EPL:Top 5 high profile transfer rumours
London, Jan 15: The January transfer season is half way through but Premier League giants are yet to splash the cash on some high-profile signings. After a busy summer transfer season, clubs are willing to cut-short their expenditure and maintain financial regularities. But there is no transfer window without a big money move. Here is a look at some of the high profile transfer rumours in the January transfer market.

Gareth Bale - Real Madrid - £55 million

Tottenham are ready to part ways with Welsh wizard Gareth Bale as Real Madrid are keen to sign him during the summer. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is ready to listen to offers for around £55 million while Real could offer Bale a whopping £150,000-a-week in wages to avoid any competition. The 23-year-old has been urged to join Madrid by former team-mate Luka Modric. The Welshman recently signed a £75k-a-week for four years.

Radamel Falcao - Chelsea - £48 million

Chelsea have been tracking Radamel Falcao throughout the season and are set to make a move during the end of the season. Falcao, 26, is a possible replacement for £50m flop striker Fernando Torres. The Columbian has a £48 million buy-out clause in his contract which Chelsea are ready to activate and make him one of the highest paid players by offering £10m-a-year in wages. Cash-rich Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in Falcao.

Edinson Cavani - Manchester City - £45 million

Napoli have already rejected a £45 million bid reportedly from Manchester City. Cavani, 25, has scored 16 goals in 16 games for Napoli and Roberto Mancini is keen to sign the Uruguayan. However, City face competition from Real Madrid who are also interested in Radamel Falcao. Angelo Gregucci, one of City's coaches, confirmed that City are interested in Cavani who has a £50 million buy-out clause in his contract.

Joao Moutinho - Tottenham Hotspur - £25 million

Spurs boss Andres Villas-Boas missed out on signing Joao Moutinho on the last day of the summer transfer window. The deal failed to take place as Moutinho did not agree to personal terms. Moutinho, 26, impressed during the EURO 2012 competition with Portugal and caught the eye of former Porto boss Villas-Boas. The 25m-rated playmaker could move to White Hart Lane as Gareth Bale is linked with Real Madrid. Spurs need a replacement for Luka Modric and are also making way for Moutinho by offloading Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore.

Marouane Fellaini - Manchester United and Chelsea - £22 million

Manchester United and Chelsea could go into a bidding war to sign Marouane Fellaini from Everton. In case United or Chelsea trigger his £22 million buy-out clause, the Belgian could leave Goodison Park. Fellaini has a contract until 2016 and has expressed his desire to play in the Champions League.
