Five transfers that could happen on Deadline Day

Transfer Deadline Day is here, with teams across the country all set to frantically search for deals to help strengthen their side before the end of the season.

Despite having the whole month to sort transfers, there will be plenty leaving it to the last minute in an attempt to get the best deal possible for themselves, whilst scampering to get it across the line.

With the window closing at 11pm tonight, there is still plenty of time for clubs to get deals across the line today. Take a look at five transfers which could happen before the clock strikes 11 tonight.

Idrissa Gueye to PSG

Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye is pushing to seal a move to Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain following a £21m bid.

The Senegalese international is desperate to push a deal across the line, reportedly handing in a transfer request at Goodison Park to ensure the club accept the offer and allow him to return to France.

Gueye started his professional career with Lille in 2010, spending five years in the first team before moving to Aston Villa, where he spent just one season being relegated and then got his move to Everton for just £7m.

Everton stand to treble their initial investment on the player if they accept PSG’s offer, although Marco Silva is keen to keep hold of the midfielder unless they are able to bring in a replacement.

PSG had previously shown interest in Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure but have now turned their attentions to Gueye, having also brought in another midfield player this month in Leandro Paredes.

Willian to PSG

Another Premier League player that could be on his way to Paris today is Chelsea winger Willian, who PSG reportedly want to sign on loan until the end of the season.

With Neymar set to miss up to three months with a metatarsal injury, Thomas Tuchel is keen for the club to bring in a replacement late in the window and have identified his Brazil teammate as their top target.

Willian has been a wanted man across January, with Barcelona also said to be interested in signing him from Stamford Bridge over the month, though Chelsea have so far resisted the temptation to sell.

He has started 20 games in the Premier League for Chelsea this season, but has scored just once in the league since the end of October.

The Blues lost 4-0 to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Wednesday night and have also had to shun interest in another winger, Callum Hudson-Odoi, throughout the month of January so far.

Yannick Carrasco to Arsenal

Arsenal’s search for a winger has been well documented throughout this month, leading them to look at a number of targets.

At the beginning of this week it seemed as if Ivan Perisic would be the man to provide another option in wide areas, with the Croatian even handing in a transfer request at Inter Milan.

However, Yannick Carrasco now seems the far more likely option for the Gunners after Inter refused to part ways with Perisic, despite his transfer request, after wanting to sell the player on a permanent deal.

Arsenal’s unwillingness to spend any money this month means they are ultimately restricted to loan deals with a view to making it permanent at the end of the season. Carrasco is keen to move back to Europe just a year after moving to China and sees Arsenal as his preferred destination.

The Gunners are keen to get a deal done today to get him in until the end of the season, with the club also expected to finally complete the signing of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez today, also.

Che Adams to Southampton

Birmingham City striker Che Adams is a man in demand this month, having had plenty of interest from Premier League sides throughout January.

The 22-year-old striker has enjoyed an excellent season in the Championship so far, scoring 15 league goals for the club this term but they appear unlikely to be in the promotion picture come the end of the campaign.

Adams’ form has seen him attract interest from the likes of Fulham and Burnley, although it seems Southampton have shown the strongest interest in taking him away from St. Andrew’s this month.

The Saints have already lodged an £8m offer for Adams that has thus far seen the Blues unmoved, although they could well return today with more offers in order to get their man.

Ralph Hasenhuttl is keen to have a front line with pace and energy, attributes that Adams offers and the club have previously been linked with the likes of Jean-Kevin Augustin and Ollie Watkins. Charlie Austin is also believed to be a player that could be on the move to make funds for another striker.

Peter Crouch to Burnley

Former England international Peter Crouch is set for a return to the Premier League with Burnley.

Crouch turned 38 yesterday and is part of a deal which will also see striker Sam Vokes join Stoke this month for £10m, as the Potters look to add firepower to their squad and build around new manager Nathan Jones.

As for Burnley, they are keen to add a new face to their front line having scored just 25 goals in 24 games as a collective so far, although they were able to net twice at Old Trafford on Tuesday night in their 2-2 draw.

Crouch brings a wealth of experience to Turf Moor, having played for the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton, Portsmouth and Aston Villa in his top flight career, scoring 108 Premier League goals for those clubs.

If he signs, it will surely be the last move of his career before retiring from the professional game.
