We are a week into the January transfer window, but apart from rumours, there haven't been too many big-name signings yet. The financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic is clearly having an effect on transfers, but deals are still expected to happen this month.

As ever, Manchester United have been linked with a number of players, while Mikel Arteta is focussed on clearing out his Arsenal squad. Liverpool, meanwhile, continue being linked with a host of defenders to plug the hole at the back following injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip.

Here's a look at some of the top transfer rumours of the day from the best sources possible. We will also provide a rating to these transfer rumours, giving our opinion on how likely a particular rumour is to become a reality.

Zidane unclear on Ramos' future

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has admitted he is unsure if Sergio Ramos will stay at the club after his contract expires at the end of the current season.

Ramos is now free to negotiate with European clubs, with both Manchester City and Tottenham, the latter where he would reunite with former Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, while Liverpool are in need of reinforcements at centre-back and have also been rumoured to be monitoring the situation.

Man United target Faivre

Manchester United are reportedly set to rival Paris Saint-Germain in the race for Romain Faivre, according to Le10 Sport.

The midfielder swapped Monaco for Brest only last summer in a deal worth just £450,000, but after an impressive run of form in Ligue 1, his new club could decide to cash in this summer.

Napoli keen on Tierney deal
