EPL: Top transfer news and rumours on December 19

  • Liverpool have secured young winger Raheem Sterling's signature for a new five-year contract but a possible transfer of Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge could be blown away due to the agents fee.
  • Andy Carroll has expressed his desire to return back to Newcastle United. The Liverpool striker, on loan to West Ham United, could be involved in a cash plus player swap deal with Demba Ba heading to Anfield. Carroll, who joined Liverpool for £35 million in Jan 2011, failed to make any impact for the Reds and manager Brendan Rodgers has not included him in his future plans.
  • Meanwhile, the Hammers, Queens Park Rangers and Wigan Athletic will compete to sign £3.3m forward Salomon Kalou from Lille. The former Chelsea star joined the French side this season.
  • Liverpool and Arsenal have been alerted after Belgian side Anderlecth are ready to offload midfielder Lucas Biglia next month. The highly-rated Argentinean has been a long-term target for the Premier League rivals.
  • Newcastle will face competition from West Ham United for the signature Marseille striker Loic Remy.
  • Liverpool and Everton are frontrunners to sign Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland in January. Southampton and West Ham are also interested in the £6m-rated England stopper.
  • Arsenal could miss long-term target Klaas-Jan Huntelaar after reports from Germany hint that the Dutch striker could sign a new deal with Schalke.
  • Wigan are eyeing an emergency loan move for Manchester United's Chilean striker Angelo Hernandez.
  • Despite interests from Barcelona and cash-rich Anzhi Makhachkala, QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt has pledged his future with the London club. The Morocco international has attracted teams like Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.
  • Liverpool and Arsenal will have to pay £5 million for Derby County midfielder Will Hughes.
  • Chelsea are planning to spend nearly £100 million in January with potential targets Radamel Falcao, Marouane Fellaini and Joao Moutinho.
  • Mario Balotelli has dropped his appeal against Manchester City in order to save his career at the club. The Italian had taken City to a tribunal in a bid to overturn a fine of £340,000 imposed on him for inappropriate behaviour.
