Chelsea and Tottenham will battle for Everton's Ross Barkley in January
Deadline day has come and gone, and all the latest deals and potential deals can be found here, but there's plenty brewing in the market as clubs begin to look toward January.
Spurs set for Barkley battle with Chelsea
Ross Barkley backed out of a late move in the summer to Chelsea in favour of focusing on his rehabilitation from injury, but an Everton exit in January is still all but certain, reports the Mirror.
The England international was reportedly keen on a move to Tottenham, who will come in again for him once the window opens. Chelsea's interest will likely still stand, too.
The asking price will likely be significantly less than the £35 million the Blues agreed to with the Toffees late in the window, because the 23-year-old could leave Goodison Park on a free transfer in just a matter of months after the January window opens.
Kane leaves door ajar for Spurs exit
Harry Kane insists he is content at Tottenham but would not "rule out anything" when quizzed if he would like to play in La Liga someday.
The England striker has been on an incredible run of goal-scoring form in September and is happy with life at Spurs as their talisman. But when asked about a potential future move, he added: "We'll see what happens."
The 24-year-old struck 13 times last month for club and country, but would likely be forced to move if he wants to command a salary comparable to the highest-earning strikers in the game.
City and United go head-to-head for Pellegrini
Manchester United and Manchester City are set to battle it out for Roma midfield talent Lorenzo Pellegrini, writes Sky Sport Italia (via the Sun).
The 21-year-old has a £22m release clause that could prove highly attractive to the Premier League giants.
The Italy international has developed into one of Serie A's finest midfield prospects after two seasons with Sassuolo. He moved there after starting his career with the Giallorossi, but after shining for the Neroverdi, Roma exercised their €10m buyback clause this summer.
Kroos pleased to have snubbed United
Sometimes players regret key decisions, but Toni Kroos is glad he snubbed Manchester United in 2014 in favour of Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.
The Germany maestro has blossomed at the Bernabeu into arguably the finest central midfielder in the game, claiming two Champions League titles, and he boasted about his well-made decision.
"My change of team was correct. In fact, from my point of view there is no doubt about it," Kroos said ahead of Die Mannschaft's World Cup qualifiers.
-- Manchester City look set to beat rivals United for New York City FC midfielder Jack Harrison, with the Sun reporting the Blues have a first-refusal option on the England under-21 international. The 20-year-old left United's academy as a 14-year-old for family reasons and has since thrived in MLS, but a move home appears to be only a matter of time.
-- Schalke sensation Leon Goretzka will remain with the Bundesliga giants beyond this winter despite the prospect of a free transfer next summer, Sport Bild reports. The German outlet confirms that Barcelona and Bayern Munich are among the European giants eager to land the 22-year-old.
