Celtic face decisions on several players ahead of tonight’s transfer deadline.
The Scottish champions have already rebuffed attempts by Chelsea to sign goalkeeper Craig Gordon.
And the Premier League leaders are considering testing Celtic’s resolve over top goalscorer Moussa Dembele with a possible bid of more than £30m.
Danish defender Erik Sviatchenko’s agent appears to have flown to Scotland for talks with Celtic following interest in his player from England.
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers declared categorically yesterday that Gordon would be staying at Parkhead and has consistently stated that 20-year-old Dembele, who joined from Fulham for a £500,000 compensation fee six months ago, will not be available in this transfer window.
Reports in Africa have also claimed Celtic bid around £1m for KAS Eupen’s Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru.
But Rodgers is not expecting any incoming transfers to add to his early January capture of Eboue Kouassi.
Striker Nadir Ciftci could head out on loan after failing to make the squad on Sunday despite injuries to Dembele and Leigh Griffiths.
And out-of-favour defender Efe Ambrose has hinted he might be on the move.
He told www.owngoalnigeria.com: “I’m not joining Hibernian but I know where I am going soon. You guys should be patient. Very soon it will be public knowledge.”
Rangers could have finished their business after completing the signing of Port Vale goalkeeper Jak Alnwick in a £250,000 deal.
The departure of Matt Gilks is expected to be confirmed but Reece Oxford now looks set for a loan move to Reading.
Aberdeen are looking to sign another player and have rejected a third bid from Cardiff for Jonny Hayes.
The £600,000 offer falls well below their valuation. Norwich midfielder James Maddison confirmed yesterday he would not be returning for another loan spell.
Inverness are still looking for two new players and are reported to have targeted former Caley Thistle striker Billy McKay.
The Northern Ireland international is on a season-long loan from Wigan to Oldham but the League One club have recently appointed a new manager, John Sheridan, who took over from former Motherwell assistant boss Stephen Robinson.
McKay has netted four goals this season, all of them in cup competitions.
Hearts took their January signings to nine with a hat-trick of deals yesterday, adding former St Mirren forward Esmael Goncalves to the Greek pair of Tasos Avlonitis and Alexandros Tziolis.
Hamilton also signed a Greek player, former PAOK Salonika right-back Giannis Skondras, who joins left-back Blair Adams in arriving at the SuperSeal Stadium in recent days.
Manager Martin Canning is still looking for a forward before tonight’s deadline.
Partick Thistle, Motherwell and Dundee are all in the hunt for more additions with the Lanarkshire club’s pursuit of Stephen Pearson possibly going beyond the deadline.
Kilmarnock could spend some of their £750,000 Souleymane Coulibaly windfall on bringing in attacking reinforcements.
Ross County appear to have done all of their business while St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright confirmed there would be no transfer-deadline action in Perth.
Ladbrokes Championship leaders Hibernian are also looking for reinforcements but look to have failed in their attempts to re-sign Kris Commons from Celtic after Rodgers said he had a back problem.
Hibs have reportedly made a bid to re-sign Anthony Stokes on loan from Blackburn. The Irishman has not started a first-team game since August.
