chelsea forward, Daniel Sturridge. Southampton were also another club who were previously reported to be keen on the Liverpool forward.
