Here we go. Transfer deadline day is here and it looks set to be a frantic day of activity as clubs across Europe scramble to get deals over the line before the window slams shut this evening.
Incredibly, Premier League clubs have already spent close to £1bn in a sensational transfer window.
If we were picking winners so far, Man Utd landing Sancho, Varane and Ronaldo are the standout leaders, though huge moves for Grealish to City and Lukaku to Chelsea provide some competition.
Ahead of the window slamming shut this evening, here's a quick look at the business that could yet happen.
Mikel Arteta will now seemingly be focused on outgoings with the likes of Willian, Hector Bellerin, Eddie Nketiah, Sead Kolasinac, Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles all available to leave the club.
The north London outfit are also said to be looking to strengthen their right-back position, with Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier a target, however, their business will depend on outgoings before the clock strikes 11pm.
Fellow north Londoners Tottenham Hotspur are also trying to get a deal over the line for a La Liga right-back after Barcelona's Emerson Royal successfully completed a medical this morning, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
Medical successfully completed for Emerson Royal as new Tottenham player. Paperworks to be signed in the next minutes, final details & announcement pending. €30m add ons included to Barcelona. ⚪️🤝 #THFC #DeadlineDay— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 31, 2021
The 22-year-old will join the current Premier League leaders in a deal worth £26m including add-ons and will be officially announced shortly. His move will pave the way for outcasts Matt Doherty and Serge Aurier to leave the club, with the latter in talks over a move to Real Betis.
On the face of it, Chelsea may be the busiest top-flight club on Tuesday with possible incomings and outgoings.
The champions of Europe look like they will need to pay the £68m release clause in order to sign French defensive stalwart Jules Kounde from Sevilla, with Borussia Dortmund interested in a deal for winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
City spent the majority of the summer trying to sign the England captain and had multiple bids rejected for the forward, before briefly considering a shock swoop for Ronaldo.
There were just 12 Premier League deadline-day signings last year - the lowest in recent years - so will we see more deals completed this time? Only time will tell.
