Fernando Llorente to Chelsea may be one of the most unexpected deals of the January window, but it’s up at 4.6 on our index.
Antonio Conte is looking for a back-up to Diego Costa and it looks certain that Michy Batshuayi is not seen in that role.
As discussed on Football Whispers TV, the Belgian forward could be used as bait, if the Italian boss wants to create a reunion with Llorente at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans may be unconvinced with the potential arrival of the 31-year-old, but our in-depth scouting report may convince you otherwise.
Is Andrea Belotti Arsenal Bound?
While everyone had one eye on the FA Cup action this weekend, Serie A club Torino sparked a transfer rumour spark when their Sporting Director announced that Arsenal had made a £55m bid for Italian forward Andrea Belotti.
That gave him an instant spot on our index and it has seen it shoot from 1.7 on the 6th of January, to 4.1 as shown on Tuesday’s episode of Football Whispers TV.
“Yes, we received the offer, but it does not reflect the value of the player,” Gianluca Petrachi said to Sky Italia when asked about the Gunners' interest.
According to the Press Association, the North London club denied making any such move for the 23-year-old who has 13 goals in 16 league games this season.
Belotti signed a new deal before Christmas and that includes a €100million release clause. However, this all seems a little too convenient, and there’s a sense that the Italian club are pushing their own agenda here.
Earlier in the week, Football Whispers looked at whether or not the Italian would be an upgrade on Olivier Giroud.
Also, riding high on our index is the exclusive we brought to you last week, with Montpellier’s Jerome Roussillon joining up with Sam Allardyce at Crystal Palace.
The left-back would give the Eagles an attacking threat from deep and fans can read more about him in our scouting report.
Schalke left-back, Sead Kolasinac, is reportedly on the verge of a move to Juventus this window. A deal that could spell the end of Patrice Evra’s time at the club.
The Frenchman was left out of the Old Lady’s squad last weekend to have a think about his future. Out of the contract in the summer, the 35-year-old has been linked with a return to Manchester United.
West Ham Moving For Scott Hogan
Deal of the day in this week’s episode is Brentford’s Scott Hogan ending West Ham United’s search for a striker.

After missing out on Jermain Defoe, the Hammers look set to finalise a deal for the 24-year-old.
Football Whispers started charting this move on the 5th of January, going from 1.4 up to 3.4 in a matter of days.
Averaging 2.62 shots from inside the area per 90 minutes, that’s more than anyone in the current West Ham attack, making this the ideal transfer target for Slaven Bilic.
