  • Idrissa Gueye rejoins Everton
  • Martin Dubravka goes on loan from Newcastle to Man United
  • Nottingham Forest sign Willy Boly from Wolves
  • Jack Stephens heads to Bournemouth on loan

DEADLINE HAS PASSED! At 6pm the window shut but you know more deals will happen as the paperwork gets sorted.

Aubameyang and Zakaria to Chelsea still not confirmed, while Duje Caleta-Car to Southampton and Dan James’ move to Fulham have both been confirmed. Stay with us. Still plenty going on!

5:27pm: We are LIVE! Send in your questions for us now.

5:20pm: Everton have signed James Garner from Manchester United!

5:01pm: There is one right away! Arthur Mello to Liverpool from Juventus on loan. Confirmed. What a big signing that is for Klopp. He needed extra cover in midfield.

5pm: One hour to go until the summer transfer window closes! Are we going to see a flurry of late deals!?

4:45pm: This is a great move for USMNT center back John Brooks. He was a free agent but has landed at Benfica. Could this be the move which gets him back into the USMNT squad for the World Cup? He will be playing in the Champions League and replaces Jan Vertonghen, who is heading to Anderlecht.

4:05pm: Denis Zakaria is heading to Chelsea to bolster their midfield.

4:00pm: Ainsley Maitland-Niles heads to Southampton on loan from Arsenal. A very versatile player and this is a good pick-up from Southampton. Maitland-Niles, 25, was on loan at Roma last season.

3:52pm: More reaction from Sergino Dest’s move to Milan. Initially on loan but the Italian giants can sign him for $20 million. This is a very good move for Dest.

3:45pm: Tick-tock! Just over two hours of the summer window left and there are still plenty of deals developing. Michy Batshuayi to Nottingham Forest and Dan James to Fulham are just a couple of the deals still in the works.

3pm: Leander Dendoncker is headed from Wolves to Aston Villa for around $16 million in a move that will strengthen Villa… but hold on, right?

Does this move signal that Villa could be talked into selling Douglas Luiz with Arsenal said to want to reunite the ex-Man City prospect with former City assistant Mikel Arteta?

2:21pm: USMNT back Sergino Dest is staying in the UEFA Champions League, heading from Barcelona to AC Milan on loan with a reported $20 million option to buy.

Milan has also signed Schalke upstart Malick Thiaw.

2:01pm: Chelsea’s said to have landed Denis Zakaria from Juventus. The Swiss midfielder only moved to Juve from Borussia Monchengladbach in January, and this could be a big move for the Blues.

Zakaria’s been wanted by many clubs, at least in the rumor mill, and could represent a coup for Thomas Tuchel.

A loan-to-buy deal is nice for Chelsea, who would add a World Cup-level midfielder that is still 25 until November.

Zakaria is an excellent reader of the game both in progressing the ball through passing and dribbling, and also defensively when it comes to interceptions.

1:26pm: Man City teenager Lucas Mbete is heading on loan to Huddersfield Town in the Championship. The 18-year-old was an unused sub for a pair of Premier League matches earlier this season, and made three senior appearances across cup competitions last season.

12:50pm: David De Gea is back in form but any struggles won’t leave Erik ten Hag without options.

Martin Dubravka is going on loan to Manchester United from Newcastle, where he’s starred for a long time but has slipped behind Nick Pope in the pecking order.

12:10pm: It is getting very busy now. Billy Gilmour is heading to Brighton on a permanent deal, according to Fabrizio Romano, while Southampton look set to sign Croatian international Duje Caleta-Car from Marseille for up to $10 million. It’s all going on!

11:59am: Willian has agreed a one-year deal at Fulham. The 34-year-old Brazilian winger is heading back to the Premier League.

11:45am: Frank Lampard has received a big addition to his midfield options, as Idrissa Gueye has re-joined. The Senegalese midfielder will add plenty of grit to Everton’s engine room and is exactly the type of player they need. Okay, next step: a striker.

11:32am: Layvin Kurzawa has signed for Fulham on loan from PSG. That will strengthen the Cottagers’ defense. Excellent signing.

11:25am: El Tri fans, a little update for you on Edson Alvarez. According to reports in Holland, Ajax have met with Alvarez and told him he will not be sold on deadline day and will not be moving to Chelsea. That’s the end of that one, I guess.

11:05am: USMNT fans, big news on John Brooks. The free agent pulled out of a move to Real Mallorca in La Liga at the last moment and reports in Portugal state he is now heading to Benfica. That would be a great move for Brooks, 29, as he will be playing in the Champions League. This is exactly the reason why he became a free agent and was holding out for the right situation.

11am: A few twists and turns now as Willian appears to be heading to Fulham along with Dan James on loan, while Jan Bednarek appears to moving to Aston Villa on loan instead of West Ham. Also, Arsenal are really pushing hard to sign Douglas Luiz…

 

9:15am: Joao Pedro is not heading to Everton as he’s revealed he is staying at Watford but the Toffees are expected to add two central midfielders. Idrissa Gueye is heading back to Everton, according to our partners in the UK at Sky Sports, while James Garner is set to join from Manchester United for around $17.3 million.

9:10am: A few more moves to keep an eye on are Hector Bellerin to Barcelona, as he has reportedly terminated his contract at Arsenal and he’s heading back to his boyhood club.

8:52am: One to keep an eye on, as Mexico star Edson Alvarez is reportedly not training for Ajax as he seeks to push through a potential $50 million move to Chelsea. El Tri fans will be very excited by the possibility of Alvarez heading to Stamford Bridge.

8:45am: Liverpool have been planning to bring in a new central midfielder given all of their injury issues in that area and it appears that Juventus and Brazil midfielder Arthur Melo is their main target. Talks are ongoing over a loan deal for Arthur.

8:40am: Leeds are making a late move for Marseille and Senegal forward Bamba Dieng, with Dan James heading to Fulham on loan.

8:14am: This Aubameyang deal is developing quickly, as he is now flying to London to complete the formalities.

7:30am: Chelsea and Barcelona have finally agreed a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as the 33-year-old striker has also agreed terms with the west London club. Aubameyang is heading back to London and the former Arsenal star will reunite with Thomas Tuchel, as the duo enjoyed a hugely successful spell together at Borussia Dortmund.


7:15am: Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Swiss center back Manuel Akanji. The 27-year-old joins from Borussia Dortmund and adds vast experience and depth to City’s defense. Given some of the injury issues they’ve had at center back in recent seasons, this is a very savvy move and Akanji reportedly cost just $18 million as he was in the final year of his deal at Dortmund.

7am: Plenty of dominoes are starting to fall as deals gather pace on Deadline Day. Aston Villa are close to signing Leander Dendoncker from Wolves and it looks like he could replace Douglas Luiz who has been linked with a $29 million move to Arsenal due to only having one year left on his contract. Elsewhere, Wolves also look set to sign West Ham defender Craig Dawson and that means West Ham will move to sign Southampton center back Jan Bednarek on loan. And that means Southampton are planning to sign Marseille center back Duje Caleta-Car. And that means Jack Stephens is also expected to join Bournemouth on loan. Basically, deadline day is like trying to sell a house, which is in a ridiculously long chain, in just a few hours…

6:55am: Manchester United have completed the signing of Antony from Ajax, with the transfer fee expected to be in the region of $100 million. This is a huge signing for United and their new boss Erik ten Hag.

6:45am: A few deals we expected to happen don’t seem to be materilazing as Cody Gakpo isn’t heading to Leeds or Southampton. Both wanted to sign the Dutch winger but PSV have decided to hold onto their prized possession, for now. Ukraine winger Mykhaylo Mudryk is also staying at Shakhtar Donetsk as both Brentford and Everton wanted to sign him.

Fulham and Newcastle United look set to entertain when Aleksandar Mitrovic entertains his old mates for a Saturday morning tilt at Craven Cottage on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).

STREAM LIVE FULHAM vs NEWCASTLE

The Magpies are injury-hit but Eddie Howe has enjoyed pushing for offense and has largely found chances regardless of who’s been on the field, while Marco Silva’s Cottagers are healthy and have been on the front foot as often as possible during their Premier League return.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Fulham vs Newcastle.

Key storylines & star players

Somewhere in the multiverse, Mitrovic’s tied for the Golden Boot lead because Erling Haaland is an actual superhero. The Fulham man has six goals to tie Harry Kane five behind Man City’s prolific Norwegian hitman. Kenny Tete’s assisted three of those goals, and Tete’s also top six in tackles. Teammate Joao Palhinha is first.

Newcastle, meanwhile, is dealing with a ridiculous amount of injuries to key players, as Bruno Guimares, Chris Wood, and Alexander Isak were both hurt on international break to join Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin as walking wounded attackers.

Liverpool plays its first Premier League match in 25 days when high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion debut a new manager as visitors at Anfield on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).

Roberto De Zerbi takes the wheel for the Seagulls following Graham Potter’s move to Chelsea, and Brighton will be staging its first match since a 5-2 demolition of Leicester City on Sept. 4.

STREAM LIVE LIVERPOOL vs BRIGHTON

That was one day after Liverpool drew Everton 0-0 at Goodison Park in a Merseyside derby that came on the heels of back-to-back wins for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

Liverpool’s currently four points back of fourth-place Brighton; Both clubs have played six matches, one fewer than 14 other Premier League sides.

Key storylines & star players

Is Liverpool ready to turn chances into goals at a more familiar rate? The Reds’ expected goal total for this season is close to leaders Manchester City and Arsenal but its actual goal production is fifth and somewhat-inflated by their nine-goal beatdown of Bournemouth previously this season.

Brighton, meanwhile, has to show that it’s getting a handle on life after Graham Potter, as De Zerbi’s credentials say things might not look too different. The former Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk boss craves possession in his teams and delivers chances as a boss in the manner you’d expect from a former attacking midfielder.

Chelsea looks to keep up its top-four pace when it visits Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET on USA Network and online via NBCSports.com).

The match is Graham Potter’s first in the Premier League since leaving Brighton for new digs in London. The Blues drew Salzburg in 1-1 in Potter’s first match with Chelsea, and many eyes will be trained on his Starting XI.

STREAM LIVE CRYSTAL PALACE vs CHELSEA

Palace is winless in its last three Premier League matches including back-to-back draws versus Brentford and Newcastle. Patrick Vieira would love to make that a three-match unbeaten run with a good result Saturday.

Key storylines & star players

What will Graham Potter’s first Premier League XI look like come Saturday? Kepa Arrizabalaga could be in goal if Edouard Mendy is not ready, but will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remain a starter? Are Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic locks for the midfield? Lots to monitor as Christian Pulisic, Conor Gallagher, Ben Chilwell, and Hakim Ziyech will hope to have made a major impression.

Palace has played well against the “Big Six” this year, leading Man City 2-0 before an Erling Haaland hat trick, drawing Liverpool, and losing on Opening Day vs Arsenal while holding 57% of the ball and matching the Gunners in shots and shots on target. A win over the Blues sure would do the trick.
