Transfer Rater: Ryan Sessegnon to Paris Saint-Germain, Andy Carroll to Chelsea
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.
Ryan Sessegnon to Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain have joined the long list of clubs looking to sign Fulham's teenage sensation. Sessegnon has attracted interest from Premier League sides for well over 12 months with Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United all named as potential destinations. The Daily Mirror claim the Ligue 1 leaders are interested in taking the 17-year-old to France and aren't put off by the £30 million valuation Fulham have placed on him.
Andy Carroll to Chelsea
The Daily Mail claim Chelsea have spoken to West Ham United about the possibility of taking Carroll to Stamford Bridge on loan this month in what would be one of the biggest shocks of the window. Antonio Conte wants to bring in back-up for Alvaro Morata and the Blues believe Carroll is that man. West Ham boss David Moyes doesn't want to let the former Liverpool striker leave but Chelsea believe a deal can be struck.
Troy Deeney to Newcastle United
Deeney is a top transfer target for Newcastle this month, according to ESPN. The Watford forward is viewed by Rafael Benitez as the man to get his team firing again despite the fact he's only netted twice this term, both coming from the penalty spot. Watford turned down a bid rumoured to be around the £30m mark in 2016 and it's unlikely any Newcastle offer will surpass that. However, the Watford captain isn't first-choice under Marco Silva and the club could be tempted into selling him.
Jonathan Viera to Burnley
The Telegraph have claimed that Burnley are hopeful of signing versatile midfielder Viera. The Las Palmas man is thought to be available for £18m this month and would add goals to Sean Dyche's team having been involved in 19 in his last 46 appearances for the Spanish side. The 28-year-old, who is capped by Spain, can play as an attacking midfielder or on the wing and could replace the injured Robbie Brady on the left hand side.
Ryan Fredericks to Stoke City
The Stoke Sentinel have reported that Stoke are interested in bringing former Tottenham academy player Fredericks to the club. The Fulham right-back is out of contract in the summer and could be available for as little as £3m this month. While uncertainty remains over Mark Hughes' future, Stoke still need to bring in defensive reinforcements having conceded the most goals in the Premier League this season. Fredericks could replace Mama Biram Diouf, a striker by trade, as the right wing-back in Stoke's new system.
