RODGERS SWOOPS FOR WINSTON REID

Liverpool 
are thought to be weighing up a £6.5m bid for West Ham centre-back Winston Reid. The New Zealand international is out of contract in the summer and has refused to sign a new deal, a situation that has put Brendan Rodgers on red alert as he seeks to boost his side's defensive options.

According to The Sunday Mirror, The Hammers are eyeing Spartak Moscow's Vedran Corluka as a potential replacement.

CABAYE TO STAY IN PARIS?

We told you earlier that Tottenham were keeping tabs on PSG's Yohan Cabaye ahead of a potential summer switch, but the player himself has appeared to rule out a move back to the Premier League.

"I'm not the type of person that flees when they encounter difficulties. I've never talked about leaving because I didn't want to leave", the former Newcastle man told Telefoot.

"I'm with great players and I take pleasure from that. I don't want to leave as a failure. The most important thing is to show a positive demeanour and behaviour".

BUSY DEADLINE DAY FOR VILLA?

Aston Villa's thrashing at the hands of Arsenal earlier today has heaped more pressure on manager Paul Lambert. It is no surprise, then, that the Scot has refused to rule out reinforcing his confidence-sapped squad before the window slams shut.

"We've definitely got enough, that's for sure, but if we can do one or two more we'll try", he said after this afternoon's crushing 5-0 defeat.

RECAP – UNITED TARGET CENTRE-BACK MARQUINHOS 

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal promised a quiet January at Old Trafford, but reports in The Sun suggest he is preparing a late bid for PSG’s talented Brazilian defender Marquinhos.

The fee could prove a stumbling block with the French giants demanding a massive £112m, but the Red Devils are hopeful of negotiating that figure down to around £35m.

REUS TO ARSENAL?

According to The Daily Star, Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus could be on his way to Arsenal.

The 25-year-old German international has a £20m release clause in his contract that becomes active in the summer, and the Gunners lead the chase for his signature despite rumoured interest from Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United. Whoever picks him up at that price has got themselves one hell of a bargain.

BURNLEY BATTLING TO KEEP INGS

Danny Ings is a man in demand, with both Tottenham and Liverpool linked with dramatic deadline day #swoops for the striker.

But Star Sunday report that Sean Dyche's men will look to fend off interest in the 22-year-old and convince him to stay.

CUADRADO DEAL IN DOUBT?

Chelsea had been expected to sign Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina in a £24.8m deal before the transfer deadline but Sky Italia report that the move could fall apart because of an issue with Mohamed Salah's move the other way.

Salah is set to join Fiorentina as part of the deal but he must undergo his medical in London, because he doesn't have enough time to finalise his contract and fly to Italy.

Looks like this one is going to the wire...

KEVIN STROOTMAN UPDATE

It's been on, it's been off, it's been on again and now it looks like it might just be off once more. Manchester United's pursuit of Kevin Strootman has taken a fresh blow, with Roma boss Rudi Garcia confirming he will miss the remainder of the season.

"Losing him, especially after a long injury, is a catastrophe for us," he told reporters. "The season is over for Strootman."

Manchester United target Strootman out for the season

ARSENAL EYE SCHNEIDERLIN & KRAMER

Everybody - and I mean everybody - knows that Arsenal need a defensive midfielder. Apparently Arsene Wenger has finally realised himself, with the Daily Mail reporting that he has identified Morgan Schneiderlin and Christoph Kramer as potential summer acquisitions.

The Gunners would have to pay £30m for Kramer and £25m for Schneiderlin. GET IT DONE, ARSENE.

WILSON SET FOR BUMPER DEAL

James Wilson has enjoyed something of a meteoric rise at Manchester United and the Daily Star report that he is set to be rewarded with a massive pay rise.

The 19-year-old currently earns £5,000-a-week but will see his wage rise to £20,000 before the summer.

SCHURRLE UPDATE

Andre Schurrle had been expected to complete a move to Wolfsburg before the transfer deadline - paving the way for Juan Cuadrado to join Chelsea - but the German club have now expressed doubts over the deal.

"There is no agreement at the moment," sporting director Klaus Allofs told Wolfsburger Nachrichten. "The clock is running out. Our options are getting less hour by hour."

Jim White will be delighted.
