Here are the latest transfer updates and done deals in the ongoing January transfer window for various clubs across Europe.
Done Deal: Ireland U21s’ Zack Elbouzedi makes Bolton move
The 21-year-old joined the Reds in October and has impressed for them.
He was their top scorer this season with 16 goals in all competitions.
Watters won the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month award for December.
According to The Daily Mail, Celtic’s transfer failings could be compounded as Toney is linked with a big money move to Mikel Arteta’s side. Despite signing for a fee that could go up to £10m in the summer, Toney is already being linked with a move away.
The striker netted 26 times last season for Peterborough but since a move to Brentford, he has scored 24 goals for the Championship side in all competitions already. Celtic missed out on a move for the striker and now the striker is being linked with West Ham and Arsenal.

Barcelona and Napoli are negotiating a loan deal for Firpo
Napoli are also trying to secure a transfer for Kevin Malcuit. Parma are reportedly still keen on signing the French fullback. This would make the Firpo operation immediately possible.
Junior Firpo has made 33 appearances for Barcelona since arriving in August 2019. Since his move from Real Betis, he has served as a deputy to Jordi Alba at left-back. However, he hasn’t quite imposed himself to be in contention for a starting spot. While he would benefit from more game time and a move away, Barcelona’s depth at the left-back position is already scarce. Firpo’s departure, if not for a decent transfer fee, could pose problems for Barça.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher backs Real Madrid and Barcelona to sign Mane over Salah
The ex-Chelsea attacker has fired Liverpool to great heights, winning the Premier League and Champions League titles.
His time on Merseyside could be coming to an end as Real and Barcelona are apparently interested in the Egyptian’s services.
However, Carragher feels the 28-year-old may not get his dream move to La Liga because of his age.
He feels Mane, who is also 28, would be more suitable to joining the Spanish European heavyweights.
