Christian Eriksen to Spurs
Tottenham have been linked with a move for their former midfielder Christian Eriksen as Jose Mourinho looks to add some creativity to his team.
The Dane left north London for the San Siro last January but he he has struggled for minutes under Antonio Conte.
With Dele Alli pushing for a move to Paris Saint-Germain to be reunited with Mauricio Pochettino, Eriksen could be brought in as his replacement.
Alli is desperate to make England’s squad for this summer’s Euros but he has been told by Gareth Southgate that he must be playing regularly.
Pochettino has offered him the chance to impress in Ligue 1 but Tottenham will not sanction the transfer without having a replacement ready.
Duje Caleta-Car transfer falls though
Liverpool were very close to sealing a move for Marseille’s Duje Caleta-Car last night.
According to RMC Sport, the 24-year-old was in ‘advanced negotiations’ with Liverpool over a late move in the January window.
And the report also states that he was Marignane airport until late on Sunday evening with a private jet on standby for him to travel to Manchester ahead of a move to Liverpool.
But negotiations are said to have failed at the final hurdle with Marseille unable to find a replacement in time.
Ben Davies medical
Preston defender Ben Davies is to undergo a medical at Liverpool this morning ahead of his £2million transfer.
Jurgen Klopp has not fit recognised senior centre-backs and has been desperately searching for cover.
Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Fabinho are all sidelined so Davies is expected to complete his switch to provide cover.
The 25-year-old was set to join Celtic this summer but Liverpool have hijacked the deal by meeting Preston’s £2m asking price.
