We all knew that Newcastle United would be busy this transfer window and Tuesday's reports and rumors show that it was no joke.

How about taking away the only true target forward that your relegation rival had by triggering his release clause? That seems to be happening with Burnley forward Chris Wood having a medical before joining Newcastle. Then there's a report of a potential Premier League return for Marouane Fellaini. 

Among the other tidbits of the day, Barcelona is trying for a blast from the past and Jose Mourinho is making moves at AS Roma.

Benitez ready to spend big on Russian?

Everton is reportedly eyeing a move for AS Monaco’s Russian midfielder Aleksandr Golovin, but the Championat report picked up by the Liverpool Echo says that the French club wants $45-$55 million.

Do the Toffees have the appetite to throw around that kind of coin this January? Its 15th-place position in the Premier League standings could be bring about some risky decisions.


Latest Newcastle rumor ... Fellaini?

Perhaps the rumor mill around Newcastle may have finally jumped the shark with mention of a potential Mo Fellaini return. That's what La Derniere Heure in Belgium is reporting, also pointing to Galatasaray and Besiktas as potential suitors to lure the Belgian midfielder from China.

And the list of names is only continuing to grow:

Newcastle are keen on Benoît Badiashile after Botman deal collapsed. West Ham are also interested. Nothing agreed yet. 🇫🇷 #NUFC #WHUFC

From today’s medical tests, AS Monaco expect Badiashile to be back with the team in 2-3 weeks. Timing will be key to understand next steps.
