Wolves are being listed as one of the favourites to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson this month.

Bookmakers have Nuno Espirito Santo's side behind Chelsea in the race for the 26-year-old's services, with the Blues reportedly eyeing him up as they search for a striker this month.

The Cherries forward recently made his senior England debut, and is likely to draw plenty of interest over the coming weeks should his fine form continue.

Meanwhile, Wolves are also reportedly interested in Sunderland youngster Josh Maja.

The striker has turned down the offer of a new deal at the Stadium of Light, amid Premier League interest in his services.

Huddersfield, Manchester City and Crystal Palace are also reported to hold an interest in the highly rates starlet.


West Brom

The Baggies reportedly face a battle with Aston Villa if they want to sign James McCarthy on-loan this month.

The midfielder has made 132 appearances for Everton, but is seeking his first appearance this season, having recovered from a broken leg, coincidentally picked up against Albion last season.

It's reported that Bournemouth and Fulham are also interested in a move for the Irishman.


Aston Villa

Forgotten Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Tshibola is reportedly being offered to teams in Serie A.

Reports on the continent suggest that the 24-year-old, who joined Kilmarnock on a season-long loan in the summer, could be brought back and shipped out elsewhere this month.

The report states that he'll stay at the Scottish club for the remainder of the season if no other club can be found.

Villa are reportedly battling Derby County for the signing of Watford's Ryan Cassidy.

The 17-year-old forward has been in phenomenal form for the Hornets' youth sides over the past two seasons, scoring 12 times so far this season for their U23 side.

Everton are also reported to be keen on a move for the starlet, with Marco Silva knowing him from his time at the club.


Walsall could be set for a cash injection this month, should Rico Henry depart Brentford for Aston Villa.

Dean Smith is being linked with a move for the left-back, with Villa eyeing a move for a left-sided full-back as competition for Neil Taylor.

Henry departed the Banks's for £1.5m in 2016, a fee which could rise to £5m, with a sell-on clause thought to be included.
