Transfer Rater: Wilfried Zaha to Chelsea, Jonny Evans to Manchester United
Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the whisper.
Here are today's top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
David Luiz to Juventus
The Brazilian centre-back looks set to move from Stamford Bridge in January after falling out with Antonio Conte. The Chelsea manager dropped the 30-year-old after the 3-0 defeat to Roma in the Champions League at the end of October and his only appearance since was in the 4-0 win over Qarabag FK in the same competition. The Daily Mail claim Chelsea could cash in on the defender and it's Juve who are leading the race to sign him as they look to finally bring in a replacement for Leonardo Bonucci.
Theo Walcott to Valencia
Walcott may be handed a lifeline by Valencia according to El Gol Digital. The Arsenal forward is nothing more than a squad player at the Emirates and links to Thomas Lemar and Leon Bailey won't fill him with confidence. The La Liga team are waiting until the summer to make a move for the England international as they believe it will get them a better deal with his contract then just having the 12 months remaining.
Wilfried Zaha to Chelsea
Chelsea are weighing up a bid for Zaha in the January window as they plot ways in which they can bolster their attacking options. The Premier League champions have been linked with Lemar, Bailey and other wide forwards over recent weeks and Zaha definitely fits the bill. However, whenever the former Manchester United man has caught the eye, it's been when playing in a central area.
Jonny Evans to Manchester United
Jose Mourinho is looking to bring in a centre-back during the winter window to fill the Eric Bailly shaped hole he has in his squad with the Ivorian out injured. He wants to bring Evans back to Old Trafford just over two-and-a-half years after he was allowed to leave to join West Brom for £6 million. According to the Daily Mirror, though, Manchester City and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on developments meaning United won't have it all their way.
Sullay Kaikai to Brentford
According to Sky Sports News, Brentford want to bring Kaikai back to the club. The winger spent time on loan with the Championship club last season and impressed before Sam Allardyce recalled him. Brentford, who sit in 13th place in the Championship, want to add a wide forward to their ranks and feel Kaikai is perfect for the role.
