    DAW STILL OPEN

    West Ham will need to come up with a bid of around £4million to sign Watford defender Craig Dawson in the “domestic” window.

    The Hammers are turning their attention to the veteran centre-half, 30, having failed with a series of bids for more expensive defenders during the main transfer window.

    Bids of around £30m were knocked back for Burnley's James Tarkowski and Jonathan Tah of Bayer Leverkusen.

    And on deadline day, an attempt to sign Fikayo Tomori on loan from Chelsea fell through.

    Ex-West Brom defender Dawson has always been on the list of options for boss David Moyes.

    And having been unable to bring in other younger players the Hornets man is now the main priority.

    DEM IT

    Ousmane Dembele's refusal to leave Barcelona 'closed the door' on the signing of Memphis Depay, according to reports.

    Manchester United came close to signing Dembele on loan on deadline day but the Frenchman turned his back on the deal after Barca said they would only sanction the move if he signed a one-year contract extension at the club.

    Mundo Deportivo reports Dembele's departure would have freed up funds for a move for Lyon forward Depay but his decision to stay denied the ex-Man United man a dream move to the Camp Nou.

    Depay, 26, agreed personal terms with Barcelona weeks ago, and the Catalan giants had reportedly agreed a transfer fee with Lyon of £22million plus add-ons.

    Ex-Netherlands manager and new Barca boss Ronald Koeman had been keen to reunite with the player after working with him at international level.

    Whether Dembele has a future at Barcelona under Koeman is still uncertain.

    JU GOT HIM

    Juventus have signed Federicho Chiesa from Fiorentina in huge deal worth £54million after Manchester United fail to bring him to Old Trafford.

    The exciting winger, 22, has joined Andrea Pirlo's side on an initial two-year loan deal – with the move becoming permanent in 2022.

    Chiesa will now link up with Gianluigi Buffon, with whom the young winger's dad, Enrico, starred alongside at Parma.

    Man Utd had hoped to lure the 19-cap Italy international to England after starring in Serie A in recent seasons.

    But Fiorentina were adamant they wouldn't let Chiesa leave on loan.

    United had seen Chiesa a stop-gap loan signing before eventually making a move for Jadon Sancho.

    IT'S A SARR POINT

    Manchester United have seen their loan bid for Ismaila Sarr rejected by Watford, according to reports.

    The Red Devils desperately chased a hoard of right wingers during the transfer window.

    Most-notably, United missed out on £108million-rated top target Jadon Sancho.

    In a bid to plug the gap before making another push for the England star in 2021, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed in loan moves for Ousmane Dembele, Federico Chiesa and Douglas Costa.

    But Man Utd could still make a move for Watford ace Sarr despite seeing a loan bid rejected, according to Manchester Evening News.

    The Hornets are only willing to part with the former Rennes winger on a permanent deal.

    YOU'RE NOT A LOAN

    Chelsea have sent THREE more players out on loan as Marco van Ginkel, George McEachran and Juan Castillo take the loan army tally to 28 players.

    The Blues have sent all three players off to Holland for the 2020-21 season.

    Van Ginkel, 27, rejoins former club PSV Eindhoven – having not played a professional game in more than two years while recovering from a horror knee injury.

    Meanwhile, McEachran, 20, heads to MCC Maastricht and Castillo, also 20, links up with AZ Alkmaar.

    Dutch star Van Ginkel won two Eredivisie titles at PSV in 2015-16 and 2017-18.

    The midfielder was even captain for the second league win.

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Caught your breath from transfer deadline day yet?

    There is still plenty of fun to be had, with domestic deals allowed until October 16.

    After signing Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid, Arsenal continued their activity with a pair of youngsters arriving on Tuesday.

    Nikolaj Moller, 18, and Joel Ideho, 17, will join the Gunners' Professional Development Phase this season.

    Striker Moller is said to be a prolific goalscorer and arrives from Malmo in a deal completed on Monday, worth around £450,000.

    Pacy winger Ideho joins Arsenal after a brief spell in the Ajax academy, but spent the majority of his youth career with Willem II.

    Manchester United completed a handful of deals but could not land Jadon Sancho.

    Now, he is 'more likely' to join Liverpool or Bayern Munich.

    The Independent believe that the Reds will be able to pay what it takes to land Sancho next time around – with the player himself also interested in going to Anfield.

    Elsewhere, Chelsea defender Malang Sarr has signed for Porto.

    And West Ham are keen on Craig Dawson of Watford, who would cost £4million.

    That would push up the mega spending of Premier League clubs this autumn.

    Teams have splashed £1.24billion on new signings this summer, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

    The figure represents a £160m decrease from last season – but is still £70m more than was spent in the 2016 summer window.

    DRAX YER LOT

    Julian Draxler has admitted to considering a move from Paris Saint-Germain, amid interest from Leeds.

    The Whites were linked with the German midfielder last month by French media, but he chose to stay put.

    Draxler told Bild: “In the summer I thought about trying to do something else.

    “Due to the coronavirus situation, it was ultimately difficult to find a club where I would have said: 'Everything fits well together, I definitely want to [come here]'.

    “That was not the case, so I decided that I would not dare to take a quick shot and keep looking for my chance at Paris.”

    SUPER MARIO

    The midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Lokomotiv Moscow, moves from Inter Milan on a season-long deal.

    The French club confirmed on their website that he has left on a permanent deal.

    MANAGER TRANSFER
    The managerial merry go round continues in the Championship.

    Nottingham Forest have sacked Sabri Lamouchi and hired Chris Hughton.

    YOU’RE THE MAN

    Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman could be leaving on loan again this month.

    Watford and Middlesbrough are named by Goal as two clubs wanting to sign the Ghana defender.

    Rahman, 26, has spent time with Schalke, Reims and Mallorca after costing the Blues £14million in 2015.

    OPEN THE DAW

    West Ham will need to come up with a bid of around £4million to sign Watford defender Craig Dawson in the “domestic” window.

    The Hammers are turning their attention to the veteran centre-half, 30, having failed with a series of bids for more expensive defenders during the main transfer window.

    Bids of around £30m were knocked back for Burnley's James Tarkowski and Jonathan Tah of Bayer Leverkusen.

    And on deadline day, an attempt to sign Fikayo Tomori on loan from Chelsea fell through.

    Watford paid £4m to West Brom for Dawson a year ago, and are looking to get their money back. The Hornets are especially hopeful now knowing West Ham have few other options.

    BYE, GEORGE!

    George McEachran is following older brother Josh’s footsteps to join Chelsea’s loan army.

    The 20-year-old midfielder has signed for Dutch club MVV Maastricht for the season.

    After a short spell with SC Cambuur last campaign, the midfielder will be hoping for regular game time in the Netherlands.

    Chelsea have also confirmed the departures of youth players Jordan Aina and Marcel Lavinier, while Charlie Brown’s loan at Union SG has been ended.

    NOT A-LOAN

    Fans were left stunned last week as Chelsea announced the shock news of Ross Barkley's loan to Aston Villa.

    And when Ruben Loftus-Cheek's loan move to Fulham was confirmed yesterday, the England international became one of 25 players this season to be farmed out temporarily by the Blues.

    In being temporarily discarded by Chelsea, the midfield pair find themselves in pretty decent company.

    The Blues shipping out plenty of players on loan is nothing new, with 'loan army' jibes from supporters of other clubs having been going around for years.

    And this summer has been no different with Barkley, 26, and Loftus-Cheek, 24, waving goodbye to Stamford Bridge for the season.

  • Marc Mayo

    DONE DEAL

    Crystal Palace have sent centre-back Jaroslaw Jach on loan to Fortuna Sittard.

    The Dutch top-flight team will be the fourth temporary spell away from Selhurst Park for the 26-year-old, who joined from Zaglebie Lubin in 2018.

    Palace confirmed the deal on their website, stating: “The club wishes Jach all the best for his time in the Netherlands.”

    LOAN RANGERS

    A handful of loan departures at QPR have been confirmed.

    Joe Gubbins heads to Oxford City with goalkeeper Marcin Brzozowski signing for Jamie O’Hara’s Billericay.

    They follow Charley Kendall and Kai Woollard-Innocent out the door, the pair recently joining Eastbourne, with Aaron Drewe also heading for Oxford.

    TOTT OF THE POPS

    Alan Hutton believes Tottenham have had a fantastic transfer window.

    Swansea defender Joe Rodon remains in their sights after links with Antonio Rudiger and Milan Skriniar.

    But ex-Spurs man Hutton believes they have done very well either way, telling Football Insider: “I think they’ve had a fantastic window, that was probably the icing on the cake, to bring in another centre-half.

    “I think the ones they were looking to add would have been very good to come in and really strengthen them and kick them on even further. They’ve had a fantastic start and they only want to add to that.

    “They’re still looking at the boy from Swansea I’m sure they were saying and from all accounts he’s a decent player, so that’s still an option.

    “Probably a little bit annoyed he couldn’t get a couple of their transfer targets over the line but still a very good transfer window.”

    DONE DEAL

    OH CHO

    Manchester United may now miss out on Jadon Sancho… to Liverpool!

    The Premier League champions are described as ahead of their rivals in the race for the England winger.

    According to The Independent, Bayern Munich and Liverpool have both overtaken United after they failed to do a deal for Sancho this autumn.

    With the Borussia Dortmund star’s contract expiring in two years’ time, next summer promises to be very busy for the Bundesliga side.

    FOOTING THE BILL

    Premier League clubs splashed £1.24billion on new signings this summer, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

    The figure represents a £160m decrease from last season – but is still £70m more than was spent in the 2016 summer window.

    Chelsea were the league's top spenders, splashing £226.1m on fresh talent, including Timo Werner (£45m), Hakim Ziyech (£37m), Edouard Mendy (£22m) and Ben Chilwell (£50m).

    Manchester City were unsurprisingly second biggest spenders, splashing cash on Nathan Ake (£41m) and Ferran Torres (£37m) early on in the window.

    Burnley, meanwhile, hardly spent a penny, snapping up only Dale Stephens and Will Norris.
