The transfer window may not open again until January 1 2018 but that hasn’t put an end to plenty of speculation throughout Europe.
Here, we take a look at three big stories dominating the headlines on Sunday.
Will any of the following deals happen?

Milan will launch an €85 million bid for Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez in January, according to the Daily Star.
Arsene Wenger has previously said that he expects the Chilean international to see out the final year of his contract and will not be sold prior to this.
But Milan will seek to offer Wenger a way to avoid losing the 29-year-old on a free transfer next summer.
Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Manchester City and Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain are among the other clubs interested in securing his services.
An approach from the Italian side would certainly interest the Chilean, and with a salary of around €332,000 per week and the lure of the Milan lifestyle, it’s a move not to rule out just yet.
Although Sanchez would prefer to stay in England – with Chelsea and Manchester City interested – it is expected that he will remain at the Emirates Stadium this season before departing North London for another club.
Paco Alcacer wants to leave Barcelona after being marganlised by Ernesto Valverde, according to the Sun.
The 24-year-old has found game time limited this season and is set to depart in January if he is not in the manager’s plans.
His last appearance came on August 26 against Alaves and it appears Valverde has no time for his services.
With Alcacer keeping one eye on next summer’s World Cup, perhaps it is the right time for the Spaniard to leave Barcelona.
Chelsea are monitoring Steaua Bucharest wonderkid Florinel Coman, according to the Mail on Sunday.
The Blues technical director flew to Romania last week to watch the 19-year-old.
The versatile teenager has been capped five times by Romania’s U-21 side and can play anywhere across the front line.
He is regarded so highly that Steau’s owner Gigi Becali has an £88 million release clause.
Coman is clearly one of the most talented youngsters in Romania.
Although a move to the Premier League may happen at some point in the future should he continue to improve, it would suit the 19-year-old better to stay at Steaua Bucharest for another season to further his development – especially with first team action guaranteed.
