We take a look at the top transfer rumours doing the rounds on Monday 21 January.

Tottenham are struggling for options in attack, with Dele Alli and Harry Kane injured and Son Heung-min away on Asian Cup duty so Andy Carroll may be the answer, according to The Sun.

The West Ham forward is a free agent in the summer and could be snapped up for £2million, the paper said.

Former Chelsea and Arsenal defender Ashley Cole may be set for a move to Derby where he will reunite with his old team-mate Frank Lampard, the Daily Mirror says. Ex-England left-back Cole, 38, most recently played for the LA Galaxy and was released at the end of the 2018 season.

Frenkie de Jong continues to be subject of keen interest, with the Daily Mail reporting Barcelona and Paris St Germain are both looking to convince the Ajax midfielder to sign for them.

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is set to finalise his loan move to Chelsea this week, the Daily Express says.

Paul Scholes is set to be named the new manager of Oldham, the Daily Mail says. The Latics dismissed Frankie Bunn last month after six months in charge at Boundary Park.

Matteo Darmian is close to agreeing a loan move to Juventus, the Guardian says.

And finally, Adrien Silva is looking to agree a loan deal with Bordeaux, according to L’Equipe.
