Rafael Benitez has expressed his desire to stay on at Chelsea. Recent news about Pep Guardiola's appointment at Bayern Munich, makes it difficult for Roman Abramovic to find a better candidate, and it could be that Benitez will be staying


Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas could be lucky twice in his attempts to bring in new players at White Hart Lane. Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby could be joining before the transfer window close, and latest are that Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke also are close to a deal.

Newcastle are eager to sign more players to their team, with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang a close target. The St. Etienne forward could be another new signing at the St James Park before the close, and a desperate move from Alan Pardew to secure the Premier League status.

Liverpool are still eager to sign Tom Ince, but will face competition from other clubs. The flank midfielder is one of few that has had a good season at Blackpool who are struggling at the moment. Reading are reported to be ready to give Ince a first team guarantee, which could be impossible at Anfield.

Aston Villa defender Stephen Warncok looks finished at Aston Villa. Leeds and West Ham are two clubs interested in signing the former England international, who has earlier this season spent time on loan at Bolton.

Liverpool looks close to finalise the move for Inter midfielder Philippe Coutinho. The player will move to Anfield for a fee of 7.5 million. Coutinho joined Inter from Vasco da Gama in 2010, and still only 20 years of age.

Harry Redknapp is not a satisfied man at the moment, as his QPR are struggling. The FA Cup defeat to MK Dons was another blow in the face and now more players could be on the way out of Loftus Road, in a desperate attempt to save the rest of the season.

Gremio could be next for Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates. The Uruguay international has not managed to convince either Kenny Dalglish or Brendan Rodgers that he is a certain first choice at Anfield, and now a move to Brazil looks likely.

Leeds manager Neil Warnock might have to surrender in his attempt to keep forward Luciano Becchio. Trabzonspor is close to finalise a 3 million move.

Jefferson Montero is the latest name to be reported as a Wigan target. The 23 year winger and Ecuadorian international could be finalising the deal just in time before the transfer window close.

Montpellier defender Henri Bedimo is a close target for West Ham. The 28 year old Cameroon international has played for a number of clubs before joining Montpellier in 2011. He has a past at Grenoble, Toulouse, Le Havre and Lens.

Middlesbrough could be next for the former England international Kieron Dyer. Dyer (34) is a free agent and looks likely to agree terms to join the promotion push at Riverside.

Blackburn are one of several Championship clubs chasing Blackpool defender Alex Baptiste. Reports suggests that it will take 1 million to win the race for the player. Leicester and Leeds are also clubs earlier linked with Baptiste.

Notts County are favourites to sign Jason Scotland. The former Swansea forward has left Ipswich after a contract settlement and are now free to join a new club. The 33 year old Trinidad and Tobago international is also a target for Barnsley as they try to climb out of their current relegation position.

Everton manager David Moyes could be lucky in his chase for Barnsley defender John Stones. The 18 year old England U.19 international is one of many young stars in the Championship that could become Premier League players very soon.

Jeffrey Sarpong is at the moment on a trial at Stoke City. The 24 year old former Ajax midfielder has left Real Sociedad and is now looking for a new chance and Tony Pulis will have a closer look to find out if the former Dutch U.21 international is a player to sign.

Derby winger Kieron Freeman is a target for Ipswich. Nigel Clough could be willing to let the highly rated midfielder leave, if the price is right.

Swindon winger Matt Ritchie is a target for a number of Championship clubs. The 23 year old former Portsmouth player might be difficult to keep at County Ground, with the financial problems currently present. Wolves, Crystal Palace and Burnley are clubs reported to be interested.

Norwich forward Simoen Jackson is close to a loan move to Derby. The 25 year old Canadian international is not certain of a first team place at Carrow Road and a loan move could be good for the former Gillingham player who has scored 17 goals in 71 league appearances for The Canaries.

Bastia midfielder Florian Thauvin is a target for Newcastle. The 20 year old midfielder is regarded as one of the best young talents in French football. If Thauvin moves to St James Park, he will feel at home with a huge colony of French players currently playing for Newcastle.

WBA forward Peter Odemwingie would consider an offer from QPR. The London club are by many players looked up on as a very interesting club to join. The fact that they managed to sign Loic Remy, could make it easier for Harry Redknapp to capture new potential targets.

Fulham are one of many clubs linked with Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland. Martin Jol is also at the moment competing with West Ham for the signature of 22 year old Troyes midfielder Fabrice N'Sakata.
