Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd handed Sancho setback as Liverpool and Arsenal eye £35m star

The countdown is on until the January transfer window opens, with Premier League clubs having just under four weeks to prepare themselves for what is set to be a crazy month of transfers. The summer saw numerous spending records broken, and January promises to be another whirlwind of a window.

Manchester United and Chelsea are both keen to bolster their ranks at both ends of the pitch following underwhelming starts the season, whilst Tottenham are in the market for depth to aid their push for Champions League football.

Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool are also expected to splash the cash, with the title race wide open at present and the introduction of fresh signings likely to prove to be the difference towards the latter stages of the campaign.
