With time ticking away, the January transfer window will be upon the clubs of the Premier League soon, with most teams keeping an eye open before then in an effort to scout new players.

Today’s rumblings concern some of English football’s biggest clubs, with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea all seemingly eager to bolster their contingents.

Jurgen Klopp has reportedly turned to La Liga to solve a problem area, while Louis van Gaal is seemingly keen to steal a young star from the reigning Premier League champions. With Diego Costa not firing, another day sees another new striker linked with Chelsea.

The young star joined the West London club from Anderlecht in 2012 but has found first-team opportunities blocked by the Blues’ star-studded squad.

Despite the fact that Musonda signed a new contract with Jose Mourinho’s men in March, a fee in the region of £10.6 million is believed to be adequate to see him move to Old Trafford.

The report claims that Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping tabs on the situation.

Liverpool look to replace Mignolet with Ter Stegen

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will surely be looking to strengthen his contingent come January and the latest name linked with the Reds is Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, according to Fichajes.

Simon Mignolet has endured an inconsistent tenure since moving to Merseyside from Sunderland and the latest reports suggest that the German trainer will look to one of his countrymen to replace him.

With Barcelona playing Claudio Bravo in La Liga and leaving Ter Stegen to European duty, it is believed that the allure of regular football week-in, week-out could convince the former Borussia Monchengladbach man to join countryman Klopp at Anfield.

Chelsea turn to Alcacer in striker hunt

With Chelsea struggling for form and nowhere near as clinical a side as last season, Valencia striker Paco Alcacer is the latest name to be mentioned as a potential solution, as reported by Metro.

With Mourinho’s men in need of some inspiration, the report suggests that a January move for Alcacer could well be on the cards.
