The summer transfer window was unlike any other; see all the major deals and check out how we graded the biggest signings. And just because the window is shut until January, that doesn't mean the rumours won't keep coming. Here is the latest gossip and speculation.

TOP STORY: Roma eyes Madrid's Ceballos

AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho is interested in a move for Real Madrid midfielder

Dani Ceballos, according to El Nacional.

Los Blancos reportedly value the midfielder at €20 million and whilst his former club Real Betis are also said to be interested, they would be unwilling to match that pricetag.

Meanwhile, Mourinho is said to be keen on adding the Spain international to his squad as a "key" to his plans in the January transfer market.

Ceballos, 25, spent the past two seasons on-loan at Arsenal before returning to the Bernabeu this season. He joined up with Spain for the Olympics in the summer and suffered an ankle injury as his side went home with a silver medal.

He is yet to return to action following his injury and is expected to be back in mid-November.

Roma have put in a huge investment with the aim of a return to Champions League football, already signing Tammy Abraham, Rui Patricio, Matias Vina, Eldor Shomurodov, Roger Ibanez and Bryan Reynolds.

However, losses to Lazio and Juventus in the league have shown more reinforcements could be necessary whilst a 6-1 defeat to Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League has also brought criticism onto Mourinho.
