The January transfer window is here and rumours continue to grow as clubs monitor their mid-season and the upcoming summer window's targets.

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.

Chelsea target Perisic

Chelsea are reportedly considering making a move for Ivan Perisic, according to The Mirror.

The 32-year-old is out of a contract at the end of the current season and rather than lose him for free, Inter are willing to listen to offers for the winger this month. Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly interested in the Croatian too.

West Ham & Newcastle want Lingard

West Ham and Newcastle reportedly want to sign Jesse Lingard this month, according to the Daily Star.

The report claims that the Magpies are set to submit a £3million offer for the 29-year-old, while West Ham want the Manchester United man back after a successful loan spell last season. Lingard is out of contract at the end of the season, but both clubs want to sign the player this month.

Man City make Vinicius approach

Manchester City have reportedly made an approach for Vinicius Junior, according to El Nacional.

The report claims that Pep Guardiola has personally contacted the 21-year-old's representatives over a potential summer transfer. However, Real Madrid have no plans to sell the winger and are looking to avoid a repeat of the Robinho deal brokered back in 2008.
