Transfer news LIVE: Chelsea swap deal, Bellingham offer to Liverpool, new Camavinga

With less than two weeks until the January transfer window and across the country, elite Premier League clubs will be busy hammering out late deals to expand their squads before the deadline. Arsenal have been active in recent days and sealed their first signing on Friday with the signing of Belgium winger Leandro Trossard from Brighton.

Reports surfaced on Friday night that the Gunners could also be interested in Real Madrid central midfielder Eduardo Camavinga. But now they have been dealt a severe blow in their pursuit and may be forced to look elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are already eyeing up the summer, with rumors growing that they could fall in love with Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane. The 29-year-old also appears to be keen on a move, and whether there will be any developments in the coming days remains to be seen.

Spurs themselves will certainly need to make some signings soon to satisfy Antonio Conte, while the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Newcastle and Leeds can reopen their wallets before February.

Will we see more deals confirmed today? There’s only one place to find out…

Bellingham’s offer for Liverpool

Steven Gerrard has offered to take Liverpool transfer target Jude Bellingham to dinner to persuade the English star to sign for the Reds. Liverpool want to poach the midfielder from Borussia Dortmund but face stiff competition from Real Madrid.

“I’m sure Jude Bellingham is brilliant enough to look at Liverpool who have one of the top five managers in the world,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

“They are building a new stand, they have top-notch facilities. I want Jude Bellingham at Liverpool. I fly to Dortmund and invite him to a nice dinner!

“I think staying in England is important for further growth and development. Just ask him to send me his journal!”


Jurgen Klopp deals with 1,000th game as manager looking to fuel Liverpool’s faltering season and avoid equaling their 70-year-old record, but the German manager has horror stats against Chelsea, with even Manchester City an easier rival.


Jurgen Klopp will take charge of his 1,000th game as Liverpool take on Chelsea this weekend in one of the toughest seasons of his career.

Klopp was one of the most successful managers in modern history, with three league titles and a Champions League title.

He said: “Crazy, I have never thought about numbers like this and I never thought I would be allowed to do it for so long. You have to work 22 years and somehow get there.

“I am truly blessed. Three fantastic clubs gave me the opportunity to do my job. When you get somewhere you never know how it’s going to be and I’m really lucky to know how things turned out, 1000 is a crazy number.
“I’ve done the job I love for the clubs I love. I’m really blessed with that. I still, absolutely appreciate it. Maybe people should get an honor for 1,000 good plays, but I’m not sure anyone would live long enough for that!”

Klopp made a name for himself in his home country after his playing days with second division side Mainz ended.
In 2004, for the first time in the history of the club, the German managed his promotion to the Bundesliga.

He moved to Borussia Dortmund, where he edged out defending champions Bayern Munich in winning two Bundesliga titles.

The 55-year-old’s achievements since joining Anfield are well documented, with Liverpool winning all four major domestic trophies under his tutelage.

Not only did he end the Reds’ long wait for a Premier League title, but in all his seasons in charge he never finished outside the top four.
