Transfer Deadline Day: The Big Moves That Could Still Happen

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.

Arsenal have several players to sell and need a new right-back

Arsenal sit rock bottom of the Premier League, despite spending a staggering £140m on reinforcements that include the £50m spent on defender Ben White from Brighton & Hove Albion.

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.

Spurs also want a right back

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. 

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.

Chelsea target Kounde, Hudson-Odoi on the way out?

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.

No moves at Man City

Meanwhile, reigning Premier League champions Manchester City now appear unlikely to bolster their attack after they failed in their approach to sign Spurs' Harry Kane

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. 

City look set to be in for another quiet day, though, with their pursuit of a Sergio Aguero replacement expected to end in failure, but could Pep Guardiola have a trick up his sleeve?

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.
