Alberto Moreno to Sevilla
Sevilla are monitoring the Liverpool defender and could make an attempt to re-sign him in the summer when his contract expires. Sources have told ESPN FC that the 26-year-old is open to a return to Spain and Sevilla, who Moreno left in 2014 to join the Reds, are one of the clubs interested in his signature.
Fernando Llorente to Athletic Bilbao
Another Spaniard who could be returning to his former club is the Tottenham Hotspur striker. Llorente's Spurs contract expires in the summer and, The Independent reports, Athletic Bilbao are weighing up a move to bring him back to the club on a cut-price deal in January. The 33-year-old began his career with the Basque club, playing 327 games and scoring 111 goals.
Samir Nasri to West Ham
The two-time Premier League winner is without a club and, after his 18-month drugs ban ended last week, is available for clubs to sign on a free transfer. Still only 31 years old, Nasri could make a return to the Premier League with West Ham United interested, according to the Daily Mirror. The Hammers would face competition from Everton but Manuel Pellegrini, who worked with the Frenchman at Manchester City, could be an important factor.
Nabil Fekir to Chelsea
L'Equipe has reported the Lyon star will not sign a new contract with the club and that has alerted Chelsea, according to The Sun, who are ready to launch a move at the end of the season. The France international's deal expires in 2020 and if Lyon want to recoup a big fee, they may have to cash in next summer. Liverpool and Bayern Munich also are interested in the 25-year-old.
Xherdan Shaqiri to Galatasaray
The Switzerland star only arrived at Liverpool in the summer but he could make a quick exit with Galatasaray interested in taking the Swiss star on loan in January, according to Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb. Shaqiri has started just four matches for Jurgen Klopp's side this season after joining the club from Stoke City.
