With 24 goals in 23 games this season, the Gabon international is the leading scorer in the Bundesliga at the winter break. Former coach Jurgen Klopp would like him at Liverpool, but it is worth noting that Aubameyang is under contract until 2020 and the player has recently stated how happy he is at Dortmund.

With 24 goals in 23 games this season, the Gabon international is the leading scorer in the Bundesliga at the winter break. Former coach Jurgen Klopp would like him at Liverpool, but it is worth noting that Aubameyang is under contract until 2020 and the player has recently stated how happy he is at Dortmund. 

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG (26, striker) Borussia Dortmund

Linked with: Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United

 

MICHY BATSHUAYI (22, striker) Marseille

 

Linked with: Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Tottenham

 

The Belgian has graduated from super sub last season to focal point this time around after the departure of Andre-Pierre Gignac. At the age of only 22, he is likely to make the Belgium Euro 2016 squad and has scored in both of his appearances for his country so far. Only PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has netted more goals than Batshuayi in Ligue 1 this season.

 

LARS BENDER (26, midfielder) Bayer Leverkusen

 

Linked with: Arsenal

 

Manager Arsene Wenger has a holding midfielder on his radar following the injury to Francis Coquelin. The German international - the twin of Borussia Dortmund player Sven - has played in the Champions League this season and is solid and dependable.

 

ASHLEY COLE (35, defender) Roma

 

Linked with: Aston Villa, Crystal Palace

 

Ashley Cole

 

Since joining Roma in 2014, left-back Ashley Cole has been on the fringes of the squad - literally

 

Cole has had such a bad time in Italy that his club could agree to cancel his two-year contract a season ahead of schedule. The former England left-back made just 11 appearances for the Serie A side last season and hasn't played a single game this term. He could surely do a decent job for someone in the Premier League, if they can get him fit. A short-term signing worth considering.

 

ANWAR EL GHAZI (20, winger) Ajax

 

Linked with: Liverpool, Manchester United, Southampton, Stoke

 

Dutch football is down in the dumps but El Ghazi is the kind of player who can cheer the fans up again. He made his senior Netherlands debut late in 2015 and many more caps are expected. Only a matter of time before he moves to a bigger club, possibly in the Premier League.

 

GONZALO HIGUAIN (28, striker) Napoli

 

Linked with: Arsenal, Chelsea

 

Gonzalo Higuain in action for Napoli

 

"HI-GUA-IN! HI-GUA-IN!" The in-form Argentine striker is enjoying a very successful season with Napoli

 

One of the world's top forwards at the moment, Higuain would give Chelsea the cutting edge they have lacked because of Diego Costa's loss of form. Higuain has two-and-a-half years left on his contract and a bid of £50-60m could perhaps tempt Napoli to sell.

 

TERENCE KONGOLO (21, defender) Feyenoord

 

Linked with: Manchester United, Southampton

 

After progressing from the well-regarded Feyenoord academy, Kongolo was given his debut in April 2012 by Ronald Koeman - who has been linked with a move to take him to Southampton. The defender is part of the Netherlands' rebuilding plans for the coming years and has also been scouted by Manchester United.

 

DIRK KUYT (35, striker) Feyenoord

 

Linked with: Barcelona

 

Yes, it might be surprising, but stranger things have happened. The Dutchman has had a new lease of life after returning to his homeland. Second highest scorer in the Eredivisie this season with 13 goals, Kuyt could head to the Nou Camp with Barcelona looking for an experienced forward to act as back-up to Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.

 

GRZEGORZ KRYCHOWIAK (25, midfielder) Sevilla

 

Linked with: Arsenal

 

The Pole has been watched regularly by the Gunners, whose need for a defensive midfielder has increased since Coquelin damaged knee ligaments in November. Krychowiak has been a key man for the back-to-back Europa League winners.

 

RAVEL MORRISON (22, winger) Lazio

 

Linked with: QPR

 

Will anyone take him now? Morrison ran out of chances at Manchester United,  blew it at West Ham and has not settled at Lazio, either. He is desperate to return to England in January although his baggage - fined for criminal damage, a caution for common assault and admitting two counts of witness intimidation - might dissuade most clubs.

 

RUBEN NEVES (18, midfielder) Porto

 

Linked with: Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool

 

A regular in the Porto side as well as taking the captain's armband at his tender age, Neves is already a Portugal international and looks destined for the top. Suitors have been attracted from the Premier League but will have to shell out big money to sign him up.

 

NOLITO (29, winger/striker) Celta Vigo

 

Linked with: Arsenal, Barcelona

 

The Barcelona youth product is having the season of his life and playing so well that his old club have apparently thought about taking him back. Arsenal have been linked, too, but they're not exactly short of wide attackers, and Nolito will be 30 in October.

 

MARTIN ODEGAARD (17, midfielder) Real Madrid

 

Linked with: Celtic, Getafe, Rayo Vallecano

 

Martin Odegaard

 

Everyone wanted to sign Martin Odegaard but he has so far been out in the cold at Real Madrid

 

Norwegian starlet Odegaard has failed to make an appearance under Rafael Benitez this season and the teenager needs minutes to continue his development. A loan move is more likely than a permanent one.

 

ADRIEN RABIOT (20, midfielder) Paris St-Germain

 

Linked with: Arsenal, Juventus

 

The young Frenchman has said he wants to leave the club on loan  in January, despite featuring quite often for the Ligue 1 leaders this season. Is a place in the squad for Euro 2016 playing on the mind of the France Under-21 international?

 

SANDRO RAMIREZ (20, forward) Barcelona

 

Linked with: Tottenham

 

A supremely talented young player, but unlikely to have regular football at Barcelona any time soon. Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino reportedly admires Sandro and the north Londoners are following him closely. Leaving Barca might mean never returning - would Sandro take that risk?

 

ARJEN ROBBEN (31, winger) Bayern Munich

 

Linked with: Manchester United

 

The Dutchman's season has been disrupted by injury, but he has still managed five goals in 12 games for the Bundesliga leaders. With Manchester United's need for pace in the wide areas, he could well be the marquee signing Louis van Gaal needs for his side.

 

LEROY SANE (19, midfielder) Schalke

 

Linked with: Liverpool

 

Few countries are better than Germany at producing high-class midfielders - and Sane is the latest. Even though he has made only a handful of appearances for Schalke, Sane has already earned a full cap for the national side and Jurgen Klopp is a firm admirer.

 

ISLAM SLIMANI (27, striker) Sporting Lisbon

 

Linked with: Crystal Palace

 

Sporting are trying to win the Portuguese title and it is thought they would demand at least £14m to sell the Algerian in January. The price is likely to drop in the summer, but Palace boss Alan Pardew might decide to take a gamble in order to strengthen the club's chase for a European spot.

 

GOKHAN TORE (23, winger) Besiktas

 

Linked with: West Ham

 

Slaven Bilic worked with the Turkey international at Besiktas and it is believed he would like to bring him to Upton Park. Tore is quick, direct and aggressive and should do well in England - but top clubs in Turkey are cash-rich and Besiktas could tempt Tore to stay.

 

SIMONE ZAZA (24, striker) Juventus

 

Linked with: Crystal Palace, Watford, West Ham

 

After two excellent seasons at Sassuolo, Zaza has struggled to cement his place in the Juve first team and could leave Turin, initially on loan. He has won seven caps for Italy but there are doubts about whether his style of play is suited to the English game.
