The 2022 January transfer window is closed, but there's still plenty of gossip swirling about who's moving where. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings and goings and, of course, done deals!

TOP STORY: Juve ready to give up on Dybala as Barca, Atleti, Inter circle

Juventus could give up trying to persuade Paulo Dybala to sign a new contract if an agreement can't be reached once his representatives arrive in Turin on Thursday, reports Calciomercato.

Dybala's future has been up in the air throughout this season, as his deal expires in summer 2022, but the Allianz Stadium hierarchy are beginning to lose patience with the Argentina international.

It was recently reported that the Bianconeri were planning to offer Dybala a lower salary than initially proposed in November. To make things worse for the Serie A side, there is now interest from Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan, with all three clubs keen to land the 28-year-old on a free transfer this summer. Inter are reported to be at the head of the queue and prepared to offer him a higher salary than is on the table from Juve.

While he has contributed to 18 goals in 27 appearances this season, it appears as though Dybala's time in Turin is coming to an end.

21.57 GMT: Borussia Dortmund have agreed personal terms with FC Salzburg forward Karim Adeyemi, according to Fabrizio Romano. The Bundesliga club will still need to agree a transfer fee with the Austrian outfit, but the 20-year-old Germany international seemingly has his sights set on a move to the Westfalenstadion, despite interest from fellow Red Bull-backed club RB Leipzig.

21.24 GMT: West Ham United will return to the negotiating table this summer as they look to land Benfica forward Darwin Nunez, according to Fabrizio Romano's Here We Go Podcast. David Moyes' side had a £50m offer rejected in January, with the Lisbon club unable to find a replacement before the window shut, and now the Hammers will look to get a deal done for the 22-year-old Uruguay international whose rising profile has attracted the attention of Manchester United.

20.51 GMT: Atalanta and AS Roma are keeping tabs on Shakhtar Donetsk winger David Neres, reports Calciomercato. After FIFA announced on Monday that foreign players would be free to leave their clubs in Russia and Ukraine, amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the 25-year-old Brazil international could prove a bargain addition in Serie A.

20.18 GMT: RB Leipzig are looking to tempt Real Madrid academy starlet Rafa Marin to the Red Bull Arena, reports Marca. The 19-year-old centre-back is contracted at the Bernabeu until 2024, but the Red Bull-backed club are hopeful of persuading the Spain youth international to move to the Bundesliga for more first-team opportunities.

19.45 GMT: Newcastle United are set to enter the race to sign Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger, reports the Telegraph. Having missed out on Sven Botman and Diego Carlos in January, the Magpies are prepared to make a lucrative offer to the 29-year-old Germany that could tempt him to St. James' Park, although they'll have to fit off competition from the Blues, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

19.12 GMT: Juventus are interested in midfielders Renato Sanches of Lille and Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, writes Tuttosport. AC Milan have been linked with a move for 24-year-old Sanches, while MIlinkovic-Savic, 27, has attracted interest from some of Europe's biggest clubs each summer for the past number of years.

18.39 GMT: Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has a number of offers to return to his home country of Brazil, according to Ekrem Konur. The 33-year-old has just three months left on his deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, and it looks as though he is set to leave after 15 years there, with Fluminense, Botafogo and Palmeiras all said to be keen on signing him.

18.06 GMT: Torino striker Andrea Belotti has received a €6m-a-year offer from Toronto FC, reports Rudy Galetti. The 28-year-old was recently linked with a switch to AC Milan, but the latest suggests that he is yet to decide his next destination, and with mega money on offer in MLS he may find the offer to join Italy teammate Lorenzo Insigne in Canada too tempting to turn down.

17.33 GMT: Barcelona are edging closer to completing the signing of Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui, reports Foot Mercato. The Blaugrana have made the 24-year-old Morocco international a priority signing, considering he could arrive on a free transfer after his contract in Amsterdam expires this summer, and positive talks with agent Mino Raiola this week have eased the LaLiga club into pole position for his signature ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

17.00 GMT: Tottenham Hotspur are considering offers for right-back Emerson Royal, according to the Sun. Despite moving to north London from Barcelona just last summer, signing a five-year contract after Spurs paid a reported £26m transfer fee, the 23-year-old Brazil international doesn't appear to be part of manager Antonio Conte's plans, eyeing Middlesbrough's Djed Spence -- on loan at Nottingham Forest -- as a potential replacement.

16.27 GMT: Barcelona hope that manager Xavi isn't going anywhere.

15.36 GMT: Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi was on the radar of Chelsea 12 months ago and Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the club could return.

Berardi, 27, helped Italy win Euro 2020 last summer and caught the eye of Borussia Dortmund as well, so the Blues may have some competition.

15.00 GMT: Barcelona president Joan Laporta has insisted he has no regrets over Lionel Messi's departure last summer as he reflected on his first year back in charge at Camp Nou.

Laporta returned for a second spell as president last March and in August told Messi the club could not afford to renew his contract, prompting the Argentine forward to sign for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.

"It's the saddest decision I have had to make," Laporta told Barca TV. "I never wanted to have to make it, but at the same time I don't regret it because the club always comes first.

"We had to put the institution above everything else -- even the best player in the world. The situation was what it was; that's the reality. It seemed like there would be a void after [Messi left] but Barca goes on and, with hard work and well thought out decisions, we can bring success back to the club."

14.22 GMT: Footmercato claims that Chelsea and PSG are interested in signing Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

Mahrez, 31, has 21 goals and seven assists in 33 games in all competitions this season but his contract expires in 2023 and he has yet to start talks over an extension.

As a result, City may look to move the Algeria international on in the summer if they get a bid of around €30m.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly a big fan, while PSG view Mahrez as a replacement for Angel Di Maria.

13.33 GMT: Marcus Rashford is set to miss out on the England squad for the Wembley friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast later this month, as sources have told ESPN that the Manchester United forward is facing a battle to earn a place in Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad.

Rashford, 24, has been absent from the England set-up since Euro 2022 due to shoulder surgery, which forced him out of action at United until October.

But since scoring on his return to the team in a 4-2 defeat at Leicester on Oct. 16, Rashford has scored just five goals in 24 appearances for United and his loss of form has led to him starting just two of the club's past 11 games in all competitions.

Rashford has now failed to score in his past seven games for United, and sources have told ESPN that England manager Southgate is unlikely to alter his stance of only selecting players who are performing regularly for their clubs when he names his squad for the Switzerland-Ivory Coast doubleheader next week.

13.06 GMT: Cesar Azpilicueta's move from Chelsea to Barcelona is not as proving as straightforward as the Catalan club had hoped, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Chelsea are reportedly annoyed at the way Barca have opened negotiations with two of their players, Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen, and could yet take up their option to unilaterally extend the former's contract.

Both Azpilicueta and Christensen are out of contract in the summer and have held talks with Barca over a free transfer. Christensen is expected to finalise an agreement with the LaLiga side soon, but a move for Azpilicueta has run into trouble.

Chelsea have an option that allows them to extend the Spain defender's terms if he plays a certain number of games this season, per the report. Therefore, they could demand Barca pay a small fee to get the deal over the line.

Mundo Deportivo claims Azpilicueta is keen on a move to Camp Nou but has not wanted to put too much pressure on Chelsea out of respect for the 10 years he has spent at the club since joining from Marseille for €8.8m.

12.44 GMT: Arsenal will be looking to sign a midfielder or two in the summer, with Lyon's Lucas Paqueta on their shortlist, according to Calciomercato.

Paqueta, 24, has seven goals and four assists in 25 Ligue 1 games this season and is under contract at Lyon until 2025.

The Brazil international has previously been linked with Newcastle, while Lyon reportedly value his services at around €50m.

12.00 GMT: Everton are on a big slide under new manager Frank Lampard.

11.23 GMT: Bayern Munich are planning to open talks over signing highly rated Middlesbrough right-back Djed Spence this month, according to Sky Germany.

Spence, 21, has done well on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, with Arsenal and Tottenham also having watched him.

Middlesbrough are reportedly looking to get around €15m for the defender, who came through Fulham's academy before leaving in 2018.

10.50 GMT: Barcelona and Real Madrid could re-enter the race for FC Salzburg forward Karim Adeyemi, according to a report in Ruhr Nachrichten.

Adeyemi, 20, was expected to join Borussia Dortmund this summer, following the same path as former Salzburg striker Erling Haaland, but talks have reportedly hit a stumbling block.

Barca's first-choice attacking signing this summer is Haaland, when his release clause of €75m becomes active, while Madrid are also keen on the Norwegian as well as Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe, whose contract expires at the end of the season. But both Spanish clubs view Adeyemi as a credible alternative.

The Germany international has scored 19 goals in 33 appearances for Salzburg this season and is expected to move on in the summer for around €40m.

10.17 GMT: Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig is drawing interest from Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to Diario Sport.

Puig, 22, has hardly featured this season under either Ronald Koeman or Xavi Hernandez, playing just 363 minutes across 13 appearances in all competitions.

Koeman previously told Puig his best chance of regular football was going out on loan, but the Spain U21 international opted to stay and fight for his place at Camp Nou. However, given that he now finds himself in the same position under Xavi, with younger midfielders Gavi and Nico Gonzalez moving past him in the pecking order, he could now be forced to reconsider his future at the club.

Sport reports that Wolves represent an interesting option for Barca as any deal could be linked to Adama Traore, who joined the Catalan club on loan from the English side in January.

Barca have an option to sign the winger for €30m in the summer but would prefer to negotiate the price down. Puig -- or Francisco Trincao, who is currently on loan at Molineux -- could help in that regard.

09.36 GMT: Sevilla sporting director Monchi has revealed that Brazilian defender Diego Carlos and Argentine winger Lucas Ocampos have both signed new deals.

While Monchi did not reveal the duration of the new contracts, the two players, whose previous contracts expired in June 2024, will remain in Seville for the foreseeable future.

Diego Carlos was a target of Newcastle United in recent transfer windows, while Ocampos was linked with Liverpool last year.

"We've renewed [the contracts of] Diego Carlos and Ocampos 14 months ago," Monchi said. "We didn't announce it for strategic reasons."

A key player for coach Julen Lopetegui, Diego Carlos, joined Sevilla from Nantes in the summer of 2019 and has made 36 appearances in all competitions this season.

Argentina international Ocampos has scored eight goals and set up four more in 31 appearances this season.

Monchi, meanwhile, has denied reports that his club are closing in on the signing of Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco. The 29-year-old, who was a key player for Lopetegui in Spain's squad, becomes a free agent this summer and has featured 14 times this season for Madrid.

"I haven't heard Julen [Lopetegui] say that he wants Isco," Monchi said. "He's said that Isco is a good player. If you ask me, he is a good player... Lopetegui likes Isco and so do I but there's nothing."

09.02 GMT: Lautaro Martinez is fully committed to Inter Milan, his agent has declared.

Martinez, 24, joined Inter in 2018 and has scored 64 goals and set up 22 more in 168 appearances for the Nerazzurri. The Argentina international forward has scored 15 goals this season and, while he had not scored for three weeks, he found the back of the net three times in Friday's 5-0 league win over Salernitana.

"He will remain at Inter," Lautaro's agent Alejandro Camano told Sky Italy. "He signed [last year] a five-year contract [until June 2026] and he feels an Interista.

"Inter is the team of his heart. He is very happy in Milan. I can say it with certainty, there's no possibility that Lautaro will leave Inter. He is very keen to win with these colours."

08.30 GMT: Atletico Madrid midfielder Yannick Carrasco has revealed he turned down transfer options in January to stay in LaLiga.

Carrasco, 28, was linked with both Tottenham and Newcastle due to a £50m clause in his contract.

"These days, I feel very, very good. I'm at home. I'm well integrated. I'm an important player whether it be on the pitch or in the dressing room," the winger told RBTF. "I'm already at a certain age too, but football, as they say, you never know how to plan or predict the future.

"A few clubs knocked on my door this winter, but I'm good at Atlético, so I wanted to continue my adventure here."

Laporta 'convinced' Xavi will remain at Barcelona for 'many years'

Barcelona president Joan Laporta speaks about Xavi's future as manager of Barcelona.

PAPER GOSSIP

- Paris Saint-Germain will target Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford if Kylian Mbappe leaves the French capital in the summer, reports the Daily Mail. The 24-year-old England international is said to be growing frustrated at Old Trafford, and would be willing to leave for the right opportunity, although the suggestion that Mauricio Pochettino -- long linked with a move to the United dugout this summer -- would like to keep Rashford could change his mind.

- Barcelona are targeting a quadruple swoop of free transfers, with Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen the first likely to commit to a move, according to Fabrizio Romano. Xavi wants to get AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta and Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui to also sign pre-contract agreements to move to the Catalan side this summer when their contracts end.

- Bayern Munich are convinced that Serge Gnabry will renew terms at the Allianz Arena before the end of the season, despite no progress being made over the 26-year-old's wages, according to Sky Sport Germany. Gnabry will soon enter the final year of his deal in Bavaria, and a number of clubs from the Premier League are keeping a close eye on the situation.

- A number of teams across Europe are monitoring Ajax winger Antony, reports Nicolo Schira. Bayern Munich are one of the teams, though he is also generating plenty of interest from the Premier League, with Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle United all monitoring the situation of the 22-year-old Brazil international.

- Newcastle United will have competition from Juventus if they are to return to the negotiation table for Sassuolo forward Giacomo Raspadori, reports Nicolo Schira. The Magpies are said to have made an offer of €25m in January for the 22-year-old Italy international, though the Bianconeri have identified him as a potential reinforcement in the summer.

- Besiktas are keen on a move for Al-Nassr attacker Anderson Talisca but are concerned over his salary, according to Rudy Galetti. The former Brazil youth international is reported to earn around €5m a year in the Saudi Professional League, and the Turkish Super Lig club would want him to take a pay cut if they are to make a formal approach.
