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.

TOP STORY: Barcelona wo not return for Coutinho

After a very public spat with Liverpool this summer concerning Philippe Coutinho, Barcelona are moving on and want to reignite talks over Ivory Coast and Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri, according to the Mirror.

The outlet details how the Blaugrana are ready to drop their interest in the Reds star and pursue Seri instead. The Brazilian was ready to leave the Reds this summer, but owners FSG refused to budge on their stance that the player would not be sold.

After publicly pursuing the former Inter starlet, Barca now want to add strength in depth ahead of a La Liga title chase and an attempt at reclaiming the Champions League crown and see Seri as a perfect -- and less expensive -- alternative to Coutinho.

Everton after Celtic starlet

Ronald Koeman is still looking forward to adding quality in the January window, with the Sun reporting that Everton want Anthony Ralston from Celtic.

The Hoops starlet caught the headlines after starting Tuesday's Champions League match against PSG, with the French side winning 5-0.

The 18-year-old was involved in a spat with Neymar after the Brazilian suffered some rough treatment and words were exchanged at full time.

Now the Toffees look set to push for a deal to acquire the talented defender from Glasgow in January.

Hodgson ready for January spree

Roy Hodgson will have up to 40 million to spend on transfers to boost Crystal Palace's survival bid in January, according to the Star.

The Eagles sacked Frank De Boer four games into the season after going without a point to start the Premier League season and are now preparing for a relegation scrap.
