Every Premier League club’s plans on Transfer Deadline Day

Transfer Deadline Day isn't quite the same spectacle that it was a decade ago – but perhaps this one could be different.

There are still a host of Premier League teams who can legitimately say that they are in need of reinforcements on the final day of the window.

Whether it is a saga of our prolonged summer finally coming to a conclusion, or a last-minute panic buy (yes, we're looking at you, Manchester United), there is bound to be drama throughout the day.

So with plenty of potential business taking place, we have taken a look at what we can expect from every Premier League team today.

Without further ado…

Arsenal

Everything on Deadline Day is about the Arsenal midfield. A deal for Houssem Aouar is now looking off the table, but Thomas Partey talks are accelerating.

Amadou Diawara at Roma is an alternative option, but the Gunners are expected to be putting all of their eggs in the Partey basket.

There are likely to be outgoings, too. Lucas Torreira's exit is set to be confirmed, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles' time at the club could well come to an end. Reiss Nelson is also being considered as a loan option by Crystal Palace.

Aston Villa

Don't be expecting too much business if you're an Aston Villa fan. The arrival of Ross Barkley appears to have been the last of the major deals by Dean Smith.

Fans are clearly keen on Said Benrahma of Brentford, and while there is a bit of interest from Villa, a Deadline Day deal is thought to be unlikely.

Espanyol's midfielder Marc Roca has been touted as an arrival but the signing of Barkley has probably ruled that one out.

Brighton

There are two priorities for Graham Potter in the transfer market. He wants an experienced striker to replace Glen Murray, while there is also belief that a winger is needed at the Amex.

Ryan Sessegnon was a consideration but he has instead headed to Germany on loan.

But perhaps the biggest concern for Brighton is that there doesn't appear to be anything close, which means Deadline Day could become something of a game of roulette for the Seagulls.

Burnley

Sean Dyche appears pretty happy with his squad so it's outgoings that the attention will be on.

James Tarkowski remains a Burnley player heading into Deadline Day and it is thought nobody will stump up the asking price for him. West Ham still need a centre-back but are unlikely to get close to a deal. Leicester signed an alternative option during last week.

The expected deal for Liverpool's Harry Wilson appears dead in the water.

Chelsea

Frank Lampard is all done for incomings after the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz joined the club this summer alongside other illustrious names.

Now, it's focus on the outgoings. Marcos Alonso appears to have kicked his last ball for the club after a row with his manager, while Chelsea will entertain offers for Antonio Rudiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is still wanted by Bayern Munich but Chelsea are not wanting to sell. Money does talk, though.

Crystal Palace

There will be more attention on a potential outgoing, as Palace look to fend off interest in Wilfried Zaha, who is keen on a move away from the club.

However, the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday further reinforces the club's need for a centre forward, which Roy Hodgson is keen to bring to the club.

If a striker can't be found, then an attacking midfielder might be the compromise, with Reiss Nelson an option on loan from Arsenal.

Everton

There is not much on the table for Everton today, but Carlo Ancelotti will be delighted with his side's window.

Ben Godfrey's arrival looks likely to be the final piece of the jigsaw for the Blues.

Outgoings are expected to be the order of the day, with Yannick Bolasie and Theo Walcott among those linked with exits, but Ancelotti is happy with his squad and is not thought to be forcing the issue.

Fulham

The return to the Premier League hasn't been kind to Fulham and their need for a centre-back couldn't be clearer.

They were trying to take advantage of the fact Arsenal have eight central defenders by signing Sokratis, but that one is looking unlikely heading into the final day of the window.

Timo Baumgratl from PSV Eindhoven and Gleison Bremer are being considered on a reasonably lengthy list of potential arrivals. There could even be room for both to join.

Leeds

A left-back is now the priority for Leeds, but it could be a lively day all round, with a midfielder also being considered.

Ryan Sessegnon was considered as a left-sided option for Marcelo Bielsa but he is now heading to Germany, while Yasser Larouci of Liverpool has been considered.

There remains an interest in Norwich's Todd Cantwell, but the Canaries are unlikely to sell on the final day of the window.

Leicester

The hunt for a centre-back ended when Wesley Fofana joined from Saint Etienne last week, but that might not be the end of the business for Leicester.

An attacking midfielder is on the wish list but with few names linked, it could well be a late decision on whether they believe they are doing good business or not.

Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani are free to leave the club if the right offers come in.

Liverpool

It is a testament to Liverpool's transfer business that there is very little that is going to happen on Deadline Day – even after their 7-2 defeat to Villa.

An incoming is pretty much never going to happen, with Jurgen Klopp happy with his squad.

But outgoings could be on the cards, with Yaser Larouci catching Leeds' eye and other youth players looking to gain experience with a loan.

Man City

A left-back is a must for Pep Guardiola and City, who don't normally like deals on the final day of the window.

But Benjamin Mendy's struggles in the game against Leeds at the weekend is likely to force Guardiola's hand as he looks to find a better option in that position.

No outgoings are planned, with Oleksandr Zinchenko now set to stay despite interest and offers from abroad in recent days.

Man Utd

United will continue to ask Dortmund questions about Jadon Sancho, even with the arrival of Edinson Cavani to add further strength in depth in the front line.

A left-back is on the agenda and United will continue to get a deal for Alex Telles over the line, with the Porto defender willing to join and finances appearing to now be in place between the clubs.

Outgoings will be on the agenda too.

Newcastle

One more attacker would be ideal for Steve Bruce, but he is in the main believed to be happy with the business that Newcastle have done and content with how his squad looks.

A box-to-box midfielder is also a consideration and long-term target Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be the subject of a loan offer.

Newcastle have been offered centre-backs by agents abroad, but it remains to be seen if they take the bait.

Sheffield United

The only incoming that Chris Wilder is likely to make is going to be in defence, with a host of shrewd moves made earlier in the transfer window.

Rhian Brewster's arrival should solve the goalscoring problem that the Blades had, as they look to avoid the dreaded second season syndrome in the Premier League.

But with Jack O'Connell likely to miss a bulk of the season, cover at centre-back is likely to be the order of the day, with Ethan Pinnock and Terence Kongolo among the potential options. There could also be a late move for a left-back.

Southampton

Arrivals have been few and far between this summer at Southampton and there is unlikely to be a huge spate of signings in the coming hours.

A midfielder was craved and Brest star Ibrahima Diallo's move was completed late on Sunday.

Saints have missed out on Ibrahim Sangare from Toulouse due to work permit issues, and that now looks like their business is done, unless a late loan move can be found.

Tottenham

There was one point earlier in the summer when it looks like Tottenham were going to have a quiet time of it. How wrong we would be!

Following the arrival of Carlos Vinicius to Spurs, a centre-back is the last bit of business that Jose Mourinho wants to complete.

Antonio Rudiger looks to be the most likely solution to that problem, while Milan Skriniar has been linked too.

Don't rule out some outgoings, with Dele Alli's future the highest-profile question being asked. PSG's interest is genuine and likely the only suitors with just hours of the window remaining.

West Brom

Securing the services of Callum Robinson is not enough for Slaven Bilic, who will be actively looking throughout the day for more strikers to supplement his squad.

Troy Deeney's name is continually linked and is probably the most likely arrival into the West Brom ranks, while there is interest in Leicester's Islam Slimani which could accelerate as the day continues.

Outgoings are likely, with Charlie Austin talking to Derby Counter and Kenneth Zohore in negotiations with Sheffield Wednesday.

West Ham

Even now, James Tarkowski remains the top target for David Moyes, but it is incredibly unlikely that the board will stump up the money for that deal.

So, a centre-back remains top of the priority list and it looks like Duje Caleta-Car of Marseille is the most likely man to fill that gap.

There are also links to a loan move for Liverpool's Marko Grujic, while Diego Costa's name has been banded around – though that one is in the unlikely column.

Wolves

There is a sense of unpredictability about Wolves this Deadline Day, as there has been throughout their impressive summer of transfers.

Rayan Ait-Nouri is expected to join the club from French side Angers, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles is still talked about, as is Jesus Corona of Porto.

The good news for Wolves fans is that striker Raul Jimenez has signed a new contract to ensure he goes nowhere.
