The January transfer window looms large and rumours continue to grow as clubs monitor their mid-season and next summer'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 eye move for Dest

Chelsea are reportedly considering a move for Barcelona defender Sergino Dest, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The report claims that Thomas Tuchel's side are looking to bring in cover for the injured Ben Chilwell, who will miss the remainder of the season due to an ACL injury. Everton's Lucas Digne and Ajax's Nicolas Tagliafico are also on their shortlist.

Kane and Haaland on City shortlist

Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are still on Manchester City's shortlist, according to ESPN.

Kane was heavily linked with a move in the summer but Tottenham refused to let go of their talisman before his contract expires. City have just sold Ferran Torres to Barcelona, but instead of immediately bringing in a replacement, they will focus on signing a striker next summer.

Arsenal favourites to sign Coutinho

Arsenal are reportedly favourites to sign Philippe Coutinho in January, according to SPORT.

The Spanish paper claims that the Brazilian would be open to moving to the Emirates on a loan deal next month. Newcastle have also been linked with a move for Coutinho as they look to sign reinforcements in order to avoid relegation this season.
