Welcome to the 90min Saturday live transfer blog – the place that will keep you up to date with all the breaking news throughout the day.
We are entering the final stretch of the winter window and clubs are getting increasingly desperate with the deadline looming. However, as is always the case, getting deals over the line in January is proving difficult for most sides.
Leading the headlines this morning is the revelation that Man Utd might be out of the race for Erling Haaland, while Arsenal’s pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic is also not looking promising.
Recap all of the biggest stories below…
9:00am – LYON SAY NO TO CHELSEA… THREE TIMES
Chelsea have been trying to recall Emerson Palmieri from Lyon all month but the Ligue 1 side are holding firm.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Blues have had no less than three offers of compensation turned down for the left wing-back, and with moves for Layvin Kurzawa and Ivan Perisic looking difficult, Thomas Tuchel may have to cope with just Marcos Alonso for the rest of the season .
08:45am – JOAO FELIX ON THE MOVE?
Joao Felix is still young but even his biggest supporters would have to admit that his time at Atletico Madrid has been pretty underwhelming.
Far from a guaranteed starter for Diego Simeone the forward might be ready for a fresh start with Ruben Uria claiming that Barcelona are interested. How a club with such deep-set financial issues could afford a move of this magnitude is anyone’s guess.
08:30am VLAHOVIC RESISTING ARSENAL BUT WANTS CITY
Everything reported so far this month has pointed towards Dusan Vlahovic not really fancying a move to Arsenal, and Fiorentina director Joe Barone yesterday hinted that the switch was unlikely.
However, that is not to say Vlahovic does not fancy a Premier League move. As per La Repubblica, the striker would be interested in joining English champions Man City if they came in for him in the summer.
08:20am GOOD MORNING!
It’s Saturday, so we can likely expect a quieter day than normal as teams across the globe ‘die to get three points,’ in the words of Neil Warnock.
Even still, we should have a lot of chatter to digest so make sure you keep your eyes peeled on the 90min live blog today.
