Manchester United are aiming to bring in Juventus star Arturo Vidal if reports are to be believed. It's rumoured that David Moyes sent representatives from Old Trafford to scout the Chilean star during Juventus' 3-0 hammering of Roma.

Chelsea are also said to be actively looking to bring in big names, despite Jose Mourinho stating they would not be active in the market this month. They've been heavily linked with bringing former ace Nemanja Matic back to Stamford Bridge, and Benfica are now said to be open to negotiations.

Now across London to Arsenal, where Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he did try to sign Robert Lewandowski before he penned his five-year deal with Bayern Munich. Wenger told how he wanted to bring the Polish striker to the Emirates, but that he was always set on a move to the German champions.

And it would seem the Gunners aren't the only side aiming to bring in new strikers this transfer window, as Tottenham have been credited with interest in Juventus duo Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella. Reports suggest they're looking to bring in a replacement for the outgoing Jermain Defoe.

Now to Spain, where Real Madrid have reportedly told clubs chasing Fabio Coentrao that they can have the Portuguese full-back for £12million. The versatile Madrid man has been linked with the exit door, with Manchester United showing particular interest.

That's in stark contrast to reports emmanating from the Nou Camp, where it's now rumoured that Barcelona will be keeping hold of rising star Cristian Tello this month. The forward was thought to be ready for a loan move to the Premier League, but his club want to keep him until at least the end of the current campaign.
