One player linked with each Premier League club before transfer deadline day
We have only a few days left of the January transfer window.
It has been a particularly quiet transfer window so far, but we can expect to see things heat up over the weekend as Premier League sides begin to panic in their bid to bolster their squads.
As rumours continue to fly, we take a look at one player that could join each Premier League team before Monday’s deadline...
Arsenal - Douglas Luiz
Arsenal were linked with a move to Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz yesterday after they missed out on Bruno Guimaraes.
The midfielder has impressed in the Midlands under Steven Gerrard and his form has attracted interest.
With only a few days left of the window it is unlikely Villa will be willing to part ways with the Brazilian and have reportedly already rejected a £30 million bid for Luiz from another club.
Aston Villa - Luis Suarez
Luis Suarez has been linked with a move to Villa Park in recent weeks and is apparently keen on reuniting with his former Liverpool teammate, Steven Gerrard.
The move is yet to progress so may not happen, however Atletico Madrid have reportedly already identified Suarez’s replacement in Elche striker Lucas Boye - according to AS.
Brentford - Brennan Johnson
Brentford have had several bids rejected for Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson this month.
After most recently having a £18 million turned down, the Bees are now lining up a club-record bid for the 20-year-old.
Brighton & Hove Albion - Abel Ruiz
Brighton & Hove Albion have made an attempt to sign Braga’s Abel Ruiz this week, however their offer was immediately turned down - according to O Jogo.
It is unclear whether the Seagulls will make a second bid for the striker, but they are clearly eager to sign an attacker before the deadline.
The former Barcelona forward has two goals and one assist in the league so far this season.

Everton have already made three signings this month but could be set for a quiet few days as they are yet to appoint a new manager.
However, the Toffees have been linked with a move for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek today - though Thomas Tuchel is keen to keep him at Stamford Bridge.

One player they have been rumoured to be interested in is Portsmouth striker, Dan Gifford.
QPR and Middlesbrough are also monitoring the 17-year-old.
Southampton - Tino Anjorin
