10 of the Biggest Premier League Transfers That Could Be Completed Before Deadline Day

There are still plenty of moves to be completed before the summer transfer window slams shut on August 9.

The likes of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are desperate to do some business, while the likes of Leicester City and Burnley are closest to bringing their targets in.

Below is a look at 10 of the biggest Premier League incomings that could be completed before Thursday’s 11pm (BST) deadline.

10. Danny Ings – Liverpool to Crystal Palace

It’s fair to say that Danny Ings has been a flop since his move to Liverpool in 2015, although injuries have not helped his cause.

The striker has only scored four goals in 25 appearances for Liverpool and has now been heavily linked with a move to Crystal Palace, who have already completed the impressive signing of Max Meyer on a free.

Good deal? No.

Probability: 7/10.

9. Joe Hart – Manchester City to Burnley

With injuries to both Nick Pope and Tom Heaton, signing Joe Hart would be a smart piece of business for Burnley.

However, it could make the future difficult for the other two goalkeepers, as Joe Hart will be wanting regular football to re-stake his claim for a place in the England squad. The fact that all three Burnley goalkeepers will be competing for the England shirt makes things even more interesting.

Good deal? Yes.

Probability: 8/10.

8. Wilfred Zaha – Crystal Palace to Chelsea

Zaha showed decent form for Palace last season and is undoubtedly one of their key players this term.

However, he is nowhere near the calibre of player that Chelsea are after so, while this move has been heavily touted, it seems unlikely to go ahead. Never say never, though.

The tricky winger seems unlucky to be the calibre of player that Chelsea are after, particularly if they keep hold of Eden Hazard and Willian.

Good deal? No.

Probability: 3/10.

7. Theo Hernandez – Real Madrid to Fulham

Fulham have already had a sensational summer window and it could get even better if they pull this loan move off.

The 20-year-old left back featured 23 times for Real Madrid last season but does not appear to be in the immediate plans of new boss Julen Lopetegui.

Hernandez could join the likes of Jean Michael Seri and Andre Schurrle at Craven Cottage for Fulham’s first season back in the Premier League.

Good deal? Yes.

Probability: 7/10.

6. Rachid Ghezzal – AS Monaco to Leicester City

This move looks like a done deal, with reports in France claiming that the player has already passed a medical and agreed personal terms with the Foxes.

Leicester may well have got themselves a decent signing, but he is not the same calibre of player as Riyad Mahrez – who they are looking to replace. It is more likely that he has been drafted in to replace Ahmed Musa, who recently left the Foxes.

Good deal? Yes.

Probability: 9/10.

5. Christian Pulisic – Borussia Dortmund to Chelsea

The 19-year-old has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, although nothing concrete seems to have emerged.

It is hard to see, at this stage, where Pulisic would fit into the Chelsea side, but he could be a fantastic option from the bench as he would compliment the plethora of strong attacking talent that the club already has in abundance.

Good deal? Yes.

Probability: 4/10.

4. Yerry Mina – Barcelona to Manchester United

Mina has not particularly impressed for Barcelona and, controversially, he didn’t really have a particularly glowing World Cup campaign this summer either.

Manchester United are desperate for a centre back and have been linked with moves for Mina, Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld (see below).

Mourinho has plenty of centre backs who need a strong, experienced partner beside them this season. Mina is not that partner. Quite the opposite.

Good deal? No.

Probability: 4/10.

3. Toby Alderweireld – Tottenham Hotspur to Manchester United

Alderweireld is one of many central defenders who have been linked with United this summer. The section on Yerry Mina (above) pretty much applies to Alderweireld too, although he is a much better defender than the young Barcelona man.

He’s got the experience to bring on the likes of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof too. He’s perfect for Unit

Good deal? Yes.

Probability: 8/10.

2. Aaron Ramsey – Arsenal to Chelsea

This potential move has caused absolute uproar among Arsenal fans this summer, who are sick of seeing their best players move on to sign for their rivals. (Robin van Persie, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain etc).

However, it would be a great signing for Chelsea. Ramsey could thrive alongside Jorginho and N’Golo Kanté in the Chelsea midfield.

Good deal? Yes.

Probability: 6/10.

1. Willian – Chelsea to Manchester United

Willian had a fantastic season for Chelsea last term and enjoyed an even better World Cup over the summer.

This deal would be a fantastic bit of business for Manchester United, who have had a poor transfer window this summer – bringing in only Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.

Good deal? Yes.

Probability: 5/10.
