Eden Hazard is a fantastic player who would certainly command a large sum in the transfer market, but PSG has the money to chase the Chelsea star. Could the Blues sell the 22-year-old this summer if the price is magnificent? Cavani plus Ibra plus Hazard would be special.

It’s not a transfer window without approaches for Tom Ince. The Blackpool attacking midfielder and son of former English stalwart Paul Ince has 31 goals in 96 appearances for the Tangerines, with seven this year, and Swansea is again publicly expressing interest. The struggle here is that Tom Ince would be available on a free over the summer, making his value in the interim quite nebulous.

Speaking of Swans, Liverpool has denied rumors that they’d allow Raheem Sterling to go on loan to the Welsh side in January.

Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski’s medical must’ve gone well, as the striker has  agreed to a five-year deal to join Bayern Munich in the summer.

Newcastle United has been rumored to want Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella, especially should Yohan Cabaye leave town. Montpellier boss Laurent Nicollin had a bizarre response when asked if the Magpies had contacted him: “Not at all, I don’t speak English.”

West Ham is not only picking up a couple big strikers (one in-house, one on-loan), but have extended Ricardo Vaz Te and released forward Mladen Petric. They’re also trying to extend Carlton Cole‘s contract.

SkyBet has plenty of odds on where Juan Mata ends up, for what it’s worth. PSG, Manchester United and Napoli are the favorites.

Good news for Gus Poyet, as Sunderland midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini isn’t adding any fuel to the fire regarding a return to Juventus despite his slow start in the Northeast.

Thirty-one-year-old Wes Hoolahan of Norwich City is wanted by Aston Villa.

Basel’s in for a load of money as Liverpool joins the race to sign “the Egyptian Messi,” Mohamed Salah.
