Some big names could be on the move in the coming few months, and we're here to keep you posted on the latest transfer rumours.

With that, here are the top transfer rumours of the day.

Newcastle want Trippier

Newcastle United reportedly want to sign Kieran Trippier during the January transfer window, according to the Sun.
The report claims that the Magpies want to avoid relegation at the end of the current season and are looking to bolster their existing squad. Burnley pair James Tarkowski and Ben Mee are also on Eddie Howe's wishlist.

United to pursue De Jong

Manchester United are reportedly planning to pursue Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, according to El Nacional.
The Red Devils were linked with a move for Philippe Coutinho, but they have no interest in the Brazilian, and would prefer to bring in De Jong. Edinson Cavani, who is being targeted by Barca, could be used as a makeweight in any final deal.

Chelsea & Arsenal interested in Icardi

Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly interested in PSG star, Mauro Icardi, according to Fichajes.
The 28-year-old could leave Parc des Princes in January amid a lack of playing opportunities, and is reportedly on the chopping block alongside six others who could be offloaded to lighten the wage bill.
