Q&A (cont.)

Q:

A:

Liverpool are still interested in signing Lemar from AS Monaco, despite a bid being accepted from Arsenal. Arsenal did pull out of a deal claiming there is not enough time to finalise the deal, meaning Liverpool might do the same. But who knows at this stage. Should develop more. As in Manchester United, it seems there will be no signings made on deadline day as of so far. Things change quickly so stay tuned

Q&A TIME

I asked our followers on Twitter for any questions they’d like answered and here they are!

Q:

 

A:  So far there’s really no signings made as of now. The club denied that they want Riyad Mehrez despite links of him joining. Also, the La Liga side really wanted to bring in Coutinho but Liverpool are adamant that they will not even enter negotiations. But after all, it’s deadline day and La Liga clubs have an extra 24 hours so you never know what might happen.

BAGGIES NOT DONE YET

West Brom are not done with the transfer window, as they are set to sign their first (most likely last) signing of deadline day with promising Chelsea player Kyle Jameson. He would join the club’s development squad and is currently discussing a one-year contract.

BREAKING

Minutes after the report that a bid has been accepted, The Guardian are reporting that Arsenal have PULLED out from a deal for Thomas Lemar despite having a €100 million bid accepted. The club believes there is not sufficient time to sign Lemar who is in the France squad for this evening’s game against Holland – kicks off in a couple of hours. Insane turnaround! Does this mean Sanchez to Manchester City is off? Things can change very quickly

OFFER ACCEPTED

Good news Arsenal fans! It seems Lemar might join Arsenal after all with Alexis Sanchez leaving to Manchester City. Nothing is confirmed until it happens on deadline day! Stay tuned

CHELSEA OUTGOING

Unfortunately this isn’t an update on an incoming for Chelsea but there is news on the outgoing. Loic Remy is set to join Las Palmas on a permanent deal, and yes he was still a Chelsea player. Nathan on the other hand is close to joining  Ligue 1 side Amiens on a loan deal. All that, and it might not be the end of it with Diego Costa yet to be sold

MAHREZ IN LONDON?

Sky Sports have reported that there is an unconfirmed source claiming that Riyad Mehrez has checked into a London hotel last night. While there is another unconfirmed photo showing Mahrez in Paris airport. Where is he? Would him being in London mean Arsenal, Spurs, or Chelsea?

SAKHO IS ODEMWINGIE 2.0

West Ham’s Diafra Sakho did something worse than Odemwingie did on deadline day a couple of years ago. Sakho traveled to France and discussed personal terms with Ligue 1 side Rennes and underwent a medical without permission from West Ham. The Premier League side is currently negotiating a deal with Crystal Palace who offered a £10m fee for him. Looks complicated. Stay tuned!

REDKNAPP TO WORK

We all know Harry Redknapp loves his deadline day moves and car interviews! The coach is set to bring in Brentford striker Jota to Birmingham after an agreement of £6million plus add-ons. The player attracted interest from Hull, Fulham, West Ham, and Middlesbrough but is set to join Redknapp’s side.

SANCHO TO GERMANY

Daily Mirror are reporting that Manchester City starlet Jadon Sancho is set to join Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. The 17-year old rejected a £30,000-a-week new contract at City as he believes he’ll not get enough first-team football. A deal should be completed today for the talented player. Stay tuned for any developments.

WHERE’S NANI?

Good question people. Nani was spotted in Rome as he is set to complete a move to Serie A side Lazio from his current club Valencia. The reported fee is £13.8m. Here’s a video of him arriving to Italy!

 

OXLADE IN LIVERPOOL GEAR

It seems Liverpool are set to announce the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal with the player pictured in the club’s training gear. Stay tuned for the official announcement

 

COSTA SAGA

Diego Costa has had a rough summer with Antonio Conte and Chelsea, spewing everything out to the public. The Chelsea boss has made it clear since January that this would be the last season for the striker after the player expressed his interest in a return to Atletico Madrid several times.

Chelsea and Atletico are continuing negotiations as the Chelsea board refuse to let Costa’s antics drive down his price. A deal could be agreed for £39m with a further £10m based on add-ons.

The Spanish side are also trying to facilitate a loan move for Costa until he’d be able to join them in January after their transfer ban is uplifted. There’s interest from Everton, Las Palmas and Besiktas who all want the star striker to join them on a 6 month loan deal.

The La Liga extended their transfer deadline for another 24 hours so a deal is most likely to be finalised

DOUBLE SWOOP FOR BAGGIES

West Bromwich Albion announced double signings yesterday as they completed moves for Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs and Paris St-Germain midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak‏. Gibbs joined on a permanent deal for about £7m while Krychowiak joined on a season-long loan.

These two signings are the fifth and sixth signings made by Tony Pulis at West Brom. Good moves for the Baggies? Only time will tell

SWANSEA TO SIGN SANCHES

Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches has been linked to moves away from the Bundesliga side with constant links to AC Milan and Chelsea. Munich are willing to send him on loan with no option to sell as they believe he has potential at the club. Widespread reports from yesterday claim that Swansea City are set to be the winners and sign him on a season-long loan.

He only joined last summer, from his native country Portugal, from Benfica for a substantial fee of €35 million, at the age of only 18.

GOMES TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE

Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes who just joined the Blaugarna last summer is now available on a season-long loan alerting West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur. West Ham were set to sign William Carvalho but after failed negotiations, the club has now joined the race to sign Gomes.

Juventus are also interested. The only problem would be agreeing on a loan fee and accepting his hefty wage packet. Tottenham have also maintained interest in Ross Barkley but are hoping he’d reject Chelsea, stay for another year and join them on a free transfer next summer.

CHELSEA TO SIGN ANYONE?

If you’re lost on who Chelsea might sign then don’t worry, we got you! Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has continuously asked for more signings to give him some squad depth. The club could be completing three deals or more today, while finally sanctioning the sale of Diego Costa to Atletico Madrid.

To kick it off with bad news, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain refused to discuss contract details with Chelsea after deciding to pursue a move to his “boyhood” club Liverpool. Moving on to better news, the Champions are most likely to secure the £15m signing of Fernando Llorente from Swansea City. The club are also trying to finalise moves for Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater and Everton’s Ross Barkley.

Drinkwater handed in a transfer request on Monday in order to push a move to Chelsea, but Leicester are still demanding £35m – which is above what Chelsea wanted to offer. With Barkley, Everton rejected an offer of £25m from Chelsea with the London side set to come back with another offer.

Chelsea are known for their surprise deadline day signings, so we could be hearing of new targets emerging out of nowhere! Stay tuned for the latest on Chelsea.

WHERE IS AURIER?

Tottenham Hotspur fans can be relieved as PSG defender Serge Aurier has been granted a visa by the UK Home Office. The reason there was a delay with his move is because of Aurier’s suspended two-month jail sentence last year, where he assaulted a police officer. After multiple appeals, the jail sentence was reduced to a fine which allowed him to acquire a work visa from the UK. The player is set to be announced sometime today.

The London side announced the signing of  19-year-old Juan Foyth from Estudiantes yesterday, and it seems the club will not slow down on deadline day

SANCHEZ UPDATE

Alexis Sanchez is one of the top players that could be on the move on deadline day. Arsenal have already rejected an offer of £50m from Manchester City and have rejected the possibility of Raheem Sterling being involved in a cash+player deal. City are expected to make another bid of £70m and could even go higher in order to reunite Sanchez with boss Pep Guardiola.

Sanchez is currently in Chile training with the international team, with coach Juan Antonio Pizzi denying reports that the FA have let him leave camp. Will he end up leaving Arsenal?

WHO IS MAHREZ JOINING?

The Algerian FA have announced that Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City has been given permission to leave international duty in order to formalise a deal with his new club. It seems at the moment, he is set to join Barcelona according to widespread reports. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have maintained interest in the player. More on Mahrez as we have it.

THE OX ON THE MOVE

The story breaking last night is that Liverpool have agreed an offer of £40m for Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The player rejected a move to Chelsea as he refused to be a right-wing back option, preferring to be a midfielder and joining his “boyhood” club Liverpool.

Could this mean AS Monaco’s Thomas Lemar moving elsewhere? Stay tuned for more developments.
