Transfer Rater: Andre Schurrle to West Brom, Aleksandar Mitrovic to Brighton
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.
Sandro Ramirez to Newcastle United
The Daily Mail is reporting that Newcastle have asked to take Everton striker Sandro on loan. The Spanish forward only joined Everton six months ago from Malaga but has scored just once in 15 appearances. He is yet to find the back of the net in the Premier League and with the arrival of Cenk Tosun, the Spaniard looks to be on his way out. Newcastle want a striker after struggling for goals this season, with Dwight Gayle and Joselu on three and four league goals respectively.
Andre Schurrle to West Brom
Former Chelsea forward Schurrle is a West Bromwich Albion target, according to The Times. The 27-year-old World Cup winner is out of favour at Borussia Dortmund, who are willing to subsidise his £140,000-a-week wages to get him off their books. Alan Pardew's side have reportedly opened talks with Dortmund but need to offload players before they can bring him in.
Aleksandar Mitrovic to Brighton
Newcastle have rejected a bid from Brighton for Mitrovic according to the Newcastle Chronicle. The striker is valued at £15 million and the offer from the South Coast club is thought to be considerably lower than that. The Serbian forward is keen on leaving St James' Park after a lack of game time this season but Newcastle don't want to make a loss on a player they bought for £13m. They also would want a replacement in place before letting him go.
Gerard Deulofeu to West Ham United
Former Everton winger Deulofeu has been subject of West Ham interest. Spanish outlet El Gol Digital claim David Moyes' side are willing to pay up to £20m for the Barcelona man. After just five league starts and the arrival of Philippe Coutinho at the Catalan club, the 23-year-old has fallen further down the pecking order at the Nou Camp and is likely to leave this January.
Enzo Cirivelli to Aston Villa
Cirivelli is an Aston Villa target according to L'Equipe, although the French newspaper also reports that Wolves also want the Angers forward. The 22-year-old only moved to the Ligue 1 side from Bordeaux last summer, but it hasn't really worked out for him, with just one goal in 15 appearances.
