The time for Premier League clubs to make signings this summer is over, but we could still see plenty of major Premier League transfer news in the coming weeks.
Most clubs around Europe can still bring new players in, and there’s nothing stopping the likes of Man United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham selling players if they want to.
Meanwhile, they may also be forced to let some star names go even if they don’t want to, as Europe’s elite like Real Madrid and Juventus won’t have any sympathy for their rivals being unable to sign replacements until January.
Here’s a look at ten major exits we could see from the Premier League before the transfer window finally closes elsewhere.
Despite no new midfielder coming in this summer, it’s claimed Manchester United could still be prepared to make the surprise choice to sell Paul Pogba to Juventus.
As noted by the Express, who state Juventus remain eager to raise the funds to sign the France international, who is available for £150million.
It’s an ambitious deal to get done, but Man United’s apparent willingness to do business surely means we haven’t heard the end of this major saga just yet.
With Wayne Rooney’s exit from DC United in the near future recently confirmed, it’s little surprise to see there now seems an obvious potential move for Mesut Ozil.
No longer at his best for Arsenal, the German playmaker looks like he could do with a step down to a less competitive level of football, and he’d make sense as a replacement for Rooney.
The Express claim talks are planned over Ozil’s move to the MLS, with Arsenal keen to get the high earner off their books, with loan signing Dani Ceballos looking good enough to fill his number ten role in Unai Emery’s team.
Eriksen was Linked with Man United move this summer, a deal didn’t work out as Sky Sports recently claimed he wanted a move abroad instead.
So while the Red Devils can no longer sign Christian Eriksen, there’s nothing standing in the way of the Denmark international getting a big move to Real Madrid, or somewhere else for that matter.
With Eriksen in the final year of his Tottenham contract, the club could do well to cash in on him now, with Giovani Lo Celso’s arrival potentially hinting that they do expect their star player to move on.
A player perhaps unlikely to feature highly in Liverpool’s plans, it’s little surprise to see talk of Croatian defender Dejan Lovren potentially leaving Anfield.
As per Corriere dello Sport, Roma are keen on doing a deal for Lovren, with the two clubs nearing an agreement over the move.
Lovren has never exactly looked that convincing at Liverpool so it could make sense for the club to cash in on him now and build around the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez instead.
Another Premier League defender being linked with Roma is Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld, whose future has been in doubt for some time.
A report from the print edition of Il Messaggero, as re-reported by Calciomercato, has stated Alderweireld has agreed terms over a move to Roma.
While it seems risky for Spurs to let the Belgian go now, an exit has looked on the cards for him for some time now.
Another big name who could surely still be heading out of Manchester United is Alexis Sanchez after his dire form for the club.
It’s perhaps unsurprising that MUFC have struggled to offload the under-performing Chilean, but they may still have a chance while other leagues can still make signings.
The Telegraph have linked Sanchez with a possible loan move to Roma, which might be the best outcome at this point.
A top talent who’s really lost his way, it is surely nearly the end for Tiemoue Bakayoko at Chelsea.
Loaned out to AC Milan last season, the former Monaco man is now back at Stamford Bridge but looking unlikely to have much of a first-team role under Frank Lampard.
According to the Evening Standard, another loan could be on the cards before the summer’s done, with Galatasaray looking Bakayoko’s most likely next destination.
It’s somewhat surprising that Danny Rose is still at Tottenham after being frozen out by the club over the summer.
It was reported that the England international missed out on the start of Spurs’ pre-season tour as he was expected to be sold, according to the Telegraph.
Well, it could still happen as he’s been linked with interest from abroad by the Sun, who claimed Paris Saint-Germain seemed to be leading the chase for his signature.
