Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado could be set to leave Chelsea after just six months at the club, with his agent having reportedly flown to Spain to do a deal with Atletico Madrid.

Forgotten Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel – who spent last season on loan at AC Milan – could move to Sunderland on loan for the 2015/16 season.

Sunderland are 6.50 to finish in the top 10 in 2015/16

Liverpool have missed out on the signing of Colombian forward Carlos Bacca, who has opted to swap Sevilla for AC Milan.

Tired of making no progress in their attempts to sign Raheem Sterling, Manchester City have now turned their attentions to Bayer Leverkusen winger Karim Bellarabi who is available for around £25m.

That seems a lot. It does, and the link might well be planted to force Liverpool’s hand over their wantaway winger. 

Sterling is just 1.12 to end the transfer window as a City player
