Newcastle United have reportedly agreed a £30m fee for the Brazilian midfielder who is due to undergo a medical in Brazil ahead of a proposed move to Tyneside. With Arsenal and Juventus heavily-linked, this could be seen as a massive coup for the club. (Photo by MICHAL CIZEK/AFP via Getty Images)
Despite being a regular and visible member of first-team training, Anderson has not travelled with the squad to Saudi Arabia. Luton Town have shown the most interest in the midfielder and a loan move in order to secure him regular first-team football could be in Anderson’s best interests.
Newcastle have reportedly offered to take Zapata on loan for the remainder of the season with an obligation to buy the Colombian should they beat the drop this season. He’s been in tremendous form in Serie A this campaign meaning Atalanta will likely be very reluctant to see him depart, however.
Middlesbrough have reportedly shown interest in bringing the Republic of Ireland international to the Riverside this month. His move from Burnley has not panned out as hoped and Hendrick has struggled for game time this season.
