Nacho Monreal to Barcelona
The La Liga champions are, according to Mundo Deportivo, considering a move for Monreal who is out of contract next summer.

The Leicester City left-back has been called up to the England squad for the friendly against Switzerland, where he will challenge Danny Rose for a place in staring XI. The future of Rose, the current Spurs left-back, is unclear, and he was linked with a move away from the club this summer. According to the Telegraph, Mauricio Pochettino's side could look to secure Chilwell's signing before offloading Rose, with the 21-year-old providing an alternative to Ben Davies on the left.
Benjamin Pavard to Barcelona
The 22-year-old World Cup winner has reportedly been offered to the La Liga champions, who are continuing to reshape their squad. The versatile France international, who can play on the right side of defence or at centre-back, would be available for a fee of around €35m next summer according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.
Hirving Lozano to Atletico Madrid
PSV's Mexican winger impressed during the World Cup this summer, especially in the win against Germany in which he scored. And the 23-year-old has continued his fine form, scoring four goals and claiming two assists in seven games for the defending Eredivisie champions this season. That has led to interest and Atletico Madrid are one of a number of sides keeping an eye on his progress according to AS.
Mesut Ozil to Fenerbahce
Fenerbahce are set to make a shock move for the Arsenal star in January, according to Turkish outlet Fotomac. The 29-year-old only signed a new contract at Arsenal in February but there have been reports about a fallout with new Gunners boss Unai Emery.
