The 20-year-old has impressed Jose Mourinho, according to the Daily Record, with his performances in the Champions League and for Scotland.

Jamie Murphy is expected to seal his move from Brighton to Ibrox today, with Graeme Murty and Mark Allen also eyeing bids for Hamilton’s Greg Docherty and Kilmarnock’s Jordan Jones.

The current Premier League champions attempted to sign the Everton attacking midfielder in the summer and are willing to spend to prevent the 24-year-old signing for rivals Tottenham.
Ryan Sessegnon is a man in demand, according to the Mirror. The 17-year-old has a host of top clubs all eager to sign him up, with Paris St Germain joining the chase for the Fulham man. The paper said Tottenham could bid again for the left back, while Manchester United and Manchester City are keeping tabs on the teenager.
The Philippe Coutinho saga continues to rumble on – with the Mirror reporting that Barcelona will offer £140million for the Liverpool man. The paper said Anfield want most of the money up front and are keen to avoid a repeat of the summer where the base figure was low and had “unrealistic add-ons”.
Watford are looking to dispose of Troy Deeney and want to bring in Bournemouth’s Benik Afobe, the Daily Mail reports. Deeney is the captain at Vicarage Road, but has only found the net twice this season and the paper says they will be looking to receive offers north of £20million.
