So, the final hours of this chaotic summer transfer window are upon us. Read all live updates here!


Arsenal have had a 2nd bid of £25M rejected for Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz. The player is still pushing for the move, but Villa are not open to selling him. The Gunners are still pushing for the move and a third bid is a possibility.


Newcastle Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka has joined Manchester United on a season long loan deal. The deal has been set to be completed for a while, but the deal is finally over the line. He will go back up north at the end of the season when Dean Henderson returns from his Nottingham Forest loan. Dubravka will be second choice at Old Trafford.


Idrissa Gana Gueye has rejoined Everton from Paris Saint Germain. The midfielder left Goodison Park 3 years ago and joins back for an undisclosed fee. He signs until 2024.


Denis Zakaria could make a late Deadline Day switch to Chelsea. The Blues are in talks with Juventus over a loan deal with the view to buy. The Swiss midfielder joined last season from Borussia Monchengladbach. The player is understood to want the move. It’s now up to Juventus on whether they would permit his exit. This is one to keep an eye on.


We said it was one to keep an eye on just a few moments ago. According to The Athletics’ David Ornstein, Denis Zakaria is undergoing a medical in Turin ahead of a loan to Chelsea with the option to buy. Personal terms agreed already, this one should be done in the next few hours if all goes to plan.


Nottingham Forest are set to sign Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea and make their 20th signing of the window, according to Fabrizio Romano. The fee is unknown at this moment, but Forest are well and truly set for the Premier League, being able to field 2 Starting 11s with their new additions, a competition record.


It’s been a hectic deadline day at PSG, and it isn’t over yet. The French side have just completed the signing of Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler for a fee of around £20M. The Spaniard signs until 2027. PSG have also let Idrissa Gana Gueye and Julian Draxler depart today.


It’s Official. Aston Villa have completed the signing of Wolves midfielder Leander Dendoncker for a fee in the region of £15M. This may well impact the future of Douglas Luiz, who has had 2 bids from Arsenal rejected for him today. Another to keep an eye on as we head into the last 3 hours of the transfer window.


Some interesting names in the squads in the game between Leicester and Manchester United tonight. For the home team, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison who have heavily been linked with moves away from the King Power this summer both start. For United, Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to stay at Old Trafford until January at least, he’s on United’s bench tonight.


This Douglas Luiz saga looks to go down right to the wire. It his understood that Arsenal have made an improved third bid for the midfielder with the Aston Villa hierarchy taking the offer into serious consideration. Luiz has one year left on his contract. More to follow.


Nottingham Forest have agreed on deal to sign Serge Aurier as free agent, it depends on visa and then work permit as to whether the deal gets completed. They will also have to file in the required paperwork to the Premier League before 11PM. A race against the clock for Nottingham Forest’s potentially 21st signing after Michy Batshuayi deal.


1 hour to go, and Douglas Luiz is on his way to London! Despite an agreement not being reached between Arsenal and Villa, Luiz is pushing for the move and wants to give himself the best chance to complete the transfer. The bid we reported on an hour ago hasn’t been accepted nor rejected. Decisive minutes coming up in this deal. Also, despite rumours, Memphis Depay won’t join Chelsea, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will. Marcos Alonso moves the other way in a separate deal whilst Hector Bellerin also joins the Spanish side. That is window over for Barcelona.


Bid rejected and possibly game over in Arsenal’s pursuit of Douglas Luiz. A new Aston Villa contract could now be on the cards. Steven Gerrard will let the player go in January, Arsenal were the only club interested as Liverpool decided to sign Arthur Melo instead.

Swansea City and a host of other Championship clubs are working on a deal to sign Spurs midfielder Harvey White on loan, The Centre Spot understands.

Harvey White is a highly rated young, energetic box-to-box midfielder who loves to get forward. The 20-year-old posses a similar build to that of new acquisition Joe Allen. 

The youngster spent last season on loan at Portsmouth and put up some very good stats:

1 Goal

75% Pass Accuracy

0.6 Key Passes Per Game

0.2 Interceptions Per Game

1.2 Tackles Per Game

0.6 Dribbles Completed Per Game

33% Dribble Success 

49% Duels Won

White has been involved with Conte’s pre season and had an impressive game against K-League All Stars. Swansea is the not the only club interested in the wonderkid with a plethora of EFL Clubs keeping their eye out. A final decision will be made on the midfielders future in the next days, with Conte looking to set up his squad perfectly ahead of what promises to be an exhausting season, competing in the Premier League, Champions League, Carabao Cup and the FA Cup. The club already have players occupying White’s role in the squad however with the likes of Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp, Rodrigo Bentancur all part of the plans ahead of the new season. This will present more of an opportunity for EFL clubs to sign him provide a good amount of game time ahead of a possible bright future in North London.

FC Barcelona And Chelsea FC’s Conflicting Transfer Targets have tarnished the Relationship between the two clubs.

With the Catalan side Hijacking Leeds winger Raphinha Belloli earlier this month and are set to see 23 year old French defender Jules Kounde follow a similar path.

Chelsea look set to cut all relations with the Catalan Giants and refuse to negotiate any sort of Transfers.

Chelsea have made the decision to block the transfers of Barcelona targets Azpilecueta and Alonso at all costs. However allowing the pair to leave any other team.

Chelsea will accept FC Barcelona’s Offer for the players, Only if it’s a very important and high valued Offer.

CFC were open to let Azpilicueta leave for €3M, but now are demanding €10M.

Chelsea were supposedly looking to hijack Manchester United Target Frenkie De Jong. But have planned not to exercise the option.

Thomas Tuchel is very irritated. Evident from the remarks made a few days before.

Manchester City are set to open official discussions with Brighton over the Spaniard, Marc Cucurella.

With Ukrainian, Oleksandr Zinchenko on his way out of Pep Guardiola‘s side Manchester City have already opened talks to adopt a replacement.

Manchester City are currently £20m off of Brighton‘s asking price, which is around £50-55m. Cucurella has been a priority for Pep Guardiola this window, they admire him. Cucurella, in Pep’s opinion, will realistically be the ideal fit for City’s ethic.

Manchester City and Cucurella‘s representatives have almost reached an agreement on personal terms. The La Masia graduate and ex-Barcelona player wants the move to go through.

Manchester City are certainly improving their squad depth as The Citizens aim to win the Champions League this year after years of coming close to the club championship of Europe.

Cucurella, if he were to sign for last season‘s Premier League winners, might not start if Pep is genuinely wanting to efficiently utilize Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker.

Manchester City will certainly be up against competition from Liverpool again this season for the Premier League and they have been preparing for that. So far this window the Citizens have welcomed Stefan Ortega as a backup keeper, Julián Álvarez to bring some firepower up top, Kalvin Phillips from Leeds and arguably the biggest signing of the window Erling Haaland.

Haaland and Julián Álvarez are the only two signings that I can see being featured a ton throughout the season, the other two will most likely be played in games that aren’t that important or they’ll be used in games against mid-table sides.

Cucurella ended last season with the most ball recoveries (247), he was also joint 2nd behind Tyrick Mitchell for most tackles made by defenders (93), and 2nd only to Trent Alexander-Arnold for chances created by defenders from open play last season. (40)

Cucurella sits eighth in the Premier League for accurate final third passes performed last season (531), one of several signs of his outstanding talent at selecting the optimal pass during an offence. Joao Cancelo (847) won this metric in comparison. Therefore, Cucurella ought to hypothetically mix in well at the Etihad.

Arsenal have completed the signing of Manchester City full-back, Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Mikel Arteta‘s side have agreed a deal with Manchester City to bring Oleksandr Zinchenko to London this summer. The fee is around £30M, and the signing is set to be completed by the end of the week. Zinchenko is eager to work with Arteta after Arteta coached Zinchenko during his time at Manchester City.

Gabriel Jesus, who recently joined Arsenal from Manchester City has reportedly managed to persuade Zinchenko to join the Gunners.

After Arsenal missed out on Lisandro Martinez, the Ukrainian would be undoubtedly an excellent option as he’s extremely versatile. Zinchenko features in an attacking midfield role for the Ukraine national team. However, Zinchenko does typically play as a full-back for Pep Guardiola‘s side.

If the Gunners were to use Zinchenko at full-back, the 25-year-old might want reassurance from Arteta that he‘ll get to feature throughout the season. With Nuno Tavares set to be loaned out for the seasonZinchenko will certainly be a part of the team.

Chelsea have completed the signing of Napoli SSC defender, Kalidou Koulibaly after signing Raheem Sterling yesterday. The Blues have reached an agreement to sign the 31-year-old from Napoli for €40m (including add-ons and bonuses). The Senegalese international has signed a 5-year-deal with Thomas Tuchel’s side, his contract will expire on the 30th of June 2027. Koulibaly will €10M per season, Chelsea will now attempt to sign another defender to be paired with Koulibaly!

Some players who have caught the eyes of Chelsea’s representatives are Nathan Ake and Presnel Kimpembe. Despite reports of Chelsea wanting to sign Dutchman, Matthijs de Ligt the likely case is that he’ll sign for Bayern Munich. Chelsea are planning to start talks with PSG over a possible move which will see Kimpembe join the Blues for around €50M… The announcement from Chelsea will be in the coming days.

Koulibaly would fit in well at Chelsea, he would meet with some of his former teammate, Jorginho and his current international teammate, Edouard Mendy. His play style will certainly suit Thomas Tuchel’s current system. Koulibaly can hold up the ball well and is a great passer, he will be a great member of Chelsea’s back five. Koulibaly’s transfer won’t be the last signing that Chelsea make this window whilst being in talks for both Presnel Kimpembe of PSG and former player Nathan Ake at Manchester City.

Benfica‘s Alejandro Grimaldo has been linked with an ambitious move to Premier League giantsArsenal.

Mikel Arteta‘s Arsenal have recently become keenly interested in left-back, Alejandro Grimaldo. Benfica have received a bid of €7m (£5m) for Grimaldo, The Centre Spot understands. Benfica are willing to let Grimaldo go, but whether Arsenal‘s £5m will be enough has not been decided.

The Gunners are suffering with a problem at Left-Back with Tierney being injury prone and Nuno Tavares most likely to exit on loanGrimaldo is an excellent option. The Spaniard would be a great backup due to his superb work rate. Grimaldo like Arsenal’s other full-backs likes to go forward and Grimaldo has picked up 5 goals and 5 assists this season for the Portuguese side. Grimaldo‘s strengths are undoubtedly his playmaking, passing and free-kicks, so if Arsenal want to get the best out of Grimaldo they should seek to capitalize on his strengths.

Arsenal have been working efficiently under the radar recently to promptly get deals done, and this deal is one Mikel Arteta would like to get done quickly. Negotiations will intensify in the upcoming days.

If you haven’t watched Grimaldo play, some players who have a similar play style to him would be Jeremie Frimpong (Bayern Leverkusen), Mattia De Sciglio (Juventus) and Nuno Mendes (PSG). I would recommend watching Grimaldo as he’s a joy to watch, and his work rate would match what the work rate at Arsenal is like. He’d fit in exceptionally at the Gunners.
