According to reports in Portugal, Wolves have been linked with a shock interest in Porto left-back, Alex Telles.

The Brazilian defender has also been of interest to Chelsea and Liverpool - and has quickly become one of the highest rated left-backs on the continent.

Of course, Wolves already have Barry Douglas on their books, along with young loanee Ruben Vinagre.

Juventus are also showing interest in Andrea Pinamonti, another man linked with a move to Molineux earlier this month.

Cagliari, Sassuolo, Corontone and Chievo have all reportedly been keen on the young striker and now Italian reports claim Juventus are interested.

Reports also claim that the 18-year-old Inter Milan forward is only likely to leave on-loan this month though.


West Brom

West Brom could be set to offer a Leicester City striker Ahmed Musa a lifeline in the shape of a loan deal, according to reports.

Musa has fallen out of favour at the King Power Stadium, with the likes of Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Reports suggest that Alan Pardew could welcome him to The Hawthorns on-loan this month as he seeks a goalscorer.


Bristol City defender Aden Flint is reportedly a man who could be targeted to replace Jonny Evans, should he leave this month.

The towering defender has impressed for The Robins this season as they continue to push for promotion to the top flight.

However, with Evans' future in doubt, Albion could move to bring him into the Premier League this month.

Aston Villa

Robert Snodgrass won't be getting recalled by West Ham this month, according to reports.

The midfielder has been one of Villa's key players so far this season, impressing regularly in his loan spell at B6.

However, reports dud suggest that David Moyes was keen on bringing the Scot back to London, but due to the details of the loan deal, Villa will be keeping him until his deal expires.

Meanwhile, Cardiff City have moved into pole position to sign reported Villa target Lewis Grabban.

The forward departed Sunderland earlier this month, and parent club Bournemouth are keen to move him on once again - this time in a permanent deal.

Villa, Bristol City, Fulham and Middlesbrough have also been linked with a move.


Walsall's goalkeeping coach Neil Cutler is among a collection of names linked with a move to West Brom as they seek a new goalkeeping coach.

Cutler plays a key role within the staff at the Banks's Stadium, and with Alan Pardew on the hunt for extra staff at The Hawthorns, he could be of interest, according to reports.
