With just two days left in the January transfer window, speculation is heating up as teams highlight areas of need and others become desperate in search of a catalyst for change. 

Biggest News and Rumours

Moussa Dembele has opted for a move to White Hart Lane and is reportedly undergoing a medical at the London club despite continued interest from Manchester United. He will remain at Craven Cottage for the remainder of the season, however, as he continues his development in Fulham's first team. 

The Sun are reporting that Diego Simeone will use Jackson Martinez in an effort to bring Diego Costa back to the Vicente Calderon. The paper reports that Costa "frequently speaks to his former Calderon teammates and pines for a return to the Spanish giants." Atletico Madrid have been hit with a transfer ban by FIFA but have had that suspension temporarily lifted as FIFA's appeals committee investigate the case. The report suggests that Atletico will return in the summer for Costa if they can not trash out a deal in the coming days.

Loic Remy is reportedly set for a move away from London with Chelsea and the table-topping Leicester agreeing a fee for the French striker. The fee is said to be in the region of £11.5 million for the former Newcaslte and QPR striker. 

Meanwhile, Gabby Agbonlahor will remain at Aston Villa after a deal with a Turkish club has fallen apart.

Dwight Gayle is the subject of a £7 million bid from Swansea as the unsettled Crystal Palace striker might welcome a move away from the London club.
