Chelsea to buy Alex Sandro, Alexis Sanchez to appease Antonio Conte

Deadline day has come and gone, and all the latest deals and potential deals can be found here, but there's plenty brewing in the market as clubs begin to look toward January. Chelsea plot Sandro, Sanchez double move Antonio Conte was evidently not content with Chelsea's strategy to help him retain the title and challenge in the Champions League, though a late flurry of signings right before the window close certainly helped. But the Mirror believes the Italian will be handed additional mid-season reinforcements, including long-term targets Alex Sandro and Alexis Sanchez. Juventus make Milinkovic-Savic top midfield target It's good news for Liverpool as Juventus have made Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic their top priority to strengthen their midfield over Emre Can, reports Tuttosport. The Biancocelesti will not sell for less than €80m though, so there is a list of alternatives, including Can, who could be free in 2018 if he fails to agree a new deal. Other targets appear to be Leon Goretzka at Schalke, in addition to Napoli's Faouzi Ghoulam, presumably as a replacement in the event that Chelsea sign Sandro. Lastly, and rather incredibly, Juve want to bring Marcus Thuram, the son of their former defensive stalwart Lilian who was born in Italy during his father's illustrious playing career and is on the books of Monaco. Inter eye Ozil raid
Arsenal look set to push ahead with a January sale to avoid losing Mesut Ozil for nothing next year, reports the Mirror. The German playmaker has been linked with Manchester United on a free transfer but the Gunners will likely not wait that long. The former Real Madrid star wants £350,000-per-week to extend his stay at the Emirates, but negotiations have so far not gone anywhere. Inter Milan could also emerge as a possible destination with their newfound wealth and need for a classic No.10 to operate in behind Mauro Icardi. Vidal set for Serie A return with Inter It looks like more frantic buying from Serie A's biggest clubs in the new year with the Nerazzurri eyeing Bayern Munich star Arturo Vidal, reports Corriere dello Sport. Vidal thrived for Juventus, at times at the expense of Inter, but could now be a high-profile casualty as the Bundesliga giants prepare for a new era after Carlo Ancelotti's sacking. With Inter's owners also owning Chinese club Jiangsu Suning, Luciano Spalletti may also see Ramires or Alex Teixeira moving back to European football. Tap-ins - Tottenham are looking to reignite their interest in Barcelona's Andre Gomes, reports Transfer Market Web. The Portugal international has struggled since his big-money move from Valencia and now Spurs will battle it out with Juventus, Manchester United and AS Monaco to offer him an exit route
