Ahh another deadline day. Jim White’s tie, the mythical fax machine and a host of excitement over who is signing who. It’s the marmite of all days, be you a player, manager, chairman or supporter.
Here we take a look at the shock deals that could be done by six o’clock this evening.
The Ox Upping Sticks?
This one is gathering pace at an alarming rate if you’re an Arsenal fan. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a major target for Galatasaray. The Turkish club has sent a representative to London according to reports, and they are willing to go big for the England international.
This Cannot Happen. Pretty much bang on. The Turkish transfer window has closed and selling the Ox would be crazy. He’s been one of the Gunners’ top performers.
Wenger Heads To Paris To Grab A Pair
Arsenal need a striker and a midfielder, we all know this, and it appears that Arsene Wenger may also have clocked on. The north Londoners’ boss is trying to tie up deals for Edinson Cavani and former Spurs target Adrien Rabiot.
Please Be True! Here’s hoping, eh? This would be ideal for Arsenal fans and the Premier League in general. Cavani especially would provide a massive boost and Rabiot is a genuine holding midfielder; imagine of those playing for Arsenal again!
Austin To Arrive In Toon
Newcastle are a little light in the striker department, Papiss Cisse wants a move and with Aleksandr Mitrovic a little, shall we say, keen, Austin could be the answer. Proven at Premier League level and eager to get back to the top, he’d be a real coup for the Magpies.
He’s Too Good For The Championship. He certainly is. It’s strange no one has come in and stumped up the supposed £15m asking price for the England man. Someone should and the north-east would be a sensible destination.
Jose To Collect Pogs
Chelsea’s troubled start to the Premier League season has stemmed from a rotting core. The midfield looks flimsy and Pogba is anything but. They tried to get him earlier in the window and a late move could be on the cards.
Bit Big for Deadline Day. You may think so, but the Blues have the financial firepower to pull it off. They are already miles behind Man City and anything less than the title is failure for the Pensioners.
Louis To Go Striker Crazy
We all know about the ludicrously expensive acquisition of Anthony Martial, a move that is expected to be confirmed later today, but with Hernandez gone and Wilson set to leave on loan, surely they must sign another forward.
That Doesn’t Tell Us Much. We know, your guess is as good as ours. Most likely would be a move for Saido Berahino, with James Wilson going the other way.
