Deadline Day Football Transfers That Could Happen

Marco Silva is determined to sign a centre-back before the transfer window closes on Thursday, with Kurt Zouma yet to be replaced following the expiry of his loan agreement with Chelsea.

Should Everton improve their offer, Zaha could become the most expensive African player of all time, breaking the £72 million (R1.3 billion) record recently set by new Arsenal signing Nicolas Pepe.

Meanwhile, Tottenham made the headlines on a busy final day of the EPL transfer window with deals in the pipeline for Giovani lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon, but their hopes of signing Paulo Dybala are fading. With 12 Scotland caps and over 150 Celtic appearances under his belt, Tierney has the experience to slot straight into the Arsenal back four - an area the Gunners addressed even further with the even later signing of David Luiz. Obviously my joy is to play football and not just sit out.

Argentine global midfielder Lo Celso is expected to complete a season-long loan deal that will contain an obligation on Tottenham's part to make the transfer permanent next summer.

The Premier League side have reportedly made a bid of £30 million for the Nigerian global, which was rejected by the Gunners.

The Gunners are reportedly interested in Juventus's Daniele Rugani but the Serie A giants are reluctant to let the defender leave. Scotland global Tierney had been a target all summer for the Gunners and agreement of the payment structure of his £25 million ($30 million) move from Celtic was eventually agreed on Wednesday night. Since winning the Europa League, Chelsea have lost star playmaker Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and hired an idolised but inexperienced new manager in Frank Lampard, who is working under the club's transfer ban.

Speaking during the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this summer, where he helped Nigeria to a third-placed finish, Iwobi admitted that he would have to consider leaving his boyhood club if he believed he might struggle to get regular playing time.

The confirmation of Harry Maguire's move to Manchester United is one of the biggest stories to come out of the window, if only because of the £80 million fee that he demanded.
