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.

Reports making the round claims Juventus are keen a tab with Arsenal summer target Virgil van Dijk as a possible replacement for Bonucci.

Juventus were shocked this summer when defensive linchpin Leonardo Bonucci walked out, with the club left with no choice but to sell him to rivals AC Milan.

While the Old Lady have strength in depth in that position, veteran defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli are approaching the end and younger blood will be required in the next year.

The Mirror reports that a move for Virgil van Dijk could be on the cards for January, with Southampton resisting any temptation to sell the Dutch star this summer.

Arsenal are still keen despite their public spat with Saints, as are Chelsea, but Southampton would much prefer to sell abroad if the 26-year-old can be persuaded to choose the Bianconeri.
