Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's latest transfer news and rumours roundup. Though the January market is now closed, it has not stopped the clubs from looking at potential summer recruitments.
And as always, there are stories which make headlines irrespective of the transfer window being open or shut. On that note, let's take a look at all the top transfer stories that made headlines on February 7, 2018:
Luis Suarez on Chelsea's radar
According to Sport, Chelsea are pondering over the idea of sacking Antonio Conte with Luis Enrique being the club's pick to replace the Italian. Enrique is currently on a sabbatical but may get offered a hefty deal from the Blues this week.
L'equipe have gone one step further in reporting that if Enrique takes over at Stamford Bridge, he will look to raid his former club FC Barcelona for Luis Suarez. Enrique is keen on working again with the Uruguayan striker and will demand the Chelsea board to make his wish come true in the summer.
Marco Asensio also linked with a move to Stamford Bridge
The Daily Mirror reports that Marco Asensio is high on Chelsea's priority list in the summer. After emerging as one of the youngsters to watch out for, the Spaniard has failed to live up to the expectations this season due to limited playing opportunities.
The Blues are long-term admirers of the winger and are looking at making a £120 million bid for Asensio. But it is believed that any move for the 22-year-old hinges on the future of Eden Hazard who is tipped to go the other way in the summer.
