That's all for today folks. Ciao!

Manchester City are considering using Sergio Aguero as part of a deal to bring Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann to the Etihad Stadium.

Atleti have made contact with Aguero regarding a return to the Spanish capital, with Diego Simeone keen to unite the Argentine with Diego Costa.

City, meanwhile, are weighing up a move for Griezmann this summer and could use the Liga outfit's interest in Aguero as a negotiating tool.

Liverpool are weighing up a shock move for West Brom forward Salomon Rondon.

The 28-year-old has scored just three Premier League goals for the struggling Baggies so far this season.
...
Antonio Conte has affirmed that Michy Batshuayi's exit from Chelsea depends on the Blues landing Edin Dzeko from Roma.

Batshuayi has been linked with a loan switch to Sevilla, while Dzeko is expected to complete a return to the Premier League in the current transfer window.

Roma are interested in Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu.

The Spaniard, who rejoined Barca from Everton last summer, has been tipped to leave the Nou Camp this month with Milan and Napoli have also been linked with the 23-year-old.

It is believed Barca would seek a fee of around €20m for the winger.

Real Betis are ready to make an offer to sign Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura.

Lucas has been told to find a new club by PSG coach Unai Emery and he has been linked with Premier League trio Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham.

The Brazilian reportedly turned down a loan move to Betis in December, but his agent was invited to watch the game at home to Barcelona last weekend.

That has reportedly helped to boost Betis’ chances of signing Lucas and they are now prepared to offer an initial €18 million, with add-ons taking the deal to €30m.

Gremio midfielder Arthur Melo has agreed to join Barcelona ahead of a clutch of other leading European clubs.

Barcelona have persuaded the 21-year-old to reject reported interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid in order to move to Camp Nou.

The Catalan club must now agree a deal with Gremio, who have previously insisted that Arthur will not leave the club for less than his €50m release clause. 

However, Barca hope to agree a deal for around €25m and would be prepared to allow Arthur to spend another year on loan at Gremio as part of the package.
...
Roma are in talks to sign Atletico Madrid attacker Yannick Carrasco on loan with a view to a permanent deal, claims.

Arsenal and Chelsea had been linked with a move for Carrasco following reports Atletico are looking to offload the Belgium international.

But, with Edin Dzeko set to join Chelsea, Roma have moved for Carrasco and will offer €25m to sign the 24-year-old permanently at the end of his loan.

...
Arsenal are considering an approach for Corinthians midfielder Maycon, with a view to a summer transfer.

The 20-year-old has been watched regularly by Arsenal scouts and appears to have demonstrated enough to persuade the Premier League club to step up their interest.

Maycon, who has also been linked with Napoli, could cost around £9 million, with Corinthians keen to have him back on loan.
...
Napoli are hoping to agree a deal to sign Benfica full-back Alejandro Grimaldo in the summer as a potential replacement for Faouzi Ghoulam.

Ghoulam only signed a new contract with Napoli in December, but the Serie A club fear his €60 million release clause will not deter the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain from making a bid.

As a precautionary measure, Napoli have lined up Grimaldo, who has also been linked with United, as a replacement and are ready to offer €30m for the 22-year-old Spaniard.

Alex Sandro is Manchester United’s primary target, if Jose Mourinho decides to sign a new left-back in the summer.

Mourinho has abandoned plans to bring in a left-back in January, having also been linked with the likes of Tottenham’s Danny Rose and Celtic’s Kieran Tierney.

However, if Mourinho decides to sell Luke Shaw, who has endured a resurgence in form of late, at the end of the season, then he wants Alex Sandro from Juventus.

Chelsea have previously tried to sign Alex Sandro, but have found Juventus to be reluctant sellers amid reports the Italian champions want in excess of €60 million for the Brazilian.

Manchester United's interest in Borussia Dortmund teenager Christian Pulisic has cooled.

While the Red Devils had previously been rumoured to want the U.S. international, Alexis Sanchez's signing means Jose Mourinho will turn his attention towards other areas of the team.
...
...
Borussia Dortmund boss Peter Stoger has praised Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s attitude and said he hasn’t yet been ruled out of playing against Freiburg on Saturday.

“Today is Wednesday and everything is fine by me,” he said.“If I had the impression that he would disturb the team then I would react differently.

“If I get the impression nearer to Saturday that it’s disturbing the team then I won’t select him for the squad.”
...
With Alexis Sanchez now in attack, Manchester United are turning their transfer focus to the central midfield area.

Borussia Dortmund's Julian Weigl, Valencia's Carlos Soler and Nice's Jean Michael Seri are the primary targets for the Red Devils, while Shakhtar Donetsk's Fred, also pursued by Manchester City, is an option, too.

Inter remain in pole position to land Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge.

Sturridge is not in Jurgen Klopp's first-team plans, and is keen to secure a loan move for the remainder of the season. 

Inter's interest, however, remains the only concrete offer on the table so far for the striker, who is reportedly reluctant to move to Serie A.
