We’re past the half-way point of the January transfer window and it could be a busy fortnight for Scottish clubs.
Celtic have already landed Polish striker Patryk Klimala in a £3.5m deal, but their business isn’t over yet as they are close to signing £2m midfielder Ismaila Soro. Football fans from around the world can buy online Europa League Tickets to enjoy its stunning performances.
The Bnei Yehuda man announced he is Parkhead bound but Record Sport exclusively revealed this morning that the Premiership champions are still looking to resolve some issues before the deal is a go.
Rangers have had a quiet start to the window with incomings but there might be a few bodies going in the other direction.
Steven Gerrard has been vocal in his desire to get some of his fringe players off the books and Jamie Murphy, Greg Docherty, Glenn Middleton, and Matt Polster could leave before the end of the month.
The Light Blues will be hoping to keep the likes of Borna Barisic, James Tavernier and Alfredo Morelos at the club, however.
Hibs are looking to strengthen their midfield after Stevie Mallan’s injury, while Daniel Stendel will be hoping to bring in a few fresh faces at Hearts to put his own stamp on the club.
17-year-old Aaron Hickey has also been linked with a shock move to AC Milan.
Aberdeen has landed their two top targets in Dylan McGeouch and Matty Kennedy on a pre-contract but Derek McInnes has hinted more deals could be completed at Pittodrie.
Benkovic transfer warning
Phlip Cocu has warned Leicester City the time is now to do a deal to bring Filip Benkovic to Derby County.
The Dutchman is keen on the former Celtic loan but admits the Rams are running out of time to come to an agreement.
It has to be this week because if not, we don’t have time. We always have more than one target, of course.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers revealed last summer he viewed Celtic as the perfect option for Benkovic to continue his development but no deal has been forthcoming.
The Croatia international has been limited to just one senior appearance this season.
Leicester braced for Chilwell exit
Leicester is ‘braced’ for Ben Chilwell to leave the club in the summer as Chelsea target the highly-rated left-back.
The Daily Mail claims that Frank Lampard’s side is willing to wait until the end of the season to make their move for the England international.
And Brendan Rodgers is preparing for life without him as the same report suggests they have lined up a replacement in Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand.
United wait on Bruno
Bruno Fernandes’ move to Manchester United remains up in the air despite the Sporting Lisbon star agreeing on personal terms over a switch to Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder is still expected to complete a switch to England during the January transfer window but both clubs remained locked in signing talks.
Sporting Lisbon wants £65m for a player but reports in Portugal claim United are offering a £42m upfront with add-ons which could land Lisbon £68m.
But the Primeira Liga big-hitters are insisting on at least £55m upfront which leaves a £13m discrepancy as things currently stand.
Inter Milan make opening Eriksen offer
Inter Milan have reportedly made an opening offer to Spurs for Christian Eriksen.
The midfielder has made it clear he will not be signing a new deal with the Premier League side when his contract expires in the summer.
That means he could leave for free as Tottenham look to agree on a fee with the Italian side for him to leave in January.
McCall explains Rudden deal
Ian McCall insists he isn’t worried about any clauses in Zak Rudden’s Partick Thistle contract.
Thistle paid an undisclosed fee for the former Falkirk loanee and will be hoping he can fire them up the table.
Clubs abroad often have ‘buyback’ clauses in their deals when they let a highly-rated youth player go and it appears like Rangers have done the same.
McCall admits he’s just delighted to land the striker who starred with Falkirk.
It’s a really really exciting signing,
It was a kind of nominal fee with various things to do with Rangers, we’re delighted he’s here and we think our fans will love him.
There are a couple of things in it, yeah. I think it’s a pretty normal thing, particularly the sell-on, I think we’ve got that with [Liam] Lindsay and [Aidan] Fitzpatrick, who went to Norwich City.
I think there is some sort of clause in it, but that doesn’t trigger for 18 months or so. We’re very comfortable with the deal and so are Rangers and so is the boy.
Ultimately, the deal will not matter unless he does really well. So, if he does really well for us, and then it clicks in, then we’ve all been winners.”
