The January transfer window will open in a few days and there is a lot of speculation about possible deals. Read the latest gossip below and see all the official appointments.
Chelsea has priority over Haaland
According to Sky Sports Italia journalist Angelo Mangiante, Chelsea would give priority to Erling Haalande’s signature in the January transfer window.
The Blues were the biggest spending items of the Premier League this summer, after spending about £250 million on players such as Hakeem Ziyeh, Edward Mendy, Ben Chilwell and Timo Werner.

However, it seems that Chelsea has not yet finished spending money according to Manjante. Frank Lampard discussed the possibility of signing the star of Borussia Dortmund to make the Blues a candidate for the Premier League title.
Haaland is likely to be one of the most coveted players in Europe when the transfer window reopens and Chelsea is likely to face tough competition from Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
Chelsea has three strikers, but Olivier Giroud is linked to a departure from West London, while Werner did not live up to expectations and in the 3-1 defeat of the Blues was replaced by Arsenal.

Arsenal turns to Brandt for creativity
According to Athletic, Arsenal consider Borussia Dortmund winger Julian Brandt.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is looking to strengthen his wrestling team in January to make it out of the bottom half of the table after a bad start to the season.
Brandt was outnumbered in Dortmund for most of the season, although he was put on the bench for the last two games by BVB’s new coach Edin Terzic.
Arsenal desperately needs more creativity and despite Emile Smith Rowe’s recent good form, Arteta hopes to have more opportunities in January.
Brandt was next on the list of Gunners after the missing Dominik Szoboslaj, who moved to RB Leipzig in January.
Reynolds – SEE and Roma Target
According to Sky Sports Italia, Juventus and Roma want to sign 19-year-old FC Dallas rightback Brian Reynolds.
Juve is considering a move for the boy and lends him to Cagliari, while the Roma are also looking for a defender.
The Belgian club of Bruges is also very interested and is the only one that has already made an offer, which would amount to 7 million euros.
Reynolds has the record for the youngest player in the history of FC Dallas. His dribbling, passing and crosses surpassed all other players in his position in Major League Soccer, making him a target for some of Europe’s top clubs.
– Internazionale considers Juan Musso as the successor of Samir Handanovic, according to Calciomercato. Musso is 26 years old and his current club Udinese have estimated him at 30 million euros, which could be too much for Antonio Conte.
– Christian Eriksen will leave Inter Milan in January and the only question is where he will land now. Calciomercato considers that Manchester United, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are all targeting the Danish international and that the three clubs are considering concluding exchange agreements to attract Eriksen. Man United might consider giving Donny van de Beek on loan, while Inter might watch Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka.
