5 deals that could go through before Thursday’s Premier League transfer deadline. With teams scrambling for players, here are the 5 likeliest deals that could happen by tomorrow 5 pm.
The English transfer window is at its end and many teams have used it efficiently to bolster their squad and, in some cases, even overhaul it. There have been plenty big money signings and several club records have been broken including the world record for the price of a defender.
While most teams are more or less settled, there are still some teams who are hoping to make that last-minute additions and iron out their team before the new season takes place on August 9th. Here are 5 deals that could go through before Thursday’s Premier League transfer deadline.
Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace to Everton)
Wilfried Zaha has made it evidently clear to Crystal Palace that he wants to move to a top 6 club. One that could possibly help him play in the Champions League. He had made it known that Arsenal was his desired destination. However, Palace’s evaluation of £80m for their star asset meant the North London side turned their attention elsewhere.
It is now Everton who are actively pursuing him. Sky Sports have reported that Everton have bid £70million, plus two players for Zaha. However, Palace are adamant in their demand for north of £80m. As good as Zaha is, the price he is being valued at is insane. There are far better players out there in that price range. Without European football though, Everton will find it hard to convince players to join them and Zaha will obviously prove to be an upgrade. With just another day to go, it is likely that Everton will bend to Crystal Palace’s demands.
