With just three weeks until the window closes, what does your club need and who’s free to go?
Sportsmail looks at every Premier League club’s priorities heading into the latter stages of the transfer window assessing their major targets as well the players who could still be moved on.
The Gunners have had one of their best windows and still want to add if their budget can stretch to a wide forward and midfielder. A cut-price deal can be done for Villarreal’s Yerry Pino, while they still hold an interest in Leicester’s Youri Tielemans. But Milan’s Sandro Tonali may prove too expensive.
Who could go: Pablo Mari, Hector Bellerin, Brooke Norton-Cuffy (loan).
Did a lot of their business early in the window, but are still looking to make improvements. Another top forward, midfielder and defender would be useful, especially as interest grows in the unsettled Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings. Striker Raul de Tomas, of Espanyol, has been mentioned but there are concerns about his work-rate off the ball.
Who could go: Tyrone Mings, Kortney Hause, Ollie Watkins, Bertrand Traore.
Tyrone Mings is said to be unsettled at Aston Villa after losing the captaincy this season
Their squad is still light on depth despite adding goalkeeper Neto and Marcos Senesi. Would like another left-back and attacking midfielder.
Who could go: Nathan Moriah-Welsh (loan to Newport).
Danish international Mikkel Damsgaard has arrived from Sampdoria on a five-year deal but they want to add another forward and midfielder. A bid has been rejected by Freiburg for striker Kevin Schade.
Who could go: Charlie Goode.
Brentford completed the signing of Danish midfielder star Mikkel Damsgaard this week
Graham Potter is prepared to go with the squad he has as players return from loans and Levi Colwill settles in after his move from Chelsea. They will consider opportunities though if they arise, with Espanyol left-back Adria Pedrosa and Villarreal’s Pervis Estupinan on their list, as well as Ecuador midfielder Jose Cifuentes from LA Galaxy.
Who could go: Matt Clarke.
Owner Todd Boehly is trying to make up for lost time by delivering what Thomas Tuchel wants. They are working on an £80million offer for Leicester’s Wesley Fofana and want Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona. Talks have also taken place over Denzel Dumfries and Cesare Casadei at Inter Milan, Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona and Celtic’s Josip Juranovic.
Who could go: Marcos Alonso, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Emerson, Armando Broja, Billy Gilmour, Ross Barkley, Hakim Ziyech, Michy Batshuayi.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has emerged as a shock target for Chelsea’s striker issues
Patrick Vieira wants an attacking midfielder and has asked about Wolves’ Morgan Gibbs-White and Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi is another who is admired, although there is the prospect once again that star man Wilfried Zaha could leave. Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka could return on loan.
Who could go: Wilfried Zaha, Jesurun Rak Sakyi (loan).
Frank Lampard hopes to seal a deal for RB Salzburg’s Mohamed Camara and is desperate to add a quality striker. Chelsea’s Armando Broja is one option and Rennes’ Serhou Guirassy is another, but a move for Michy Batshuayi has been dismissed. Coventry’s Viktor Gyokeres is a surprise name in the frame.
Who could go: Allan, Andre Gomes, Michael Keane, Yerry Mina, Jean-Philippe Gbamin
Chelsea’s Armando Broja is still interesting several Premier League clubs including Everton
Premier League clubs spending has tipped over the £1.3billion mark so far in this window
Marco Silva signed Issa Diop from West Ham yesterday for £15m and hopes to secure Justin Kluivert on an initial loan from Roma, after a knee injury ruled out new signing Manor Solomon. Silva still wants another striker and midfielder.
Who could go: Rodrigo Muniz, Ivan Cavaleiro, Terence Kongolo.
Leeds have signed keeper Joel Robles and ideally want cover at left-back and another striker. But boss Jesse Marsch is happy to go with the squad he has, which could prove a risk with their recent injury record. Paris Saint-Germain striker Arnaud Kalimuendo is no longer an option as he is joining Rennes while, despite rumours, Juan Mata is not joining on a free as it stands.
Who could go: Mateusz Klich.
Leicester need to sell before they attempt to strengthen owing to financial fair play but don’t want to lose Wesley Fofana who is the subject of an £80m bid from Chelsea. They want another centre-back and admire Turkey midfielder Orkun Kokcu at Feyenoord. Chelsea’s Hudson-Odoi has been floated but they want a left-footed winger who can play off the right.
Who could go: Caglar Soyuncu, Jannik Vestergaard, Wesley Fofana.
Wesley Fofana has been the subject on interest from Chelsea and could still leave the club
With Thiago out for four weeks, Jurgen Klopp is facing the call to strengthen his fragile midfield but has so far resisted, with Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham the long-term target for next summer. He may trust Harvey Elliott with a central role in the interim. They admire Villarreal winger Yeremi Pino, but it’s not a priority.
Who could go: Sepp van den Berg, Nat Phillips, Curtis Jones.
City are mindful of sourcing a replacement for Bernardo Silva if Barcelona find a way to make a deal happen. Lyon’s Lucas Paqueta has been discussed, while talks are ongoing over a move for promising Anderlecht left wing-back Sergio Gomez. They may still add another more experienced left-back before the window closes with Dortmund’s Raphael Guerreiro, Borna Sosa, of Stuttgart, and Benfica’s Alex Grimaldo all discussed.
Who could go: Bernardo Silva, Liam Delap (loan).
Barcelona remain keen on trying to prize Bernardo Silva away from the Etihad this summer
Football director John Murtough is in talks to finalise a contract for Adrien Rabiot. Boss Erik Ten Hag still wants Frenkie de Jong but should that falter the funds set aside will be put towards a forward. PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo is an option as is striker Sasa Kalajdzic at Stuttgart. United have also shown interest in Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic.
Who could go: Eric Bailly, James Garner, Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Jonjo Shelvey’s hamstring injury has prompted a bid for James Maddison, but they fell well short. They want a young striker and have asked about Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos, while Rennes winger Kamaldeen Sulemana is admired.
Who could go: Jamal Lewis, Jamaal Lascelles, Javier Manquillo, Matt Ritchie.
Leicester have already rejected one bid from Newcastle for James Maddison’s services
Have revived their interest in Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis and are determined to add another left-back, two midfielders and a forward. Wolves’ Morgan Gibbs-White is their main target, while free agent Cheikhou Kouyate is expected to sign. Enquiries have been made for Pervis Estupinan at Villarreal, Mbaye Dieng at Marseille and Goncalo Ramos at Benfica. Manchester United’s James Garner remains a possibility too.
Who could go: Harry Arter, Richie Laryea.
The Saints’ emphasis is on youth. They want a right-sided centre-back, a forward and cover at right-back. Marseille right-back Pol Lirola is one option they are discussing, while they are also among the clubs in for Callum Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea. They hope to resist bids for star midfielder James Ward-Prowse.
Who could go: Alex McCarthy, Yan Valery, Kyle Walker-Peters, James Ward-Prowse.
Are concentrating on sales before they assess whether to add two more signings, with an attacking midfielder and centre-back still on boss Antonio Conte’s list.
Who could go: Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Bryan Gil, Tanguy Ndombele, Pape Matar Sarr (loan).
Harry Winks has not been included as part of Antonio Conte’s Premier League squad this year
David Moyes is focusing on signing a centre-back, with a bid in for Thilo Kehrer at PSG, while Eric Bailly at Manchester United is a potential option too. Moyes also wants a left-back and midfielder and will assess potential late loan deals, with Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher under consideration.
Who could go: Said Benrahma, Nikola Vlasic.
The addition of Goncalo Guedes gives them a vital attacking option but Wolves want another striker. Bordeaux forward Hwang Ui-Jo and Strasbourg’s Ludovic Ajorque are two under discussion. Bruno Lage also wants another midfielder with Morgan Gibbs-White set to leave. They have a long-held interest in Matheus Nunes at Sporting.
Who could go: Morgan Gibbs-White.
