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

Rodgers to wait for Man City

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is reportedly set to dismiss advances from any potential suitors as he believes he can succeed Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

That's according to the Daily Mail, who claim that the Foxes' box was reportedly on Newcastle United's managerial shortlist, but is set to snub any approach from interested clubs in case Guardiola steps down at City next season.

Liverpool consider Coutinho return

Liverpool have reportedly not ruled out the possibility of re-signing Philippe Coutinho, according to El Chiringuito.

The Brazilian playmaker has struggled at Barcelona since leaving Anfield, and could be on his way out of the club as the LaLiga giants look to further reduce their wage bill.

Barca lead Lingard race

Barcelona are reportedly leading the race to sign Manchester United man, Jesse Lingard, according to the Daily Mail.

The England international is the final few months of his contract at Old Trafford, and is expected to leave at the end of the current season. Lingard was linked with a switch to West Ham, where he spent half of last season on loan, but according to reports, Barca could make a move for him. Milan are also keeping tabs on the 28-year-old.

Koeman owes Barca job to Jordi Cruyff

Ronald Koeman reportedly owes his Barcelona job to Jordi Cruyff, who "begged" Joan Laporta to give the Dutchman more time at the club.

Catalan television channel TV3, via the Daily Mail, have claimed that it was Cruyff who changed Laporta's mind about Koeman. The report claims that Cruyff's argued that Koeman be allowed to oversee the squad until the injured players return to fitness - a plea that Laporta seemed to agree with.
