Bale key to Spurs signing Rodon?
Gareth Bale hasn’t even set foot on the pitch yet, but could already be about to make a key assist for Tottenham in helping them acquire his Wales teammate Joe Rodon.
The winger, who is on loan from Real Madrid, apparently influenced Rodon into favoring a move to Spurs. The 22-year-old defender could complete an £18m transfer from Swansea soon. [Daily Star]
Butland in line for shock Liverpool move
Jack Butland could be in line for a shock return to the Premier League with Liverpool this month. The reigning champions would like a new goalkeeper, with Alisson Becker injured and Adrian conceding seven goals against Aston Villa recently.

Dembele out? Barca begin plans for the next transfer window
Barcelona are already planning for January as they step up their pursuit of Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay. Ousmane Dembele will likely be offloaded in a cut-price deal should a suitable offer arrive. The Frenchman’s sale would go a long way into helping the side acquire their top two targets. [Diario Sport]
