With little more than a month until the transfer window reopens, there's plenty of gossip flying around all over the world.

Spanish publication El Confidencial say Chelsea have made Robert Lewankdowski's representatives an irresistible offer, with Jose Mourinho attempting to persuade the Polish international to join the Blues instead of Bayern Munich. The news only came to light when Real Madrid enquired about his services and were informed about advanced negotiations with Chelsea (El Confidential)

Diego Forlan may finally get the opportunity of proving his worth in England with West Ham. Sam Allardyce is reportedly keen on signing the veteran Uruguay international, who failed to cement a starting role during his spell at Man United (Mirror)

Man United are planning an audacious bid to bring Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford. The French international joined Juve from United's youth academy after growing frustrated with his lack of first team opportunities and failing to agree a contract (Forza Italian Football)

And finally, Spurs have slapped a £6.5m price tag of 31 year-old striker Jermain Defoe which they hope will deter bids from the likes of West Ham and QPR (Times)
