A deal for Inter Milan striker Andrea Pinamonti has potentially moved a step closer with Wolves reported to have made a formal offer for the youngster.
There is no indication if it would be a loan or permanent arrangement at this stage.
The 18-year-old has made one senior start this season in the 0-0 Coppa Italia draw with Pordenone.
Wolves and Cardiff City are thought to be leading the race to sign AFC Bournemouth forward Lewis Grabban.
The 29-year-old has been recalled from his loan at Sunderland after scoring 12 goals in 20 matches.
And the Cherries are set to allow him to leave on a permanent basis with Wolves reportedly one of the sides keeping tabs.
Burnley have dropped their interest in James McClean following the signing of Georges-Kevin N'Koudou from Spurs.
A move would now seem highly unlikely with Sean Dyche happy with the balance of his overachieving squad.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has asked to be updated on Jonny Evans’ situation with the West Brom defender wanted by Manchester City and Arsenal.
United sold Evans to West Brom in the summer of 2015 with former boss Louis van Gaal happy to let the Northern Ireland defender go.
Arsenal and Manchester City are still favourites for the 30-year-old, but the Red Devils are not out of the running.
Daniel Amartey is the latest player to be linked with a move to Villa Park.
The Ghana international has been nothing but a bit-part player at King Power Stadium this season, having made only four top-flight appearances to date.
West Brom are odds-on favourites to land Watford striker Troy Deeney in a £20m deal.
Walsall, who signed Deeney in 2006, have an active sell-on clause of 20%, which could see the club collect in the region of £4m should a deal be struck this month.
