Live transfer updates: Newcastle turns down Bayern offer, Phillips undergoing medical for West Ham.

The current January transfer period has been relatively quiet thus far, but may soon become more active as teams look to strengthen their rosters for the latter half of the season.

Kieran Trippier is being considered by teams such as Bayern Munich, but Newcastle United is expected to try to keep the player who Eddie Howe called the “heart and soul” of the team.

Kalvin Phillips is a sought-after player, attracting interest from Newcastle, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid. Other teams are also keeping an eye on the situation regarding the Manchester City midfielder, who is currently out of favor.

Chelsea is willing to allow Armando Broja to depart, but the condition is that a significant amount of £50m is paid. Both Chelsea and Arsenal have expressed interest in Ivan Toney. Brighton’s Evan Ferguson, who plays as a striker, has also been linked to a potential transfer to Stamford Bridge. However, the Seagulls have set a steep price for the youngster, valuing him at over £100m.

Is there increasing interest in Aaron Wan-Bissaka?

The Sun reported that Manchester United rejected Inter Milan’s offer for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, which reportedly involved a trade for Denzel Dumfries. However, United has no interest in the proposed deal.

It appears that they are not interested in collaborating with Saudi Pro League team Al-Nassr, who are planning to make an offer for Wan-Bissaka as they seek a full-back in the upcoming January transfer window.

According to The Telegraph, the Saudi club made a £20m offer for Tottenham’s Emerson Royal, but it was rejected. They are now focusing on the 26-year-old player whose one-year option at Old Trafford has been exercised, extending his contract until next year.

After bouncing back from a hamstring injury, Wan-Bissaka has played in 13 matches this season and has caught the attention of European teams.

Villa’s second offer for Rogers has been rejected.

Middlesbrough remains steadfast in their assessment of Morgan Rogers and has turned down two successive offers from Aston Villa.

Boro is becoming increasingly frustrated with the offers that Villa has made for the winger. They are seeking a price of approximately £10m for the 21-year-old, who they highly value. However, no specific figure has been communicated to Villa as their preference is to retain a player they only recently signed in the summer.

Rogers moved from Manchester City, where he was regarded as a promising young player. Villa initially offered about half of what Middlesbrough would consider selling him for, but even though they made a better offer, Boro is refusing to budge.

It is believed that Rogers is interested in joining Villa due to their Premier League status and the fact that his family resides in Birmingham. However, it is uncertain if the team from the midlands will increase their offer once more.

I anticipate a challenging conclusion to the transfer period, according to Nuno Espirito Santo.

Nuno Espirito Santo, manager of Nottingham Forest, anticipates a challenging conclusion to the January transfer window as he strives to manage his extensive team.

Nuno is worried about the number of players on the team that he took over, and he intends to sell a few of them because he doesn’t want to end the transfer period with players he doesn’t want on the team.

The activity of Forest will not be impacted by the Premier League’s charge this week for violating profitability and sustainability rules. However, they must balance their transfers and break even.

“It’s quite challenging. One must acknowledge that this window is tough to navigate as the desired targets are often unavailable,” he stated.

“This is a common occurrence at all clubs; the players who are currently available are those who may not be in a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, it also affects us – there is often speculation about our players leaving due to discontentment or certain circumstances.”

“We must exercise caution. Your desires may not always align with reality. We must be prepared for all possibilities during the transfer window as anything can occur.”

Nottingham Forest have asked PGMOL and the Premier League for an explanation regarding Ivan Toney’s controversial free-kick that aided Brentford in their return to winning ways against the midlands side on Saturday.

The Forest manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, expressed dissatisfaction with the incident and the club has sent a letter to the governing bodies to determine if Toney’s actions were considered a foul. The club is seeking clarification on whether players are allowed to manipulate the ball in that manner before a set piece and if not, why VAR did not intervene.

Newcastle has important choices to make regarding the transfers of Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson.

Newcastle United is getting ready to make some major choices in the last 10 days of the January transfer window, as other teams try to benefit from their financial limitations.

The Magpies have turned down a loan proposal from Bayern Munich for important defender Kieran Trippier and have also received and declined a similar request from Atletico Madrid for forward Callum Wilson.

But, they are preparing for potential consequences that may bring about the types of challenges CEO Darren Eales mentioned as a possibility after the club’s new Saudi owners began their £400 million+ spending spree in October 2021, due to profit and sustainability regulations.

Earlier this month, Eales made remarks about Newcastle’s financial situation. The club reported a loss of £73.4m after taxes in their most recent financial report. Eales acknowledged that every player on Eddie Howe’s team is up for sale as the club works to improve their financial standing.
