Real Madrid line up £50 million move for Spurs star Dele Alli

The winter transfer window is now in full swing! As usual, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to which rumours are picking up steam. Check out all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Real prepare £50m Alli offer

Dele Alli is set to become Real Madrid's No. 1 target this summer with the Express reporting that Tottenham can expect to receive an offer north of £50 million.

The Spurs super talent grabbed his 12th goal of the season in the 2-2 draw at Manchester City on Saturday and has emerged as one of the most exciting midfielders in the world.

Despite only penning a new deal in September, Spurs could be forced into a sale as Real are determined to do whatever it takes to snap up the 20-year-old.

16.55 GMT: Wolverhampton Wanderers could have their hopes of signing Blackburn midfielder Ben Marshall thwarted by Rovers' valuation of the player, the Birmingham Mail reports.

16.28 GMT: And with that Villa bid for Hourihane reportedly submitted, the player has said he would be interested in moving but told Sky Sports: "We'll see what happens next week." Speaking after his side's victory over Leeds, he said: "Aston Villa is a fantastic club. When a manager like Steve Bruce comes looking for you, it does turn your head a little bit."

15.41 GMT: Aston Villa have tabled an offer for Barnsley midfielder Conor Hourihane but could be priced out of a move for Norwich City's Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady, according to the Birmingham Mail.

15.34 GMT: Juventus like the look of Emre Can and are considering a move for the Liverpool and Germany international midfielder, Corriere Dello Sport reports.

Mbodji is currently in action for Senegal at the African Nations Cup, but Sport reckons the 27-year-old is available on loan.

13.08 GMT: Sunderland could fast become the chosen destination for veteran footballers. David Moyes has been linked with a move for 34-year-old free agent Joleon Lescott and 36-year-old Robbie Keane and could line up alongside 35-year-old John O'Shea and 34-year-old Jermain Defoe.

Lescott and Keane have a combined age of 70, but their experience could come in handy during the relegation battle.

12.34 GMT: Diego Costa is expected to be involved for Chelsea against Hull City later today, but that doesn't mean the Spain international won't be leaving this month.

That's if the Sunday Times are to be believed, anyway. They report Chelsea would consider selling their top goal scorer but want a world-record fee of £130m to change hands.

12.09 GMT: Thierry Henry wants Mesut Ozil to commit his future to Arsenal and become a club legend by winning major honours with the club.

"I'm desperate for him to stay," Henry said. "But I understand his predicament. I was in the same situation in 2007 when I joined Barcelona -- with a heavy heart. I didn't know Arsene's plans, either, as he was coming to the end of a contract then, too.

He added: "Mesut has won the World Cup with Germany. But at club level, he has only one title, with Real Madrid in 2012. He will be desperate for more. But he can do that at the Emirates. That's why I'd urge him to stay and become an Arsenal legend.

11.51 GMT: Manchester City, Leicester City and Everton all want Burnley defender Michael Keane, the Sun claims.

It is reported that newly promoted Burnley plan to hold on to the £20m-rated 24-year-old until the end of the season before listening to offers.

11.35 GMT: Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday have been linked with Barnsley midfielder Conor Hourihane, but Tykes boss Paul Heckingbottom said after Saturday's win against Leeds United: "Conor Hourihane is a Barnsley player and until a bid gets accepted that's what he'll continue to do."

11.14 GMT: DONE DEAL West Ham have signed England under-19 international Nathan Holland on a three-and-a-half year contract. 

The attacking midfielder told the club's official website: "It's amazing, I'm quite gobsmacked to be honest. When I first came down, [academy director Terry Westley] introduced me to all the staff and they were all very welcoming. They've shown a lot of faith in me and I just want to repay that and kick on.

"It's all a bit of a family thing down here. Everyone is close together. It's a brilliant set up they've got and I think it will only help me improve. I think I can do that."

10.49 GMT: This week is shaping up to be a busy one for Ipswich Town, with two new arrivals expected. Manager Mick McCarthy has said Toumani Diagouraga and Steven Taylor are close to signing.

10.21 GMT: Ross McCormack has been linked with a return to Fulham on loan after failing to impress following a £12 million move to Aston Villa. But Fulham might first want to think if they are signing a fit player after Steve Bruce left the striker out of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Preston due to fitness problems. "He is nowhere near fit enough to play and be involved," Bruce said. "I don't think he's in a physical shape or state to contribute." 

09.59 GMT: Sunderland are rock bottom of the Premier League and in desperate need of new faces, right? Not according to manager David Moyes: "We will keep looking at our own first, and then starting seeing if there's anybody from outside that can help us."

09.37 GMT: It looks like former Liverpool and Tottenham striker Robbie Keane is heading home after his contract with LA Galaxy expired. He has told Sky Sports: "It's looking likely that it's going to be the UK. It's a decision I will make by the end of next week. I had a little injury there for a while so I just have to get back fit and healthy, start scoring some goals."

09.15 GMT: Another day of rumour and counter rumour is upon us. Stay here for all the transfer drama as it happens. 

PAPER TALK

Man City enter race for Keane

Pep Guardiola is ready to spend big on another centre-back with the Sun detailing that Manchester City are now in the race to sign Burnley's Michael Keane.

City have conceded 28 league goals this season; the most out of any of the top seven teams.

Everton and Leicester are also keen on the former Man United youngster, who could command a fee of £20 million.

The Toffees are continuing to overhaul their squad and Ronald Koeman has now earmarked the 24-year-old after seeing moves for Sunderland's Lamine Kone and Southampton's Virgil van Dijk fail to gather momentum.

PSG ready to pay for Payet

Paris Saint-Germain have entered the race to sign Dimitri Payet, with the Express reporting that the Ligue 1 champions want to beat rivals Marseille to the signing of the West Ham superstar.

The France international is fed up with life in London and is agitating for a return home with his former club thought to be his preference, but Unai Emery's side would be better equipped to match his wage demands.

Nice, too, will attempt to sign Payet to help their surprise title bid, according to the Mirror.

The player is rumoured to have already flown home with Slaven Bilic clueless to his whereabouts as we enter the final 10 days of the window.


Morata won't be a part of Courtois discussions

Real Madrid have initiated talks to bring Thibaut Courtois back to the Spanish capital, but the Mirror reports that they will not entertain the idea of Alvaro Morata being part of a potential swap deal.

Los Merengues want the former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper to replace Keylor Navas and could tempt the Blues with a €30 million offer.

The 24-year-old has rediscovered his best form under Antonio Conte this season, playing a key role in a league-leading 12 clean sheets. But with Courtois' current deal expiring in 2019, next summer could be the last chance to recoup maximum value in a potential sale.

Tap-ins

- Juventus are considering a move for Lyon's excellent midfielder Corentin Tolisso, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 22-year-old snubbed a €30 million move to Napoli last summer but the Bianconeri believe Tolisso could be a perfect fit in Massimiliano Allegri's system.

- Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough want RB Leipzig's young Scot Oliver Burke, with the Mirror revealing that the 19-year-old is unsettled due to a lack of starts.

Burke has started just once for the Bundesliga contenders since his £13 million move from Nottingham Forest and could be tempted to come back to England, at least temporarily, to accelerate his development.

- Borussia Dortmund are looking to add AIK's Alexander Isak to their squad of young superstars.

The 17-year-old looked almost certain to join Real Madrid, but sources have told ESPN FC that BVB's late bid may have turned the Sweden international's head.
