Here are those rumours in full:
Ian Harte (Leeds Utd) £2.5million
Terry Venables is believed not to rate the Irish international left-back and will off load him in January. A fine dead-ball specialist, but also the slowest player in the Premiership.
John Terry (Chelsea) £6million
Chelsea are set to sell the England Under-21 defender after he failed to agree a new contract.
Ariel Ortega (Fenerbahce) £20million
The Argentinian playmaker has failed to settle in Turkey since his pre-season move. Unlikely to provide good value at £20million.
Javier de Pedro (Real Sociedad) £5million
Sir Bobby has apparently had the Spanish World Cup star watched and will make the left winger his top target in January.
Edgar Davids (Juventus) Part-exchange for Hugo Viana
Viana is unhappy after failing to become a first team regular and will leave for Juventus in a £10million deal including Davids.
Brett Emerton (Feyenoord) £8million
The arrogant Aussie will move to St James’ Park in order to fill the right-back slot and provide cover for Nobby.
Kiki Musampa (Malaga) £11.5million
Cash strapped Malaga will cash-in on their greatest asset in January.
Luis Figo (Real Madrid) Free
The Portuguese midfielder is keen to come to England and work with Sir Bobby again.
Michael Bridges (Leeds) £4million
Fit again Geordie is keen to leave Elland Road to join his boyhood heroes.
Massimo Ambrosini (AC Milan) £4million
The midfielder is keen to leave the San Siro to find first team football, but his club will not sell to a Serie A rival.
Jaap Stam (Lazio) £8million
Lazio can no longer afford his wages and are looking to sell asap.
Rob Hulse (Crewe) £3million
17 goals already this season and Sir Bobby is looking for a goalscorer to provide cover for Alan Shearer.
Josep Guardiola (Roma) £4million
Veteran Spanish playmaker doesn’t like the defensive style of football in Italy and is keen to work with Sir Bobby again.
Fabio Macellari (Ex-Bologna) Free
Out of contract Italian defender will sign immediately to help bolster the defence.
Philippe Christanval (Barcelona) £4million
The French international defender is unwanted at the Nou Camp and is keen to play in the Premiership.
Javier Portillo (Real Madrid) £5million
The Spanish striker is unable to get into the Madrid team since the arrival of Ronaldo and fancies swapping La Liga for the Premiership.
Darren Ambrose (Ipswich) £4million
The teenage winger will arrive as cover for Nobby. The story is still around despite both clubs denying it.
David Batty (Leeds) Free
Out of favour at Elland Road, Batty will return to provide cover in midfield.
Carlos Sandro (Malaga) £4million
The midfielder has impressed scouts watching Kiki Masampa and may arrive in the summer.
Please note that no more than one of these rumours is actually likely to become fact.
