There are less than two weeks left in 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.

Eden Hazard has been subject to a rather bizarre bid from Fenerbahce who want to bring in the Real Madrid winger on loan. According to Ajansspor (h/t Sport), Fenerbache are willing to offer Hazard a way out by offering to bring him to Turkey on a short-term loan. The club are on the verge of signing Mesut Ozil from Arsenal, and Hazard is another name on their wishlist.

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.


Alaba 'agrees' Real Madrid deal

Real Madrid have reportedly agreed to bring David Alaba to the Santiago Bernabeu, according to Marca.

The Austrian's contract with Bayern Munich is set to expire at the end of the current season. Alaba was linked to Madrid since the start of the January transfer window and has reportedly signed a four-year deal with Zinedine Zidane's side.

Ozil to complete Fenerbahce move

The German landed in Istanbul earlier this week after saying goodbye to his Arsenal team-mates. Mikel Arteta confirmed after last night’s win over Newcastle that Ozil was currently going through the medical process and that there was still some paperwork to sort out before the deal is officially announced.

Alli confident of PSG move

Dele Alli is reportedly confident of making a move to Paris Saint-Germain this month, reports the Sun. The England midfielder has been linked with a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino amid a lack of opportunities under Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.

Alli has made just one league start this season, and the report states that the midfielder believes Spurs understand his wish to leave the club on loan to earn first-team football elsewhere.

Madrid eye summer Mbappe move

Real Madrid reportedly believe the best time to sign Kylian Mbappe will be this summer, according to Brujula del Deporte.

Madrid will not make a play for the Frenchman without talking to PSG first. Sporting director Leonardo said on Monday that he "will not beg" Mbappe or Neymar to stay, with the two stars' contracts set to expire in 2022.
