Every day deadline deals are made plus Caicedo’s Arsenal attitude and Cancelo’s exit – Blessing Sports News
January transfer deadline is one of the most tumultuous on the football calendar so stay with us here at Mirror Football for all the movers and movers this Tuesday
It’s January transfer deadline day – the most frenetic date on the football calendar, and we’re expecting some last-minute movers and shakers this Tuesday.
Arsenal are still very much in their pursuit of Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo and are heaping pressure on the south coast side to make a decision after making a third bid for the Ecuadorian.
Elsewhere, Pep Guardiola is open to fielding Joao Cancelo, with the Manchester City defender falling out of favor at the Etihad. Bayern Munich are ready to offer him an exit via loan deal with a view to making the transfer permanent for €70m (£61m).
Chelsea are still behind Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez, while Manchester United’s Erik ten Hag and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp keep their cards close to their chest but are unlikely to make any signings this Tuesday.
Premier League clubs have until 23:00 to finalize their dealings on this deadline day unless a deal sheet is submitted within two hours of the deadline, proving that both parties have agreed to a transfer but just need a little more time to tie things together. .
Jorginho moves in balance
Arsenal’s bid to sign midfielder Jorginho from Chelsea hinges on whether the Blues sign Enzo Fernandez from Benfica, The Athletic reports.
The Gunners are hoping to add depth to their midfield and challenge Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny for a place.
Jorginho’s contract is set to expire in the summer, meaning he could leave as a free agent if the Blues don’t cash in today – but a deal hinges on whether Fernandez moves to Stamford Bridge.
