Premier League transfer deadline day guide as clubs look to beat the clock

Premier League clubs are working round the clock to bring in players ahead of transfer deadline day.

The transfer window shuts at 11pm on Monday, and the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are still trying to add to theirs squads.

The Gunners are still trying to land Houssem Aouar from Lyon, while Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey has been on the radar all summer.

United are set to sign Edinson Cavani but are still chasing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, with Chelsea having been linked with West Ham midfield Declan Rice.

Liverpool look to have completed their transfer business after signing Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas – but as always there could be a few surprises on deadline day.

Premier League teams will still be able to trade with EFL clubs until October 16 – but all other business has to be done by the close of play on Monday.

Here's your essential guide to what all 20 top-flight clubs are still trying to wrap up before the deadline.

ARSENAL

The Gunners are still trying to bring in Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar, while Lucas Torreira and Ainsley Maitland-Niles may be going and Reiss Nelson loaned out. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s new deal has been the best bit of business.

ASTON VILLA

Dean Smith has added significantly with midfielder Ross Barkley, following keeper Emi Martinez, striker Ollie Watkins, defender Matty Cash and forward Bertrand Traore through the door. So it’s expected to be a fairly quiet day at Villa Park tomorrow.

BRIGHTON

Adam Lallana and Joel Veltman are settling in nicely and young striker Andi Zeqiri is also through the door, but the Seagulls still haven’t added the experienced central striker Graham Potter wants to bring in. That will be the priority for Brighton.

BURNLEY

Boss Sean Dyche has signed Dale Stephens to replace Jeff Hendrick who, like Joe Hart and Aaron Lennon, left on a free. The question now is whether or not the Clarets can hang on to defender James Tarkowski, with West Ham and Leicester keen on him.

CHELSEA

Frank Lampard has strengthened his squad well, with Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva. But he must now sell Marcos Alonso, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho to rebalance his playing pool.

CRYSTAL PALACE

The best business Palace can hope to do today and tomorrow will be keeping hold of want-away Wilfried Zaha. Roy Hodgson has also been looking to bring in a centre-forward, plus another attacking midfielder after landing promising Eberechi Eze, 22, from QPR.

EVERTON

The supporters are already rightly excited by the signings of James Rodriguez, in particular, and Allan. Ben Godfrey is a late arrival, thanks to his £25million move from Norwich, making it a very satisfying window for Carlo Ancelotti.

FULHAM

Scott Parker is still hopeful of landing a new central defender, but convincing Sokratis to make the move from Arsenal looks destined to fail. Parker’s great difficulty will be in convincing signings to clamber aboard what already looks like a sinking ship.

LEEDS UNITED

Leeds broke their transfer record by signing striker Rodrigo from Valencia and have also brought in centre-back Diego Llorente from Real Sociedad. Marcelo Bielsa is still hoping to bring in Spurs’ Ryan Sessegnon or Liverpool’s Yasser Larouci at left-back.

LEICESTER

Brendan Rodgers is close to signing Wesley Fofana from St-Etienne after bringing in Timothy Castagne and Cengiz Under. An attacking midfielder is still being sought, but Rodgers looks like he’ll have to settle for just three or four signings. Ben Chilwell’s exit is a blow.

LIVERPOOL

The champions have added Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas, but are unlikely to bring in anyone else. Yasser Larouci is poised to move, with interest from Leeds while Rhian Brewster has gone to Sheffield United for around £23m.

MANCHESTER CITY

Pep Guardiola got the signings of winger Feran Torres and centre-back Nathan Ake done early and they were joined last week by Ruben Dias as the City boss looks to shore up his defence. David Silva’s departure leaves a void that won’t be filled for some time.

MANCHESTER UNITED

The big question is who will blink first over Jadon Sancho — United or Dortmund? The Germans still want £110million, United will only pay £90m. There may be fireworks – or just a damp squib. Porto left-back Alex Telles is also on the radar and Edinson Cavani should sign a two-year deal.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

Steve Bruce has already made some solid signings in Callum Wilson, Jamal Lewis, Ryan Fraser and Jeff Hendrick. The Toon boss would love to add another striker or winger, but will be happy with the transfer business he has done if that has to be the lot.

SHEFFIELD UNITED

Striker Rhian Brewster, 20, has joined from Liverpool. Hunting for a left-back, after adding defenders Jayden Bogle and Max Lowe (Derby), keepers Aaron Ramsdale (Bournmemouth) and Wes Foderingham (Rangers), plus shrewd loan grab of Chelsea rock Ethan Ampadu.

SOUTHAMPTON

A quiet summer for Ralph Hasenhuttl with defender Kyle Walker-Peters turning his loan from Tottenham into a permanent deal and centre-back Mohammed Salisu arriving from Real Vallodolid. Saints fans won’t expect any fireworks.

TOTTENHAM

Jose Mourinho still wants a new central defender and Gareth Bale’s return has dominated the headlines, but Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon all look to be good, solid buys. Carlos Vinicius has joined on a season’s loan from Benfica.

WEST BROM

New boys Callum Robinson and Grady Diangana have already hit the goal trail, but that won’t stop Baggies manager Slaven Bilic trying to get a new striker through the door. Watford captain Troy Deeney would love to step back into the Premier League and is a possibility.

WEST HAM

Right-back Vladimir Coufal moved to east London on Friday, the second arrival of the summer with his Czech Republic team-mate Tomas Soucek. David Moyes wants a centre-back, but his bosses are hesitating on the fee for Burnley ace James Tarkowski.

WOLVES

Left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri, 19, is poised to join from French side Angers, with Fabio Silva, 18, at £35million, and Nelson Semedo, 26 (£27m from Barcelona ), the big signings. Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Porto winger Jesus Corona have also been linked.
