Here's today's football transfer roundup...
Chelsea are considering a £50 million (N24billion) bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, according to a report in the Daily Express. The 31-year-old Uruguay international would be the perfect fit for Maurizio Sarri's high-octane style, and is one of the best strikers in the world when it comes to work rate.

Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Dalian Yifang attacker Yannick Carrasco. The Belgium international, 12 months after quitting Atletico Madrid for the Chinese club, is eager to return to Europe this month. AC Milan are in contact, but Corriere dello Sport says their representatives have learned Arsenal are already well down the road in negotiations.

Man United are looking for a new defender. Things have improved under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but United are still keen to land a top defensive target in January and have reportedly set eyes on Roma's Kostas Manolas. The Greece international would cost €36 million (N15billion) due to a release clause in his contract, but there's a problem: it does not become active until after the January transfer window, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Inter are drafting another contract extension for star striker Mauro Icardi -- whose deal expires in 2021 -- worth €7m (N2.9bn) a year after their last offer of €6m (2.5bn) annually fell €2m (N835.5m) short of the Argentine's demands, amid interest from Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Celtic have confirmed the loan signing of Paris Saint-Germain attacker and U.S. international Timothy Weah, who will move to Parkhead through the end of the season.

With Cesc Fabregas on the verge of joining Monaco, Chelsea have identified 21-year-old Nicolo Barella of Cagliari and Zenit Saint Petersburg's 24-year-old Argentine Leandro Paredes as potential replacements, and the Mail cites Corriere dello Sport as reporting that Blues boss Maurizio Sarri wants a deal tied up for Fabregas' heir by the end of the week.
