There’s not long before the transfer deadline, so stay tuned to The Independent’s live coverage of the latest transfer news, gossip and offers made today as Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur all attempt to make additions in delay to secure a boost for the rest of the season. The Premier League is among the most active leagues in Europe before Friday’s deadline, while Serie A clubs are always willing to do business.
United’s pursuit of Sporting Lisbon skipper Bruno Fernandes in what was the biggest window saga, appears to have stalled, with the club ready to admit defeat by delivering Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reinforcements despite the loss of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay injuries. Former United boss Jose Mourinho appears to have more joy for Spurs, particularly through PSV’s Steven Bergwijn.
Barcelona are frantically looking for a new striker due to Luis Suarez’s serious injury, with Rodrigo the main candidate, although their quest has seen them linked to Olivier Giroud, while a move for ex Sevilla star Wissam Ben Yedder may prove smart due to the expected rapid transition to La Liga, but Monaco would require around £ 67 million if rumors are believed. Arsenal, at the beginning of a new era with Mikel Arteta, failed to spend generously to speed up the process, while Frank Lampard is destined to be disappointed by Chelsea, unable to spend Eden Hazard’s money from selling to Real Madrid last summer despite lifting the transfer ban. The Blues could enter into a loan agreement, with Krzysztof Piatek, also a target for Spurs, mentioned, but they could otherwise maintain their budget for next summer.
