Wilfried Zaha is desperate to leave Crystal Palace this summer

Today, we’ve seen last-ditch bids, transfer requests, and fall-outs, all setting the scene for some huge late deals.

So, here are the transfers that could still happen….



David Luiz to Arsenal

According to various outlets, the Chelsea defender wants to make the switch across London.

Luiz reportedly refused to train with the Blues today in order to force a move to the Gunners before tomorrow’s transfer deadline.

There have reportedly been a ‘series of fall-outs over the past week’ with Frank Lampard ‘unlikely to consider the Brazilian for selection’.

This would certainly be one of the biggest shocks of the window if it goes through.

Wilfried Zaha to Everton

The Ivorian has reportedly handed in a transfer request at Crystal Palace in a bid to force a move away from the club before tomorrow’s deadline.

Zaha has been the subject of much speculation this summer with Arsenal very keen on him earlier in the transfer window.

Everton have also tried to sign the 26-year-old but Palace have rejected all offers for the Ivorian winger so far.

Sky Sports now claim Zaha has made it clear he wants to leave.

Philippe Coutinho to Manchester United

Barca are willing to let the 27-year-old leave on loan and could even be open to selling him for the right price, to help their pursuit of Neymar.

Unsurprisingly, this has led to a number of rumours linking him with a move to some of the Premier League’s top clubs including Man United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp stated earlier this summer the Reds will not be re-signing Coutinho, whilst Arsenal’s limited transfer budget and the signing of Nicolas Pepe will always make it a struggle for them.

Spurs were very interested, but Coutinho has rejected the chance to join them on loan, opting to fight for his place at Barca.

However, Man United have not yet been ruled out from signing the Brazilian.

Paulo Dybala to Tottenham

Reports in Italy claim Tottenham and Juventus have agreed a fee, believed to be around £65million, for Paulo Dybala.

The forward was rumoured to be close to joining Man United last week, but his wage demands and complications around his image rights hindered the move.

The Mail reported the club were not willing to pay the £15m his agent, Jorge Antun, wanted as a commission to negotiate the purchase of his image rights.

Spurs are able to offer Champions League football, unlike United, but it is thought the 25-year-old wants as much as £350,000-a-week to move to England.

Giovani Lo Celso to Tottenham

Tottenham have reportedly made a new offer for the Real Betis midfielder.

Spurs have wanted him all summer and Sky Sports claim an offer worth £55m has been tabled, but Betis value their player at £70m.

Lo Celso wants the move and Tottenham are expected to step up their pursuit following their failure to land Coutinho.

Danny Drinkwater to Burnley

The Chelsea outcast has reportedly failed to impress Frank Lampard during pre-season.

According to Sky Sports News, Burnley have entered talks with the Blues over a potential transfer.

Drinkwater, who played a starring role in Leicester’s shock Premier League title success of 2016, has not played a competitive match for Chelsea in more than a year.
